Ultimate Texas Hold 'Em

The objective of Ultimate Texas Hold’em is to beat the dealer, not other players, in a game of Texas Hold’em.Rules

Play begins with players posting equal bets in the Ante and Blind circles on the layout. An additional side bet may be made by placing a bet in the Trips area.

The dealer then shuffles a standard 52-card deck and deals two private cards known as Hole cards or Pocket cards facedown to each player.

Betting begins after these are dealt and players can check or bet three to four times the Ante by placing the bet in the circle labeled Play.

The dealer flips three cards over for the Flop.

If players have not bet, they can again check or bet two times the Ante bet.

The dealer reveals the Turn and the River, and players who haven’t bet can Fold or bet one time the Ante bet.

Player must make a bet equal to the Ante if they have not yet bet. Otherwise, they must Fold and lose the Ante and Blind bets.

After the River is dealt, the dealer and players will turn over their Hole cards and create their best five-card hand.

If the player’s hand beats the dealer, his/her Ante and Play bets win even money.

If the dealer’s hand beats the player, the player will lose the Ante, Blind and Play bets.

If the player and dealer tie, it is a push.

If a player’s winning hand is a Straight or better, and is better than the dealer’s hand, the Blind bet is paid.

If the player beats the dealer with less than a Straight, the Blind is a push.

If a Trips bet was placed and the player has Trips or better, the bet is paid even if the dealer’s hand beats the player’s hand.

Betting

The earlier the player bets, the more he/she can bet.

Prior to the Flop, a player can bet three to four times the Ante bet.

After the Flop, a player can bet two times the Ante.

After the River, a player who has not bet will bet one time or equal the Ante bet.

Multi-Deck Blackjack

Your goal is to draw cards that total 21, or come closer to 21 than the dealer without going over.

How To Play

The dealer and each player get two cards. The dealer’s first card faces up, the second faces down. Face cards each count as 10, Aces count as 1 or 11, all others count at face value. Any First 2 cards with an Ace with any 10, Jack, Queen, or King is a “Blackjack.”

If you have a Blackjack, the dealer pays you one-and-a-half times your bet – unless the dealer also has a Blackjack, in which case it’s a “push” and neither wins.

If you don’t have a Blackjack, you can ask the dealer to “hit” you by using a scratching motion with your cards on the table.

You may draw as many cards as you like (one at a time), but if you go over 21, you “bust” and lose. If you do not want to “hit,” you may “stand” by tucking your cards just under your wager, or by simply setting them down next to your wager.

After all players are satisfied with their hands, the dealer will turn his or her down card face up and stand or draw as necessary.

Payoff Schedule: All winning bets are paid even money (1 to 1) except for Blackjack, which pays you one-and-a-half times your bet.

Blackjack Playing Options

To increase your chances of winning, or winning a bigger payout, consider the following options:

SPLITTING PAIRS
When you have two cards of the same denomination, you may split the pairs into two separate hands and play each hand individually. You must wager the same amount as your original bet on each split hand. If you have split Aces, you get only one “hit” on each Ace.

DOUBLING DOWN
Consider this if you think you can win with only one additional card. You may wager additional money up to your original bet, and receive one more card. A player has the option of doubling down on any combination of their first two cards as well as after a hand has been split.

INSURANCE
If the dealer’s “up card” is an Ace, you can take insurance. Here you’re betting that the dealer has a Blackjack. You can bet only half your original bet. If the dealer does have a Blackjack, your original bet loses or pushes and the insurance is paid two to one. If the dealer doesn’t have a Blackjack, he takes the insurance bet and the game continues.

Player may not take on an additional card on any total of 21.

Single Deck Blackjack

If you don’t have a Blackjack, you can ask the dealer to “hit” you by using a scratching motion with your cards on the table.
You may draw as many cards as you like (one at a time), but if you go over 21, you “bust” and lose. If you do not want to “hit,” you may “stand” by tucking your cards just under your wager, or by simply setting them down next to your wager.

DOUBLING DOWN
Consider this if you think you can win with only one additional card. You may wager additional money up to your original bet, and receive one more card. A player has the option of doubling down only if their first two cards have a total of 10 or 11. Players may not double after a hand has been split.

Golden 21 Blackjack

Golden 21 is an optional side bet to the game of blackjack. Players are given the opportunity to place a Golden 21 wager at the same time they would make a traditional Blackjack wager. After all wagers have been placed, the dealer will deal two cards to each player and two cards to his or herself in a traditional Blackjack manor. At this point the dealer will pay any player that has made a Golden 21 wager that has a winning combination. A winning combination is either a blackjack, suited blackjack, two card straight, a pair, a two card straight flush, or the Golden 21 blackjack (A/K suited). A player can win regardless of the dealer’s hand. After all Golden 21 wagers have been settled, play resumes as a traditional game of blackjack. Payouts for winning combinations are posted at the table.

Fortune Pai Gow with Pai Gow’d side bet

Fortune Pai Gow Poker combines elements of the ancient Chinese game of Pai Gow and the American game of poker. The game is played with a traditional deck of 52 playing cards, plus one joker. The joker can be used only to complete any straight or any flush or as an ace.

Object of the Game

Each player at the table is dealt seven cards, which the player arranges to make two hands; a two-card hand and five-card hand. The five-card hand must always rank higher than the two-card hand. To win the wager, the player’s two-card hand must rank higher than the banker’s two-card hand and the player’s five-card hand must rank higher than the banker’s five-card hand. If the player’s hand wins, the player will be paid even money less a 5% commission. The dealer will collect the commission when the winning wager is paid. Should a player’s hand rank exactly the same as the banker’s hand, this is a tie. Ties are also called copy hands and the banker wins all copy hands.

If the player wins one hand but loses the other, this is considered a push and no money is won or lost.

Rules to Remember

Once the player has set their high and low hand and placed them face down on the layout, the player may not touch the cards again. Players are not allowed to show or discuss their cards with other players, while setting their hands.

Any player’s hand set incorrectly (e.g. the two-card hand ranks higher than the five-card hand, or the player puts three cards in one hand and four cards in the other) is known as a fouled hand. Fouled hands are an automatic loss. Players are responsible for arranging their own hand and should do so with care.
The house banker must set their cards according to house ways. If an error is found, the hand must be reset according to the house way.

Fortune Pai Gow Game Basics

Fortune Pai Gow is an optional bonus game that considers the best possible hand among the player’s seven cards. A Fortune Bonus wager of at least $5 qualifies for Envy Bonus payouts. Players win the Envy Bonus when someone else at the table receives a four-of-a-kind or higher.

Fortune Bonus Game Play

To begin each round, players make their standard Pai Gow wagers and the optional Fortune Bonus wager. If a player wagers at least $5 on the Fortune Bonus, the dealer will place an envy button next to it. The dealer then follows house procedures for Pai Gow Poker. While reconciling the standard Pai Gow wagers, the dealer also reconciles Fortune Bonus bets. If the playerís hand qualifies for payouts, the dealer pays him according to the posted pay table. If the player’s hand does not qualify the dealer takes his Fortune wager.
The dealer pays any Envy Bonuses at the end of the round. If at least one player has a four-of-a-kind or higher, all players with envy buttons win an amount based on the Envy Bonus pay table. In the event more than one player has at least four-of-a-kind, then all players with envy buttons win multiple payouts.
Note: A player cannot win Envy Bonuses for his or her own hand(s) or the dealers hand.
