Casino Games - Bingo

bingo casino game
Bingo is one of the games available in many casinos around the world. The game is played for either cash or various prizes. So popular is the game that close to $100 million is spent every week on the game in North America.


History


Bingo was first played in 1530 in Italy after the country was unified. At the time, it was called Lo Giuoco del Lotto d'Italia. Since then, the game has been played at weekly intervals in many countries around the world.


Rules


There are different variants of Casino Bingo, but the general rules aren’t very different. Players start by buying bingo tickets that have a 5x5 grid. Then the caller randomly chooses numbers and calls each number as players check and mark it on the tickets they bought. A player that completes the winning pattern is determined to be the winner.


Notable winners


In January 2008, Christine Bradfield from Bargoed bagged £1.1 million, which is one of the biggest wins in recent years.

Caisno Games - Caribbean Poker

caribbean poker game
Caribbean poker is a common casino game with the same rules as a five-card poker, except that players compete against the casino, not each other. This means you can’t use common strategies like bluffing.


History


While there are conflicting views regarding the origin of Caribbean Poker, there are many who attribute the game’s early beginnings to Michael Titus and Dane Jones. The two supposedly learned the game in the 1980s  in Las Vegas from another gambler.


Rules


After placing an ante, players, as well as the bank, are assigned five cards each drawn from a standard 52-card deck. Once the players look at their cards and have seen the face-up card that’s dealt the banker in the beginning, they can either decide to double their stake or surrender to the bank.


Probability


The probability of winning with royal flush is 0.000001.


Notable winners


Sam Greenwood, a Canadian, is one of the biggest winners in the game’s history, having walked away with $1 million in 2017.

Casino Games - Red Dog


Red dog poker is a variant of acey-deucey that’s played in many casinos. The game, like other variations of poker, is played with cards and players rely on chance to win. Many casinos
feature this game online, although its popularity on land was at its peak years ago.


History


Red Dog’s History in the US goes back to the 1800s when it was called In-Between. But, due to its rules that made the game extremely easy to cheat, the game's popularity among the natives suffered. In 1931, the game was reintroduced upon legalization of gambling in Las Vegas. This time, new rules were formulated to go with the game’s new name.


Rules


Red dog poker is played with three cards at any given time. The cards are given the same ranking as in poker: aces being high and suit irrelevant. Then the players make a wager, and two cards
are put on the table, face up. From the three possible outcomes of the game, a decision is made on how to proceed.


Probability


When using a 6-card deck, the probability of a spread of one is 0.077419.
