Top 5 Card Games at Capitol Casino

Posted on: July 24, 2017

Card games are one of the most played games at casinos. Who doesn’t love the feel of a freshly opened deck of cards in their hands? Or the smell of brand new cards as they are shuffled in front of you? The anticipation as to what hand you will be dealt always gets the blood running!

Capitol Casino offers a number of card games if you are in the mood for a little gambling:

Omaha Hi – Lo: This is a community card poker game similar to Texas Hold’em. However, in Omaha Hi-Lo, each player makes a separate five card high hand and a separate five card low hand. Each player is dealt 4 cards and must make his or her hand using EXACTLY 2 cards. Players may use any combination of their four cards, but must use 2 out of their hand and 3 on the board.

Black Jack: Blackjack is a card game played between the house and the player. The dealer deals out two cards to each player and their self. The dealer has one card face up and one down. The players then take turns trying to get as close to 21 without going over. Aces are equal to 1 or 11. Face cards are 10 and number cards are face value. The player calls hit to get a card, and stand to end their turn. A player may also call double to double their bet and may only receive one card and the turn ends. If a player has two identically numbered cards, they may split. This requires them to double their bet and then get two more cards making two new hands that they may play. After all players turns are over, the dealer reveals their card. The dealer then hits if the total is 16 or less and stands on 17 and higher. Everyone who has a hand that beats the dealer without going over 21 wins.

EZ Baccarat: In Baccarat each player has three options: Player, Tie, and Banker. When all players have placed their bets, the dealer deals out two 2-card hands, one is the banker hand while the other is the player hand. The hands are added up. If a hand totals over ten, the ten is dropped (I.E. 9+5=14=4). A hand equaled to 10 becomes a 0 or baccarat. The winning hand would be the higher of the 2 and anyone who placed a corresponding bet wins.

Pai Gow Poker: Pai Gow Poker is played against the house instead of the other players. The dealer deals out 7 cards to each player and himself in rotation. Everyone then looks at their cards and tries to make the best 5-card and 2-card poker hands. The 5-card hand must rank higher than the 2-card hand. The hands are then compared against the dealers. If both hands beat the dealer, the player wins. If both lose, the player loses. If both the dealer and the player win on a hand, it is a push.
