Blackjack

By | February 3, 2020

Blackjack Blackjack is a relatively simple casino table game that has been popular for many years. This game stems from a game known as twenty-one and was first mentioned by Miguel de Cervantes in his novel “Rinconete y Cortadillo”. Although the two games have a similar object, the game of Blackjack evolved after bonuses for drawing a jack of spades or clubs along with an ace of spades was introduced.

The main objective of this game is to beat the dealer. This can be done in one of three ways. By getting 21 points with the first two cards that are drawn while the dealer does not, letting the dealer draw additional cards to reach 21 points or by obtaining a final score that is higher than the dealers score without collecting more than 21 points. If a player does exceed 21 points they are automatically disqualified from the round as they have gone “bust”.

Bets in Blackjack work on a 3-2 payoff basis. This means that a win on a £5.00 bet will receive a £7.50 payout. This game is incredibly popular because the odds are high in your favour when you play around against the dealer who only has a 1% house edge.

Bingo

Bingo Bingo is traced back to Italy in 1530 where it was an Italian Lottery from where it moved to France and later to Germany. Bingo is one of the very few gambling forms that is played by young and old, including various locations anywhere from casinos to churches and even care homes.

In 1996, the first online bingo games launched as Bingo Zone and two years later Bingo Blitz followed. In traditional bingo, bingo balls are used, while random number generators are used in online bingo. Different casinos and bingo halls apply their own rules; however, the basics are simple. You have more than one version too, with American Bingo playing with 75 numbers and European Bingo having 90 numbers.

90 ball games have 27 squares that contain nine columns and three rows. Every row has four blank squares and five numbers. Any possible number between one and 90 appears on a bingo strip and if you play 40 ball bingo you obviously have fewer numbers.

You would deduct that 90-ball bingo is more difficult than 40 balls, but casinos often only have 90 or 75 ball bingo variants. You need to cross off the bingo board numbers as they appear or are called, and you will win according to the pattern drawn.
