Slot Machine Variants

Here is a brief explanation on every type of online slot machine offered at Play United Casino.

3-Reel Standard Slots
These are the most classic and common slot machines. You bet a certain amount, then spin the three reels and depending on the outcome of the spin, you either win or lose.

3-Reel, Max Bet 2 Slots
These machines allow you to bet the maximum of two coins, not three, as in 3-Reel Standard Slots.

Progressive Jackpot
A progressive jackpot means that a certain percentage of every bet goes into the progressive jackpot pool. You win the jackpot by obtaining a very high symbol combination, usually only when playing for maximum bet.

Bonus Game
Slot machines that have a Bonus Game require you to obtain a special symbol combination, or collect certain symbols. When you do, you will enter a bonus round, with special prizes waiting for you. Please note that in some games you have to play for maximum bet to qualify for a bonus round.

3-Line & 5-Line Slot Machines
These slots machines allwo you to specify your bet per payline, and the paylines on which you bet. A payline is the line along which Your total bet is then line bet x number of lines selected. 3-Line Slots have 3 lines for you to choose between, and 5-Line slots have 5.

Multi-line Slots
The same variation as the 3-Line & 5-Line Slot Machines, only these machines have more than 5 lines, usually 8 or 9.

3-Row & 5-Row Multi-spin Slots
This is the giant leap forward for slot machines. In multi-spin slots, after the first spin you choose which reels you want to hold, then spin the rest of the reels again. 3-row and 5-row mean you have 3 or 5 rows of reels, like in multi-line video poker you have multiple hands.

Casino Hold ’Em Rules

Play United Casino offers Casino Hold ‘Em as a variation of five-card poker. You are dealt two cards, and you must use them along with the five-card flop to make the best possible poker hand. The best possible hand is formed for you automatically.

The AA side bet is optional. Here, you bet on whether the first five cards dealt (your two cards plus the first three flop cards) will include a pair of Aces or better.

Hand ranking at Play United Casino

At every stage of the game round, the best hands available are formed automatically. The dealer has to have at least a pair of 4s to qualify – if not, your Call bet is returned and the Ante bet pays according to the paytable. The Ace is a semi-wildcard; it can be the highest-value card in a straight of A, K, Q, J, 10, or the lowest-value card in a straight of 5, 4, 3, 2, A.

* If the dealer qualifies and you win, your Ante bet pays according to the paytable and your Call bet pays even money.

* If you and the dealer have equal hands, the highest card out of the remaining ones available to each of you determines the winner.

* If you and the dealer have hands of the same type, the one that includes the highest-value card wins (i.e. Three Kings beats Three Queens; a flush of A, 6, 5, 4, 3 beats a flush of K, J, 10, 8, 7).


Paytables
When you win, your bet is returned to you along with your payout. Winning hands pay according to the following tables:

AA bet

Hand Payout
Royal Flush 100 to 1
Straight flush 50 to 1
4 of a kind 40 to 1
Full house 30 to 1
Flush 20 to 1
Straight or lower 7 to 1


Ante Bet

Hand Payout
Royal Flush 100 to 1
Straight Flush 20 to 1
4 of a Kind 10 to 1
Full House 3 to 1
Flush 2 to 1
Straight or lower 1 to 1

Casino Craps Rules

Play United Casino offers a thrilling game of Craps that are based on the following rules. To start, the first roll in a Craps round is called the come out roll. If the dice total is 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10, then the point is established. A total of 2, 3, 7, 11, or 12 on the come out roll immediately ends the round. When the point has been established, an “ON” puck will be placed on the point. After the point is rolled, the dice will be rolled continuously until the same point is rolled again, or a 7 is rolled.

Pass Line Bets
The pass line bet is placed on the pass line before the come out roll. If a 7 or an 11 is rolled, you win and the round is done. If a 2, 3, or 12 is rolled, it is craps and you lose. Any other number (4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10) becomes the point. You win the pass line bet if the point is rolled before a 7. You lose the pass line bet if a 7 is rolled before the point. A winning pass line bet pays even money (1:1).

Don’t Pass Line Bets
A don’t pass line bet is the opposite of a pass line bet, and is placed on the “Don’t Pass Bar” before the come out roll. In a don’t pass line bet, you are betting that a 7 will be rolled before the point. You win on the come out roll with craps (2 or 3), and on any other roll with a 7. If the come out roll is a 12, a don’t pass line bet is returned to you in a push. You lose on the come out roll if it is either a 7 or an 11, and on any other roll if it is the point.

A winning don’t pass line bet pays even money (1:1) at Play United Casino.

Come Bets
To place a come bet, put your chips in the box labeled Come. You win even money if the next roll is either a 7 or an 11. You lose if the next roll is craps (2, 3, or 12). If the shooter rolls a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10, then that number becomes the come point, and the come bet is moved from the “COME” bar to the box corresponding to the come point. If the shooter rolls the come point again before rolling a 7, you win the bet. If a 7 is rolled first, you lose the bet. The come bet pays even money (1:1).

Don’t Come Bets
A don’t come bet is the opposite of a come bet. It is placed after the come out roll in the “Don’t Come Bar” on the craps table. If the shooter rolls a 3 or a 2, the don’t come bet wins. If the shooter rolls a 7 or an 11, the don’t come bet loses. If the shooter rolls a 12, the bet will be returned to the player in a push.

If the roll is a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10, that number becomes the “don’t come point,” and the don’t come bet is moved from the “Don’t Come Bar” to the bar in the upper left corner of the box corresponding to the don’t come point. Once the don’t come point is established, don’t come bets win even money (1 to 1) if a 7 is rolled, and lose if the don’t come point is rolled.

Odds Bets
An odds bet is a backup bet on a pass, don’t pass, come, and don’t come bet. Your maximum bet is three times your original bet. Pass odds and come odds pay 2:1 on a roll of a 4 or a 10, 3:2 on a roll of a 5 or a 9, and 6:5 on a roll of a 6 or an 8. Don’t pass odds pay 1:2 on a roll of a 4 or a 10, 2:3 on a roll of a 5 or a 9, and 5:6 on a roll of a 6 or an 8. Unlike original pass, don’t pass, come and don’t come bets, unresolved odds bets can be removed from the table during play.

Pass Line Odds Bets
Place a pass line odds bet by clicking on the craps table outside of the “PASS LINE” bar, under your original pass line bet. A winning pass line odds bet pays true odds: 2:1 on a roll of a 4 or a 10, 3:2 on a roll of a 5 or a 9, and 6:5 on a roll of a 6 or an 8.

Don’t Pass Line Odds Bets
Place a don’t pass line odds bet by clicking on the right side of your original bet in the “Don’t Pass Bar”, exactly on the 6x6 dice image. A winning don’t pass line odds bet pays true odds: 1:2 on a roll of a 4 or a 10, 2:3 on a roll of a 5 or a 9, and 5:6 on a roll of a 6 or an 8.

Come and Don’t Come Odds Bets
Come and don’t come odds bets are placed beneath the come and don’t come bets, after they have been moved to the point’s box. A winning come odds bet pays: 2:1 on a roll of a 4 or a 10, 3:2 on a roll of a 5 or a 9, and 6:5 on a roll of a 6 or an 8. A winning don’t come odds bet pays: 1:2 on a roll of a 4 or a 10, 2:3 on a roll of a 5 or a 9, and 5:6 on a roll of a 6 or an 8.

Field Bets
A field bet bets that the next roll of the dice will be a 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, or 12. To place a field bet, place your chips on the Field bar. If the shooter rolls a 2 or a 12, you get paid double your initial bet (2:1). If a 3, 4, 9, 10, or 11 comes up, you get paid even money (1:1). You lose the bet if a 5, 6, 7, or 8 is rolled.

Big 6 and Big 8 Bets
Place your chips in the box marked Big 6 or Big 8. If the number you select is rolled before a 7, you win even money (1:1).

Place Win Bets
Place win bets are made on the following dice totals: 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10. Place your chips in the box underneath these numbers. You are allowed to make place bets at any time, but the place win bet is off during the come-out roll. You win if the shooter rolls your number before a seven. The payouts depend on the number you bet on:

Number Payout
6 and 8 7:6
5 and 9 7:5
4 and 10 9:5


Place Lose Bets
Place lose bets are just like place win bets, except you are paid if the shooter rolls a seven before the number you bet on. Place your chips in the box above these numbers. The payouts depend on the number you bet on:

Number Payout
6 and 8 4:5
5 and 9 5:8
4 and 10 5:11


Buy Bets
A buy bet is the same as a place bet with the exception being the payout. Buy bets are off during the come out roll. To distinguish the buy bet from a come bet, the buy bet is labeled with a “BUY” marker. When winning a Buy bet, a 5% commission (vigorish) is charged. Your winnings at Play United Casino are paid at true odds: 6:5 on numbers 6 and 8, 3:2 on numbers 5 and 9, and 2:1 on numbers 4 and 10.

Lay Bets
A lay bet is the opposite of a buy bet. A lay bet is labeled with a “LAY” marker. It bets that a 7 will be rolled before a 4, 6, 8, 9, or 10. It is a bet against the dice, which means you win if a 7 is rolled before the number you selected. When winning the Lay bet, a 5% commission (vigorish) is charged. Lay bet winnings are paid at true odds: 5:6 on numbers 6 and 8, 2:3 on numbers 5 and 9, and 1:2 on numbers 4 and 10.

Any 7 Bets
Place your chips in the area marked “Seven”. You win this bet if a 7 is rolled next. This bet pays 4:1.

Any 11 Bets
Place your chips in the box with the two dice that add up to 11. You win this bet if an 11 is rolled next. If an 11 is rolled, you win 15:1.

Any Craps Bets

In any craps bet, you win if one of the craps numbers (2, 3, or 12) is rolled next. The any craps bet is placed in the “Any Craps” box. This bet pays 7:1.

C & E Bets
The letters C and E represent two different bets. C bet is the same as placing a bet in the “Any Craps” betting area. Click on the letter C to place your chips in the “Any Craps” betting area. E bet is the same as placing an Any 11 bet. Click on the letter E to place your chips in the “Any 11” betting area.

Horn Bets
Place your chips in the box where the two dice add up to 2, 3, 11, or 12. The horn bet wins if the shooter rolls a 2, 3, 11 or 12 next. A winning horn bet pays 15:1 on the numbers 3 and 11 and 30:1 on numbers 2 and 12.

Hard way Bets
A hard way bet bets that the shooter will roll a 4, 6, 8, or 10 as doubles (2+2, 3+3, 4+4, or 5+5) before rolling a 7. The hard way bet is placed in the box on the craps table that contains the two dice that correspond to the total of the doubles. Rolling a number by doubles is said to be rolling the number “the hard way.” An example is rolling a 4 with a 2 and a 2. An example of an easy way is rolling a 4 with a 3 and a 1. A winning hard way bet pays 7:1 on the numbers 4 and 10 and 9:1 on the numbers 6 and 8.

Progressive Blackjack™ Rules

Play United Casino offers a thrilling variation of standard Blackjack that features a progressive sidebet. Play United offers six deck Blackjack. If you are not familiar with Blackjack, you may want to review Blackjack Rules first.

Progressive Jackpot Side Bet:
In this game you have the option of making an additional bet to try and win a jackpot. Click on the coin slit above the bet area to place the side bet. The blinking light above the slit will turn green. The cost of the side bet is $1 (or equivalent in your currency), out of which a certain percentage goes to the progressive jackpot pool. If you get a winning card combination as described in the Progressive paytable, you get an additional payout. The highest progressive payout is the progressive jackpot and is won upon receiving four consecutive Aces of the same suit and starting from the first card in the hand. Note that all progressive wins require that the card combinations (one to four Aces) are consecutive and starting from the first card in the hand. These wins are awarded at the end of the game round, and if you’ve split your hand, they are calculated separately for each of the new hands.

Play United Casino's Progressive paytable is displayed when you click on Show Paytable on the left side of the screen, just under the ticker that shows the current size of the jackpot.

Jackpot
One of the possible wins in this game is the progressive Jackpot. A small percentage of each bet, by every person playing this game in each of many online casinos, is added to a common pot. When a player gets the right result, that player wins the entire Jackpot (in some games you can also win part of it).

After you win a Play United Jackpot, a new pot is started, with the casinos contributing a base amount of money (called a seed). This ensures that even if you get a Jackpot result in a game right after someone else has won the Jackpot, you will still get a large win.

Each game has its own Jackpot, built up by all the casinos that offer the game.

Please note:

* In some games you have to make a specific bet to be eligible for the Jackpot.
* If you get disconnected in the middle of a game round, your game does not change the value of the Jackpot. The state of the game up to that point is remembered by the casino; the next time you log in you can finish your game round with the same odds and without placing a new bet.
* If a Jackpot is being discontinued (a game is closed and removed from the casino client), you will be notified of it by the casino.


Play United Casino's Blackjack Jackpot works like this:

* Seed (amount of money in the Jackpot): 50,000 x your jackpot bet size.
* Contribution Rate (% of each bet towards the Jackpot): 3%
* Win Condition (the result you require to win the Jackpot): Four (4) consecutive aces of the same suit, beginning with the 1st card in the hand.
* Win Requirements (required to be eligible for the Jackpot): Place the jackpot bet.


Multihand
You can also play this game in Multihand mode. Select “Multihand” in the casino lobby when starting the game. You can play with up to five hands simultaneously. Place bets by clicking on the different bet areas. You can play one hand only if you wish, or any number of hands up to five. Every hand may have a different bet amount.

Blackjack Switch Rules

The object of Blackjack Switch at Play United Casino is for the total of your cards in either hand to be closer to 21 than the dealer’s cards, without exceeding 21. Card values are the same as in standard Blackjack – aces count as either 1 or 11, face cards as 10, and number cards as their face value.

The rules are the same as in standard Blackjack, except you have two hands, which you play in turn – first the right and then the left one, then the dealer plays his hand. You may split, double, take insurance etc. just like in standard Blackjack at Play United Casino. An exception from the standard Blackjack is that the dealer always hits soft 17 – meaning he always draws one more card when he has 17 with an ace counted as 11. Also, ‘Blackjacks’ pay 1/1 instead of 3/2 although more ‘Blackjacks’ are created due to the ‘switching’ option. (See below). Another exception is that Blackjack rule no. 5 (“If the player doubles and the dealer’s first card is of value 10, and the dealer gets blackjack, the player loses only the initial bet.”) does not apply in Blackjack Switch.

Peek
If the dealer’s up card is an Ace or a 10-card, the dealer will peek at his cards to check for Blackjack before the player makes his moves. If the dealer does in fact have Blackjack and the player doesn’t, he will reveal his cards and collect all bets, and the game round will be over with the dealer winning. If either of the player’s two initial hands (before switching) makes up Blackjack, that hand pushes against the dealer and the bet for it is returned to the player.

Switch
Prior to any hits, you may switch the top cards of your two hands.

Push 22
Dealer will “push” on a total of 22 (except 'Blackjacks' will still win). This means that whenever the dealer's total reaches 22 then all bets are 'pushed', regardless of their total except if a player either has a ‘Blackjack’, which will still win, or has ‘Bust’, which will still lose.

Super Match
The small circle between the standard bet areas is the super bet area. The super bet wins if your initial 4 cards contain 2 or more matching cards. For example, if your right hand is a Queen and a Six, and your left hand a Queen and a King, you have a pair and your super bet wins. The win ratios are written on the table.

Summary Of Rules
* Dealer Hits Soft 17
* Blackjack pays 1/1
* Switch top cards of the two hands
* All doubles and splitting allowed
* Dealer pushes on 22 (except Blackjack will still wins)

Play United Casino is for the total of your cards to be closer to 21 than the dealer’s cards, without exceeding 21. In Blackjack, aces count as either 1 or 11, face cards as 10, and number cards at their face value.

If you receive an ace and a ten-value card as your first two cards, you have Blackjack and win 1.5 times your bet (if your bet was $10, you receive $25). If the total value of your cards is closer to 21 than the dealer’s, you win your bet amount (if your bet was $10, you receive $20). If the total of your cards is more than 21, you “bust” and lose your bet. If you and the dealer have the same card total (17 and up) neither of you win and your bet is returned to you in a “push”. Blackjack beats a score of 21.

Play United Casino's Blackjack follows the standard “Las Vegas Strip” rules, with the following exceptions:

* After each round, used cards are returned to the deck and the deck is shuffled.
* The player may not split a split hand.
* Only one card is drawn to split aces.
* The player may double after splitting.
* The dealer will not check for Blackjack in any case.
* If the player doubles and the dealer's first card is of value 11 (ACE), and the dealer gets Blackjack, the player loses both his bets. If the dealer’s first card is of value 10, and the dealer gets Blackjack, the player gets the Double bet back.


Split
If your first two cards have the same value, you may split them into two separate hands by placing a second bet equal to the original bet. You will then draw additional cards to each hand. You may draw as many cards as you like on each split hand, but if you split two aces, you receive only one additional card for each ace. If you receive an ace and a ten-value card in a split hand, it is considered 21 and not Blackjack.

Double
If, after you are dealt your first two cards, you think that the third card will allow you to beat the dealer’s hand, you can double your bet. The bet amount becomes twice the original (with the difference taken out of your balance), and you are dealt one more card.

Insurance
If the dealer shows an Ace in his initial hand, you are given a chance to insure your bet against him having a Blackjack. If you get Insurance, an amount equal to half your original bet is placed separately on the table. If the dealer does have Blackjack, you are paid 2 to 1 on your insurance. This way you do not lose your original bet (because you get the 2x half your original bet, plus the insurance amount back). If the dealer does not have Blackjack, you lose the insurance amount, even if you end up losing.

10 Card Charlie
It is theoretically possible for the player to draw 10 cards without going bust. In this case the player’s hand automatically wins, except when the dealer has Blackjack.

Winnings Pays
Winning Hand 1 to 1
Insurance 2 to 1
Blackjack 3 to 2
