Roulette is a classic casino game where players choose to place bets on either a single number or a range of numbers, the colour red or black or whether the number is odd or even.
To determine the winning number and colour, a croupier spins a wheel in one direction and then spins a ball in the opposite direction. The ball slows and drops into one of the numbered compartments in the wheel, the winners are those whose bets are on or around the number that comes up.
Blackjack is an exciting and popular card game that is easy to learn. You buy your chips by placing cash on the table. You play against the dealer (“The House”). The object of the game is to have a better hand than the dealer at the end of each round of play without going over 21, or to be still in the game when the dealer goes over 21 (busts).
THREE CARD POKER
To play, place your bet in the ‘Ante’ box. Everyone betting receives three cards, including the dealer. After looking at your cards you have options to play or fold. If you decide to fold, you lose your Ante. If you decide to play, place your cards face down on the ‘Raise’ box with chips to the value of your Ante placed on top of the cards.
When all players have decided to play or fold, the dealer reveals his cards. The dealer will only play with a ‘qualifying’ hand of Queen High or higher. If he has a qualifying hand he then compares his hand with the players’ hands.
If you beat the dealer you receive even money on your Ante bet and Raise bet plus any Ante Bonus depending on the value of your hand. If the dealer’s hand beats yours he collects the Ante bet and the Raise bet.
Another way to play is simply to bet that your hand will be a pair or better. To play this bet, place your chips on the Pair Plus box. If you have a qualifying hand you will be paid on the Pair Plus bet even if the dealer has a better hand. You can play both bets each hand if you wish.
Punto Banco is a game of chance, the object being to bet on the hand which will come closest to a count of 9.
Your first step to getting started is to place your bet. There are three bets to choose from. The ‘bank’ which pays 19-20, the ‘player’ or ‘punto’ which pays even money, and there is a ‘tie’ or ‘egalite’ which is less common and pays 8-1.
3 Giving 8 (San Ba) Side Bet Punto Banco
3 Giving 8 (San Ba) is a Punto Banco side bet. It pays 200 to 1 if the Banker hand starts with a two-card total of three and the Player hand draws a third card of an 8.
- The 3 Giving 8 side bet wins if all of the following are true:
- The Banker hand has three points after two cards.
- The Player hand has 0 to 5 points after two cards, thus drawing a third card.
- The third card drawn to the Player hand is an 8.
- This set of conditions constitute the only situation where the Banker hand will stand on a two-card total of three points.
Texas Hold’em uses a dealer button to indicate the theoretical dealer. After each hand is complete, the button moves clockwise to the next active player. This player is referred to as “the button” and is considered to be “the dealer” for that hand.
