Microgaming and Gambling Dominoes
Gambling domino cards refer to the pairs of cards which are dealt off from one to another in a traditional deck of cards before all of them have been won. In a standard deck of playing cards there are twenty-four suits: clubs, diamonds, hearts, spades, jacks, spade, clubs, and hearts. In a gambling setup, a typical set of playing cards will consist of ninety-two cards, but a few variations only contain fifty-two cards total. There is also what is known as an odd pair of cards which have an even number of cards in the deck. Most casinos use variant decks as it increases their chances of winning.
There are two types of gambling domino sets available for use at an online casino or via Microgaming. These include full sized versions and mini sizes. A full sized version is a standard size deck which contains sixty-two cards. A mini version is a smaller version which measures between forty-six to forty-eight inches wide and between seventy-four to seventy-five inches long. Both versions can be printed using paper card printers with a resolution of up to nine hundred dots per square inch.
There are many different varieties of gambling dominoes which have the ability to be printed in either full color or simple black and white versions. In either version, it is possible for the playing table to see which tiles a particular player has drawn before they begin the hand. This is called a ‘tell’. Each player receives a set of fifteen playing tiles before the first deal; the remainder of the deck can be used after this.
