Roulette (Number wheel)
Roulette is a number wheel game where players try to predict the outcome of each trial.
A number wheel is spun in one direction, while a small ivory ball is sent rolling in the opposite direction.
Once the ball slows down, it will end up in one of 38 pockets.Slide4
The Roulette wheel has 38 pockets with the numbers 1-36, plus 0 and 00.
Not in numerical order
The numbers 1-36 have either a red(18) or black(18) background
0 and 00 have a green backgroundSlide5
The table is where players place their bets by putting chips down on the number or spot that they predict will win
There are numerous bets to choose from in RouletteSlide6
What is the probability of 00 coming up?
Meaning: in 38 spins it is expected that 00 would come up 1 time
Number of times casino pays out
for this number of turnsSlide7
Betting $1 on 00
Winning pays out 35 to 1 (35x bet)
So….38 bets of $1 should win $35 plus $1 bet
Casino gains $2Slide8
Casino pays out
38 x $1 = $38
1 x 35 x $1 = $35
Casino returns bet
Cost to Player = number of bets x bet amount
Player wins = odds x bet
Player gets winning bet returned
Player gets $36, but it costs $38Slide9
Roulette tables also have a screen showing the outcome of the last 10-15 spins
Allows superstitious players to pick number that haven’t come up in a while
Craps is a dice game where players try to predict the outcome of a roll of diceSlide12
There are lots of bets possible, both single roll and multiple roll bets.Slide13
Players bet on (Pass Line) or against (Don’t Pass) the come-out roll.
Pass Line wins with a roll of either 7 or 11, and loses (crapping out) with 2, 3, or 12
If a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 come up, then that becomes the “point”.Slide14
If a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 come up, then that becomes the “point”.
If the point is then rolled again before a 7, the Pass Line bet wins
If a 7 is rolled before the point, the Pass Line bet losesSlide15
Single Roll bets
Players can make many different bets on a single roll of the dice
Keno is a number game where players try to predict numbers drawn at random
Similar to the lottery
20 numbers are drawn from the numbers 1-80Slide18
Players can choose from 2 to 10 numbers.
The number the player gets right, called a “catch”, compared to the number selected, determines the payout.
Payouts vary by casino
If a player chooses 2 numbers and get both correct they could win 14x their betIf a player chooses 4 numbers and get all correct they could win 100x their betSlide19
Players choose 5 numbers between 1-69, then choose a 6
number from 1-26Slide20Slide21
Baccarat is a card game where players try to predict which of 2 hands (either the “player” or banker) will have a better score.Slide22
In Baccarat, Aces count as 1, and 10’s and face cards count as 0.
The player and banker hand are each dealt 2 cards.
If either the player or banker hands add up to 8 or 9, the game is over
Otherwise they draw a card according to specific drawing rulesSlide23
When adding the card
values together, the first digit of a 2-digit number is always dropped
For Example:If a hand is a 6 and a 7, the sum of the hand is 13, but the 1 is dropped, leaving a score of 3Slide24
If either the player or banker hands add up to 8 or 9, the game is over.
Higher score wins.
If the player hand adds to 6 or 7 the player stays (doesn’t draw).
If the player hand adds to 5 or less, then the player draws a card.
The banker hand draws a card based on the banker hand score and what the player’s third card was.Slide25Slide26
