The history of online casinos
Historians have found that the roots of modern casino are probably in Asia, but some also believe that casinos come from Italy and games of chance have been played here for many hundreds of years. In the Middle Ages it was still a game for the ruling classes, but the emigrants brought different variants to places like America, where they developed their very own variants. Well-known casino cities like Las Vegas have since emerged, and many people have been taken by the thrill of big-time winnings in the gaming halls of the world, and their appeal has only been furthered by such films as Rainman, the blackjack classic 21, the Ocean's 13 film series, and James Bond. It is therefore no wonder that with the first home Internet connections in 1994 the first online casino was brought on the market. At that time, of course, the games were still very simple and there were only a few functions. The results of the cards, slot machines and dice are obtained in virtual casino games using a pseudorandom number generator (PRNG). However, since these results cannot be predetermined, they guarantee fairness, thrills and a great gaming experience even in online casino games. Since the beginning of the online casino, things have gone uphill and today you can expect a colourful, varied and exciting world - the online casino of Hyperino brings the kick of Las Vegas directly into your home!
Typical games that you can expect in an Online Casino
The classic online casino offers a variety of computer-generated slot machines and table games, but you will also find popular card classics such as poker, baccarat and blackjack here. As a rule, after registering and signing up for a game lobby, you will get a good overview of the range of casino games. These often range from colourful, yet simple game variants, to music-themed action games - regardless of whether it is a table, machine or card game. You are able to pick whatever you are in the mood for. In the games themselves you can define settings such as an "auto-play" function, music and sound, as well as fixed bets, allowing you to freely determine how involved you want to be in each individual bet. If you want to play with real money, you usually have to go to a separate lobby and have to make a deposit before you can start. However, this can be an advantage as by doing this you will often be offered large bonuses for your deposit and a free round or two for the games. If you want to play with online money, then just choose the game and off you go!
With slot machine games in particular the variations and variety are great: In addition to the number of reels, you will often find thematic symbols and entire stories that go with your bet. You will find the typical slot symbols here with the iconic fruits, such as cherries, oranges and lemons, but of course also much more. Immerse yourself in the world of the Thousand and One Nights by searching for magical lamps, desert sands or snake flutes in a row. Or sail with Jack Sparrow across the seven seas and find the coins and chests of pirate’s treasure. These great casino games will take you to strange places and give you a very special gaming pleasure!
In addition to the normal, single-stage reel games - with a fixed grid, thematic symbols and paylines as in the classic one-armed bandits in Las Vegas - many special features await you in the online casino: if you want to just play a few bets and maybe even always bet the same amount, you can often do so with an auto-play feature and just watch and marvel at the exciting results, without having to operate the button at the beginning of every bet. However, if you do want to do this yourself, you just press the animated lever after setting your bet or use the button to move the reels. If you manage to get the same symbol on a payline, not only have you won the bet, but the online casino often offers you a special bonus game in which you can increase your profits even further. Also, online slot games often offer special winning symbols that can lead to free spins and special winnings. Just look at the short description for each game.
Before playing: Internet connection and technical requirements
New players in particular are often worried that they have to meet certain technical requirements to play in an online casino. We are here to reassure you: no matter if you play casino games via mobile app or directly on the Hyperino website, all you need is an internet connection and your mobile phone, PC or tablet. Even if your internet connection is interrupted while playing a Hyperino Casino game, you do not have to worry. Of course, you will not lose your stake in the ongoing game. The bet is frozen until you are reconnected. If you still have questions, feel free to contact Hyperino Customer Support at any time to learn more about our games and technical requirements.
Legal and geographic features of online casinos
You may already have noticed that while many online casinos are offered in German and English, their headquarters are in less well-known countries and on small islands. This is completely understandable, as many casino operators are only registered at selected locations due to tax and legal regulations on the international gambling market. These often include offshore financial centres in southern Europe such as Gibraltar or island countries such as the Isle of Man, Cyprus and Malta. In these countries, the licenses are then issued to operate a casino and checked the operation of state-authorized inspectors. As a player, you can be sure that the virtual casino games are really left to chance and therefore fair!
Tips and Tricks – especially for beginners and new casino players
You probably already know or recognise many casino games from movies or cosy games with friends. It is not much different here at Hyperino, but of course you have a much wider selection of games here and you can visit us anytime. If you are in the casino for the first time, you might just want to play straight away. Of course you can do that, but the "Learning by Doing" approach is not always recommended here. It depends on how important the players’ luck and ability are for making profit - because casino games are often about gambling! These games are all about your gaming experience - put your feet up and watch as the dice, balls and cards are revealed. In addition to pure gambling, which often includes slot games and blackjack variants, there are clear strategies and tips for some games that can help earn you money! Therefore, always make sure that you are familiar with the rules in games such as poker and can therefore play consciously. So you can bet on the right strategy right from the start and win. It is also worth trying out the different game variants to see which one suits you best – that way you can take advantage of all the best bonuses and free spins.
Everybody knows this scene from one of the legendary movie classics: A man in a hat sits at a table in the casino and holds an ace and a black 9 face down. The dealer places the second card, an 8, on the table next to the Jack of hearts already lying there. The man smiles and happily finishes his martini.
Never been to a casino but curious about this glittering world of cards and big wins? Then surely you know Blackjack, because this extremely popular game with simple rules can also be found in other places such as arcades and sports bars. It is exciting and easily accessible at the same time, which is why you will quickly be captivated by this game. Blackjack, also known colloquially as 21, is a particularly popular and classic casino card game that you can play in the dazzling casinos in Las Vegas and Monaco as well as in our online casino at Hyperino. It is no wonder too, as this is a simple as well as exciting game that requires no prior knowledge and can be played very easily with a just few tips and tricks. The aim of the game is to reach the numerical value 21 with the playing cards - sounds easy! Here you play together with one or more computer-generated or real players against the dealer (also known as a croupier among casino professionals), who runs the game and deals the cards. As a player, in each round you must try to get a higher value than the dealer in your hand (where you can have two or more cards). With a bit of luck, you might even succeed in getting a "blackjack", namely a numeric value of 21. You should not exceed this; if you do so, it is called a "bust" and ends the round, and the dealer wins by default. Blackjack is highly recommended for new casino players, because if you are new to online casinos, the chances of the player winning are nearly as high as those of the house, so with a little luck and finesse you can play this game with high chances of success.
Regardless of whether you are playing at Hyperino or at a physical casino, blackjack is usually played at a bean-shaped table, with other (computer-animated) players on the outside and a dealer on the inside. Depending on the game variant, classic blackjack can be played with up to 6 players sitting around the long out-side, in a semicircle. The dealer takes the cards from the "card slide", distributes them and discards them after each round. From here, the rules of the game often differ in terms of the maximum number of players, the number of stacks of cards used (in traditional blackjack, you play with 6 or even 8 stacks of cards) and whether bonus rules and insurance are possible. But do not worry, here at Hyperino we will always inform you of the precise rules applicable of your chosen casino game variant!
Blackjack rules and important hints
Blackjack is characterised by its simple play structure - you just have to count the sum of your cards and make sure they are not higher than 21. So, the setup of our casino game variations at Hyperino is no different from the bean-shaped tables that you might know from movies and physical casinos. In online casinos you have the advantage that in addition to the classic design there are often great background animations and occasionally there are slight game variations available. Just take a look and choose the design that suits your current mood!
As with other classic casino games, you choose a game, automatically sit down at the table and place your bets. Often you also have the option to set it for several games thanks to an auto-play feature, so you do not have to repeat it after each round. Bear in mind that the applicable betting limits may vary at different gaming tables. But do not worry - they will of course always be displayed in the game, which is why we only dedicate this little side note to the betting limits.
After you, and any other players present, have placed your bets, you will receive the playing cards for that round from the dealer. First, everyone gets an open card and then everyone receives a second card, except for the dealer, which is also visible to all and in front of the respective player. Only now does the dealer get his second card. This ends the dealing of the cards and you as a player are on the move.
Look at your cards. Now you have to decide if you want one or more cards from the dealer (indicated by saying "hit me" in game jargon) or if you prefer to pass (indicated by saying "stay"). This process is played through until all the players and the dealer have passed. The goal is to get as close as possible to the numerical value of 21 without exceeding it. This is where you need a good hand and a pinch of luck - because if you have over 21 you go "bust" and that round goes to the dealer.
Just like the players, the dealer also has to decide what he wants to do. This is given in online casino games by an algorithm, whereas in a physical casino each house has different rules that you ought to be aware of as a player! In general, however, it can be assumed that the dealer will pass if the card total is 17 or more, and draw a third card from the card slide if not. Experienced blackjack players say "dealer must stand on 17 and must draw to 16".
Now we have told you a lot about the card sum, but not yet what this is exactly and how to calculate it. But do not worry, this is easy to learn! As with other card games, cards with a number always have the respective card value. All cards with a picture have a value of 10 points. Only the ace is special: it can be worth either 1 or even 11 points, depending on what the current situation requires. For example: you have an ace of hearts and an 8, so you have 11 + 8 = 19, which can only be beaten by a 20 or 21 and thus has good odds.
You win as a player if the dealer has more than 21 (in which case all players win equally) or if your card value is higher than that of the dealer. If two players or a player and the dealer have the same card total, it is a draw and the prize is shared. After distributing the winnings, a new round begins.
General game strategy in blackjack depending on your card value
As you've probably noticed, blackjack has a lot to do with having the right card value in your hand and deciding whether or not to draw a card. For centuries, this question has occupied many blackjack players, which is why certain winning strategies have evolved over time.
There is a very well known, fairly easy winning strategy for blackjack. This is based on the fact that in blackjack the probabilities for different combinations of cards can be calculated very accurately (which we will not go into here). If you are interested, you can read about it all with tables and graphs online! When it is your turn to choose, you already have a lot of important information: you know your cards, the dealer's and, if applicable, the other players' cards. Based on this, there is an - at least statistically - optimal strategy on which your decision for a "hit" or "stay" should be based. The rest is luck. If you follow this strategy, you will soon realise how profitable it is!
But what are the strategies for different card combinations? Even inexperienced players think that even a 17 or 18 is enough for a win. However, this is rarely the case and you should always keep in mind which open card the dealer has in front of him. With a picture card or a high number card he can easily outdo you with the second card. Dare to be calm, especially if one of your two cards is an Ace. You cannot go bust because your ace can just take the value 1 in this case.
You should proceed differently, however, if your cards together have a card value of 12-16, while the dealer has a card with the value of 2 to 6. In this case, you should not take any more cards! Naturally, you think your card total is too low, but keep in mind that in this situation the dealer has a high risk of overbetting and then the players win automatically.
From France to Las Vegas – the exciting story of blackjack
The popular casino card games such as blackjack are often many hundreds of years old and have been brought from Europe to Asia and America through wars, conquests and emigration waves. The story of blackjack begins in the same way: in late eighteenth-century France, it was a popular parlour game at the French court with the high nobility. Thanks to its simplicity and the kick of good gambling it was even played by simple soldiers in the barracks. Thus, it is easy to explain why you will often find the French name Vingt-et-un (French for 21) as a term for blackjack. As described above, European emigrants took the game to the US colonies, causing blackjack to spread across the more French-speaking south around New Orleans. Due to its increasing popularity among non-French-speaking Americans, the game followed the gold miners west and reached the state of Nevada and Las Vegas at the end of the 19th century - the city that never sleeps. At the time, the English name Blackjack had established itself because of the highest winning combination, a Jack and a Ten. Where did the name come from exactly? Well, if a player had not just any colour, but a face card of either clubs or spades and an ace of spades, this was called a "blackjack in the pocket".
Blackjack quickly became a hit in Nevada. The state was the first to allow commercial gambling to be able, through the tax revenue, to get more money flowing into their strained coffers. With workers and settlers stopping off in Las Vegas on their way to the West Coast at the time, a real gambling industry quickly developed in the desert state, from which the state benefitted significantly. The iconic images that we have of glitzy and ornate casino halls in Las Vegas come from these times, especially the golden 1920’s. So it is no wonder that Las Vegas has become one of the most famous casino cities in the world and that blackjack is closely linked to this success story.
The methods of card counting and their chances of success
Surely you know the well-known Hollywood movie "21", set in the 90’s, about a group of mathematics students from MIT, who, by mental arithmetic, were able to win a lot of money in blackjack games in Las Vegas and other major casino cities. What you probably did not know is that the film was based on a true story and led to the card counting method being banned! We want to tell you something more about the method of card counting, because its genesis is really exciting.
Blackjack players have always tried to beat the casino by counting cards, as it is theoretically possible to predict the remaining cards. In 1962, American mathematics professor E. Thorp published his well-known book "Beat the Dealer", in which he described how is it possible to calculate the chances of winning by counting the remaining cards. Many blackjack players followed the strategies of the book and found that they could achieve higher profits in the long run. Of course, this required more mathematical knowledge and the ability to remember many cards - but Thorp showed that it was possible to beat the house with mathematics!
Many casinos desperately tried to stop it, and for the first time in the history of blackjack the official casino rules were changed. Of course, the players tried to fight back, but the casino operators remained adamant so as not to lose money at the blackjack tables. They introduced more stacks of cards and improved the technology, using mechanical card shufflers to eliminate human errors. In recent years, special cameras have been installed to detect the method of card counting. But even if this method is no longer allowed, you as a player in blackjack still have a very good chance!
