How to Play?


Perfect Pairs Blackjack is a variation of the standard Blackjack game that allows players to place an additional bet to cover the possibility of the first two cards dealt being a pair. A Perfect Pair Bet may only be placed on a Perfect Pairs Blackjack Table.

  • Players must have a bet on the normal Blackjack Box, in addition to a Perfect Pairs Bet.
  • Up to 3 players may place a Perfect Pairs Bet on the Bet Box, once they have placed their Blackjack Bets.
  • Refer to the table’s minimum and maximum signage pertaining to the Perfect Pairs Bet.
  • In relation to the Perfect Pairs Bet only, picture cards do not count as 10.
  • A Perfect Pair (same value and same suit), pays 25/1.
  • A Coloured Pair (same colour and same value, yet different suit), pays 12/1.
  • Mixed Pair (same value, but different colour), pays 6/1.
  • Remember the dealer is there to help you, don’t hesitate to ask for assistance at any time.


The object of Blackjack is to have a card total (hand) closer to 21 than the dealer, without going over 21 (bust).

Cards Value

Jack, Queen, King = 10
Ace = 1 or 11
Number Cards = Face Value           

How to play Blackjack

Each player has to place a bet to play (of at least the table minimum on the betting box in front of the player).

The dealer will then deal one card to each player (including himself), followed by a second card to each player (leaving himself only one).

All cards are dealt face up, starting with the player to the left of the dealer. Each player has to make one of five decisions, based on the two cards he has already been dealt and the card the dealer has:

Stand: Take no further cards.

Draw: Take another card. The aim is to get closest to 21.

Split: Place a bet. The second bet must be equal to the first bet. This must be done before the dealer deals him another card. When the pair that is split is a pair of Aces, the player will only receive one further card for each hand. Nevertheless, should the Ace be dealt this may also be split. When splitting Aces, and an Ace and a picture card (10) are dealt to the player. This will be counted as 21 and not as Blackjack.

Double: Double your stake on any two cards other than Blackjack, when doubling only one card will be dealt to the hand.

Surrender: Should the player feel that his first two cards are not a strong enough hand to win, the player may surrender his bet. This means the player loses half of his stake and his cards are removed. The player cannot surrender against the dealer’s Ace.

Dealer’s Hand

If the dealer’s hand has a value of 16 or less, the dealer must draw another card. If the dealer’s hand has a value of 17 or more, the dealer must stand.


If the dealer’s first card is an Ace, players may insure their bets against the dealer receiving Blackjack. This means that the player can place a bet, no more than half the original bet, in front of the betting box in the section marked insurance. If the dealer gets Blackjack, the insurance bet is paid off at 2-to-1 (this covers the original bet). If the dealer does not get Blackjack, the insurance bet is lost, and the game continues as normal.

How players win or lose
  • If the value of the player’s hand is closer to 21 than that of the dealer’s hand, the player wins even money on their bet. Any player whose hand exceeds 21 loses.
  • If the value of the dealer’s hand is closer to 21 than that of the player’s hand, the player loses his bet.
  • If the value of the dealer’s hand is the same as the player’s, the player keeps his original bet.
  • If the dealer and the player both have a Blackjack, it is a stand-off.
  • If the dealer exceeds 21, then all the players left in the game win even money.
  • If the player has Blackjack (e.g. an Ace and any picture card, or a 10), and the dealer does not, then the player will be paid 3-to-2 on this bet.
  • If the dealer has Blackjack and the player has not, but holds cards totalling 21, then the player loses his bet.

Remember the dealer is there to help you, don’t hesitate to ask for assistance at any time.


American Roulette is an exciting, fun-filled Casino Game with a wide variety of bets. All you need to know is how to place your bets.

The aim of  the game

The objective of American Roulette is to guess on what number in the wheel the ball will stop. Every number has an equal chance of being spun each spin e.g. the winning number on any spin has no effect on the outcome of the next spin.

The American Roulette Wheel

The American Roulette Wheel is made up of 37 segments, numbered from 0 to 36. There are 18 black numbers, 18 red numbers and 1 green zero.

American Roulette Bets and Payouts

American Roulette allows players to make a wide range of betting options, as shown by the pay table.

American Roulette Chips

American Roulette is played with special chips called colour chips. When you buy at the table, using your cash or M Rewards cards, you will be given your own uniquely coloured chips to distinguish your bets from the other players. You determine the value of your chips at the table when you buy in. The table minimum is clearly displayed on each table. When you are done playing, your colour chips must be exchanged for casino value chips, as the colour chips are unique to each individual table.

When Zero  Wins

All dozen and column bets lose. Even-chance bets lose half of the wager. All other bets not placed on zero, or combinations of zero lose.

Placing Your Bets

Before spinning the wheel, the dealer will announce the start of a new game by calling “Place your bets”.

The dealer will spin the wheel and you may continue to place bets until the dealer calls “No more bets”. No further bets will be accepted after this announcement.

You are responsible for placing your chips correctly, as each bet will be paid out in strict accordance with its position on the table when the ball rests.

The dealer will call out the winning number, its colour (red or black) and place a dolly on the winning number.

The table is cleared of losing bets and then the dealer will pay out the winners, announcing the amount of winning chips for each colour being played.

Remember the dealer is there to help you, don’t hesitate to ask for assistance at any time.


Raise `Em Poker is a variation of Five Card Stud Poker played with a single deck of cards dealt from the dealer’s hand or an automatic card shuffler.

Players bet on the outcome of their own hands, they do not play against the dealer’s hand.

The objective of the game is to have a Poker hand of at least a pair of 10’s or better.

Buying chips

Raise ’Em Poker is played with value chips. Cash chips can be obtained from the dealer at the Table, either via smart cards or a cash buy-in.

Table layout

Raise ’Em Poker allows seven seated players at any time. Each playing position has a set of three betting boxes.

How to play

Each player is required to place a minimum ante bet in the ante box  in front of him/her, before the dealer deals. An ante is a forced bet which all players must play before the hand /deal begins.

Cards are dispensed from a card shuffler on the table and each player is dealt 3 cards. When all the players have been dealt their 3 cards, the dealer deals 3 for himself, discarding the top card. The remaining 2 cards are then dealt to community box 1 –   and community box 2 – .

Players are now allowed to view their 3 cards and are offered the option to raise their initial bet by placing an additional bet, equal to their ante bet, on their own betting box marked .

Once players who want to raise their bets have done so, the dealer turns over the first community card. This card becomes the fourth card in each player’s hand.

Players are then given a second option to raise their bet, again by placing a bet in their betting box marked  (this bet must be equal to their ante bet).

The dealer now turns over the second community card, which becomes the firth, and final card in each player’s hand. Players with winning hands are now paid by the dealer on each bet they have placed (one, two or three bets) during the game.

Remember the dealer is there to help you,  don’t hesitate to ask for assistance at any time.
