Black Jack is the most popular casino card game in America for a reason! Easy to play, lots of fun, and potentially big payouts. Also known as “21,” Blackjack is a traditional card game where the object is to draw cards that total 21 or come closer to 21 than the dealer. All cards count at face value, while the King, Queen and Jack count as 10, and the Ace which counts as either 1 or 11.
As in traditional Baccarat, Mini-Baccarat involves just a few decisions: how much you want to bet and whether to bet on the Bank, the Player, Tie, or the Pairs Wager. In betting on the bank, the casino will collect 5% vigorish or commission charge on money won. The commission is paid at the end of play or at the conclusion of each shoe.
Players may place a Pairs Wager by placing a wager on one or both of two designated betting areas on the table layout. These betting areas are identified as "Player Pair" and "Banker Pair" and are located on either side of the betting area for the "Tie Hand." A winning Pairs Wager pays 11 to 1. A winning tie bet pays 8 to 1.
At Hard Rock Hollywood, we also offer Commissionless Baccarat. The Dealer will charge every Player at the table a vigorish equal to 50 percent of the Player’s wager on the “Banker Hand” if the “Banker’s Hand” wins with a point-count of 6. The vigorish will be taken out of the wining “Banker’s” wager during the “pay and take” phase of the game. All other winning “Banker’s Hands” will not be charged a vigorish.
Super 6 is a side-bet on the Banker to win with a point- count total of 6, with any other outcome being a loss. All wagers on the “Super 6” will be paid 12 to 1.
In this variation of poker, each player and the dealer receive three cards. The object of the game is to beat the dealer's hand. Players may also wager that their 3-card hand may contain a pair or better.
Pai Gow Poker combines elements of the ancient Chinese Game of Pai Gow and the American game of poker. The game is played with a traditional deck of 52 playing cards plus 1 joker. To win, a two-card hand must rank higher than an opponent's two-card hand and a five-card hand must rank higher than an opponent’s five-card hand.
Known for its potential for high payouts, Let It Ride was designed to offer players an opportunity to control two of their three bets wagered. Based on the 5-card stud poker game, the object of Let It Ride is to make the best 5-card hand.
Texas Hold'em is one of the most popular traditional poker games today... one of the reasons is that "any two cards can win." The same holds true for the new Texas Hold'em bonus Poker. The best "hole cards" (2-card starting hand) sometimes will not win... and the worst starting hand (hole cards) sometimes becomes the winning poker hand after all of the community cards are exposed.
Casino war is a casino card game based on the children's game of War. The game is arguably one of the most easily understood casino card games, but it also has a relatively large house edge compared to other games.
The game is normally played with six standard 52-card decks. The cards are ranked in the same way that cards in poker games are ranked, except that aces are always high.
Spanish 21 is a variation of Blackjack. The objective of Spanish 21 is for a Player to come as close to 21 without going over, while still having a higher total than the Dealer. Prior to receiving any cards, the Player must place a bet. Once the bet is made, the Player is dealt two cards face up.
The Dealer is also dealt two cards. If the total value of the Player's cards is closer to 21 than the Dealer, the Player wins as much as was bet. The Player also wins if the Dealer goes over 21 and the Player has not busted. If the Player's total goes over 21, the Player loses the amount bet.
