Cash games, also sometimes referred to as ring games or live action games, are poker games played with “real” chips and money at stake, usually with no predetermined end time, with players able to enter and leave as they see fit. Players may freely buy into or cash out of a cash game between hands. However, it is normally prohibited for a player to remove a portion of his or her chips from the table. This is known as “going south”. In “no limit” poker cash games, some cardrooms have a maximum buy-in for cash games.
In limit poker games, there is seldom a maximum buy-in because betting limits already limit the amount a player can wager on each hand. In a casino, a rake is usually taken from a pot if a flop is shown and the pot reaches certain values. Some games take a time rake instead of a pot rake. In these games players pay a seat charge every half-hour. While the terms “ring game” and “cash game” are often considered synonymous in common usage, opinion differs on the true definition of “ring game”. For example, in the glossary of Doyle Brunson’s Super System 2, a ring game is defined as “A game with a player in every seat, that is, a full game—as opposed to a shorthanded game”.
Tournaments and cash games have different basic strategies. Other differences between cash games and tournament poker are that, in cash games sometimes straddles and chops are allowed. A live straddle is a dark bet of two big blinds by the player first to act, who is then entitled to bet again if the bet is not raised.

Games available in most casinos are commonly called casino games. In a casino game, the players gamble casino chips on various possible random outcomes or combinations of outcomes. There are three general categories of casino games: table games, electronic gaming machines, and random number ticket games such as keno. Gaming machines, such as slot machines and pachinko, are usually played by one player at a time and do not require the involvement of casino employees to play. Casino games generally provide a predictable long-term advantage to the casino, or “house”, while offering the player the possibility of a large short-term payout.
The player’s disadvantage is a result of the casino not paying winning wagers according to the game’s “true odds”, which are the payouts that would be expected considering the odds of a wager either winning or losing. For example, if a game is played by wagering on the number that would result from the roll of one die, true odds would be 5 times the amount wagered since there is a 1 in 6 chance of any single number appearing, assuming that you get the original amount wagered back. The house edge or vigorish is defined as the casino profit expressed as the percentage of the player’s original bet. In games such as blackjack or Spanish 21, the final bet may be several times the original bet, if the player double and splits. This leads to a higher house edge compared to the European roulette.
Therefore, the house edge is 5. Poker has become one of the most popular games played in the casino. It is a game of skill and the only game where the players are competing against each other and not the house. There are several variations of poker that are played in casino card rooms. The house edge of casino games vary greatly with the game, with some games having as low as 0. Australian Pontoon games have house edges between 0.
