A casino is a facility
that accommodates certain types of gambling activities. Casinos
are often placed near or combined with hotels, restaurants,
retail shopping, cruise ships and other vacation attractions.
Online Casinos . Some casinos are known for hosting live entertainment
events, such as concerts and sporting events, especially boxing.
Most people will
never have the time or money to travel to casino destinations
like Las Vegas in the States or Monte Carlo in Europe. They
can however access all their favourite casino games at a casino
online right on their PC at home or at work.
Games available in most casinos are commonly called casino games.
In a casino game, the players gamble casino chips on various
possible random outcomes or combinations of outcomes. Casino
games are available in online casinos, where permitted by law.
Casino games can also be played outside of casinos for entertainment
purposes, some on machines that simulate gambling.
In most jurisdictions,
gambling is limited to persons over the age of majority (21
years of age in most of the United States and 18 to 20 in most
other countries where casinos are permitted). Customers may
gamble by playing slot machines or other games of chance (e.g.,
craps, roulette, baccarat, slot machines) and some skill (eg.,
blackjack, poker) [for more see casino games]. Game rules usually
have mathematically-determined odds that ensure the house retains
an advantage over the players. This advantage is called the
edge. Payout is the percentage given to players. In games such
as poker, the house takes a commission (a "rake")
on bets players make against each other. Our money refers to
the situation where a winning player is placing bets with money
that has been won from the casino.
There are three
general categories of casino games: table games, electronic
gaming machines, and random number ticket games such as Keno
and simulated racing. Gaming machines, such as slot machines
and pachinko, are usually played by one player at a time and
do not require the involvement of casino employees to play.
Random number games are based upon the selection of random numbers,
either from a computerized random number generator or from other
gaming equipment. Random number games may be played at a table,
such as Roulette, or through the purchase of paper tickets or
cards, such as Keno or Bingo.
