Baccarat Gold
Baccarat Gold
Baccarat Gold is a baccarat variant found in some poker-based casinos in the Los Angeles and San Francisco areas. In addition to making the rules slightly easier to recall, the changes also add a decision-taking element to the game and make the House edge on the Banker hand and the Player hand more similar. Most of the rules of Baccarat Gold follow those of the standard game with eight decks in play, but with a few important differences. Borrowing a rule from Chemin de Fer, the person in control of the Player hand has the opportunity to take a decision when holding a two-card total of five—hit or stand. This compares to the conventional rule whereby the Player hand must hot on totals of five or less and stand on totals of six or more. For the Banker hand, the rules have also been changed. Whenever the Player hand draws a third card, the Banker hand must draw on a total of zero to three and stand on a total of six or seven. When the Banker had totals four of five, a draw is required only if the third card of the Player hand is 3~7; otherwise, the Banker will stand. This compares to the rather complicated chart of rules that must be memorised to determine the action of the Banker hand in standard play. The conventional “Ties” side bet is available in Baccarat Gold, but the payout has been increased from 8 to 1 up to 9 to 1. This, combined with the changes in drawing rules, reduces the House edge on Tie wagers from 14.36% down to 7.55% when the Player hand stands on a two-card total of five or 4.91% when the hand draws.

Blackjack
Blackjack
Blackjack is a comparing card game between a player and dealer, meaning players compete against the dealer but not against other players. It is played with one or more decks of 52 cards. The objective of the game is to beat the dealer in one of the following ways: Get 21 points on the player's first two cards (called a "blackjack" or "natural"), without a dealer blackjack; Reach a final score higher than the dealer without exceeding 21; or Let the dealer draw additional cards until his or her hand exceeds 21.

Pai Gow
Pai Gow
Pai gow is a Chinese gambling game, played with a set of 32 Chinese dominoes. Tiles are shuffled on the table and are arranged into eight face-down stacks of four tiles each in an assembly known as the woodpile. Individual stacks or tiles may then be moved in specific ways to rearrange the woodpile, after which the players place their bets. Next, each player (including the dealer) is given one stack of tiles and must use them to form two hands of two tiles each. The hand with the lower value is called the front hand, and the hand with the higher value is called the rear hand. If a player's front hand beats the dealer's front hand, and the player's rear hand beats the dealer's rear hand, then that player wins the bet. If a player's front and rear hands both lose to the dealer's respective hands, the player loses the bet. If one hand wins and the other loses, the player is said to push, and gets back only the money he or she bet. Generally seven players will play, and each player's hands are compared only against the dealer's hands. WikipediaOpen in New Window
Poker
Poker
Poker is a family of card games that combine gambling, strategy, and skill . All poker variants involve betting as an intrinsic part of play, and determine the winner of each hand according to the combinations of players' cards, at least some of which remain hidden until the end of the hand. Poker games vary in the number of cards dealt, the number of shared or "community" cards, the number of cards that remain hidden, and the betting procedures. WikipediaOpen in New Window
Three Card Poker
Three Card Poker
Three Card Poker incorporates two modes of play. The Ante and Play wagers play in competition on the player hand against the dealer hand. The Pair Plus wager is paid on a pay scale basis that the player hand will be a pair or better. In most casinos both the Ante and the Pair Plus are optional, but there are some casinos in which the Ante is mandatory. After all Ante and Pair Plus wagers are placed, three cards are dealt to each player and the dealer. Players that have placed the Ante wager have a choice to either fold or continue in the game by placing a Play wager equal to the Ante. Hands are then exposed and wagers resolved. The dealer hand must be Queen high or better for the dealer hand to play. If the dealer does not play, then there is no action on Play wagers and Ante wagers are paid 1 to 1. If the dealer does play, the dealer and player hands are compared. If the player hand loses, both the Ante and Play wagers lose. If the player hand wins both the Ante and Play wagers are paid 1 to 1. If the hands are tied, then there is no action on the Ante and Play wagers. An additional feature is the Ante Bonus, which is paid to the Ante wager for a straight or better. The Ante Bonus is paid on a pay scale and is paid regardless of whether the dealer plays and regardless of whether the dealer or the player has the best hand. The typical Ante Bonus paytable pays 5 to 1 for a straight flush, 4 to 1 for a three of a kind, and 1 to 1 for a straight. The Pair Plus wager loses if the player has less than a pair and wins with a pair or better. The payoff applies regardless of the dealer hand, as the Pair Plus wager is not in competition against the dealer hand WikipediaOpen in New Window
