Table games are a fun way for Stake Casino players to enjoy the feeling of taking their seats at a table in a real casino.
Table games can take two forms: they can either be within the live dealer environment, where you’ll get to play with a live, professional dealer via HD streaming, or they can be more like a classic animated table that uses a real number generator to determine the outcome.
Whatever way you choose to play online casino table games, you won’t be stuck for variety.
If you think of casino table games, the first thing that springs to mind might be a traditional casino like you’d expect to see in Las Vegas or Atlantic City.
Gamblers sitting around a table in a vast casino filled with flashing lights, crowds of people, and the sounds of big wins. But that’s not how it started. Certain casino table games can trace their history back hundreds of years!
For example, roulette dates back to France in the 1700s, and even blackjack was developed in New Orleans in the 19th century. Dice-based games are even older than this, with ancient Egypt being the home of the original dice. Modern dice were developed in Asia and have been popular in different forms of gambling for many years.
It’s no surprise, then, that card and table games have been a mainstay of traditional casinos for as long as they’ve existed. Certainly, well before modern slot machines became what you most associate with today’s casinos.
Stake Casino has adopted table games as a major offering, including both live dealer games and more classic versions. You can learn more about how to play live casino games online at Stake, and get equipped with the skills to win at the virtual tables!
Here are the most popular table games you’ll find on the site.
Roulette is probably the casino table game that has the most different variations. At Stake Casino, you’ll see live dealer tables with Lightning Roulette, and European Roulette.
Roulette is easy to understand. There’s no doubt you’ve seen a roulette wheel before - it’s a significant feature of both traditional and online casinos. The wheel is divided into numbers, and you’ll place your bet where you think the ball will land when spun.
In the version of roulette that you’ll find in traditional casinos, the numbers on the table in front of you correspond with the numbers on the wheel, and when you play at Stake Casino, it’s no different.
The main difference between American Roulette and European Roulette (both of which you’ll find online) is that the American version features 0 and 00 symbols. In contrast, the European version just has a single 0. This means that the house edge is lower when you play European roulette.
Blackjack is one of the most popular online casino table games. If you’re more of a high roller, this is the game that usually caters most to you, as you can often find a blackjack game with limits into the hundreds.
The goal of blackjack is simple: you need to beat the dealer. You can play an online graphic table game or blackjack with a live dealer at Stake Casino.
Blackjack has a strategy element, making it somewhat unique compared to other online casino games (like slots). When you start, you get two cards, and your goal is to have the highest total but not exceed 21. If you don’t think your total is high enough, you can choose to “hit”, which means take another card, or if you’re happy with your score, you can “stand”.
As with other online casino table games, different blackjack variations have slightly different rules. You can learn about these rules with our how to play blackjack handbook.
In online casinos like Stake, poker is sometimes played as casino poker or video poker games. People are required to have some form of skill to win big in poker games online.
All casino poker games assume you know the rough hand rankings for poker, from a pair up to a Royal Flush. But don’t worry if you’re confused – each table game has clear instructions available.
You can also play different kinds of poker within the live dealer environment. For example, 3-Card Poker, Caribbean Stud Poker, and others are enjoyable games. The rules vary slightly, but the overall objective is always the same.. to beat the dealer. Explore the differences and basic rules with our online poker guide or our video poker guide.
It’s unlike the cut-throat poker you might see on TV or when you play poker with friends, where each player is out to beat the other players.
Baccarat isn’t a particularly complex online casino table game, so it’s great to try out if you’re new to Stake Casino or just want a bit of fun.
The aim of baccarat is to have a total that’s as close as possible to nine. As with blackjack, multiple bettors can play one game of baccarat (if you’re playing in a live dealer environment), but the competition is only between you and the dealer.
Baccarat has only three possible outcomes: the player wins, the banker (or the computer if you're playing online) wins, or it’s a tie.
You must start a hand by placing your bet on Banker, Player or Tie. The computer or live dealer then plays out the hand for you, so sit back and see how things pan out. You and the banker receive two cards. If either of you total eight or nine, that’s known as a natural win. If you land a much lower total, you’ll be dealt another card. Totals over ten have ten taken away. So, if you have 17, your score is 7.
The most common dice game at Stake Casino is craps. Here, you’ll need to bet on the total number that will appear on two dice. Craps is popular as a live casino game, where it’s quite interactive and can be tense.
Another popular option is Sic Bo, which originated in Asia. Sic Bo uses three dice, and players can bet on the exact numbers, combinations or ranges of numbers that will appear on the dice.
Other popular online casino table games include Hi-Low, Fan Tan, Andar Bahar and Teen Patti. Hi-Low might be the most straightforward online card game out there - you just need to bet on whether the next card dealt will be higher or lower.
The last two games are Indian in origin, although they can be found worldwide.
Andar Bahar has been a much-loved card game for over a century, and the simple rules make it a great addition to online casinos. Players take turns betting on different sides of the table, and the winner comes when a certain card is drawn on their side. Teen Patti is essentially a simplified version of 3-Card Poker.
