Five Top Table Games for Your Next Party

January 6, 2017

Home casinos are all the rage today. You can bet small and pull out when you feel like it. The problem is that not everybody is familiar with most casino games. Some have complex rules that some players cannot hope to learn in a couple of hours. It’s also expensive to hire a slot machine. So what games should you play if you have a home casino night?

Roulette Wheel

The Roulette Wheel is one of the simplest casino games. You can buy home Roulette kits from most toy and game retailers and online. All you need is a wheel, a ball and the mat with the cells to place your bets. Watch the fun unfold as your players take bets on where the ball will land. Although some of the bets are complex, you can make the game at your home casino simpler by deciding that some options are out of bounds.

Blackjack (And Its Variations)

No player need feel daunted by card games. Blackjack (and its variations such as 21 or Pontoon) is one of the easiest games to play. Be clear on the rules, as some people may be familiar with one version and not the other. Either way, all variations on the “21” games are simple and accessible for those who have never played a card game. It’s fun too! Simply, players compete against each other and attempt to make the number 21 from their hand by sticking with their hand or choosing an extra card.

Poker

Poker is one of the most popular and glamorous of card games. That said, it’s not easy to learn all of the rules. Some of your virgin players may struggle at first. Thankfully, there are many versions of poker – some poker variations are easy to learn, others not so much. The great thing about the game is that you don’t have to be a great player in order to win a hand. Poker is all about bluff, after all. You can win with a bad hand if you can convince other players that it is a good hand.

Craps

The dice game is a number simple casino game you may wish to play at home. Most households have dice. As we are all so familiar with this diverse playing piece, picking up the rules as you go should be easy. There are no competitors in this type of game, so there would be no motive for people not to help those unfamiliar with the game to understand the rules, and what constitutes a winning or losing throw.

Baccarat

Mistakenly believed to be one of the more difficult games to learn, Baccarat is no longer as popular in casinos as it once was. It became a glamorous game thanks to James Bond. In the books, Bond was a keen baccarat player. In the recent film version of Casino Royale, Baccarat was switched for Texas Hold Em Poker. It works on a simple premise and if there are four or more of you, this can be fun and exhilarating. Two players compete against each other while everyone else bets on who will have the higher value hand. Many hours of fun guaranteed.

How to Win at Roulette Like a Bond Girl

June 8, 2016

Bond Girls had it all; the looks, the money and the luck in the casino. But worry not! You too can have some of that some Bond Girl luck and make some big wins in the casino for yourself. Here’s how…

 

Flirt your way to winning

Quite simply, you can flirt your way to a big win. Whether you flirt with the dealer of each game or whether you flirt with the general manager of the casino themselves, you can quite easily flirt your way into winning if you play your cards right (pardon the pun). 

 

Win by association

A lot of Bond Girls were often lucky because their husbands or fathers were valued members of the casino, or even owned the casino. If you know someone who is high up at the casino, such as an investor or shareholder, make yourself known to the dealers, and you’re sure to get lucky all night long. 

 

Drink your way to winning

Not you personally. Find a man to partner up with all evening and keep his drinks flowing. When he needs taking back to his bedroom, put him to bed like a polite young lady… and then steal all of his winnings from the night. As saucy and sly as a true Bond Girl! 

 

Win as a lucky charm

Agree to be a man’s lucky charm for the night as long as you get a portion of all of his winnings. Better yet, wait until his back’s turned at the bar and then take all of the winnings in sly and sneaky Bond Girl style! 

 

Guilt trip your way to winning

Are you just having the worst time? Did your cheating husband run off with all your money? Are you trying to win some back? Probably not, but who cares? Bond Girls were conniving at the best of times, so make sure to use this trait yourself to try and earn some extra winnings.

 

Cheat your way to winning

Bond Girls always knew how to cheat. Learn some tips from the movies or look some up online. Yes, technically it is illegal to cheat at the casino, but did this ever stop a Bond Girl before? No! So don’t let it stop you either. 

 

Shoot your way to winning

If worst comes to worst, whip a gun out from a suspender under your dress (as obviously, that’s where they’re stashed in Bond Girl style) and hold the dealer at gunpoint while you take every last penny possible. Of course, this method is not advisable but if you want to be a genuine Bond Girl… well. Why not give it a go? 

 

Alternatively, you could just study up on the rules of roulette and make a genuine win, because a lot of Bond Girls were just genuinely good at casino games! But hey, where’s the fun in that?
