Beginner’s Luck: Best Casino Games for Newbies

If you’re new to Cafe Casino table games, you might be wondering where to start. Well, the good news is that many games are great for beginners – they’re straightforward and easy to learn in practice mode with no real money at stake! You can practice as much as you like for free and get a good feel for the game before you wager a single dollar.

Our games also feature helpful instructions and rules that are only a click away, so you can review everything when you need a quick refresher on how a game works. If you’ve tried to learn blackjack strategy before, just understand that these games are not complicated like that. 

Online Craps Online Craps 

Craps may look like one of the more intimidating table games, but it’s really a simple game at its core. After a “point number” is established with a preliminary roll of the dice, the basic idea is that you’re going to bet on whether the dice will hit 7 again before that number comes up. If the number comes up again, the “pass” bet wins. If the 7 comes up first, the “don’t pass” bet wins. 

Everything else is distraction. That straightforward pass/don’t pass betting setup is the heart of craps. Give it a try!

Online BaccaratOnline Baccarat

Blackjack variations are way more complicated than Baccarat. Just like craps, this one is super simple. You’re betting on whether the player or the banker will have a score closer to 9. You can also bet on a draw, but that’s a longshot. Things get more complicated if you really want to learn how the scores get tallied up and how the dealing works, but it’s essentially a game of pick ‘em.

What could be simpler than that?

One little tip: cards are added to find a score for a hand, but if the total is ten or more, the first digit is dropped. A score of 10 is 0, a score of 13 is 3, and a score of 18 is 8. That’s it!

American RouletteAmerican Roulette

Of all the table games, American Roulette offers bets that are as simple as any. You can bet on red or black, odd or even, and other wagers that are close to 50/50. There’s not a ton of complication to it like you might find with blackjack strategy. A ball is placed on the wheel as it spins, and then the ball falls into one of 38 chambers or “stops.” These are numbered 1-36. For American Roulette, 0 and 00 appear as well.

The best way to figure out how the bets work is to simply play practice mode and grab some chips. Then, hover over a section of the roulette betting field. You’ll see you can bet on thirds of the table, 4-way groups of numbers, and other combinations. Not much to think about here – American Roulette is a fine game for a casino beginner to get started with.

Bingo

If grandma can play it, so can you!

Bingo is found in our specialty games section, and there’s actually a ton of variety here. Our bingo games are based on a number of different themes, like tribal life, fishing, soccer, and more. Unlike in person bingo, you don’t have to mark cards – the system takes care of it automatically for you. You can also play a bunch of cards at once if you want a better chance of winning.

Skip the blackjack variations if you’re just getting started. Play a little bingo to warm up and get a feel for things.

As you might already know, when you play bingo you’ll get a card with a grid of numbers. Any time a number is pulled at random from the group, any matches to your card will get filled in. A bingo happens when you make a defined winning line or pattern of marked numbers.

Don’t want to lose? You can buy extra balls to lock in big wins if you’re close at the end of the round – a very beginner-friendly feature!

Popular Slots Games

Slots games are based pretty much on luck. Just pick your bet amount, spin the reels, and hope they line up. That’s the way to play slots! Some have bonus rounds, wilds, and other interesting features, but the basic idea with slots games is matching up symbols to get payouts.

777 Deluxe777 Deluxe

777 Deluxe is perfect if you’re new to slots. There’s nothing to really throw you off like some of the fancier slot games. Instead, you just need to match up those bells, lucky 7s, and BARs on a winning payline, and you’re good to go. This one is also pretty exciting because the bonus rounds give you a shot at a progressive jackpot than can be quite huge. 

A Night with CleoA Night with Cleo

This one is a tad risqué, but it remains one of the most popular slots at our site. In addition to the fun night on the Nile theme, you get a shot at a very simple bonus round for beginners to play. 

After a win, Cleo may offer you a chance to double your win by picking the right flower in her hands. If you pick the right one, she drops an article of clothing and you double your win. You can then try again, if you’re feeling lucky. And if you managed to go on a hot streak, things can really heat up on the banks of that ancient river…

Reels & WheelsReels & Wheels

Reels and Wheels is a great slots game for beginners, and like 777 Deluxe, it also gives you a shot at a progressive jackpot than can be absolutely huge when it has had time to build up. Get into the bonus round and hope that you land on the jackpot spot, which opens up the jackpot wheel. Get lucky again and you’ll land the ultimate prize – the whole progressive jackpot.

At the time of this writing, it’s at $34,000. That would be a nice way for a beginner to get started, right?
