4 Most Popular Casino Games

by Kevin Smith Author

Even if you’re not much of a gambler, a casino can make for a fun experience. There are a number of games and activities that you can take part in during your visit. If this is your first time visiting a casino, you may not know all of the games or how they’re played. Knowing what you might like before you arrive will help you put a plan together to further enjoy your visit. Here are some of the most popular games you’ll find at a Shawnee, OK casino.

Slot Machines

Probably the most commonly played game at a casino is the slot machine, often referred to as slots. While many games have strategy built in, this one is rather simple. You simply place your coin into the machine, pull a lever or push a button, and the wheel will spin. The wheel will eventually stop, revealing a series of patterns. These patterns will determine how much money you win.


Along with poker, blackjack is one of the most popularly played card games. Rather than playing against other players, as you do in poker, you’re playing solely against the dealer. The game starts with each player receiving  two cards. One card faces up and the other faces down so you’re the only one that can see both cards. The goal is to get as close to a total of 21 as you can. Common terms you’ll hear when playing blackjack are hit, which will result in you receiving an additional card, and double, which doubles your bet.


Roulette involves a table with spots labeled with numbers 0 through 36 and 00. You can also bet for even or odd, red or black, low 18 or high 18, low, middle, or high 12, and first, second, or third columns. A wheel next to the table will be spun by the dealer and a ball rolled counter-clockwise on the wheel. All bets that correspond with where the ball lands win.


In addition to blackjack, poker is another very popular card game at casinos. Each player is issued five cards. Each hand is ranked depending on the cards they possess. The order of hands are high card, pair, two pair, three of a kind, straight, flush, full house, four of a kind, straight flush, and royal flush. The player that possesses the best hand at the table wins.

A casino features a large number of games in which you can play. Some of these games are simple luck while others involve strategy. Knowing the most popular games will help you decide what to play when you visit a Shawnee, OK casino.
