Black Jack is played with 1 to 6 decks of cards. Cards are dealt to the players who are trying to beat the dealer. Each player starts with 2 cards and can hit or stand with two. An ace with a King, Queen, Jack or a ten is blackjack. If you choose to hit on your two cards, anything over 21 is a bust and anything under 21, if it is better than the dealers hand wins. The dealer must hit on a 16 and stand on a 17. If both dealers and player end up with the same amount, it is called a push. Player does not win or lose. Split and double downs are at the player’s discretion. Insurance is generally not played with our casino fun nights. Blackjack is our most popular game and is a must at any casino event.
Roulette is played with 38 numbers on a wheel. Players can place chips in various betting areas with the odds paid being different for each bet. The wheel is what determines who wins. The dealer will spin the wheel one direction and the ball the other, as soon as the ball touches a deflector on the wheel betting stops. The dealer will mark the number hit and the table is closed until all bets are paid or taken and the dealer has removed the marker. Betting then resumes again with the next spin. Roulette is a fun and fast game which adds variety to an event.
Craps is a game played with two dice. A designated player (shooter) throws the dice against the opposite wall of the table which he/she is standing. After each roll, the dealer calls out the number combination rolled, takes the losing bets, and pays the winning bets. Common names for certain dice combinations are snake eyes or aces (2), box-cars (12), yo (11), and craps (2, 3, or 12). The game of craps consists of many different bets for players to choose. Each bet pays different odds based upon its probability of winning versus losing.
The most common bet in Craps is Pass Line, also known as betting the shooter. On the first roll of the dice, called the Come Out Roll, the Pass Line wins on a 7 or 11, loses on 2, 3, or 12 (craps). If the shooter rolls one of the other 6 possible combinations (4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10) that number becomes his/her point which he/she must then roll again before a 7 to win. While on appoint, no other numbers affect the Pass Line except the Point (wins) and 7 loses, (also known as 7 out). Other bets related to the Pass Line include Odds (an additional bet on the Point). Don’t pass line (the exact opposite of Pass Line), except 12 on the Come Out Roll is a push (doesn’t win or lose). Come and Don’t Come (same rules as Pass Line), except the player bets it while the shooter is on point and the next roll of the dice serves as its come out roll. A Place bet is where the player picks his/her number (s) probability of winning. Place bets and Come/Don’t Come Odds bets are OFF (do not win or lose) on the Come Out Roll, but Come/Don’t Come bets are always ON.
Craps also includes a number of one-roll bets, which always wins or lose on the next roll of the dice the odds vary for each bet. One-roll bets are 2, 3, 11, 12, any seven, any craps (2 ,3, 12) and the field 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 12. The field pays even money except on 2 & 12 (pays double). Other bets include the Hardways, names for the even numbers that can be rolled (doubles) 4, 6, 8, & 10. Hardways win when the number rolls Hard (doubles) and lose when the number is rolled Easy (not a double). Hardways also lose when a 7 rolls. Hardway bets are Off on the Come Out Roll. This short overview of Craps is to give you an idea of how much fun this game can add to an event. It is an easy game to learn and a hard one to quit!
