Hi again! I’ve been away now a bit, since I have had a lot of things to do. I have been playing quite a lot of casino games online, and I’ve found a new thing to look for. It’s not a big favourite quite yet, but I think it’s a nice complement to live casino and slots.
It’s of course Video Poker I’m talking about! The old, classic things that completely sparkle of nostalgia! Almost every casino has some to choose from and it’s easy to learn. When you are a bit tired of the usual slots and all the card games, it’s quite nice to change to go over to the more simpler games. Although, I don’s say the video poker are easy games. it all depends on how much time and energy you want to put in. It can be as easy as playing a little bit for fun, and it can be as hard as advanced and complex strategies.
Mostly I donated use any specific strategy, I just focus on having a good time. Well, I do think about the hand ranking and hoping for the best, but I don’t go any further than that. Mostly I play Deuces Wild and Joker Wild, since I like to have it a bit easier. I sometimes play tens or better just because I kind of like it, but mostly the ones that has a wild card in them. It kind of reminds me a bit of slots, but it still gives me something else.
Unfortunately there is not many bonuses when it comes to video poker. Also there is not any free spins or any things like that. And if you have bonus money, your wager will not count to reduce the demanded wagering amount of the bonuses. However, I think it’s quite nice to sit by the computer and play some poker infused game all by my self, just to have something else than the spinning slots. I get to affect it a little bit, and most of it is just good old randomness. Oh, you can on some games get an RTP on over 100%, if you play with the correct strategy. I have not tried it yet, but I’m thinking of doing it soon.
Anyhow, I hope you all are well, and that I will check in on you soon again!
Blackjack is one of the most popular online casino card games. To make sure you do not lose, you have to be aware of basic rules of a game. You have to know when you can hit, when to double or when to take the insurance. Every decision that you take may have the significant impact on final outcome of a game.
Your goal in blackjack is to beat the dealer and to get as close as to 21 as you can (not over 21, then you bust). In blackjack faced cards count as ten. Both you and dealer will start a game with 2 cards each. The dealer may have a single card faced down and the other card faced up and you will get both cards faced-up. After getting your cards, you choose to hit or stand. Before doing this, you can also double (you then double your wager and take only one card) or split (make two hands if two cards have same value). If you choose to stand you won’t take any more cards and if you chose to hit you can ask for more cards until you are satisfied with the number or you bust.
After your turn, it’s the dealer’s turn to play. The dealer may continue to hit until he or she beats you or busts. The dealer must either stand on 17 or continue to draw depending on the game. If you beat the dealer you win!
In the beginning of the round, if the dealer’s faced-up card is an ace, you may consider taking the insurance. That means you place half the value of the original bet to an insurance that the dealer has blackjack. If the dealer has blackjack you loose your regular bet, but win the insurance bet. If the dealer does not have the blackjack, then you will win a game by having the better hand, however lose an amount that you bet on the insurance. Also you can loose both the insurance bet and the original bet if the dealer’s hand is not blackjack, but simply better than yours.
What I’ve read and in my own experience it’s never good taking an insurance, so I usually don’t. At least I read it at casinoomega.com when searching for some tips on how to play blackjack online.
