Card games today are very different from those that stood at the origins in the 9th century. And all because the real excitement has been replaced by a virtual one. And this is not the worst format. On the contrary, it has its advantages. The fact is that now you can play 24/7, choosing high-quality simulators or software adapted for playing with a live dealer in online gambling clubs. Moreover, in the second variant, the “substitution” is practically not felt, since the opponent is real, even if he is at a distance.

For beginners, let’s take a look at the main types of casino card games. That is, those entertainments that are presented in regular and online lounges most often.


We call it primarily because of its age and reputation in gamblers’ circles. It is believed that the history of the existence of this entertainment goes back more than five centuries, but it became the one we are used to only by the end of the 19th century. Popular types of poker today are the famous Texas Hold’em, Stud, Omaha Hi, Draw poker (with an exchange).

The rules in different types differ in the number of participants in the party and the number of cards in the deal. And the main task of the players is to collect the maximum combination before the opponent. Moreover, this is also true in online games, which have significantly squeezed entertainment from ground-based halls. But only slot machines now have such “goodies” as doubling the winnings, while Live casinos provide generous bonuses and the opportunity to take part in tournaments with large prize pools. Thanks to this, poker fans have recently become much more.

Black Jack

Another name for this casino card game is 21. Which literally describes its rules in one word. The winner in blackjack is the one who collects cards, the sum of the points of which will be equal to 21 or close to that. The main thing is that the dealer has fewer points combinations at the time of opening.

Why don’t gamblers pass by? The secret to the popularity of blackjack is its simplicity. And by analogy with poker – a variety of variations with identical rules. This is convenient, since now in online clubs, simple games are often chosen, where serious amounts are played.


Another hit of recent years is baccarat , which is not distinguished by the intelligence of poker, and does not require concentration, as for blackjack. It uses 6-8 decks and provides a special system for calculating the cost of cards. And the task of the participants is not to win, but to name the winner, giving preference to another player or croupier.

These are just three of the most popular casino card games that everyone has heard of. There are others, but it is poker, blackjack and baccarat that have taken root in the favorites of gamblers and gambling software manufacturers, who have made it possible to play online with really lively emotions. Using high-quality machines and in the mode and a real dealer.
