Rules of the games

Roulette

The centre of attention on the table is the roulette bowl, which is divided into 37 pockets – zero and the numbers 1 to 36. The pockets are numbered in irregular order and coloured alternately red and black. Pocket zero (0) is coloured green. The table layout features numbers 0 to 36 in regular (arithmetic) order.

The croupier starts the game of American Roulette by announcing «Place your bets, please». You place your chips on the desired number(s) marked on the layout. The croupier sets the wheel in motion and spins the ball. After the announcement «No more bets, please», no further bets may be placed. When the ball lands in one of the numbered pockets, the croupier announces the winning number and its colour. All chances associated with that number are paid out.

If the ball lands in the zero (0) pocket, the bank collects half the amount staked on all simple chances. Subject to the table minimum, you can carry on playing with the half you have left or take back your stake.

BLACK JACK

In Black Jack, the aim is to get closer to the total value of 21 than the croupier without exceeding it.

The seated players are called boxes. The standing players behind them have to accept the decisions of the boxes.

Once all the players have placed their bets, each box is dealt two cards and the croupier one card face up. In turn, each box asks for as many cards as he or she thinks are necessary to reach as close as possible to 21. A player exceeding 21 loses whatever he or she has bet and returns the cards to the croupier. Once the last box has played (i.e. by saying «stay» or «no», he or she has decided not to take another card from the croupier), the croupier takes a second card. If the total value is 16 or less, the croupier must take another card. If the value is 17 or more, no more cards can be drawn. If the croupier‘s hand exceeds 21, all players remaining in the game win automatically. Otherwise the winners are those whose card values are closer to 21 than that of the croupier. If a player‘s total equals that of the croupier, there is a «stand-off», which means that the player keeps his or her stake.

Layout

Card values

The value of the number cards 2 to 10 is equal to their face value. The face cards – King, Queen, Jack – count 10, the Ace either 1 or 11.

What you can win

You win the value of your stake (1:1) if your total is greater than that of the croupier, provided you have not exceeded 21. If you win with a Black Jack, your winnings are paid out on a 3:2 basis.

Situations 

Black Jack
A Black Jack is where you achieve the value of 21 with the first two cards,
e.g. Ace and King. A Black Jack beats all other card combinations.
Triple Seven
A triple seven consists of three sevens and immediately wins you the value of your stake (1:1), no matter what card the croupier has. The game then continues are usual with the three sevens.
Split
You can split if your first two cards have the same value. Here, you split them into two hands with separate stakes. You can even split again – up to three times in all. Each split hand requires a stake equal to that of the first hand. You can then request as many cards as you need to continue playing. Exception: in the event of split Aces, you receive only one further card. (In this event, a 21 after a split is not a Black Jack, since it was not achieved with the first two cards.) You can split three times, provided you receive a further Ace.
Double
A double is possible with all first two card combinations, even after splitting. Where soft combinations (those featuring an Ace) are doubled, the total of the hand is always the highest possible value. Example: the doubling of a «Soft 16» (Ace + 5) is valued at 21 if the next card is a 5.

Side Bets

Perfect Pairs
Side bets are bets on a particular outcome achieved by the first two cards of the box being played. There are three types of pairs offering three different winning outcomes:
Mixed Pair
A Mixed Pair is a pair consisting of one red and one black card. Example: 6 of diamonds and 6 of clubs. You win 6:1.
Coloured Pair
A Coloured Pair is a pair consisting of two cards with the same colour – either both red or both black – but different suits. Example: Ace of diamonds and Ace of hearts. You win 12:1.
Perfect Pair
A Perfect Pair is an identical pair. Example: Queen of hearts and Queen of hearts. You win 25:1.

The game of Black Jack is subject to a variety of different rules. Black Jack in Europe is played under different rules to those in the USA.

POKER

It is no coincidence that poker is considered the most exciting card game ever. Wonderfully simple to play yet fascinatingly multifaceted, success at poker requires three things: a good strategy, nerves of steel and an ability to bluff at the right time.

The right combination of cards

The game uses a standard deck of 52 cards – 13 cards in each of the suits clubs, hearts, spades and diamonds. Their values in ascending order: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King, Ace. The suit is not relevant to the value of the winnings.

Poker hands

There is a variety of poker hands; here they are in ascending order:

High Card

A no pair hand, ranked according to its highest-ranking cards. In the event of two High Cards of the same rank in a game, the outcome is decided by the second highest card in the hand, etc.

One Pair

Two cards of one rank, e.g. two Kings. If this combination occurs in more than one hand in a game, the hand with the higher value pair wins. In the event of two One Pairs of the same rank, the outcome is decided by the value of the third card, etc.

Two Pairs

Two pairs, e.g. two Queens and two eights. In the event of two Two Pairs of the same rank in a game, the outcome is decided by the higher value pair. In the event of two higher pairs of the same rank, the outcome is decided by the second pair, then the value of the fifth card.

Three of a Kind

Three cards of one rank, e.g. three Queens. In the event of more than one Three of a Kind in a game, the outcome is decided by the Three of a Kind with the highest value.

Straight

Five cards of sequential rank in at least two different suits, e.g. 8, 9, 10, Jack, Queen. In the event of more than one Straight in a game, the outcome is decided by the Straight with the highest card. If the highest cards are of the same rank, there is no winner.

Flush

All five cards are of the same suit, but not in sequence. In the event of more than one Flush in a game, the outcome is decided by the highest card in the hand, then the next highest, etc. 

Full House

Three matching cards of one rank and two matching cards of another rank, e.g. three eights and two Kings. In the event of more than one Full House in a game, the outcome is decided by the one with the higher ranking three cards. If this is the same, the hand with the higher pair wins.

Four of a Kind

Contains four cards of one rank, e.g. four Queens. In the event of more than one Four of a Kind in a game, the outcome is decided by the one with the higher ranking four cards.

Straight Flush

Five cards of sequential rank in the same suit, e.g. 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King of hearts. In the event of more than one Straight Flush in a game, the outcome is decided by the highest card in the hand.

Royal Flush

This Ace-high straight flush is the highest ranking standard poker hand. It consists of the 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace in one suit.

 

 

Texas Hold’em Poker

Due to its simple rules and quick-fire play, Texas Hold’em has become one of the most popular variants of poker around the world. Between two and ten players can take part; the nominal dealer changes from player to player after each hand, although in practice the croupier leads the game as dealer and organiser. The game allows for up to four rounds of betting, each round revealing one more of the five community cards: the game consists of combining them with your two personal cards to create a poker hand. The hand ends with the showdown, the player with the highest ranking card combination winning the pot.

Tableau


The players place their stakes behind the betting line on the table. After each betting round, the dealer places the individual stakes in the middle of the table to form the pot.

Blind Bets
Before the cards are dealt, the player to the left of the nominal dealer with the dealer button posts the «small blind», one half of the minimum bet. The «big blind», posted by the player to the left of the small blind player, is equal to the minimum bet. The other players do not contribute any preliminary bets.

Initial Deal
Each player receives two «hole cards» face down. These are dealt in a clockwise direction starting with the small blind player (left of the player holding the dealer button).

First betting round
The first betting round commences with the player to the left of the big blind player. He or she can pass («fold»), continue playing («call», i.e. place the minimum bet) or «raise». The other players do likewise in a clockwise direction. If no one has placed more than the minimum stake, the big blind player can re-open the betting round with a raise. The dealer (the croupier) now places the first three of the community cards face up on the table: the «Flop».

Second betting round
This and all subsequent betting rounds begin with the first active player to the dealer button‘s left and continue clockwise. Each of the players either passes, calls (by matching the bet) or raises. Players can «check» from this round onwards (pass on the decision without betting). Players wishing to quit slide their two hole cards face down over the line. The dealer now flips over a fourth community or «board card», also called the «Turn».

Third betting round
Starting to the left of the dealer button, the players still in the game bet again in a clockwise direction. At the end of that round, the dealer flips over the last community card, also called the «River» card («Last Card»).

Fourth betting round
Betting takes place again as before, involving the players still in the game. As before, they must decide whether to pass, call or raise.

Showdown
If at this point two or more players remain, it is time to reveal the hands. They assemble the highest ranking combination from their hole cards and the community cards. The player with the best poker hand wins the pot – note that both hole cards must be shown. Because the casino does not act as the banker in poker, the croupier holds back a fixed percentage of the pot as commission.

Pot / All In
As with other common variants of poker, the bets in Texas Hold‘em are gathered together to form the pot. A player faced with a current bet and who wishes to call but has insufficient remaining stake may bet the remainder of his stake and declare him or herself «all in». That player may now hold onto his or her cards for the remainder of the deal as if he or she had called every bet, but may not win any more money from any player above the amount of his or her bet. He or she continues to play for the main pot; meanwhile, the other players now place their fresh bets in a side pot to which the all-in player does not have access.

BACCARAT

Layout

 

The aim of the game is to achieve a 9 with a minimum of two or a maximum of three cards. Players can bet on either the PLAYER winning, the BANKER winning or a TIE between the two. If the first two cards drawn for the PLAYER or BANKER total a „natural hand“ 8 or 9, no more cards may be drawn. If the total is not 8 or 9, a further card may be drawn in accordance with the drawing rules, i.e.

  • The fifth card for the PLAYER
  • The sixth card for the BANKER

If both sides achieve the same total, those betting on a TIE win, in which event the stakes on the PLAYER and BANKER remain unchanged and can be taken back or changed. The croupier is in charge of the game and handles the stakes and winnings.

Card values

The value of the number cards 2 to 9 is equal to their face value. The 10, Jack, Queen and King count zero (0). Aces count 1. The cards for both sides are drawn face up as follows:

  • The first and third cards to PLAYER
  • The second and fourth cards to BANKER

Where the sum of the two/three cards is a double-digit number, 10 is subtracted to leave only the units. E.g:



Drawing rules


PLAYER

PLAYER has two cards with a total of:

PLAYER gets a third card, except BANKER stands on 8 or 9.

PLAYER gets no third card.

BANKER gets a third card, except PLAYER stands on 8 or 9.


BANKER gets a third card, except PLAYER'S third card is an 8.


BANKER gets a third card only if PLAYER gets 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or 7 as a third card.
