Although originally an Italian game, Baccarat became famous in France in the 15th century. This is considered one of the most glamorous games in a casino.
The player's objective in Baccarat is to correctly guess which of three possible propositions will win the round: Bank, Player, or Tie.
PLAYER and BANKER receive a 3rd card or STAND on their first two cards as per the rules below unless one of them has a NATURAL.
The Tie hand is paid at eight to one. Thus a winning tie bet of $10 will return $80. If you bet on either Bank or Player and the Tie wins, you do not lose your bet. It is a push.
Edge in favor of the casino is as follows depending on where the bet is placed:
The Tie bet has a 14.1 percent edge in favor of the casino. The house gets a 1.36 percent edge on the Player bet and a 1.17 percent edge on the Bank bet when the bank charges a five percent commission.
A predominant aspect of the baccarat games played at the local casino is the scorecard. Casinos encourage this behavior simply because they know it has no bearing on the outcome of the game. One hand has no bearing on the next, and is never influenced by the preceding hands.
If you were betting on the flip of a coin, and it landed heads up 9 times in a row. The chance of the coin landing tails up on the 10th flip is exactly 50%, just as it was the first nine times. Any Baccarat strategy that makes you change your bets based on previous hands is useless and should be completely disregarded.
Besides the regular Blackjack games that you are used to we also offer these exciting variations of this popular game:
NOTICE:These are default game rules. Depending on casino house rules where you play at, some of these might differ.
The objective of the game is obtaining a hand value that is closest to 21 and higher than the dealer's hand without going over. Your hand or hands, depending at which table you play in the casino, will play against the total of the dealer's hand.
Initially, both the dealer and the player are dealt two cards per hand. Player cards are dealt face up and one dealer card is dealt face up. A Blackjack is when the sum of the first two totals 21. The combination can be any Ace with any card with a value of 10.
The shoe of cards can consist of any number of decks from 1 to 8, this depends of the rules of the house. The number of decks used at a table affect the odds of house. The more decks the better the odds are for the house. The casino lobby indicates the number of decks used in each game.
In Blackjack, the cards are valued as follows: An Ace can count as either 1 or 11. Cards from 2 through 9 keep their face value. The 10, Jack, Queen, and King are all valued at 10.
The plays that the Dealer makes are defined by a set of table rules that determine his actions. Usually these rules are indicated on the blackjack table. The main guidelines for the Dealer hand are:
After the cards are dealt the player must play his/her hand first. The player can make several choices once his two initial cards are dealt. The player's action would depend on the strategy used by the player to the two initial cards. Some tables will have rules that other tables may not have so it is a good idea for the player to find out which tables in the casino are the ones that suit his or her gambling style. These options are indicated in the casino lobby when choosing a game. The Players hand is over when: A Blackjack comes up, Player chooses to stand or Player busts.
These are the choices a player has after being deal the first two cards:
This is when the Player's or Dealer's hand total goes over 21. A Busted hand is automatically a loser.
Push is when the Player's hand equals the total of the Dealer's hand. This is tie and the player receives his/her bet amount back.
Min bet: displays the minimum bet amount required to play a hand. Max bet: displays the maximum bet amount allowed at the table. This is shown in the top right hand corner of the table.
Some Blackjack tables will allow a player to play multiple hands at the same time. A player can play either one, two or three hands simultaneously. The casino lobby indicates which tables will allow a player play multiple hands.
In the event the player looses internet connectivity on or closes his/her browser window in the middle of a game, the game in progress will be stored. Once back in the casino the pending game may be restored and finished by the player.
The objective of the game is to bet on the outcome of the dice, that you as the shooter roll. The payouts outs are made based on the sum of the numbers of the dice once the roll stops. Bets can be based on these two main things:
To begin the game, you as the shooter make an initial come out roll, here you must make a Pass Line or a Don't Pass Bar bet prior to rolling the dice. Depending on your choice for this initial bet, you will aim to roll specific numbers in order to win.
Craps is considered any dice rolled totaling 2, 3 or 12
If you throw a 7 or an 11 on the first roll it is an automatic win, called a Natural. If you throw craps 2, 3 or 12 it is an automatic loss. However if you throw anything else besides 7, 11 or craps then you make a Point. The dealer will mark the point number by placing a puck with its white face up on top of it. This means you are now betting for the number you just rolled (The Pass) to come up again before a 7 is rolled. If it does, you win.
After the point has been established, you can increase your line bet by taking odds. This means you are now betting additional money that the number you just rolled (The Point) will come up again before a 7 is rolled. If it does, you win. This bet is placed directly behind the original line bet. Each point pays different odds. Unlike the original pass line bet, an unresolved pass line odds bet may be removed.
You are betting the opposite of Pass Line. If you throw a 7 or an 11 on the first roll it's an automatic loss, and you win if the dice sum 3 or 12. A 2 is called a Stand Off or Tie and you neither win nor lose*. However if you roll anything else besides 7, 11 or "Craps" then you make a "Point". If this happens, then it's the exact opposite of Pass Line. This means you are now betting to win that you will throw a 7 before the number you just rolled (The "Point").
*Depending on house rules, some casinos use the 12 as the stand off or Tie number.
After the point has been established you can increase your line bet by taking odds. Which means you are now betting additional money that you will throw a 7 before the number you just rolled (The "Point") comes up. A don't pass line odds bet is placed on the right side of your original bet in the Don't Pass Bar. A winning Don't Pass Line odds bet pays true odds. An unresolved don't pass line odds bet may be removed.
It is an even money bet (pays 1:1). The only real difference between the Pass Line and the Come Bet is that you make a come bet after the point has been determined on the pass line. After you make a come bet, the first roll of the dice will establish the come point. If a 7 or 11 rolls, you are an automatic winner. But if you roll 2, 3, or 12 on the first roll you lose.
Once the come point has been established, you can increase your line bet by taking odds. This means that you are now betting to win that the number you just rolled will Come up again before a 7 is rolled. A come odds bet is placed 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. Unlike the original come bet, an unresolved come odds bet may be removed.
Don't Come bets are basically the same as the Don't Pass Bar bets, but are made after you make a wager on a Don't Pass Bar, and a Point is rolled. You can then back up your bet by laying (betting against the shooter) the odds on the Point.
You are now betting additional money that you will roll a 7 before the "Point" number. If it does, you win. An odds bet is placed in the tiny space directly under your Don't Come bet within the narrow, uppermost bar over 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. An unresolved don't come odds bet may be removed.
Place bets are made on the numbers 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10 and have nothing to do with the Point number. Place bets are turned off when they have an OFF marker on top. If a 7 is rolled before your Place number you lose. If your Place number is rolled before a 7 you win.
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 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 these default ratios:
Buy bets are made on the numbers 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10 similar to Place bets but with different (true) odds. Again you are betting that the shooter will roll your number before he/she rolls a 7. A Buy bet is determined in the following manner.
If a 7 is rolled before your Buy number you lose. If your Buy number is rolled before a 7 you win. On Buy bets the casino charges a five percent service charge on the value of your bet in multiples of $1 (a $10 bet will cost you $11).
Because of these payouts you must pay attention to wager the correct amounts in order to receive the correct payout. The casino rounds down on uneven payouts.
Lay bets are the opposite of Buy bets. You are betting the shooter will roll a 7 before your Lay number of 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10. If your Lay number is rolled before a 7 you lose. If a 7 is rolled before your Lay number you win.
Because of the nature of these payouts you need to pay special attention to wager the correct amounts in order to receive the correct payout. The casino rounds down on uneven payouts. Same as with Buy bets the casino charges a five percent service charge. However, now the charge is based on your potential winnings in multiples of $1 (a $40 bet on the 4 would pay $20, 5% of $20 is $1, so it will cost you $41).
Big Six or Big Eight bets pay even money if you win. If a 7 is rolled before a 6 or an 8 you lose. If a 6 or an 8 is rolled before a 7 you win.
Hard Four or Hard Ten bets are two different bets, but are won in a similar manner and are paid out in the same manner. Hard Four can be rolled only one way (2, 2), and Hard Ten only rolled one way (5, 5). You are betting that the shooter will roll a Hard Four or a Hard Ten (whichever you have chosen) before seven, and before any other combination of four or ten. They both pay 7:1.
Hard Six or Hard Eight bets are two different bets, but are won in a similar manner and the payout is the same. Hard Six can be rolled only one way (3, 3), and Hard Eight only rolled one way (4, 4). You are betting that the shooter will roll a Hard Six or a Hard Eight (whichever you placed your bet on) before a seven, and before any other combination of six or eight. They both pay 9:1.
Proposition bets are one time bets that are won or lost depending on the outcome of the next roll of the dice, once the bets are placed on the table.
Field Bets are popular because seven possible outcomes will win (2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11 or 12), while only four (5, 6, 7 or 8) will lose. This bet usually pays even money but depending on the house rules sometimes a casino will pay 2:1 or 3:1 when a 2 or a 12 is rolled.
Any Seven bets are made when you bet that the next roll will be a 7. The payout is 4:1.
Any Craps bets are made when you bet that the next roll's outcome will be a 2, 3 or 12. The payout is 7:1.
Horn Two bets are a one time roll bet that the shooter will roll a 2. The payout is 30:1.
Horn Twelve bets are a one time roll bet that the shooter will roll a 12. The payout is 30:1
Horn Three bets are a one time roll bet that the shooter will roll a 3. The payout is 15:1.
Horn Eleven bets also known as Yo-Eleven. Here you bet that the dice will come out with a 11 on the shooter's next roll. The payout is 15:1.
The object of the game is to get at least a "pair of 10s or better" from a combination of your three cards and two community cards, while keeping all three regular bets in action. The player does not actually play against the dealer or another player but rather against the odds in order to get the best five card poker hand possible.
Let It Ride Poker uses the standard ranking of Poker hands ranging from a Royal Flush down to a Pair of 10s. You must have at least a Pair of 10s or better to win. The higher your hand is ranked, the more you will win.
Initially you must place three identical bets. Each bet must be at least table minimum. You will have the opportunity to withdraw two of the three bets as the hand progresses. Your hand consists of five cards: three dealt to you and two community cards placed in front of the dealer.
Once you view your first three cards you may not like your chances of getting a winning combination, so you may remove your first bet if this is the case. If you feel that you will get a winning poker hand, or if you already have a pair of 10s or better, you can Let it Ride. After deciding to withdraw or Let It Ride, the first community card is dealt.
Taking all four cards into consideration, you must now decide what to do with your second bet: withdraw or Let It Ride. Your third and final bet cannot be withdrawn therefore; you must Let It Ride. The dealer now deals the fifth and final card. At this point the five cards will decide if you have a winning poker hand or not. Winning bets are paid out according to the payout schedule on the bottom right hand of the table.
You may begin by pressing the Deal button once a bet is placed on the table. You are dealt three cards face up and two community cards face down. Your final hand in combination with the two community cards determines if you have a winning hand.
Press Take Down to withdraw your first or second bet. If after viewing your first three cards you don't like your chances of getting a winning hand, you may Take Down your first bet. Once the first community card is revealed to you may take down if you consider the odds unfavorable. A Take Down can be done on the first and second bet only.
Pressing All In on a play will automatically bet on the first and second bet. This is useful in scenarios in which you are sure of having a wining hand. For example you have a pair of Jacks on your first three cards; you already have a winner so All In is the way to go.
Press Let It Ride to play your first or second bet. If after viewing your first three cards, you have or like your chances of getting a winning hand, you may keep the bet by clicking on Let It Ride. After the first community card is revealed you still consider your odds in favor, you can "Let It Ride" on your second bet as well.
Press Re-Bet to repeat your previous wager (same bet amount) and automatically deal your next hand.
The Clear Button resets the chips placed on the table back to 0.

Pai Gow originated in the 1800's during the construction of the railroad when the Chinese domino game Gai Gow was combined with American poker. It is a more slow paced game but still offers excitement to the player.
The object of the game is to have a higher ranked five-card and two-card Poker hand than the house.
Pai Gow Poker is played using a single deck of standard playing cards including a Joker. You will be dealt 7 cards. These cards must be split into two Poker hands: a two-card front hand and a five-card back hand. You can split your hand however you like but you must follow one simple rule: your back hand must be ranked higher than your front hand. To win, your hands must rank higher than the house's front and back. If one of your hands wins and one loses, the hand is a push.
After placing your bet, click the Deal Button to deal the hand. You will be dealt seven cards. Split your hand by dragging and dropping the cards on the card the front and back hand holders on the right of the table. If you change your mind, you can drag back any card again. Once your hand is set, click the Done button. The dealer will reveal the house hands. Your hands will be compared to the house hands. Remember, you must win both your front and back hand to get paid.
Hand Rankings are different winning combinations in Pai Gow Poker. As most poker based games, Pai Gow uses the common poker hands with some variations. Listed bellow are the different hands in Pai Gow starting from highest paid to lowest rank.
Roulette is the perfect example of a game of chance with one objective: Guessing which number will be the next to come up. The Roulette Table consists of a spinning wheel with numbered slots, a small white ball and a betting layout that allows bets to be placed on one or more numbers at a time. There are also side bets in the table. The wheel is spun in one direction and the ball is propelled around the outer edge of the wheel in the opposite direction. Eventually, the ball will decrease in speed and fall toward the spinning wheel where it will bounce around for a while until it lands in one of the numbered slots. If your bet or bets are a "hit", the casino pays a variety of odds based on the number of numbers covered by your bet.
To play roulette, you place your bet or bets on numbers, rows, or corners of the inside of the table layout or on the outside (see inside outside bets), and click spin. You may select your chip denomination by clicking on the chip/amount of your choice.
The function of this button is to repeat the exact same layout of bet(s) as in the previous turn.
This will clear any bets on the table should the player feel like removing the bets and placing new ones.
Inside are bets that are placed on the numbers fields on the lines between numbers. A single inside bet can cover from one to six numbers.
Outside Bets are complimentary bets that are placed on the table. These aren't bets on specific numbers but rather side bets. Here you can bet if the ball will land on a color, odd or even, first twelve numbers and so on.
Roulette is a game of chance. The outcome of a spin is not determined by prior spins. Each spin is an independent event of chance. For example, after seven successive blacks, the chance of getting a red on the next spin is still as likely as getting a black. You should not base you strategy on the false assumption that a particular outcome is 'due' to happen. Some people believe you can always break even at roulette by always betting even money, then doubling down after every loss and return to the lowest bet after a win. This is called the Martingale system. However, in practice this is not possible because every roulette table has a maximum imposed on the bet size.
After a couple of sequential losses it is no longer possible to double down, and you will lose. In fact never believe anyone who claims having invented a winning roulette system. As with all games of chance, whether you win or lose doesn't depend on the system you're using, but on luck and common sense. The outcome of a spin is not determined by prior spins. Good Luck!

The objective of Stud Poker, like that of most poker games, is to get the highest hand. There are several twists to this variety, however, that provide for a different an interesting challenge.
To begin the game, the player must place an ANTE on the table. Once the ante (which works as a straight 1:1 bet) has been placed, the cards are dealt: all of the player's cards are showing, and all of the dealer's cards are facing down, except for one. There are no card replacements for either of the parties.
Once the cards have been dealt, the player must decide if to RAISE the bet or to FOLD it. When the player decides to RAISE, the bet is raised automatically. The value of the RAISE bet is fixed as twice the ante and no modifications are allowed. The dealer must have an ace and a king or higher in order to be able to open or qualify. In other words, the lowest qualifying hand would be Ace, King, 4, 3, 2 and the highest non-qualifying hand would be Ace, Queen, Jack, 10, 9. If the dealer is unable to open his or her hand then the player will win even money on his ante wager and the raise will push.
The dealer then turns his cards up to compare both hands. If the dealer wins, he keeps both bet and ante. If the player has a better hand, he/she wins the ante straight plus the bet multiplied, in accordance to his/her hand. Refer to the payout table for complete details.
When placing the Ante, the player is allowed to Drop a Credit. This side bet can be done by placing one credit in the slot above the betting circle. The winning customer gains an advantage on payouts and an additional bonus for all hands ranking as a flush or higher.
When the player surrenders or Folds back, the dealer keeps the ante and reveals his cards.
A 3-Card Poker game consists of two hands that are made with three cards, one that is the player's and the other the dealer's hand. 3 Card Poker has two ways to bet and win:
To begin play, place a wager on the ANTE, the PAIR PLUS, or both, depending on your betting strategy. The dealer and player are dealt three cards. Dealer must have a Queen or higher to qualify. If dealer qualifies, the highest hand wins the ANTE + PLAY bet. If player has a pair or higher, the PAIR PLUS wins regardless of the dealer's hand.
To PLAY your hand, a wager equal to the ANTE is required. You are wagering that your hand beats the dealer's or that the dealer will not qualify. If your hand is higher than the dealer's qualifying hand, you win both ANTE and PLAY bets, otherwise you lose both. If the dealer does not qualify, you win the ANTE bet and the PLAY pushes. If you fold, all wagers including PAIR PLUS are forfeited.
If you bet on PAIR PLUS, you are wagering that you'll receive at least a pair or something higher in your hand. Any hand that is a pair or higher pays according to the Payouts Chart regardless of what the dealer's hand has. If only Pair Plus is played then the dealer hand is not played as there is no RAISE or FOLD. There is no skill requirement to this bet as it only consists on the outcome of the three cards. Anything less than a pair does not win. If you ANTE and do not PLAY, this wager is forfeited.
If you hit PLAY with a straight or higher (straight, 3 of a kind, or straight flush), the ANTE receives a bonus in accordance to the Payouts Chart, no matter of the outcome of the dealer's hand. If you place your mouse over the Payouts Chart you will get complete details on the payout scenarios for this game.
Press Deal once a bet is placed and you are ready to begin the game. You are dealt three cards face up. To win, you must out-rank the dealer's hand.
Press Play if you think your hand is high enough to beat the dealer's hand or if you have a Pair Plus; which will automatically place a wager equal to your ANTE wager, play your hand against the dealer's, and (or) play your Pair Plus bet.
If after viewing your three cards, you don't like your chances of "out ranking" the dealer or don't have a Pair Plus, you can "Fold" your cards and not risk losing a PLAY wager.
The Clear Button resets the coins being wagered to 0.
The payouts chart shows the different winning combinations. Placing your mouse over the button on the bottom right will reveal the chart.
The exit button closes the game. It will not be enabled at all times, however-it will be operational when no hand is being played.

The "Chips Selector" allows you to select the chip denomination you wish to play on the table.

Hand rankings are different winning combinations in 3 Card Poker. The ranking of the hands in 3 Card Poker differs from traditional poker hands. In 3 Card Poker, a STRAIGHT beats a FLUSH. Cards are ranked from highest to lowest in the following order:
The objective of the game is to get a winning combination of poker hands, the higher the rank of the final hand, the better the payout to the player. Video Poker is a game of draw poker, in which the player is dealt 5 cards face up. The player decides which cards to hold and which cards to discard for the second and final draw.
The strategy and preference for the different variations of this game is really up to the player since each game has its own set of rules and advantages both to the player and the house. Each game is explained in detail in this section.
Once you have credits in the machine you may wager. You can change the coin value and amount of coins you'll bet per turn. The bet must be placed before you Draw cards, and can't be changed during play. Once you are ready you may press Draw for the initial five cards to come up.

Baccarat is a simple game with three types of bets:
Though the game is simple, baccarat follows strict dealing rules.
Live Baccarat is played from an eight-deck shoe. All face cards and 10s have no value. Cards less than 10 are counted at face value, Aces are worth 1. The suits of the cards don't play a role in the game. Only single digit values are valid. Any count that reaches a double digit drops the left digit. 15 is counted as 5 and 25 is also counted as 5. Each hand is consisted of no more than three cards, the baccarat rules do not allow a fourth card to be dealt under any circumstances.
To start, the players bet either on Banker, Player or Tie. Both Player and Banker pay even money, but a winning Banker bet commands a 5% commission. A Tie bet pays 8:1. The goal in baccarat is to reach a point total of 9 with your hand.
The live dealer gives two cards to both the Player hand and the Banker hand; first to the Player and then the Banker. A third card may be dealt to either or both the Player and the Bank based on the following three-card-rules. It is not necessary to learn these rules to play, they are compulsory decisions and therefore automatic.
If either the Player or the Bank have a total of 8 or 9 on the first two cards no further cards are drawn. The resulting hand is called a Natural and the hand is over. If the Player's total is less than or equal to 5 the Player's hand draws a third card.
If the Player does not draw a third card, then the bank's hand stands on 6 or more and takes a third card on a total of 5 or less. If the Player does take a third card then the Bank's third-card-rule below will determine if the bank takes a third card.
After the dealer has followed the third card dealing rule, the hand is closest to 9 without going over is announced the winner. How to Play – Live Blackjack Early Payout
