Poker

Poker is my favorite form of gambling, and is one of the few gambling games that gives you a real chance to win. Popular poker games include Texas holdem, Omaha, and 7 card stud. Before you get started playing a particular type of poker, you need to learn the basic rules of the game.

Keno

Keno is another easy casino game to play, but it isn’t as popular as many games. It’s the closest thing to the lottery in most casino. You pick a set of number out of 80 total numbers, and then a set of numbers are drawn. If your numbers match the numbers that are drawn you win. Some keno games have a top prize of $10,000 or more for a $1 wager. Keno usually has the highest house edge in the casino, so it’s best to avoid it unless you want the chance to win a big prize for a small wager.
