Of all the card games offered in casinos, poker is the most popular among the skilled group of players. You need to understand the basics of the game before you get started with the session on the table. Only people above the age of eighteen can play poker, and a table accommodates any number of players but require at least 2 people to get started. The game is played with a standard 52-card deck, with additions of one or two jokers. Though the game used to be played with a single pack, many casinos are now offering sessions with multiple packs.
