Oregon Casino Games
Since Oregon Tribal Casinos are mostly Class III casinos, they are able to operate a plethora of casino games. There are a few basic types of games on offer.
Table Games at Oregon Casinos
Table games are the games that traditionally use live dealers, as opposed to slot machines and video poker games. There are several different table games available in Oregon.
Oregon Casino Games – Craps
Craps is played at a handful of casinos in Oregon. The payouts are not the same on ever craps table in the state which is worth noting, and no matter what he tells you, Dana at Chinook Winds didn’t write the handout that the casino gives to players about the rules.
Craps is a casino game played with dice. One player ‘the shooter’ will throw the dice across the craps table, and all of the players will make bets on the outcome of the dice. It’s actually one of the most complicated games played in any casino. There are some easy bets that players can make though as they get started.

Roulette Casino Game
Roulette is a game played in Oregon casinos that involves a little spinning wheel, and a metal marble.
To start, each player is given a color, the player will exchange cash or casino chips for the roulette chips in their color. The player will then bet on where marble will land on the wheel when both the marble and the wheel stop spinning.
The wheel in some 1 direction by a croupier, or dealer, and the marble, placed on the wheel is spun the other way. Eventually, the ball will stop spinning and fall into one of the numbered and colored squares. In the meantime, roulette players will have bet on potential outcomes.
