5 Most Popular Games in Casinos

Jan 15, 2021 Artyom Ustinov
Land-based and online casinos feature hundreds of games. There are so many titles that newcomers often face a difficult challenge — but where to start? Most of them opt for online slots simply because slots are the most popular type of casino games. However, they are definitely not alone.

In this article, we’ll explore the five most popular games in casinos and why they made it to this list. Let’s check them out.


Craps

Even though craps made it to the top five list, it’s not as popular as the remaining four games. Nevertheless, there’s a vast community worldwide that’s crazy about this game — especially in the US and Europe.

Craps is popular in land-based casinos as it allows up to 20 players to join, making it a very social game.

The gameplay itself is very immersive and simple. All you need to do is “shoot” the dice after placing a bet and see whether you’ve won the bet.

Finally, craps has the house edge that varies between 2% and 17%, which means it can be pretty rewarding if you apply the right strategy.

Baccarat

Baccarat is one of the oldest casino card games. Also known as Punto Banco, the game has been the favorite of many novice and professional players.

The goal of baccarat is to guess which hand will be closer to the value of nine. However, the real beauty of this game is that you can win money even if you have a losing hand. Namely, before every hand, you get to place a bet on a player, the banker, or the tie. If you bet on the banker, it means that you think the dealer will beat you. If your guess is right, you’ll win with a losing hand.

If you stick to a good baccarat strategy, you can expect the house edge of about 1.01% to 1.24%.

Blackjack

Blackjack is probably the most popular casino card game at the moment. One of the reasons why players like it so much is that it offers the lowest house edge of all games. If you stick to appropriate strategy charts, the house edge can be less than 1%.

Despite offering great chances to win, blackjack also has exciting gameplay, especially if you play it in land-based casinos or online with a live dealer.


Roulette

Roulette is the most popular table game in casinos. It offers plenty of bets, and players get to decide how much they want to risk. The two most widespread roulette variations are American and European, and the only difference is that the American one has two zero pockets.

Another reason why players love roulette is the social element that it offers. There’s always a crowd of people surrounding roulette wheels in land-based casinos, hanging out and testing their luck.

Slots

Slots are definitely the most popular casino game, even though many players don’t even consider them a standard casino game. They are so big that they’ve become a category of their own.

Slot machines come in all shapes and sizes, and casinos usually offer hundreds of different titles inspired by all kinds of themes.

Once upon a time, they had only one payline and three reels. Nowadays, slots can offer dozens — or even hundreds — of paylines across grids with 5+ reels. Many of them also offer lucrative progressive jackpots that turn the luckiest of players into multi-millionaires overnight.
