Blackjack, also known as twenty-one, is the most widely played casino banking game in the world. 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 object of the game is to beat the dealer in one of the following ways:
The player or players are dealt a two-card hand and add together the value of their cards. Face cards (kings, queens, and jacks) are counted as ten points. A player and the dealer can count an ace as 1 point or 11 points. All other cards are counted as the numeric value shown on the card. After receiving their first two cards, players have the option of getting a “hit”, or taking an additional card. In a given round, the player or the dealer wins by having a score of 21 or by having the higher score that is less than 21. Scoring higher than 21 (called “busting” or “going bust”) results in a loss. A player may win by having any final score equal to or less than 21 if the dealer busts. If a player holds an ace valued as 11, the hand is called “soft”, meaning that the player cannot go bust by taking an additional card; 11 plus the value of any other card will always be less than or equal to 21. Otherwise, the hand is “hard”.
The dealer must hit until the cards total 17 or more points. (At many tables the dealer also hits on a “soft” 17, i.e. a hand containing an ace and one or more other cards totaling six.) Players win by not busting and having a total higher than the dealer’s. The dealer loses by busting or having a lesser hand than the player who has not busted. If the player and dealer have the same total, this is called a “push”, and the player typically does not win or lose money on that hand. If all available players bust, the hand ends automatically without the dealer having to play his or her hand.
Call Now to rent a Caribbean Stud Poker Table for your next evet! 317-857-0168
Caribbean Stud has grown immensely in popularity over the last few years! In fact, Caribbean Stud Poker has become one of the most popular casino table games and is offered at nearly every full casino in the world.
Caribbean Stud is played on a blackjack-sized table. You are playing against the dealer and your hand must beat the dealer’s hand. You do not have to worry about beating the other player’s hands. Therefore, bluffing is useless in Caribbean Stud Poker. The game is slower paced than blackjack and is more of a social game rather than a bet it big and get rich quick type. Because of this the house edge won’t hurt your bankroll too much if you play for smaller stakes.
Like blackjack the player must act before the dealer. This means there will be times that you fold a hand only to have the dealer not qualify. This does not mean you should play every hand. A simple strategy is to play your hand if it contains Ace-King or better and fold anything else.
If the Dealer’s hand contains at least an Ace and King, he or she must then play their hand against each Player based on traditional poker hand rankings. If the Player’s hand beats the Dealer’s, you win even money on your Ante bet. For your secondary bet, the Players can win many times their bet which is calculated based on various odds per type of hand the player reveals.
Now that you understand the basics, you can sit down at the Caribbean Stud Poker table with confidence.
Call Now to rent a Craps Table for your next evet! 317-857-0168
If you’ve ever passed a Craps Table in a casino when a “hot shooter” was rolling the dice, you’ve probably wanted to play. Craps is a game in which everybody (except the house) can win together, and when everybody’s winning, a craps table can get pretty wild. Craps also has some of the best odds in the casino, so there’s a lot of winning to be done. A craps table, however, can also look pretty intimidating. It’s a big table with a bunch of numbers and unfamiliar phrases, and there can be more than 18 players and 4 staff at the table at any given time. In reality, though, craps is a pretty simple game
Craps is a dice game in which the players make wagers on the outcome of the roll, or a series of rolls, of a pair of dice. It is played on a purpose-built table and two dice are used. The dice are made after very strict standards and are routinely inspected for any damage. As a matter of course, the dice are replaced with new ones after about eight hours of use, and casinos have implemented rules in the way a player handles them.
The game is played in rounds, with the right to roll the dice by each player moving clockwise around the craps table at the end of each round. A player may choose not to roll but can instead continue to bet on the rolls for the next shooter.
While there’s a lot more to this game, it’s guaranteed that once you learn how to play, Craps will most likely become your favorite game in the casino. More players make more money and do it faster on average, than on any other table game in a casino.

Call Now to rent a Let it Ride Table for your next event! 317-857-0168
Let It Ride was first introduced to the casinos in 1993. Shuffle Master Incs, the company that makes those automatic-shuffling machines, created it. The game is popular because it offers a potential for high pay outs. Because the players are not playing against each other or trying to beat the dealer, camaraderie develops among the players creating a fun atmosphere. The game and the correct playing strategy can be learned quickly.
The game is played on a table similar to the blackjack tables. There are three circles in front of each player on the table. The circles are marked with the numbers 1. 2 and $. To start the game a player places three equal bets in each circle. The dealer deals out cards three at a time. The dealer places the three-card hand in front of each player. After each player receives his cards the dealer discards one card leaving two cards face down in front of the dealer. The machine counts out the remaining cards into the discard tray.
When this is finished the players are allowed to look at their three-card hand. At this point you have the option to take back your bet in circle number one or Let It Ride. To take back you bet you scrape your cards on the table toward you or make a brushing motion with your hand.
After all the players have made their decisions the dealer will turn up first of the two community cards which is in front of the dealer. This card is used as the forth card for all the players hands. You now have the option of taking down your second bet or letting it ride. You may take down the second bet even if you let the first bet ride but you cannot take down or put the first bet back up.
After all the players make their decision for the second bet, the dealer will turn up the second community card. This card completes the five-card hand for every player.

Texas Hold’em is a variation of the card game, Poker. Two cards, known as the hole cards or hold cards, are dealt face down to each player. and then five community cards are dealt face up in three stages. The stages consist of a series of three cards (“the flop”), later an additional single card (“the turn” or “fourth street”) and a final card (“the river” or “fifth street”). Each player seeks the best five card poker hand from the combination of the community cards and their own hole cards. If a player’s best five card poker hand consists only of the five community cards and none of the player’s hole cards, it is called “playing the board”. Players have betting options to check, call, raise or fold. Rounds of betting take place before the flop is dealt, and after each subsequent deal.
In Texas Hold’em, as in all variants of poker, individuals compete for an amount of money or chips contributed by the players themselves (called the pot). Because the cards are dealt randomly and outside the control of the players, each player attempts to control the amount of money in the pot based either on the hand they are holding, or on their prediction as to what their opponents may be holding and how they might behave.
The game is divided into a series of hands (deals); at the conclusion of each hand, the pot is typically awarded to one player (an exception in which the pot is divided between two or more is discussed below). A hand may end at the showdown, in which case the remaining players compare their hands and the highest hand is awarded the pot; that highest hand is usually held by only one player, but can be held by more in the case of a tie. The other possibility for the conclusion of a hand occurs when all but one player have folded and have thereby abandoned any claim to the pot, in which case the pot is awarded to the player who has not folded.
The objective of winning players is not to win every individual hand, but rather to make mathematically and psychologically better decisions regarding when and how much to bet, raise, call—or fold. By making such decisions to place influential bets, one can non-verbally represent or suggest holding or not-holding a certain or possible hand by either betting or not-betting pre-flop, and by venturing smaller or larger bets or raises at possibly more advantageous times, throughout the stages of the hand being dealt. One’s pattern of betting may encourage opponents to bet or to fold (in this complex process, called bluffing), without verbalizing a discouraging or dishonest word. The winning poker players know how to enhance their opponents’ betting and maximize their own expected gain on each round of betting, to thereby increase their long-term winnings.
Call Now to rent a Roulette Table for your next event! 317-857-0168
Roulette has offered glamour, mystery, and excitement to casino-goers since the 17th century. The game is popular in casinos worldwide in part because its rules are relatively simple and easy-to-understand. However, roulette also offers a surprising level of depth for serious betters.
Roulette is a casino game named after the French word meaning little wheel. In the game, players may choose to place bets on either a single number or a range of numbers, the colors red or black, or whether the number is odd or even.
To determine the winning number and color, a croupier spins a wheel in one direction, and then spins a ball in the opposite direction around a tilted circular track running around the circumference of the wheel. The ball eventually loses momentum and falls onto the wheel and into one of 37 (in French/European roulette) or 38 (in American roulette) colored and numbered pockets on the wheel.
Roulette players have a variety of betting options. Placing inside bets is either selecting the exact number of the pocket the ball will land in, or a small range of pockets based on their proximity on the layout. Players wishing to bet on the ‘outside’ will select bets on larger positional groupings of pockets, the pocket color, or whether the winning number is odd or even. The payout odds for each type of bet are based on its probability.
The roulette table usually imposes minimum and maximum bets, and these rules usually apply separately for all of a player’s inside and outside bets for each spin. For inside bets at roulette tables, some casinos may use separate roulette table chips of various colors to distinguish players at the table. Players can continue to place bets as the ball spins around the wheel until the dealer announces “no more bets.”
When a winning number and color is determined by the roulette wheel, the dealer will place a marker, also known as a dolly, on that winning number on the roulette table layout. When the dolly is on the table, no players may place bets, collect bets, or remove any bets from the table. The dealer will then sweep away all other losing bets either by hand or rake, and determine all of the payouts to the remaining inside and outside winning bets. When the dealer is finished making payouts, the marker is removed from the board where players collect their winnings and make new bets.
