A regal game with a beautiful well crafted and balanced Teak and Brass wheel with multicolored chips. It’s our observation that the ladies especially love this one. But then a lot of guys like it, too…. maybe because the ladies like it so much.
How to play Roulette
Dealer spins the wheel in one direction, then “throws” the ball in the opposite direction, along the inside rail of the Roulette Bowl. Bets may still be placed until the ball begins to slow and the dealer calls out “NO MORE BETS” to the players. The ball will strike the baffles and eventually rest on the winning number. Dealer announces the number and places the MARKER on that number on the Laydown. PLAYERS SHOULD NOT TOUCH THE PLAYING FIELD WHEN THE MARKER IS DOWN.
Dealer first removes all losing bets. Next, winning bets are paid. WHEN ALL BETS HAVE BEEN PAID, DEALER REMOVES THE MARKER AND REMINDS PLAYERS THAT THEY MAY NOW COLLECT THEIR WINNINGS AND PLACE BETS FOR THE NEXT SPIN. Players can remove their winnings or let them “ride” on the next spin.
ZERO AND DOUBLE ZERO: These numbers are normally considered to be House Numbers. Some people think that the house wins all bets if the ball lands in either the Zero or Double Zero. This is NOT the case. Players can bet on these specific numbers, the same as any other on the laydown. Bets can also be made combining these with their adjacent numbers. Remember, the Zero and Double Zero are GREEN, and therefore are not RED, BLACK, EVEN, ODD, or are NOT counted in the 1-18 or 19-36.
How to Play Craps
Craps is one of the most exciting casino games. It is common to hear yelling and shouting at a craps table. It is played on a purpose-built table and two dice are used. The dice are made after very strict standards and are routinely inspected for any damage. As a matter of course, the dice are replaced with new ones after about eight hours of use, and casinos have implemented rules in the way a player handles them.
The player must handle the dice with one hand only when throwing and the dice must hit the walls on the opposite end of the table. In the event that one or both dice are thrown off the table, they must be inspected (usually by the stickman) before putting them back into play.
The craps table can accommodate up to about 14 to 16 players, who each get a round of throws or at ‘shooting’ the dice. If you don’t want to throw the dice, you can bet on the thrower. Several types of bets can be made on the table action. The standard casino crew in a casino consists of a stickman, boxman and two dealers. The ACE casino usually uses two, a stickman and a dealer/boxman.
The first roll of the dice in a betting round is called the Come Out roll – a new game in Craps begins with the Come Out roll. A Come Out roll can be made only when the previous shooter fails to make a winning roll, that is, fails to make the Point or seven out.
A new game then begins with a new shooter. If the current shooter does make his Point, the dice are returned to him and he then begins the new Come Out roll. This is a continuation of that shooter’s roll, although technically, the Come Out roll identifies a new game about to begin.
When the shooter fails to make his or her Point, the dice are then offered to the next player for a new Come Out roll and the game continues in the same manner. The new shooter will be the person directly next to the left of the previous shooter – so the game moves in a clockwise fashion around the craps table.
The dice are rolled across the craps table layout. The layout is divided into three areas – two side areas separated by a center one. Each side area is the mirror reflection of the other and contains the following: Pass and Don’t Pass line bets, Come and Don’t Come bets, Odds bet, Place bets and Field bets. The center area is shared by both side areas and contains the Proposition bets.
Pass bets win when the come out roll is 7 or 11, while pass bets lose when the come out roll is 2, 3, or 12. Don’t bets lose when the come out roll is 7 or 11, and don’t bets win when the come out roll is 2 or 3. Don’t bets tie when the come out roll is 12 (2 in some casinos; the ‘Bar‘ roll on the layout indicates which roll is treated as a tie).
Below is a list of the various bets you can make at craps.
Pass Line Bet – You win if the first roll is a natural (7, 11) and lose if it is craps (2, 3, 12). If a point is rolled (4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10) it must be repeated before a 7 is thrown in order to win. If 7 is rolled before the point you lose.
Odds on Pass Line Bet – After a point is rolled you can make this additional bet by taking odds. There are different payoffs for each point. A point of 4 or 10 will pay you 2:1; 5 or 9 pays 3:2; 6 or 8 pays 6:5. You only win if the point is rolled again before a 7.
Come Bet – It has the same rules as the Pass Line bet. The difference consists in the fact you can make this bet only after the point on the pass line has been determined. After you place your bet the first dice roll will set the come point. You win if it is a natural (7, 11) and lose if it is craps (2, 3, 12). Other rolls will make you a winner if the come point is repeated before a 7 is rolled. If a 7 is rolled first you lose.
Odds on Come Bet – Exactly the same thing as the Odds on Pass Line bet except you take odds on the Come bet not the Pass Line bet.
Don’t Pass Line Bet – This is the reversed Pass Line bet. If the first roll of a dice is a natural (7, 11) you lose and if it is a 2 or a 3 you win. A dice roll of 12 means you have a tie or push with the casino. If the roll is a point (4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10) a 7 must come out before that point is repeated to make you a winner. If the point is rolled again before the 7 you lose.
Don’t Come Bet – The reversed Come Bet. After the come point has been established you win if it is a 2 or 3 and lose for 7 or 11. 12 is a tie and other dice rolls will make you win only if a 7 appears before them on the following throws.
Place Bets – This bet works only after the point has been determined. You can bet on a dice roll of 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 and 10. You win if the number you placed your bet on is rolled before a 7. Otherwise you lose. The Place Bets payoffs are different depending on the number you bet on. 4 or 10 will pay 9:5; 5 or 9 pays 7:5, and 6 or 8 pays 7:6. You can cancel this bet anytime you want to.
Field Bets – These bets are for one dice roll only. If a 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 12 is rolled you win. A 5, 6, 7 and 8 make you lose. Field Bets have the following different payoffs: 2 pays double (2:1) while 12 pays 3:1. Other winning dice rolls pays even (1:1).
Big Six, Big Eight Bets – Placed at any roll of dice these bets win if a 6 or 8 comes out before a 7 is rolled. Big Six and Big Eight are even bets and are paid at 1:1.
Proposition Bets – These bets can be made at any time and, except for the hardways, they are all one roll bets:
¡¤ Any Craps: Wins if a 2, 3 or 12 is thrown. Payoff 8:1
¡¤ Any Seven: Wins if a 7 is rolled. Payoff 5:1
¡¤ Eleven: Wins if a 11 is thrown. Payoff 16:1
¡¤ Ace Deuce: Wins if a 3 is rolled. Payoff 16:1
¡¤ Aces or Boxcars: Wins if a 2 or 12 is thrown. Payoff 30:1
¡¤ Horn Bet: it acts as the bets on 2, 3, 11 and 12 all at once. Wins if one of these numbers is rolled. Payoff is determined according to the number rolled. The other three bets are lost.
¡¤ Hardways: The bet on a hardway number wins if it’s thrown hard (sum of pairs: 1-1, 3-3, 4-4…) before it’s rolled easy and a 7 is thrown. Payoffs: Hard 4 and 10, 8:1; Hard 6 and 8, 10:1
2 – 17%
The basic premise of the game is that you want to have a hand value that is closer to 21 than that of the dealer, without going over 21. Other players at the table are of no concern to you. Your hand is strictly played out against the hand of the dealer. The rules of play for the dealer are strictly dictated, leaving no decisions up to the dealer. Therefore, there is not a problem with the dealer or any of the other players at the table seeing the cards in your hand. Values of the cards In blackjack, the cards are valued as follows: An Ace can count as either 1 or 11, as demonstrated below. The cards from 2 through 9 are valued as indicated. The 10, Jack, Queen, and King are all valued at 10. The suits of the cards do not have any meaning in the game. The value of a hand is simply the sum of the point counts of each card in the hand. A blackjack, or natural, is a total of 21 in your first two cards. A blackjack is therefore an Ace and any ten-valued card, with the additional requirement that these be your first two cards.
Like many things, it’s easier done than said. Just give it a try, and we’ll teach you how to be a better blackjack player!
Texas Hold’em, quite simply the most popular card game in America today.
How to play Poker
1. The betting structure can vary, but most games start with two players placing out a predetermined amount of money so there is an initial amount to play for. This is called posting the blinds. These players are the two to the left of the dealer.
2. The dealer shuffles up a complete deck of 52 playing cards.
3. Each player is dealt two cards face down. These are called your hole or pocket cards.
4. A round of betting starting with the guy to the left of the two who posted the blinds. This round is usually referred to by the term pre-flop.
5. The amount betted depends on what kind of game it is.
6. Much like most games of poker, players can check, raise, or fold.
7. After the betting round ends, the dealer discards the top card of the deck. This is called a burn card. This is done to prevent cheating.
8. The dealer then flips the next three cards face up on the table. These cards are called the flop. These are communal cards that anyone can use in combination with their two pocket cards to form a poker hand.
9. There is another round of betting starting with the player to the left of the dealer.
10. After the betting concludes, the dealer burns another card and flips one more onto the table. This is called the turn card. Players can use this sixth card now to form a five card poker hand.
11. The player to the left of the dealer begins another round of betting. In many types of games, this is where the bet size doubles.
12. Finally, the dealer burns a card and places a final card face up on the table. This is called the river. Players can now use any of the five cards on the table or the two cards in their pocket to form a five card poker hand.
13. There is one final round of betting starting with the player to the left of the dealer.
14. After that, all of the players remaining in the game begin to reveal their hands. This begins with the player to the left of the last player to call. It’s called the showdown.
15. The player who shows the best hand wins! There are cases where players with equal hands share the winnings.
Three Card Poker
Three Card Poker is a relatively new poker game that has begun to generate a following of players. It combines the excitement of blackjack, where player competes with the dealer, and Caribbean Stud, in which players are paid for attaining a minimum hand.
The game is played with a standard deck of 52 cards on a blackjack-style table. In this game, the dealer plays a hand along with the other players, very much like blackjack. Both the player and dealer get three cards face down.
There are actually two “objects” to the game. The first is to hope your poker hand beats the dealer’s poker hand.
The other object, which is also a separate bet, is that your three-card hand will be a least a pair or higher.
Prior to the deal, you must determine which bet or bets you want to make. If you want to compete against the dealer’s hand you make a bet on the Ante spot. If instead you want to bet that your three-card hand will be at least a pair or higher, then you would wager on the Pair Plus box.
The betting spots for making these wagers are located directly in front of each player. If you decide to play against the dealer and bet the ante, the play begins with the dealer giving you and he three cards face down.
You pick up your cards, look at them, and decide whether you want to stay in the game or fold. If you want to stay, you must make another equal bet in the “Play” betting spot. If you decide instead to fold, you would place your cards face down on the layout toward the dealer, and you forfeit your ante bet.
After all the players have decided to play or fold, the dealer will look at his cards. If the dealer has a queen or higher, then his hand “qualifies” and play will continue against the remaining players.
If the dealer doesn’t have a queen or higher, he will automatically pay each player who stayed in the game (i.e. wagered on the Play) even money on the Ante wager and return the Play wager to the player (it’s a push). When the dealer’s hand qualifies but your hand has a higher poker rank than his, you win your Ante and Play wagers at even money. If instead the dealer’s hand beats your hand, you lose both your Ante and Play wagers. If you don’t want to compete against the dealer’s hand, your other betting option is to bet on the Pair Plus.
You win if your three-card hand contains at least a pair or higher. The higher the poker rank, the greater the payout. You lose the Pair Plus bet if you end up with less than a pair. These are paid regardless of the dealer’s hand. Straight Flush 40 to 1 Three-of-a-Kind 30 to 1 Straight 6 to 1 Flush 4 to 1 Pair 1 to 1.
The casinos’ edge for the Pair Plus is 2.3 percent and for the Ante wager it’s 3.4 percent based on the initial bet, or 2.0 and 2.3 percent respectively based on the total money bet. Compared to the similar Caribbean Stud Poker and Let it Ride poker games, Three Card Poker is actually a better deal for the player. Of course, it always helps to be lucky, regardless of the house advantage!
The Money Wheel
The Money Wheel is a favorite of the novice. Some of the reasons people choose the Money Wheel are it’s attractiveness, it’s simplicity, and the fact one need not even be able to speak the language of the dealer to play.
Playing the Moneywheel
The Money Wheel is the easiest to play of the casino games used by Atlanta Casino Events. It is simply a 5 foot wheel with real-looking bills encased in plastic for protection and a table in front of it. There is a “clicker” at the top and the wheel spins in “Wheel of Fortune” style, stopping on one of the bills. They are in increments of $1, $2, $5, $10, and $20, plus the Joker and the American Flag.
Bets are placed on the Money Wheel table on numbers that correspond to the bills on the wheel, and pays off in those increments, i.e. if you place a chip on the number one on the table and the wheel stops on a $1 bill, the payoff is 1 to 1. If you place a chip on the 2 on the table and it stops on a $2 bill, the payoff is 2 to 1, $5 is a 5 to 1 payoff and so on.
The flag and the Joker pay 40 to 1!
