Gambling is part of human nature and human history, with the first-known recorded activities happening in Ancient China around 2300 BC. European casinos go back to 1638’s Ridotto in Venice, Italy, and many games were first seen in the noble homes of the aristocracy before becoming more widespread.
Now, thanks to cutting-edge online and mobile technology, anyone can enjoy high-quality gambling pursuits at any time. If you’re in New Zealand, Euro Palace is the best place to do this and we offer live dealer and conventional online games.
Live dealer attractions bring trained game operators to wherever you are via video feed, and you get to watch events unfold in real time. Sumptuous settings and professional dealers will make you feel as if you are sitting in Las Vegas, rather than the comfort of your own living room!
Scratchcards, Casual Games, Craps and several other games are part of the Euro Palace library, but the categories with the most variations are those that are most popular: pokies, Blackjack, Video Poker, Baccarat and Roulette.
Also known as slots, the appeal of these games lies in their simple gameplay and instant rewards. Over time, the more detailed video pokies that have arisen are perfect for those who want to be totally immersed in the reels, and feel more like a video gamer when they play. On the classic and video slot games at Euro Palace, you’ll be treated to fabulous graphics, functionality and payouts.
Beat the dealer’s hand and get a total of under 21 to win at Blackjack, or hit 21 on the nose for the game’s best payout of 3:2! We offer several variations of this beloved classic, including multi-hand games. Try Vegas Strip, Spanish 21, Pontoon, Double Exposure, Atlantic City and many other games – we challenge you to find your favourite!
Video Poker is a very unique entertainment that brings instant-win action together with table game-style strategy. You are dealt 5 cards at once, and need to decide how many to keep and how many to replace in a single turn as you try to build the best possible Poker-ranked hand. Use Video Poker titles for their own entertainment and rewards, or play them as a way to get into table Poker games by getting familiar with the hand rankings and making quick decisions.
All you have to do in our Punto Banco variations of Baccarat is bet on whether the Player (Punto) or Banker (Banco) hand will win, or if they will tie. You’ll be amazed at how this can engage you for hours, and will soon understand why Baccarat is the favourite casino game of James Bond.
Bet on where the ball will land in our American, European and French variations of Roulette, and even try for a progressive jackpot with Roulette Royale. Go for the more general Outside Bets such as Red/Black or Odd/Even, or get much more specific with Inside Bets and put money on certain ranges of numbers or even the specific pocket that the ball will land in, depending on how lucky you’re feeling!
Give these and all our other games a try and see why so many players love Euro Palace Casino New Zealand!
