Casino Games - Three Card Poker  Three card poker is a version of poker invented with the purpose of maintaining the competitive nature of poker, while making it faster. The game has since generated substantial revenue for casinos compared to most other casino games. Invented in 1994 by Derek Webb, the game is played using two modes of play. These two modes pit the player’s hand against the dealer’s. The first method of play is the ante mode and the second is the play wager.

The ante wager is dependent on the fact that the players hand will be better than the dealers hand. The ante and play wagers are placed before the cards are dealt. The player is then dealt their cards face down. After having a peak at their combination of cards, the player can then decide whether to proceed with the play wager. The cards are then compared to see who between the player and the dealer has a better hand. If the dealer wins, the player loses both the ante and play wagers. A player can also look at their cards and decide to fold, in which case they lose the ante wager. There is an ante bonus which the player wins if they get a straight flush, straight or three of a kind.

The game has become popular since its introduction because it’s more straightforward in nature than traditional poker. It is also fast paced so players canp lay more hands per hour than most table games involving cards. This can make for thrilling winning streaks if a player’s luck is in. Or dramatic ups and downs if the players fortunes are more variable.

Casino Games - Scratch Cards  Scratch cards are arguably one of the oldest form of lottery style gambling there is. Scratch cards differ by company or casino and are sometimes directly tied to a lottery. Other scratch cards are self contained games with a set number of prizes on offer. These tickets have a waterproof coating that players scratch to reveal whether they have won a prize. The scratch cards are bought from authorized vendors which may range from supermarkets to lottery stands, newspaper stands and casinos.

Tickets can win players an assortment of prizes, including small prizes or large sums of money into the millions. Sometimes, the instant win ticket may reveal your win or loss immediately after scratching and sometimes there might be a game to play, like matching symbols or using a lucky number to combine with a set of other numbers.

Scratch games are purely based on chance rather than any aspects of strategy. The likelihood that you may win the smallest prizes is of course more likely than one of the major prizes (of which there are typically far fewer on offer). Winning the actual jackpot is a very rare event, just as it is with any large scale game of chance.
