Blackjack


How to Play

Blackjack is one of the most popular casino card games in the world. It’s absorbing, challenging, exciting and easy to play. In Blackjack you play against the Dealer. To win your card total must be greater than the Dealer’s total, but not exceed 21.

How to Play

  • Each player places a bet in the betting areas marked on the layout. All Players receive two cards and the Dealer one.
  • The Players are asked in turn whether they wish to ‘draw’ another card or ‘stay’ with the total they have.
  • Once all Players have finished the Dealer draws cards to their hand.
  • The Dealer must draw a card if they have 16 or less. When the Dealer’s hand reaches a total of 17 or more they cannot draw another card.
  • All winning bets are paid even money with the exception of any Blackjacks.

Splitting

When the first two cards dealt to your hand are a pair you may split them to create two separate hands, by placing an additional stake equal to the original bet.

Perfect Pair

Perfect pairs is an exciting new feature on Blackjack giving you the option to place an extra bet that your first two cards will be either a Perfect Pair (30-1), a Coloured Pair (10-1) or a Mixed Pair (5-1).

21+3

21+3 is an optional bonus bet that introduces an element of Poker into Blackjack. It combines your first two cards with the Dealer’s first card, to make a three card Poker hand.

At the same time as you place your standard Blackjack bet, place your 21+3 wager in the betting area provided. If your first two cards combine with the Dealer’s first card to make any of the following Poker hands, your wager will be paid at 9-1.

Flush - Three unrelated cards of the same suit

Straight - Three consecutive cards of differing suits

Three of a kind - Three cards of the same denomination e.g. three sevens

Straight flush - Three consecutive cards of the same suit

If your cards do not make one of these Poker hands, your 21+3 wager will lose but your Blackjack wager remains unaffected. Play will continue once all 21+3 side bets have been settled.

Buy-In

Wait for the current round of play to end and ask the croupier to buy-in for your desired amount (Different tables have different minimum bets). Money can’t be handed directly to the croupier, so place it on the table and the croupier will exchange for chips.

Spread-Bet Roulette

Place your bets on any number of the 7 Spread Bet wager options, each option covers a different range of totals and is colour coded for easy identification -

SPREAD BET RANGE COLOUR
0/00 – 1 GREEN
2 - 9 YELLOW
10 - 25 PURPLE
26 - 45 RED
46 - 57 ORANGE
58 – 70 PINK
71 – 72 BLUE

When the dealer spins the ball the winning number display on each table will show two wheels –

The outside wheel is a representation of the roulette wheel that is on the table, with 18 black numbers, 18 red numbers, a green 0 and 00.

The inside wheel is a representation of a computer generated wheel, with exactly the same numbers as the table roulette wheel in exactly the same order, all numbers are a gold colour.

These wheels will start to spin, in opposite directions. When the ball begins to slow down the display will briefly change to show “No more spread-bets” and then change back to show both wheels which will stop and align with each other so that each number on the outside wheel corresponds to a number on the inside wheel. The centre of the wheel will cycle through each of the colours until a winning number is decided.

The display will show the winning number for the table as usual as well as the total of the winning numbers from both the outside and inside wheels.

This total will be displayed against the background colour of the corresponding spread bet.

The dealer will clear all the losing bets, leaving behind any winning bets which will then be paid at the following odds.

SPREAD BET RANGE PAYS
0/00 – 1 150-1

Punto Banco

Punto Banco is a card game similar to Baccarat.

How to Play

  • The aim of the game is to bet on the hand you believe will receive the higher total.
  • You may also bet both hands have the same total, or tie.
  • Once all bets are placed two hands (each of two cards) are dealt - one to the Punto (Player) and one to the Banco (Banker).
  • Additional cards may be drawn by the Dealer, according to the table of play.
  • After all the cards have been dealt the Dealer pays the winning bets.

Hand totals

The highest hand total in Punto Banco is 9 and the lowest is zero. Cards from Ace to 9 have their face value, Tens, Jacks, Queens and Kings count as zero. When determining the value of a hand only the right hand digit is used.

For example:
2 + 3 + 6 = 11 the hand value is 1
6 + 4 = 10 the hand value is 0
King + 7 = 7 the hand value is 7

Buy-In

Wait for the current round of play to end and ask the croupier to buy-in for your desired amount (Different tables have different minimum bets). Money can’t be handed directly to the croupier, so place it on the table and the croupier will exchange for chips.

UR Way Egalite Sidebet

Where the standard Egalite side wager pays 8 to 1 for any tied hand regardless of the score, the new ‘UR Way Egalite’ side wager allows Players to bet on one of the ten possible tied score outcomes (e.g. tied on a score of 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 etc up to 9). Different tied scores then pay different odds, according to the possibilities of their occurring. These odds range from 45 to 1 for a tied score of six or seven, up to 225 to 1 for a tied score of two.

3 giving 8

3 giving 8 pays 200 to 1
Banco has two card total of 3. Punto has two card total of 0-5 and takes third card with a value of 8.

House Edge

If Banco (Banker) wins - 1.06%
If Punto (Player) wins - 1.24%
If Egalité - 14.84%

Three Card Poker

Three Card Poker is actually two games in one:
There is the Play/Ante game where you are playing against the dealer to see who has the highest hand. There is also the Pair Plus game where you are wagering on whether or not you will be dealt a pair or better.

How to Play

  • Before any cards are dealt, you decide whether to place a bet on Ante and/or on Pair Plus.
  • The Dealer then deals three cards to each player
  • If you have placed an Ante bet and you believe your hand is high enough to beat the Dealer’s hand, then you can continue to play by placing an additional bet equal to your original Ante bet.
  • If you believe your hand will not beat the Dealer’s or you do not have a Pair, then you can fold and your bets will be collected by the Dealer.
  • Once all Players have placed a play bet or folded, the Dealer will turn their cards face up. To qualify, the Dealer must have a hand of at least Queen high. If they don’t have a Queen then all Ante, Ante bonus and winning Pair Plus bets are paid.
  • If the Dealer qualifies and your hand beats the Dealer’s, then your Ante and Play bets are paid at even money.

Ranking of hands

The ranking of hands in Three Card Poker is different from traditional Poker. In Three Card Poker a Straight beats a Flush and a Three of a Kind beats a Straight.

  • The dealer calls “No more bets” and spins the wheel. No bets will be accepted once the wheel of fortune has been spun.

Casino War

Casino War is one of the easiest games to learn, but great fun to play.

How to Play

  • Players purchase tokens from the table.
  • Bets may be placed on a box (to beat the dealer) and on the tie strip (to match the dealer). Players can place multiple bets.
  • Each box, or betting area for tie bets, will be dealt one card. The Dealer will then deal themselves one card face up.
  • If a Player has a card with a higher value than the Dealer then they will win even money. If the Dealer has a higher card value than the player then the player will lose their stake.
  • If the Dealer and the Player have cards of the same value then one of the following options must happen:

A. The Player must ‘Go to War’ and place an additional bet equal to their original wager.
B. The Player must ‘Surrender’ and lose half the value of their original wager.

If the Player opt to ‘Go to War’ they will be dealt a second card face up, then the Dealer will deal themselves a second card face up.
If the Player’s second card is of a higher or equal value to the Dealer’s second card they will win even money on the ‘Go to War’ wager only.
If it is of a lower value they will lose both the ‘Go to War’ wager and the original wager.

Poker

The aim of the game is for one Player, using their best five card poker hand, to beat the other Players and win the pot. This is done by either having the highest ranking hand or by all the other Players folding.

How to Play Texas Hold'em

Two hole cards are dealt to each Player, followed by a round of betting. Three community cards are dealt face up (the flop) followed by another round of betting. Another card (the turn) is dealt, then the final community card (the river), each with a round of betting. The winning Player is the one with the best five card hand formed from any combination of their hole cards and community cards.

How to Play Omaha

Each Player receives between four and six hole cards. The community cards are dealt as in Texas Hold’em, and the betting round follows the same process. The winning hand in Omaha is the best five card hand formed by two of the Player’s hole cards and three of the community cards. Other variations may be available, with rules posted in the poker room.
