Carnival games

15 October 2016

“Circus” or “carnival” games, as they are sometimes called, are those found in a casino that are considered “other” games from the old standard table ones such as blackjack, craps and roulette.

The idea is to get more players to the table games by introducing them to simple, easy-to-learn and easy-to-play games. In addition, many of those games offer high rewards with very limited card combinations. These are basically designed so they don’t take a lot of skill, training or practice to play.

Today, there are plenty of these new, different and exciting table games being offered by casinos all around the country. However, the basic rule for gambling in a casino is to avoid playing any games you know nothing about. If you are interested and want to play some of these new games, go to the Internet and play them for free.

There are many sites that offer the games without any cost. Many of them will also provide a tutorial on how to play them correctly. Just type in “casino games” and start playing.

Some of these games have been around for some time, others are fairly new. Here is a short list of the most popular ones: Let It Ride, Three Card Poker, Four Card Poker, Caribbean Stud, Spanish 21, Par Gow Poker, Ultimate Texas Hold’em, Mississippi Stud, Crazy “4” Poker, Sic Bo and Blackjack switch. Remember, the rule is to learn, study and then play.
