Blackjack Playing Guide

Blackjack is the most popular table game in the United States and it’s easily found in casinos around the world. The object of the game is simply to get more points than the dealer without going over 21.

HOW TO PLAY

• Blackjack is played with standard 52 card decks.
• All cards count as face value, except for the King, Queen and Jack which count as 10, and the Ace which counts as either 1 or 11, player’s choice.
• Each player and the dealer are initially dealt two cards. Both of the player’s cards are dealt face up. The dealer’s cards are dealt with one face up and one face down. The face down card is called the dealer’s “hole card.”
• If the player’s first two cards are an Ace and a ten value card the player will have Blackjack and will be paid 3-2 unless the dealer also has a Blackjack. In this case it is a push (tie) and will neither win nor lose.
• If the dealer’s first two cards are an Ace and a ten value card the dealer will have Blackjack and will beat the player’s hand unless the player also has a Blackjack. In this case it is a push (tie) and the player will neither win nor lose.
• If the player has less than 21, the player will have the opportunity to draw more cards to better the hand by signaling for a “hit”. If the player goes over 21, the player “busts” and loses the hand.
• The player will signal the dealer to “stand” if he is satisfied with the point total of the hand.
• The dealer must continue to draw cards if the point count of the dealer’s hand is less than 17. Once the dealer’s hand is 17 or more the dealer will “stand” and will not draw anymore cards.
• If the dealer’s hand point total is less than the player’s hand point total or if the dealer goes over 21 while drawing cards, the player wins.
• If the player’s hand point total is less than the dealer’s hand point total or if the player hand goes over 21, the player loses.

ADDITIONAL BETS

Doubling Down – Except for a natural blackjack, a player may elect to double down on the first two cards dealt to the player or the first two cards of any split pair on the condition that one additional card shall be dealt to the hand on which the player has elected to double down.

Splitting Pairs – Whenever the initial two cards dealt to a player are identical in value, the player may elect to split the hand into two separate hands provided that the player makes a wager on the second hand in an amount equal to the original wager. A player may split their hand 3 times for up to four hands. Split Aces will only receive one card.

Insurance – Whenever the first card dealt to the dealer is an ace, each player shall have the right to make an insurance bet that wins if the dealer’s second card is a king, queen, jack or 10 and shall lose if the dealer’s second card is an ace, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9.

Craps Playing Guide

Craps is considered one of the most exciting and fast pace games in a casino. The origin of dice games go back to ancient times but most believe today’s version is an adaption of a western European game called Hazard. Today’s crap game provides the player multiple ways to bet and win!

HOW TO PLAY

These are the different bets that you can make on a crap game:

PASS LINE BET
A wager made on the Come Out Roll which wins if the first roll is 7 or 11, and loses if the first roll is 2, 3 or 12. If the first roll is 4, 5,6,8,9, or 10, this is considered the Point. Pass Line wagers win if the Shooter rolls the Point again prior to rolling a 7. If the Shooter rolls a 7 before repeating the Point the Pass Line bet loses. The dice are passed to the next Player when the Shooter rolls a 7 before making the Point. A Pass Line wager may not be removed or reduced once a Point is established.

DON’T PASS BET
A wager that may only be made prior to the Come Out Roll. This wager is opposite the Pass Line in that you lose when the first roll of the dice is 7 or 11 and win if the first roll of the dice is 2 or 3. When the first roll of the dice is 12, it is considered a push (BAR) – the wager neither wins nor loses. Any other number rolled becomes the Point (i.e., 4, 5,6,8,9, or 10) and the Don’t Pass wins if a 7 is rolled before the Point is repeated. If the Point is repeated before a 7 is rolled the Don’t Pass will lose. The Don’t Pass wager may not be placed or increased, but may be removed or decreased after a Point is established.

COME
This wager may be placed by the Player at any time after the Come Out Roll, but may not be removed or reduced after the Come Point is established. The rules for winning and losing are identical to the Pass Line wager. The Come bet wins if, on the roll immediately following the placement of a wager, a 7 or 11 is rolled and loses if a 2, 3, or 12 is rolled. Any other number rolled becomes an established Come Point (i.e. 4, 5,6,8,9, or 10) and must be rolled again before a 7 appears for the wager to win. If the 7 is rolled prior to the Come Point being rolled again, the come bet will lose. The Come Point is independent of the Pass Line Point.

DON’T COME
This wager may be placed any time after the Come Out Roll. The Don’t Come wager wins if, on the roll immediately following placement of wager, 2 or 3 is rolled and loses if 7 or 11 is rolled. If 12 is rolled, the wager is a push (BAR) – the wager neither wins nor loses. Any other number rolled becomes an established Don’t Come Point (i.e. 4, 5,6,8,9, or 10) which will win if 7 is rolled before the number is repeated. If the number is repeated before the 7 is rolled, the Don’t Come will lose. Don’t Come wagers may be removed or decreased at any time, but may not be replaced or increased after such removal or reduction.

ODDS
A Player may make a supplemental wager on a Pass Line, Come, Don’t Pass, or Don’t Come wager at any time after the Come Out Roll when the Point is established. Winning Odds wagers are paid at true mathematical odds. Come Odds are “Off” on the Come Out Roll unless designated otherwise by the Player. The Player is responsible for placing Pass Line Odds and keeping track of all bets. We offer 3-4-5 odds. Ask our Craps personnel for details.

PLACE BET
You can make a wager on any of the Point numbers (4, 5,6,8,9, or 10). This wager wins if the Shooter rolls your number(s) before a 7 and loses if the 7 is rolled. Place Bets pay different odds depending on the number you place. The 4 and 10 pay odds of 9 to 5, the 5 and 9 pay odds of 7 to 5 and the 6 and 8 pay odds of 7 to 6. Place Bets are “Off” on the Come Out Roll unless requested working by the Player and may be placed or removed prior to each roll of the dice.

FIELD BET
A one-roll wager that can be made on the numbers 2,3,4,9,10,11, or 12 on any roll of the dice. All numbers pay even money except the 2 or 12, which pay double. If any other number appears, the bet loses.

PROPOSITION BETS
All Proposition Bets with the exception of Hardways are one-roll bets. Hardways are “Off” on the Come Out Roll unless otherwise specified by the Player.

Any Craps (2, 3, or 12) Pays 7 to 1
Any Seven Pays 4 to 1
Eleven Pays 15 to 1
Three (craps) Pays 15 to 1
Two (Craps) Pays 30 to 1

American Roulette Playing Guide

Roulette is a casino game named after the French word meaning little wheel. In the game, players may choose to place bets on either a single number, various groupings of numbers, the colors red or black, whether the number is odd or even, or if the numbers are high (19–36) or low (1–18). The American Roulette wheel is divided into 38 spaces. Numbers 1 through 36 are colored red or black and a 0 and 00 that are green. Each player may be given non-value chips in exchange for value chips so that each player’s bets may be distinguished from each other. The non-value are different colors and are given a value when in use. They have no value except at the game they are given. Play begins when the players place their bets on the numbered layout. The dealer spins the ball in the opposite direction that the wheel is spinning. A few revolutions before the ball drops the dealer will announce: “no more bets.” The dealer will mark the number in which the ball has landed and pay all winning bets accordingly.

Pai Gow Poker Playing guide

Pai Gow Poker is a card variation of the Chinese game Pai Gow Tiles. It was invented in 1985 by Sam Torosian, owner of the Bell Card Club in southern California. While it is a game of skill, it is not difficult to learn the proper strategy and enjoy the game. Players play mostly against the house and because of its slow pace it is a fun and social game.

• Pai gow Poker is played with a single 52 card deck and a joker.
• The joker is wild in that it may be used as an ace, to complete a straight, flush, straight flush, or royal flush.
• After the players have made their bets, the dealer will deal seven cards to each spot regardless of whether there is a bet in the betting area. The first spot dealt to is determined by a random number generator.
• The players will separate their seven cards into a five-card high hand, and two-card low hand. The high hand must be of higher poker value than the low hand.
• The five-card hand is ranked according to conventional poker rules. The only poker hand in the two-card hand is a pair or no pair, after which the individual cards determine the value.
• Standard poker ranking rules are followed with one exception the A2345 straight (known as “the wheel”) is considered the second highest straight or straight flush.
• After the players have set their hand, the dealer will turn over house cards and divide the hand in the same manner, according to specified rules known as the “house way.”
• The two high hands will be compared and the two low hands will be compared. The hand with the higher poker value wins. If the event of a tie (copy hand), for example both two-card hands are ace/king, then the tie goes to the “banker.”
• If the player wins both comparisons, then the player will win even money on the bet, minus a 5% commission. If the player wins one and loses one, then the bet will push. If the player loses or ties both, then the player will lose the wager.
• Pai Gow Poker also gives the opportunity for a player to bank. Banking allows a player to “bank” against the house and other players. “Banking” players also win all copy hands.

FORTUNE BONUS SIDE BET
Players can make a Fortune Bonus side bet that wins regardless of the outcome against the house/banker and wins an amount according to a pay table. It is paid based on the value of the seven cards and it doesn’t matter how the player sets the hand. In addition, if a player has a four of a kind or better every other player making a $5 or more bet on the Fortune Bonus bet will get an “Envy Bonus” in amount based upon the pay table.

Mini/Midi Baccarat Playing Guide

Mini / Midi Baccarat is surprisingly one of the easiest casino games to play despite its reputation as an elite game.
• Guests may bet on either the player or the banker. Each side is initially dealt two cards.
• The side whose cards add up closest to nine wins.
• Tens and Face cards have a zero value. When the card total for a side equals ten, the value for this side is zero. When the card total for a side exceeds ten, the remaining total is the value for this side. (ex. 10,6 = 6)
• Mini-Baccarat also includes an optional tie wager which pays 8 to 1 and a Dragon Bonus side bet that pays out odds according to the point spread between the player and bankers hand.
• After all customers have made their bets, the dealer draws four cards from the shoe. The first and third cards are the Player Hand and the second and fourth cards are the Banker Hand. If the point count total of either hand is 8 or 9 on the first two cards, the game is over and no more cards will be drawn. If not, the Player Hand will draw a third card if that hand totals 0 through 5. The value of the third card drawn will determine if the Banker Hand receives a third card. The Player Hand stands on 6 or 7 and the Banker Hand stands on 7, 8 or 9 or whenever the rules to the game dictate.
• No more than one additional card will be drawn to each hand. The hand closest to 9 wins. If both the Banker and Player Hand result in identical totals the hand will push (tie) and any player who has wagered on the Tie wins at odds of 8 to 1.
• In Mini-Baccarat, players may not touch, handle, remove or alter any cards used in the play of Mini-Baccarat.
• In Midi-baccarat, players may touch the cards. All other rules are the same.
• Wagers must be made in increments of $ 5. When wagering only the tie or the dragon Bonus, the wager must meet the table minimum.
• A 5% commission is charged on all winning banker hands.

Three Card Poker Playing guide

THREE CARD POKER is a popular poker derivative that is fun and easy to learn.

HOW TO PLAY

Before the first card is dealt, each player must place an ante wager and may place an optional pair plus and six card bonus wager*. The ante wager is a wager against the dealer. The pair plus and six card bonus wagers are wagers against a posted payout table. All ante, pair plus and six card bonus wagers must be placed prior to the dealer announcing “no more bets”.

Each player and the dealer receive three cards face down. Players then look at their cards and decide whether to fold (forfeit their ante wager), or continue playing by placing a play wager which must be equal in amount to the ante wager.

The dealer must qualify with a queen high or better. If the dealer does not have at least a queen high, the ante wager wins 1 to 1 and the play wager is returned. If the dealer qualifies with queen high or better, and if the player’s hand beats the dealer’s hand, the play wager wins 1 to 1 and the ante wager pays 1 to 1. In the event of a tie, the hand is declared a push and the ante and the play wager are returned. The Pair Plus bet will win or lose in accordance with the posted payout table.

HOW TO PLAY

To begin, players make an Ante bet to receive their first two cards. The dealer will place three community cards face down in the middle of the layout. Once they receive their cards, players may either fold or make the 3rd Street bet of one to three times their Ante. The dealer will then reveal the first community card, and players may either fold or make the 4th Street bet of one to three times their Ante. The dealer will then reveal the second community card, and players can either fold or stay in the game by making the 5th Street bet from one to three times their Ante. After the dealer turns over the final community card, he resolves all bets left in action. Players win if their five-card hand contains a pair of Jacks or better. If a player folds, they forfeit all of their bets that are still left in action.
