I've included the blackjack options by themselves, since blackjack players tend to be their own breed. RealTime Gaming's blackjack selection is interesting, so I wanted to highlight these games for readers new to the 21 table.
The classic version of blackjack, usually played with 6 decks. RTG blackjack follows the standard rules, such as surrender, insurance, and the dealer standing on a soft 17.
Blackjack + Perfect Pairs
The same as the above, except it has a side bet which pays when a player is dealt a pair. The side bet pays for a matching pair of two colors (5:1), a matching pair of the same color (10:1), and a matching pair of the same suit (30:1). Statistically speaking, it's not a high percentage bet.
Specific rules for casinos in Berlin and Hamburg, according to the Wizard of Odds website. Includes rules such as the dealer standing on a soft 17, doubling after a split (but only on hard totals of 9-11), six decks, and no-peek, meaning you lose your full bet when the dealer has a natural 21.
Face Up 21
Known as "Double Exposure" in most casinos, it's the version of blackjack which allows you to see both of the dealer's cards. On the other hand, the dealer wins on all ties (except a blackjack). Also, a blackjack only pays even money for the player, and that player is allowed to split only once.
Match Play 21
Like Spanish 21, this game takes out all cards with a 10-rank. This makes it much harder to get blackjacks, but increases the chances of receiving a 7-card. The 777 blackjack pays off more than other hands of 21, including a 40-to-1 payout on a 777 when the dealer also holds a 7.
A natural blackjack is called a "Pontoon" in this game, but it's the best hand. The second-best hand is a 5-card trick, which is any 5-card hand which hasn't busted. Pontoon should not be confused with Australian Pontoon, which is called "Spanish 21" in the United States.
Suit 'Em Up™ Blackjack
Introduced in Las Vegas in 2014, this is standard blackjack for the main game with a side bet based on the suit of the cards dealt. Two cards of the same suit pay, with 60:1 payouts for suited aces. A suited blackjack pays 10:1.
Player hands with 6 or more cards which equal 20 or less automatically win, unless you doubled. Player hands with 5 or more cards which equal 21 automatically win. Several other quirky rules are offered. This is the game known as "Super Fun 21" in Las Vegas.
Beginners need to learn basic strategy if they want the great odds blackjack offers. Each game listed above has its own basic strategy chart, so find a free printable blackjack chart for your game and study your basic strategy.
Table games are those casino games which aren't found on slots row, video poker row, or the poker room. Club World Casino has all the essential table games, though some of them might be hard to find in the downloadable casino lobby. The non-blackjack table games are listed below.
- Caribbean Draw Poker
- Caribbean Hold'Em Poker

- Let' Em Ride

Club World Casino Video Poker
Club World Casino offers 17 types of video poker. The list includes the most popular versions of draw poker (Jacks or Better), as well as the versions with the best payout percentage (Deuces Wild, Loose Deuces).
Club World Casino has a list of "specialty games" which might confuse some players. Generally speaking, a specialty game is not found among the standard tables games on a brick-and-mortar casino's gaming floor, but is offered by the online casino. Specialty games include lotto-style gaming like Keno, Bingo, and Online Scratch Cards as well as arcade-style games such as pinball.
Club World Casino expands the definition to include games like craps and roulette. I consider any of those to be table games, but I include them in the list below, so you'll know where in the casino lobby to find them.
- 5 Diamond Blackjack
- American Roulette
- Bonus Bingo
- European Roulette
- French Roulette
- Hot Dice

- Magic 7's

Club World Casino Online Slots
Club World Casino has 133 different slot machines in all categories: video slots, Real Series slots, 3-reel classic, and progressive jackpot slot machines. All of them are RealTime Gaming slot machines, which offer one of the best combinations of playability and prizes in the US gaming market.
We have discussed many RTG games in other casino reviews, but the following slots are worth playing for their notable features or unique gameplay.
Popular RTG Slots:
7s and Stripes
This is a 3-reel classic, meaning it has low fixed jackpots, but lots of action and a nice payout percentage. The player wins a jackpot after 29 consecutive losses.
Club World Casino Slots
A branded game based on night clubs. It is a 25 payline game with wilds, scatters, and a random progressive jackpot. Look for the V.I.P. logo, which serves as the wild and the jackpot symbol.
Dream Run Slots
A 25 payline game based on street racing, like "The Fast & the Furious." It includes a local progressive, as well as mini and major symbol-driven jackpots. Dream Run also has wild symbols and scatter symbols.
Glitz & Glamour
A highly volatile game based on upper-class people of the 1920s (think Downton Abbey). It has a local progressive, as well as major and minor random progressives. It also includes free spins.
I list Hockey Hero because it has the Win-Win Feature. If you get a sub-standard payout on the Bonus Game (defined as less than 10x the initial bet), then the Win-Win feature triggers and you instead win 200x the initial bet. To trigger the Win-Win, you need to have made the max bet. The Win-Win Feature is also found on Basketbull, Mice Dice, and Megasaur.
Club World Casino has a section for its "progressive jackpots." These are not only the progressive slots, but also table games with accumulated jackpots on them. Players should note these do not include the dozens of Real Series slots which have "random progressives." A random progressive jackpot is one which is triggered at any time during the game, regardless of reel placement. A random progressive jackpot is smaller than the life-changing progressives many people want, so Club World Casino does not list them in this section.
This is another popular RTG which offers a progressive jackpot, currently listed at $1.8 million. This makes Aztec's Millions the 3rd-highest progressive jackpot for online US players currently.
Caribbean Hold'Em Poker
This is Caribbean Stud Poker adapted for the casino's most popular poker game, Texas Hold'em. Players are dealt two cards, while everyone at the table builds a hand from 3 community card. Also contains a progressive side bet.
Caribbean Stud Poker
The original Caribbean-style poker game. Players receive 5 cards and must beat the dealer's hand. A side bet contains the progressive.
Jackpot Cleopatra's Gold
An Ancient Egypt themed slots game with a progressive jackpot. Based on the popular Cleopatra's Gold Slots, an old hit for RTG.
The key reel symbols in this game are Mexican piñatas. The bull piñata triggers the progressive jackpot. The donkey piñata is the wild symbol, while the dog piñata is the scatter symbol. At present, the jackpot on this game sits at $1.7 million, making it the 4th-highest progressive jackpot for US players on the Internet right now.
Let 'Em Ride
Let 'Em Ride is RTG's version of the popular Shufflemaster game, Let It Ride. Players are given three cards, which are pitted against the dealer's three cards. As each of the dealer's cards are revealed, the player chooses whether to leave a third of their bet on the table or let the bet ride.
This dinosaur-themed games offers a scatter symbol and two wild symbols. It also has 3 bonus games and a wide-area networked progressive. This progressive features a 3-tier jackpot. The current jackpot sits at $980,000, making it the 7th-highest jackpot for US players on the Internet.
Spirit of the Inca
Spirit of the Inca is a 5-reel, 25 payline game with 6 jackpots, including the Boiling Point prize and a wide-area progressive with a 5-tier progressive: Grand, Maxi, Major, Minor, and Mini progressives.
One of the novel facets of the Club World Casino is its slots tournaments. These allow players to compete in a race to score points. Those who accumulate the most points win cash prizes. Buy-ins range from $1 events all the way up to high roller stakes. Whatever the buy-in, you receive thousands of dollars in virtual chips to play in the tournament.
Slots tournaments run all day, every day. Each event has a guaranteed prize pool. To enter, click on the "tournaments" button in the downloaded casino software. This takes you to the tournament lobby, where you can see which tournaments are available. Tournament winnings are paid the moment the event ends.
