Chips can be purchased from the Croupier. Each player receives chips of a specific colour to facilitate the identification of bets placed. Colour chips may not be taken from the table. Upon finishing play, or taking a pause, the player must ask the Croupier to change all colour chips into value chips. The value chips may be used as payment at other tables or cashed in at a designated place.
Bets may be placed on even chances (red/black, odd/even, 1–18/19–36), on dozens, columns, numbers or any combination of numbers. The player can increase his/her possible winnings by placing several chips on the same number.
Should zero (0) win, all bets on even chances, columns and dozens lose.
Players must place their bets before the Croupier calls “No more bets, please!” Call bets are not accepted. Players are responsible for ensuring that their bets are placed correctly. Only house chips may be used. Incorrect bets are void. The minimum and maximum bets permitted are displayed at each table. The part of a bet that exceeds the table limit is void.
In disputes, the Croupier’s decision is final.
Each player plays against the Dealer only. The object of the game is to draw cards totalling 21 or as close to 21 as possible. If the player exceeds 21, the bet is lost. If the Dealer exceeds 21, all hands still in play win. The Dealer must draw more cards on 16 or less, and must stand on 17 or more.
Aces count as 1 or 11, picture cards (jack, queen and king count as 10 and other cards (2–10) by face value.
If the player’s total is closer to 21 than the Dealer’s, the player wins 1:1. If the player’s first two cards total 21 (ace + 10 or ace + picture card), this is Black Jack and the player is paid 3:2 (1.5 times the bet). If the player and the dealer tie, the Dealer wins, except in cases where both have 20, 21 or Black Jack. This results in a stand off, whereby the player keeps the staked sum. Black Jack beats 21.
If the first two cards dealt are of equal value, the player may split the cards into two separate hands. An additional bet equal to the size of the original bet must be made on the new hand. Cards may be split several times and a split hand can also be doubled. Split aces receive only one additional card for each hand, except if the player is dealt an ace, which can be further split. Black Jack is not possible in a split game.
The player may double the bet, if the first two cards total 7, 8, 9, 10 or 11. At this point, the player only gets one additional card. The table limit may be exceeded in this case. Black Jack can be doubled down, in which case it is 11, and one additional card is dealt. If the player wants to double down a so called soft hand (ace + another card), the value of the ace is 1. For example, ace + 8 + 2 = 11.
If the Dealer’s first card is an ace, the player may insure the placed bet against Black Jack. If the player wishes to insure the hand, a bet equal to half the actual bet is placed on the Insurance Line. If the Dealer draws Black Jack, the player keeps both the bet and the insurance bet. If the Dealer fails to draw Black Jack, the player loses the insurance bet and the game continues. The insurance bet may only be placed after all players have been dealt the additional cards, not after the basic deal. An exceeded game cannot be insured. Black Jack cannot be insured.
If the player has Black Jack and the Dealer’s first card is an ace, the player may request Even Money right after the initial deal. Thus the player avoids a stand off, if the Dealer also gets Black Jack. A player choosing Even Money will receive a payout immediately: payout 1:1 instead of the normal 3:2.
Players are allowed to play several boxes at the same time. However, the Dealer has the right to limit the number of boxes played by any one player. The Dealer’s decision is final. The Dealer will be happy to provide you with further information if needed.
