The most popular casino table games in Canada
Canada is world-famous for Canadians’ passion for various casino activities. Canadian gamblers especially like to play table games in online casinos because it is a relaxing and profitable pastime. Let’s talk about the most famous types of casino games in Canada. Here’s the list:
Roulette. There’s no doubt — this is the one of the most appreciated and well-known casino games in the world, even for people who don’t gamble. This game gradually evolved in different countries, and thus three main variants include: French, European, and American roulette. Each of these variants are different in nuances, but the core of the game remains the same across online casinos.
Blackjack. This section of casino table card games might be the most beloved one among Canadians specifically. In its foundation, the game is really simple, which allows creating different variants of it, each being equally exciting.
Poker. This game has a myriad of different rule sets such as pai gow poker, Let It Ride poker, Caribbean stud, and video poker. It is also widely played in Canada. Video poker casino table games play a really important role as they attract both new players and sophisticated gamblers, as it allows winning real money online by using strategy and analytic skills.
Baccarat. Another card game, which has all its rights to be in among the best casino games, should be mentioned here. Baccarat is loved by millions of players worldwide due to its uncomplicated gameplay. Baccarat players usually enjoy it as a substitution to blackjack when they are bored with it. But it’s worth noting that baccarat is also highly popular on its own.
Dice. This is another example of how a simplistic fundamental concept of throwing dice can inspire the creation of numerous variations. People roll craps from the very start of the history of the human race, but the way they roll them are very different. The outcome of each craps roll will be calculated differently and thus the results will vary. For example, playing Sic Bo, Rocket Dice, and Craps will result in two completely unique experiences.
Why are table games so popular in online casinos?
Great source of entertainment and convenience
Of course, there’s no accounting for taste, but slots appear to be monotonous in terms of gameplay for quite a lot of players. On the opposite, casino table games provide considerably more space for the use of imagination, skill, and strategy. It’s also really fun to play new online casino table games in the live dealer section since it’s as immersive as a real casino gaming.
In case you need to ask for help or inquire about your casino bonus, you can conveniently contact the customer service through the live chat directly on our casino site. Also, new games are added daily to our site, so there won’t be a chance to get bored! Of course, the slots library will always be a lot more extensive, but don’t get discouraged, casino games are also widely presented!
The quick play mode is a feature which isn’t available in land-based casinos, and it makes playing table games such as poker, blackjack, and craps (and other dice games) in online casinos for real money and Bitcoin way more entertaining. It allows you to play in a casual, relaxed manner, taking your time to chat with friends while still receiving an actual casino experience.
Generally, in casino table games you have better odds of winning and, accordingly, higher payout rates. Primarily, it is because you have a better control over the game, as compared to slots. Average bets are also higher in table games, which also considerably increases your profits. Additionally, you can freely use a casino bonus to play casino games on our site, which also increases your chances. And, last but not least, strategy has a direct impact on your gameplay and profitability, as opposite to slots.
Low house edge
Another significant feature that should not be overlooked by gamblers is the immensely low house edge in the majority of table games, particularly in online casinos. In other words, blackjack, baccarat, and craps casino table games will give you considerably more wins in perspective than online slots.
Blackjack table game core rules
The core idea of the blackjack game is extremely straightforward: you have to earn 21 points or less by acquiring cards with different values. However, this simplistic foundation allows for the development of blackjack variations and strategy. In our online casino you will find virtual blackjack tables with different gaming terms so that everyone would be satisfied. Online blackjack with the live dealer is also available, powered by Evolution Gaming.
So, what are the blackjack basics that are usually similar in all variations? Blackjack requires at least one 52-cards deck. They need to be shuffled before each hand. Cards are distributed to players one by one. The value for cards from 2 to 10 equals their numbers. Jacks, Queens, and Kings value 10 each. Ace values 1 or 11, as it depends on your choice. Your aim is to earn 21 points or less, and your score must be the highest among other players and/or the dealer. However, the value of each card might be different in various versions of blackjack, and other game nuances might differ too.
Guide to online blackjack
A blackjack deck must consist of 52 cards, ranging from 2 to ace. In the basic blackjack rule set you only need one deck to play, but the number of decks might go as high as 8 decks in one game.
Shuffling is done manually if you play in land-based casinos, but when you play blackjack online, a digital algorithm shuffles the deck for you in a completely random manner.
According to the Vegas rule, you can make an “insurance” bet if the dealer has an ace as his face-up card. Essentially, you bet that the dealer has a blackjack, and if he does, then the payout is 2:1.
Also, while you’re splitting your hand, the dealer is allowed to show his blackjack. In this case, split hands are returned to players, and their initial bet is considered to be lost.
Indeed, this is the most evident advantage of playing blackjack table games online, because you can simultaneously gamble for real money in several different tabs.
Poker varieties at our online casino
Undoubtedly, this is the most widespread version among numerous card poker games online. The core idea of this card poker game is to collect the highest ranking combination from your 2-card hand and 5 “community” cards on the table. Players make bets one by one and they have options to raise, hold, or fold their bets. This card poker game is really simplistic but takes long to master the perfect strategy. So, don’t hesitate to use a poker guide to learn new skills.
Oasis video poker
Unlike the previous card poker game, the Oasis variation of video poker is not that easy to take the grasp of. First of all, it is played against the dealer. Secondly, the player and the dealer are given 5 cards each, and player’s cards are all face-up, while only one dealer’s card is seen. Thirdly, there are no “community” cards, and you have to manage to win with your hand only. However, you can change your cards if you want to collect a desired combination. This is a challenging table game, but it’s far more interesting to play.
Caribbean video poker
Carribean stud is quite similar to the Oasis variation, but it is a lot more simpler and, accordingly, easier to learn. It’s also an ideal format for solo playing as it doesn’t include any baffling just as the Let It Ride poker. A fundamental feature that makes Carribean stud stand out is the fact that you play with the initial 5-card hand that was dealt to you from the start. You don’t have to think about changing cards — you just choose to play or fold.
This version of online video poker could be considered a simpler version of Caribbean poker, but with its own twist. You also play against the dealer, but you both are dealt three cards instead of five. But what’s interesting is that in Trey poker you have two playing modes: Ante Play and Pair Plus. Ante Play is the same as in Caribbean video poker, but in Pair Plus mode you have to collect a hand that contains at least two cards of the same value. Of course, this mode enables you to have higher payouts.
Pai Gow poker
This game is really interesting as it is actually a combination of two games. It originates from a Chinese game called pai gow, which is played with dominos. However, at some point somebody decided to play this Chinese game with poker cards, and that’s how pai gow poker was born.
Play roulette at our online casino
One can hardly doubt that roulette is one of the most well-known casino games across the world. Even people who are not interested in the peculiarities of gambling are familiar with the general layout of this casino classic and its gaming terms to some extent. In Canada, with the country’s leading position in the world in terms of active gamblers, this game is immensely widespread. Thanks to Evolution Gaming software provider, you can play all new kinds of roulette in the live dealer mode in different languages and rule sets, for example, Double Ball Roulette.
Gamblers love to play casino table games online for real money and Bitcoin because it brings them the thrill and excitement of chasing a big win. And, of course, our online casino offers a generous welcome bonus, jackpots and promotions, making your gaming in our casino to be the most exciting online gambling experience. We give you an opportunity to try your luck in different roulette versions: you can play French, European, and American versions of this game. You just might play them all at the same time, thanks to several tabs available!
This is probably the world’s most widely played table game as this version is standard in the majority of brick and mortar casinos and online casinos as well. However, when gambling in our online casino, you’re welcome to choose what you want, including gaming with your casino bonus. European wheel features 36 numbers and one green zero pocket, just like when you spin the French wheel. But what defines roulette is its betting rule, so let’s talk about the types of bets you can place in this version of a classic game.
Inside bets. There are five of them: Split, Street, Trio, Corner, and 6 Line.
Outside bets. There are eight of them: Column, Dozen, Low or High, Odd or Even, and Red or Black.
And, of course, there are Straight Up bets, where you place a bet on a single digit. This type of bet has the highest payout rate of 35:1. If you want to feel the rush of adrenaline and have a true experience of casino games, come try your luck in European roulette!
French roulette is known to be the original version of this table game. As it is obvious from its name, the game in its current form was created in France in the 18th century. In general, French version is nearly identical to European in terms of betting. But La Partage and En Prison rules change the game dramatically, as they can partly secure the bets you place in the case of loss, giving you some kind of cashback bonus.
Also due to its French origin, the types of bets are traditionally written in French. The most popular examples of bets you can place are Voisins du Zéro, Tiers du Cylindre, Orphelines, Jeu 0, along with La Partage, and En Prison. However, it’s not a problem if you’re not fluent in French: the title of each bet is always translated in English on our site, and you can also play in authentic language with the live dealer as well.
Canadian gamblers often ask: which casino games have the best odds? Of course, it is difficult to answer this question with certainty. However, French roulette appears to be one of the most favourable casino table games for players in terms of winning odds, mostly due to La Partage and En Prison. The best part is that due to this unique rule set of French version, the house edge of this table game can go as low as 1.35%! And, of course, the layout of French roulette table, wheel, and ball in our online casino is beautifully designed and animated.
This variation of classic casino attraction is the adaptation of European version for casinos in America. The betting terms are almost equal to the one that is played in Europe. The primary difference is that American variant has not one, but two green pockets: Zero and Double Zero. Also, the numbers on the wheel are positioned in a different pattern.
However, the main aspect that makes this version stand out (and not in a good way) is its house edge rate. To put it simply, the house edge in this variation is artificially raised to make casinos more profitable, being as high as 5.26%. Therefore, when playing American roulette, you are more likely to lose your funds when you’re gaming for a while. Nevertheless, some players find this version to be more interesting since stakes are higher. So, pump up your adrenaline in the best casino table games!
