Top Blackjack Games
Top Roulette Games
Table games include some of the most popular online casino games, such as blackjack, poker and roulette. The most popular table games have a large number of variations of the games that you can play, and we even offer live versions of the games, hosted by live dealers or croupiers.
Table games are favorites among players, because they’re typically sociable and help everyone to engage with the dealer and the other players around the table. Online table games also have a chat feature, so that the social aspect of the game is carried over to the online format.
If you are still a little unsure about what a table game is, or how they’re different from other online casino games, then take a look at some of the frequently asked questions below.
What are table games?
A table game can be described as any game in a casino that takes place on a table, such as blackjack and roulette. These tables are typically covered in felt and have betting layouts on them where players can place their cards or chips when they play or make bets. While this definition covers most table games found in casinos, you may find a few others online that are listed as table games but aren’t actually played on a table.
Table games in casinos also have either a dealer or croupier who hosts the game, like the dealer in a poker game. Online casinos have taken table games a step further by creating live table games which have a dealer hosting your game over a live video stream while you play. This brings the authentic experience to online players in a way that makes them feel like they’re really at a casino.
What are the most popular table games, and what options do I have?
The most popular table game by far is online blackjack. After blackjack, poker games are the next most popular casino table games. Within the poker world, the most popular version of poker is Texas hold’em, but other variants such as stud poker, five card draw, and Omaha are all close contenders.
Roulette is another of the most popular online table games, and you won’t find a much simpler game than this. The roulette wheel is an iconic image synonymous with casinos and luck, and this online game is made even better when experienced as a live table game.
Craps is next on the list of the most popular table games — and for good reason: in most casino movies (just like in real life), the craps table is surrounded by players laughing and cheering as the shooter throws the dice.
These are only a few of the most popular table games that you can find at BetMGM. We feature a wide array of different online casino games for you to choose from, as well as live table games for you to totally immerse yourself in, including online baccarat, poker, blackjack, roulette, and more.
What is the house edge and what does it mean?
Good question! House edge statistics are important to know because they illustrate your chance of winning at any table game. The house edge is really a mathematical representation of the advantage that the casino operator has over the player in any given game, typically expressed as a percentage.
For example, a table game with a house edge of 1% means you should expect to lose $1 of every $100 you stake. The figures won’t be exactly the same for every game, or even every player, but it represents an average taken from millions of games. Remember that in games like poker there won’t be a house edge because you are playing against the other players, not the house.
Which table games have the best odds?
The great news about table games is that they have the best odds in any casino compared to other games. The table game with the best odds is blackjack – a simple card game with an element of skill to it. Odds of a good player winning at blackjack online are about 49%, with the dealer relying on about as much luck as the player to get a win.
Online roulette boasts just below 50% odds, with several ways for the payers to bet which can change the odds of winning per spin. A standard roulette wheel has 38 numbers on it, ranging from 1-36 in red or black, and 0 and 00 in green. The simplest bet in roulette is whether the ball will fall on a red or black space in the wheel – which has odds of almost 50% (“almost” because of the two green tiles).
The odds aren’t always clear for certain table games, such as poker. While luck most certainly plays a role in poker with regard to the cards you’re dealt, you are in control of how you play those cards, as well as how you play against your opponents. Because you could be playing against complete novices, expert sharks, or anyone in between, the odds of you winning at poker vary greatly from hand to hand, and from game to game.
Can I play any time and on any day of the week?
Absolutely! All our casino games are available to you at any time on any day, so when the mood strikes you, there are hundreds of online slots and games for you to play. It’s important to keep in mind that some events or tournaments will take place at specific times and dates.

Can I play table games using my mobile device?
Yes, you can! You can play a large number of our games on mobile devices, or through our app.
Keep in mind that for certain games, such as those with live dealers, the size of the screen on your mobile device might not be suitable to get the best experience of the game.
Can I play more than one table game at a time?
You can play at more than one table at a time, but remember that you don’t want to slow down play for anyone else at the table. You should be able to focus on each table and give your full attention to your fellow players.
If you are playing a live table game, it is recommended to only play at one table at a time to save on bandwidth, prevent the game from slowing down for other players, and to ensure you have the best possible streaming quality for the game.
