How to Win Live Online Blackjack

The goal of live Blackjack is to have a hand value that is closer to 21 than that of the dealer. This can be achieved either from the initial 2-card hand or with multiple cards given on each Hit. Alternatively, if the dealer’s hand goes beyond the value of 21, then the hand busts and you win regardless of your hand value. The strongest hand in the game is the Blackjack which is achieved for having an Ace and a face card (K,Q,J) in your initial 2-card hand.

Live casino Blackjack adds exciting variations to the formula including side bets that can win for identical valued pairs or for combining the player and dealer hand together to create 5-card Poker combinations. Other popular live Blackjack games also add special win multipliers that apply to wins of certain values including mega boosters for achieving a Blackjack.

How to Win Live Online Roulette

The goal of live Roulette is to successfully predict the results of the wheel that is spun at the beginning of the round. The more accurate your prediction is, the higher your potential payout. The safest bets in live Roulette are the bets that have a near 50/50 chance of winning including Red/Black, Odds/Evens, and High/Low.

If you are looking to maximise your potential winnings, the highest payout is for accurately predicting the single number space that the wheel lands on. The standard payout for these wins is 35:1. Some of the Roulette variations available from Evolution also contain special modifiers to increase your winning chances even more including win multipliers and exclusive bets that can award additional winnings.

How to Win Live Online Poker

The goal of live online Poker is to have a hand with a stronger combination of cards than the dealer. Poker typically either have 3-card or 5-card hands depending on the version being played. The strongest hand in Poker is the Royal Flush which consists of 5 cards of the same suit in a sequence 10,J,Q,K,A. In 3-card Poker, the strongest card is the Mini Royal which consists of 3 cards of the same suit in a sequence A,K,Q. Both versions award the highest standard payout of 100:1.

Live casino Poker games also add various side bets that can be won by combining the hand of the player and dealer together as well as raising the potential maximum payout to 1000:1. Combine the hands together and win on any hand that is a 3-of-a-kind or better or put your faith in either hand as the Pair Plus side bets pays for any hand with a perfect pair or higher on either the player or dealer hand. The Pair Plus side bet can be won regardless of if the player has folded or not.
