Online casino: 3 casino classics

No matter what type of casino player you are, there are plenty of games ready and waiting for you to play – including the three classics we’re about to talk about in this article.

The three casino games, hailed by many players around the world as classics, that we’re going to delve into shortly, are Roulette, Blackjack and Slots.

So, if you’d like to know a little more about all three of these games, or one in particular, read on to find out more.


Roulette is a popular casino game that originated in 18th-century France. It’s a game of prediction, where players place wagers onto the table in the hope of successfully predicting where a small ball will land within a spinning wheel divided into numbered compartments.

The wheel is typically divided into 37 or 38 pockets, depending on the version being played – American or European.

There’s a multitude of bet types a player can place on the table, whether that be selecting a specific number, a range of numbers, or other betting options such as colours (red or black), odd or even numbers, or high or low numbers.

The outcome of the game is determined by the pocket in which the ball lands. If a player’s bet corresponds to the winning number or category, they win a payout based on the odds of that particular bet.


Blackjack, also known as 21, is a popular card game played in casinos worldwide both in person and online and can be played with one or more standard decks of 52 cards.

The objective of any game is to have a hand value closer to 21 than the dealer’s hand, without exceeding a total of 21.

The numerical value of the cards corresponds to their face value, while face cards otherwise known as royal or picture cards (i.e., King, Queen, and Jack) are worth 10, and the Ace can be worth either 1 or 11, depending on the player’s choice.


Online slot games are digital versions of traditional slot machines found in casinos and other gaming establishments. Slot games typically consist of a grid of reels, each containing various symbols. The number of reels and paylines can vary depending on the specific game a player selects to play.

To play, players select their wagering limit and click a button, often seen in games as ‘spin’ or two arrows circling, to spin the reels. When the virtual button is pressed, the symbols on the reels will come to life, spin and eventually come to a stop, revealing a combination of symbols.

Winning combinations are determined by specific paylines, which are lines that run across the reels, connecting matching symbols. When a winning combination appears on an active payline, players are awarded a prize based on the value of the symbols and the amount wagered. Again, prizes vary from game to game.
