On the table, next to the roulette wheel, is a layout with all the 37 numbers represented as well as different combinations of those numbers. All bets are made with chips that are either bought at the table or the cage.
When you have placed your bets the Dealer will spin the ball in the wheel. The winning number is shown on a display and marked with a special “block”.
All bets including that number wins. The winning depends of the size of your bet(s) and the combination(s) you have bet on.
Blackjack is one of the most popular casino table games. The object of the game is to have your cards total 21 or as near to 21 as possible without going over. Everyone plays against the dealer (the house) who begins the game by dealing each player two cards and the house one card face-up. Cards are counted at their face value. Kings, Queens and Jacks count as 10. Aces count as 1 or 11. If the first two cards you are dealt total 21, you have a Blackjack.
Under HOW TO PLAY the basic rules of Blackjack are described. In addition, numerous side rules allow for more intricate betting strategies.
When the dealer’s face-up card is an ace, each player gets the chance to bet on whether the dealer will get a blackjack or not. This is done before any other player actions. The insurance bet can be maximum half of the players original bet. A winning insurance bet will be paid at odds of 2:1.
When you get two starting cards of the same face value, you have the option to split the hand in two. You place another bet of the same amount as the original bet and play on with two hands. (Note that it is allowed to split 10-point cards even if they do not form a pair – for example you could split a jack and a king.)
When you’ve decided to split a hand, each of your two new hands will be treated separately, meaning that you will take cards to your first hand until you stand or bust, and then carry on with the next hand.
If you split aces, you are dealt a second card to each hand as usual, but you are not allowed to take any further cards. If the second card dealt to a split ace is a 10-point card you do not receive the blackjack bonus for this hand and hand is not accounted as natural blackjack. If the dealer also has a blackjack the result for this hand is player looses (players hand is accounted as 21)
If you feel confident that your hand will beat the dealer’s, you can double your original bet. In Apollonia Casino you may double down on any hand. When you’ve chosen to double down, you’ll only get one more card from the dealer
Apollonia Hold'em Poker
In this variation, the player does not compete against other players. Instead, they play only against the dealer. At any point during the course of the hand, the player is free to make one raise. In this poker-based game (community cards), the earlier the raise is made, the higher its value is.
The game begins with the player making a blind bet and an ante. They are also provided with an optional Trips side which allows them to acquire a payout whether their hand loses or wins. Apollonia Texas Hold ’em is different from other poker-based games in the sense that the ante still remains in play even after the players made a raise and even if the dealer does not open.
Like the common poker game formats, Apollonia Texas Hold ‘Em is played with a single, regular 52-card deck. Towards the end of the game, the dealer and the players left use any combination from their own two cards and the five community cards in order to come up with the best possible hand for themselves. The dealer will only be able to open if they possess at least a paired board. The play, ante, and blind bets are graded, depending on who wins, and whether the dealer will open.
Wild cards introduce an additional hand, five of a kind, which normally ranks above a straight flush. When a joker is in play, it usually can only be used as an ace or to complete a straight or flush. It cannot be used as a true wild card.
