As players wager at online casinos they will come to understand the intricacies of online wagering. However players should have a basic idea of what to expect otherwise they will navigate aimlessly without enjoying the experience.
The main products that online casinos offer are the games. Knowledge of the range of games on offer will help the new player in selecting the game appropriate to his requirements. Online casinos classify the games into groups so as to make navigation easier. All casinos do not follow the same system but the following classification is most common. The groups are table games, video poker games and slot games. Table games are those games that are played on tables in land casinos, whereas video poker and slots are played on computer screens. Table games are sometimes further split as card games and table games (which refer to the table games that do not use cards).
The most common card games are blackjack and baccarat. Both these games have low house edges and therefore ideal for beginners. Baccarat is the simpler game but requires no skill. The blackjack rules are a bit more complex but the outcome of the game depends to some extent on player skill. This makes blackjack more enjoyable. Hence new players would do well to familiarize themselves with blackjack before venturing into online casinos. There are several demos and tutorials available on the Internet and the player can exercise the play for free option at online casinos till he gains confidence. The other card games are poker based. Some of them are Tri Card Poker, Caribbean Stud Poker and Let It Ride. In these games the players do not play against each other as in poker, but each player plays individually against the dealer as in blackjack. These games are referred to as casino poker games because poker hand rankings are used to decide which hand is better. New players can leave these games for later.
The main table games are roulette and craps. Roulette is the most popular land casino game and though it has a higher house edge than blackjack it is preferred by many for its glamour value. Roulette is a simple game and requires no skill and should be the first choice in table games. If different forms of roulette are offered the first choice should be French roulette, the second choice should be European roulette and the last choice should be American roulette. Craps is filled with sucker bets and new players should not venture into this game unless they can differentiate between the good bets and the sucker bets. Keno is another commonly played table game. Some online casinos, however, classify it in Other Games or Specialty Games.
