Baccarat

Introduction to Baccarat

In Baccarat the Player is competing against the Banker to guess whose card value will be closer to 9. There’s also an option for a tie that you can bet on. An 8-deck shoe is used in the game. Of course, the decks are completely shuffled prior to the start of each round.

To get the baccarat value of your hand is easy. If your hands add up to 10 or more points, then subtract 10 from the total and that’s your baccarat point value. In this game, suits don’t mean anything.

Example:

So if you have a 9 and a 5, your cards add up to 14 but your Baccarat value is 4.
If you have a 4 and a 6, your cards add up to 10 and your Baccarat value is 0.

 

The Rules of Baccarat

To play the game, you start by placing your bet. You can bet on the Banker, the Player, a Tie, or any combination of the three. Then the dealer will then deal two face-up cards to themselves and the player. Sometimes, they will have to deal a third card. Either way, whoever’s hand is nearer a value of 9, wins.

The first card is dealt to the player, the next card goes to the banker, then the following card goes to the player, than lastly to the banker.

A “natural” occurs when either the banker or player gets a total of 8 or 9 after the first round of cards. If this happens then no more cards are dealt. If the player and banker have the sale total, then the result’s a tie and whoever bet on a tie wins money.

If there’s no natural, then the game keeps going:
If the player has between a 0 and 5, they can choose to draw another card. If the player has between a 6 and 9, then they will stand and not draw another card.
If the banker has between a 0 and 2, they’ll take another card. If they have a 7 through 9, they cannot draw another card. If the banker has between a 3 and 6, the following chart is used:

 Banker’s Total:

Draws when Player's Third Card is:

Stands when Player's Third Card is:

3

1-2-3-4-5-6-7-9-0

1-2-3-8-9-0

6 (Stands if Player does not draw a third card)

6-7

1-2-3-4-5-8-9-0

 

Draws means a third card is given
Stands mean no third card is given

 

Wager Payout for Successful Bets

The payout varies depending on the result of the game.
Bets on the player have a payout of 1:1 the original bet.
Bets on the banker have a payout of 1:1 the original bet minus 5% as a house commission (since the banker won).
Bets on a tie have a payout of 9:1 the original bet. Remember that a tie is when both the banker and the player have the same value hand. When there’s a tie, all of the wagers placed on the player and banker are given back.

 

 

Blackjack

Quick Overview of Blackjack

Playing Blackjack with multiple hands is done with two deck of 52 cards. They are shuffled after every hand that’s dealt. You can play three hands at once in multi-hand Blackjack.

Blackjack is played between a player and a dealer. The winner is whoever has the most points in their hand without going over a value of 21. If you go over 21, you lose. If the dealer goes over 21 and you stay at or under 21, you win.
Getting exactly 21 is called a “Blackjack”.

Blackjack: How the Game Works

First, place your bet by clicking the chip value you’d like to wager. Clicking the center circle on the table will place your wager. Keep clicking if you’d like to place more money. Your wager will increase at a rate of one chip per left-click.

If you want to reduce your wager instead, you can right-click the betting circle. Again, the wager will decrease at a rate of one chip per right-click.

To reduce or remove a wager, right-click on the betting circle. The wager will decrease one chip at a time.

Example: Click the 50 chip, then click the center circle. Left clicking once will bet 50 chips, left clicking three times will bet 150 chips. Right clicking once will remove 50 chips, and right clicking twice will remove 100 chips.

After you’ve put your wager in the bet circle, hit the Deal button. Now the dealer will start dealing cards. They will deal you one face-up card, themselves one face-up card, then they’ll deal you another face-up card before finally dealing themselves a face-down card.

Now your turn starts. You can do more than option or do one option multiple times.

The options you have are:
Hit – You can click the Hit button if you want to be dealt another card.

Stand – Clicking the stand button signals that you don’t want any more cards. At this point, the dealer will play their hand until the round is over.

Split – Click the Split button if you want to split your hand into two separate hands. You will then be dealt a face-up card for each new hand. You can split up to 3 times a game which means you’d be playing 4 hands. Aces can only get split one time.

Double Down – You can click the Double button if you want to put down another bet that’s equal to your original bet. You will then get only one card and your turn will be over.

Take Insurance – You’re allowed to click the Insurance button if you want to bet one half of your original bet that the dealer has a Blackjack. This is only a possibility when they are showing an Ace as their face-up card. This is a way to minimize your losses since the dealer automatically wins if they have Blackjack.

 

Rules for Playing Blackjack

If the dealer is showing an Ace or a card with a value of 10, they’ll check for a Blackjack. If they have one, they’ll reveal their hand and the game is over. A dealer’s Blackjack beats any hand the player can get.

“Value” refers to the associated points for each card.

Face cards have a value of 10. A face card is a Jack, Queen, King – cards with a face on them.

Aces can either be worth 1 or 11 points.

Every other card’s value is the value of the card. A 7 is worth 7 points.

The maximum amount of cards you can have is 11 – as long as you don’t go over 21. After 11 cards you automatically stand then the dealer plays.

The dealer will always hit on a soft 17. If the dealer ever goes over 21, you win.

You stand automatically if your hand is a Blackjack.

If the dealer has the same hand as you, it’s a “push”, and your original bet is given back to you. You can push even if you have a Blackjack.

 

What is Splitting

Splitting can only be done if both of your cars are the same value - like two Sixes or a Jack and a King. When you split, your original wager doubles, and each hand has an equal bet on it.

You cannot get Blackjack on split Aces or Tens/Faces.

Aces can only be split once, but you can split any other pair up to 3 times a game.

Splitting Aces means you stand by default on each hand.

 

How Does Double Down Work

After getting your starting hand, you can double down. This adds an additional wager equal to your original wager, but you can only draw one more card. You can double down after splitting your hand.

What is Insurance in Blackjack
If the dealer’s face-up card in their starting hand is an ace, you can take insurance. The insurance is one half your starting bet, and it only covers your starting hand – it doesn’t cover doubles or splits.

If the dealer doesn’t have Blackjack, you lose your insurance wager and the game keeps going. However, if they do, the payout is 2:1.

If the Dealer does not have a Blackjack, the Insurance wager is removed from the table. The game continues.

If the dealer has Blackjack, the Insurance wager is paid out at odds of 2:1.

The Payout for Blackjack
Blackjack has a payout of 3:2 – this means that you get 1.5 times your original bet back plus your original bet.
Having a winning hand without having Blackjack has a payout of 1:1.

Example: You bet 1,000. Your hand value is 20 and you win. You get 2,000 back – 1,000 as your winnings plus the 1,000 you originally bet.

Example: If you bet 1,000 and your hand value is a Blackjack, you get 2,500 back – 1,500 as your winnings plus the 1,000 you originally bet.


Example: You bet 1,000, dealer shows an Ace, you take out insurance for 500, dealer flips their other card and reveals a blackjack. You get back 750. You paid 1,000 and lost your hand but you took out an insurance wager of 500 and won that. You get your 500 insurance back plus 250 for winning the insurance

Roulette

Roulette Overview

Roulette is a game in which a little ball is spun around a wheel with 37 slots that all have a unique number value. The wheel will stop, and the ball will eventually land in one of the slots.

Your goal is to guess which slot the ball is going to stop in, and if you guess right you get a payout. The payout scales up depending on which bet you place.


How Roulette is Played

Click the betting field you’d like to bet on and use the left-click to place your wager on a specific value. Your total bet will be shown on the window called “Total Bet”.

If you want to make the same wager you did on the previous round you can click the repeat button. If you choose to repeat, you can also double the bet you previously made as long as you have enough funds.

Should you try to make a bet that’s lower than the table minimum bet limit, you’ll get a message on your screen. If your bet is higher than the max limit, a reminder will pop up and you won’t be able to place that wager.

There are different wagers you can place in Roulette, and each one has a corresponding payout ratio. The 3 lines of numbers are “rows”, and the lines of 12 numbers are “columns”.
“Inside bets” are the first 5 types of bets. They’re all on numbered spaces or in between them on the line. The other 3 types of bets are “outside bets”.

Explaining the Types of Bets
Straight Up – Betting on any number including zero
Split Bet – Betting between two numbers on the line
Street Bet – Betting on three numbers in a row
Corner Bet – Betting on four numbers that share a corner
Line Bet – Betting between two rows, this covers all six numbers in both rows
Column Bet – Betting on the “2 to 1” at the very end of a column puts a wager on all 12 numbers in that column. Note: The zero is never covered by a column bet
Dozen Bet – Betting on “1st 12”, “2nd 12”, or “3rd 12” bets on the numerical values in those range: 1-12, 13-24, or 25-36  
Red/Black, 1 to 18/19 to 36, Even/Od d– This bet covers the 18 numbers identified by the box. Note: The zero is never covered in this type of bet
Special Bets – Payouts are different for these bets, but they all cover different groups or classifications of numbers on the wheel.
Neighbor Bets – Bet on the numbers in a physical area on the wheel, not on the table. Click the special bet button to see these

Poker

BASIC RULES FOR PLAYING POKER

Texas Hold’em only needs 2 players and can go up to 10 players. You play with a 52-card deck that has no jokers in it. Every player will get two face-down “hole cards”. Then the dealer deals 5 face-up cards that the whole table uses to form any combination along with their 2 cards.

The best combination wins it all.

POKER’S STAGES OF GAME
This game has 4 rounds of betting. The first is small “blinds”. The game begins with the person who is first to sit at the table. They’ll have a disk in front of them to mark them. The disk will move clockwise each hand, making the next person the new dealer.

First Stage: Poker Blinds

The two players to the left of the dealer make “blind bets” before seeing any cards. The call this process “posting the blind” which ensures there’s money on the table to win. The player immediately to the dealer’s left posts the small blind and the player two positions to the left of the dealer posts the big blind. The big blind is two times bigger than the small blind.

Second Stage: Pre-Flop

Players can only look at the communal 5 face-up cards and their own 2 face-down cards. The player who posted the big blind gets to start the betting round. They have the following options:

Call – Make a bet that’s the same as the big blind,
Raise – Make a larger bet amount
Fold – Give up their opportunity to play this round, surrendering their cards.
Sequentially each player has the ability to make the same options. When a full rotation has been made and it’s the starting player’s turn again, they can decide to not raise if no one else raised. If someone raised already, then this player can either raise, fold, or call.
Once all bets equal one another, the pot is formed and then the game goes to the “flop” round.

Third Stage: Flop

Three face-up cards are dealt which are the “flop”. They are communal cards which can be used by any of the players. The person who posted the small blind starts the betting round until all of the bets equal one another and the game proceeds to the “turn” round.

Fourth Stage: Turn

A fourth face-up community card is dealt and another round of betting starts.

Fifth Stage: River

Now the 5th and last face-up community card is dealt and players take turns on the last betting round.

Final Stage: Showdown

After every bet is equal, players show their cards. The last player in the betting rotation is the first to show their cards. If everyone checked in the previous round, the first player to the dealer’s left who is still in the game has to show their cards first.
Moving clockwise, each player will show their hand. The player may elect to not show their hand if their hand is weaker, this is called “mucking” their hand.
Whoever has the best 5-card combination wins the pot. The pot is shared amongst players if they have identical hands.

DIFFERENT GAME TYPES FOR POKER

1. Limit Poker
Limit poker agrees on the max raise ahead of time. 1/2 Limit games mean that the bet and raise are 1, and the last two rounds’ raises and bets are 2.

2. Playing with a Pot Limit
Pot Limit games determine the max amount that can be in the pot. If the amount in the pot is 50 and the first player bets 50, the second player can bet only the remainder between the current pot total and the pot limit. If the pot limit is 125 in this example, the player can only bet 25. Pot limit games don’t limit how many raises can be used during the duration, though.

3. Playing No Limit Poker
No limit games have no limit to the bets. Players can make whatever size bet they want as long as it’s larger than or equal to the big blind, which is the minimum.

Slots

How to play

Slots are one of the most fun and easiest game to play. You’ll notice most have three settings:

Bet lines – Determine how many lines you want to play. Machines will range from 3 to 30 lines, and the more lines you have the more combinations there are to get, and the higher your odds of winning.

Coin value – You’re wagering 1 coin per 1 line, so you have to select what value you want your coin to be. Then you can calculate your bet by multiplying together the coin value as well as how many bet lines you have

Bet level – This will multiple your pay-in for each game

When you’re ready, click Spin

Video Poker

Overview of Video Poker

The first thin you have to do is click how many chips you want to bet. The video poker games have 5 different betting options. Each game uses one deck of cards.
The game has two primary rounds and an ability to double up the game. It starts when you click Deal. You get 5 cards and you have to select which you want to hold on to for the next round.

You can swap all 5 cards. If you want to keep any of the cards, just click the card. You have to click Draw if you want your cards swapped for new ones.
All of the cards that you marked “hold” won’t be changed. If you win according to the payout table (see below), you will get the option to go to a bonus game which gives you the chance to double your winnings.

What is the Double Up Bonus game

If your hand qualifies for a payout, you can double up your payout. You will be asked if you want to double up every time this occurs.

If you want to double up, then you go to a game with 4 face-down cards and 1 face-up card in front of you. Pick just one card. If that card is higher than the face-up card then your payout is doubled, and you’ll be offered a double up opportunity again. Of course, if the card you picked is lower than the face-up, you lose the double up opportunity and you lose your initial payout.
