Games in Corona Casino Phu Quoc, Vietnam?

Baccarat Scratch Cards

Baccarat Scratch Cards (also known as Chemin De Fer or Punto Banco) originated from France. Its inventor was named Chemin De Fer – a person with US nationality. However, the difference with the present is that then two players bet against each other rather than the player against the banker.

Currently, Baccarat is a popular card game and very popular in Casinos around the world because the game’s winning rate is quite high (50–50) and the rule is very simple. The rules of Baccarat has many similarities with the game of scratch cards in Vietnam.

In a Baccarat card game, either the Player’s hand or the Banker’s hand wins when the total points of cards dealt to each hand reach a higher score and the highest score is 9 points. The dealing rules (Tableau) will not be changed and no decision from the Player is required.

bai-cao-baccarat
Playing Baccarat

Game rules instructions:

The way to play Baccarat is quite simple. After dealing, the player with the closest score to 9 will win. In which, the cards are counted as follows:

  • An ace (A) is worth one point
  • Piece 2 – 9 is counted according to the dial value
  • Piece 10, Jack, King and Queen is worth 0 point.

If the total number of cards is greater than 10, the baccarat of that deck will be the total minus 10. For example: 6 + 10 + 9 = 5 points.

There will be 3 hands on the table to bet:

  • Banker: If the banker wager wins, you will be paid double minus 5% commission for the banker.
  • Player: If you bet the player wins, you will be paid twice as much for the bet.
  • Tie: The banker and the player have equal points. If you win, you get paid at odds of 9 to 1.

The first 2 cards will be dealt to each of Banker and Player by the dealer. Depending on the total number of points on each side and the dealing rules (Tableau), the dealer will deal the third card to the Player or the Banker or both sides or not.

In addition to the main bets of Player’s and Banker’s hand, it can be placed a bet on Tie, Pairs Player, Pairs Banker and Super Six (tax is not included in banker’s hand and payout odds of 11 to 1).

Bets must be placed before the dealer indicates No More Bets and starts the round.

Scratch cards is not taxed: Winning bets on the Player’s and the Banker’s hands will be paid equal to the bet amount. But in the event that the Banker wins with 6 points, the winning bet will be paid for only half of the bet.

Additional bets:

  • Tie Bet will win when the round result is a tie (The Total scores of the Player and the Banker are equal) and will be paid 8 times the bet amount.
  • Bet on Pairs Player or Pairs Banker will win when the first 2 cards are the same cards (Same suits are not required) and will be paid 11 times the bet amount.

 

Casino game of Blackjack

Blackjack is also known as twenty-one or poker because it is like poker in Vietnam. If there is a difference, it is only a small difference, not much. So, people just need to know how to play Blackjack to fully participate in playing twenty-one.

Thanks to its simple rules and high winning rate, Blackjack is an attractive card game that attracts the most players today in Macau, Las Vegas casinos.

In terms of origin, Blacjack originated from France, popular in casinos and gambling houses with the name Vingt-et-un and at that time there was no rule of 3 to 2 for blackjack cards. Over time, people found it necessary to raise money for those who were lucky enough to get blackjack. So the 3:2 rule for blackjack holders was born. In Vietnamese, it is called “Xì Dách”

The objective of the game is to beat the Banker by drawing decisions to get a total score close to 21, avoiding exceeding 21 to survive in the round. A hand where the first 2 cards contain an Ace and a card with value 10 is BlackJack, but if there are 2 above cards after splitting, it will only count as 21 points.

Game rules instructions:

Bets must be placed before the dealer indicates No More Bets and starts to deal: 2 cards to Player and 1 card to Banker.

Depending on the card value, the Player has the following options:

  • Hit: When the score is not large enough to win the Banker. There is no limit to the number of cards added until the desired score is reached, but bets will lose when the score exceeds 21.
  • Stand: Do not draw any more cards when the point is big enough and the dealer will continue to hand the next bet.
  • Double down: It is possible to double the bet on the first 2 cards by placing an additional stake equal to the original bet, and then each hand will have the same options as above. Maximum 4 hands can be split from 1 original hand, but splitting for double Ace is accepted once only.
  • Insurance: The Player is made insurance when the Banker’s first card is an Ace and the premium is doubled when the Banker has Blackjack. The maximum premium will be half of the bet.

Payoff table

At the end of the First Deal and before drawing for the Next Round, if the player has Blackjack and the first cards of Banker do not contain 10 or Ace card then player will immediately be paid for that bet at odds of 3 to 2.

 Roulette

Roulette Wheel (also known as Roulette) is a gambling game in Casino. In French, it means “little wheel”. In the game there is a small ball spinning on a wheel with 37 pockets containing numbers 0 – 36 in groups of 18 black, 18 red pockets arranged alternately on the wheel ring. Zero is a green number and can be bet like any other number.

To determine the winning number and color, a player drives the trigger to spin the wheel in one direction, then spin the small ball in the opposite direction around the inclined circle that runs around the outer edge of the wheel. When the ball loses its momentum, it falls on the wheel and stops at 1 of 37 numbers (number 0 – French/European single roulette) or 38 numbers (number 00 and 00 – American Roulette).

Poker is a raising game where the Player’s winning and losing outcome is based on the comparison of his hand and the Banker’s hand. The values of high to low cards in this game are as follows: Ace, K, Q, J, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2.

xi-to-3-la-poker
Poker is a card game in which one part (Texas Hold’em) or all of the cards (Draw) are not shown and the player can raise the pot.

Values of hands:

Name Meaning Image Example Conditions for determining the value
High card There is no link below A♠ Consider the highest card, then consider the next highest card
One pair Two cards of the same rank 9♣ 9♥ Consider the high and low pairs first, then consider the highest odd cards
Two pairs Two pairs Q♦ Q♠ 7♣ 7♠ Consider the highest pair, then the low pair and finally the odd cards
Three of a kind Three cards of the same rank A♣ A♥ A♠ Consider the value of the trio
Straight Five cards in sequence (not all of the same suit) 8♠ 9♦ 10♥ J♣ Q♥ Consider the value of the highest card of the 5-card sequence
Flush Five cards, all of the same suit (not all in sequence) 7♥ Q♥ 10♥ K♥ A♥ Consider the highest card, then the next highest card
Full House Three cards of one rank and two cards of another rank J♣ J♠ J♦ 9♥ 9♣ Consider the value of the trio then the value of the pair
Four of a Kind Four cards of the same rank 8♥ 8♦ 8♠ 8♣ Consider the value of the quadruplet card
Straight Flush Five cards of the same suit in sequence, 7♣ 8♣ 9♣ 10♣ J♣ Consider the highest card
Royal Straight Flush Five cards of the same suit in sequence, with Ace is the highest card A♥ K♥ Q♥ J♥ 10♥ Spit the pot (Pot: the sum of money that players wager during a single hand or game, according to the betting rules of the variant being played.)

 

In particular, the Ace (A) card can be counted as the highest card of the straight behind King (K) or counted as the smallest card of the straight before “1”; the 5-4-3-2-A link is a straight, just like a straight. Number series like 4-3-2-A-K or 3-2-A-K-Q are not counted like that. So, a straight must have either a “5” card or a “10” card.

The color or suit (hearts, diamonds, spades, cloves) of a card does not make sense. If all players have the same hand but of different suits, they will split pot together.

At the start of the game, each player is dealt two cards. The round is clockwise.

 The way to play and the rules of Poker in Vietnam:

  • In Vietnamese Poker, the number of players is from 2 to 6 people.
  • The playing cards is used in poker but removes cards from 2 to 6. The total number of cards played in the table is 32 cards (only playing cards from 7 to Ace: of which 7 is the lowest card, Ace is the biggest card)
  • The suits of cards (hearts, diamonds, spades, and cloves) don’t make any sense, just the value of the cards is considered.
  • Initially when being handed 2 cards, a player must open 1 card (the other is faced down) for the opponent to see, then hand each person with 1 open card from the pile of other cards, the player can start raising, first person will be the one with the highest hand, the raising round will go counter-clockwise.

Simple way of raising:

  1. Raise: It is to raise 100% of your original bet amount. For example: “The stakes of 2 people A and B are total 500, so each person bet 250, if it is raised then A will add 250, the total goes up to 750”
  2. Call: It is to raise following the component in the front. For example: “If B follows A then B would also bet 250 more, the total goes up to 1000”
  3. All in: It is to raise according to the sum of the raised players. For example: “If A raises all in, A bets on 1000 more (since the sum is 1000), the total goes up to 2000”
  4. Fold: It is to discard the card in hand and to lose the amount bet earlier.

In the first turn (3rd card) when the first person who Raise, the next person can only Call or Raise All in (not allowed to Raise). The first round of betting ends when all players give the command of Call.

Note: There are only 2 betting round in the first Poker deal (i.e. in round 1 each player can Raise all in, but in round 2 (this happens when one or more players command different from the first raiser) then the next person will be forced to Call (except the last one who made the other  order).

Similarly, but the 2nd Poker deal (4th card) will have 3 betting rounds; The final deal (5th card) will also have infinite betting rounds

The player can Fold to preserve the money later if the previous hand is too weak or low compared to another player.

Similar consideration is given in the Classification table above. If the magnitudes are equal, divide the sum.

If you win, you will receive 100% of the total amount if you have enough stake. If you are short of stakes, you will only get the total of the previous rounds plus a part of the amount you have wagered in the current round.

Side laws:

    • When giving orders (Raise, Fold, Call), it must follow the order, cannot postpone or cancel the order.
    • Players at the table can Raise as 1/4 or 1/2 Raise or also to Double Raise (depending on the agreement of the players).
    • In some places, Raise Yielding is not allowed (that is to yield to others to Poker but only applies to the first player or the Banker)
    • It is possible to Raise guests with many different way of raising.

Control scores when playing Easy or difficult Dice?

One of the most difficult things about playing Dice is controlling your scores. Some experience sharing from Casino Corona can help you:
In a game of Dice (sic bo) the minimum score will be 3 points, the maximum is 3 × 6 = 18 points. Therefore, in the game you must know to judge the score from 3 – 18 points, which number has the highest probability of winning and bet. Of course, this judgment is not random that can be known when based on the results of the previous bet.
Practical examples: If the previous times opened 3, 3, 6, then you can completely count on the last roll, the probability of opening the score 3 is relatively low. Moreover, only basing on the quite large difference between the smallest and largest number of points, you can quite accurately determine the score of the next pours.
To control the score per roll, you need to calculate the angles of the dice to calculate. The common method of rolling the dice is 3-V, which means having 3 points of the opposite 2 dice to form a V-shape intentionally to create point 6 will appear above, the remaining 6 points will be on the front, 8 points on the back, the remaining 8 points will be on the bottom. At the same time while shaking the dice also need to match and not make the dice have high elasticity.
Of course, to do this requires you to practice many times, to gain more experience in how to play Sic Bo.
