You’re interested in playing casino games online, but you’re worried about all the strange new words you’ve never heard before. You’re in the right place! Check out the 20 most commonly used casino words and soon you’ll be able to enjoy playing casino knowing exactly what’s going on.
The whole experience of playing casino games should be all about having fun. Let’s get started!
This is the amount of money you have to play with at the casino. At 10CRIC Casino you’ll find your bankroll, or account total, at the top right of your screen.
How much money you choose to place on the outcome of a hand at a card game or a spin of a slot game is called the bet or stake. This can be one single amount, like betting on one number in roulette, or it can be the total amount of many smaller bets, like betting on multiple numbers in roulette.
Quite often you’ll get the chance to play with more than just your own money. A bonus is extra funds offered by the casino, usually when you add your own funds to your account. You can play with the bonus amount just like you would with your own money, but there are rules before you can withdraw those funds, and anything you win with them, to your bank account.
Cash out /Withdraw
When you want to send the money, you’ve won at the casino to your bank account, this is called cashing out. You can cash out, or withdraw, your winnings at any point, just make sure you have met any bonus wagering requirements first.
Found in all casinos, these are the small, plastic, coin-shaped tokens that represent money. Chips come in different colours according to their different values. These chips are used to place bets at the casino by placing them on the table or putting them in the slot games.
This is the person who deals the cards, spins the roulette wheel or controls the game in some way. The dealer cannot be a player.
When you add money from your bank account, credit card or other payment method to your casino account to play with, this is called making a deposit, or depositing.
When you play a card game such as Blackjack, Teen Patti or Baccarat, you are dealt a certain number of cards to play with. Those cards are referred to as your hand. Make sure your hand is better than everyone else’s and you win!
Slots often have a maximum amount that they will pay out in one go. This is called a jackpot. A typical jackpot is usually a set amount that can be won for doing something specific during slot gameplay, like getting 5 of a certain symbol in a row. There are also progressive jackpots, where the total amount that can be won increases as people continue to play the game. Jackpot games offer the chance to win a lot of money at once and are very attractive for casino players!
Playing casino games online usually involves lots of computer animation of the kind of games you’d normally find in a real casino. Live Casino is different in that the games are played in real time, with real life dealers on real casino tables. Everything is as you would find it in a real-life casino, except you aren’t there, you’re enjoying it all on your mobile phone, tablet or computer!
Your chances of winning are called the odds. Using roulette as an example, your chances of winning a bet on the number three are 1 in 37 (since there are 37 numbers on the wheel, including 0, and you’re betting on one of them). Note that the odds of winning and the payout you get for winning are not always the same.
An online casino is a virtual version of a real casino. It is an animated representation of a casino that players can join, log in to and play at, from their mobile phone, tablet or computer.
This is what you get if you win. Using roulette as an example, if you place a bet on the number three, and number three wins, your payout will be 35 to 1 (35/1). For every chip you placed on that winning number, you will get 35 chips back as your winnings. You will also get your original stake back.
In Blackjack, if your hand and the dealer’s hand turn out to be the same, this is called a push. It’s another word for a tie and it means no-one wins, but no-one loses either. In this case, you get your stake back.
A type of bonus that casinos offer their players, a reload bonus is an extra amount of funds to play with. It is usually claimed by making a deposit, often using a bonus code. As with all bonuses, make sure you check the wagering requirements before withdrawing.
This is the number of times the bonus (often bonus and deposit) amount must be played before that bonus and any winnings from it can be withdrawn as cash. For example, if you deposit ₹100 and get a ₹100 bonus, and the rollover is 5x, that means you must play ₹200 x 5 = ₹1,000 before you can withdraw the bonus or any winnings. Rollovers form part of the wagering requirements of bonuses. You can find details of bonus rollovers in the bonus terms and conditions.
This is an optional bet you can make if it is offered. Using Blackjack as an example, the usual bet is to win the hand against the dealer. But there are also side bets, including 21+3, Perfect Pairs and Insurance. These side bets offer extra chances to win and add more excitement to the game as a result.
Games involving matching reels of symbols are called slots or slot games. Online casino slots are just like the slot machines you may have seen at real life casinos, but they are animated instead.
There are rules when it comes to bonuses at online casinos. Before you can withdraw your bonus or any winnings from it as cash, you will often have to play a certain amount of money first, on certain games, at a certain stake, before a certain date, for example. Specific wagering requirements can be found in the terms and conditions of the bonus.
This is an extra amount of funds that casinos offer new members for making their first deposit. A welcome bonus can also include other extras, like free spins, to encourage new members to explore certain games. Welcome bonuses offer players the chance to explore more of the casino’s games, increasing their chances of finding something they love.
