Gambling, developing more than one century, gradually acquired specific rules, customs, etiquette and even slang. The same is true of gambling establishments. Each has a unique set of rules for casino games, compliance with which is not only a sign of good taste, but also a prerequisite for participation in games.
For example, each individual casino has its own set of playing chips, which are used as a replacement for traditional Fiat money, simplifying the gaming process. Since the chips are unique, they can only be exchanged for currency in the institution where they were originally purchased.
Many people associate casinos with luxury, largely due to the fact that luxury establishments involve not only face control,but also dress code. A sign of a player’s experience is not the number of chips that accumulate in front of him during the game, but how he communicates with the dealer and other players using gestures. The specifics of gambling in different casinos may differ, but such classic games as roulette, poker or blackjack, there are a number of fundamental rules of casino games that apply almost all over the world.
The rules of the casino games: roulette
The rules of roulette in a casino are not complicated or complicated. Roulette, or “Ferris wheel”, is a round-shaped drum, which usually consists of 38 numbered cells. Numbering begins with a single zero, followed by a double zero and numbers from one to thirty-six in a circle. Numbers alternate: odd pairs are split by even pairs. The cells are alternately colored red and black. The dealer spins the drum and throws a small ball in the opposite direction to the wheel movement. When the movement of the roulette slows down, it becomes clear which of the cells hit the ball.
The roulette table is designed as a table, which consists of three columns, each of which is marked with 12 numbers. Zero and double zero are not outlined in the table. All bets are divided into two types: internal and external. As a rule, the number of bets is unlimited.
The internal bet (direct) is a kind of assumption about which number the ball will “choose”. In order to place a bet, you need to place the chips in the appropriate cell on the table of the game table. If the bet is played and the ball stops in the cell selected by the player, the payout will be 35 to 1.
Split bet-the assumption that one of the two numbers located next to each other in the game table will win. According to the rules of the game of roulette, to perform a split, you must place the chips on the line that separates the two numbers. If the ball chooses at least one of the numbers, the payout will be 17 to 1.
Street bet (a bet on a trio or three numbers) – the assumption that the ball will fall on one of the three digits in the row of the game table. In order to place a bet, you must place the chips on the outer line of the selected row. The bet will be paid in the amount of 11 to 1 if the ball stops on any of the three numbers.
These are the main types of bets that are most attractive to players, as they assume the highest coefficients. In addition to these, there are also: a corner bet, a bet on five numbers and a bet on six lines.
External bets are an assumption about what color cell the ball will stop on the next spin. The payout in this case will be 1 to 1. To place a bet, you must place a chip in the field marked ” Red ” or “Black”.
There are two types of roulette: American and English. Their only difference is the presence of a double zero in the American version of the game.
External bets also include the assumption that the ball will stop at an even or odd cell number. In addition, the player can guess whether the bet will be low – from 1 to 18 or high-from 19 to 36.
Well, for those who like to act for sure, roulette can offer a bet on a dozen or a bet on a column.
The rules of the casino games: blackjack
The rules of the game of blackjack are simple, but the mathematical nature of the game allows us to consider it one of the most dangerous for the gambling house in the context of possible fraud. Blackjack is also known as twenty-one. It is believed that, in contrast to the “socializing” roulette, where several winners are possible in one round and everyone collectively rejoices in the victory, blackjack is a game for single intellectuals. A distinctive feature of blackjack is the ability to calculate and compile mathematical strategies.
A standard set of 52 cards is used to play blackjack. Some casinos use two decks mixed together, and there are some where 6 decks take part in the game.
The point is to beat the dealer by scoring the most points without exceeding 21. An ACE can be rated as 1 or 11 points. Cards with images are estimated at 10 points, and the rest-according to the name (value).
Before the start of the game, each participant is determined with the size of the bet and puts the chips in the designated area right in front of him. The minimum and maximum betting limits can be set by the gambling establishment, but usually the bets are in the range from $1 to $500.
The combination in which the player has an ACE and a ” ten ” – 21 points and is called natural blackjack.
The rules of the casino games: poker
The rules of the game of poker are widely known all over the world, although they may differ depending on the type of game.
Poker, despite the fact that many consider it a typical American game, is a favorite card game around the world. Before you start playing poker, you need to carefully study and remember the winning combinations, because the outcome of the competition depends on it.
The game can take part from 2 to 10 people. In the first round, players are dealt two cards.
After the first hand, there is a “trade”, which can last for several rounds. During the” trade”, the player can: make a bet, answer, raise, fold, or skip. The trading circle can end only when all the players have agreed on an equal bet or refused to play at all. Next, the dealer puts three cards face down, so that their dignity was clearly visible to all present. Each player uses the cards on the table to create their own combination. If there is more than one player left at the table, then there are two more consecutive rounds of bidding, after each of which another “common” card appears on the table.
After the fifth community card has hit the table, the last round of bidding follows, and if there are two players left at the table, then a showdown takes place. The winner is the one who collected the most “cash” combination.
Recall that the Dutch court of the city of Hertogenbosch decided in favor of online poker players, exempting them from paying European tax.
