BlackJack

Short Description

In the Blackjack game you are competing against a dealer (the house) along with other players (not all casinos support multi-player blackjack!). You may always choose to play with others, or just you and the dealer.
The players and the dealer are each dealt two cards with the goal of reaching 21 without going over. The player may draw as many cards as he/she wants until reaching 21. If the player draws a card that puts him/her over 21 (which is called a "bust"), he/she loses the hand. A winning hand adds up to more than the dealer's hand without "busting".

 

Rules

Before the dealer deals the cards, the players place their bets by double clicking on either the $1 chip, $5 chip, $10 chip or the $50 chip to reach the desired bet. After deciding on the desired bet the player must click the "Continue" button to proceed with the hand. The round begins after all participants have done exactly the same. 
Once the deal begins the bets may not be changed. During the course of the hand players may add to their bets through double downs, splits, and insurance. After the cards are dealt, the dealer will ask each player, what action he/she wishes to take. For example, if it is possible to split two cards a button will appear to allow the player to split the cards. The player simply clicks on the "Split" button to facilitate splitting. 
Each player receives two cards face up and the dealer receives one card face up. The player may request as many cards until he/she busts out. If a player is dealt Black Jack, which is a 10 or face card along with an Ace, he/she immediately gets paid 1.5 times the placed bet unless the dealer also has Blackjack in which case it is a "push" (you neither win nor lose your bet). 
After all the players' bets are completed, the dealer completes his hand. If the dealer has sixteen or less, he must draw a card (hit), until he reaches seventeen or more. If the dealer's card total exceeds 21 (bust), he must pay all players who are still in the game.

"Double Down": A player may select the Double Down option after being dealt two cards. The Double Down option automatically doubles the bet and automatically deals one card fase up. The player cannot draw any additional cards beyond the required one (which is automatically dealt). The player may double down on any first dealt two cards or after splitting a pair.

"Split": If the player is dealt two cards of the same denomination, he/she may split the cards into two hands and each separately. The split option automatically places additional bet equal to  the original wager. Each is played independently, and the player may take as many hits as desired on each hand. In the case of split Aces, a player's blackjack is not possible and is considered as a regular 21. In this case, a dealer's blackjack wins, and a dealer's 21 becomes a "Push".

"Insurance": If the dealer shows an Ace, the player has the option of making an "Insurance Bet". This equals half the original bet, and ensures that the player will not lose his/her wager should the dealer be concealing a 10 or face card under his Ace. If in fact the dealer's down card is equal to 10, the player wins the Insurance bet at odds of 2-1. If the dealer's down card has a value of less than 10, the player loses the Insurance Bet and continues normally with the hand.

"Push": A Push refers to when the dealer and the player have the same count in their hands. In this event the play is a draw, and no one wins or loses.

Notes: 
Should a player fail to place a bet within the set default time, the hand will continue without his/her participation. 
Should a player fail to click the "continue" button within the set default time, he/she will automatically be dealt two cards and the hand will continue. 
In case of failure to click the "continue" button due to disconnection, the disconnection rules shall apply.

Roulette

 

Short Description
If the casino offers multi-player roulette you may choose between a public and a private table.  On a public table there are up to three players simultaneously. On a private table you may choose to play alone or with other players of your choice! All players wishing to play at the same table must enter the same "group name" in the "group table" field. 
In the Roulette game the player places a bet on a number, color, odds or a group of numbers on the Roulette table. The Roulette ball is spun, and winnings are determined by the slot on the Roulette wheel where the ball makes a final stop. The amount of the payoff depends on how the bet was placed. 
The Roulette table is marked with the numbers "0" and "1-36". The numbers are alternately colored red and black with "0" colored green. The player begins by clicking and dragging chips to the desired areas on the table. Once the "no more bets" announcement has been activated the wheel is spun and when the ball falls on a number winnings are automatically added to your bankroll .

Baccarat

Short Description
The objective is to wager on the hand closest to a total of 9. You may wager on either the Banker hand or the Player hand, or on a Tie bet .

Baccarat rules
Betting options: there are three options a player may wager on:
Player hand, Banker hand or Tie bet. 
Card values:
the Player and Banker are dealt two cards each. All tens and picture cards equal zero. The Ace's equals to 1. All other cards count as their face value. If the value of cards exceed 9, then the hand value is adjusted by subtracting 10 from the total. Example: 

9+7=16

Hand counts 6

5+5+5=15 

Hand counts 5

10+9=19 

Hand is a "natural" 9

King+Ace+5 

Hand counts 6

When the Player and Banker hands are the same total, the hand is a Tie. 
Third Card Draw:
a third additional card may be dealt automatically, according to the third card rules. No hand will receive more than three cards. 
Third Card Rules:

  • "Natural" - If either Player hand or Banker hand totals 8-9, the hand is called "Natural". In this case, both the Player and the Banker must stand.

  • If the Player hand total is -
    0-5  Player hand must draw
    6-7  Player hand must stand

  • If the Player hand stands on two cards then two card Banker hand totaling 3,4,5 must draw and 6 must stand.

  • After the Player hand is dealt a third card, Banker hand receives a third card according to the following rules: if the Banker hand is -
    0-2  Banker hand must draw
    3-6  Third card to Player hand determines draw or stand
    7     Baker hand must stand

  • Winning Tie bet wagers are paid at 8 to 1.
    Example: if you bet $5 on the Tie hand, and Banker and Player have the same hand count, you will get your $5 back plus another $40.

Craps

Short Description
The first roll of the dice in a craps round is called the "come out roll". The basic opening bet in craps, which is placed just before the come out roll, is called the "pass line bet." Pass line bets are instant winners when the shooter's come out roll is 7 or 11, and lose when the come out roll is 2 (snake eyes), 3 (cross eyes), or 12 (box cars). If 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 are rolled on the come out roll, that number becomes "the point". The puck labeled "ON" shows that the point has been established, and is located on the craps table over the box for the number rolled as the point: "4, 5, six, 8, nine, or 10".
To end a round of craps and resolve pass line bets, the shooter must roll either the point or 7 after the come out roll. There's always a possibility that a craps game can continue all night if the shooter fails to roll the point or 7. Pass line bets can't win until the point is rolled, and can't lose until 7 is rolled. Because unresolved pass line bets may not be removed, players must wait for a roll of the point or 7 to determine the outcome of their pass line bets.

The Different Bets
Before the dice are rolled, bets can be placed in various fields of the craps table. First, using your left mouse button, click on the value of the chip you wish to wager. Next, place the chip in the desired betting area on the craps table by clicking in the area using your left mouse button again. Should you wish to alter or remove a bet, click on your wagered chips with your right mouse button. Please note that some bets may not be removed. Once you have finish placing your bets, click on the "ROLL" button to roll the dice.

Pass Line Bets  
A pass line bet is placed on the field labeled "PASS LINE" on the craps table before the come out roll (i.e. the first roll of the dice in a new craps round). A wager on the pass line wins if the come out roll is 7 or 11, and loses if 2, 3 or 12 is rolled. If 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 are rolled, that number becomes "the point." To win a pass line bet, the shooter must roll the point again before rolling a 7. If the shooter rolls a 7 before rolling the point again, your pass line bet loses. A winning pass line bet pays even money (1 to 1). Once the point has been established, unresolved pass line bets may not be removed or reduced. They must be resolved by a roll of the point or 7.

Don't Pass Line Bets

A don't pass line bet is essentially the reverse of a pass line bet, and is placed on the craps table in the "DON'T PASS BAR" before the come out roll. If the shooter rolls 2 or 3 on the come out roll, a don't pass line bet wins. However, if the come out roll is 7 or 11, don't pass line bets lose. If the come out roll is 12, a don't pass line bet is returned to the player in a push. If the come out roll is 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10, that number becomes the point. Once the point has been established, don't pass line bets win if the shooter rolls a 7 before rolling the point again. If the shooter rolls the point again before rolling a 7, don't pass line bets lose. A winning don't pass line bet pays even money (1 to 1). Unlike pass line bets, unresolved don't pass line bets may be removed or reduced. To remove this bet click the right mouse button. If you have placed an odds bet as well, a single right button click will remove the odds bet, and an additional click will remove the don't pass line bet.

 

Come Bets

A come bet is placed in the "COME" bar on the craps table before any roll of the dice, once the point has been established by the come out roll. The rules for come bets are essentially the same as pass line bets. Come bets win if the shooter's next roll is 7 or 11, and lose if the roll is 2, 3, or 12. If the shooter rolls 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10, that number becomes "the come point," and the dealer will move the come bet from the "COME" bar on the craps table to the box corresponding to the come point: "4, 5, six, 8, nine, or 10". If the shooter rolls the come point again before rolling a 7, the come bet pays even money. The come bet will stay in place until the come point or a 7 is rolled. Similarly to the pass line bet, unresolved come bets may not be removed or reduced. They must be resolved by a roll of the come point or 7.

 

Don't Come Bets

A don't come bet is essentially the opposite of a come bet, which is placed after the come out roll in the "DON'T COME" bar on the craps table. Don't come bets win when the shooter's next roll is 2 or 3, and lose if the roll is 7 or 11. If the shooter rolls a 12, the bet will be returned to the player in a push. If the roll is 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10, that number becomes "the come point," and the dealer will move the don't come bet from the "Don't Come Bar" to the left corner of the narrow, uppermost bar over the box corresponding to the come point: "4, 5, six, 8, nine, or 10". After the come point is established, don't come bets win even money if 7 is rolled and lose if the come point is rolled. Don't come bets will stay in place until the come point or a 7 is rolled. However, unresolved don't come bets may be removed.

 

Odds Bets

An "odds" bet is a "back up" bet on an original pass line bet, don't pass line bet, come bet, or don't come bet. The maximum odds bet is 3 times your original bet.

 

Pass Line Odds Bets

After the point has been established, a pass line odds bet is placed by clicking the left mouse button on the craps table outside the "PASS LINE" bar, under your original pass line bet. A winning pass line odds bet pays true odds: 2 to 1 on a roll of 4 or 10, 3 to 2 on a roll of 5 or 9, and 6 to 5 on a roll of 6 or 8. Unlike the original pass line bet, an unresolved pass line odds bet may be removed.

 

Don't Pass Line Odds Bets

Once the point has been established, a don't pass line odds bet is placed by clicking your left mouse button anywhere on the "DON'T PASS BAR" area. A winning don't pass line odds bet pays true odds: 1 to 2 on a roll of 4 or 10, 2 to 3 on a roll of 5 or 9, and 5 to 6 on a roll of 6 or 8. An unresolved don't pass line odds bet may be removed. Clicking the right mouse button will remove the bet.

 

Come Odds Bets

Once the come point has been established, a come odds bet is placed by clicking your left mouse button directly under your come bet within the box that corresponds to the come point: "4, 5, six, 8, nine, or 10". A winning come odds bet pays true odds: 2 to 1 on a roll of 4 or 10, 3 to 2 on a roll of 5 or 9, and 6 to 5 on a roll of 6 or 8. Unlike the original come bet, an unresolved come odds bet may be removed.

 

Don't Come Odds Bets

Once the come point has been established, an odds bet is placed on your don't come bet by clicking in the space directly under your don't come bet within the narrow, uppermost bar. This bar is above the box that corresponds to the come point: "4, 5, six, 8, nine, or 10". A winning don't come odds bet pays true odds: 1 to 2 on a roll of 4 or 10, 2 to 3 on a roll of 5 or 9, and 5 to 6 on a roll of 6 or 8. An unresolved don't come odds bet may be removed.

 

Field Bets

A field bet is a bet that the next roll of the dice will be 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, or 12. It is placed in the "FIELD" bar on the craps table before any roll of the dice. If the next roll is 3, 4, 9, 10 or 11, the field bet wins even money. If 2 is rolled, the field bet wins 2 to 1. If 12 is rolled, the field bet wins 3 to 1. If 5, 6, 7, or 8 is rolled, the field bet is lost.

 

Big 6 and Big 8 Bets

A big 6 bet is a bet that 6 will be rolled before 7. Equally, a big 8 bet is a bet that 8 will be rolled before 7. A big 6 or a big 8 bet is placed in either the "6" or "8" box which is located in the left corner of the craps table. A big 6 or big 8 bet wins even money if the shooter rolls a 6 or 8 before rolling 7. Unresolved Big 6 and big 8 bets may be removed.

 

Place Bets

There are two types of place bets:

A place win bet is a bet that either 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 will be rolled before a 7. A place win bet is placed in the narrow, unlabeled bar located just under the box with the corresponding number on the craps table: "4, 5, six, 8, nine, or 10". Winning place win bets are paid according to the following ratios: 7 to 6 on numbers 6 and 8, 7 to 5 on numbers 5 and 9, and 9 to 5 on numbers 4 and 10.

A place lose bet is a bet that 7 will be rolled before either 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10. A place lose bet is placed in the right-hand side of the narrow, unlabeled bar located just above the box with the corresponding number on the craps table: "4, 5, six, 8, nine, or 10". Winning place lose bets are paid according to the following ratios: 4 to 5 on numbers 6 and 8, 5 to 8 on numbers 5 and 9, and 5 to 11 on numbers 4 and 10.

 

Buy Bets

A buy bet is a bet that either 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 will be rolled before 7. A buy bet is placed in the box (labeled "BUY") corresponding to the number on the craps table: "4, 5, six, 8, nine, or 10". A vigorish (vig.) of 5% is charged on your profit from this bet. Buy bet winnings are then paid at true odds: 6 to 5 on numbers 6 and 8, 3 to 2 on numbers 5 and 9, and 2 to 1 on numbers 4 and 10.

 

Lay Bets

A lay bet is essentially the reverse of a buy bet. A lay bet is a bet that 7 will be rolled before 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10. The lay bet is placed in the top bar (labeled "LAY") above the box corresponding to the number on the craps table: "4, 5, six, 8, nine, or 10". A vigorish (vig.) of 5% is charged on your profit from this bet. Lay bet winnings are then paid at true odds: 5 to 6 on numbers 6 and 8, 2 to 3 on numbers 5 and 9, and 1 to 2 on numbers 4 and 10. Unresolved lay bets may be removed.

 

Any 7 Bets

An "any 7" bet is a bet that the next roll of the dice will be a 7. It is placed on any roll of the dice in the "SEVEN" field on the craps table. If 7 is rolled, you win 4 times your bet.

 

Any Craps Bets

An "any craps" bet is a bet that the next roll of the dice will be 2, 3, or 12. It is placed on any roll of the dice in the "ANY CRAPS" field on the craps table. If 2, 3, or 12 is rolled, you win 7 times your bet.

 

Horn Bets

A horn bet is a bet that the next roll of the dice will be either 2, 3, 11, or 12. It is placed on any roll of the dice in the box on the craps table containing the two illustrated dice that add up to either 2, 3, 11, or 12. A winning horn bet pays 15 to 1 on numbers 3 and 11 and 30 to 1 on numbers 2 and 12.

 

Hardway Bets

A hardway bet is a bet that the shooter will roll either a 4, 6, 8, or 10 as doubles (2+2, 3+3, 4+4, or 5+5) before rolling a 7. The hardway bet is placed in the box on the craps table containing the two illustrated dice corresponding to the number. Rolling a number by doubles is said to be rolling the number "the hard way." For example, a roll of 4+4 is a called a "hard 8," while a roll of 5+3 or 6+2 is called an "easy 8." A winning hardway bet pays 7 to 1 on numbers 4 and 10 and 9 to 1 on numbers 6 and 8. If you roll an "easy" before rolling a "hard" you lose your bet. Unresolved hardway bets may be removed.
