Although originally an Italian game, Baccarat became famous in France in the 15th century. This is considered on of the most glamorous games in a casino.
The player?s objective in Baccarat is to correctly guess which of three possible propositions will win the round: Bank, Player, or Tie.
How to Play
Whichever hand is closest to nine is the winner. Two cards are dealt to the Bank hand and two cards are dealt to the Player hand. Sometimes a third card must be dealt to either or both hands; this depends on the outcome of the first two cards. The player needs not to worry about the third card as the dealer is the one responsible for keeping track of the game.
A parlay is a single bet that links together anywhere from 2 to 15 individual plays. The parlay can be comprised of a series of bets on a team, over/under bets, or any mixture of the two. For the parlay to be a winning wager, every one of its individual plays must win. If any of the individual plays is not a winner, then the entire parlay wager loses.
If, however, one of the individual plays is a ?push,? then the parlay reverts to the next amount of teams. For example, a three play parlay would become a two play parlay; a two play parlay would become a straight bet, with corresponding reductions of the payoff.
Besides the regular Blackjack games that you are used to we also offer these exciting variations of this popular game:
Double exposure is a version of blackjack where both of the dealer?s cards are exposed. There are off course some rule changes to favor the dealer in order to compensate. The house edge is greater than conventional blackjack, but still this game is one of the best bets in the casino if properly played. Double Exposure uses the usual blackjack rules with these main exceptions:
* Both dealer cards are shown face up
* No Pushes. House wins all ties, except on a natural blackjack
* Player blackjack pays even money
* Player may split only once

Blackjack switch allows the player to trade cards between two hands.By default six decks of cards are used. The player needs to make two bets of equal amounts and is then allowed to switch the second card dealt to each hand. In order to compensate for this, a dealer 22 results in a push and blackjacks pay even money. All rules are based on conventional blackjack with these exceptions:
* Dealer hits a soft 17.
* The player must make two bets of equal size.
* Cards will be dealt face up.
* Dealer will peek for blackjack with an ace or ten up. If the dealer has a blackjack all player hands will immediately lose, except a player blackjack will push.
* The player may switch the second card dealt to each hand. The player may also switch cards to form a blackjack.
* Player may double on 10 and 11 only.
* Player may split once.
* Winning player blackjacks pay even money.
* A dealer total of 22 will push against any player total of 21 or less. A player blackjack will still beat a dealer 22.
Spanish Blackjack (also refer to as Spanish 21) is a yet another interesting variation of blackjack. Depending on the rules set by the house Spanish Blackjack is probably a better bet than blackjack.
Spanish 21 uses six decks, each deck consisting of 48 cards, the regular 52 card deck without the four tens. To make up for the advantage that this gives to the house, this game gives the player a set of favorable rules. The game is based on blackjack rules, including double after split, late surrender, and re-splitting aces. In addition Spanish 21 offers the follows rule enhancements:
* A player 21 always wins.
* Player blackjack beats dealer blackjack.
* Player may double on any number of cards.
* Player may usually hit and double down after splitting aces
* Player may surrender half of total bet after doubling down
* A five-card 21 pays 3 to 2, a six-card 21 pays 2 to 1, a seven or more card 21 pays 3 to 1. However the bonuses are not paid if the player doubled.
* A 6-7-8 or 7-7-7 of mixed suits pays 3:2, of the same suit pays 2:1, and of spades pays 3:1.
* Suited 7-7-7 when the dealer has a seven face up pays $1000 for bets of $5-$24 and $5000 for bets of $25 or over.
The objective of the game is to bet on the outcome of the dice, that you as the shooter roll. The payouts outs are made based on the sum of the numbers of the dice once the roll stops. Bets can be based on these two main things:
* The total sum of the numbers on the dice
* That a particular total of the dice before comes up before another total
How to Play
To begin the game, you as the shooter make an initial come out roll, here you must make a Pass Line or a Don?t Pass Bar bet prior to rolling the dice. Depending on your choice for this initial bet, you will aim to roll specific numbers in order to win.
Pai Gow Poker
Pai Gow originated in the 1800?s during the construction of the railroad when the Chinese domino game Gai Gow was combined with American poker. It is a more slow paced game but still offers excitement to the player.
The object of the game is to have a higher ranked five-card and two-card Poker hand than the house.
How to Play
Pai Gow Poker is played using a single deck of standard playing cards including a Joker. You will be dealt 7 cards. These cards must be split into two Poker hands: a two-card front hand and a five-card back hand. You can split your hand however you like but you must follow one simple rule: your back hand must be ranked higher than your front hand. To win, your hands must rank higher than the house?s front and back. If one of your hands wins and one loses, the hand is a push.
Roulette is the perfect example of a game of chance with one objective: Guessing which number will be the next to come up. The Roulette Table consists of a spinning wheel with numbered slots, a small white ball and a betting layout that allows bets to be placed on one or more numbers at a time. There are also side bets in the table. The wheel is spun in one direction and the ball is propelled around the outer edge of the wheel in the opposite direction. Eventually, the ball will decrease in speed and fall toward the spinning wheel where it will bounce around for a while until it lands in one of the numbered slots. If your bet or bets are a ?hit?, the casino pays a variety of odds based on the number of numbers covered by your bet.
How to Play
To play roulette, you place your bet or bets on numbers, rows, or corners of the inside of the table layout or on the outside (see inside outside bets), and click spin. You may select your chip denomination by clicking on the chip/amount of your choice.
