Game Rules and Features
In order to get started, you have to determine the bet you’d like to place by clicking on the respective buttons. Pushing Bet One increases the bet by 25c. Bet Max enables you to wager the highest possible amount. The size of your bet can also be adjusted by clicking on the column where the winning table is.
If you have selected Bet One, the next thing you have to do is to click on the Deal button. Then, you will be prompted to decide which cards you want to keep and click on them in order to confirm. The other option is to click on the Deal button if you decided not to hold.
A player is allowed to hold or discard all cards or just some of them, while trying to make the best possible hand. Cards that have been discarded are replaced and the final hand of the player is formed.
And here comes the essence of the game and the wide variety of winning combinations. A pair of Jacks is the lowest combination that grants you an award and any pair lower does not reward anything.
If you have, for example Tens, you lose and you are enabled to start all over.
If you were lucky to have a winning hand, your award can be collected by clicking on the “Collect” button. If you want to continue playing and to boost your winnings, then the Double option is recommended. If you decide to double, you have to choose among four cards turned face down. If you pick a lower card than the one held by the dealer, you lose the amount you have previously won. If your cards and dealer’s are equal, you have the chance to walk out with your current winnings or double once again.
If the card you chose is better than dealer’s, your winnings total twice the amount of the initial bet and you can either collect the amount or opt for the Double option once again.
Another option you can choose is the Half Double. As its name suggests, you are allowed to double half of your winnings, while the other half is kept in your account balance. There is one important detail you have to consider, though. You are not allowed to Double or Half Double if the amount of your winnings is over €2000.
