Here is a list of commonly used casino jargon:

- Deuce: In dice, a pair of ones, also known as "snake eyes."

- Hard Hand - In blackjack, any hand that does not contain an Ace valued at 11
- Hit: Taking another card in blackjack, as in "Hit me."
- Let it ride: Letting the winnings on a bet roll over to the next bet. See also "pressing a bet."

- River - In poker, the final card dealt in a hand of stud or hold‘em. In seven-card stud, staying in until the fifth and final round of betting is called going to the river
- Third base: In blackjack, the player sitting just to the dealer's right. This player is considered important on the table because they are the last to play before the dealer plays their hand.
