Baccarat

  • Baccarat is considered a "Single Play" game. This means that players will only make one move for each hand, unlike other card games such a Blackjack where players will keep making decisions during gameplay. In Baccarat, players will simply choose one of the 3 available bets and will bet on the banker, the player or a tie; the cards will then be dealt according to a set of rules.Although the 3 different versions of the game have slightly different rules, they all have the same basic guidelines and rules.The purpose of the game is to get a total hand that is closer to 9 than another player's hand. Nine is the maximum hand total because whenever a hand total reaches 10, it will equal zero, making 9 the highest hand. Whenever a hand total goes over 9, it will restart back to zero. Here is an example of how to calculate the hand total:If the 2 cards forming the hand are 7 and 2, the total is nine; if the 2 cards are a 7 and a 3, then the total is zero;and if 2 cards are 7 and 4, then the total is 1.

Caribean Stud Poker

  • This popular variant of traditional poker is all about beating the dealer by exceeding the value of his or her hand.Caribbean stud poker is played with a standard 52-card deck on a blackjack-type table.The game starts with the ante, the accepted name of the first bet. This can be any amount within the table limits.The start of the game is also the moment at which players can choose to join the progressive jackpot by placing a bet onthe jackpot section of the table. Obviously, the actual chances of winning the progressive jackpot are quite low, but whenyou do so you will be happy that you made that bet!After the first bets have been placed, both player and dealer receive five cards each.One of the dealer's cards will be dealt face-up, the other four cards face-down. All players' cards are dealt face-down.After that, the player can choose to fold (quit and loose the original bet), or play on (to continue and double the ante betis known as a call bet).If the player continues, the dealer will check his or her cards. The dealer has to have a king and an ace (or higher),or the player will automatically win even money on the ante bet. The additional bet is returned then, and the call bet willbe a push. If the dealer has a king and an ace (or higher), the player's cards and the dealer's cards will be compared.If the player's hand is better than the dealer's, the player wins even money (1:1) on the ante bet.

Red Dog

  • Red Dog uses a normal deck of cards (the number of decks is usually 1), and cards are ranked normally with Ace being thehighest. After placing the bet, two cards are dealt face up on the table. In case the two cards have the same value, thenthird card is dealt and if it has the same value as well, player is paid 12 times his bet, otherwise the bet is returned(a push). In case the two cards are consecutive, then the bet is returned as well (a push). Otherwise the player may eithercall or double his bet, and wins according to the following paytable if the third card drawn is ranked between the two cards.The Spread means how many different card ranks fit between the two cards. If the third card drawn isn’t between the two cards,then the player loses his bet.If the spread is 7 or higher then there is more than 50% chance to win the hand (as there is 13 ranks total). Therefore the optimal strategy is to double the bet on all Spreads of 7 or higher, and call otherwise. Even thoughspreads 1 – 3 have more than 1:1 payout you shouldn’t raise on these hands as the probability of winning is much smaller.

High or Low

  • A deck of 52 cards is used for the game (no jokers). The deck is shuffled, and nine cards are placed in a horizontal line face down in front of each player.Both players turn face up the first card on the left side of their line of cards.Card value starts with aces considered the lowest (value of 1) and kings being considered the highest (value of 13).The two players take turns guessing whether the next face-down card in their line-up will be of lower or higher value thanthe previous card before flipping the card face up. If a guess is incorrect, the player must remove all face-up cards fromtheir lineup to a discard pile, replace each card with a new face-down card from the deck, and then start over.The first player to flip all of their cards wins the game.An instant loss will occur when a player encounters duplicate cards. For instance, if a player sees an ace and states thenext card will be of higher value to find the next card also is an ace, that player loses because the card is not ofgreater or lower value.Players should decide whether this rule is in effect before the game begins.
