Casino games are enjoyed by millions of people all over the world and have been for many years. The emergence of the first online casinos in the late nineties enabled players to enjoy their favourite casino games from the comfort of their own home. However, the availability of mobile phones and publicly accessible wireless networks has meant that players have been able to enjoy their favourite Betfair casino table game at any time whilst being anywhere in the world.
The explosion of online casinos has resulted in the gambling industry ballooning in size over the past decade and generating billions of pounds every year. It is believed that ‘remote betting’, such as online casino games, online poker and online bingo, make up more than a third of the industry’s value.
With casino games such as blackjack, roulette and craps available, gamblers are able to play their favourite games wherever they want, whether that be in casinos or on online mobile casino apps.
The most popular casino game in the world at this moment in time is blackjack, which is also called “21”. The basic rules of the card game means that it attracts both new and experienced casino players. As the name “21” implies, the objective of the game is to get your card total as close to 21 as possible without going over, and having a higher total as the dealer. If you manage to ‘beat’ the dealer by beating his total or getting 21 then you win, if not you lose the amount of money that you bet.
It’s believed that blackjack generates the most money from casinos at this moment in time, but this could change in the near future.
