    Objective

    The aim of the game is to beat the dealer. A hand that has a value closer to 21 than the dealer's hand is a winner. You can also win if the dealer's hand goes over 21 (bust). Be careful though because if your hand goes above 21 you will lose automatically.

    Playing Instructions

    Once the game has loaded you need to choose your seat at the table by clicking on any available seat. Seats are numbered from one to seven in the lobby and the number of the seat chosen is displayed in the game history.

    To place a bet, select your chip value from the slider and then click directly on the table in front of your seat.

    If a game is already in progress you will need to wait for it to complete before you can play.

    When the game begins all players will be dealt two cards face up, the dealer will get two cards as well, although one will be face down.

    Game Rules

    Card Values - The cards all assume their face value with the exception of any court or picture cards (Jacks, Queens and Kings) which all value 10, and Aces which value either 1 or 11 depending on which will give the player the best hand. If the first card dealt has a value of 10 (10, J, Q or K), and the second is an Ace, you’ve scored a Blackjack. The round should be over without any betting rounds.

    Stand - Take no further action and remain with your hands value.

    Hit - Take another card to try to improve the value of your hand. This option can be used multiple times.

    Double Down - Double the amount you have bet on your hand and receive one more card and no more.

    Split - If your first two cards are of the same value, you can perform a split by doubling your bet and receive two more cards. This effectively gives you two hands to play. 

    Note: If you split Aces you are only dealt one more card to each hand and cannot hit for extra cards. 21 hit after splitting is not blackjack as the cards are not the first two dealt, and therefore only pays 1 to 1. You are not able to split hands more than once.

    If the dealer’s up facing card is an ace, all players are offered an insurance bet. This bet is half the player's stake. In the event that the dealer has a blackjack this bet will pay at 2 to 1. If the dealer does not have Blackjack the bet is lost and the hands play as normal.

    Insurance bet - This bet is half the players stake. In the event that the dealer has a blackjack this bet will pay at 2 to 1. If the dealer does not have blackjack the bet is lost and the hands play as normal.

    Surrender - The player receives half the bet value back without playing any further. 

    A slow network connection or slow device performance may hinder the player from selecting a choice on time. When no choice is selected, the default selection is a stand (and no for insurance).

    Once the players have all performed, the dealer will turn over her card that is faced down. If the value of her hand is below 17, she must deal another card. She will continue taking cards until the value of her cards is at least 17. If the value of her hand is equal to 17 and one of her cards is Ace, she must deal another card. When the dealer’s card value is between 17 and 21, no more cards are drawn. Players with a hand closer to 21 than the dealer’s, win the round. If the player's hand is the same value as the dealer's, the hand is a push or a tie, and the player keeps his stake. If the dealer gets busted, all players get paid unless they were busted themselves.

    This version of blackjack is played with eight decks of cards, cut in the middle. The dealer shuffles the cards at the end of the round in which she hits the red card that cut the deck (at approximately half way through). 

    The game follows the rules below:

    Blackjack Side Bets

    This Blackjack game includes two optional side bets – Perfect Pairs and 21+3. Side bets can only be placed in addition to a main Blackjack bet. The side bet winnings are independent of the outcome of the regular Blackjack game.

    Perfect Pairs

    Perfect Pairs win when the first two cards dealt to a player produce a pair. There are three possible pair types:

    Perfect Pair: A pair of the same rank and the same suit. e.g. two Aces of Spades.

    Colored Pair: A pair of the same rank and color but a different suit; e.g. 2 of Diamonds + 2 of Hearts.

    Mixed Pair: A pair of the same rank with different suits and colors; e.g. 10 of Hearts + 10 of Clubs.

    Each pair receives a different payout amount.

    21+3

    The 21+3 bet gives you the chance to win if your first two cards plus the dealer’s up-facing card comprise any of the following winning combinations (similar to those in poker):

    Suited Trips: An identical threesome; e.g. 3 Queens of Hearts.

    Straight Flush: A threesome in numerical sequence and same suit; e.g. 10, Jack and Queen of Diamonds.

    Three of a Kind: A threesome with the same value but with different suits; e.g. any 3 unmatching Kings.

    Straight: A threesome in numerical sequence but different suits; e.g. 2 of Spades + 3 of Clubs + 4 of Hearts.

    Flush: A threesome with the same suit; e.g. 2, 6 and 10 of Clubs.

    Each combination receives a different payout amount.

    Error Handling

    If there is any error in the game procedure, the game round will be temporarily paused and the shift manager will be notified. Players will be notified by an on-screen pop-up message to highlight that the issue is being investigated. If the manager can immediately resolve the error, the game round will continue as normal. If immediate resolution is not possible, the game round will be cancelled and initial bets will be refunded to all players who participated in the game round.

    Malfunction voids all pays.

    Should a system disconnection occur after a bet was placed on the Blackjack table and before the timer has completed, the bet will not be deducted from the balance. If a disconnection occurs after the bet was finalized and already deducted from the balance, yet before the game results are known, the bet will be processed as usual and the game will proceed with default player choices, such as stand. The balance is updated according to the game results. If after a disconnection, the player reconnects again during the same Blackjack round, the game will follow the disconnected behavior of a default stand.

    Disconnection

    The Golden Nugget Live Dealer services are provided via internet, which inevitably may disconnect at times. This poses potential snags to the game flow and user experience.

    In order to minimize the impact caused by unexpected disconnections, when a player loses his connectivity to the game server, a reconnect message will be displayed on the screen.

    Until the player reconnects to the game server, the game and chat functionality will behave improperly or be completely inactive.

    The following error handling rules apply:

    • In the event that a disconnection occurs before bets are placed, i.e. before the 'No More Bets' message on the screen, the bet will not be deducted from the balance and the player will not participate in the game round. Once reconnected, please verify your balance and inform Customer Service immediately if there are any issues.
    • In the event that a disconnection occurs after a game round begins, i.e. after the 'No More Bets' message on the screen, we do not guarantee that your bet was placed. Please verify with Customer Service to assure the balance is correct.
    • If the bet was placed, the game will proceed as normal and the winnings will be processed according to the game result regardless of the disconnection. Please note some exceptions with Blackjack:
    • If playing on multiple seats, there is a possibility that only some bets process while others don’t.
    • A disconnection message will not be displayed to the player, and all decisions will proceed as a default 'Stand'
    • In the event that a client disconnection occurred while playing Blackjack, regardless of the status of the game, please make sure to review your balance after the reconnection and contact Customer Service if there is a problem.

    Game Rules

    In the Baccarat game two hands are dealt; one for the banker and another for the player. The player bets which will win, or if they will tie. The winning hand has the closest value to nine. The game is played with eight decks of cards that are shuffled regularly by the dealer. After a shuffle, the first card is burned and revealed to players. A number of additional cards equal to the value of the first card are then also burned (face cards equal 10).

    Card Values

    Ace 1
    Face cards and tens 0
    All other cards Value stated on card

    If the cards in a hand total more than ten points, simply subtract ten to obtain the baccarat point value of the hand. (e.g. 8+8=16, but counts as 6. Jack+7=17, but counts as 7.)

    A two-card total of nine is the best hand and is called a 'Natural'. The second-best hand is a 'Natural' eight. If both the player and banker are dealt identical hands, the game ends in a tie.

    The dealer will deal two cards for the player’s hand and two for the banker’s hand. If the value of either hand is eight or nine (a natural) the hand is complete and no further cards are dealt. Otherwise, the player gets dealt another card for a hand sum of 5 or less. If the player did not draw a third card, then the banker follows the same rules just mentioned above.

    If the player did draw a third card, then the banker follows these rules:

    If the player’s third card is a 2 or 3, the banker will draw if he has a 0-4 and stays with a 5-7.

    If the player’s third card is a 4 or 5, the banker will draw if he has a 0-5 and stays with a 7.

    If the player’s third card is a 6 or 7, the banker will draw if he has a 0-6 and stays with a 7.

    If the player’s third card is an 8, then the banker will draw if he has a 0-2 and stays with a 3-7.

    If the player’s third card is a 9,10, face card or Ace, the banker will draw if he has a 0-3 and stays with a 4-7.

    At the end of the game winnings are paid as follows: Banker = 1:0.95; Player = 1:1; Tie: 1:8

    Banker: 1:0.95 + bet amount
    Player: 1:1 + bet amount
    Tie: 1:8 + bet amount

    In the event of a tie, bets on Banker and Player are refunded.

    Dragon Bonus wagers pay as follows:
    Natural Win pays 1 to 1
    Natural Tie is a Push
    Non-Natural Win by 9 points pays 30 to 1
    Non-Natural Win by 8 points pays 10 to 1
    Non-Natural Win by 6-7 points pays 4 to 1
    Non-Natural Win by 4-5 points pays 2 to 1
    All other outcomes result in a loss of the Dragon Bonus bet

    Betting Instructions

    To place a bet, select a chip value from the slider and then click directly where it says Player, Banker or Tie in the center of the table. Once the timer has finished the countdown, the dealer will begin dealing the cards. If there is a game in progress you will need to wait until it has completed before placing a bet.

    Game Rules

    The roulette wheel has 38 separately numbered slots alternately colored red and black, the 0 and 00 are green. The dealer releases a ball into the spinning wheel. The objective is to predict on which, of the 38 numbers on the wheel, will the ball settle on. The dealer will spin the wheel and release the ball. Once the ball has settled the dealer will announce the winning number and all bets will be settled automatically. The timer will then begin counting down to the start of the next game. Malfunction voids all pays.

    Betting Options

    There are a number of different possible types of bets to be made in Roulette. These are split into Inside Bets which are bets made onto the numbered section of the table, and Outside Bets which are made on the other areas.

    Inside Bets

    Straight Up Bet- A bet on an individual number. The simplest roulette bet with the highest payout chance. This bet pays at 35 to 1 plus the original stake.

    Split Bet - A two number bet which is placed on the line connecting the two numbers; for example covering 24 and 27. This type of bet pays 17 to 1 plus the original stake.
