Roulette is an exciting game of chance based on the spin
of the wheel where large payouts are possible on small
wagers. The aim is to place your chips on a number,
combination of numbers or colour that comes up on the
At the roulette table, the dealer will exchange your
money or cash chips for colour chips. These are your chips
and no one else can play with them. Maximum and minimum
stakes are displayed at every table. When you decide to
leave the table, the dealer will change your colour chips
back into cash chips.
Due to the layout of the table and the pattern of
numbers on the wheel there is a huge variety of bets that
you can place on Roulette.
Details of betting and odds
You can bet on any number, including 0, by placing the
chip in the centre square of a number.
You can bet on two numbers by placing a chip on the
line that divides the two numbers.
To bet on a row of three numbers (a street), place a
chip on the boundary line of the roulette table, at the
end of the corresponding row.
You can bet on four numbers by placing chips at the
corner where the four numbers meet.
You can bet on the numbers 0, 1, 2, and 3 by placing
your chip on the boundary line, where the line between 0
and the first row intersects it.
You can bet on two street bets (i.e., the six different
numbers in two rows of three numbers), by placing your
chip on the boundary line of the roulette table where the
line dividing the two rows intersects it.
There are three boxes labelled "2 to 1" at
the bottom of each column of numbers. You can place bets

Three Card Poker
The popular casino game based on Brag. Three Card Poker
offers two different games, three ways to play and four
ways to win.
The objective of the basic 'Ante and Play' game is to
have a higher hand than the Dealer's hand.
Each Player has two rectangular boxes and a circle on
the layout in front of them. These are marked 'Play',
'Ante' and 'Pair Plus'. Before you are dealt a hand, you
must place a stake that you want to bet in the rectangle,
The Dealer then deals three cards to each player, and
three cards to themselves.
You have two choices:
- 1. If you think your hand is a winning hand and you
fancy your chances, you can 'Play'. You must lay your
cards face down in the 'Play' box and place an
additional wager equivalent to your initial stake on
top of your cards. If your first bet was £10, the
Play is also £10.
- 2. If you feel your hand is likely to be a loser,
you can surrender your initial stake right away, by
pushing your cards towards the Dealer.
When all the players have decided whether to 'play' or
fold, the Dealer will turn their three cards over. The
rule of Three Card Poker is that the Dealer must have a
Queen high or better to qualify.
If the Dealer's hand does not qualify, then you will
How 'Pair Plus' works
The objective of the 'Pair Plus' Game is to have a pair
or higher irrespective of the Dealer's hand. All that
matters is the value of your own hand.
The 'Pair Plus' bet is an optional or additional bet;
you do not have to have an ante bet to play. This bet does
not rely on the Dealer's hand but rather is a side bet.
Whatever the Dealer's hand is, regardless if their hand is
better than yours, you still get paid out on this bet.
Naturally, you have to have at least a pair or better to
be paid out.
If the Dealer's hand qualifies, they then turn over the
players' hands over, one by one. If your hand beats the
Dealer's hand you win. If the Dealers' hand bet as your
hand, you lose.
However, if you have a straight or better you are paid
out on the 'ante' as a bonus, win or lose this is an extra
pay out to you.
Ties are a stand off, but note that all three cards
You can play only one hand at a time at Three Card
Poker and no conferring is allowed between players.
Super Stud Poker
This famous five-card game is all about trying to work out
what kind of hand the dealer has - and whether your hand
can beat his. Remember: know when to hold 'em - know when
to fold 'em!
To add an extra thrill, Grosvenor Casinos offer you the
option of placing a Super Stud bet, which is a side-bet of
£1 giving you the chance to win a huge jackpot linked to
all our casinos in the UK.
In this version of Poker, you play against the dealer,
not against other players - and you start by putting your
bet (the 'ante') in the ante circle. Everyone, including
the dealer, is dealt five cards, face down - apart from
the dealer, whose last card is dealt face up to give you
an idea of how good his hand might be.
If you don't think your hand is as good as the
dealer's, you can 'fold' and lose your bet. On the other
hand, if you think your hand might beat the dealer's you
can raise the bet by putting your cards face down on the
table (in the 'raise box') and put twice your initial bet
on top of the cards.
When all the players have placed their bets, the dealer
reveals their cards. If there is no Ace, King or better in
the hand, the dealer loses and pays even money to all
hands still in play.
If the dealer has an Ace, King or better, they turn
over all hands in play. If the dealer's hand is better
than yours, you lose all bets. If yours is a 'tied hand',
you keep your bet. If your hand is better than the
dealer's they'll pay you evens on your ante bet.

Online Slots Players
online slots will post the ‘payout table’ alongside
the actual playing screen, whilst others will require the
player to click a certain tab that will probably say
‘Payout Table’, in order to reveal it. Since clicking
tabs whilst trying to concentrate on the slots can be
frustrating and confusing, it’s beneficial to make a
copy of the payout table onto a piece of paper, so that
you can consult it whenever you want, without having to
navigate away from the main playing page. In most cases,
online casino interfaces will inform slot players when
they have any winnings (this is usually done by
highlighting the exact combination, or running a line
through the matching symbols), however, it is just
recommended that players make a copy of all winning
combinations, just for good measure. This is particularly
important when playing multi-spin slots, which gives
players the chance of an initial free spin, with the
option to put certain symbols on hold for the ‘final’
spin. If a player hits a "Wild card" symbol on
the free spin, it would be highly advisable to put it on
Hold, and therefore by knowing the payout table in your
head, you’ll immediately know which symbols and what
combinations should be put on Hold for a multi-spin slot
machine. Visit onlinecasino.org.uk
for more information.
it’s recommended that new players to online slots take
advantage of the ‘free play’ function that most
casinos offer. This enables gamblers to play the slots
without having to gamble any money, and there’s no limit
on how long players can use free play for, so a good way
to memorise the payout table - as well as gaining
experience at the slots - would be to use this practice
