No matter how many new online casino games get released, there will always be the classics that can’t be replaced. These games have been around for hundreds of years and have a rich history that originate in Europe. Whether it be the street craps that was played in London alleyways, or the original roulette wheel that was based on Blaise Pascal’s perpetual motion machine, we’ve got the casino versions in our popular suite of Table Game Classics.
Craps is based on the English dice game called Hazard that was played as far back as the 14th century. People would roll two dice against a curb and bet for money. The American version we know and play today was made by American dice maker, John H. Winn in 1907.
Our classic version of online craps has the look and feel of a real casino craps table. It takes place on a virtual felt table with a standard betting layout. Rolling the dice is easier in the online version – just click the “Roll” button and watch the bones fly.
Games don’t get much more classic than blackjack. The game is believed to originate in France where it was created by combining Chemin de Fer and French Ferme. French colonists eventually brought the game to North America where it became incredibly popular and is now offered in all casinos.
Eight versions of online blackjack are available in the Blackjack section of our casino, and two of them are the Classic versions: Single Deck Blackjack Classic and 21 Blackjack Classic. The Single Deck version is closer to the original, before Edward Thorpe published Beat the Dealer in 1962. The book resulted in widespread changes to blackjack rules, including the addition of extra decks to thwart card counting.
What’s your preference: American or European? We have classic versions of both in the Table Games section of our casino. These online roulette games replicate the feeling of being at a brick-and-mortar casino thanks to their 3D effects and perpetually moving wheels. The virtual felt has a standard betting layout, complete with classic French bets like Voisins du Zéro, Orphans, and Tiers du Cylindre.
Let ‘Em Ride
The only modern game you’ll find in our suite of classics is the poker-inspired Let ‘Em Ride table game, which was released in 1993. The rules are simple: place an Ante bet and receive three cards face-up, and two cards face down. Choose to Raise or Let it Ride twice, as each of the two face-down cards on the board are revealed. If you have at least a pair of 10’s, you win.
