Roulette is the most famous and glamorous of all the casino games and no casino entertainment would be complete without a roulette table. Its popularity is due to its speedy game play and easiness to learn for beginners.
There are 37 numbers shown on a large spinning wheel. There is also a casino layout which matches up with those numbers from 0 - 36. The aim of the casino table is simply to accumulate as many casino playing chips as possible, by placing them on either individual numbers or groups of numbers.
Each player receives a different colour casino chip which may be placed until it is announced “no more bets”. Our croupier spins the roulette ball inside the wheel and as the ball begins to drop, our croupier will announce the winning number before placing a marker (dolly) on the winning number on the roulette table layout. They then proceed to take the losing bets and pay the winning bets.
Probably the world’s most popular casino card game, it’s ideal to play for both novices and the more experienced player.
It’s often likened to as a variation of Pontoon. The aim of the card game is to beat our croupier by getting your cards to total twenty-one or as close to twenty-one as possible. If you go over - you automatically lose.
Everyone plays against our croupier who starts each card game by dealing each player two cards and one card to themselves.
To make things more interesting, there are a range of bets including doubling down and splitting pairs. Our croupiers will talk to you about the different options as you play.
You'll probably recognise this fast paced dice game from some casino themed Hollywood Blockbuster. Despite being invented in the UK it's experienced a surge in popularity in the United States, and no self respecting Las Vegas casino would be complete without a Craps table.
Everyone on the table is playing against the casino. To be able to roll the dice the shooter must make a line bet (pass or don't pass bet).
The payout is even money. The shooters first roll is known as the 'come out roll'. If the come out roll is a 7 or 11 the pass line wins and the don't pass loses. If the come out roll is a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10 then that number is known as the shooters 'point'. The shooter will keep rolling until one of two things happen - if they roll the number that they had to set the point the pass line bets win and the don't pass bets lose.
If a 7 is rolled before the point number the pass line loses and the don't pass wins. Either way, the round is over. A new round always begins with the same shooter until he 'sevens out'.
Texas Hold ‘Em
Television coverage and online poker has caused a surge in popularity for this game in the last ten years. It’s a variation of normal poker (the same hands win) but with modifications. Players compete against themselves rather than the dealer.
Each player is dealt two cards and has to make their initial bet based on those. They may make an increased bet (raise), match another player's bet (stand) or drop out of the round (fold). Then three community cards are shown by the dealer in the centre of the table (the flop). All players can use the flop as part of their hand.
Another round of betting occurs and any players still in get to see the next community card (the turn card). Another round of betting takes place and any remaining players get to see the final card (the river). The winner of all bets on the table (the pot) is the one with the best poker hand made up of his own two cards and any cards from the community set. Alternatively, a cunning player may be able to win the pot by bluffing.
Caribbean Stud Poker
This is a simple five card poker game in which the player places a bet in the ante circle which entitles them to receive five cards face down. Our croupier also receives five cards however one of them is face up. The player looks at their cards and decides whether to play or fold. If the player 'plays', then they must bet exactly double the amount of the ante. If the player wishes to fold, they will lose their ante. Once all the players have decided, our croupier reveals their remaining four cards.
The important rule is that the croupier only 'plays' with an Ace and King or higher. If the croupier is in a position to play, they will compare their cards to the player's cards. If the player's cards beat the croupier's cards, the player will receive even money on their initial bet and a multiple amount on the second bet dependent on what sort of poker hand they have.
Three Card Poker
Very similar to Caribbean Stud Poker, it’s fast and fun game that requires little strategy for a player to be successful. You need to beat the dealer by making the best poker hand. The cards are distributed in hands of three, with cards shuffled after each hand. Straights have a higher ranking than a flush, as there are fewer ways to make a three-card straight. Aces can be either high or low.
There are two bets a player can make that will influence the game payout: Ante and Pair Plus. The ante works as it does in conventional poker. This is the cost of playing the hand. The Pair Plus is a wager that the player will get at least a pair or higher. It is not necessary to make both bets, but players must make at least one.
The dealer must have queen high or better in order for their hand to play, once their hand is exposed all wagers are resolved.
