How to play
Roulette is fun and easy to play. The roulette wheel is marked with numbers 1 through 36 and symbols "0" and "00." The numbers are alternately colored red and black and the "0" and "00" are green. Color and number combinations offer a variety of betting options. Wagers can be placed on individual numbers or groups of numbers. Roulette chips are different from other casino chips. Each Player receives a different color chip and decides the value of the chips when they are purchased.
OBJECT OF THE GAME
You're wagering that a ball spun around the track of the roulette wheel will come to rest on a number or color of your choice.
Chips are purchased from the Dealer, in denominations of $1, $5, $25, and $100. You play with your own distinct colored chips that are good only at the table where they're issued. To begin, Players place their bets by setting chips directly on the numbered table layout. The Dealer then spins the ball in the opposite direction of the spinning wheel. The ball must complete at least three revolutions to be considered valid. Bets may be placed until the Dealer announces "No more bets." As the ball comes to rest on the roulette wheel, the Dealer places a marker on the winning number on the table layout and pays the winning bets.
Before leaving the table, be sure to cash in your roulette chips for value chips; roulette chips have no value printed on them and cannot be used or exchanged anywhere in the casino except at the table where they were purchased.
*Table minimums will be based on player demand and table availability.
Craps is a fast-paced, action-packed, exciting game. Here are some basic rules to help you understand the game. One Player, called the "Shooter," throws the dice to the opposite end of the table. All bets must be made prior to the roll of the dice. We offer 5x odds on all points!
Types of Bets
A. PASS LINE: An even money bet. On the "come out" roll (the first roll), you win on seven or eleven, or lose on "craps" (two, three, or twelve). Any other number rolled is your "point" (4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10), and you must throw your point again before a seven to win.
B. DON'T PASS LINE: Opposite of the Pass Line. You lose on seven or eleven on the first roll. You win on two or three (twelve is a tie). You lose after the first roll if the shooter makes his point. You win after the first roll if the shooter rolls seven before making his point.
C. COME BETS: Made any time after the first roll when a shooter has a point to make. You win on seven or eleven and lose on craps (two, three, or twelve). Any number that comes up is a "come point" and must be thrown again before a seven.
D. DON'T COME BETS: Opposite of the come bet, except that a first roll of two or three wins, twelve is a tie, and you lose on seven or eleven. Any other number thrown is the "come point," and you lose if the come point is made before a seven.
ODDS: Once a point is made on the first roll or a come point on a succeeding roll, you can take the odds and win if the point or come points are made before a seven. Payoffs are: (6 to 5) on sixes and eights, (3 to 2) on fives and nines, and (2 to 1) on fours and tens. "Don't Pass" or "Don't Come" odds are in reverse. You must lay the odds in order to win.
E. PLACE BETS: You can make a place bet on any of the point numbers (4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10). If the shooter rolls your number(s) before a seven, you win. The payoffs are (9 to 5) on four and ten, (7 to 5) on five and nine, and (7 to 6) on six and eight. A place bet may be removed anytime before the next roll. Note: Place bets are off when the puck (point indicator) is off, unless requested to be "on."
F. FIELD BET: You can make a field bet anytime; this is a one-roll bet. On the next roll of the dice, you win even money (1 to 1) if the 3, 4, 9, 10, or 11 roll, and double your money (2 to 1) if the 2 or 12 roll. If 5, 6, 7 or 8 roll, you lose.
G. PROPOSITION BETS: You can make a proposition bet at any time, and this is also a one-roll bet. Any 7 pays (4 to 1), 3 or 11 pays (15 to 1), 2 or 12 pays (30 to 1) and any craps - 2, 3, or 12 pays (7 to 1), just to name a few.
H. HARDWAYS: You can make a hardways bet on the following numbers: 4, 6, 8 or 10. If your number comes in a pair (2 and 2 is a hard four), you win. If your number rolls any other way or if a seven rolls, you lose. The payoff odds are (7 to 1) on hard 4 and 10; and (9 to 1) on hard 6 and 8. Note: Hardways are off when the puck (point indicator) is off, unless requested to be "on."
The object is for you to draw cards that total 21 or come closer to 21 than the Dealer. All cards are at face value, except the King, Queen, and Jack, which count as 10. An Ace will have a value of 11 unless that would give a Player or the Dealer a score in excess fo 21; in which case, it has a value of 1. The Dealer starts the game. Every Player gets 2 cards, face up. The Dealer gets 2 cards with a Hole Card (1 card face down). Once you have received your 2 cards, 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 (automatically lose). A winning hand pays even money.
Only after all Players' hands are played does the Dealer disclose the Hole Card and play the Dealer's hand. The Dealer turns over the Hole Card and acts on the hand according to the rules of the game. If the Dealer has 16 or soft 17, he must "hit" (receive additional cards), until he reaches a hard 17 or more. At the end of the game, if your count is the same as the Dealer's count and both have not exceeded 21, the hand will be a Standoff. If the Dealer's count exceeds 21 and the Player's hand does not, the Player wins.
In the event your first two cards are an Ace and any 10 value cards, the Dealer announces your hand as "Blackjack." You will be paid at this time, if the Dealer does not have an Ace or a 10 value card as a face up card. If the Dealer's hand is Blackjack, the game is a Standoff. A Player's winning Blackjack is paid off at odds of 3 to 2. A two-card 21 wins over a multi-card 21 in all circumstances.
BLACKJACK PLAYING OPTIONS
To increase your chances of winning, or winning a bigger payout, consider the following options:
If your first 2 cards are a pair with the same numerical value, you may split them into 2 hands. You must bet the same amount as your original wager on each hand formed by splitting a pair. You must complete play on your hand before playing your second hand. If the split pairs are Aces, you will only receive 1 card on each hand. Because only 1 card is given when Aces are split, a Player may not double down on Aces that have been split. Pairs may split a maximum of 3 times, for a total of 4 hands, if you split your initial pair and you receive an identically valued card to create another pair.
After you get your first 2 cards, except when your first 2 cards total 21, you have the opportunity to "double down," i.e. double your bet. When doubling down, you can draw only 1 additional card.
If the Dealer's face up card is an Ace, and prior to anyone receiving additional cards, you may take insurance. To do this, you place a bet no more than one-half of 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 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. If the correct amount of insurance cannot be bet due to the limitation of the value of chip denomination, (i.e., a $7.50 bet allowing $3.75 insurance bet) the Player may insure as close to the maximum insurance without over-insuring the bet.
Players are not allowed to touch the cards. The Player is responsible for the correct count of his/her hand. The Player is responsible for the proper use of hand signals to indicate Hit or Stand. Other decisions may be made verbally.
