Game Overview

The game of Roulette is played by spinning a small ball on a round wheel with thirty-seven numbered slots. When the wheel stops, the ball comes to rest in one of these slots. The object of Roulette is to correctly predict the slot in which the ball will land. By predicting the right number, you earn a payoff on your bet. The size of the payoff depends on the nature of the bet placed.

Auto-Roulette

In AUTO-ROULETTE the interactive image of the roulette table is seamlessly integrated with a video stream of an actual roulette wheel, filmed live by a camera mounted above it. Auto-Roulette is designed to give the most natural and authentic gaming experience available online!

The Auto-Roulette wheel is fully automated and is powered by compressed air. Once every minute a new round begins and the roulette ball is launched by a variably powered jet of air providing completely random game results; the roulette ball has an equal chance of landing on any of the 37 numbers on the roulette wheel. The wheel is ordered non-sequentially from 0-36, with the numbers 1-36 coloured either black or red and the 0 coloured green. When the ball comes to rest the winning number is determined by laser positioning sensors that identify where the ball has landed.

Blackjack

The most popular of all casino card games. The aim of the game is to beat the dealer. You do this by making a hand that has a value of closer to 21 than the dealer's hand. You can also win if the dealer's hand goes over 21 (bust). Be careful though because if your hand goes above 21 you will lose automatically. This version of blackjack is played with 8 decks of cards, which you will see the dealer shuffle at regular intervals.

Once the game has loaded you need to choose your seat at the table. Seats are numbered from one to seven. Sit at the table by clicking on any available seat displaying the SIT HERE sign.

To place a bet, select your chip value from the BANK window and then click directly on the table to bet.

Important - In order for your bets to be accepted you need to click the Confirm button in the BANK window before the timer runs out, otherwise your bets will be removed. If a game is already in progress you will need to wait for it to complete before you can play. When the game begins all players will be dealt 2 cards face up, the dealer will also get 2 cards although one will be face down.

Card Value

The cards all take their face value with the exception of any court or picture cards (Jacks, Queens and Kings) which all value 10, and Aces which value either 1 or 11 depending on which will give the player the best hand. If the first 2 cards dealt to you total 21 (an Ace and a 10) you have blackjack. Blackjack wins pay 3 to 2 on the player's original stake. Other wins pay at 1 to 1. Each player takes turns to act on his or her hand, starting from the player at the right. When it is your turn to act you will be presented with a number of options:

  • Stand - You wish to take no further action on your hand.
  • Hit - You wish to take another card to try to improve the value of your hand. This option can be used multiple times.
  • Double - You wish to double the amount you have bet on your hand and receive one further card only.
  • Split - This option is only available if your first 2 cards are of the same value. By choosing this option you will double your bet and receive two more cards. This effectively gives you 2 hands to play. Please note if you split Aces you are only dealt one more card to each hand and cannot hit for extra cards. 21 hit after splitting is not blackjack as the cards are not the first 2 dealt, and therefore only pays 1 to 1. You are not able to split hands more than once.
  • Once all players have acted the dealer will turn over their face down card. If their hand is valued below 16 they must deal another card. They continue to take cards until their hand is valued at 17 or higher. When the dealer has a hand of between 17 and 21, he will pay all players with a hand closer to 21 than his own. If the player's hand is the same value as the dealer's, the hand is a push or a tie, and the player keeps his stake. If the dealers hand busts all remaining players will be paid. 
  • Insurance - If the dealers face up card is an ace all players are offered an insurance bet. This bet is half the player's stake. In the event that the dealer has blackjack this bet will pay at 2 to 1. If the dealer does not have blackjack the bet is lost and the hands play as normal.

Game Features

If you wish to talk to the dealer or the supervisor you can open the chat window by clicking the button at the bottom of the screen. The window can be moved or re-sized if you wish.

Baccarat

In the game of Baccarat players bet on which of 2 hands, the player’s (Player) or the banker’s (Banker), will be closest in value to 9 or if the hands will be tied (Tie). The game is played with 8 decks of cards, which are shuffled regularly by the dealer.

Card value

  • Ace = 1
  • Face cards and tens = 0

All other cards carry the point value stated on the card. If the cards in a hand total more than ten points, simply subtract ten to obtain the baccarat point value of the hand.(Example: 8+8=16, but counts as 6. Jack+7=17, but counts as 7.)

A two-card total of nine is the best hand and is called a "Natural". The second-best hand is a "Natural" 8. 

If both the player and banker are dealt identical hands, the game ends in a Tie.

To place a bet, select your chip value from the BANK window and then click directly on the Player, Tie or Banker areas on the table. Once the timer has run down the dealer will begin dealing the cards. If there is a game in progress you will need to wait until it has completed before placing a bet.

The dealer will deal 2 cards for the player’s hand and two for the banker’s hand. If the value of either hand is 8 or 9 (a natural) the hand is complete and no further cards are dealt. Otherwise cards are dealt by the third card rules below.

The Player’s hand - Depending on the point value of the first two cards, the following actions will take place (Third card rule):

Blackjack

Introduction

Welcome to the finest live dealer gaming experience in the world.

You can change Blackjack table or select any other live game at any time by pressing the LIVE GAMES MENU button in the lobby. You will not be removed from this table until you have actually selected the new table you wish to join, so the LIVE LOBBY can be used to browse other games whilst still playing at this table.

The game screen consists of a black toolbar at the bottom of the screen and then the gaming window (showing the live video) above.

In the gaming window there are a number of key elements: see the Screen elements section.

How To Play

The Object of the Game

The object is to achieve a higher card count than the croupier without exceeding a count of 21.

The Bet

Select the seat and left click on chip value(s) you want to place and click on your seat position. Each click on the seat position will add another chip to the bet.

The Play

Beginning on the croupier's left, a card is dealt face up to each player in turn with the croupier being last in rotation.

A second card is then dealt in the same manner, face up to each player and the croupier gets a hidden card. Once all initial cards are dealt, each player gets a turn to improve their counts. The order of the turns is the same as the order the cards were dealt. During your turn, you have the option of standing or hitting (drawing) one or more cards to improve your count. Once you stand, your turn is over.

If you exceed a count of 21, this is called a bust, and you lose your bet immediately; otherwise, your bet remains unresolved.

If your initial count (with two cards) is 21, this is called a Blackjack. You are not allowed to draw (hit) on a Blackjack. If there is no possibility that the croupier also has a Blackjack (that is, the croupier's card is neither a face card, a Ten, nor an Ace), then you win your bet immediately upon the start of your turn, and your bet is paid off at 3 to 2. If there is a possibility that the croupier also has a Blackjack, the resolution of your bet is delayed until the croupier's final count is established.

 

After all players have had a turn, the croupier turns the hidden card over, then stands or draws as appropriate, according to the house strategy. If the croupier exceeds a count of 21, she busts, and all unresolved bets are winners.

If she stands without busting, each player's count is then compared to the croupier's. If your count is closer to 21 than the croupier's, you win. If the croupier's is closer, you lose. If you and the croupier tie, the bet is a push (a standoff), which means you neither win your bet nor lose it. Once all bets have been resolved, the croupier announces the beginning of the next betting period.

The Cards

Face cards (Jacks, Queens, and Kings) are worth 10, while Aces are worth 1 or 11. After a player has stood, a hand containing one or more Aces is considered to be at its highest possible value without exceeding 21.

Player Options

After the first two cards are dealt, each player gets an opportunity to improve their counts. They may also alter their wagers in the following ways:

Splitting Pairs:

Pairs, two cards of equal value, may be split into two separate hands (sub hands), each with a bet equal to the original bet amount. If you split your hand, the second card, for both sub hands, is dealt immediately after the split is made and you are permitted to stand or hit one or more cards to improve the count.

Once you stand on your first sub hand, your second sub hand is dealt a second card, and you are then permitted to stand or hit on that hand. Split aces are an exceptional case.

When you split a pair of Aces, each sub hand receives exactly one additional card with no option to you to hit. Further, a count of 21 with the two cards in a sub hand of split Aces is not consider blackjack, and will lose to a croupier's Blackjack.

Doubling Down:

After the first two cards are dealt, you have the option to double down, which means you wager an additional amount equal to your original bet and receive exactly one more card on that hand. However, you aren't allowed double down after splitting a pair.

Insurance:

If the croupier's 1st card is an Ace, you may obtain insurance, which is a wager of a sum equal to one half of your original bet. If the croupier draws a Blackjack, the insurance pays two to one. If the croupier fails to draw a Blackjack, you lose your insurance. You may obtain insurance even if you have Blackjack.

The House Strategy:

Unlike the players, the house has no choice in whether it hits or stands its hand. The house must: Hit on a count of 16 or less; Stand on 17 or more. A soft hand is a hand in which an Ace may be counted as either 1 or 11 without the count exceeding 21.

A hard hand is a hand in which all Aces may only be counted as 1 each to avoid the count exceeding 21. * If there are any mistakes between hands, we will push the hand.

 

 

Payouts:

A Blackjack, a two-card 21 not arising on split Aces, is paid at three to two as long as the croupier does not also have a Blackjack. If both you and the croupier have a Blackjack, the bet is a push. A Blackjack beats any three-or-more-card 21. All other winning bets are paid at one to one. A croupier/ player tie is a push and neither wins nor loses. You bust and lose your bet with a card count exceeding 21.

Blackjack = 99.59%

Bet Behind Table

Introduction

The Blackjack Bet Behind table allows you to place bets on real players sitting at the table. When they win, you win. It's as simple as that.
Here you can place bets on as many of the players as you wish. The game you are betting on is actually the Public Blackjack table.
If you bet on a player who chooses not to bet, your bet will be refunded immediately.

Double down / Split

During the game, the player you are betting on may decide to double down or split. If you have not cleared the checkboxes on the introduction screen, then your stake will automatically double and be deducted from your account. Should you wish to change this and NOT double your stake, you need to leave and re-enter the table and then untick the checkboxes on the introduction screen.

The Play

To place your bets, left click on the chip you wish to wager and then click on the yellow bet behind betspot(s) that you wish to use. You will not be asked to confirm your bets.

There will not be any limit for the number of players that can bet behind on a particular seat.

The seated player will make all play decisions like hit, stand, split and double down. You will only be prompted if you want insurance. This is a wager of a sum equal to one half of your original bet. If the croupier draws a Blackjack, the insurance pays two to one. If the croupier fails to draw a Blackjack, you lose your insurance. You may obtain insurance even if the player you are betting on has Blackjack.
Should the player you are betting on decide to split and you have taken the option NOT to double your stake (You cleared the checkbox), then your bet will only apply to the hand on the left.

Side Bets

Blackjack Side Bets: Perfect Pairs and 21+3

Live blackjack is one of the most exciting ways to enjoy casino classic and with some amazing betting options, there are multiple ways to collect winnings from these games. With these bets, players can win more and enjoy many returns on the initial wagers that are placed. With side bet options, players will enjoy an enhanced game and will grow their bank roll, even if they lose the main hand in the game. There are two different side bet options that are Perfect Pairs and 21+3.

Perfect Pair Side Bet

Perfect Pairs is a Blackjack side bet that is made prior to any cards being dealt and must be supported by a regular Blackjack bet on the same betting box.

There are 3 different types of pairs and the payout odds vary accordingly:

Mixed pair (A pair that is made up of 1 red suited card and 1 black suited card - example 2 of clubs + 2 of hearts)

 

Coloured pair (A pair that is made up of 2 same cards of the same colour but are of different suits - example 6 of clubs + 6 of spades)

Perfect Pair (An identical pair - example K of diamonds + K of diamonds)

The rules for Perfect Pairs are as follows:

A player may place a Perfect Pairs wager on any box on which the player has placed a Blackjack wager - A Perfect Pairs wager must be placed before any cards in the round of play are dealt - A Perfect Pairs wager wins if the first 2 cards dealt to the player are a pair - A Perfect Pairs wager loses if the first 2 cards dealt to the player are not a pair

Winning Perfect Pairs wagers must be paid as per the displayed pay table

After each player has been dealt the first 2 cards, the dealer must take all losing Perfect Pairs wagers and make a payout to each player who has a winning Perfect Pairs wager

The dealer then goes on to deal with each player in the usual way for Blackjack

Perfect Pairs are paid out based on the odds below:

Perfect Pair pays 25 to 1

Coloured Pair pays 12 to 1

Mixed Pair pays 6 to 1

21+3 Side bet

At the start of play, as the players are placing their initial wager, they may also play the 21+3 wager in the designated area

Players must make a primary Blackjack wager and cannot make a 21+3 wager only.

Once all players have placed their bets, a round of Blackjack is dealt in the standard fashion - the dealer deals two cards face up to each participating player, and to themselves in the same manner as regular Blackjack (1 card face up, 1 card face down for the dealer)

Once the dealer has dealt two cards to each player and two cards to themselves (1 up, 1 down), the game will show if a player has won on 21+3. A player will only be awarded for one winning event, although their 3 card hand may contain more than 1 winning event (e.g. three of a kind suited)

Hands are ranked in the following order:

Flush -Three cards of the same suit (three hearts, three clubs).Payout: 5 to 1

Straight -Three cards in sequence but not the same suit (Ace can be used to achieve an Ace, 2, 3, Straight or Ace, King, Queen Straight).Payout: 10 to 1

Three of a Kind -Three cards of the same rank. Payout: 30 to 1

Straight Flush -Three cards in sequence and the same suits (spade of 10, Jack, Queen). Payout: 40 to 1

Suited Trips -Three cards of same ranking and of same suits, e.g. 3 Queens of Hearts. Payout: 100 to 1

Side Bet House Edge

For Perfect Pairs, theoretical return to player is 95.90%…or expressed differently the casino has a 4.1% house edge.

For 21+3, theoretical return to player is 96.30%…house edge of 3.7%.

Baccarat

Introduction

Welcome to the finest live dealer gaming experience in the world.

You can change BACCARAT table or select any other live games at any time by pressing the LIVE GAMES MENU button in the lobby. You will not be removed from this table until you have actually selected the new table you wish to join, so the LIVE LOBBY can be used to browse other games whilst still playing at this current table.

The game screen consists of a black toolbar at the bottom of the screen and the gaming window (showing the live video) above.

In the gaming window there are a number of key elements: see Screen elements section.

How To Play

The Object of the Game

Two hands are dealt in Baccarat - The Banker's hand and the Player's hand. Prior to each deal, the player wagers on whether the Player's hand or the Banker's hand will be closest to a total of 9. The player also has the option to wager on a tie (i.e. both the banker's and player's hands total the same). 8 decks of 52 cards are used.

Betting

Select the amount you would like to wager on a given hand by clicking the left mouse button on a chip and left clicking on the "Player", "Banker" or "Tie" sections of the gaming table. Each click on the betspot position will add another chip to the bet.

REPEAT: If you bet in the previous game round, you can click the REPEAT button to automatically place the same bets in this round. (Providing you have a sufficient cash balance)

DOUBLE:  If the REPEAT button has been selected, the player is given the option to automatically double the stake placed.

UNDO:  Selecting the UNDO button will remove your bet chips one by one from the game table in the reverse order of their placement. Click UNDO once to remove the last chip placed, or several times to keep removing the bets that have been placed.

If you place a wager that is lower than the minimum table bet limit, you will receive a pop up message when the betting period is over and your bet will be rejected.

If you place a bet that is higher than the maximum table limit, a tooltip will appear reminding you of the maximum bet limit and you will not be able to place that bet.

GAMEPLAY:

After the betting time period has expired, the Player and Banker are dealt two cards.

Example: Hand + Hand = Total

9+7 = 16 = 6

5+5+5 = 15 = 5

10+9 = 19 = "Natural" 9

After the first two cards are dealt to both the Player and Banker, the "Third Card Rule" (See Below) will determine if a 3rd card is to be dealt. No hand receives more than three cards.

When the Player and Banker hands equal the same total, the hand is declared a Tie and all bets (other than Tie bets) for that game are voided. If the value of the cards in either the Player's Hand or the Banker's Hand is an 8 or a 9 (a "natural") after receiving their initial two cards, then no more cards shall be dealt to either hand.

If the value of the cards in either hand on the first two cards is 0 to 7 inclusive, the hands shall draw in accordance with the "Third Card Rules".

Third Card Rules:

For the Player's Hand to Draw

If the Player's two cards total:

0-5 Player's hand must draw

6-7 Player's hand must stand

8-9 "Natural" (Both hands stand)

For the Banker's Hand to Draw

If the Banker's two cards total:

0-2 Banker's hand must draw

3-6 Third card to Player's hand determines draw or stand

7 Banker's hand must stand

8-9 "Natural" (Both hands stand)

When the Banker's third card decision depends on the third card drawn by the Player, the following rules apply:

If the Player's hand stands on two cards (6, 7), then a two card Banker hand totalling 3, 4, 5 must draw and a Banker hand totaling 6 must stand.

Payoffs Wager and Result Payoff

    * A winning Player hand wager 1 to 1

    * A winning Banker hand wager .95 to 1

    * A winning Tie wager 8 to 1

    * A winning BIG hand wager .48 to 1

    * A winning Small hand wager 1.34 to 1

 

If you are playing on Super6 table then Banker's payoff wager and result payoff will be:

    * A winning Banker hand wager is 1 to 1

    * A winning Banker hand wager is .5 to 1 if Banker wins with a score of 6

    * A winning Super6 wager is 12 to 1

If you have selected to play at a "pairs" table, you have two additional betting options. You can bet on either the player's or Banker's 1st 2 cards being a pair. The payoff for either bet is 11 to 1.

Screen Elements

The SCORE TABLE board shows your scores.(Only available in the 3D view)

Big Road, Big Eye Road, Small Road, and Cockroach Road are straight score cards. In general, straight score cards allow you to see baccarat streaks and baccarat trends for either the player or the banker. Wins of the same side and ties are shown in one column. Whenever the other side wins, a new column is started. Ties do not break a column because non-tie bets are returned to the player. So, if a tie occurs, you do not lose any money.

Each score card marks the game results using a different pattern. More specifically, the difference lies in the starting point and the results marked. Each player can choose his favourite score card. A new score card is started along with every shoe change. Signs on the score cards carry the following meanings:

Red circle - the banker won that round.

Blue circle - the player won that round.

Green slash - the round ended in a tie.

The BET LIMITS sign shows you the table name and the minimum and maximum stakes permitted. Clicking on the sign will show a breakdown of these limits if applicable.
