12.2. BLACKJACK

 

 

To organize the game the following are needed:

a) 8 card decks

b) a special playing table

c) a special box for playing cards which is made so that the playing cards get out of the box in an ordered way.

At the beginning of the game or when the cards decks are replaced with new ones, the dealer opens the cards in a crescent shape on the table so that the players make sure that all the cards in the deck are available. Then, the dealer mixes the cards, takes out a random card and divides the deck to 2 parts, and then takes the right half of the deck and puts them behind the cards and takes another “cutting” card to divide the deck with a 2/3 ratio, puts the big part in front in a special box of cards. The game is run by a dealer who plays with all the players based on the boxes from the left hand side.

The player needs to collect playing cards the total sum of which does not exceed 21, but exceeds the sum of the dealer’s cards. In that case, the player has won. If the dealer’s cards sum has not exceeded 21 and is more than the sum of the player’s points, then the player has lost. If the sum total of the cards collected by the player and the dealer is equal (but not more than 21), it is considered a draw. All bets must be made before the end of the period envisaged for bets. Each player makes a bet on the field (box) in front of him. So it turns out which players continue the game. The moment of entering or leaving the game is considered to be the moment when the bets are made. The player can play at least on one playing field, and at most - three.

The dealer gives each player 2 cards (faces upward), and takes 1 card (face upward) for him from the special box where the playing cards are placed.

The numerical values ​​of the cards are indicated on their face, except for the Ace, which is valued at one or eleven depending on the game situation, on the soldier, the queen, and the king which are valued as 10. The combination of an Ace and any 10 is called “Black Jack”. Whoever owns that combination is the winner by default, with the exception of the situation when the dealer own a Black Jack combination, too. In that case, the result of the game is considered a draw.

If that the player’s card combination is a Black Jack and the dealer’s combination is not, the player gets his winnings with a 3:2 ratio against his bet. If the dealer’s combination is a Black Jack and the player’s is not, the player loses his bet. Any combination exceeding 21 playing cards is considered to be “a bust”, which is a defeat. The collection of cards is always started by the player, and if his combination of cards exceeds 21, he is considered defeated even if the dealer’s playing cards exceed the 21. If the dealer has a bust, then all other players, except for the players whose card combinations exceed 21, are considered to be the winners.

The dealer has no right to choose, for him the game goes on with specific fixed rules. The dealer must take so many cards that the combination of these cards does not exceed 16 points and stop taking cards when the combination is equal to 17 points or exceeds 17 points. If the dealer’s combination consisting of two cards is equal to 17 points and at least one of these two cards is an Ace, then the player must stop taking the card. If the first two cards have already been dealt, the player must decide what steps to take, and that decision should be made based on the total amount of his cards and the dealer’s card points.

The player must decide which of the following steps to take:

● Take one or several more cards (Hit) or it is enough to stay with his first two cards and not to take more (Stand).

● If the player’s two cards have the same numeric values ​​then he/she can Split the pair and make each card the first of the new hand, making one more bet of his original bet amount. In this case, the dealer deals one more card in both parts of the player’s division, and the player begins to make the decision in the same order, from left to right, for his already two hands. In this case, the player does not occupy another playing field, instead he continues playing with two hands on the already occupied field.

● The player can double down the bet. This means that the player makes a bet equal to the initial one and receives only one card, and in case of winning, he receives a winning twice as big as the original bet.

● The player, regardless of the unit value of the dealer’s card, may abandon the game (Surrender) and get just the half of the original bet as a refund. Meanwhile, the dealer asks each of the players on the playing field by order, if they want leave the game while playing each combination.

● The player can Insure his original bet from the dealer’s BlackJack if the dealer’s open card is an Ace. He makes a bet at half of his initial bet amount on the “insurance” field. The insurance bet is paid at the ratio of 2 to 1 in favor of the player if it turns out that the dealer’s combination is a “BlackJack”. If the player’s combination is not a “BlackJack”, then the dealer gets the bet on the “Insurance” field and continues the game.

● The player whose playing card combination is a “BlackJack”, and the dealer’s card is an Ace, can prefer to take “Even money”, that is take a bet equal to his initial one besides (not with 3 to 2 ratio, as paid in case of Black Jack), because in this case it is possible that the dealer’s card combination is also a “BlackJack”.

 

Rewards

 

1. In case of a “BlackJack” the winning is paid at a 3:2 ratio.

2. In case of a winning combination, the winning is paid at a 1:1 ratio.

3. If the dealer has made a “BlackJack” combination, the player will be paid his winning at a 2:1 ratio in case of “Insurance” bet.

In Black Jack, besides the above-mentioned three main bet winnings, players have the opportunity to win additional bets that benefit no matter what the main bet outcome is.

However, the player can not make a bet with the “Bet Behind” function on his own hand. Before the end of the bets the player can make a bet on any available activated “Bet Behind” field occupied by another player. If the player makes a bet with the “Bet Behind” function and the player occupying that place decides not to take part in the given round, then the former’s bet will be refunded immediately. All the decisions in the given round of BlackJack are made by the players on the seats whose names are revealed. Upon wish, the player may make a decision to use “Insurance” if the dealer’s open card is an Ace. Upon wish, the player may also decide to double the bet when the player on whose hand he has made a bet, has chosen to double the bet or make any of the “split” options in advance. Later, the player has the option to modify these settings, as well as to remove the “LET ALL THE OTHER PLAYERS MAKE A BET BEHIND” command if he does not want any other player to make this over his own bet.

 

 

12.3. 5 CARD POKER

 

 

The game is played with a 52-card deck including the ranks from “2” to Ace in each of the four suits: clubs, diamonds, hearts and spades. In each of the suits, the highest card is the Ace (A), the lowest –“2”.

The “Poker” is based on the combination levels of 5 cards which are played on a special table, in front of each player there are fields of Ante, double up fields – raise and deposit – bonus fields. All the players play against the dealer independent of each other.

The dealer deales 5 cards face down (closed) to each of the players including him clockwise except one card that is put face up (open). Until the end of the deal none of the players has right to touch the cards.

Getting acquainted with the cards, the player decides their values. The essence of the game is that the player must compare his cards with the dealer’s ones and the one who owns higher cards or higher combinations wins in the end.

The card combinations below are represented in the ascending order of their values:

 

NN

Cards combination

1.

One Pair or lower (Ace and King)

2.

Two Pair

3.

Three of a Kind

4.

Any 5 consecutive cards (Straight)

5.

Any 5 of the same suit (Flush)

7.

Four of a Kind

8.

5 consecutive cards of the same suit (Straight Flush)

9.

5 consecutive cards of the same suit ending up with the Ace (Royal Flush)

 

After evaluation of the card combination the player is given a chance to make one of the following decisions:

1. Fold: the player surrenders immediately, he throws the closed cards and loses the amount placed on the Ante field and the game ends for him.

2. Continue the game taking into account the advantages of the cards. The player makes a bet on the raise field equal to twice the bet made on the Ante field, at the same time he can put his cards face down on the table.

If the player has made the decision N2, the dealer opens his remaining 4 cards after which the dealer’s 5-card combination is compared with the players’ card combinations. If the dealer doesn’t have a qualified card combination, that is he does not have at least the lowest combination of cards to participate in the game (Ace, King), then the players’ Antes and doubled Antes (raise) are refunded and an extra amount equal to the Ante made by the player is paid.

If the player’s card combination has a lower value that the dealer’s, the former loses his bets (the ante and the raise). If both the player and the dealer have combinations of the same value, then the highest cards that are out of the player’s and dealer’s playing combinations are compared, and the player whose highest card out of combination is of a higher value, wins. If all the cards (both the ones in and out of combinations) have equal values, the player gets back his bets (ante plus raise), and the game is restarted. If the combination of the player’s cards is of greater value than the dealer’s combination, then the player gets the Ante and the raise amount and is paid the amount of the Ante, as well as additional winning amount according to the following table:

 

Card combination

Amount multiplied by extra winning (is multiplied by the raise amount)

If the player has got a wrong number of cards, his combination is not taken into account and he gets his bet and a fine at the amount of 50% of his Ante. If the dealer has got 4 cards instead of 5 for himself, he needs to get for himself one more card to fill in the combination.

The goal of Three Card Poker is to make the dealer lose with a higher 3-card combination. The player can make an “Ante” bet and one or both of the “Plus a Pair” and “6 card” bonus bets. The dealer deals 3 cards to the player and his own 3 cards face down. The player should choose the “Play” option to make a “play” bet equal to the bet “Ante”, and if he does not want to continue the game, he should choose the “Surrender” option.

The results are defined by comparing the combinations of the player and the dealer.

The dealer should have at least a Queen in his “Hand” to be competitive relative to the player’s “Hand”.

If the player makes a “Play” bet, then in case of winning the bets “Ante” and “Play” will be paid 1:1, and if his first three cards make up a Straight Flush (3 consecutive cards of the same suit), Threes (Three of Kind) or Straight (sequence of any 3), then the winning will be paid according to the Ante Bonus winnings table even if the dealer wins in that round. There is no separate bet for Ante Bonus: to win with Ante, it is needed to continue the game making the “Play” bet, and in case of having that combination it will work.

If the player makes additional “Add pair” bet, then he will win based on the winning payment table, making a Pair or a higher combination with the 3 cards in his hand even if he chooses the “Surrender”.

12.8.1. CASINO HOLDEM 

 

 

The game is played with a 52-card deck including the ranks from “2” to Ace in each of the four suits: clubs, diamonds, hearts, spades. The highest card in each suit is the Ace, the smallest card is 2. The Ace is considered the highest value card in the A, K, Q, J, 10 (Straight) combination, whereas it is considered the lowest card in the 5, 4, 3, 2, A (Straight) combination.

The card game “Casino Holdem” is based on the combination levels of 5 cards and is played on a special table. All players play independently of each other against the dealer.

In order to win, the player’s 5-card combination “Hand” should win the dealer’s hand. The best hands of the player and the dealer are formed from the two cards dealt to them and the five common cards put on the table during the next rounds. The cards are mixed up after each round. In order to start the game, the player must make a bet on the “Ante” bet (starting bet) field.

The player is dealt two open cards, after which the dealer is dealt two closed cards. Three common open cards are put on the table, each designed for the player and the dealer to make his own “Hand”. The player must choose one of the offered “Call” or “Fold” instructions. To continue the round, you need to select “Call” and make a “Call” bet which is twice as much as the player's “Ante” bet. To renounce the round, you should choose “Fold”. The player may choose to “Fold” to finish the round, as a result of which he will lose his first, that is, the “Ante” bet. The “Call” or “Fold” option does not affect the “Bonus” extra bet. Once the decision is made, the dealer deals two more common cards (“Turn” and “River”). The dealer opens also his first two cards.

To determine the winner, the player’s and the dealer’s 5-card combinations with the best payout coefficients are composed and are compared between the player and the dealer.

 

EXTRA “BONUS” BET

 

The extra “Bonus” bet (Bonus bet) is made if the player wishes, which is applied after the mandatory “Ante” bet is made. After making the “Ante” bet, the bonus field will be activated.

In case of extra “Bonus” bet only the “Hand” with a combination of the first five cards is taken into account.

If the player has a combination from a Pair of Ace to Royal Flush, he can win the extra “Bonus” bet and get the amount according to the extra “Bonus” bet table.

 

Game results and payments

 

The results are determined by comparing the best 5-card hands of the dealer and player (a combination of 2 dealer / player cards and 5 community cards).

The dealer should have at least a pair of 4’s or a higher combination in his “Hand” to be competitive relative to the player’s “Hand”.

The “Call” bet is paid 1:1, and the “Ante” bet is paid according to the “Ante” bet winning payment table given below. In case of winning, both the “Call” and “Ante” bets win.

12.8.2. TEXAS HOLDEM (game against the dealer)

 

 

For the game Texas Holdem, the rules of “Casino Holdem” are valid, except for the ones below.

During the game pauses, the player may select “PLAY” or “CHECK”. At the beginning of the game, when the player makes the “Ante” bet, the system automatically installs a Blind bet with the same value, which is also automatically charged from the player’s balance (“Blind” bet is mandatory and is automatically made together with “Ante” bet).

The “Play” bet gives the player three different opportunities for raising the “Ante” bet during the round.

- The first chance when the first two cards are dealt, the player decides to make the “Ante” bet or “Play” 4x (make raise for 4 times) or “Play” 3x (make raise for 3 times) or “Check” (not to make raise). If you choose “Play” 4x or “Play” 3x, you will not be offered an extra decision option to increase the bet, and the chip with corresponding value (“Play” 4x or “Play” 3x) will be placed in the “Play” section. If you select “Check”, the second option to increase the bet is offered in the current round.

- The second chance when the last 3 common cards (called “Flop”) are dealt. If the “Check” command had been selected in the previous round, now the player is given the opportunity to choose either “Play” 2x (make raise for 2 times) or “Check”. After selecting the option “Play” 2x, no further bet increase option is offered in this game, and the corresponding chip value (“Play” 2x) is placed in the “Play” section. When selecting “Check”, the player is offered the third chance to increase the bet in the current round.

- The third option when the last two cards are dealt (called “Turn” and “River”). When selecting “Check” in the previous game, the player will be given the option to select or “Play” 1x (make raise for 1 time) or “Fold”. When selecting “Fold”, the “Play” 1x bet is not made and the player loses the “Ante” and “Blind” bets.

The player can increase the “Ante” bet only once. From the process of bet increase above, it is visible that the sooner he increasees the bet, the bigger the bet will be and the faster he can win. To “Check” means to do nothing: the player just saves his initial bet. To decide the winner, the “Hands” with the dealer’s and player’s 5-card combinations with the best winning odds are formulated and compared between the player and the dealer.  

 

“TRIPS” EXTRA BET

 

The extra bet “Trips” is made upon the player’s wish which is applied after the mandatory “Ante” bet is made. After completing the “Ante” bet, the field for “Trips” extra bet will be activated. The size of Trips bets is equal to the “Ante” bet limit.

All bets must be placed before the end of the betting time. After the end of the bets acceptance, the dealer starts dealing the cards. During the round, the player is offered to make a “Play” bet, but the “Play” bet player’s decision does not affect the result of the Tips bets. At the end of the round, the dealer opens all his cards and announces the result. The winning of Trips bet is based on the value of the player’s best 5 cards out of 7 and wins regardless of the dealer’s hand or whether the player makes a “Play” bet or not.

 

Game results and payments

 

The results are decided by comparing the player’s and dealer’s combinations of best 5-card (combining the player’s/dealer’s 2 cards with the common 5 cards).

The dealer should have at least “A pair” or a higher combination in his “hand” to be competitive relative to the player’s “hand”.

If the player wins, the winnings of “Ante” and “Play” bets are paid in the following way:

- The “Ante” bet is paid 1:1 if the dealer makes a pair or higher combination (two pairs, three of a kind, etc.).

- The “Ante” bet is considered a draw if the dealer does not announce the combination.

- The “Play” bet is paid 1:1 regardless of the dealer’s combination.

In case of winning, both “Blind” and “Ante” bets win.

12.11. TOTO 21

 

 

Toto 21 – this is a kind of card game that is designed for two players. The game starts when one of the players creates a new game, and the 2nd joins to the already created game.

The terms of the game are announced by the player who creates a new game (until how many points (2, 4, 6, 8 and 10) the game should last, the duration of the move (5s, 10s, 15s) and the whole game (2m, 3m, 4m 5m, 6m, 7m), as well as the stake) and the player joining the game accepts these terms. The player who creates the table decides if he wants to play with the opponent who is joining the table or not. The game starts only in case of positive answer.

The essence of the game is to collect as many points as possible but not more than 21.

The winner of each round will score 1 point. Cards of all the suits participate in the game: 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K, A.

- The values ​​of 6-10 cards are calculated by their nominal values

- A – 11 or 1

- K – 4

- Q – 3

- J – 2

At the beginning of each game, the system selects randomly one of the two players as a dealer who gets the corresponding button and the other – as a player. The right for the first step is given to the player. At the beginning of the game two cards are dealt. If the player’s point don’t reach 21, then he can take more cards by pressing the HIT ME button. In case of reaching enough points the players presses STAND button and passes the right for the move to the dealer. The player who has more point (not exceeding 21) becomes the winner. The dealer/player loses if he has more than 21 points. In case of equal points the dealer earns one point, the player loses. In case if both of the players have earned more than 21 points one more round will be started and the winner will get 2 points.

 

Golden point: if the player gets 2 Ace cards at the beginning of the game the player is considered a winner of the round by default except for the case when the dealer owns 2 Ace cards (in case of having 1 Ace, the second face down card is also opened). In this case the dealer is considered the winner of the game.

 

According to the rules of the game, the player gets the opportunity to choose, Blind Card, the right for using which is provided to the game created with that option (the dealer can’t use this opportunity) only by the program. In case of using the Blind Card, one face down card is dealt to the player which is opened only at the end of the game and the right for the move passes to the dealer.

 

Closed game

 

A function called “Closed game” is available at Toto 21. If the player has created or joined to a table with “Closed game” function, then in case of being chosen as a “Player” by the program his cards will be open only for him and closed for his opponent (dealer chosen by the program). In case of being chosen as a dealer by the program not his cards will be closed but rather the opponent’s (player chosen by the program) ones. To play with closed cards it is necessary to choose the “Closed game” function while creating a table or to join such a table created already.

In case of the game created with the function “Closed game”, two cards are dealt first. In this case, all the cards of the player and only the first card of the dealer are open for the player. The dealer can see only his cards. If the player’s cards don’t reach 21 points then he can take more cards which will be open for him and closed for the dealer. The player can press the STAND button any time, after that, the opportunity move goes to the dealer. The Dealer can also take or not additional cards and press the STAND button at any time, after which all the cards are opened for the dealer and the player.

The player with a higher score (up to 21 points) is considered the winner. If the points are equal, the dealer will score 1 point, and the player will lose.

Both the dealer and the player are considered lost in the round if they have more than 21 points.

In case if both players collect more than 21 points, as many rounds will be played until one of the players wins in any of the rounds. In that case, the winner will earn points corresponding to the number of the rounds. For example, if both players have collected more than 21 points for 3 consecutive rounds, and on the next round one of them wins, then he gets 4 points, i.e. points equal to that round + the 3 previous rounds (each round - 1 point, i.e. 3+1=4 points). If at the moment of creating the game the game was decided to end after 2 victories, then in the above mentioned situation the game would end up with 4:0.

Golden point”: if in the beginning of the game the “Player” gets 2 Ace cards, then he needs to press STAND, if the dealer owns 2 Aces, then the latter is the winner, otherwise the “Player” becomes the winner.

 

 

12.12. BELOTE

 

 

In Belote, the dealer does not accept bets for the game but charges rake (commission) for the gaming space. The rake is defined 4% which is automatically charged by the program from the winning fund of the bets of 2 opponents playing against each other (this does not refer to the tournaments).

 

“CHANGE CARD” OPTION IN BELOTE

 

In Classic Belote, while creating a table, there is an opportunity to choose an option “Change card”. With this function, the player can change any card in Classic Belote. In this case, the player needs to choose the option “Change card” while creating the table, or to join to such a table.

The function “Change card” is activated only after the deal of all (9 cards in total) cards. During each hand, before the 1st move, the player has 1 opportunity to change any of his cards. The player can change any of his cards. The new card is randomly chosen by the system. After the change of each card, the system charges 10% of the bet amount from the player’s gaming account.

For example, if the player makes a bet of 10,000 AMD or joins to such a table in Classic Belote, the in case of card change, 1,000 AMD will be charged from his gaming account.  

In case if the player has chosen the option “Double stake” and multiplied the bet, after the card change 10% of the changed bet is charged form his account.

For example, if the player makes a bet of 1,000 AMD or joins such a table of Classic Belote, and multiplies the bet by 4 times during the game, making it 4,000 AMD, then in case of card change, 400 AMD will be charged from his account.

 

“DOUBLE STAKE” OPTION IN BELOTE

 

1. In Classic Belote, while creating a table, there is an option to choose “Double stake”.

2. Creating a game with the “Double stake”, the bet amount and the game conditions should be entered. Putting the appropriate sign in front of the “Double stake” line, the maximum number which allows to choose the corresponding multiplier (X2, X4, X8, X16, X32, X64) will be opened.

3. This option allows to double the main bet for several times. In the game with “Double stake” option the smallest multiplier of the main bet is 2, the biggest – 64 which is valid for the maximum bet entered by the player who created the game beforehand.

4. To use the option “Double stake”, the player needs to choose that option beforehand or join the already created “Double stake” table, accepting the game conditions. In this case, the player can see the amount of the main bet of the created table and the maximum bet limit for the “Double stake” option for that table.

5. Pressing the “Play” button, the player can join the table and start the game in case of having enough money on his account. After joining the game, the maximum bet amount will be immediately charged from the player. Otherwise, the player will have no opportunity to use the option to join the game, and a pop-up will appear on the screen about insufficient amount on the gaming account.

6. In case of “Double stake” game, it starts from the middle of the table and this option can be used by the player who should make that move.

7. The player who chooses the trump first according to the rules of the game, can also use the “Double stake” option first before choosing the trump. To use the option “Double stake”, the player must press the “Double stake” icon.

8. After using the option “Double stake”, the player chooses the trump and starts the game. The player can also use the “Double stake” option after choosing the trump.

9. In case of using the “Double stake” option, the opponent must necessarily accept the offer for doubling the bet, otherwise he loses. In case of pressing the “Surrender” button, the opponent will lose.

10. If the player who has chosen the first trump does not want to double the bet or choose the trump, then the choice of trump and the option to double the bet passes to the opponent. In this case, the opponent can use the “Double stake” option only before choosing the trump. The double stakes can last as long as the players’ maximum inputted amount is over or the main bet are multiplied by 64 times, after the “Double stake” sign disappears from the table.

11. The player can use the “Double stake” option during the whole game or one hand.

12. Тhe amount not used during the game is refunded to the player’s account after the end of the game.

13. The players can double the stake even once: in this case, the residual amount (balance) will be refunded to the players’ accounts after the end of the game.

For example, if the players have doubled the stake only once on a “Double stake” table with maximum limit of 2,000 AMD and with a 200 AMD main bet, then in case of losing the doubled stake is deducted from the player’s maximum 2,000 AMD amount, and the residual amount is refunded to the player account. For example, 2,000 AMD maximum amount - 400 AMD doubled stake = 1,600 AMD balance.

 

 

CLASSIC BELOTE RULES

 

This type of Belote card game is intended for 2 players. The game starts when one of the players creates a new game or joins to an already created one. It is also allowed to view other players’ game if it is not created as a private game.

The terms are defined by the player who creates the game (play up to 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, or until 51, 101, play with “4 cards” and 100, with only tierce or without combinations, as well as the bet amount, choose “Double stake” and “Change card” options), and the one who joins to the created game accepts these terms. The player who created the table decides whether he wants to play with the opponent who is joining the table or not. The game starts only in case of positive feedback.

All the suits participate in the game: 9, 10, J, Q, K, A. At the beginning of each round each of the players gets 6 cards, after which the players decide the trump (see below). After deciding the trump, each players gets 3 more cards. The player who decides the trump also gets 3 cards one of which can be the opened card upon his wish (if the opened card was not chosen as a trump by both players).

The offer to choose a trump is made randomly by the players regardless of the fact which players has created the table. If he chooses the offered trump, the game is started from him, if not - the opportunity to choose passes to the opponent. In case if the latter takes a card, it becomes the game’s trump. The first move is made by the player who had received the opportunity to choose the trump first. Otherwise, this opportunity passes to the first player again, and the system offers itself to choose a trump from the remaining 3 suits or choose a game “No Trump” (if the game was created with that option). The game starts when the first player chooses a trump from the offered cards, otherwise the second player is obliged to choose one of those 3 suits or a game “No Trump” (if the game was created with that option). In this case the game starts from the first player as well. If the trump offered is a J, and the first player does not take it after the offer from the system, then the second player is obliged to take it.

Each trump is higher than each non-trump suit card. The player making the first move has the right to play with any card, and the opponent may answer according to the following rules:

1. If the player who started the game has played with a non-trump suit card, and the opponent has a card of the same suit, then the latter must answer with a card of the same suit.

2. If the player who started the game has played with a non-trump suit card, and the opponent does not have a card of the same suit but has a trump, then he must answer with the trump. In case of not having a trump it is possible to play with any card.

3. If the player who started the game has played with a trump, and the opponent has a higher trump, then he must play with a higher trump. In case of not having a higher trump but having any trump, he must play only with a trump. In case of not having a trump, he can play with any card.

 

Card calculation 

 

After each round, the players’ winning cards are calculated based on the points and the combinations owned.

The sum of all cards makes up 152 points, and besides these, extra 10 points are added up to the points of the player who “took” the last had. If one of the players takes all the cards of the opponent, it means that he has made a capot to the opponent, and 50 more points are added up to his 162 points.

The player who has chosen the trump wins in case if the sum of the points and combinations taken by him are exceeding or equal to the points taken by the opponent. Otherwise, he loses. If in the current hand the points of the player who has taken the trump are equal to the opponent’s points, for example, (72+0)-(52+20), then the player who has taken the trump wins in this hand. In case if the points for the whole game are equal (for example, 51-51), the game is continued with the same logic until one player’s total points exceed the other’s total points.

 

The following combinations bring extra points:

 

Belote – “King” and “Queen” of the trump suit – 20 points

Tierce – 3 consecutive cards of the same suit (for example, 9, 10, J or J, Q, K, etc.) – 20 points

50 – 4 consecutive cards of the same suit – 50 points

100 – 5 consecutive cards of the same suit – 100 points

4 cards – 4 cards of the same value in all suits

 

THE CARD VALUES IN GAMES WITH TRUMP AND NO TRUMP

 

In this case, depending on the cards and choice of trump, the points are different:

If the player has a K and a Q of the trump suit, then he earns extra 20 points (Belote-Rebelote). The player can have several of these combinations at once but they are counted in case if they don’t overlap.

If the player has a combination, he should declare about it beforehand (before the first round), pressing the corresponding button. Before the second step the player must show the combination, otherwise it will not be counted as a point. The player with the higher combination wins. The highest combinations in descending order: 4 cards, 100, 50, tierce. If both players have the same combinations, the one with a higher rank passes. “Rank” is considered to be the higher card of the given combination (e.g. in the tierce combination J, Q, K – the King is the highest). If players have combinations with the same rank, the one with a trump passes. If none of the players has a trump, the points of the player who started playing first are counted. In case of 4 cards, the ranks have the following descending order:

 

In case of a game with Trump – J, 9, A, 10, K, Q

In case of a game with No Trump – A, 10, K, Q, J

For the other combinations  A, K, Q, J, 10, 9

 

If the player forgets to show his combination, the opponent can show his combination before the next step.

 

 

GAME “WITH NO TRUMP”

 

The rules of the game “With No Trump” are the following:

While creating a table when putting a sign in front of “No Trump” line, during each hand an opportunity is given to choose a game with or without trump. In case of a game without trump, the highest card is counted. The opportunity to choose a trump is given to the player who is creating the table. In case if he and the opponent don’t want to choose the trump offered, a window is opened, and the player who created the table is offered to choose a trump out of the remaining 3 suits or to choose a game “With No Trump”, the symbol of which is A, as well as is given a chance to take the card opened on the table. In case of games with this option it is also impossible to declare “4 cards” combination out f “9” cards, as no point is given for this combination.

 

 

OPEN BELOTE RULES

Cards of all suits participate in the game: 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K, A.

The players get 16 cards each: 8 pairs put on each other, the upper 8 of which are opened after choosing the “Trump”, the lower 8 are opened during the game if the move was made with the cards on these cards. In the beginning of the game, the first 4 out of 8 upper cards dealt to the players are opened, after which the players get the opportunity to choose any suit for trump, as well as the rank (if the game was created without trump).

The trump suit selection is made randomly regardless of the fact which player has created the table, as well as the player who randomly received the opportunity to choose the trump makes the first move. If the player who was offered to choose the trump does not choose any trump, the opportunity passes to the opponent. If the opponent doesn’t make a choice, too, the upper 4 closed cards are opened as well and the choice opportunity goes to the first player again, and the latter can choose any suit or “without trump” (if the game was created with a without trump option). If somehow, the first player doesn’t want to choose the trump one more time, the opponent has to make an obligatory choice of trump.

The trump cards are higher than the equal rank ones of non-trump suits. The player to make the first step may play any card. The opponent must response according to the following rules:

1. If a regular (non-trump) card is played, the opponent answer with a card of the same suit.

2. If the opponent doesn’t have a card of the played suit, he may response with a trump card. In case he doesn't have a trump card he can play any card.

3. If a trump card is played, the opponent must overtrump. In case he does not have a higher trump, he may play with any trump card. If there are no trumps the participant can play any card.

The highest trump card wins the hand. If no trump has been played, the highest card of the played suit or the trump wins the hand. The cards sequence in the descending order: J, 9, A, 10, K, Q, 8, 7 (for the trump suit), A, 10, K, Q, J, 9, 8, 7 (if the game with No Trumps) and A, 10, K, Q, J, 9, 8, 7 (other suits).

The cards are counted after every round according to the points and combinations.

The sum of all cards is 152 points. Besides, 10 extra points top up the score of the player “taking” the last hand. If one of the players takes all cards of the opponent, the latter is announced “Capot” with extra 50 points to be added to the former’s 162 points.

The player choosing the trump card wins in case if the sum of his points and combinations is higher or equal to the opponent’s points. Otherwise, he loses. In case the points of the participant, who chose the trump, are equal to the points of the opponent, e.g. (72+0)-(52+20), the participant that chose the trump wins the hand. In case the game total points are equal (for example, 51-51 in a game up to 51), the game continues with the same logic until total points of one of the participants exceed the opponent’s total points.

 

Belote-Rebelote – King (K) and Queen (Q) of the trump suit – 20 points

Tierce – a sequence of three cards of the same suit (for example, 9, 10, J or J, Q, K, etc.) – 20 points

50 – a sequence of four cards of the same suit – 50 points

100 – a sequence of five cards of the same suit – 100 points

4 cards – cards of the same value from all 4 suits


The points of “4 cards” combination differ depending on the card rank:

1․ J – 200 points

2. 9 140 points

3. A 110 points

4. K, Q, 10 – 100 points

 

In this version of the game “4 card” combinations of 7 and 8 are not declared (in case of game with No Trump the 4 cards of “9” as well).

If the player has a K and a Q of the trump suit, then he earns extra 20 points (Belote-Rebelote). The participant can have several of the above mentioned combinations simultaneously but they are counted if they don’t overlap. During the round before each step (before throwing a card) the player is allowed to announce the existing combination. In case if the declared combination is getting higher, it is possible to declare one more combination, and if the already declared high combination is reduced by one card, the smaller combination that is already a part of the declared combination is impossible to declare (for example, if a tierce combination made up from 10, J, Q of clubs is declared, then later on during the same round if a K is opened it is possible to declare also a “50” combination, and vice versa: in case of having 10, J, Q, K of clubs it is possible to declare only the “50” combination and later on during the same round after throwing 10 or K of clubs it is impossible to declare the lower combination – “Tierce”).

Combinations are counted after the player announces about them. The announcements must be made before playing a card of the combination. If the combination is not announced, the points cannot be counted. During the game there may appear several combinations, all of which top up the total account if announced. According to the Open Belote rules, all combinations of both players count regardless of the opponent’s combinations rank.

 

 

6 CARD BELOTE 

 

This type of “Belote” game is intended for 2 players. The game starts with one of the players creating a new game or joining the already created one. It is also possible to watch the other players’ game, unless the latter was created as a “Private game”.

The game creator defines the terms ((play up to 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, or until 51, 101, play with “4 cards” and 100, or without them, as well as the bet amount). The player joining the already created game accepts the terms. The game creator chooses whether to play with the given opponent or not. The game starts only in case of a positive answer.

Cards of all suits participate in the game: 9, 10, J, Q, K, A. In the beginning of each round the players receives 3 cards each, after which the players decide the trump suit (see below). After choosing the trump, 3 more cards are dealt. The one who chose the trump is given 3 cards including the trump card chosen by him.

The offer to choose a trump is made randomly regardless of the fact which player has created the table. If he chooses the offered trump, the game is started from him, otherwise the opportunity passes to the opponent. If the latter takes a card, it becomes a trump. The first move is made by the player who had received the opportunity to choose the trump first. Otherwise, the opportunity to choose again passes to the first player, and the system itself offers to choose a trump from the 3 suits or to choose the game without trump (if the game was created without trump).

The game starts when the first player chooses a trump from the cards offered, otherwise the second player is obliged to choose one of these 3 suits or the game without trump (if the game was created without trump). In this case the game starts from the first player as well. If the trump offered is a J, and the first player does not take it after the first request made by the system, then the 2nd player must take it.

Each trump is higher than each non-trump suit card. The player making the first move has the right to play with any card, and the opponent may answer according to the following rules:

If the player who started the game has played with a non-suit card, and the opponent has a card of the same suit, then the latter must answer with a card of the same suit.

If the player who started the game has played with a non-suit card, and the opponent does not have a card of the same suit but has a trump, then he must answer with the trump. In case of not having a trump it is possible to play with any card.

If the player who started the game has played with a trump, and the opponent has a higher trump, then he must play with a higher trump. In case of not having a higher trump but having any trump, he must play only with a trump. In case of not having a trump, he can play with any card.

After each round, the players’ winning cards are calculated based on the points and the combinations owned.

The sum of all cards makes up 152 points, and besides these, extra 10 points are added up to the points of the player who “took” the last had. If one of the players takes all the cards of the opponent, it means that he has made a capot to the opponent, and 50 more points are added up to his 162 points.

The player who has chosen the trump wins in case if the sum of the points and combinations taken by him are exceeding or equal to the points taken by the opponent. Otherwise, he loses. If in the current hand the points of the player who has taken the trump are equal to the opponent’s points, for example, (72+0)-(52+20), then the player who has taken the trump wins in this hand. In case if the points for the whole game are equal (for example, 51-51 in a game up to 51), the game is continued with the same logic until one player’s total points exceed the other’s total points.

 

The following combinations bring extra points:

 

Belote – “King” and “Queen” of the trump suit – 20 points

Tierce – 3 consecutive cards of the same suit (for example, 9, 10, J, or J, Q, K, etc.) – 20 points

50 – 4 consecutive cards of the same suit – 50 points

100 – 5 consecutive cards of the same suit – 100 points

4 cards – 4 cards of the same value in all suits

If the player has a K and a Q of the trump suit, then he earns extra 20 points (Belote-Rebelote). The player can have several of these combinations at once but they are counted in case if they don’t overlap.

If the owner has a combination, he should declare about it beforehand (before the first round), pressing the corresponding button. Before the second step the player must show the declaration (combination), otherwise it will not be counted as a point. The player with the higher combination wins. The highest combinations in descending order: 4 cards, 100, 50, and tierce. If both players have the same combinations, the one with a higher rank passes (e.g. in the tierce J, Q, K – the King is the highest).

If players have combinations with the same rank, the one with a trump passes. If none of the players has a trump, the points of the player who started playing first are counted.

 

In case of 4 cards, the ranks have the following descending order:

1. In case of a game with trump – J, 9, A, 10, K, Q

2. In case of a game with No Trump – A, 10, K, Q, J

3. For the other combinations – A, K, Q, J, 10, 9

 

If the player forgets to show his combinations, the opponent can show his combination before the next step.

 

 

12.12.1. BACKGAMMON

 

 

Backgammon is a game for 2 players. The organizer does not accept bets on this game but charges a commission (rake) for the gaming space provided by him.

The rake is 4%, which the program charges automatically from the winning fund formed from the bets of the opponents playing against each other (this does not refer to the tournaments).

The organizer gives his players an opportunity to play 7 types of Backgammon: Short, Armenian, Long, Blitz, Pioneer, Hyper and Nack. The game starts when one of the players creates a new game or joins to an existing game. It is also possible to view the other players’ game only if it is not a private one.

The new game (table) creator defines the terms: play with the game score (to 1, to 3, to 5, to 7, to 9, to 11, to 51, to 101), play total time (2m, 3m, 4m, 5m, 6m), the duration of the move (3s, 5s, 10s, 20s, 30s), the extra opportunities (Doubling (Cube), Koks, Beaver, Jacoby rule, roll the dice again), as well as the bet amount, and the player joining the game accepts these terms.

The player who creates the table decides if he wants to play with the opponent who is joining the table or not. The game starts only in case of positive answer.

One player can play simultaneously on 1-3 tables. In the beginning of the game, the dice are rolled automatically, and the player who gets a higher score makes the first move. Afterward, the moves are made consecutively by the players.

 

Additional rules

 

1. Doubling (Cube): each Backgammon game starts at one point. During the game, a player may offer Doubling the score. He may offer the dubling only at the start of his own move and before he has rolled the dice. In case the player who is offered the dubling refuses, the game is over and player loses one point. In case of accepting the doubling, the game continues with a doubled score. The doubling passes to the player who accepted the doubling who can also double his score now. The return score doubling in the same game is called redoubling (beaver). If a player refuses a redouble, he loses the number of points that were at stake prior to the redouble. If a player accept a redouble, he becomes the new owner of the cube and the game continues at twice the previous score. There is no limit to the number of redoubles.

 

2. Beaver: when a player is doubled, he may redouble (beaver) while retaining possession of the cube. The original doubler has the option to accept or refuse.

 

3. Jacoby rule: Mars and Koks count as a one point only if neither player has offered a double during the game. This rule speeds up play by eliminating situations where a player avoids doubling so he can play on for a Mars.

 

4. Crawford’s rule: According to Crawford’s rule, if in a series of games (i.e. in a match) one of the players needs just one point to win, in the next game the doubling (cube) is not available (only in one game).

Example: assume that 2 players play a match up to 7 points. If the score is 6-2, in the next game the doubling (cube) will not be available. However, if the lagging behind player wins, the score becomes 6-3, and in the next game the doubling (cube) will be again available.

 

5. Mars and Koks: if the losing player has borne off at least one checker, he loses only the value showing on the cube (one point, if there has been no doubling). However, if the loser has not borne off any of his checkers, he loses by Mars the twice value point. Moreover, if the loser has not managed to bear off any checker, and one or more of his checkers stay at the bar or at the courtyard, then he loses by Koks the tripled value point.

 

“Roll the dice again” function on Backgammon table

 

“Roll the dice again” function is available when creating a table in all the Backgammon types (Short, Armenian, Long, Blitz, Pioneer, Hyper, Nack).

With this function, the Player has an opportunity to roll one or both dice again at any moment in the game.

While creating a Backgammon table the player chooses whether he wants to activate the function “Roll the dice again” or not, and, if yes, then he chooses how many of the dice he wants to roll again during the game: one or both. It’s impossible to choose both options simultaneously.

After choosing the option to roll one or both dice the player chooses how many times he wants to roll the dice during one round.

In case of rerolling the rolled die or dice, the new dice are rolled randomly by the system. After each reroll of the dice, the system charges an amount at 10% (in case of rolling a die) or 5% (in case of rolling the dice) of the stake from the player’s account.

For example, if the player creates a table with a 100 AMD stake or joins to such a table, then in case of rolling the die again the player will be charged 10 AMD, in case of dice – 5 AMD.

 

How to roll the dice again

 

The player can change the dice rolled by him during the game, pressing “Roll the dice again” button. In case of rolling a die again, the player will be offered to choose the dice which he wants to roll again after which he must confirm his choice. In case of rolling both dice again, the player must just press the button “Roll the dice again” and confirm.

 

 

SHORT BACKGAMMON

 

Rules of the game

           

Short backgammon is a game for 2 players. It is played on a board consisting of twenty-four triangles called points. The triangles are grouped into four quadrants of six triangles in each. The quadrants are referred to as a player’s home board and outer board, and the opponent’s home board and outer board. The home and outer boards are separated from each other by a ridge called the bar.

 

 

 

Picture 1. A board with the checkers in their initial position

 

 

Each player has fifteen checkers. The player checkers are of different colors, usually – black and white. The initial arrangement of checkers is: 2 on each player’s 24th point, 5 on each player’s 13th point, 3 on each player’s 8th point, and 5 on each player’s 6th point (refer to Figure 1). Two dice which are needed to decide the moves, are used in the game with numeration 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6, as well as doubling (cube) which is needed to double the game score.

Koks and doubling (cube) is a mandatory rule in Short Backgammon.

 

Game Objective

 

The game objective is to move all the checkers into your own house and then bear them off. The first player to bear off all of his checkers wins the game.

 

 

Picture 2. Direction of movement of White’s checkers. Opponent’s checkers move in the opposite direction

 

 

The movement of checkers

 

To start the game, each player throws a die. This determines both which player will start first and the numbers to be played. If equal numbers come up, then both players roll the dice again until they roll different numbers.

The player throwing the higher number moves his checkers first according to the numbers showing on both dice.

After the first roll, the players throw two dice and move according to the numbers on them. The roll of the dice indicates how many points the player can move his checkers.

 

The following rules apply for the moves:

 

1. A checker may be moved only to an open point, one that is not occupied by two or more opposing checkers.

2. The numbers on the two dice constitute separate moves. For example, if a player rolls 5 and 3, he may move one checker 3 spaces to an open point and another checker 5 spaces to an open point, or he may move one checker a total of 8 (5 + 3) spaces to an open point, but only if the intermediate point (5 or 3 spaces from the starting point) is also open (see figure 2 and 3).

 

 

Picture 3. Two ways that White can play a roll of

 

 

3. A player who rolls doubles, he makes 4 moves: 2 moves for each number of a die. A roll of 6:6 means that the player has four moves of six to make.

4. A player must use both numbers of a roll (or all four numbers in case of a double) if it is allowed by the terms. When only one number can be played, the player must play that number. If both numbers can be played separately but not together, the player must play the larger one. When there is no way to move, the player loses his turn. In the case of doubles, the player must make as many moves as possible.

 

Game score

 

The situation when the loser was able to remove at least one checker is called a “oin” (match, set) defeat (0-1).

The situation when a player has removed all his checkers, and the other has not removed any yet, is called “mars” (0-2).

 

Hitting a checker

 

A point occupied by a single checker is called a blot. If a checker of the opposite colour lands on that blot, the checker is considered hit and replaced to the bar. Any time one or more checkers are on the bar, the player has to enter those checkers first, starting from the the opposing house board. The checker on the bar is moved it to an open point corresponding to one of the numbers on the rolled dice if the prospective point is not occupied by two or more of the opponent’s checkers (see figure 4).

 

 

Picture 4. If the player has rolled a 6 and 4 but one of the checkers is on the bar,

then he must move the checker to the opponent’s 4th point since the opponent’s 6th point is occupied by checkers.

 

 

If neither of the points corresponding to the rolled numbers is open, the player loses his turn. If a player play with some but not all of his checkers, he must make all the possible moves and then forfeit the remainder of his turn. After the last of a player’s checkers has been removed from the bar, one can move any checker.

 

Bearing off

 

Once a player has moved all of his fifteen checkers into his home board, he may start bearing them off. It is done the following way: a player rolls a number and bears off the checkers that are placed on the corresponding points (see figure 5). For example, if number 6 was rolled, one can bear off the checker from the 6th point. In case of rolling a double, 4 checkers are born off the number shown on dice, i.e. if 6:6 is rolled, the player can bear 4 checkers off the point number 6.

If there is no checker on the point indicated by the roll, the player is allowed to make a legal move using a checker on a higher-numbered point. A player is under no obligation to bear off if he can make other moves.

 

 

Picture 5. 4 and 6 were rolled. 2 checkers are born off.

 

 

A player must have all of his active checkers in his home board in order to bear off. If a checker is hit during the bearing-off process, the player must bring that checker back to his home board only after that continue to bear off. The first player to bear off all fifteen checkers wins the game.

 

The terms of Armenian, Nack and Hyper backgammons are basically the same as Short Backgammon terms except for the following points:

1. Armenian Backgammon: if the player hits a single checker in the opponent's home board, he can’t continue his move with the same checker, besides doubling (cube) is not applied in Armenian Backgammon.

2. Nack and Hyper Backgammon types differ only in their initial positioning (see figure 6 (Nack) and figure 7 (Hyper)).

Koks is used in Hyper and Nack only as format terms: if the player has not marked Koks while creating a table, then this option is not used in the game.

LONG BACKGAMMON

 

The rules of the game

 

The starting position

 

Long backgammon is a game intended for two players. A special board divided into two halves (left and right) is used in the game. Each player has 15 checkers which are placed along right side of his boards’ half (see picture 1). The players’ checker sets have different colours, commonly they are white and black. The players use 2 dice (zars) numbered 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 which are used to decide the moves in the game.

 

 

Picture 1: the initial arrangement of checkers

 

 

The initial arrangement of checkers (24th and 12th points) is called “head” and the move from that position is called “head move” (“take from the head”). During one head move the player can take only one checker.

Before the game each player throws one die to decide who is making the first move and what numbers will use it for that. If the numbers is similar, the players have to repeat their throws until the numbers differ.

 The right of the first move receives the one who throws out a higher score, and the score defines how many moves he should make. After the first move the players throw dice one after the other and move according to the scores on the dice.

 

The sense of the game

 

The player needs to pass with all his checkers a full circle (counter clockwise) and enter with them into “home” and then “throw them out” before the same does his opponent. The “home” for each player is the last quarter of the playing field, which comes after 18 squares from the “head”.

When the player brings all his 15 checkers “home”, he can start moving them out of the board. The winner is the player who moves out of the board all his checkers first.

 

The checker moves

 

The player throws 2 dice at once.

After throwing the dice the player makes as many moves as the points shown on the dice with one of the checkers, then moves any other checker with the corresponding number of the second dice.

So, if one die shows 3, the other - 5, then one checker needs to make 3 moves, the other - 5. In this case, the same checker can make 8 moves (see Picture 2).

There is no difference which move the player makes first, the big or the small one.

 

 

Picture 2

 

 

The first throw of the match is an exception of the rules above.

If the first checker you can take from the head can’t do the full move, it’s possible to take the second one.

There are only three throws that can bring to such situation:

six-six (6:6)

four-four (4:4)

three-three (3:3)

It’s impossible to play the full move by one checker in such situation, because the opponent’s checkers on the head hinder. If it drops out one of those combinations, the player can take two checkers from the head.

Note: If the blacks have thrown out 4:4 after the whites had thrown out 5:5, the blacks need to throw out 2 checker from the head because, regardless of the situation, in case of a 4:4 combination, the blacks throw out 2 checkers from the head.

It’s impossible to move two checkers on the number of squares shown by one dice, and then on a number of squares shown by another one. Other words, if there were thrown out 5:4, player has no opportunity to move one checker on two squares, and the other one on three (to play five scores with two checkers) and then play the same way for the four.

If on the both dice the player has the same score (double, gosh) he can move four times the number of squares that were thrown out on one die.

It’s forbidden to put a block (obstacle, bridge) from six checkers, if there is no opponent’s checker behind of the obstacle (Picture 3).

 

 

Picture 3

 

 

It’s not forbidden to build a six-checker obstacle unless lock all fifteen checkers of opponent. You can build six-checker obstacle only if there is at least one opponent’s checker in front of it.

If the opponent’s checkers occupy six squares in front of any of player’s checker it appears to be locked.

If the checkers are locked in such a way that the player can’t make any move according to the score he has thrown out on the dice (the checkers “don’t move”) the score vanishes, and the checkers don’t move at all.

On one square, it is allowed to place an arbitrary number of checkers. Checkers can not be put on a square occupied by opponent’s checker. If the checker gets on an occupied square, it means it “doesn’t move”.

If the player has an opportunity to make the move shown by one of the dice, and has no chance to make the move shown by the other one, he makes only one move. The score of the second move vanishes as the checker doesn’t move.

If the player has an opportunity to make a full move, he can’t reduce it, even if it’s in his interests. It means, if “three” is favorable for the player but he got “six”, he has to move “six”. If the die was thrown out in such a way that the player can make only one move out of two possible ones, he has to choose the higher one and the lower score will vanish.

 “Bear off” means making such a move that the checker is moved out of the board. The checkers can be “born off” only after all the checkers are brought “home”.

When the player brings home all of his 15 checkers, he can start bearing them off the board. It happens in the following way: the dice are thrown and the checkers on the corresponding squares are born off. For example, if 6 was thrown, the die on the 6th square can be born off. In case of double thrown, the checkers are born off 4 times the thrown number. For example, in case of 6:6, the player can bear off 4 times the 6-numerated checkers.

 

If there is no checker on the square corresponding to the number on the die, the player is allowed to move the checkers on the square corresponding to a higher numbered die. If the player can make other moves, he does not have to bear off the dice.

 

Scoring in the game

 

The position, when the loser managed to bear off at least one checker, is called the “oin” (match, set) is lost (0–1).

The position, when one of the players has born off all his checkers, and the opponent hasn’t managed to bear off any of his, is called to put a “mars” (0 – 2).

 

 

PIONEER

 

Pioneer is a type of Backgammon, which is played by two players. The game board consists of 12 triangles called points. The triangles are grouped into two sectors of six triangles each. Those sectors are called home board and opponent’s home board.

Each player has 15 checkers: black and white. The initial arrangement of checkers is: 3 checkers on each of the points 1, 2 and 3, to which the dice numbers 6, 5 and 4 correspond; 2 checkers on points 4, 5 and 6, to which the dice numbers 3, 2 and 1 correspond (see Picture 1).

 

 

Pic. 1

 

 

Object of the Game

 

The object of the game is to move the checkers down on the game board and then bear them off. The first player to bear off all of his checkers wins the game.

 

The movement of checkers

 

To start the game, each player throws a single die. This determines both which player will start first and the numbers to be played. If equal numbers come up, then both players roll the dice again until they roll different numbers. The player throwing the higher number now moves his checkers down onto the game board according to the numbers showing on both dice.

 

After moving down all of his checkers, the player can begin bearing them off the board.

 

The player should use both numbers on the dice. f it’s impossible to play with both numbers, the player should do the possible move.

 

If the rolled dice show a double of 4:4, 5:5 or 6:6, the player makes two moves on the point corresponding to the numbers on dice. If the rolled dice show a double of 1:1, 2:2 or 3:3, the player makes one move on the point corresponding to the numbers on dice.

It is done this way: the player throws the dice and bears off the checkers according to the numbers shown on both dice. If a double is rolled, the player bears only two checkers off the point corresponding to the rolled numbers.

If the losing player has managed to bear at least 1 checker off the board, he loses as many points as he shows doubling (cubes) (if none of the players has not offered a doubling, then 1 point). But if the losing player has not managed to bear any checker off the table, then he loses with a mars and loses the doubled numbered of points. If the players play up to 51, 101, then the points are collected in the following way: after the player bears all his checkers off the board and wins in the game, he scores points according to the arrangement of the opponent’s checkers left on the board. Say, if the opponent has 3 checkers left on point 6 after the end of the game, the winner gets 3x6=18 points, and so on. In case of doubling (cube) the scored points are doubled.

 

 

BLITZ BACKGAMMON

 

The game is played by two players. At the beginning of the game each player has 15 checkers, which are not arranged on the board (Pic. 1):

 

 

Pic. 1. Initial position

 

 

The game creator defines the terms: the game score (to 1, to 3, to 5, to 7, to 9, to 11, to 13, to 15, to 51, to 101), play time (2m, 3m, 4m, 5m, 6m), the duration of the move (10s, 20s, 30s, 40s), the bet amount and the player joining the game accepts these terms.

The player who creates the table decides if he wants to play with the opponent who is joining the table or not. The game starts only in case of positive answer.

The player who collects 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 51, 101 points first, becomes the winner of the whole game.

If the players play up to 51 or 101, they collect the points in the following way: after the player bears all his checkers off the board and wins the game, he scores points according to the arrangement of the opponent’s checkers left on the board. Say, if the opponent has 3 checkers left on point 6 after the end of the game, the winner gets 3x6=18 points, and so on. In case of doubling (cube) the scored points are doubled.

 

Object of the Game

 

The object of the game is to arrange all the checkers on the board and then bear them off by throwing the dice in turn. The first player to bear off all of his checkers wins the game.

 

The movement of checkers

 

To start the game, each player throws a single die. This determines both which player will start first and the numbers to be played. If equal numbers come up, then both players roll the dice again until they roll different numbers. The player throwing the higher number now moves his checkers according to the numbers shown on both dice. For example, if the dice show 6 and 3, the checkers are moved to the corresponding points – points 6 and 3, and all the other checkers are arranged in that way (Pic. 2):

 

 

Pic. 2. Arrangement of checkers after moves 6 and 3

 

 

Bearing off

 

Once a player has moved all of his fifteen checkers to the board, he may commence bearing off. And again, the player throws the dice and bears off the checkers according to the numbers shown on both dice (Pic. 3):

12.12.2․ DOMINO

 

 

Dominoes is a game for two players, during which the chain of dominoes adjoining each other with the same number of pips is built. The organizer offer 4 types to his players։ Classic (traditional), Fives, Threes, Block. The standard set of 28 bones is used in the game.

The organizer does not accept bets for the game but charges rake (commission) for the gaming space. The rake is defined 4% which is automatically charged by the program from the winning fund of 2 opponents’ playing against each other (this does not refer to the tournaments).

The game begins when one of the players creates a new game or joins the already created game. There is also an opportunity to watch the game of other players if it has not been created as a “Private Game”.

The player who creates the game determines its conditions: game score (up to 1, 3, 5, 7, 51,101, 201, 301, 53, 103, 203, 55, 105, 205, 305), game duration (1m, 2m, 3m, 4m, 5m, 6m), step time (5s, 10s, 15s, 20s, 30s), additional options (Winner Gets All, Multi Pair), as well as bet amount.

The player joining the already created game, accepts its conditions. The player who created the game decides whether he/she wants to play with the opponent or not. The game begins only in case of a positive answer.

The first step in the match is taken by the player determined by the draw (the player who gets the bone with lowest double, starting from 1:1 but if both players don’t have a bone with double, then the bone with lowest number counts). The first step is taken by the general rules. The step must be taken only by a double (if available) or with the lowest bone. The first double put, whether it is a first step or not, becomes the basis of the cross – bones can be set on all four sides. All following doubles are standard ones.

Each player can play on 3 tables simultaneously.

If two players have the bones with the same amount of points the player who has the lowest bone becomes the winner.

 

Additional options

 

Winner gets all – additional convention. When selecting this convention the winning player gets the opponent’s remaining scores as well as the sum of bone points from the “Reserve” (all the bones remaining in the closed reserve which were not distributed to the players).

 

Multi pair – is an option in the “Fives” and “Threes” games which allows to take a step with 4 different bones with doubles simultaneously if you would get points after putting those bones.

 

 

CLASSIC (TRADITIONAL) DOMINO

 

Game rules

 

At the beginning each player gets 7 bones. The rest are put in the closed reserve (see Pic. 1).

 

 

Pic. 1

 

 

The first step in the match is taken by the player determined by the draw (the player who gets the bone with lowest double, starting from 1:1 but if both players don’t have a bone with double, then the bone with lowest number counts) (see Pic. 2).

 

 

Pic. 2

 

 

The following players put bones with the suitable points. If there is no suitable bone, need to find a needed domino in the “Reserve”. A player who cannot take any step, selects bones from the “Reserve” until he finds a bone with the needed points or the “Reserve” is over.

The game is over when one player puts the last bone, i.e. no dominoes remain on his hand. After that the calculation of opponent’s points take place which are transferred to the player who won.

The game can end by the “block” – a case when there comes a blocking of steps, when you still have bones but you can put nothing (see Pic. 3).

In case of “block” the prize belongs to the player who has the less points. His prize includes also the difference of remaining points between him and the opponent.

FIVES

 

Game rules

 

Fives Dominoes is also called Muggins Domino.

The rules of this game are similar to the Classic domino game rules. The only difference is the game purpose: not only go out but put bones that score 5 points at the end (or can be divided by five).

The first step in the match is taken by the player determined by the draw (the player who gets the bone with lowest double, starting from 1:1 but if both players don’t have a bone with double, then the bone with lowest number counts). In the beginning, each player gets 7 bones. The rest of the bones remain in the “Reserve”.

The first double, whether it is a first step or not, becomes the basis of the cross – bones can be set on all four sides. All the following doubles are standard ones. If the player cannot take a step, he takes bones from the “Reserve” until he finds the needed bone. The game is over if the needed bone is not found.

If the player is left with only 1 bone – 0:0, it is counted as 25 points.

 

Multi Pair

 

“Multi Pair” is an option in the “Fives” games which allows to take a step with 4 different bones with doubles simultaneously if you would get points after putting those bones.

In the “Fives” type of Domino, after choosing the corresponding pairs, the bones will be accepted only in case if the sum of the bones is divisible by 5.

For example, if the bone 1:1 is surrounded by 1:0, 1:5, 1:4 and 1:6 bones from 4 sides, i.e. the sum of the surrounding bone points is 15, then in case of having 0:0, 6:6, 4:4 and 5:5 bones with doubles, the player can put all these bone simultaneously, making up 30 points. For that, he/she needs to press on the corresponding buttons and confirm. Upon wish, he can play with only 1, 2, or 3 of these bones with doubles during one step.

 

The purpose of the “Fives” game

 

The purpose of the game is to get a certain number of points (51,101, 201, 301). Points are awarded to the player when he puts a bone and the pips value of the open ends is equal to 5 or divisible by 5 (5, 10, 15, 20 and so on).

 

 

Pic. 4

 

 

2, 3 or 4 (only 2 without a cross) ends can be opened at any time of the game. In case of cross which sets double the scoring includes all four ends (after its closing from both sides). The standard double scores its total value (6:6 – 12 points).

 

Samples (Pic. 4)

a. If the first bone put is 5-5, the player gets 10 points. At this moment all sides of a 5-5 double are available to play.

b. If the second bone is 5-0, the player gets 10 points. At this moment three sides by 5 are available as well as the blank one.

c. If the third 3-5 bone is put beside the 5-5 double, the value is 3 (3 + 0) and the player gets no score. If after the 3-5 the next player puts 0-2, then the amount makes 5 (3 + 2) and the player who puts 0-2 gets 5 points. The upper and lower parts of the cross 5-5 remain available to play as well as the open 3 and 2.

d. After 4 steps taken 5-4 is put on the top of 5-5, the 2-2 double is put on the 0-2, 2-5 is put on 2-2, 3-3 double is put on 3-5. The sum makes 15 points (4 + 3 + 3 + 5). Now 4 ends are open: 5-5, 3-3, 4, and 5 on the bottom of the cross. The 2-2 and 3-3 doubles are the standard ones – the upper and lower parts of the cross are not available to play.

 

The game ends when one of the players puts all his bones or when the game is blocked (“block”). The player who won (in case of “block”, the one who took the last step) gets the prize points: the opponent’s points are summed up. The got points are added to the winner. All players remain their points received during the game.

The player who is left with no bone, receives the points of the opponent’s remaining bones which is divided by 5.

For example, if the winner’s points are equal to 27, then this number is rounded down to 25, if 28, then rounded up to the nearest number divisible by 5, i.e. 30. These points are summed up and passed to the winner. If all the players are blocked, the hand with the lowest points wins, still earning points based on the pips in opponents' hands.

 

 

THREES

 

Game rules

 

The game is very different from other types of dominoes by the way to get points.

Each player tries to match his bones having an appropriate amount of points with the bones of the open end of dominoes on the table.

The first step in the match is taken by the player determined by the draw (the player who gets the bone with lowest double, starting from 1:1 but if both players don’t have a bone with double, then the bone with lowest number counts). In the beginning, each player gets 7 bones. The rest of the bones remain in the “Reserve”.

The first double, whether it is a first step or not, becomes the basis of the cross – bones can be set on all four sides. All the following doubles are standard ones. If the player cannot take a step, he takes bones from the “Reserve” until finds the needed bone. The game is over if the needed bone is not found.

If the player is left with only 1 bone – 0:0, it is counted as 25 points.

 

Multi Pair

 

“Multi Pair” is an option in the “Threes” games which allows to take a step with 4 different bones with doubles simultaneously if you would get points after putting those bones.

In the “Threes” type of Domino, after choosing the corresponding pairs, the bones will be accepted only in case if the sum of the bones is divisible by 3.

The player is awarded points every time he makes a step as a result of which the pips value of the open ends of the bones is divisible by 3.

The remaining points of any player are rounded to the nearest number divisible by three.

For example, if the winner’s points are equal to 25, then this number is rounded down to 24, if 28, then rounded up to the nearest number divisible by 3, i.e. 30. These points are summed up and passed to the winner. If all the players are blocked, the lightest hand wins, still earning points based on the pips in opponents' hands.

 

For example,

The bones with 2 on one side and 4 on another on the table, 5-5 in the house (Pic. 5).

The player puts 5-3. He gets 3 points (2 + 4 + 3 = 9; 9 / 3 = 3).

The player who first gets 51, 101, 201, 301 points becomes the final winner of the total game.

BLOCK

 

Game Rules

 

The first step in the match is taken by the player determined by the draw (the player who gets the bone with lowest double, starting from 1:1 but if both players don’t have a bone with double, then the bone with lowest number counts). In the beginning, each player gets 7 bones. The rest of the bones are not used for this game.

Each player tries to match his bones having an appropriate amount of points with the bones of the open end of dominoes on the table. If a player fails to match his bones having an appropriate amount of points with the bones of the open end of dominoes, he misses step.

Each player can play only with one bone during one step. The player who is first free from bones wins the game.

If none of the players can make any step, the game is over and there comes the moment of steps blocking. If the game is over by the “block” each player turns his remaining bones face up and counts the total amount of pips on all of his bones. The player with the lowest such sum wins the match and takes the sum of points equal (1 point for each pip on the bone) to the sum of all pips remaining at the other player of this match.

The player who first gets 51, 101, 201, 301 points becomes the final winner of the total game.

 

 

12․12․3․ POKER (player against player)

 

 

In Poker (player against player), the game organizer does not accept bets on the game but rather charges a commission, rake, for the gaming space provided. The rake is set 5%, which is automatically charged from the pot (wining fund) of bets made by two or more participants playing against each other.

The organizer offers playing the following types of Poker (player against player): Texas Holdem, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, 5 card Omaha, and 6+ Holdem.

The game starts with a mandatory bet; the bets are made by 2 opponents sitting to the left from a conditional dealer, this bet is called “Blind” after which the conditional dealer deals the cards to people sitting from his left to the right. The player sitting to the left from the conditional dealer makes a “Small Blind” bet, the next player makes a “Big Blind” bet. The “Big Blind” is the minimum bet amount, whereas the “Small Blind” is the half of the “Big Blind”. After getting the cards, the player can choose one of the following actions:

 

Check – continue the game taking into account the advantage of the cards. The player does not make bets for the opening of closed cards in the middle of the table but continues to play.

Bet – continue the game taking into account that the closed cards laid in the middle of the table may make a good combination when opened. If the player is the first to make a bet, he makes a bet of the minimum amount established and continues the game.

Fold – the player surrenders immediately, he throws the closed cards and loses the amount placed on the table and the game ends for him.

Call – continue the game taking into account that the closed cards in the middle of the table may form a good combination when opened. The player makes a bet equal to the one made by the previous player and continues the game.

Raise – continue the game taking into account that the closed cards in the middle of the table may form a good combination when opened. The player makes a bet at least twice as big as the one made by the previous player and not more than the established limit and continues the game.

ReRaise – continue the game taking into account that the closed cards in the middle of the table may form a good combination when opened. The player makes a bet bigger than the Raise made by the previous player but not less than twice the amount of the previous Raise and not more than the established limit, and continues the game.

Cap – the last Raise in some of the Poker variations: Fixed limit Texas Holdem, Fixed limit Omaha, and Fixed limit Omaha Hi-Lo.

Fast Fold – surrender immediately. The player throws the cards in a face down position without waiting for his turn to play, he loses the amount placed on the table and the game ends for him. Fast Fold only works in Blitz Poker.

Blitz Poker – is a form of organizing Texas Holdem, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, 5 Card Omaha, 6+ Holdem games. Blitz Poker has Texas Holdem, Omaha, Omaha Hi Lo, 5 Card Omaha, 6+ Holdem rules except for the following:

In Blitz Poker, the player chooses a blind to play with. The player does not sit in front of a particular table, the system automatically connects the player to any table with the same blind.

In Blitz Poker, except Bet, Call, Raise, ReRaise, Fold and Check, the player can also make a Fast Fold.

The player can make a Fast Fold by throws cards before of his/her turn, and join a new table with new players and new cards. The player can also join a new table if he/she make a Fold during his/her turn or wins the game.

 

 

TEXAS HOLDEM 

 

The game is played with a 52-card deck including the ranks from “2” to Ace in each of the four suits: clubs, diamonds, hearts and spades. In each of the suits, the highest card is the Ace (A), the lowest –“2”.

The “Texas Holdem” is based on the combination levels of 5 cards which are played on a special table, all the players against each other.

The game starts from a mandatory bet made by 2 people sitting to the left of the a conditional dealer. This mandatory bet is called “Blind” after which the conditional dealer gives 2 cards to each of the players, moving clockwise from his left. Each player can see only his cards.

The players sitting clockwise from a conditional dealer start the trade: they make bets between the minimum and maximum amounts established by the organizer; every next player cannot make a bet smaller than the one made by the previous player. Afterward, the dealer puts 3 open cards in the middle of the table (round 1), then the players trade and the dealer opens the 4th card (round 2). After the 2nd round, the players start trading and the dealer opens the last 5th card (round 3). At the end of each round the player(s) make one of the following 4 decisions։ 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th. Then, the player makes the best combination of 5 cards out of his 2 closed cards and the opened cards on the table and decides their value. The essence of the game is comparing each player’s cards to the other(s)’ and find the one who has the highest combination to win.

The card combinations below are represented in the ascending order of their values:

 

NN

Cards combination

1.

High Card

2.

One Pair (2 same value cards)

3.

Two Pair

4.

Three of a Kind

5.

Any 5 consecutive cards (Straight)

6.

Any 5 of the same suit (Flush)

7.

1 pair and 3 of a kind (Full House)

8.

Four of a Kind

9.

5 consecutive cards of the same suit (Straight Flush)

10.

5 consecutive cards of the same suit ending up with the Ace (Royal Flush)

 

After evaluating the card combination the player is given a chance to make one of the following decisions:

1. Fold: the player surrenders immediately, he throws the closed cards and loses the amount placed on the table and the game is finished for him.

2. Call: continue the game taking into account that the closed cards in the middle of the table may form a good combination when opened. The player makes a bet equal to the one made by the previous player, or if he is the first to make a bet, makes a bet of the minimum established amount and continues the game.

3. Raise: continue the game taking into account that the closed cards in the middle of the table may form a good combination when opened. The player makes a bet at least twice as big as the one made by the previous player and not more than the established limit and continues the game.

4. Check: continue the game taking into account the advantage of the cards. The player does not make bets for the closed cards in the middle of the table but continues to play.

When all the bets are made, the players open their cards and the card combinations are compared. The player who owns the highest combination wins the bank. If the players card combinations have the same value, then the bank amount is shared equally between the players with highest combination values.

2 to 9 people can participate in the game simultaneously.

If the player has got a wrong number of cards then his combination is annuled, the players get back their bets and the game is restarted.

The organizer gives his players a chance to play 3 types of Texas Holdem depending on the bet limits։

 

Fixed Limit Holdem – in each round, there is a bet amount fixed.

In Fixed Limit Texas Holdem, the bet amount is fixed beforehand. Before the game starts and during the 1st round the bets are made equal to “Big Blind”. During the rounds 2 and 3, all the bet amounts and the “Raise” are doubled. In Fixed Limit Texas Holdem, it is allowed to make only 4 bets in each round. So, it means 1-bet, 2-Raise, 3-reRaise and 4-cap.

 

No Limit Holdem – the player can make any bet including all his chips within the limit of the chips value, specified in the point 7 of this Regulation.

In No Limit Holdem, the minimum bet amount is equal to “Big Blind” but the players can make any bets including also the chips.

Minimum Raise: in the No Limit Texas Holdem, the Raise amount should not be smaller than the previous bet or Raise made in the round. For example, if the first player makes a bet of 5, then the second player can make a Raise not smaller than 5 (so, the total bet makes up 10).

Maximum Raise: the player’s whole bet (all the chips lying on the table that belong to him).

In No Limit Texas Holdem, there are no limitations on the Raise quantity.

 

Pot Limit Holdem – in the game the minimum bet amount is equal to “Big Blind” but the players can bet any amount not exceeding the current pot amount plus double of the last Raise.

Minimum Raise: the Raise amount should not be smaller than the previous bet or Raise made in the round. For example, if the first player makes a bet of 5, then the second player can make a Raise not smaller than 5 (so, the total bet makes up 10).

Maximum Raise: the maximum Raise is equal to the bank amount plus the double of the last Raise. For example, the game is with 10/20 blinds, the first player has made a bet 10 (small blind), the second – 20 (big blind), the third player makes a Raise of 40, after which the fourth player again makes a call of 40. So, the bank makes up 10+20+40+40=110. The maximum Raise of the 5th player can be 110+2x40 (the already developed bank + the double of the bet made by the previous player), so the maximum Raise will be 190 for this player.

In Pot Limit Texas Holdem, there are no limits on the Raise quantity.

In this case, the player who has a highest combination wins, no matter how many bets (raises) he has made. For example, if the first player makes bets (raises) more than the second player, but the second player has a higher combination, then the combinations are compared at the end of the game and the player with a higher combination wins, that is the second player, no matter how many bets (raises) he has made.

 

 

Bad Beat JackPot Accumulative Priz Fund promotion in No Limit Holdem games

 

Bad Beat or “Run Over” – when the obvious leader in the first and/or second rounds of the game, who has the highest possible combination, in the last round loses to the opponent, with a very low combination.

For example,

Player 1 – А♥ А♦, Player 2 – 3♣ 4♣

Round 1: 2♣ A♠ A♣

It is obvious that the Player 1 is the leader with 4 of a Kind combination, and the Player 2 has a Pair of A with common cards.

Round 2: 3♠

The Player 1 still has the best combination of the open cards, and the Player 2 has a combination of Two Pairs (A and threes).

Round 3: 5♣

The situation has changed dramatically. Now the Player 1 has a losing combination, because the Player 2 with the last open card has formed a combination of Straight Flush (from A to five clubs).

 

In Poker (player vs. player) in No Limit Holdem in such a situation, the organizer holds a campaign for players “Cumulative Prize Fund Bad Beat” (Bad Beat Jackpot) (hereinafter Fund).

The Fund shall have an initial amount provided by the Organizer. Each time after the Fund's winning, each next Fund shall start with the initial amount determined and provided by the Organizer.

The prize fund Bad Beat JackPot is formed from the initial amount provided by the organizer and by the amount of bets in No Limit Holdem on the tables agreed in advance by the organizer with the Bad Beat icon. In No Limit Holdem, the organizer charges 6% rake for the tables with Bad Beat icon agreed in advance by the organizer, 1% of which goes to the initial amount of the Fund.

The Fund can be played only in No Limit Holdem in poker games (player vs. player), on tables with Bad Beat icon agreed in advance by the organizer.

The initial amount and the increase of the Fund can be seen in the “Poker” section on the organizer's website.

The Fund is not used in tournaments.

In case of winning the Fund, the amount is automatically charged to the accounts of the Winners by the system. The winning player is informed about the size of ammount  via a message on the screan.

 

CONDITIONS:

 

1. To draw the Fund, the game must be completed: the cards must be opened and the combinations of at least two players must be compared.

2. The minimum situation of Bad Beat for the draw of the Fund is considered to be the loss of a combination 4 of Kind of a higher combination.

3. For the drawing of the Fund and the winning and the losing players have to make combinations of two cards from your “hand”.

4. In case of win, the Fund is distributed as follows:

- 50% of the Fund goes to the winning player – the player who lost in the Bad Beat situation;

- 30% of the Fund goes to the player who won in the Bad Beat situation.

 

If the combinations of two or more players meet the conditions of the Fund draw (parameters), then the player with the lowest combination is considered to have won the Fund (receives 50% of the Fund), and all other players with high combinations equally share 30% of the Fund.

Example

Player 1 – 8♥ 8♦, Player 2 – 9♦ 9♠, Player 3 – 10♣ J♣

Round 1 – 8♠ 8♣ 9♣

Round 2 – 9♥

Round 3 – 7♣

 

The example shows that the Player 1 with a 4 of Kind combination of eight wins the first round. In the second round, the nine of hearts is opened, and at the moment the Player 2 with a 4 of Kind combination of nine wins. The game registers Bad Beat, but the game is not over yet. In the third round opens seven clubs, and the game is won by the Player 3 with a combination of Straight Flush. Again registered Bad Beat. As Bad Beat was played in a game with more than two players, the Player 1 who loses the game is considered to have won the Fund and receives 50% of the Fund. The other two players share equally 30% of the Fund.

- 10% of the Fund is distributed among the other players playing at this table at the time of the played out of the Fund (does not apply to players who are in standby mode (Sit Out)). If there are no players at the table at the time of the Fund played out, these 10% will be added to the initial amount of the next Fund.

- 10% of the Fund is distributed among the players playing at the other tables with the Bad Beat icon at the time of the Fund played out (does not apply to players who are in the standby mode (Sit Out)). If there are no players at other tables with the Bad Beat icon at the time of the Fund played out, these 10% will be added to the initial amount of the next Fund.

The 10% share will be calculated only for one table for the players who play at several tables with the Bad Beat icon at the moment of the played out of the Fund.

If the above conditions are not met and the Fund is not played out, it will be played in the next game, and if the Fund is not played out in this game, it will be played out in the next game, and so on until the conditions of the Fund are met and it will be played out.

 

 

OMAHA

 

The game is played with a 52-card deck including the ranks from “2” to Ace in each of the four suits: clubs, diamonds, hearts and spades. In each of the suits, the highest card is the Ace, the lowest – the “2”.

The game “Omaha” is based on the levels of combination of 5 cards which is played on the special table, all the players against each other.

The game starts from a mandatory bet; the bets are made by 2 players sitting to the left from a conditional dealer after which the dealer deals 4 cards to each of the players starting from his left-hand player moving clockwise. The 4 cards can be seen just by the player.

The players start trading from the one sitting to the left from the conditional dealer and moving clockwise make bets in the amount between the minimum and maximum amounts of the bets set by the organizer, every next player’s bet cannot be smaller than the bet made by the previous player. Afterward, the conditional dealer puts 3 open cards in the middle of the table (round 1) after which the players start the trade and the conditional dealer opens the 4th card (round 2). After the 2nd round the players make a trade and the conditional dealer opens the last, 5th card (round 3). At the end of each round the player(s) make one of the following 4 decisions.

Afterward, the player makes the best 5-card combination out of his own 4 cards and the ones lying on the table, and decides its value: he must use 2 of his closed cards and 3 of the cards on the table. The essence of the game is that the player should compare his cards with the cards of the other(s) and the winner is the player with the most valuable combination. The values of the cards are given below in the ascending order:

 

NN

1.

High Card

2.

One Pair (2 same value cards)

3.

Two Pair

4.

Three of a Kind (Threes)

5.

7.

1 pair and 3 of a kind (Full House)

8.

Four of a Kind

9.

5 consecutives of the same suite (Straight Flush)

10.

5 consecutives of the same suite ending up with the Ace (Royal Flush)

 

After the evaluation of the card combination the player is given a chance to make one of the following decisions:

1. Fold: the player surrenders immediately, he throws the closed cards and loses the amount placed on the table and the game ends for him.

2. Call: continue the game taking into account that the closed cards in the middle of the table may form a good combination when opened. The player makes a bet equal to the one made by the previous player, or if he is the first to make a bet, makes a bet of the minimum established amount and continues the game.

3. Raise: continue the game taking into account that the closed cards in the middle of the table may form a good combination when opened. The player makes a bet at least twice as big as the one made by the previous player and not more than the established limit and continues the game.

4. Check: continue the game taking into account the advantage of the cards. The player does not make bets for the opening of closed cards in the middle of the table but continues to play.

When all the bets are made, the players open their cards and the card combinations are compared. The player who owns the highest combination wins the bank. If the players card combinations have the same value then the bank amount is shared equally between the players with highest combination values.

2 to 9 people can participate in the game simultaneously.

If the player has got a wrong number of cards then his combination is annulated, the players get back their bets and the game is restarted.

The organizer gives his players a chance to play 3 types of Omaha depending on the bet limits։

 

Fixed Limit Omaha – in each round, there is a bet amount fixed.

In Fixed Limit Omaha, the bet amount is fixed beforehand. Before the game starts and during the round one the bets are made equal to the “Big Blind”. During the rounds 2 and 3, all the bet amounts and the “Raise” are doubled. In Fixed Limit Omaha, in each round it is allowed to make only 4 bets. So, it means 1 – bet, 2 – Raise, 3 – ReRaise and 4 – cap.

 

No Limit Omaha: the player can make any bet including all his chips within the limit of the value of the chips, specified in the point 7 of this Regulation.

In No Limit Omaha, the minimum bet amount is equal to the “Big Blind” but the players can make any bets including also the chips.

Minimum Raise: in the No Limit Omaha, the Raise amount should not be smaller than the previous bet or Raise made in the round. For example, if the first player makes a bet of 5, then the second player can make a Raise not smaller than 5 (so, the total bet makes up 10).

Maximum Raise: the player’s whole bet (all the chips lying on the table that belong to him).

In No Limit Omaha, there are no limitations on the Raise quantity.

 

Pot Limit Omaha – the minimum bet amount is equal to the “Big Blind” but the players can make any type of bets which don’t exceed the bank amount and the double of the last Raise.

Minimum Raise: the Raise amount should not be smaller than the previous bet or Raise made in the round. For example, if the first player makes a bet of 5, then the second player can make a Raise not smaller than 5 (so, the total bet makes up 10).

Maximum Raise: the maximum Raise is equal to the bank amount plus the double of the last Raise. For example, the game is with 10/20 blinds, the first player has made a bet 10 (small blind), the second - 20 (big blind), the third player makes a Raise of 40, after which the fourth player again makes a call of 40. So, the bank makes up 10+20+40+40=110. The maximum Raise of the 5th player can be 110+2x40 (the already developed bank + the double of the bet made by the previous player), so the maximum Raise will be 190 for this player.

In Pot Limit Omaha, there are no limits on the Raise quantity.

In this case, the player who has a highest combination wins, no matter how many bets (raises) he has made. For example, if the first player makes bets (raises) more than the second player, but the second player has a higher combination, then the combinations are compared at the end of the game and the player with a higher combination wins, that is the second player, no matter how many bets (raises) he has made.

 

 

OMAHA Hi–Lo

 

The game is played with a 52-card deck including the ranks from “2” to Ace in each of the four suits: clubs, diamonds, hearts and spades. In each of the suits, the highest card is the Ace, the lowest – the “2”.

“Omaha Hi-Lo” game is based on the levels of combination of 5 cards which is played on the special table, all the players against each other.

The game starts from a mandatory bet; the bets are made by 2 players sitting to the left from a conditional dealer after which the dealer shares 4 cards with each of the players starting from his left-hand player clockwise, the 4 cards can be seen just by the player.

The players make the trade from the one sitting to the left from the dealer and moving clockwise make bets in the amount between the minimum and maximum size of the bets established by the organizer, every next player’s bet cannot be smaller than the bet made by the previous player. Afterward, the conditional dealer puts 3 open cards in the middle of the table (round 1) after which the players start the trade and the dealer opens the 4th card (round 2). After the 2nd round the players make a trade and the dealer opens the last, 5th card (round 3).

At the end of each round the player(s) make one of the following 4 decisions. Afterward, the player makes the best 5-card combination out of his own 4 cards and the ones lying on the table, and decides its value: he must use 2 of his closed cards and 3 of the cards on the table. The essence of the game is that the player should compare his cards with the cards of the other(s), the bank is shared between the highest and lowest valued combination owners. If two or more players’ cards highest or lowest combinations have the same value, then the bank amount is shared equally between the biggest and smallest combination owners. This situation is called Quartering.

“Omaha Hi-Lo” is played by the rule “8 or better” which means that to get the low portion of the bank, the “low hand” might consist of 5 cards of different suites, not exceed the card “8” and the combination should not contain pairs. If there is no decisive low valued “hand”, the whole bank is taken by the high valued “hand”.

The low valued “hand” is classified in the descending order.

2 to 9 people can participate in the game simultaneously.

If the player has got a wrong number of cards then his combination is annulated, the players get back their bets and the game is restarted.

The organizer gives the players a chance to play 3 types of “Omaha Hi-Lo” depending on the bet limits։

 

Fixed Limit Omaha Hi-Lo – in each round, a fixed bet size is established (a bet size is fixed).

In Fixed Limit Omaha Hi-Lo, the bet size is also fixed beforehand. Before the game starts and during the round one the bets are made equal to “Big Blind”. During the rounds 2 and 3, all the bet sizes and the “Raise” are doubled. In Fixed Limit Omaha Hi-Lo, in each round it is allowed to make only 4 bets. So, it means 1 – bet, 2 – raise, 3 – reraise and 4 – cap.

 

No Limit Omaha Hi-Lo: the player can make any bet including all his chips within the limit of the value of the chips, specified in the point 7 of this Regulation.

In No Limit Omaha Hi-Lo, the minimum bet size is equal to “Big Blind” but the players can make any bets including all the chips.

Minimum Raise: in the No Limit Omaha Hi-Lo, the Raise size should not be smaller than the previous bet or raise made in the round. For example, if the first player makes a bet of 5, then the second player can make a raise not smaller than 5 (so, the total bet makes up 10).

Maximum Raise: the player’s whole bet (all the chips lying on the table that belong to him).

In No Limit Omaha Hi-Lo, there are no limitations on the raise quantity.

 

Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo: the minimum bet amount is equal to the “Big Blind” but the players can make any type of bets which don’t exceed the bank amount and the double of the last Raise.

Minimum Raise: the raise size should not be smaller than the previous bet or raise made in the round. For example, if the first player makes a bet of 5, then the second player can make a raise not smaller than 5 (so, the total bet makes up 10).

Maximum Raise: the maximum Raise is equal to the bank amount plus the double of the last Raise. For example, the game is with 10/20 blinds, the first player has made a bet 10 (small blind), the second - 20 (big blind), the third player makes a Raise of 40, after which the fourth player again makes a call of 40. So, the bank makes up 10+20+40+40=110. The maximum Raise of the 5th player can be 110+2x40 (the already developed bank + the double of the bet made by the previous player), so the maximum Raise will be 190 for this player.

In Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo, there are no limits on the Raise quantity.

In this case, the player who has a highest combination wins, no matter how many bets (raises) he has made. For example, if the first player makes bets (raises) more than the second and the third players, but the second player has a higher combination and the third player has a lower combination, then the combinations are compared at the end of the game and players with the highest and lowest combinations win, that is, the second and third players, no matter how many bets (raises) they made.

The organizer gives his players a chance to play 3 types of “6+ Holdem” depending on the bet limits։

 

Fixed Limit 6+ Holdem – in each round, a fixed bet size is established (a bet size is fixed). 

In Fixed Limit 6+ Holdem, the bet size is also fixed beforehand. Before the game starts and during the round one the bets are made equal to “Big Blind”. During the rounds 2 and 3, all the bet sizes and the “Raise” are doubled. In Fixed Limit 6+ Holdem, in each round it is allowed to make only 4 bets. So, it means 1 – bet, 2 – raise, 3 – reraise and 4 – cap.  

 

No Limit 6+ Holdem – the player can make any bet including all his chips within the limit of the value of the chips, specified in the point 7 of this Regulation.

In the “No Limit 6+ Holdem”, the minimum bet size is equal to “Big Blind” but the players can make any bets including all the chips. 

Minimum Raise: in the “No Limit 6+ Holdem”, the Raise size should not be smaller than the previous bet or raise made in the round. For example, if the first player makes a bet of 5, then the second player can make a raise not smaller than 5 (so, the total bet makes up 10). 

Maximum Raise: the player’s whole bet (all the chips lying on the table that belong to him).

In the “No Limit 6+ Holdem”, there are no limitations on the raise quantity.

 

Pot Limit 6+ Holdem – the minimum bet amount is equal to the “Big Blind” but the players can make any type of bets which don’t exceed the bank amount and the double of the last Raise.

Minimum Raise: the Raise amount should not be smaller than the previous bet or Raise made in the round. For example, if the first player makes a bet of 5, then the second player can make a Raise not smaller than 5 (so, the total bet makes up 10).

Maximum Raise: the maximum Raise is equal to the bank amount plus the double of the last Raise. For example, the game is with 10/20 blinds, the first player has made a bet 10 (small blind), the second - 20 (big blind), the third player makes a Raise of 40, after which the fourth player again makes a call of 40. So, the bank makes up 10+20+40+40=110. The maximum Raise of the 5th player can be 110+2x40 (the already developed bank + the double of the bet made by the previous player), so the maximum Raise will be 190 for this player.

In Pot Limit 6+ Holdem, there are no limits on the Raise quantity. 

In this case, the player who has a highest combination wins, no matter how many bets (raises) he has made. For example, if the first player makes bets (raises) more than the second player, but the second player has a higher combination, then the combinations are compared at the end of the game and the player with a higher combination wins, that is the second player, no matter how many bets (raises) he has made.

 

 

12.13. BACCARAT

 

 

The game is played with a 8 decks with 52 cards total. The card values are the following:

- “A” cards are the lowest, their value is 1.

- The value of the cards 2-9 is equal to their face value.

- The 10’s, the “Jack”, “Queen” and “King” are equal to 0.

In Baccarat, only the numerical value of cards matters, the suit does not matter at all.

Before each deal of the cards it is necessary to make bets on the Player’s or Banker’s victory or tie in the current round.

The game starts when the dealer deals 2 cards to the Banker and the Player.

If the Player and Banker get hands of the same value, the game round ends in a tie. The “Tie” bet wins and the bets made on the Banker and Player are refunded.

The value of each hand is calculated the following way:

If the cards’ value sum is 1-9, then the hand is calculated according to the corresponding point.

If the cards’ value sum is 10, the hand is calculated 0 point.

If the cards’ value sum is 11 or more, the hand value is calculated extracting 10 points from the cards’ value sum (for example, the value sum of the cards with 7 and 9 values is equal to 6 in the game Baccarat as 16-10=6).

If the Player’s and Banker’s first 2 cards don’t make up an 8 or 9 point combination, each of them can get one more card. The Player always gets the third card first. If the Player’s and Banker’s first 2 cards make up an 8 or 9 point combination, they don’t get more cards.

If the Player’s first 2 cards value sum is 0-5 points, the Player gets the third card.

If the Player’s first 2 cards value sum is 6-7 points, the Banker’s - 3-5, then the Player does not get a third card, and the Banker gets his third card.

If the Player’s hand stops at 6 or 7 points, and the Banker’s hand is 6, then the Banker does not get an additional third card.

In Baccarat, the combination that is closest to 9 in its value wins.

12.17. THE PROCEDURE OF CONDUCTING THE “SLOT” GAME AND THE WINNING OPTIONS

 

 

The player operates the slot machine with a corresponding button. After choosing the bet move and the playing patterns quantity, the cylinders consisting of different images opened on the screen turn around. After the turnaround and stop of the columns, a field is opened on the screen consisting of columns and rows. The image combinations are developed in a linear way: horizontal, vertical, diagonal, as well as their combinations. The winning is set when the combination of lines chosen in the linear field is considered a winning option. The winning amount depends on the bet amount invested, the move size and images combination. In case of having more than one option for winning, the winnings foreseen are added to each other.

This gaming system provides the Player with an opportunity to participate in a game with higher risk with all his winning, half of his winning, double of his winning (the “Credit from bank” is added).

The high risk game takes place in the following way:

1 face up card and 4 face down cards appear on the table. The Player chooses any out of the 4 face down cards and if that card has a higher value than the open card, the winning is doubled, otherwise the winning is multiplied by 0, in case of equal points the winning stays the same. Or the Player is offered to double the winning by guessing the card color or lose the winning. The Player can stop a high risk game at any moment upon his wish and top-up his winning to the total bet’s “Credit to the bank”.

In case of existence of 3, 4 or 5 images in the field (those images are reflected in the “HELP” field), the slot machine program moves to the bonus gaming system: the indicator passes through all the images of the whole table and stops randomly at any of the images and if that image is present among the opened images of the central part of the screen, then the winning is considered accomplished and the amount is multiplied by the odds defined for that image.

12.20. CRASH  THE PROCEDURE OF CONDUCTING THE GAME AND THE WINNING OPTIONS

 

 

To participate in the game Crash, players place bets before the game starts. After, the odds grow by the curve until the Crash occurs (the growth of the odds may stop at any moment and this moment is called Crash), and if the player has clicked on the Cashout button before that, then he/she wins with the appropriate odds, and if the player has not clicked on the Cashout button before the Crash occurs, then he/she loses. The winning is calculated according to the player’s bet amount multiplied by the winning odds.

While playing the game Crash, players can make bets both in “Manual” and “Auto” modes.

 

 

The procedure of placing bets in “Manual” mode

 

In “Manual” mode the bet is placed with the “Place Bet” button. To make a bet, you need to specify the bet amount in the "Bet" field and click on the “Place Bet” button. With the start of the round, the multiplier begins to grow from odds of 1.00, until the Crash occurs. The player needs to click on the Cashout button before the Crash occurs.

In order not to enter the bet amount manually, there is a special section where the player can click on the desired amount available, based on which the bet amount will be specified.

After clicking on the “Place Bet” button, the player waits until the start of the round.

Players can also use the “Auto Cashout” function (to automatically transfer the winnings to the game account if the specified odds were before the Crash). For example, when the odds of 2 are specified in the “Auto Cashout” field, and the game odds rise and exceed the specified odds (i.e. the Crash does not occur before 2), the system automatically withdraws the player from the game with the winning odds of 2. When the player wants to use the “Auto Cashout” function, he/she previously turns on the switch (which activates the “Auto Cashout”) and sets odds in the “Auto Cashout” field, at which he/she wants to automatically make a “Cashout”. This function does not deprive the player of the opportunity to make a “Cashout” independently, i.e. if the player has enabled the “Auto Cashout” and entered preferred odds, then he/she can click on the “Cashout” button independently at any time before the Crash occurs and the growth reaches the specified odds. In this case, the winning is counted according to the Cashout odds made manually and not by the odds mentioned in the “Auto Cashout” field. It is not allowed to change the odds in the “Auto Cashout” field after the start of the round.

 

 

The procedure of placing bets in “Auto” mode

 

Players can play the game “Crash” also in “Auto” mode by switching to “Auto”. By switching to “Auto” mode, the player defines the betting options, based on which the system plays instead of him.

To play in “Auto” mode, the player needs to fill in the fields specified below and click on the “AUTOBET” button.

1. In the "Base Bet" field, the player enters the initial bet amount.

2. In the "Total Bets Limit" field, for insurance, the player needs to enter a maximum bet amount so that the amount of the bets does not exceed that amount based on the results of the game.

3. In the “Auto Cashout” field, the player enters the “Auto Cashout” odds. If the player has not entered anything, then the odds of 1.01 are automatically specified in this field.

4. It is necessary for the player to choose one of the following fields for the next round, depending on the game's outcome (for winning and losing):

4.1. Return to Base Bet.

4.2. Double Current Bet.

For example, if the player has entered 50 in the “Base Bet” field, 500 in the "Total Bets Limit" field, 2 in the “Auto Cashout” field, has chosen “Return to Base Bet” for the next round in case of winning and has chosen “Double Current Bet” for the next round in case of losing․ In this case, participating in the game from the given moment, if in the first round the Crash occurs before the odds of 2 specified in the “Auto Cashout” field, for example 1.52, i.e. the player loses, then in the next round the system doubles the current bet up to 100, as the player has chosen “Double Current Bet” in case of losing. If he/she loses again, the system doubles the current bet again – up to 200, for the next round. If the player wins in the next round, the system takes the “Base Bet”, i.e. 50, to participate in the next round, because the player has chosen “Return to Base Bet” in case of winning. And so on until the amount of all bets exceeds the amount specified in the “Total Bets Limit” field (i.e. if the player lost in the current round instead of winning, the bet must have been doubled again for the next round, and it would become 400 from 200, but the system would turn off the “AUTOBET” as 50+100+200+400=750, which is bigger than the amount specified in the “Total Bets Limit” field – 500).

 

 

The procedure of conducting the game

 

With the start of the round, the multiplier begins to grow from odds of 1.00, until the Crash occurs. If someone does not manage to place a bet in time, then the round starts without the given player, but the player is allowed to place a bet for the next round by clicking on the “Place bet for the next round” button.

Those players who have come out of the game by clicking on the “Cashout” button before the Crash occurs win. The winner multiplies his/her bet amount by the odds of the moment when he/she clicked on the “Cashout” button. After the end of the round (that is when the Crash occurs), the player who has not managed to come out of the round in time (has not managed to click on the “Cashout” button) loses.

If the player is playing with “Auto Cashout”, regardless of whether he/she has an Internet connection or not, after the moment when the system has accepted the player's bet, the “Auto Cashout” function works exactly as the player has set (this happens on the server).

If Internet connection problems have arisen on the player’s side or because of the operator who provides the Internet connection, i.e. not by the organizer’s fault, then the information fixed on the organizer's server is taken as a basis. Players can play with the “Auto Cashout” function during the game “Crash” to avoid the above mentioned problems.

The odds at which the Crash occurs can be both whole and fractional numbers (for example 21.23). They are determined not at the moment of the game, but 10 rounds in advance. After the end of the round, players are given an opportunity to make sure that the Crash odds are set before the round, not at the moment of the game.

 

 

12.21. HI LO - THE PROCEDURE OF CONDUCTING THE GAME AND THE WINNING OPTIONS

 

 

HI LO is an ongoing game which the players have the opportunity to join at any time. The player needs to choose one of the 9 outcomes (options) of the game, enter the bet amount and make a bet. Each outcome has the appropriate odds determined by this Regulation.

During the game, a card is randomly taken out from the deck. Each player is given time to choose one of the 9 outcomes (options) and enter the bet amount.

By clicking on the appropriate button of one of the 9 outcomes (options) with desired odds, then entering the bet amount and clicking on the “Bet” button, the bet will be considered accepted, and the player will need to wait until the start of the game. In order not to enter the bet amount manually, there is a special section where the player can click on the desired bet amount available, and the bet amount will be marked based on it.

The total number of the cards in the deck is 25. They are – 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, J, Q, K, A: one red card and one black card of each, and one Joker. The highest playing card is A, while the lowest card is 2. The Joker is considered to be an independent card, that is: neither high nor low, neither red nor black. In case of predicting the next card correctly, the player wins. The bet is calculated as follows: the player’s bet amount is multiplied by the appropriate odds of the outcome (marked on the button) predicted correctly. The winning will be transferred to the player’s game account. In case the prediction is not correct, the player loses.

 

The 9 outcomes (options) of the game are the following:

1. The next card will be High (HI) compared to the one opened in the previous round

2. The next card will be Low (LO) compared to the one opened in the previous round

3. The next card will be one of 2 to 9 (including) playing cards

4. The next card will be one of J, Q, K, A playing cards

5. The next card will be one of K, A playing cards

6. The next card will be 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, J, Q, K, А

7. The next card will be Joker

8. The next card will be red (in this case, the card value does not matter, only the card color matters)

9. The next card will be black (in this case, the card value does not matter, only the card color matters)

 

The odds for High (HI) and Low (LO) are different (see the table below), depending on the card opened in the previous round:

 

The odds for High (HI)

If the card opened in the previous round is Joker, then in case of High (HI) and Low (LO), the odds are determined compared to the card opened in the preceding round, according to the table above. And if the card opened in that preceding round is also Joker, then the playing card opened in the next preceding round is taken into consideration. This will continue as long as the preceding card is Joker. Once the preceding card is other than Joker, it will be considered for calculation. During the game, the players have an opportunity to see the cards opened in the previous rounds.

If the opened card is A (which is considered to be the highest card), then the outcome (odds) for High (HI) will not be active. And if the opened card is 2 (which is considered to be the lowest card), then the outcome (odds) for Low (LO) will not be active.

The odds for the other outcomes are fixed:

The next card is not determined at the time of the game, but 10 rounds in advance. After the end of the round, the players are given an opportunity to make sure that the next card has been determined before the start and not at the time of the round. When the round is over, the players are provided with a code, which will prove (after entering it in a corresponding program) that the next card is determined in advance, not at the time of the game.

 

 

12.22. DREAM CATCHER – THE PROCEDURE FOR CONDUCTING THE GAME AND THE WINNING OPTIONS

 

 

In the course of the game “DreamCatcher” the dealer rotates a large vertical wheel. The wheel is divided into 54 equal segments separated by pins. 52 segments are marked with a number (1, 2, 5, 10, 20 or 40) with a unique colour for each number.

If the wheel stops at player’s chosen number after the spin, player wins. The other two segments – 2x multiplier and 7x multiplier act as bonus spins and multiply player’s next win.

You just need to make a bet on a number you believe the wheel will stop at: 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 or 40. Then the dealer spins the wheel. When it comes to a stop, the winning segment is indicated by an arrow at the top of the wheel. All bets are paid with the odds matching the number in the winning segment. For example, winning number 5 pays 5 to 1, winning number 10 pays 10 to 1, and so on.  If the wheel stops on a multiplier segment (2x or 7x), then all bets remain in place and new bets won’t be allowed. The wheel is spun again and the outcome of the spin (1, 2, 5, 10, 20 or 40) will determine the winning odds as usual but the odds will be multiplied twice or seven times over, depending on which multiplier the wheel stopped on in the previous spin. If the wheel stops on a multiplier two or more times in a row, then all bets remain in place, and the multipliers stack. The dealer continues to spin the wheel until the spin stops on the following numbers 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 or 40 (for example, the wheel stops on 2x, then on the next spin it stops on 7x, and on the next spin – on number 5. The outcome for the player who originally placed a bet on number 5, is: (5 to 1) x 2 x 7 = (10 to 1) x 7 = 70 to 1).

12.23. FOOTBALL STUDIO – THE PROCEDURE OF CONDUCTING THE GAME AND THE WINNING OPTIONS

 

 

The “Football studio” game objective is to guess who – Home (A) or Away (B) –  will take the higher value card, and therefore win.

The player may also guess whether the cards dealt for Home (A) and Away (B) will be of the same value, by placing a bet on Draw (X).

The aim of the Football studio is to predict which of them – Home (A) or Away (B) – will win or if they will be of the same value – Draw (X).

The cards are dealt from a shoe with eight decks. The player places a bet on either Home (A), Away (B) or Draw (X).

Card value from the lowest to the highest is as follows: 2, being the lowest and followed by 3 and so on, and Ace the highest (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K, A).

A single card face-up is dealt by the dealer to Home (A) and to Away (B). In case the bet of Home (A) or Away (B) the highest card wins and paid in the ratio of 1:1.

If the card dealt are of the same value, half of player’s main bet (Home (A) or Away (B)) is returned,   and in case of a Draw (X) wins and paid in the ratio of 11:1.

12.24. DRAGON TIGER – THE PROCEDURE OF CONDUCTING THE GAME AND THE WINNING OPTIONS

 

 

The game objective is to guess whether the Dragon or Tiger will take the higher value card, and therefore win. Player may also bet as follows: if the cards dealt to the Dragon and the Tiger would be of the same value and therefore a Draw or Suited Draw.

The aim of the Dragon Tiger is to predict which of them – the Dragon or the Tiger – will win or if it will be a Draw of same value or a Draw of same suit.

The cards are dealt from a shoe with 8 decks.

The player places a bet on either the Dragon, or Tiger, or Draw, or Suited Draw (for example, if in the both cells the 8 hearts).

The Dragon and the Tiger are dealt a single face-up card by the dealer. Card value from the lowest to the highest is as follows: Ace with value 1, followed by 2 and so on, and King the highest (A, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K).

If the bet was made on a win, then the highest card wins (according to the list above) and the payout is made in the ratio of 1:1.

13.1. TOURNAMENTS

           

 

13.1.1. TOURNAMENTS OF THE GAMES BELOTE, BACKGAMMON, DOMINO, TOTO 21

           

 

The Organizer arranged tournments for the players of Belote, Backgammon, Domino, Toto 21. To participate in the tournaments, the Player should be registered on the Organizer’s website.

The organizer defines the rules for holding the tournament beforehand: the start, the prize fund, the principle of its development, the minimum and maximum number of players, the Buy-in and Rebuy value, the number of prize places and the prize portions (winnings) assigned for them.

The organization of games Belote, Backgammon, Domino, Toto 21 is made according to the rules corresponding to that games defined in this Regulation.

The Buy-in is the amount paid by the Player to participate in the tournament. The Organizer can also organize Freeroll (without Buy-in) tournaments, as well as Sattelite tournaments for the games Belote, Backgammon, Domino, Toto 21.

The Belote tournaments are organized in Olympic principle: the losing Player stays out of the following rounds of the tournament and the players participate in the additional game round organized to find out the winners of 3rd and 4th places in the Belote, Backgammon, Domino, Toto 21 tournaments.

The Rebuy is the amount paid by the Player to join a tournament that has already begun. At every round of the tournament, different values of Rebuy are defined for the players who stayed out of the tournament and the newly-joining ones.

The players can see the first Rebuy amount, pressing the information button for each tournament. The Rebuy is calculated the following way: Buy-in + % (buy-in made during the previous round and/or Rebuy) – Buy-in made in the previous rounds / Rebuy.

And so on for each round.

For example, if the player has made a buy-in of 400 AMD, then he should pay (400+400)-400 AMD = 400 AMD for the first round Rebuy.

If the player has not made a Buy-in, then he should pay 400+400 (buy-in + buyi-in/rebuy 100%) = 800 AMD for the rebuy. Thus, the calculation is made for each round of the tournament.

The Rebuy amount for each round can be seen in the Rebuy field of the tournament informational window.

For each player, the rebuy amount available will be shown before making a rebuy, and after making the rebuy the amount won’t be shown. After making the rebuy, it will be possible to see the rebuy amount made by the player only in the “Game history” field.

Tournaments with fixed and growing prize fund can be organized by the Organizer. The prize fund of tournaments with fixed prize fund does not depend on the quantity of the players and the buy-ins/rebuys made by them, it is provided by the Organizer. In case of tournaments with growing prize funds, after the buy-ins and rebuys made by the Players exceed the prize fund provided by the Organizer, allocations at a several percentage of the exceeding amount (defined by the Organizer beforehand) are made to the tournament prize fund.

For example, the Tournament prize fund provided by the Organizer is 10,000 AMD, and 10% of the amount exceeding that fund should be allocated to the prize fund. If the Players make Buy-in/Rebuy of 11,000 AMD, then 100 AMD (10% of 1,000 AMD exceeding the prize fund) will be allocated to the prize fund.

The % allocated to the prize fund is presented in the information window of the tournament information.

The tournament starts if the minimum number of players or more (but not more than the maximum number of players defined) are registered for the tournament, otherwise, if the minimum number of players is not registered for the tournament, the tournament is canceled, and the buy-ins made are returned to the Players’ game accounts.

Depending on the number of players in the tournament, the system creates random pairs of players and tables. The tournament rounds are formed depending on the number of players.

 

The need for the formation of an additional round

 

An additional round is formed if the number of players who have moved to the next round after the end of the last round with the availability of rebuy defined for the tournament is not equal to 2n (2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, etc.). If the tournament is with a non-rebuy condition, the need to form an extra round is checked before the start of the pre-determined round before the first prize round (the stage in which the prize amount is distributed).

For example, 77 users have registered for the tournament, 38 pairs, ie 76 participants, take part in the first round. One random participant automatically selected appears in the 2nd round, resulting in 39 participants in the 2nd round. 19 pairs, 38 participants are taking part in this round and again another random user passes to the 3rd round.

There are 19 participants in the 3rd round, and one pending. 20 users make up 10 pairs in the 3rd round. 10 participants pass to the 4th round and 5 participants pass to the 5th prize round. Since 5 is not equal to 2n, an extra round is formed, with 1 pair (2 participants). At the end of the extra round, one participant who joins the pending 3 participants. As a result, 4 participants make up 2 pairs in the 6th round, and the winner is determined in the final 7th round.

 

Before the start of the rounds with rebuy option and without rebuy option (if it is not the round preceding the prize round), in the event of an odd number of players, one random participant stays in the pending status until the end of that round.

 

The procedure of the additional round formation

 

In the event of the need to form an additional round, the system removes the largest preceding 2n degrees number from the number of winning players of the last finished round, from which we receive the number of tables for the extra round.

A random number of players is chosen corresponding to the number of tables created (the number of tables created for that stage times 2), who play an additional round. The winners form 2n number for the round following the additional round together with the pending players and the ones who already have moved to the next round.

For example, in case of 200 players, it is necessary to remove the largest 2n preceding 200, 200-128=72. Thus, the number of additional tables will be 72, and in this case the number of players will be 72x2=144. The 144 players of the additional round compete against each other, while the remaining 56 players (200-144=56) are waiting for the 72 winners of the additional round. The winners and the pending participants form 2n number following the additional round, 56+72=128.

The Organizer may award the players who won the 1st, 1st-2nd, 1st-3rd, 1st-4th, 1st-8th, 1st-16th, 1st-32nd, 1st-64th, 1st-128th, 1st-256th, 1st-512th accordingly. The prize rounds are the final, semi-final, quarter-final, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32, 1/64, 1/128, 1/256, 1/512 rounds.

There are different portions (winnings) of the tournament’s prize fund defined (before the start of the tournament) for the players who occupied places in the prize round. As a result, the prize fund is shared among the players who took the prize places.

For example, the following distribution of prize fund is set for the tournament: 1 – 30%, 2 – 20%, 3-4 – 25%, 5-8 – 25%. This means that the first place winner will get 30% of the tournament prize fund, the second-place participant - 20%, third and fourth places together – 25% (each will receive 25% / 2 = 12.5% ​​of the prize fund), and 4 participants from 5th to 8th places will receive 25% of the prize fund together (6.25% of prize fund for each).

The percentage of the tournament prize fund allocation may vary depending on the type of tournament and the size of the prize fund.

A player make a rebuy if the number of his chips is less than the initial number of chips in the tournament. The player can make rebuy or re-rebuy.

In case of loss in the tournament, the player can make a rebuy to re-join the tournament. In some tournaments determined by the Organizer the player can make a re-rebuy: pay the amount of re-rebuy and get double chips. The player has the opportunity to rebuy after the start of the tournament in those rounds that have been previously determined by the organizer.

Example 1. If a player starts the tournament with 5,000 chips, then in case of having 4,500 chips he make rebuy, the player will increase the number of his chips to the initial number of chips – 5,000. If the player makes a re-rebuy, the number of chips doubles and is 10,000.

Each round of the tournament players start with an equal number of chips and the same blinds. In each round, one player moves from one table to the next round.

Depending on the number of participants in the tournament, tables and groups of players are randomly created by the system (two, three, four or six people).  Rounds of the tournament are formed depending on the number of players. ShootOut tournaments are held without the possibility of rebuy, re-entry and add-on.

For example, the buy-in of the ShootOut tournament is 1,100 AMD, 2 players play at the table, the initial number of chips is 3,000, 128 players participate in the tournament.

The first round is considered to be completed when one player who has won the chips of the second player remains at each table. At the end of the first round 128/2 = 64 players go to the second round. The second round begins with the number of chips of the first round, each player again receives the initial 3,000 chips. After the end of this round, the number of players is halved (64/2 = 32), and so on until there is one player left in the tournament who will be the winner.

If the number of players registered by the start of the tournament is not equal to the number of players at the table raisied to the “n” power, then an “Additional Round” is formed.

For example, there are 3 players at the table, 15 players are registered in the tournament. 9 three-seat table is created (9 is such a power of 3 that meets the conditions for all players to sit around the table). There are 3 players at 3 tables and one player at the other 6 tables ((3 x 3) + (6 x 1) = 15). The tables with 3 players start playing in the first round until the winner of each table is determined. Six tables, at which one player sits, are in standby mode. When at all nine tables is left only one player, they form randomly new triples and sit at three tables to play in the second round.

Sit&Go tournaments

 

Sit&Go – a type of tournament that does not have a pre-set start time. The Sit&Go tournament starts when the required number of players participate in the tournament.

If in any of the following hands the Third player wins the First, half of the Knockout Prize of the First player (375 drams) will be transferred to the game account of the Third player, and the second half of the Knockout Prize will be added to the Knockout Prize of the Third player and will amount to 875 drams. And so on until there is no one player left in the tournament.

 

 

ShootOut (Sit&Go)

 

Two, three, four or six players can play at the same table in a tournament. ShootOut tournaments are held according to the Olympic principle.

Each round of the tournament players start with an equal number of chips and the same blinds. In each round, one player goes from one table to the next round.

Depending on the number of participants in the tournament, the system randomly creates groups of players (two, three, four or six people) and creates tables. Rounds of the tournament are formed depending on the number of players.

For example, the buy-in of the ShootOut tournament is 1,100 AMD, 4 players play at the table, the initial number of chips is 3,000, 1024 players participate in the tournament.

The first round is considered to be completed when there is one player at each table who has won the chips of the other players. After the first round, 1024/4 = 256 players passes to the second round. The second round begins with the number of chips of the first round, each player again receives the initial 3,000 chips. After the end of this round, the number of players decreases by four times (256/4 = 64), and so on until there is one player left in the tournament who will be the winner.

 

 

Winner Takes All (Sit&Go)

 

There is only one prize place in this type of tournament. The winner takes the entire prize fund.

For example, the buy-in of the “Winner Takes All” tournament is 1,100 AMD, the prize fund is 180,000 AMD, the share of the prize fund for the first place is 100%, number of participants 180. The tournament ends when there is only one player left in the tournament who wins all the players’ chips.

 

 

Double Or Nothing (Sit&Go)

 

“Double Or Nothing” tournaments end when half of the participants lose. The other half of the players divide the prize fund into equal parts, that is, each player will be paid a double amount of the entrance fee.

For example, the buy-in of the “Double Or Nothing” tournament is 1,100 AMD (1,000 AMD entrance fee + 100 AMD organizer’s rake), the number of players is 10. The tournament ends when 5 players lose. The remaining 5 players are credited with double entrance fee (1,000 x 2 = 2,000 AMD), regardless of the place they occupy in the tournament table at this moment.

The organizer’s rake is 10 x 100 = 1,000 AMD.

 

 

Fifty 50 (Sit&Go)

 

Fifty 50 tournaments end when half of the players lose. The other half of the players divide the prize fund depending on the number of chips they have. Each player will receive a prize equal to the amount of the entrance fee plus part of the prize fund, calculated according to the following formula:

 

Win = entrance fee + ((number of player chips/total number of chips) x (0.5 x Prize Fund))

 

For example, the buy-in of Fifty50 tournament is 1,100 AMD (1,000 AMD entrance fee + 100 AMD of organizer’s rake), the number of participants is 10, the number of chips is 1500. The tournament ends when 5 players lose. The winning 5 players, depending on their chips, are credited with the corresponding part of the prize fund.

Entrance fee 1,000 AMD.

The number of participants is 10.

Prize fund 10,000 AMD.

 

A) At the end of the tournament, the number of player’s chips:

Player 1 = 3,300 chips

Player 2 = 2,800 chips

Player 3 = 6,400 chips

Player 4 = 1,600 chips

Player 5 = 900 chips

 

B) Payments by chips:

Player 1 = 1.000 + ((3,300 / 15,000) x (0.5 x 10,000)) = 2,100 AMD

Player 2 = 1.000 + ((2,800 / 15,000) x (0.5 x 10,000)) = 1,933,33 AMD

Player 3 = 1.000 + ((6,400 / 15,000) x (0.5 x 10,000)) = 3,133,34 AMD

Player 4 = 1.000 + ((1,600 / 15,000) x (0.5 x 10,000)) = 1,533,33 AMD

Player 5 = 1.000 + ((900 / 15,000) x (0.5 x 10,000)) = 1,300 AMD

 

 

SPIN tournaments

 

A Spin is a type of tournament in which there is no pre-set start time. Spin starts when 3 players join the tournament. This type of tournament gives the opportunity to win an amount determined by a random principle. The amount of winnings is formed by the players’ buy-ins and the amount provided by the organizer, and is equal to the product of the player’s buy-in and a random multiplier. Random multipliers are: x2, x3, x4, x5, x6, x10, x50, x100, x500, x1000, x2000. If the product of the buy-in and multiplier exceeds the product of the players’ buy-ins and their number, the remaining amount is provided by the organizer.

For example, at the beginning of the game, the screen displays the played win amount, which is a product of a random multiplier and buy-in. If the buy-in of the tournament is 1,000 AMD and the random multiplier is x50, the winner of the tournament will win 50,000 AMD (1,000 x 50), 3,000 AMD of which is the player’s buy-ins and 47,000 AMD is provided by the organizer.

Starting from the first round in all Spin tournaments players must place an Ante bet.
