When it comes to Live Dealer Roulette, most NJ online casinos use an American Roulette wheel (zero and double zero) and rules. There are variations within American Roulette, such as multiview and auto-roulette. Please read our How To Play Roulette guide to learn all the details on how to play the game of roulette.
The house edge in American Roulette is higher than European Roulette. The house edge for American Roulette is 5.26% and is 2.7% for European Roulette.
As noted above, some NJ online casinos have special games such as Lightning Roulette.
Lightning Roulette is played on a European Roulette wheel, which means numbers 1-36 (red and black) and one zero (green.) The rules are the same as a standard roulette game, but involve Lucky Numbers for bigger payouts.
After bets have been placed on the wheel, a random number generator creates Lucky Numbers. Each spin features 1 to 5 Lucky numbers with a payout between 50x, up to 500x on your wager. This is strictly for Straight-up Bets. All other bets will receive the normal payout.
Up to five numbers can be chosen as Lucky Numbers before each spin. The multipliers on each Lucky Number can be 50x, 100x, 200x, 300x, 400x or 500x.
Live Dealer Baccarat at NJ online casinos feature the Dragon Bonus Baccarat games you find at land-based casinos, unless noted otherwise. Most times, a five percent commission rule is applied to all banker bets. Players can also make a Dragon Bonus side bet, which would pay on natural and non-natural wins by four points or greater. Read our How To Play Baccarat guide for more information.
The house edge for a Live Dealer Baccarat Banker bet is 1.06 percent. A Player Bet is 1.24 percent. A tie bet has a house edge of near 15 percent. The return-to-player percentage is 98.94% with optimal Baccarat strategy. Please read our How To Play Baccarat guide for more information.
Live Dealer Casino Hold'em and Live Dealer Ultimate Texas Hold'em are similar in nature, but there are differences with the betting sequence and payouts. The object of the game is simple. Players must beat the dealer. You are not responsible for beating the other players. Read our Casino Hold'em guide to learn more.
Players must place an Ante bet before the cards are dealt. A player may also make side bets, such as Pair Plus. Once the bets are set, the player is dealt two cards. After three community cards are dealt, a player must either fold and surrender their ante, or call, which means putting out another bet that matches your Ante wager. So if you initially invested $10, you must wager another $10. To beat the dealer, you must make a better five-card hand than the dealer.
The Casino Hold'em house edge is a touch over two percent.
A player makes two-match bets, both for the Ante and Blind. After receiving two cards, the player can make a Play Bet, which can be three or four times the ante amount. If the player wishes not to do this, the player can check. Once three community cards are dealt, a player can decide to check or Play Bet for two times the Ante. After this round concludes, two more community cards are dealt. A player can Play Bet for one times the Ante, or fold their initial Ante and Blind bets. To beat the dealer, you must make a better five-card hand than the dealer.
The Ultimate Texas Hold'em house edge is 2.2 percent.
Live Dealer Three Card Poker is the same as if you played it in-person at a casino. Your three cards must make a better hand than the dealer's three cards. If you believe your hand is strong enough, you can match your Play Bet or surrender your Ante. A player can also make side bets, such as going for the Pair Plus bonus. Please read our How To Play Three Card Poker guide to learn more.
The house edge in Three Card Poker is 3.4%.
