Baccarat

To get started with a game of baccarat and how to play, first sign in at the casino and choose a baccarat table. The dealer will deal two hands: one to you (the player) and one to the banker.


The next steps are:

1. Bet on the deal outcome which will either be that you win, the banker will win or there will be a tie.

2. Two cards will be dealt for you and the banker after the bets have been made.

3. The winning hand will be whichever one is closed to nine.

Video Poker

Video Poker at a casino is a fun game that brings out the best parts of poker and online slots.


Follow these steps for a game of video poker:

1. Choose how much you want to bet and hit the ‘deal’ button to get your first cards.

2. Under each card use the hold buttons to choose how many cards you want to hold on to.

3. Hit the ‘draw’ button; all the cards you aren’t holding will be replaced with new ones. The first cards you now will have in your hand will represent your final poker hand.

4. If you can’t figure out your poker hand, the game will automatically tell you the best possible hand in the paytable at the top of the screen.

Blackjack

The objective of blackjack is to get as close as possible to the number 21. Although this objective is straightforward, there are still a few rules to know:

1. Select a table of your choice. The dealer will deal two cards facing up to each player and one to themselves.

2. Count your cards to see how close or far away from 21 you are, and then choose to hit for another card or stand for no more cards.

3. If your hand is 21 or anything less, you get to remain in the game.

4. After all players have made their decisions, the dealer will reveal their cards, including the facedown card.

5. If your hand is closer to 21 than the dealer, you win. However, if the dealer has 21 or is closer than anyone’s hand, then the dealer wins.

💡TIP: Some dos and don’ts of slots machines include choosing a game and playing it for the first time without checking out the paytable; this is a big don’t. Also, make sure you manually set your bet before you spin for the first time because sometimes the slot automatically sets the bet higher than you’d like.


Poker

Poker is an all-time favourite among most experienced players, and it does tend to catch the interest of new players.


Here’s more information to play 3 card poker:

1. Place your bet – either an ante (playing your hand against the dealer’s trying to make the highest rank) or pair plus (aim to make a hand of a pair or better with your hand).

2. After your bet has been placed, three cards will be dealt face down to each player and the dealer.

3. Decide if you want to play your hand or discard it. If you discard the hand, the dealer wins your bet. If you decide to keep playing, you need to place a play bet which must match the ante that you started with.

4. The 3 card hands will be compared to see who had the best hand. If you won, you get to collect your winnings.
