Baccarat - Punto Banco
First on the list is the Tables Game that’s seen a fair amount of publicity in some books and even in numerous films - you guessed it! Baccarat! The origins of this game are disputed but the game enjoyed a veritable heyday in France, with the nobility taking a real shine to it. Some experts believe that the game was introduced in France from Italy after French soldiers returned from the Franco-Italian War. Baccarat, also known by its most common variant, Punto Banco, is one of the most popular games in land-based casinos across the world. This classic card game is a high-roller favorite and is actually quite simple despite the fact that it appears to be extremely technical. The reason that this elegant card game appears a lot more difficult to play than it really is, could be attributed to its appearance in a number of 007 films and of course in Ian Fleming’s, Casino Royale novel, with James Bond vying against villains for the best hand and of course ridiculously high stakes.
How to play Punto Banco
The card game of Punto Banco is simply a comparing game, no more complicated than a simple coin toss in the fact that the gambler is only given a limited number of options to wager on. These options directly correspond to the three possible outcomes of gameplay; the gambler has the option of backing the ‘Player’ (punto) to win with a higher score or the ‘Banker’ (banco) to win, which are simply classifications for the two hands dealt out of the shoe by the dealer, with the Player receiving the first card followed by the Banker. But then there’s also a third option and that’s the Tie, which does happen once in a blue moon. The basic premise is to pick the hand (either the Player’s hand or the Bank’s hand) which totals closest to 9. There are only a handful of rules to remember with the first being that the cards 2 through 9 carry their same face value, while the 10, Jack, Queen and King carry a value of 0 and the Ace has a value of 1.
If the numbers drawn per hand add up to greater than 9, the first digit of the number falls away, for example, the banker draws 9 and 7 which totals 16. Following the rule that the first digit falls away; the banker’s hand is now worth 6. But beware, a hand that adds up to 10 is worth 0 as the first digit, - 1 - is dropped. If either the Player or the banker’s totals are 5 or less, they’ll hit again with a maximum of three cards per side usually needed to complete the round. If either the Player or the Banker has a total of an 8 or a 9, they both stand. The round ends, and the hand is evaluated. The next thing to remember is that the banker hand pays 95% with the casino taking 5% commission, the player hand on the other hand pays even money while a bet on a Tie result will award the gambler with odds of 8/1. If the gambler didn’t bet on a Tie result and it occurs, the stake will be returned.
Players will also be able to wager with a large variety of chip values making the game even more accessible to wide range of bankrolls, with chips available to the value of 1, 5, 10, 25, 50 and 100. A convenient feature on Saucify’s, Punto Banco, is the fact that gamblers can keep track of the last 9 results which could bode well for those who are playing with a strategy. In addition to that, the game has also been streamlined to make things even simpler for the gambler with each hand’s total spoken out loud negating the need for the gambler to do calculations which could become tiresome if a lot of hands are played. Lucky Creek online casino uses Classic Mini Baccarat rules and 6 decks of cards and the player cannot bet on both the Player and the Banker but can instead opt to back one of the two plus the Tie option. Punto Banco proves to be an extremely easy game to play with loads of excitement and to top it all off, the game features sound effects that simulate that of a land-based casino complete with murmuring spectators along with snide remarks made by a character that sounds suspiciously similar to James Bond and of course his nemesis also comments when a hand doesn’t go as planned, something that may become a bit tedious after a while but never fear, you can always disable this feature after its charm has worn off.
Lucky Creek boasts a variety of Keno games that are exceedingly simple to understand as the game bears an uncanny likeness to the modern-day lottery, making it the ideal game for players who simply want to sit back and have a grand old time. Keno’s popularity is steadily increasing with a number of land-based casinos also offering this easy albeit entertaining game. The game is believed to have its origins in China and was supposedly brought to the West during the 19th century by Chinese immigrants who sailed across the Pacific Ocean.
How to play Keno
Keno’s rules are incredibly easy to grasp, and players can easily master this game in a matter of minutes. The game requires the player to select the minimum amount of numbers from a grid of 80 numbers, but they are able to select more than that if they so wish - up to the maximum amount of numbers specified by the particular Keno variation. Players can easily select the numbers by either tapping them on a tablet or mobile or by clicking on the numbers on a PC or laptop. The same process also works for deselecting numbers in the case of selecting too many numbers or making amendments to your selection. As the player selects numbers, a paytable on the screen will display the corresponding odds for the number of correct selections with payouts awarded for most of the numbers depending on the amount of numbers selected. Next up, the player is required to select their stake or coin size and then put the game in motion by pressing play. The winning numbers will then be displayed at the bottom of the screen with the player’s corresponding numbers highlighted in a different color and their winnings displayed on the screen.
Some Keno variations include unique features that aren’t ordinarily found in the stock version of the game, with various alternative takes on the Multiplier feature which is always a welcome addition to any win. It couldn’t be any simpler and those who favor Bingo and like to play the lottery are sure to get their fast-paced thrills with this game. The best part? Players have a choice between multiple variations of this game at Lucky Creek with no less than four exciting games on offer.
Now if you thought that Keno was the simplest game available at our casino, you’d be sorely mistaken as there’s yet another game that’s even easier to play! We know it’s hard to believe but it’s true! Enter the Scratch Card – the virtual version of the traditional scratch card!
How to play Scratch Cards
As you can imagine there’s only a few steps to playing this game, with the first step being the purchase of a card. This is done by setting the coin size and selecting the New Card button on the screen. Once the purchase has been made, the game offers players the option of scratching the panels off one by one to reveal the symbol (more anticipation of a big win) or opting for the game to automatically reveal all of the panels in one fell swoop for those who prefer not to be on tenterhooks.
If the player receives a card that features three of the same symbols, they win the amount represented by that particular symbol which could be worth anywhere from 1 to 200 coins. The amount won will be multiplied by the coin size and in this instance, it would be wise to wager a larger number which could result in a larger win. The coin sizes available for all of the Scratch Cards available at the Lucky Creek Online Casino are 1, 5, 10 and 25 which allows any bankroll to get in on the action. Some of the Scratch Cards also boast a Multiplier up to x5, with all winning combination multiplied which, as you can imagine, makes large wins all the more possible. All wins will be displayed in both coin and credit value for ease of keeping tabs on the gaming balance. This is a really easy to play game that’s sure to have players coming back for more. Add to that the fact that there’s a certain nostalgia involved, and you’ve got a real winner on your hands.
