If you have ever been into a ‘bricks-and-mortar’ casino, you’ll know the seduction of the slot machines – rows and rows of flashing lights, jangling sound effects and music all calling you to come try your luck. But for those who like more of a challenge, and prefer the idea of playing to well thought-out strategy, casino table games offer much greater satisfaction.
A casino table game is any game that is played – you guessed it! - on a table, and operated by one or more dealers (or also called ‘bankers’). DuckyLuck.ag has a full slate of table games to choose from, including blackjack, roulette, craps, poker, baccarat, pai gow, and more. Table games have better odds than most slots and you are doing yourself a disservice if you don’t at least try a hand or two because they offer the best chance at winning. All it takes is a little bit of practice and you’ll soon be able to get the most out of your DuckyLuck Online Casino experience.

By far one of the most popular casino table games because it’s quick and easy to play at all skill levels, Blackjack also offers some of the best odds. Winning a hand of blackjack is as simple beating the dealer’s card total without going over 21. How it works: Players and the dealer each receive two cards. Depending on the cards you are dealt, you can either ‘stand’ (keep your cards and end your turn), ‘hit’ (take another card, or however many you need to get a winning total), ‘double’ (double your bet and take only one more card), ‘split’ (turn a pair into two separate hands), or ‘surrender’ (throw in your cards and forfeit half your bet).
With a bunch of variations on this classic casino table game, DuckyLuck’s Blackjack tables are always humming. Find the one you like best and start taking advantage of the best odds our online casino has to offer.
A roulette wheel consists of 38 segments with numbers 1 to 36, alternately colored red and back, plus a green 0 and 00. The croupier (or in our case, a machine) spins the wheel and then spins a ball in the opposite direction. Players must predict where the ball will land to win. You can bet on any number or combination of numbers, but if it lands on either of the two green segments, the house will always win. (This is called the ‘house edge’, a small profit that keeps the casino in business.)
There are two basic kinds of bets a player can place in roulette: ‘inside bets’ and ‘outside bets’. Inside bets are all located on a grid on the inner section of the table. So if you want to put a chip on a single number, that’s an inside bet. You can bet straight up, split your bet over two or more numbers by placing your chip on intersecting number lines, or multiple numbers in a section of the grid. Outside bets offer lower payouts because you have a better chance at winning. Here you bet on broader categories like red or black, odd or even numbers, or high or low numbers.
Another casino table game that beginners are often a bit intimidated to try is craps. This is a shame because it’s not just easy to understand, it’s pretty easy to win. Best of all, craps also offers you a chance to win alongside other players, creating a unique and fun atmosphere in both land and online casinos.
All you need to know before playing craps is that one of the players at the table rolls two dice. If the two dice total seven or eleven (called ‘a natural’), everyone who placed a ‘Pass Line’ bet – which means that you’ve backed the shooter – wins even money. If the shooter rolls a total of two, three or twelve, the house collects.
Should the shooter roll a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10, the croupier/machine marks your point. Once the point is established, what the shooter needs to do is roll the dice once more and hit the same number again. It doesn’t have to be the same combination, just the same sum. So, if you shoot the dice, hit an eight with two fours, you can still win if you – or the actual craps shooter – hit an eight with a five and a three.
When you’re not shooting, you can place bets on the ‘pass line’ or ‘don’t pass line’. The pass line bet means you bet the shooter will roll a natural or by winning the point. ‘Don’t pass’ is the opposite, betting that the shooter will lose. You can also place ‘come’ or ‘don’t come’ bets. A ‘come’ bet wins if a natural is rolled and loses if it isn’t. ‘Don’t come’ bets means you’re rooting for a 2 or 3.
Simple, right? You’re now ready to play craps for real money. Even online, craps is the most fast-paced and thrilling casino table game and DuckyLuck Online Casino always has a spot at our tables for you to join in fun and excitement, whether at home or on-the-go on our mobile platform.
You may remember baccarat from the old Bond 007 movies, but you don’t have to be a member of Her Majesty’s Secret Service to play this classic casino table game. Even though baccarat is sometimes considered the preserve of high rollers, this shouldn’t deter newbies from trying it because it’s a lot easier than the movies make it out to be.
Basically, players can make one of three decisions: back another player’s hand, the banker’s hand, or a tie. The winning hand is whichever one adds up closest to nine. In a standard baccarat hand, the banker and the player are dealt two cards each. Cards 2–9 are face value, the 10, jack, queen and king have a 0 value, and aces are worth 1. If a hand total is more than 10, the first digit of the hand’s total is discarded. For example, two sevens, which is a total of 14, makes a 4-point hand.
Here are some more rules to help make you a DuckyLuck baccarat whiz in no time at all: If either the player or banker is dealt a hand totaling 8 or 9, both the player and banker ‘stand’ (no more cards are dealt). If the player’s total is 5 or less, then the player will receive another card. Otherwise, the player will stand. If the player stands, then the banker must deal another card on their total of 5 or less.
Hot tip: The player’s hand will win 44.62 percent of the time. The banker’s hand will lose 45.85 percent of the time. Ties are a rarity, but they do happen. The probability for a tie in baccarat is 9.53 percent and the payoff for a tie is 8 to 1, but the house has a huge advantage on these bets.
In most baccarat table games, betting on the banker’s hand pays 95 percent of your wager. Backing the player’s hand means you could double what you bet. And that’s it! The only thing for you to do now is to try this classic casino table game for yourself at one of DuckyLuck’s online baccarat tables.
First created in 1994, three-card poker was invented to satisfy ‘the need for speed’! This winning combination of speed, luck, strategy, skill and simplicity has made three-card poker one of the most popular table games at DuckyLuck Online Casino.
Unlike most versions of poker, the player isn’t going head-to-head against other players. More like Blackjack, the objective is to beat the dealer. You start by making an ‘ante’ bet (betting before any cards are dealt). Then the dealer gives each player and themselves three cards. The dealer’s cards are face down and the player is only permitted to look at their own cards. Once the player has assessed their hand, they must either ‘fold’ (end the game and lose their bet) or ‘call’ – the dealer must now turn up their cards.
If the dealer’s hand doesn’t have at least a queen high or better, all players are paid 1-to-1 odds on their ante bets and they can take back their ‘Play’ bets. If the dealer does have at least a queen high, your hand will go head-to-head to determine the winner.
The hands from worst to best are: High card. The number or face value of the highest card you were dealt, which should be at least a king if you have any hope of coming out on top. Pair. Two of your cards are the same number or face value (e.g. two Jacks, two fives). Flush. All three cards are of the same suit. Straight. All three cards fall in sequential order (e.g. a 7, 8 and 9). Three of a kind, also known as ‘trips’ (e.g. three Queens, three nines) Straight flush. All three cards in sequential order but also of the same suit.
DuckyLuck’s three-card poker tables have all kinds of bonuses and rewards, so pull up a virtual seat today and experience the ultimate, fast-paced and thrilling casino table game version of a classic card game.
Originally a Chinese game that uses a set of 32 dominoes, the casino table game version of pai gow uses a standard deck of 52 cards plus one joker. Like other online casino table games, the objective of the game is to beat the dealer (or ‘banker’).
To beat the banker, players must make two poker hands with the seven cards that they are dealt: a five-card high hand and a two-card low hand. Your high hand must beat your low hand. So, if you’re dealt a flush and a pair, your flush would become your high hand and the pair would be your low hand.
Once your high and low hands are set, the banker reveals them along with their hands. There are three possible outcomes once the hands are revealed: The player wins both hands and wins their bet. The dealer wins both hands and the player loses their bet. The player wins one hand and the dealer wins the other. In this case, no money is exchanged. In Pai Gow, ties go to the dealer.
You’re almost ready to play this casino table game. The only thing we’d recommend before you try is that you brush up on your poker hand rankings. Once you never have to second-guess whether a full house beats a flush (it does) or if a flush beats a straight (again, it does), you’re ready to start winning at this exciting evolution of a classic Chinese table game.
