Table Games

Back to Guide

When you play in an online casino, you’ll notice that there are many different types of table games offered for you to try. All of them share a few similarities, most notably that they’re played against the house, but they are also quite different from each other.

If you’re new to casino gaming, you may be a little unsure about what counts as a table game as the term isn’t widely used outside of the casino world. Don’t worry though, you’ll almost certainly be familiar with all of the most popular table games that you can find online.

As their name suggests, table games are ones that are played on a table, typically the type you see covered in green felt. They almost always involve either cards, a wheel, or dice and have space for you to place chips down to make bets.

When you play online, the tables are recreated with digital graphics, but they work in exactly the same way.

If you want to try your hand at a few table games, here are the most popular options you’ll find available here at Wildz.

Blackjack

Blackjack is one of the oldest card games still played today. In it, you compete against the dealer to make a hand that’s as close to 21 as possible, without going over.

To start, you’re each dealt two cards. Both of yours will be placed face-up on the table, while the dealer will have at least one of them face-down. You can then choose to request an extra card (hit) as many times as you like or stick with what you have (stand). The dealer will then reveal his/her hand and follow the same process as you.

The winner is the one with the highest-value hand that’s 21 or below.

When you play online blackjack, you’ll notice that there are multiple variants, such as those that include side bets or that let you have more than one hand at a time. Regardless, they all follow these same basic rules, so you’ll find it easy to try different options.

Roulette

Roulette is another popular table game that’s been around for centuries. Just like blackjack, online roulette replicates the land-based game by swapping out a physical table with a digital one. Aside from that, it’s played exactly the same way.

The dealer spins a wheel that contains 37 or 38 different pockets, each with its own number. Your task is to predict which pocket the ball will land in when it comes to a stop, and you do this by placing your chips down on the table in a corresponding box.

You can pick an individual number, a group of numbers, or a colour and your payout will vary depending on which of these you choose.

There are several variants of roulette available, including both American and European versions. The main difference between these is that American wheels contain an extra pocket which increases the house edge slightly.

Baccarat

Baccarat is another popular casino table game that, like blackjack, is played using cards. The similarities go much further than this too as it is played between two people: the player and the banker.

They are both tasked with making the best-valued hand which, in baccarat, is nine. The values of the cards are slightly different with A worth 1, number cards worth face value, and 10 and picture cards worth 0.

You can draw an extra card, though you’re limited to just one. You also can’t go bust, but if your score is 10 or more, then you must subtract 10 from it (e.g., 11 would become 1), devaluing your hand. You must, therefore, think strategically about your choices.

Just like the other table games, you can find multiple variants of baccarat here at Wildz.

Poker

Poker comes in many shapes and sizes, with the original versions being games that you play against other players rather than just the dealer. However, you can now find table game variants that see you compete against the house instead, similar to how blackjack works.

Some of the most popular versions of this type of poker include Three Card Poker and Caribbean Stud Poker, though you’ll find many other options too.

These games require you to make a strong hand out of the cards you’re dealt, using the same rankings found in most other poker variants. So instead of adding up the value of each card, you’re looking to hold a combination of different ones.

For example, in Texas Hold’em table poker, the best hands are: Royal Flush – The A, K, Q, J, and 10 of a single suit. Straight Flush – Five consecutive cards from the same suit. Four of a Kind – All four of the same value cards, one from each suit.

Craps

Craps is a dice game where your aim is to predict the outcome of a roll. Like with roulette, a craps table contains spots for you to place chips, depending on which numbers you expect to be rolled.

It’s not simply a case of just picking a number like in roulette, as there are multiple bet types that you can place, creating a lot of different strategies for you to try out. You also have the option to place your bets with or against the person throwing the dice (the “shooter” at the time.

Craps is one of the most popular online table games because it offers a very low house edge. The exact percentage varies depending on the wagers you make, but it can be as low as 0.83% with a 2X Don’t Pass/Come bet.

Live casino table games

You can find live casino versions of most table games, including all the ones listed above. These live casino games work in the same way as other versions but instead of using computer-generated graphics to display the cards, chips, wheel, and table, you’re shown a live video feed of a real-life dealer and physical equipment.

The dealer will control the game, just as they would in a land-based casino, spinning the wheel, dealing the cards, and letting you know when you can and can’t place bets. They’ll also interact with you and the other players, reading the comments left in the live chat box and replying by talking to the camera.

The rules of the live table games are the same and you can also find multiple variants, just as you would with traditional online options. This all comes together to create one of the most exciting, immersive, and social casino playing experiences possible
