Table Games Rules
A card game where the object is for you to draw cards that total 21 or come closer to 21 than the dealer. All cards count at face value, except for the King, Queen and Jack which count as 10, and the Ace which counts as either 1 or 11. Every Player gets two cards, face up. The Dealer gets two cards, one card is face up and one facedown—the “hole” card. All cards are dealt from a shoe.
Once you have your two cards in front of you, you can choose to “stand” (draw no more cards), or take a “hit” (draw one or more cards) until you reach 21 or come as close as possible. However, if you go over 21, you “break” and automatically lose. A winning hand pays even money.
Now the Dealer acts on their hand according to the rules of the game. The Dealer must draw to 16 and stands on all 17’s or more when reached. At the end of the game, if your count is the same as the Dealer’s, it is a “push” (nobody wins). If the Player count is greater than the Dealer’s but does not exceed 21, or the Dealer’s count exceeds 21, the Player wins.
In the event your first two cards are an Ace and any ten-value card, the Dealer announces your hand as Blackjack. You will be paid at this time if the Dealer does not have Blackjack. If the Dealer’s hand is Blackjack, it is a push. A Player’s winning Blackjack is paid off at odds of 3 to 2. In the event the Player has Blackjack (2-card 21) and the Dealer draws to 21, the Blackjack is the winning hand and will be paid at odds of 3 to 2.
In the event the Player draws to 21 with more than 2 cards, the Dealer’s Blackjack is the winning hand.
Splitting Pairs If your first two cards are a pair with the same numerical value, you may split them into two hands, except for any two cards with a ten value such as K, Q, J and ten’s. You must bet the same amount as your original wager on each hand formed by splitting a pair. You must complete the play on your first hand before playing your second hand. However, you may double down on
each hand. If the split pair are Aces, you will receive only one card on each. Aces may be split one time for a total of two hands.
Resplitting of Pairs A player may split pairs three times for a total of four hands, Aces may be split one time for a total of two hands.
Doubling Down After you get your first two cards, you may make an additional wager up to the original amount except when
your first two cards total 21. When doubling down, you draw only one additional card.
Insurance If the Dealer’s face up card is an Ace, you may take insurance. To do this, you place a bet—no more than one-half your original bet—on the insurance line. If the Dealer’s hole card is a 10, Jack, Queen or King, you win your insurance bet at odds of 2 to 1. If the Dealer’s hole card is any other card, you lose your insurance bet. The Dealer collects all losing insurance wagers
before continuing the hand.
Even Money When a Player has Blackjack and the Dealer’s face up card is an Ace, you may choose to be paid even money for
the Blackjack in lieu of taking insurance.
Handling of Cards Players are not allowed to touch the cards.
Value of Player’s Hand The Player is responsible for the correct count of his or her hand.
Hand Signals The Player is responsible for the proper use of hand signals to indicate hit or stand. Other decisions may be made verbally.
Surrender As a Player’s point total is announced, after the first two cards have been dealt, they may elect to discontinue play of their hand for that round and surrender only one-half of their wager. If the Dealer’s second card results in a Dealer Blackjack, the Player’s entire wager will be collected by the Dealer. However, if the Dealer’s second card does not result in a Dealer Blackjack, then one-half of the player’s wager will be returned to the Player.
3 Card Poker Progressive
Three Card Poker Progressive is a new and exciting variation to poker.
Each Player and the Dealer receives three cards.
RANK OF HANDS (highest to lowest)
Straight Flush 3 cards of the same suit in consecutive rank
Three of a Kind 3 cards of the same rank, regardless of suit
Straight 3 cards of consecutive rank, regardless of suit
Flush 3 cards of same suit, regardless of rank
Pair 2 cards of same rank, regardless of suit
When comparing two hands that are of identical poker hand rank, the hand that contains the highest ranking card shall be considered the highest ranking hand. (If the hands are identical after this application, the hand shall be considered a push.)
1) Place an ANTE wager to play against the Dealer ONLY.
2) Place a PAIR PLUS and ANTE wager to play both against the posted payout and against the Dealer.
To play against the Dealer, you must make an ANTE wager, prior to the Dealer announcing “no more bets.” After viewing your three cards, you have the option to either place a PLAY wager equal to the ANTE wager or forfeit your ANTE and if applicable, your PAIR PLUS wager. The Dealer must have Queen High or Better to play.
If the Dealer’s hand does not contain a Queen High or Better, your ANTE wager wins 1 to 1 and your PLAY wager is returned. If the Dealer’s hand contains a Queen High or Better and the Player’s hand beats the Dealer’s hand, the PLAY wager is paid 1 to 1 and the ANTE wager is paid 1 to 1. In the event of the TIE, then it is PUSH and wagers are returned.
The PAIR PLUS wager allows you to bet the ranked value of the hand against the posted payout and is NOT in competition against the Dealer’s hand. This Pair Plus bet may be played independently and does not have to be the same amount as the ante wager.
The payout for the Pair Plus wager shall be as follows:
Straight Flush 40 to 1
Three of a Kind 30 to 1
Straight 6 to 1
Flush 3 to 1
Pair 1 to 1
A Player placing an ANTE wager and a PLAY wager shall be paid an automatic ANTE BONUS if the Player’s hand consists of the following:
Straight Flush 5 to 1
Three-of-a-Kind 4 to 1
Straight 1 to 1

**If the Player makes a ANTE wager and a PAIR PLUS wager but fails to make a PLAY wager, the Player shall forfeit both the ANTE wager and the PAIR PLUS wager.

number. This bet pays even money. Don’t come bets cannot be

listed in the payout chart. Come odds are inactive on the come out roll
unless called “on” by the Player. Players may wager up to 5 times their
flat bet on pass line and come bet odds.
Field You can bet on every roll of the dice. If 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11 or 12
rolls, you win. All the numbers pay even money except 2 and 12 which
pay double. If 5, 6, 7 or 8 rolls, Beautiful Nature bitcoin slots CryptoWild Casino deposit bonus you lose. The field is a one roll bet.
Place Bets On a “place bet,” you can bet on 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10 at
any time. If your number rolls before 7, you win according to the odds
payout chart. If 7 rolls before your number, you lose. Place bets are
inactive on the come out roll unless called “on” by the Player.
Buy Bets Buy Bets are exactly the same as “place bets” except by
paying a 5% commission on the buy bet, you receive the true odds as
shown on the chart. Buy bets are inactive on the come out roll unless
called “on” by the Player. A “buy” button denotes this bet.
Lay Bets You may lay a bet against 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10 at any time.
In order to do so, you must pay a 5% commission based on what you
would win. Check the chart for the payoffs. A “lay” button denotes
Proposition Bets These are one roll bets, except for “hard
ways.” The Dealer will place all “proposition” bets on the next roll of
the dice–again, except for hard ways. Unless you request otherwise,
winning bets remain in action. A description of the proposition bets
are as follows:
Any 7 You can bet “any 7” on any roll of the dice. When 7 rolls,
you win and are paid 4 to 1, if any other number rolls, you lose. This
is a one roll bet.
Any Craps You can bet on any roll of the dice. If 2, 3 or 12 rolls
you win and are paid 7 to 1. If any other number is rolled, you lose.
This is a one roll bet.
Hard Ways There are four “hard ways” combinations. Hard
four (two 2’s), hard six (two 3’s), hard eight (two 4’s) and hard ten
(two 5’s). You can bet the combination you want at any time. For
instance, if you bet the hard six (two 3’s) you win when that rolls
before 7 or an “easy six” (5 and 1 or 4 and 2). Hard ways pay high
odds as listed in the payout chart. Hard ways are inactive on the
come out roll unless called “on” by the Player.
The Horn (2, 3, 11, and 12) Here you bet on a combination
of four numbers. If any of these numbers are rolled, you win. If any
other number is rolled, you lose. One-fourth (1/4) of the horn bet
is bet on each of the individual numbers, (2, 3, 11 and 12). If any
other number is rolled, you lose. This is a one roll bet.
Horn High Bets There are four “horn high” combinations,
horn high 2 (Aces), horn high 3 (Ace-Deuce), horn high 11 and
horn high 12 (two 6’s). If 2, 3, 11 or 12 rolls, you win, if any other
number rolls, you lose. This is a one roll bet. How this differs from a
horn bet is that one-fifth (1/5) of the horn high is bet on each of the
individual horn numbers (2, 3, 11, 12), with an additional one-fifth
(1/5) of the bet on the designated horn high number (high horn 11:
two fifths (2/5) of the bet on 11, one-fifth (1/5) on 2, one fifth (1/5)
on 3 and one-fifth (1/5) on 12).
2, 3, 11 or 12 You can bet on 2, 3, 11 or 12 individually.
They are one roll bets. The winning payoff on 2 or 12 is 30 to 1.
The winning payoff on 3 or 11 is 15 to 1. If any number other than
that number bet rolls, you lose.
The World (2, 3, 7, 11, and 12) Here you bet on a combination
of five numbers. If any of these numbers are rolled, you win.
If any other number is rolled, you lose. One-fifth (1/5) of The World
bet is bet on each of the individual numbers, (2, 3, 7, 11 and 12).
If any other number is rolled, you lose. This is a one roll bet.

Want a game that moves quickly and gives you many ways to bet?
Then Roulette is for you.
In Roulette, you can bet straight up, which means your bet is on any of the 38 single numbers which include 0 and 00. Also, you can place combination bets–bets divided over a combination of adjoining numbers. Look at the Roulette table in the diagram. Here you see letters that represent the various types of bets in the game.
The chart shows their winning odds. For instance, if you placed an “A” type bet, it could be on the number shown, or any number on the table. Or, perhaps you want to place an “H” type bet. You can place it on the line adjoining 16, which pays on 16, 17 and 18.
Caution: Where you place your chip or chips on the Roulette table is very important because this determines your bet.
Use our diagram as your guide. It is the Player’s responsibility for proper placement. The Dealer spins the Roulette wheel in one direction and a small white ball in the opposite direction. Bets may be placed on the Roulette table until the Dealer announces “No More Bets.” When the ball comes to rest, the Dealer calls out the winning number and places a marker on it. First the table is cleared of losing wagers and then all winners are paid. During this time, please don’t touch the table. Wait until the Dealer announces, “Place Your Bets,” to put chips down.
If you’re wondering how your bet is kept separate from everyone else’s, it is because different colored chips are used. The value of the colored chips is determined by the Player when purchasing a stack or stacks of chips. The value of a stack of color is indicated by a numerical marker button placed on top of a chip of that color. These chips must be redeemed before you leave that particular table.
B. Column Bet 2 to 1 Any number on that vertical column

F. Even or Odd 1 to 1 Any odd or even number

5 – Casino Estoril, Lisbon, Portugal
The Estoril is in quite a surprise location – Lisbon in Portugal! Although Lisbon is not generally seen as a major place for gambling, this majestic casino could almost be described as a much loved ‘secret.’
Opening in 1916, it was (apparently) a sort of hush hush meeting point for operatives and spies during World War 1, along with the prestige it’s also got a rich heritage. This heritage has meant it’s always stuck to its original opening hours of 12 hours a day – unlike other casinos which can be open 24/7.
The almost 27,000 square foot casino features over 1,235 table games and slots in total – ranging from Baccarat, blackjack, roulette and different kinds of poker. In fact, this casino has one of the most well-known, respected, and admired poker rooms in Europe with tournaments held regularly.
Aside from the games, there’s over 10 bars and restaurants for customers to enjoy – with the bars offering drinks and some relaxation away from the games, and the high-profile restaurants offering the best quality food for casino goers.
4 – The Casino at the Empire, London, England
When you think of the biggest names in casinos… what comes to mind? You probably think of Caesars Palace in Vegas… The London Club in Cairo… and England’s very own Casino at the Empire.
Opening way back in 1884, the venue is positively oozing history from stem to stern – it’s situated inside of an old music hall (which was called the Empire, hence the name) and is based in the prestigious West End of London.
The Casino at the Empire has over 150 games, from the classic table and slot variety – spread over its 55,000 square feet, whilst its 2 bars and 2 restaurants provide players with the food and drinks they want. The poker room here is one of the best in the UK, hosting many of the UK’s biggest tournaments.
3 – Resorts World, Birmingham, UK
This £150 million resort is one of the newest in the UK, being finished in 2015 by the Genting group after two years of construction.
