How Do I Play Roulette?

Our roulette tables are one of the most popular fun casino tables to be hired (especially for the one table bookings), as they can fit up to 10 players at one time and all ages can play.

Our experienced, casino trained croupiers are happy to show everyone how to play and everybody will be talking about it several days after your party.

The dealer will give you colour chips in exchange for your Fun Money which you can place on the roulette layout to select one or more of the 37 numbers (including zero) and/or any of the bets on the the outside of the layout. See below for an eplanation. Each player has their own different colour chips so everyone knows which winning chips are theirs. (You have red chips, Dad has blue chips etc).The goal of the game of roulette is to correctly predict which number the ball lands in when spun round the roulette wheel by the dealer. The wheel has 37 numbered compartments, zero to 36. (18 numbers are red and 18 numbers are black).

You win 35 chips for every chip on the winning number, 17 for one chip covering two numbers and 8 for one chip covering four numbers, etc. You can also place your chips on Red or Black, Odd or Even, High or Low for an even money payout. If you wish, you could also choose a dozen (covering 1 to 12, 13 to 24 or 25 to 36), or one of three columns for a 2 to 1 payout.So many ways to win. Good Luck!

How Do I Play BlackJack?

Our Blackjack tables are great for card players and can fit up to 9 players at one time. It’s a game similar to Pontoon or 21 and is played with 6 packs of cards, dealt from a ‘shoe’.

Our experienced casino trained croupiers are happy to show everyone how to play.The dealer will give you chips for your Fun Money, some of which you place in a box in front of you.

The dealer gives 2 cards to each player and one card to themselves. The aim is to beat the dealers total. Face cards - Jacks, Queens and Kings are worth 10 points. Aces are worth 1 or 11, and the other cards by their number. When it’s your turn to play, you must make a decision to stay with a good total of your 2 cards or request more cards from the dealer to end up with a total as close to 21 as you dare! But if you go over 21, you lose. When everyone has decided in turn to take no more cards, the dealer then takes cards to a total of 17 minimum to 21 maximum.

If the dealers total goes over 21, then they have ‘Bust’ and all the players that have survived WIN even money. If you have a lower total than the dealer, you lose but if your total is higher than the dealer, you WIN even money. If you and the dealer have the same totals the bet stands, no one wins or loses.If the first two cards dealt to you are an Ace and 10, this is called a ‘Blackjack’ and wins 3 to 2 unless the house also has a ‘Blackjack’, in which case, no one wins or loses.We wish you good luck!

How Do I Play Casino Stud Poker?

The dealer will give you chips for your Fun Money, some of which you place in the box in front of you, called the ‘Ante’ bet. The aim of the game is to have a better card hand than the dealer.

All players and the dealer are then dealt five cards from one pack of cards, face down, with the exception of the dealers’ last card which will be dealt face up. You then look at your cards, and if you wish to remain in the game you must place a further bet called the ‘Raise’, which must be exactly double the amount of your original Ante bet. If you don’t wish to make a ‘Raise’ bet, you must ‘fold’ and lose your ‘Ante’ bet.When all players decisions are made in turn, the dealer turns over his/her other four cards.The dealer must ‘qualify’ with an ace and a king combination or better in their hand in order to compete against the player’s hand. If the dealers’ hand DOES NOT qualify, the ‘Ante’ bet will be paid odds of 1 to 1 and the ’Raise’ bet will be returned to the player. If the dealers’ hand DOES qualify, it will be compared against the player’s hand.

If the player’s hand is of a lower ranking, both their Ante and Raise bets will lose. If the dealer and player hands are tied, both the Ante and Raise bet will be a declared a standoff and returned to the player. If the players hand is of a higher ranking than the dealers qualifying hand, the Ante bet will be paid 1 to 1 and the Raise bet will be paid in accordance with the odds below.
(Help - As part of a Straight Flush or a Straight, an Ace is classed as ‘high’ (10 Jack Queen King Ace), but may be used as ‘low’, being ‘Ace 2 3 4 5’).

(Tip - A pair is a good hand to have in this game)

.Odds paid on the ‘Raise’ bet if the player hand beats the dealer’s qualifying hand:

Royal Flush      100 to 1
Straight Flush  50 to 1
Four of a Kind  20 to 1
Full House     7 to 1
Flush     6 to 1
Straight     4 to 1
Three of a Kind 3 to 1
Two pairs     2 to 1
One pair     1 to 1
