Blackjack: For many people, blackjack is synonymous with casino gambling. This classic card game - in which you're supposed get as close to 21 as possible - has attracted gamblers for centuries. If you want your decisions to matter, blackjack is your game. When you play it right, you get the house edge down to below one percent.

Slots: Slots always has the biggest prize pools both in online and offline casinos. The key to the million-dollar payouts, which are quite common on the Net, is the progressive jackpots. Each player who partakes in any of these games contributes to a constantly growing prize pool; and if you aim for the millions, slots should be your choice.

Video Poker: Video Poker is the only casino game that sometimes gives the players an advantage. Yes, it's true. To get there, however, you have to choose the right game and employ the perfect strategy. But it's possible. And if you combine this with the possibility of progressive-jackpot payouts, Video Poker could definitely be worth a shot.

Craps: In live casinos, craps tables are always the loudest. People shout out numbers, rooting for the shooter to throw their winning dice combination. Thanks to the new technology, this feeling has been transferred to the online-craps games. Before you play it, however, just make sure you learn what bets you should make and which to avoid.

Roulette: Roulette is a straightforward game. You place your bet - on red, a number, a column or whatever you like - and then hope that lady luck stops the ball in your selected socket. When choosing between games, however, you should always look for tables with European rules. This will improve your odds dramatically.

Caribbean Stud: If poker mated with blackjack, their offspring would be Caribbean stud. This casino game is based on traditional poker and you're supposed to get a five-card hand as strong as possible. But you play against a dealer and not other players. Your goal is therefore to fold when the dealer is strong and raise when he's weak.

Pai Gow: Pai Gow is an extremely popular variation of poker. In the game, you receive seven cards with which you're supposed to make two poker hands, one containing two cards and one containing five. The dealer then does the same, and if you manage to beat him both ways, you scoop the pot.

Baccarat: Baccarat is associated with classy casino establishments with James Bond look-alikes around the tables. It has an aura of class. I don't want to drag the game in the dirt but nowadays you're able to play the game whatever clothes you wear. Just log on to an online casino and play this fun game, previously only available to the European nobility.

Keno: The rules are simple: Pick your numbers, sit back, and wait for the ping-pong balls to be drawn. This is not rocket science but at the same time that's the charm of keno. Winning is obviously just about being lucky. But maybe you feel lucky?
