Blackjack is one of the classic casino table games! Known formerly as ‘Twenty-One’ the game dates back to the early 17th century. From a player’s perspective the main objective of the game is to get a total of 21 or as close to 21 as possible without exceeding this total. The dealer starts the game by dealing two cards face-up to each player and finally a single card for himself, which is also face-up. Cards are counted at face value, Jacks, Queens and Kings count as 10, while Aces count as 1 or 11. Congratulations if your first two cards total 21, as this is known as ‘Blackjack!

6 card Poker
Six Card Poker is a poker variant game played heads up against the dealer. The object of the game is to win by having a better five-card poker hand than the dealer using six cards.
Russian Poker is the most popular casino table game in Russia simply because players have so many betting options available to them in a single hand and this makes for a very exciting experience. The dealer starts the game by dealing five cards face-down to the player and five cards for himself, the dealer’s top card is then turned face-up. The player will now decide whether to bet on their hand being better than the dealer’s one. Once all bets are placed the dealer opens his cards and the best hand wins! There are betting options for the player to place bonus bets, exchange cards, buy a 6th card and insure against the dealer failing to qualify. The dealer must have Ace/King or better to qualify.
Ultimate Texas Hold'em
Texas hold 'em (also known as Texas holdem, hold 'em, and holdem) is a variation of the card game of poker. Two cards, known as the hole cards, are dealt face down to each player, and then five community cards are dealt face up in three stages. The stages consist of a series of three cards ("the flop"), later an additional single card ("the turn" or "fourth street"), and a final card ("the river" or "fifth street"). Each player seeks the best five card poker hand from any combination of the seven cards of the five community cards and their own two hole cards. (If a player's best five-card poker hand consists only of the five community cards and none of the player's hole cards, it is called "playing the board". If you play the board on the river, then you can do no better than tie the other player(s) in the game if no player can make a better hand than the board represents, using either or both hole cards.) Players have betting options to check, call, raise, or fold. Rounds of betting take place before the flop is dealt and after each subsequent deal.
Stud Poker (Texas Hold'em and Omaha)
In North American casinos, the term "Omaha" can refer to several poker games. The original game is also commonly known as "Omaha high". A high-low split version called "Omaha Hi-Lo", or sometimes "Omaha eight-or-better" or "Omaha/8", is also played. In Europe, "Omaha" still typically refers to the high version of the game, usually played pot-limit. Pot-limit Omaha is often abbreviated as "PLO." Pot-limit and no-limit Omaha eight-or-better can be found in some casinos and online, though no-limit is rarer.
It is often said that Omaha is a game of "the nuts", i.e. the best possible high or low hand, because it frequently takes "the nuts" to win a showdown. It is also a game where between the cards in his hand and the community cards a player may have drawing possibilities to multiple different types of holdings. For example, a player may have both a draw to a flush and a full house using different combinations of cards. At times, even seasoned players may need additional time to figure what draws are possible for their hand.
The basic differences between Omaha and Texas hold 'em are these: first, each player is dealt four hole cards instead of two. The betting rounds and layout of community cards are identical. At showdown, each player's hand is the best five-card hand made from exactly three of the five cards on the board, plus exactly two of the player's own cards. Unlike Texas hold 'em, a player cannot play four or five of the cards on the board with fewer than two of his own, nor can a player use three or four hole cards to disguise a strong hand.
