Fun and Easy Casino Games to Play

Whether you’re hosting a casino-themed party in your home or going to a casino, you might be curious about the most fun and straightforward games to play. A small amount of research goes a long way, so here are some of the best games for a fun casino evening with friends.


After you’ve purchased all the Las Vegas themed party supplies you need, there can be value in exploring the most highly-regarded casino table games. Blackjack is undoubtedly at the top of the list.

Also known as ’21,’ this popular card game has a standard set of rules requiring a player to beat the dealer without their card total exceeding 21. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned player, this game is straightforward to play.

All hands begin with players being dealt two cards facing up while the dealer has one facing up and one facing down. If your first two cards equal 21, you’re paid 3-to-2 on your bet. If your hand is under 21, you can request another card or take no cards and request the dealer reveal their hand.


Poker is an ideal game if you prefer to play card games against other players rather than the house. While more complex than blackjack, most people won’t take long to familiarize themselves with the rules. The aim of the game is to show the best hand out of all players at the end. These are the best hands in order from the most valuable to the least valuable:

  1. Royal flush – A same suit straight from 10 to ace
  2. Straight flush – A straight of five cards of the same suit
  3. Four of a kind – Four cards of one rank
  4. Full house – Three cards of the same rank with two cards of the same rank
  5. Flush – Cards of the same suit
  6. Straight – Five consecutive cards of different suits
  7. Three of a kind – Three cards of the same rank
  8. Two pair – Two cards of one rank and two cards of another rank
  9. Pair high card – Highest pair of cards

Caribbean Stud

Caribbean Stud is a poker game you can play in person or online, requiring a fair amount of strategy. The dealer deals five cards to each player and themselves and turns one card face up while all player cards remain face down.

Players can look at their cards after placing an ‘Ante’ bet, but can’t share information about them. Once they look at their cards, they can choose to raise their bet or fold. The dealer needs to have a minimum of Ace-King to qualify. If you raise your bet, and the dealer has anything less than that, you win on your Ante bet.

Ultimate Texas Hold’em

Ultimate Texas Hold’em is one of the most popular poker games in the world. Players are pitted against the house and must make Ante and blind bets before the game begins.

The rules for Ultimate Texas Hold’em can be complex, and it might take some time for new players to learn the ropes. However, there’s potential to win big money when played on a professional level.

There are dozens of fun and immersive casino games to choose from, but some undoubtedly stand out more than others. Whether you’re hosting a casino event or looking for fun games to play at your local casino, these card games above might stand out from the crowd.
