How to Play

Playing Casino games is easy – you can have as much fun as anyone.


Three Card Poker


Three card poker is based on the traditional Poker game where you play your hand against the house. The aim of the game is for your Poker hand to beat the Dealer's hand. 

​Texas Hold'em Poker ​ ​

Texas Hold'em Poker

​The aim of the game is to have the highest ranked hand from a combination of the player's two cards and five community cards. A player can win by either obtaining the highest ranked hand or by bluffing the other players into thinking they have a lower ranked hand and thereby folding (withdrawing from that round of play). 

​ ​ Roulette​


​The Roulette wheel is made up of 37 segments, numbered from zero to 36. The Roulette table - which seats up to six players - is attended by a "dealer" who spins the wheel in one direction, and a small white ball in the other. The aim of the game is to guess in which numbered segment the ball will come to rest.


​Touchbet Roulette ​ ​

​A camera positioned above the roulette wheel transmits the live action into your terminal. When the ball drops into the wheel, two sensor-heads detect the winning number, which is then transmitted to your terminal. The screen layout is cleared automatically and any winnings are displayed in the 'win' box prior to being added directly to your existing credits.

Blackjack​ ​ ​


​The aim of the game of Blackjack is to draw cards totalling closer to 21 than those in the dealer's hand without exceeding 21. "Picture" cards (Jack, Queen, King) each count as 10. An Ace can count as 1 or 11. All number cards have their face value.


Mini Baccarat​ ​ ​

Mini Baccarat

​There are only two hands in Mini Baccarat the Banker's and the Player's. There are no individual hands for players. These "community hands" are the focus for all players. You are therefore not playing against the other players or the House, you are simply betting against the cards. In Mini Baccarat, the highest count possible is nine. Tens, picture cards and multiples of ten are counted as zero. Aces are counted as one. All cards from two to nine are counted at face value. The aim of the game is to bet on the hand that you believe will total closest to nine.

​Caribbean Stud Poker ​ ​

Carribean Stud Poker

​Caribbean Stud Poker is based on the traditional Five Card Stud Poker game, where you pit your hand against the House. The aim of the game is for your poker hand to beat the dealer's hand. If you draw one of the top five Caribbean Stud hands, you will also be in the running for an additional Jackpot bonus - all you have to do is place an extra wager on the Jackpot option.


Jupiters Pontoon​ ​ ​

The aim of the game of Pontoon is to draw cards totaling closer to 21 than those in the Dealer's hand - without exceeding that magic number. Jupiters Pontoon is similar to Blackjack but with some twists.  For instance, if you receive Pontoon you will get paid immediately rather than waiting to see if the Dealer also has it, and if the Dealer receives an ace or a picture card then the Dealer will offer you the option to surrender half your bet - however if the Dealer gets Pontoon the surrender is void and you lose the entire wager. Also the tens (not picture cards) are removed from the deck prior to play. All other cards have their face value. ​ ​ ​


Jupiters Wheel​ ​ ​

The aim of playing Jupiters Wheel is simply to guess on which symbol or number the Wheel will come to rest. The Wheel is divided into 52 segments. These are comprised of seven different symbols, depicting Australian states and territories, of varying odds. With the potential to pay big money on every spin, the Wheel is an exciting way to win. The "WA" and "TAS" symbols, for instance, pay odds of 47 to 1.​
