The object of the game of Blackjack is to get a card total that is higher than the dealer’s card total without going over a count of 21. You are playing against the dealer and not against the other players at the table, and to win your hand total must be 21 or less, but higher than the dealer’s hand total.
Face cards all have a value of 10, cards between 2 and 10 are counted at their face value, and an ace can be counted as 1 or 11, whichever is best for your hand. For example, if you have an Ace and a 6, your hand total can be either 7 or 17. If your first two cards are an Ace and a 10-value card, it’s called a Blackjack and beats all other hands except for another Blackjack. This means that even if the dealer makes 21 with three or more cards, you still win with Blackjack!
To start playing, simply place a bet in the appropriate betting circle. There are also side bets you can make on various outcomes and cards that come into play that hand, which are discussed later. After placing your bet(s), you are dealt two cards face up. The dealer also gets two cards, however one of the dealer's cards is face down, known as the ‘hole’ card. After the cards are dealt, when it is your turn to act you have the choice of ‘standing’ which is staying with your current cards and hand total, or ‘hitting’ to take another card. You may ‘hit’ your hand as many times as you like, however if you go over 21 you ‘bust’ and the dealer wins automatically.
Once all players have made their decisions on their hands, the dealer will reveal his hole card. If the dealer has a hand total of 17 or higher, they will stand (one exception - if it’s a ‘soft’ 17 meaning an Ace and a 6, the dealer hits). If the dealer has a total of 16 or less, they must hit their hand until they reach 17 or more. While taking additional cards, if the dealer exceeds 21 they bust their hand and lose, paying all remaining hands in play for their main bet. The payoff for your main bet is even money (1:1). If you get a Blackjack, the payoff is 3 to 2. If the dealer gets Blackjack at the same time, it’s a tie and you don’t win or lose.
You may double down on your initial bet after your first two cards; when you double down you only receive one more card and you cannot hit your hand any more. You may also split your hand if your first two cards are the same value by placing a bet of equal value to your original bet. For example, if you split a pair of 9’s you create two separate hands each with an initial value of 9. You then play out each hand as you would normally by hitting and standing as you would normally. If you split a pair of Aces, you will only receive one card on each split hand. All other split hands can take as many cards as you want to make your totals.
Insurance is offered to players when the dealer has an Ace as their up card showing, due to the possibility of the dealer having Blackjack. After everyone has their first two cards, the dealer offers the insurance bet which is half of your original wager. If the dealer does have Blackjack, the payoff is 2:1 or twice your insurance wager.
Side bets can be placed in addition to the initial bet. Betting on sidebets alone is not permitted. If the player has only placed a side bet when the game starts, the bet amount will be returned to them. Bets on side bets cannot exceed the initial bet on the main Blackjack hand.
Poker Blackjack is an optional side bet that is placed after placing your main bet. You are betting on the first two cards you are dealt, PLUS the dealer’s face up card to make a 3-card poker hand.
Magic Twenty is another optional side bet that is placed after placing your main bet and is one of the most popular blackjack side bets. This bet wins if the player's first two cards have any 20-point hand total. Certain 20-point hands, especially those containing two queens, pay more.
The dealer score side bet is another optional side bet that is placed after placing your main bet, where you are betting on the final value of the dealer's hand.

Baccarat is an exciting card game that is easy and fun to play and offers some of the best odds for the guest! The object of the game is to obtain a hand with a point total closest to 9. In Baccarat, Aces are worth 1; face cards and tens are all worth zero (0), and all other cards are worth their face value. For example, an 8 and a 7 equals 15. Whenever the total count gets over ten, the left digit is dropped and the point total becomes 5. A 5 and a 4 equals 9 and if you get a score of 9 on either banker or player with your first two cards this is called a ‘natural 9’. A ten and a 7 equals a point total of 7 as tens are worth zero (0).
The game starts by the player placing a bet on either player OR banker and/or tie, as well as the optional side bets which are discussed in more detail later. Two cards are dealt from a shoe to each hand. The first hand represents the players cards or hand, and the second hand represents the bankers cards. A third card may be dealt to either hand in accordance with the drawing rules listed below, however if either the player and/or banker have a total of 8 or 9, they both stand. This rule overrides all other rules for card drawings.
|POINT VALUE OF FIRST 2 CARDS||DECISION|
|0-1-2-3-4-5||Draws another card|
|8-9||‘Natural hand’ no further draws|
|POINT VALUE OF FIRST 2 CARDS||DRAWS WHEN THE PLAYERS’S 3RD CARD IS||DOES NOT DRAW WHEN THE PLAYER’S 3RD CARD IS|
|0-1-2||Always draws a card|
|8-9||‘Natural hand’ no further draw|
After the hands are complete the game pays the winning bets according to the following rules:
|Player||1 to 1|
|Banker||1 to 1 (Banker tax of 50% of bet when bank wins with 6)|
|Tie||8 to 1|
|Banker/Player Pair||11 to 1|
|Super 6||15 to 1|
The tie bet is an optional bet that is betting on the banker and player scores being the same. The tie bet pays at odds of 9 to 1.
The player and banker pair bet is an optional side bet that is betting on either the player or the banker getting a pair in with their first two cards. The pair bet pays at odds of 12-1.
The banker six bet is another optional side bet that is betting that the banker will WIN with a score of six. This can be viewed as a kind of insurance wager that players will make due to the game taking 50% of the banker bet when the bank wins on 6, or as an additional side bet. The banker six side bet pays at odds of 15:1.
