American Roulette

 

To play roulette, players must first buy their chips from the dealer at the table. To avoid confusion, each player is allocated a colour chip that is unique to him or her. In this way, players are easily able to recognise where they have placed their chips thus avoiding mistaken claims or errors of ownership.

These coloured chips may not be played at any other table and each player sets their value within the limits which are clearly displayed at each table. When players have finished playing they must remember to exchange their colour chips for 'cash' chips prior to leaving the game. Bets may be placed on any number or combination of numbers as indicated in Betting Options below. At first, play may seem complicated and we advise newcomers to first watch other players placing their chips; it will not take long to understand the rudiments of this classic casino game.

Please remember that the dealers are there to deal the game according to the rules. They cannot advise you on how much or where to bet, but they will be pleased to help with game etiquette. If you wish to change cash or chips, please wait for a pause in play, attract the dealer's attention and place the money on the table.



Betting Options

1) Straight up (A) - a bet on one number that, if it wins, will be paid at odds of 35-to-1.

2) Split (B) - when a chip is placed on the line that separates two numbers. If either number wins, the pay-out is 17:1.

3) Corner (C) - a chip placed in an area that splits four numbers. If the ball settles in any of those four numbers, the winner will receive odds of 8-to-1.

4) Street (D) - a chip placed at the beginning of a row of three numbers across the table. If any of those three numbers is spun, the winning chips are paid at odds of 11-to-1.

5) Sixline (E) - a chip on the line between two streets covering six numbers. If any one of those six numbers wins, the pay-out is 5-to-1.


6) Dozens (F) - these are areas that each correspond to 12-number sections on the roulette table. '1st 12' covers the numbers from 1 to 12; '2nd 12' covers the numbers from 13 to 24; and '3rd 12' covers the last section of numbers from 25 to 36. A bet on the '1st 12' wins if a number from 1 to 12 is spun. The same principle holds true for the other dozen bets. All winning dozens bets are paid at odds of 2-to-1.

7) Columns (G) - a chip placed on a column also covers 12 numbers. The betting area is at the foot of the table (farthest from zero) and the first column covers the numbers 1 / 4 / 7 / 10 etc to 34; the second column covers the numbers 2 / 5 / 8 / 11 etc to 35; the third column covers the numbers 3 / 6 / 9 / 12 etc to 36. A winning bet on a column is paid at odds of 2:1.

8) Red or Black (H) - if a chip is placed on 'Red' and a red number is spun, that chip wins and is paid even money (1:1). The same principle applies to 'Black'.

9) Odd or Even (H) - if a chip is placed on 'Odd' and an odd number is spun, that chip wins and is paid even money (1:1). The same principle applies to 'Even'.

10) 1-18 and 19-36 (H) - if a chip is placed on '1-18' and a number within that group is spun, that chip wins and is paid even money (1:1). The same principle applies to '19-36'.

When zero is spun, all bets placed on Dozens, Columns, Red, Black, Odd, Even, High (19-36) and Low (1-18) lose.

 

 

Blackjack

 

 

 

Blackjack is a game played with six conventional decks of playing cards. The object of blackjack is for the player to beat the dealer's hand by drawing cards to achieve a point total as near as possible to 21, without going 'bust', i.e. exceeding 21.

Bets are placed in one of the designated 'boxes'. Each player and the dealer are then dealt a card followed by a second, dealt to the players only. All cards are dealt 'face-up'. Players are free to draw additional cards as they wish, to achieve a total as close to 21 as possible. The dealer, however, has no options to draw or stand and must draw on 16 or less and stand on 17 or more. All face cards are valued 10, while an Ace is either 1 or 11. A blackjack is an Ace and a card valued at 10 (10, J, Q or K). A blackjack always beats three or more cards that equal 21.

Doubling: If a player's first two cards total between 2 and 11, he or she may elect to double the initial bet and receive only one additional card.

Splitting: If a player's first two cards are of the same value, he or she may choose to split them and form two separate hands by adding a further bet equal to the original bet. The dealer will separate the two cards and deal additional cards to create two new hands. Hands may be split up to a maximum of three times, to form a total of four hands, and all normal playing rules apply to all split hands, including doubling. Aces may only be split once. A two-card '21' on a split hand is not a blackjack and is paid at even money if it wins.

Insurance: If a dealer's first card is an Ace, players may elect to insure against the dealer making a blackjack. In this instance, the player may place up to half of the original bet on the insurance line. If the dealer makes a blackjack, the insurance bet wins and is paid at odds of 2-to-1. The insurance bet loses if the dealer does not make a blackjack.

Pay-outs: A blackjack (21 achieved with the first two cards of the hand) is paid at odds of 3-to-2 providing that the dealer does not achieve a blackjack; in this case the player's hand neither wins nor loses (stand-off). All other winning hands are paid at even money.

Please remember that the dealers are there to deal the game according to the rules. They cannot advise on how much or where to bet but they will be pleased to assist with game etiquette. If players wish to change cash or chips, they should wait for a pause in play then attract the dealer's attention, placing the money on the table.

Card Values: Ace = 1 or 11; Picture cards = 10; All other cards = face value.
