All online gaming software providers classify their games into groups. This helps players locate the game they want to play easily. It also gives them a broad idea of what the game will entail. Table Games is a commonly used class of games. It includes card based games and other games that are usually played on tables at land based casinos. Microgaming offers over 400 games at each of its online casinos. Therefore it also offers sub classifications to its games. This article will take the reader through the Microgaming Table Games and help them understand how these games are classified.
At the time of writing, Microgaming offers 62 Table Games at Jackpot City online casino. 40 of those games are blackjack variants. Hence Microgaming has two broad sub groups in Table Games – Blackjack and More Tables. Blackjack players can head to the former sub group and need not sift through other games to find their favorite blackjack variant.
The blackjack online casino games are further subdivided into Single Hand and Multi Hand games. Multi Hand games allow players to play up to five hands simultaneously and are fast becoming the more popular format. Microgaming offers 18 Single Hand blackjack games and 22 Multi Hand blackjack games. The Single Hand games consist of the variants played at various popular land based casino locations. These include Europe, Atlantic City, Vegas Strip and Vegas Downtown. The games are offered in the original released formats and in the Gold Series formats. The Gold Series games have a classier look and more comprehensive features. Microgaming also offers unique variants of blackjack that are not offered in land casinos. These include games like Double Exposure, Bonus Blackjack and Hi Lo 13. The Multi Hand games are essentially the same games as the Single Hand ones but in Multi Hand formats. Microgaming also offers 4 High Limit blackjack games. These are not additional games, but are the high limit variants from the Single Hand and Multi Hand classifications listed separately. The purpose is to enable the high limit players to access their games more conveniently.
The 22 More Tables group has 6 Roulette games and 16 Other games. Roulette has a separate sub grouping because of its popularity. The basic format offers all three popular variants – European, French and American. European Roulette and French Roulette are offered in the Gold Series format as well. The sixth roulette game is Roulette Royale, which offers a progressive jackpot.The Other games section in the More Tables is a real mixed bag. There are two dice based games. One is craps, which is popular in all land casinos in Europe and America. The other is a similar game call sic bo, which is of Chinese origin. The other popular land casino games included in this section is baccarat, which has been immortalized in James Bond movies. Microgaming offers a high limit variant of baccarat as well. The remaining games are based on poker. However in these games players do not compete against each other but against a payout table or the dealer’s hand. Microgaming has given different unique names to two of the more popular of these games. The game known as Caribbean Stud Poker in other online casinos is known as Cyberstud Poker in Microgaming casinos. Similarly Let It Ride is known as Poker Ride. Variations of 3 Card Poker are also available.
