The classic game in which the player tries to draw to 21, or closer to 21, than the dealer without going over (busting). Each player starts with two cards face up, then is allowed to hit (take another card) or stay (play that hand). The dealer starts with two cards as well, but one is face up and the other face down. Face cards (jack, queen, king) are worth 10, and aces are worth 1 or 11 (player choice). Receiving an ace and a 10 on your first two cards is the lucrative hand known as “blackjack.” Additional bets like “splitting” and “doubling down” are also available on certain hands.
Possibly the most exciting game on the floor, Craps often draws the biggest crowds. The game appears complicated to the newcomer, but the premise is actually quite simple. Players wage money on the outcome of one roll, or a series of rolls, of two dice by the “shooter.” The game is played in rounds, and the first roll of each new round is called the “come-out roll.” An array of player bets is available both for the come-out roll, as well as each additional roll, with payouts dependent on the likelihood of each outcome.
Perhaps the simplest table game of all. In Roulette, a croupier spins the wheel in one direction then places and spins a ball in the opposite direction. After a number of revolutions, the ball eventually falls into one of 38 slots. If the ball lands in a number or color where you placed a bet prior to the spin, you win.

21 + 3 combines two of the most basic casino table games: Blackjack and 3 Card Poker. After placing your wagers (a required Blackjack wager and an optional 21 + 3 wager), you will be dealt 2 cards face up. If you made the 21 + 3 wager, use your 2 cards plus the dealer’s up card to create your 3 card hand.
The payout table for the 3 card hand is as follows:
- Straight Flush 9 to 1
- Three of a Kind 9 to 1
- Straight 9 to 1
- Flush 9 to 1
Normal blackjack rules apply for the required Blackjack wager.
TOP 3: A second optional side wager used in the game of blackjack in conjunction with the 21+3 wager. The TOP 3 wager can only be offered on blackjack tables with the 21+3 wager. Just as the 21+3 wager the TOP 3 wager is based on a three card hand using the dealer’s initial up card and the player’s two initial up cards to form a three card poker hand.

Three Card Poker
Easy to learn and fun to play, Three-Card Poker has gained enormous popularity in casinos. The game actually consists of two games: Ante-and-Play (in which you play the dealer to see who has the highest hand) and PairPlus (in which you simply wager on whether or not you'll be dealt a pair or better).
For Ante-and-Play, the player places an “ante” (bet) before receiving his cards. The cards are then dealt, and the player can fold and lose the ante or raise by placing a bet of equal money to the ante. If he chooses to play, one of three things can happen. The first is that the dealer does not qualify (have a hand of queen high or better) and the ante is paid out even money while the play bet is returned to the player. If the dealer does qualify, the player wins if his hand ranks higher than the dealer’s, resulting in a payout of even money on the ante and the play bets. If the dealer has the higher hand, the dealer takes both the ante and the play bets.
