Online Casino?

Anyone know of a good online game of casino?

I'm looking for an online version of casino. Google isn't really helping because "casino" gets misinterpreted. Anyone know where I can find a version to play?

Wikipedia suggests "pasur" under see also. The pasur entry has links to some games. Is it the same?

I didn't know that anyone outside my family knew how to play that game! Here's hoping there's something out there.

There's a variant called "Stealing the Old Man's Bundle," but google doesn't bring up anything meaningful. I too await an answer to this one.

Now that I re-google, it's called "Steal the Old Man's Bundle" and it can be either a Go-fish type came or a Casino variant, depending on the rules. Here's a link to a freeware download (untested; at your own risk; etc.)

I don't have an answer but I played a lot of Basra with my Lebanese girlfriend's family - very similar. Just thought I'd give you another search term.

This and this are linked from the very bottom of the page linked in the question.

The former is freeware; the latter lets you play online against other humans.

I just spent the last 20 minutes or so playing the first one, and it works ok. The interface isn't as quick or intuitive as it could be, but it gets the job done.

While we're listing variant names, I've also seen the game called Scoba in Corsica.

How embarrassing, the answer was right under my nose. Although the online play in the linked program is only available in the registered version. I should have included "free" in my question. Anyway, the offline game is pretty fun too.

Wow! I thought that my brother had invented this game in his neverending quest to cheat me at cards. Now that I know that this is a real game, I am definitely going to check out the links provided in this thread. Thanks for the question, and thanks to everyone who provided an answer!
