How to Play Roulette

The Roulette wheel has number pockets, the amount and alignment of which differ in its few variants. All number slots also alternate between black and red with only the 0 is being marked in green. The wheel is placed on a table next to the imprinted betting area.

All players bet against the house on the number, group of numbers or the colour they think will win. The roulette table is supervised by a dealer (also sometimes more traditionally called a "croupier") who is responsible for spinning the ball and handling the bets. Players may place bets until the dealer calls "no more bets". As the game starts, the dealer spins the wheel and sets the ball rolling along the track, above the number slots. The ball will then be left to slow down and drop into the wheel, where it will come to rest in one of the number slots. As the winning number is announced, the dealer pays the winners and collects all lost bets. A new round starts as soon as all bets are handled.

European Roulette Rules

European Roulette is the oldest and probably best known version of the game. The European Roulette wheel consists of 37 number pockets that range from 1 to 36 and alternate in colour between red and black, with the 37th pocket being the number 0, which is green in colour. The alignment of the pockets on the wheel may appear random, but is actually arranged in a mathematical order to ensure an equal chance for each number to win. Bets can be placed on the table until the dealer announces "no more bets".

Baccarat

Introduction

While it is safe to say that Baccarat is very popular card game, there is less certainty as to its actual origins. Some claim it was invented in Italy, while others say it originated from France. What we do know for certain is that there are three popular variants of the game today: Punto Banco (also called "North American Baccarat"), Baccarat Chemin de Fer, and Baccarat Banque (or "?deux tableaux").

Punto Banco is strictly a game of chance and there is no skill or strategy involved. Each player's moves are forced by the cards the player is dealt and there are no optional plays.

In Baccarat Chemin de Fer and Baccarat Banque, by contrast, both players can make choices, which allow skill to play a part in proceedings.

Baccarat is a comparing card game played between two hands, the "player" and the "banker." Each Baccarat coup has three possible outcomes: "player" (player has the higher score), "banker," and "tie."

How to Play

In the game of Baccarat, a total of 8 decks (416 cards) of cards are used. Number cards Two to Nine are worth their respective face value and Aces are worth 1 point while Picture cards (Jacks, Queens and Kings) and Tens are worth 0 points. The actual value of each hand is the total value of all the cards, this calculated by summing up the total value of all the cards. For example, a hand of Four, Queen and Ten is worth 4 points (4+0+0=4) while a hand of Ace and Nine is worth 0 point (1+9=0).

Play begins by all players betting either on the "player", "banker", or a tie. At some tables you may also bet on a player pair and banker pair.

In every round of a game, 2 cards will be dealt to each Player and the Banker. No 3rd card will be dealt to the Player or Banker when either Player or Banker has a total of 8 or 9 points.

The score of the hand is the right digit of the total of the cards. For example, if the two cards were an 8 and 7, then the total would be 15 and the score would be a 5. The scores will always range from 0 to 9 and it is impossible to bust.

Third-card Rules

A third card may or may not be dealt to either the player or the dealer depending on the following rules:

  • A 3rd card will be dealt to the Player if the hand is a total of 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 points.
  • The player will stand if the hand is 6 or 7.
  • If the Player is not dealt a 3rd card, the Banker will be dealt a 3rd card if the Banker has a total of 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 points.
  • The Banker will also stand if the hand is 6 or 7.

Payouts are as follows:

  • Player: Pays 1 to 1
  • Banker: Pays 0.95 to 1
  • Tie: Pays 8 to 1 (Player and Banker bets will be returned)
  • Player/Banker Pair (first 2 cards are a pair): Pays 11 to 1

Super 6 Baccarat

Super Six Baccarat, also sometimes known as Punto 2000, is a Baccarat variation with slightly different payouts to traditional Baccarat. Just like normal Baccarat, you start the game by placing a chip on either the Banker, Player or Tie boxes. The live dealer will then deal to the Banker and Player hands according to normal third card rules.

You win if you bet on the correct outcome: Banker, Player win or Tie. Payouts for Player (1:1) and Tie (8:1) bets are the same as for normal Baccarat but the payout for Banker wins is different. Instead of paying 0.95:1, in Super 6 Baccarat the Banker win pays 1:1 unless the Banker wins with a score of 6 in which case the payout halves to 0.5:1.

Sicbo

Introduction

Sic Bo, also known as Tai Sai or Dai Siu, is an ancient but still very popular Chinese casino game. The literal meaning of Sic Bo is "precious dice", while Dai Siu and Dai Sai mean "big [or] small". The game uses three dice and a table with a variety of betting options on the roll of those dice.

The game can be traced back for hundreds, if not thousands of years and is said to have been played with bricks instead of dice in the very beginning. These bricks were painted with symbols, shuffled around in bowls and then thrown on the ground to reveal combinations of those symbols. Players were then awarded for guessing the right symbols. Over time, the bricks were changed for dice and Sic Bo made its way across the world and onto the internet, where today it is one of the most popular games around.

How to Play Sic Bo

This game is played with 3 dice which are all kept inside a dome. The dice will be shaken by the dealer after all bets have been accepted. All a player has to do is to predict the outcome of the game. Should the outcome be ambiguous, e.g. none of the faces of the dice are properly facing up or dice overlap, then the ambiguous game result will be declared void and dice will be rolled again. The Occurrence of a Triple (all three dice showing the same number) beats all bets on Big / Small and Even / Odd.

Bet Type

Small: Wins on total of 4-10, except for a three of a kind.

Big: Wins on total of 11-17, except for a three of a kind.

Odd: Wins on any odd total, except loses with any three of a kind.

Even: Wins on any even total, except loses with any three of a kind.

Double: Bet on any specific pair (for example two 1's). Player wins if at least 2 of the number chosen appears.

Triple: Player may bet on any specific trips (for example three 1's). Player wins if all 3 dice match the number chosen.

Any Triple: Wins on any three of a kind.

Any One Number: Bet on any specific number from 1 to 6. If chosen number appears 1 time bet pays 1 to 1, if it appears 2 times bet pays 2 to 1, and if it appears 3 times it pays 3 to 1.

2 Dice Combination: Bet on 2 combination numbers from 1 to 6. Three dice must be the two numbers selected.
