Roulette


Will you choose red or black? Place your bets on a single number or a combination? Will you play odds or evens? Watch as the dealer calls “Place your bets!” then spins the ball in the wheel in this thrilling casino game of chance.

How to Play

  • Buy your chips at the table and you will be given your own colour. These ‘colour’ chips only have value at this table and must be exchanged for cash chips before you leave the table.
  • Place your chips on the number or number combinations you think will be lucky.
  • The Dealer will help you place your bets if you require assistance, but it is your responsibility to make sure that the bets are placed correctly.
  • The Dealer spins the ball. You may continue to place bets until the Dealer announces that no more bets may be placed.
  • The Dealer clears the table, leaving all the winning bets and then pays them accordingly.
House Edge

In Roulette the House Edge is achieved by the casino paying slightly less than the true odds. The true odds for a single Roulette number to win are 1/37, since there are 37 numbers in the wheel. Winning bets, however, are actually paid at 35-1.

If the winning number is Zero, Even Chance bets retain half the stake.
Even Chance bet 1.35%
Bets on the layout 2.70%

Blackjack


Blackjack is one of the most popular casino card games in the world. It’s absorbing, challenging, exciting and easy to play. In Blackjack you play against the Dealer. To win your card total must be greater than the Dealer’s total, but not exceed 21.

How to Play

  • Each player places a bet in the betting areas marked on the layout. All Players receive two cards and the Dealer one.
  • The Players are asked in turn whether they wish to ‘draw’ another card or ‘stay’ with the total they have.
  • Once all Players have finished the Dealer draws cards to their hand.
  • The Dealer must draw a card if they have 16 or less. When the Dealer’s hand reaches a total of 17 or more they cannot draw another card.
  • All winning bets are paid even money with the exception of any Blackjacks.

Splitting

When the first two cards dealt to your hand are a pair you may split them to create two separate hands, by placing an additional stake equal to the original bet.

Perfect Pair

Perfect pairs is an exciting new feature on Blackjack giving you the option to place an extra bet that your first two cards will be either a Perfect Pair (30-1), a Coloured Pair (10-1) or a Mixed Pair (5-1).

21+3

21+3 is an optional bonus bet that introduces an element of Poker into Blackjack. It combines your first two cards with the Dealer’s first card, to make a three card Poker hand.

At the same time as you place your standard Blackjack bet, place your 21+3 wager in the betting area provided. If your first two cards combine with the Dealer’s first card to make any of the following Poker hands, your wager will be paid at 9-1.

Flush - Three unrelated cards of the same suit

Straight - Three consecutive cards of differing suits

Three of a kind - Three cards of the same denomination e.g. three sevens

Straight flush - Three consecutive cards of the same suit

If your cards do not make one of these Poker hands, your 21+3 wager will lose but your Blackjack wager remains unaffected. Play will continue once all 21+3 side bets have been settled.

Buy-In

Wait for the current round of play to end and ask the croupier to buy-in for your desired amount (Different tables have different minimum bets). Money can’t be handed directly to the croupier, so place it on the table and the croupier will exchange for chips.

House Edge

Standard game 6 decks (best technique) 0.55%
Perfect pairs 5.79%
21+3 Sidebet 6 decks 3.23%
In the standard Blackjack game the edge can vary (for and against the house) according to player style.

Three Card Poker

Three Card Poker is actually two games in one:
There is the Play/Ante game where you are playing against the dealer to see who has the highest hand. There is also the Pair Plus game where you are wagering on whether or not you will be dealt a pair or better.

How to Play

  • Before any cards are dealt, you decide whether to place a bet on Ante and/or on Pair Plus.
  • The Dealer then deals three cards to each player
  • If you have placed an Ante bet and you believe your hand is high enough to beat the Dealer’s hand, then you can continue to play by placing an additional bet equal to your original Ante bet.
  • If you believe your hand will not beat the Dealer’s or you do not have a Pair, then you can fold and your bets will be collected by the Dealer.
  • Once all Players have placed a play bet or folded, the Dealer will turn their cards face up. To qualify, the Dealer must have a hand of at least Queen high. If they don’t have a Queen then all Ante, Ante bonus and winning Pair Plus bets are paid.
  • If the Dealer qualifies and your hand beats the Dealer’s, then your Ante and Play bets are paid at even money.

Ranking of hands

The ranking of hands in Three Card Poker is different from traditional Poker. In Three Card Poker a Straight beats a Flush and a Three of a Kind beats a Straight.

Hand Rankings

Buy-In

Wait for the current round of play to end and ask the croupier to buy-in for your desired amount (Different tables have different minimum bets). Money can’t be handed directly to the croupier, so place it on the table and the croupier will exchange for chips.

House Edge

Ante and Play 2.0%
Pair Plus wager 2.7%
Prime wagers 3.6%

Poker

The aim of the game is for one Player, using their best five card poker hand, to beat the other Players and win the pot. This is done by either having the highest ranking hand or by all the other Players folding.

How to Play Texas Hold'em

Two hole cards are dealt to each Player, followed by a round of betting. Three community cards are dealt face up (the flop) followed by another round of betting. Another card (the turn) is dealt, then the final community card (the river), each with a round of betting. The winning Player is the one with the best five card hand formed from any combination of their hole cards and community cards.

How to Play Omaha

Each Player receives between four and six hole cards. The community cards are dealt as in Texas Hold’em, and the betting round follows the same process. The winning hand in Omaha is the best five card hand formed by two of the Player’s hole cards and three of the community cards. Other variations may be available, with rules posted in the poker room.
