Choosing a Table Game Based on Your Personality

March 6, 2015


Online pokies are the most represented type of game out there right now, but plenty of table games fans are still playing every single day. Something that's interesting about table games is that there are a lot of different types of games with varying degrees of chance, strategy and rules. This means that you'll have a much different set of experiences waiting on you than compared to pokies. This also allows you to choose a table game based on your own personality instead of being pushed into a "one size fits all" mold of the online pokies experience.

So let's start off by looking at a few characteristics that can relate to aspects of a table game. Do you prefer chance or strategy? Do you like to have room to come up with your own approach to the game, or do you prefer to just press a button and see if you win? Do you like card games or prefer another approach? These are the questions you need to ask yourself if you're going to use this method for figuring out which table games you'll prefer. It's all about finding the right fit for you as an individual.

Let's take European roulette as an example. This is a game that is all about chance, but it still allows you to form any kind of strategy you want with a ton of options and permutations because you don't ever have to worry about any of your choices giving you a worse payout rate. Overall, this is all about giving players options with a relatively low house advantage without having to learn anything on a skill level. This is great for players who don't have much interest in spending hours and hours learning strategies like those in games like blackjack and video poker.

And this brings us to another set of games that have heavily strategic gameplay: casino poker, blackjack and video poker. These games are a little different from each other, but they all have one thing in common: If you're going to play these games well, you'd better be prepared to put in the work to be able to do so. That's perfect for players who are looking for a more in-depth experience where they have to be pushed to play well instead of what they see as mindlessly pushing a button and finding out if they won.
