Card Games

 

 

 


Blackjack

The object of Blackjack is for the total of your cards to be closer to 21 than the dealer’s cards, without exceeding 21. In Blackjack, aces count as either 1 or 11, face cards as 10, and number cards as their face value.


If you receive an ace and a ten-value card as your first two cards, you have Blackjack and win one and a half times your bet (if you bet was 10, you receive 25). If the total value of your cards is closer to 21 than the dealer’s, you win as much as you had wagered (if your bet was 10, you receive 20). If the total of your cards is more than 21, you “bust” and lose your bet. If you and the dealer have the same card total (17 and up) neither of you win and your bet is returned to you in a “push”. Blackjack beats a score of 21.


Our Blackjack follows the standard “Las Vegas Strip” rules, with the following exceptions:


  • After each round, used cards are returned to the deck and the deck is shuffled.


  • The player may not split a split hand.


  • Only one card is drawn to split aces.


  • The player may double after splitting.


  • The dealer will not check for Blackjack in any case.


  • If the player doubles and the dealer's first card is of value 11 (ACE), and the dealer gets blackjack, the player loses both his bets.


  • Split


    If your first two cards have the same point value, you may split them into two separate hands by placing a second bet equal to the original bet. You then proceed to draw cards. You may draw as many cards as you like on each split hand, but if you split two aces, you receive only one additional card for each ace. If you receive an ace and a ten-value card in a split hand, it is counted as 21 and not Blackjack.


    Double


    After you are dealt two cards, and think that another card will allow you to beat the dealer’s hand, you can increase your bet by an amount up to your original bet or “double” your bet. Your wager is doubled, and you are allowed to receive one more card.


    Insurance


    Insurance is considered to be a game of its own within Blackjack. If the dealer has an Ace as his up card, you’ll be given a chance to buy insurance. When you buy insurance, you’re betting that the dealer has a blackjack. It allows you to try and protect yourself when you think that the dealer may have Blackjack. When buying insurance, you place half of your initial bet by pressing the Insurance button. If the dealer does have Blackjack, you are paid 2 to 1 on your insurance bet. If the dealer doesn’t have Blackjack, you lose your insurance bet.


    10 Card Charlie


    It is theoretically possible for the player to draw 10 cards without going bust. In this case the player’s hand automatically wins, except when the dealer has Blackjack.

     


    Baccarat

    The object of baccarat is to obtain a hand with a point total closest to 9. Aces count as one; 2 through 9 as their face value; tens and picture cards count as zero. If the value of the hand is ten points or more, subtract ten, and the remainder is the baccarat point value of the hand. For example: 7+6=13=3 and 4+6=10=0


    Place your wager on the banker’s hand and/or on the player’s hand and/or on a tie. The player and the banker are then each dealt a two-card hand. In certain cases, a third card is dealt to the player or the banker or both (Third Card Rules). Cards are dealt from a shoe that holds 6 decks of cards. The decks are shuffled each round.


    The player closest to 9, wins.


    If you bet on the player and the player wins, you are paid 2 for 1 winnings on your bet.


    If you bet on the banker and the banker wins, you are paid 2 for 1 minus 5% bank commission (vigorish).


    If both the player’s hand and the banker’s hand have equal totals, the game result is a ‘tie’. If you have placed a bet on the ‘tie’ field, your payoff is 9 for 1.

     


    Carribean Poker


  • First, click on the chips to place an ante. To remove chips from the ante, right click on the chips on the table.


  • Jackpot Side Bet:


    You also have the option to make the progressive jackpot side bet – click on the coin slit above the Ante field on card table. The blinking light above the slit turns green. It costs 1 currency unit, out of which a certain percentage goes to the progressive jackpot pool. If you get a flush or higher, you win a certain percentage of the jackpot (see the winnings table below). Current size of the jackpot is shown on the left side of the table.


  • Now click on Deal to deal the cards. You will be dealt a five-card hand, face up. No additional cards will be dealt for the duration of this game round.


  • Decide whether to stay in or fold. If you fold (click on Fold button), you will lose your ante and this game round is over for you.


  • If you stay (click on Call), you add double the amount of your ante to the bet.


  • Now the dealer’s cards are flipped over so everyone can see them. If the dealer’s hand does not include an Ace/King combination or higher, the dealer does not qualify. You win even money (1 to 1) on the ante and the additional bet is returned.


  • If the dealer’s hand includes a combination that is higher than yours, you lose both the ante and the additional bet.


    If the dealer’s hand contains an Ace/King or higher, but your hand is higher, you win even money on the ante and the additional bet pays according to the winnings table.

     


    Pai Gow Poker

    Pai Gow Poker is a combination of Poker and an ancient Chinese game Pai Gow. If you are not familiar with Pai Gow, proceed straight to the Pai Gow Rules below.


    To play the game:


    Player receives seven cards, which he/she splits into two hands – a five card hand and a two card hand. The object is to beat the dealer.


  • First, place a bet by selecting a chip and clicking on the Bet area in the middle of the table. Place multiple chips if you want. To remove a chip from the bet field, right click on it.


  • Click on Deal.


  • You receive seven cards. Leave five of them in the “Highest” hand and select two that go to the “2nd Highest” hand. To send a card to the “2nd Highest” hand, just click on it. To send it back to the “Highest” hand, click on it again. The five-card hand (or the “Highest”) must always outrank the two-card hand (or the “2nd Highest”). You can also click the House Way button to let the computer select your hands in a certain manner (see the Rules for more info).


  • Click on Done (if you did not press House Way).


  • The dealer’s cards are revealed. If both the dealer’s hands are higher than yours, you lose your bet. If one of you hands is higher and the other is lower, the round results as a push and your bet is returned. If both your hands are higher, you win even money on your bet (1 to 1) minus 5% bank commission. In case of an exact match between hands (called a copy) the tie goes to the banker.


  • Click on New Game if you want to play another round. Place a bet again as described above, or click on the Rebet button to place the same bet as in the previous round.


  • In Pai Gow Poker, the object is to divide your seven card hand into a five-card (“Highest”) and a two-card hand (“2nd Highest”). The five-card hand must always outrank the two-card hand (hence the names “Highest” and “2nd Highest”). The five-card hand is ranked as in Poker, except that an A-2-3-4-5 straight is the second highest straight. The two-card hand can be either a pair or individual cards. The highest two-card hand is a pair of aces and the lowest is a 2-3. You can divide your hand yourself, or let the computer split it, using a method called the House Way (see below).


    Pai Gow Poker is played using a standard 53 card deck, including a Joker. The joker can only be used to complete a straight, flush, or straight flush, otherwise it is treated as an ace.


    House Way


    The House Way is a set of rules that describes how the dealer arranges his hand. You can use the House Way on your own hand as well, by clicking the House Way button.


    The "front" refers to the two card hand and the "back" refers to the five card hand.


  • No pair: Place the highest card in the back and the next two highest cards in the front.


  • One pair: Place the pair in back and the next two highest cards in the front.


  • Two pair: Play two pair in back, except split in the following situations:


  • One pair is 7's or greater and no ace singleton.


  • Pair of jacks or better and 6's or better and an ace singleton.


  • Pair of aces and any other pair.


  • Three pair: Always play highest pair in front.


  • Three of a kind: Always play three of a kind in back except break up three aces.


  • Full house: Split except with pair of 2's and an ace/king can be played in front.


  • Full house with three of a kind and two pairs: Play the highest pair in front.


  • Three of a kind twice: Always play highest pair in front.


  • Straights, flushes, straight flushes, and royal flushes:


  • Always play straight or flush in the high hand except play as a two pair if one of the following:


  • Any two pair and an ace singleton.


  • Pair of jacks and pair of 6's.


  • Pair of aces and any other pair.


  • With a six or seven card straight or flush put the highest hand possible in front while maintaining the straight or flush in back.


    Play staight or flush over straight flush to improve front hand to jack or better.


    Play staight or flush over royal flush to improve front hand to king or better.


  • Four of a kind: Play according to the rank of the four of a kind:


  • 2 through 6: Always keep together.


  • 7 through 10: Split unless an ace or better can be played in front.


  • Jack through king: Split unless hand also contains a pair of 10's or higher.


  • Aces: Split unless a pair of 7's or higher can be played in front.


  • Five aces: Split unless pair of kings can be played in front.


  • After the hands have been arranged, your hands are compared to these of the dealer’s and the winner is determined:


  • If both the dealer’s hands are higher, you lose your bet.


  • If one of the dealer’s hands is higher, one lower, it is a push and your bet is returned.


  • If both your hands are higher, you win even money on your bet (1 to 1) minus 5% bank commission.


  • In case of an exact match between hands (called a copy) the tie goes to the banker.

     


     Let Them Ride

    To play the game:


  • Place three equal-sized bets. To do this, click on a chip of desired value to select it. Then move your cursor to the middle of the screen over the area currency unit, “1” or “2” and click on any of them. Every click on the area adds one chip to the bet. Select another chip if you wish to increase the bet by some other amount. Right clicking on the area removes one chip.


  • Click the Deal button.


  • You receive three cards. Two community cards are placed at the top of the screen face down. Your goal is to form as good a hand as possible with your three cards and the two community cards. You have the option to remove one of your bets, if you think your hand is weak – click the Pull Out button. If you do not want to remove a bet, click Let Them Ride.


  • Now one of the community cards is turned over. Again you have the option to pull out one of your bets. Click Pull Out or Let Them Ride.


  • Now the second community card is turned over. You receive a winning if you have a winning hand. If not, you lose your remaining bets. The winning table is on the left side of the table. Each bet remaining on the table wins according to the winning table, so in case of a winning hand the more bets you have left on the table, the better.


  • Click New Game to start a new game round, then Rebet to place the same bet as in the previous round.


  • The Side Bet:


    Let Them Ride Poker contains a 1currency unit side bet, which gives you additional winnings on some combinations. The winnings table for the side bet is on the right side of the table. Place the side bet by clicking on the “Side Bet” area before clicking on the Deal button.

     


     

    Red Dog

     

    In Red Dog, number cards count as their face value, Jack is 11, Queen is 12, King is 13 and Ace is 14. The suit is irrelevant.


    To play the game:


  • First, click on the chips to place a bet. To remove chips from the bet, right click on the chips.


  • Click the Deal button.


  • Two cards are drawn. If the cards are consecutive, it is a push (your wager is returned to you and the round is over). If the cards are equal, a third card is drawn. If it matches the first two cards, you win 11 to 1; otherwise it is a push.


  • If the two cards are neither consecutive nor equal, the spread is established. The spread is the number of card values between the two cards. For example – 2 and 4 have a spread of 1; 6 and a Queen have a spread of 5.


  • Now you have the option to raise (double) your bet or to call (continue without raising). Press Raise or Call respectively.


  • A third card is drawn. If it is between the two cards, you win according to the payout table (seen on the card table). If it matches one of the two cards or is outside the spread, you lose.


  • Click New Game if you wish to play again. Place a bet as described above, or click Rebet to place the same bet again.
