Roulette

Roulette is the most glamorous of casino games and no fun casino night would be complete without a Roulette table. It’s the easiest game to pick up and play and it will be a hit throughout.

A few basic instructions...

Getting your chips.

Change your ‘Fun’ money at the Roulette table for coloured chips, everyone will usually have different coloured chips, this helps you quickly identify your bets and if you've won.

Choosing your bet.

There are various ways to play. You can place a bet on a single number, with odds of 35 to 1 or play the even chance bets, black, red, even, odd, etc.

Placing your bets.

Put your chips on an appropriate number or box, the croupier will spin the wheel & give three announcement’s so you & your guests are aware when to start and stop placing bets.

Winning or losing.

When the ball drops into the winning number it will be marked on the table with a “dolly” the croupier will then pay the winning bets at varying odds.

These are the basics for playing the game, there are other betting combinations you can make, other than straight numbers. If you're interested, click the button below...

Blackjack

Blackjack is certainly another one of those must-have games, at your fun casino event! It is a variation of Pontoon and one of the most popular card games, whether you are a novice or more experienced player.

A few basic instructions...

The objective.

The essence of Blackjack is to get as close to 21 as you can and beat the dealer. Over 21 and you lose! You are not playing the other players - just the dealer.

Getting your chips.

Change your ‘Fun’ money at the Blackjack table for coloured chips.

Placing your bets.

Place your casino chip/s in the lined box on the playing surface in front of you. The dealer will run their finger along the insurance line to ensure that all bets have been placed. This is the sign that the hand will start.

The game.

The dealer will deal two cards face up to each player and just one face up to themselves. Each player will then be asked, in turn, if they would like any more cards. The dealer will deal you a face up card and keep asking if you want another until you Stand (hold your total and end your turn) or your total is over 21 and you are Bust (and end that hand). Picture Cards have a value of 10 and Aces 1 or 11. If you are dealt 21 from the start, an Ace and a card with the value of 10, then you have Blackjack and that will pay odds of 3:2.

Winning or losing.

Once all players have been asked, the dealer will then deal their cards, taking cards up to a total of 16 and cannot take any more cards once their total reaches 17 or more and must also stay under 21. Any total they have under 21 will take out any player with a lower total, if you have the same total you get your wager back and they will pay out on any number over their total but under 21. Payout is equivalent to what you stake.

There are some other more complex ways to play your hand, Double Down, Split and Surrender. If you want to find out more then click the button below...

Poker

There are a number of variations when it comes to playing poker. For this reason if you want us to provide a poker table then we will ask you which game you wish to play. Casino Stud Poker is one of the easiest and friendliest of poker games, in which the players are trying to get a higher hand than the dealer’s hand – they are not competing against each other.

A few basic instructions...

The objective.

Casino Stud is played at a table and the attraction of the game is the high pay-off if you get a good hand which qualifies for improved odds (see table below).

Getting your chips.

Change your ‘Fun’ money at the Poker table for coloured chips.

Placing your bets.

To play, each player places his or her bet on a marked spot on the table playing surface. Each player also has the option to participate in the progressive “jackpot” feature of the game (for odds see the table below). This must be done in a separate marked area and before the dealer announces "No more bets".

The game.

Each player and the dealer will then receive their cards, face down. The dealer will turn over one of his cards, after which the players may look at their cards. This is then how Stud Poker unfolds:

1.

Each player decides or bluffs whether to continue playing. Players have the option to either play or fold.

2.

Any player choosing to play places their raise, an additional wager equal to twice the amount of their initial bet, into the box marked Bet. Any player who chooses to fold forfeits their ante. After all the players have made their decisions, the dealer reveals his/her face down cards. The dealer only qualifies (plays) if his hand either contains both an ace and a king or forms a pair or any higher-ranked poker hand (see table below).

3.

The dealer then compares his hand to those of the individual players. Both the ante and the raised bets of the players, whose hands beat the dealer's hand, win. If they do not beat the dealer's hand, they lose all bets.

4.

If a player ties with the dealer, both ante and raise bets return to their respective players with no additional money won (called a Push). If the dealer's hand does not qualify, the ante bets of players get paid even money while the respective raise bets are all Push so they get their stake back.

Payout.

if a player's cards beat the dealer's cards, the player will receive even money (1-1) on the ante. The table below is for 5 card stud and the players will win the following on their bet:

Royal flush

100 to 1

Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10 – all of the same suit.

Straight flush

50 to 1

Five of the same suit, in sequence (e.g. 5 to Ace).
