Black Jack Rules
1. The objective of the game is to get closer to a total point count of 21 than the dealer without going over. If you get closer than the dealer without going over 21 or the dealer goes over 21, you win the amount of the bets placed. If the dealer is closer to 21 or you go over 21, you lose. If you and the dealer have a tie, then nobody wins. This is called a push.Each card counts its value (e.g., a card of six has six points), with some exceptions. A jack, queen, or king counts ten points; and an ace can count as either one or eleven points, whichever is more advantageous. The suits have no significance at all.
2. First the cards are dealt. If you have 21 with your first two cards, you win immediately. This combination is called blackjack. If you have a blackjack, you win one and a half times the amount of your bet. If the dealer gets a blackjack, you lose immediately.
Video Poker Rules
1. The video poker machine is based on the five-card poker game. The objective of the game is to get a hand that offers the highest pay-out possible. Different hand types offer different pay-outs. These pay-outs are loosely based on the probability of getting the hand. Generally, the rarer the hand, the higher is its pay-out. The pay-out table which shows the pay-out for each type of hand is displayed at the top of the video poker screen.
2.To begin each round of play the player must make a bet. This bet is taken from the number of credits allocated to the player. After the bet is made, five cards aredealt to the player and are shown on the screen. The player then has the option of holding or discarding as many of these cards as he wants. The cards that he discardsare then replaced with new cards from the deck. This new hand represents the player's final hand. If the hand is good enough to be one of the pay-out hands, the number of credits allocated to the player will immediately be increased by the amount specified in the pay-out table. At this time the machine is waiting for the player to place his next bet to start the process over again.
All you have to do is to guess which hole the spinning ball will drop into, to place your bet on that guess, and to wait for the outcome.
The numbers 1 to 36 plus a zero (and a double zero in American Roulette) are printed on the table. The numbers are laid out in three rows of twelve numbers and a few boxes beside the numbers, called the outside bets. The numbers are divided into three
betting sets of twelve each: the top twelve from 1 to 12, the middle twelve from 13 to 24 and the bottom twelve from 25 to 36. Areas for betting one of these groupings are found on the table. There are also areas for betting red or black, areas for betting odd or even, and areas for betting the first 18 numbers or the last 18 numbers.
The Dealer sees that all bets are down, spins the wheel, and rolls an ivory ball in the opposite direction. He ends the betting after a while calling no more bets. When the ball settles in one of the slots, the dealer places an icon on that number. Now the betting results are taken care of: the dealer removes all chips that did not scratch the winning number and pays off the winners. He removes the icon and the round is over. Next, the players place their new bets for the following spin. Each round can lasts approximately one minute or even less.
