What games does Captain's Online Casino have?
The list is big AND constantly growing. Click here to see the complete list. Every day we are working in new concepts and developing new games. You will be notified automatically whenever a new game becomes available.
How is the outcome of the games being generated?
Captain's Online Casino is using a very sophisticated Random Number Generator (RNG) to create a randomized outcome for each game. The odds for both real money and fun modes games are created with this random number generator. In all card-based games, like Blackjack and Baccarat, the decks of cards are shuffled prior to each hand being dealt.
How do I chat with other players?
All you need to do is click on the 'Chat' button in Multi-player and Private-group tables then type whatever you want to say to the other players. To send the text, click on the 'Chat' button again, or press ENTER.
What is a Multi player or Private group table?
To play with other players all you need to do is join a multiplayer table. The system automatically assigns you to a table where there is an empty seat. A Private-Group table is where you can play alone with your friends without being interrupted by other players. In order to join a Private-Group table you have to type-in the name of the table you wish to join. If the table has been created by your friends, you will join this table, if not - than a table will be created for you (then you can tell your friends to join you.).
What happens if I am suddenly disconnected from the Internet while I play?
Losing your Internet connection does not pose a problem when you play at Captain's Online Casino. We have developed a sophisticated system which protects the player in when this happens. If you get disconnected (for whatever reason) in the middle of a game, there's no need to worry. While playing Blackjack, Craps or Video Poker you will automatically be returned to the EXACT state were the game was interrupted. This allows you to continue exactly from where you left off, and you will continue playing and making game decisions as if nothing happened.
In games like Slots and Roulette, where the player does not make decisions in the game after the round had been started, you can just log-in to the casino again and see how the game had finished by clicking on the 'Game history' button.
What do I do if after placing a bet I suddenly change my mind?
In games like Blackjack, Roulette, Craps and Baccarat click on the chips that you wish to remove with your right mouse button. In Roulette you can also click on the 'Clear Bet' button to remove your entire bets from the table. In Slots and Video poker, press the 'Cash out' button to remove your coins from the machine back to your balance
. If other coins remain in the machine, don't worry, they will automatically return to your balance once you exit the game.
Where can I find complete detailed instructions on the various games?
Our download software comes with context sensitive 'Help'. Whenever you need help, click the Help button in the casino lobby for a complete set of instructions and explanations on all Casino games. In addition, you can view our on-line help file by clicking here.
How old do I have to be to play for real money?
In order to play for real money you must be at least 18 years of age. Fun mode players have no age limitations.
I am not sure what was the previous game round result. What do I do?
