5 Casino Card Games You Need to Learn First

Written by  The Dubrovnik Times Sep 02, 2022

Casino card games are some of the most popular gambling games in the world. There are many different variations of casino card games, but they all have one thing in common: they're all based on chance. That means that anyone can win or lose at any time, no matter how good or bad they are at playing the game.

There are many different casino card games that you can learn how to play, but some of them are more popular than others. If you're new to the casino scene, or if you're just looking to brush up on your skills, here are four casino card games that you need to learn first.


Blackjack has got to be one of the most accessible card games ever invented. Not only is it easy to play, but it’s also very popular that you can play blackjack online on many sites. All this game is about is making the right decision and discreetly weighing down the risks.

In this game, you will be dealt with two cards face up, and the dealer will be dealt with also two cards but with one face down. So your goal would be to be closer to the number 21 without going over, also called busting.

You could choose to stand if you're content with your card. However, if you think you have a losing hand, you could choose to hit, making the dealer deal you another card. If your hand is closer to 21, you win and vice versa. Although blackjack is very simple, there are a lot of strategies you can use to be profitable in this game, which in all honesty, is another topic that deserves another article.


This is a classic casino game that you can see in most casinos nowadays. However, it's not as popular as blackjack, but it's still fun nonetheless. In this game, instead of competing with the dealer to have a hand closer to the number 21, in this game, you need to have a hand that is higher in value than the banker.

This game also has a low house edge advantage, so you don't need to worry about losing too much. Your goal in baccarat is to predict which hand would be higher in value. The choices would be banker, player, or tie. Having a tie in this game is non-existent since it's so rare, but it happens sometimes. However, the most profitable way to play this game is to always bet on the banker.

This is because the player has lower odds and payout, but the banker has higher in both aspects. However, the casino gets a commission whenever you win with the banker, but it's still more significant than your winnings with the player's hand.

Texas Hold 'em

If you're new to poker, you should know that Texas hold'em is just a poker variation. This variation is one of the most straightforward variations of poker, so it's a part of this list. Unlike classic poker, where you should look for a combination with five cards, Texas hold'em only consists of two cards, making it much easier to play.

Video Poker

Technically, this is a video game, but it still involves cards, so it deserves a spot on this list. Video poker, unlike classic poker, involves RNG (Random Number Generator) to determine the outcome of every deal.

RNG also plays a massive part in slot machines if you think the term is familiar. RNG is an algorithm that gives you random numbers to ensure fair results in any game.

So how does the game work? Like classic poker, you will be given five cards to deal with. You can pick which cards you want to throw and then be given the same number of cards you have thrown. Then, depending on the strength of your hand, you will be given a predetermined payout.

Like classic poker, video poker could also employ different game variations, including texas hold 'em, which we talked about just now.


Omaha is also one of the popular variations of poker, with popularity just second to Texas hold'em. Its popularity has been growing over the past decade, mainly due to its popularity online. There are also a lot of variations when it comes to Omaha. However, the most popular among them are pot-limit Omaha and Omaha hi-lo.

In this game, two to ten players can play simultaneously and will be dealt with using cards from the standard 52 deck. Every game will start with the pre-flop round. This will then be followed by the flop, turn, river, and ultimately, a showdown in which all players will reveal their cards.

People think Omaha is better than Texas hold'em because players can receive four cards, making it easier to create combinations. However, they can only use two cards and three community cards.

Final Words

Although all card games can be complicated with all the strategies involved, learning how to play them is pretty easy. You can even master some card games in only one or two nights. But, more importantly, they are fun to play and can be profitable if you choose to master them.
