Gambling has steadily evolved along with history, slowly but surely becoming one of the most recognized and popular activities out there in Spain. From card games to online and mobile casinos, gambling is without a doubt one of the most important means of entertainment and income out there. Even though the digital era has brought an incredible amount of innovation and commodities to the world, classics never go out of style. This is also true for gambling. No matter if you are a modern or old-fashioned gambler or a newbie or veteran in the gambling business, there are some games that we just can’t forget. Today dear readers, let’s take a look at the most iconic games in gambling, both because of their popularity and their high payout rates.
Classics With Style
Spain is not a newcomer to the world of casinos. Having their version of the classic deck of cards, it’s no wonder that many popular card games have their origin in this European country. Not only do they have their own version of the classic card deck, but their creativity has brought many new and different gambling activities to life: some classic, some modern. Let’s take a look at the most played casino games in the country.
Classic Card Game: Blackjack
A beloved classic that has withstood the test of time, Blackjack or 21 as it is known in many parts of the world, is one of the most iconic and simple games on our list. A concise set of rules and a lonely opponent make this game quite interesting to try out both in the physical and digital worlds. The objective of the game is to add points in the form of values of each card to the total in our hand, getting as close as possible to 21 without going over. From the 2 to the 10, each card is worth the number of points shown on their face, while the Jack, Queen, and King are worth 10 each. Finally, the Ace is worth either 1 or 11 points depending on the player’s decision. Our only opponent, no matter the number of players on the table, is the dealer; the dealer’s playstyle is dictated by a simple set of rules that allow players a slight level of advantage when playing. The dealer always draws last and has to continue to draw until they hit 16 points or more, at which point they’ll stop. For dealers, the Ace is also worth between 1 and 11 points, yet it depends completely on the situation. If having eleven points would make the dealer go over, it’s worth only 1 point. Fast games and exciting wagers make this game a classic that won’t be forgotten any time soon.
The Hand Of Fate: Slot Machines
One of the most simple and addictive games out there, the classic slot machines date back to a couple of hundred years ago. The classic formula of pulling a handle and then letting Lady Luck’s whim take the wheel has made more than one gambler lose a fortune in this simple mechanized friend. The online version may seem a bit far-fetched, and some may think that it is easy to get cheated on online slot machines, yet nothing further from the truth. With sophisticated software handling the goods to make results just as random as real life, Lady Luck’s hand reaches out even in the digital world.
Spin The Ball: Roulette
Arguably one of the games that offer many different ways of gambling and that needs more than a bit of luck, the classic ball spin is simple yet elegant and exciting. One of the favorite games for experienced gamblers, this simple spin can mean the difference between a fortune and bankruptcy. Definitely not for rookies in the gambling world, since the high payout rates can entice players to bite way more than they can chew, and lose everything in just a few spins. Still, if you can keep a cool head, the classic roulette will bring you more than just a few smiles.
The List Goes On
