Most gambling fans have tried their hand at popular games like blackjack, craps, and roulette but there are also plenty of other unique and interesting casino games that you might give a whirl for a change of pace at both online casinos as well as at brick-and-mortar casinos.

Below we'll look at a few games that you may not have yet given a spin, including some that actually have quite good odds for players and are definitely worth checking out.

 

  • Pai Gow: Pai Gow is based on poker and uses the same basic hand rankings, with players dealt seven cards and competing against the dealer, who also gets seven cards. the goal is to make two different poker hands, one with five cards and the other with two cards. If both hands of the player beat the dealer, then the player wins whatever they initially bet before the cards were dealt. If both hands lose, the house wins and the player loses their bet. If one wins and one loses, it's a push and no mmoney changes hand.

Pushes are very common at Pai Gow, which makes it popular with some players who are looking to get the most enjoyment out of their gambling dollars -- and lots of free drinks from the cocktail waitresses! You can play pai gow online as well as at many casinos in Vegas and other larger gambling destinations.

  • Sic Bo: Sic bo is a dice game that's much more popular in Asian casinos in Macau and Singapore but can also be found in larger Vegas casinos as well as online. Similar to craps but with three dice rolled instead of two, you'll be betting on different combinations that are rolled such as "Big" (the total of the three dice between 11-17), "Small" (a total between 4 and 10) and odd or even as well as other specific totals.
  • War: If you played the card game War as a kid, yes, indeed, you can actually now gamble on it at casinos in Las Vegas and around the world. Just place your bet and you'll battle it out with the delaer to see who is dealt the higher card; top the dealer and you win your bet.
  • Chuck-a-luck: You'll apparently have to travel all the way to Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut to play this one, but chuck-a-luck is a dice game played with three dice tumbled in a cage. Bettors place wagers on how the dice will land, plunking down bets on numbered squares and winning according to how many times that number is rolled when the dice land.
  • Money Wheel/Big Wheel: If you like to keep your gambling simple, money wheel might be the game for you, as you simply bet on what portion of a big spinning wheel you think the pointer at the top of the wheel will land on after the spin is done.
