AN OVERVIEW OF THE TABLE GAMES ON VIPCOIN CASINO – Part II

Feb 25, 2020

Continuing our last post on table games, today we would like to talk about the non-live games that we offer on VipCoinCasino.com and go into more details about the rules of the games.

The non-live table games which we have are provided by BetSoft Gaming – an experienced and respected software provider.

If you like table games in the casino, you like sticking to the classics. You would not expect lots of new names out there and there are no major surprises in the list below.

BlackJack

Blackjack, probably the most popular table game, takes some skill to master. In order to maximize your chances, it’s good to understand the differences between the two types we offer – American and European.

Both versions featured on the site have the same basics – 6 decks of cards are used, the goal of the player is to draw cards until his hand adds up to 21, or comes as close as possible without exceeding it.

If the total value of your cards is closer to 21 than the dealer’s, you win and your payout is double your wager. If your first two cards total 21, you have Blackjack and you win 3 to 2 times your bet (unless the dealer also has Blackjack). If your hand exceeds 21, you bust and lose your wager. If you have same total as the dealer, it’s called a push and you get your wager back. BlackJack beats a score of 21.

The standard “Las Vegas Strip” rules are used with some exceptions for both variations of the game:

  • The deck is shuffled after each round.
  • The player can split only once.
  • The player may double after splitting.
  • Player can split to two hands.
  • No late surrender.

Exceptions from Las Vegas Strip rules in American Blackjack:

  • Player can double on 10 and 11 only.
  • The dealer checks for Blackjack if his open card is a 10 or an Ace.

 

Also, in American Blackjack the dealer has to draw cards until he has 17 at least. In case of a soft 17 the dealer has to hit (take another card). A soft 17 for the dealer is when he has an Ace which counts as 11.

 

Exceptions from Las Vegas Strip rules in European Blackjack:

  • Player can double on 9, 10 and 11 only.
  • The dealer only draws 1 card at the start of a hand, and does not draw any more cards until after the player has finished all of their hands.

In addition to that, in European Blackjack the dealer must draw cards until at least 17. If he gets 16, he has to take a card again. But if the dealer is on 17, even a soft one, he stands.

In both American and European Blackjack, you have to consider Insurance.

Insurance is a game of its own within Blackjack. It gives you the opportunity to protect yourself in case you believe the dealer might have Blackjack. When the dealer’s first card is an Ace, there is a good chance he might get a Blackjack. So if you believe that is the case, you may buy insurance at the price of your initial bet. If the dealer does have a Blackjack, your insurance pays 2 to 1, corresponding to your initial bet’s amount. If you bought the insurance but the dealer does not get Blackjack, you lose your insurance and the bet settled after comparing your cards with those of the dealer.

Roulette

Roulette is another classic and we offer both American and European. Although the game itself is pretty simple and straightforward even for a beginner, there is a variety of bets one can experiment with.

What has to be considered is the different payouts for different types of bets. Below is the table showing the payout for every bet. The payouts are valid for both American and European roulette.

American Roulette

In American roulette there are 38 sectors on the wheel – numbers from 1 to 36 plus 0 and 00.

European Roulette

European roulette wheel has 37 sectors – the difference from American is there is no 00 sector.

Baccarat

Baccarat is a very popular game across top casinos around the world. The rules may seem elaborate but it is in fact very easy to play.

The goal in Baccarat is to predict whose hand will be closer to 9 – the hand of the dealer or that of the player. In order to participate you can place a wager on the banker’s hand, the player’s had or on a tie. The player and the banker are dealt to cards each. A third card is dealt to the player and/or the banker.

Winning wagers on the player or the banker pay 1 to 1 but if you win by betting on the banker, the bank receives 5% commission. Wagers on a tie pay 8 to 1.

The cards value is as follows – an Ace is 1 point, face cards and 10s are 0, all the rest carry the value stated on the card. In case a hand value exceeds 10 points, then subtract 10 and you get the value of the hand. For example two 8s count as 6.

Below you can see a chart with detailed rules for banker and player actions in Baccarat.

Poker

In the table games section on VipCoinCasino.com we offer a casino fixed limit version of heads up Texas Holdem poker. In a heads up game you have only one opponent.

Like in regular Holdem both players are dealt two cards after paying a blind bet, with a betting round after that. The player’s options are to call the fixed bet amount or fold. Then three cards are dealt face up on the board (the flop). A betting round follows. Then another card is dealt on the board (the turn) with a betting round after it. At this stage the bets are doubled so it’s more costly to call. The last card dealt on the board is called the river. Then after another betting round, follows the showdown. Hands ranking is standard for poker. If the player or his opponent decide to fold, they automatically lose all bets made prior to that in the hand.
