When we’re hot, you’re hot

Everyone is always looking for hot tips. Whether it’s the stock market, a special bar, inside information about a unique opportunity and, of course, gambling. Sometime these tips pay off handsomely. At Ignition Casino, our tips about our table games are smoking hot. Here’s a preview of the hottest online games we’ve got for you right now.

Blackjack has the best odds

Whether you’re in a bricks and mortar casino or here at Ignition, blackjack is an easy game to play and win. With only a 0.5% house edge, it offers you the best odds. Blackjack is you against the dealer in a race to 21 without going over, when you or the dealer lose automatically.
At Ignition, we offer triple the action with a multi-hand blackjack. Play one, two, or three hands against the dealer. Double, Hit, Stand, Surrender and Insurance are all available options in our six-deck version that forces the dealer to hit on soft 17. Perfect scores of 21 in the initial two-hand deal are rewarded with 3 to 2 payouts and other wins pay even-money.

Before starting the round, you can customize the decks by choosing the style and color you prefer. Then start a round by wagering as little as $1 and up to $500 using the colored casino chips found at the bottom of the screen. You can play one, two or three hands per round with this version of 21.

After placing your bets, hit the “Deal” button to start the action. For each hand, you receive two cards face up on the table. The dealer, meanwhile, receives two cards – one is face up and one is concealed. Displayed on the screen is the total value of each of your hands, which you can increase by Doubling or Hitting. When you’re ready to face off with the Dealer, tap “Stand.” If you don’t like your chances from the get-go, you can always forfeit via the Surrender button and start a new round.

Think you’ve got what it takes to beat the dealer and dominate the blackjack felt? If you’re a veteran playing online blackjack for real money, use Real Play mode. If you’re a beginner simply looking to develop your skills, use Practice Play mode.

Tri Card Poker goes quick and pays big

What makes Tri Card Poker a hot table game is that it’s fun and easy to learn. It’s like two casino games in one. The goal is to make the best poker hand with only three cards. Not only can you win against the dealer, you can also win based on how good your cards are.
The odds are more than 95% in your favor, which is not quite blackjack level great, but still pretty good. Put down an ante bet of $1, $5, $25, $100 or $500 and click deal to start the action. You’ll get three cards face-up, and the dealer gets three cards face-down. If you think you’ve got what it takes to take down the dealer, raise the stakes with a second bet. If not, fold and start a new round. The dealer needs a queen or higher to qualify, and you need a straight or better to earn an ante bonus.

Tri-Card Poker was created in the mid 1990s as a version of poker that could be played quickly like other table games. Check it out for yourself at Ignition Casino!

Double Deck Blackjack is twice the fun and quite profitable

Blackjack players who are serious about their game learn from the beginning that fewer decks are better for players. The frequency of scoring a two-card 21 is higher when you play with fewer decks. If all else is equal, a two-deck game has a lower house edge than a six-deck game, but unequal rules can make six decks the better game. You should experience both versions for yourself.

Double Deck Blackjack is your best bet for a profitable run. But first you’ll have to beat the dealer, who must stand on soft 17. You get more options to help build a strong hand. Double any two cards, split one hand per round, and take insurance when the dealer’s up-card is an ace – these options are all available in addition to hit and stand. You also get a 3:2 payout for landing a perfect hand of 21.
To start the round, both you and the dealer receive two cards each. You always get to see the dealer’s up-card, which makes this a game of incomplete information. Based on the score of your two-card hand and the sealer’s up-card, you decide if you want to add more cards to your hand or keep it as is.

Decisions, decisions, decisions… better start with a few practice rounds before you put your money on the table.

Roll the Dice is fast, fun and pays off bigtime

From the ancient Chinese dice game known as Hoo Hey How and Fish-Prawn-Crab, we present Roll the Dice. Apparently, even experienced casino players have no idea how this game is played. Yet, it’s one of the simplest online casino games ever.
Here at Ignition, the game screen consists of seven betting squares that each contain an icon: a fish, prawn, crab, coin, rooster, calabash and a triple (three dice). You simply bet on the squares you like and roll the dice. If any of your selections show up on one or more of the three dice, you get paid. If you bet the triple and land three matching icons, you get the big bucks: a 30:1 payday.

Play Baccarat and step into the glamorous world of winners

There’s something quite deluxe about playing baccarat online. It’s a reminder of VIP settings, opulent images of luxury, movie casino magic complete with black tie, flowing evening gowns and copious amounts of champagne. At Ignition Casino, we give you a dose of all that glitz and glamor with our very own baccarat, with much lower betting minimums, and you can play in your sweats with a couple of beers. We will never tell.
For as little as $1 a round, you can bet on the banker or the player, who are both trying to outscore each other. If you think they could end up with the same score, bet the tie for your chance of a 9:1 payout.

To play, you first choose whether to bet on the player, the banker, a tie or a combination of all three by placing chips ($1, $5, $25, $100 or $500) on the marked circles on the table and clicking the “Deal” button. Both the player and the banker will then receive two cards. Victory goes to the party with the highest total hand value.

Baccarat is a classic and elegant online table game you will enjoy after just a few rounds. Try it now!

The sound of a little ball rolling around a roulette wheel gets people pumped at a bricks and mortar casino, and our online casino is no exception.

Caribbean Stud Poker is hot, hot, hot!

Craving some quick and fun poker action without the hassle of hosting a tournament? Fire up Caribbean Stud Poker and go a few rounds of head-to-head with the dealer. You can double your ante if you think you’ve got the better five-card hand, and enjoy some bonus features while you’re at it.

This game shares a progressive jackpot with Caribbean Hold’em and Caribbean Draw Poker, so it accumulates fast. Get in on the jackpot bet, and pocket portions or the entire thing when you land an incredible hand.
If you think you have the better hand, raise doubling your ante. If you don’t think you can beat the dealer, fold. If you do, you forfeit your ante. To win, you must beat the dealer’s hand and the dealer must qualify with a hand that has an ace and a king or better. If the dealer does not qualify, you are paid 1 to 1 on your ante and your raise is returned to you as a push. If your hand beats the dealer’s and the dealer qualifies, you’re paid on the ante and your raise. The payoff of the ante is 1 to 1. The payout on your bet will be determined by the quality of your hand. If the dealer beats your hand, you lose your ante and your bet. If you and the dealer have the same hand, the next highest card decides who wins.

Add your chances to win the progressive jackpot and you’re playing for some serious payouts.

Pai Gow Poker is challenging and ultra-entertaining

Pai Gow is a Chinese gambling game played with a set of 32 dominoes. Pai Gow Poker was created in the United States in 1985, and is played with a standard 52-card deck, plus a single joker. The object is to create a five-card poker hand and a two-card poker hand from seven cards that beat both of the dealer’s hands.
It’s a simple game to play, but there are some added Pai Gow Poker rules you need to learn. First, your high hand always has to rank higher than your low hand. If you play at a live casino and get this wrong, you’ll foul your hand and lose your bet. At Ignition Casino, we protect you by letting you know you’ve made a mistake and giving you the chance to try again.

Second, the joker in Pai Gow Poker is considered “semi-wild” – you can only use it to complete straights or flushes, including the rare straight flush and royal flush. Otherwise, your joker always counts as an ace. Four queens and a joker cannot be used to make five of a kind – only four aces will do.

Finally, there’s a special twist to the rankings for your high hand. The second-best straight you can make in Pai Gow Poker is five-four-three-deuce-ace, also known as the wheel. In regular poker, this would be the lowest possible straight. Other than this special rule, standard poker rankings (plus five of a kind) apply for your high hand.

If you and the dealer each have a hand of the same rank, the hand with the higher kicker will win – if there is one. Occasionally, you’ll have exactly the same hand down to the kicker(s), but it’s rare, and it usually happens with unpaired 2-card hands. Don’t forget, these ties go to the dealer at showdown.
