Blackjack is a standard casino favorite but, with our optional bonus bet, you have even more ways to win! Each round begins with the standard Blackjack wager, and then players may also place the Royal Match wager. Players will then receive their first two cards, and if the cards are the same suit or a Royal Match (a King and Queen in suit), they win.
The Blackjack Match side bet, combined with the Stax Progressive system, offers more excitement, and more ways to win! When you are dealt a blackjack, you know you can’t lose, but now there are so many more ways to win! If you’ve made the Blackjack Match side bet, you and the dealer have matching suited Ace-King Blackjacks , you’ll win the top progressive prize, currently totaling more than $40,749 (as of 6/5/2021). There are also three other progressive jackpots, as well as the MUST HIT BY progressive. The MUST HIT BY jackpot will always hit before $200, and it doesn’t matter what your hand is! The MUST HIT BY progressive hits frequently and adds to the excitement of every hand.
Spanish 21 is a fast-paced variation of blackjack that has become increasingly popular. The game is played on a standard blackjack table. The main difference between Spanish 21 compared to blackjack is the removal of all 10’s in the decks. Jacks, Queens, and Kings remain, but all natural 10’s are removed from every deck used at the table.
If you know much about blackjack you’re probably thinking that Spanish 21 holds a very high casino advantage. By removing all of the 10’s, Spanish 21 gains an increase in house advantage by about 25%. However, to compensate for removing the 10’s and the higher house advantage, there are very lucrative bonuses and additional rules, compared to blackjack, which bring the house advantage back down.
One of the most important rules in Spanish 21, that highly differs from blackjack, is the rule that a player’s 21 always beats a dealer’s 21.

The Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino is proud to announce that we have added an exciting new side-bet to our Three Card Poker game called the 6 Card Bonus! The Six Card Bonus side bet is based on the best 5 card poker hand when the player combines their three-card hand and the dealers three-card hand. The player wins with three-of-a-kind or better. See pay table for odds.
3-Card Poker offers 3 ways to play and 4 ways to win! Players may bet against the dealer, bet on the value of their own 3-card hand, or both!
Playing against the dealer is slightly different. This type of play begins with an Ante Wager. After looking at their hand, they may fold or place an equal Play Wager to stay in the game. If a player’s hand beats the dealer’s qualifying hand of a Queen-high or better, they win both wagers. If the dealer doesn’t qualify, players win the Ante Wager, and their Play Wager pushes.
To play the hand value only, players make the Pair Plus wager. This wins if their hand contains a pair or better. To play both the Ante and Pair Plus, players must make a Play Wager if they have placed the Ante, or they forfeit the Ante.
With premium hands of a straight or higher, players win an Ante Bonus Payout even if the dealer doesn’t qualify, or even if they lose to the dealer!
Face Up Pai Gow Poker™ features head-to-head play against the dealer and offers the optional Fortune Bonus SM and Ace-High wagers. As in standard Pai Gow, each player and dealer receive seven-cards, but in Face Up Pai Gow Poker the dealer’s cards are dealt face-up Face Up Pai Gow Poker is a commission-free game. You do not pay a 5%commission when you beat the dealer; however, when the dealer plays Ace-High, you automatically push.
To begin each round, make a standard Pai Gow wager. You may also make the Fortune Bonus and Ace-High wagers.
The Fortune Bonus bet wins if your best possible five-card hand is three of-a-kind or better. If you wager at least $5 on the Fortune Bonus, the dealer will place an “envy” button next to your bet. This qualifies you for an envy bonus payout. See pay table for odds.
The dealer pays any envy bonuses at the end of the round. If at least one player receives a hand that qualifies for Envy Bonus payouts, all players with envy buttons win. You can win multiple Envy Bonuses in a round, but you CANNOT win an Envy Bonus for your own hand or the dealer’s hand.
This bet wins if the dealer is forced to play an Ace-High Pai Gow. See layout for odds.
Plays the same as regular Pai Gow with the exception that it replaces the taking of the commission on every player’s winning hand by “barring” one specific Dealer’s hand – a Queen High Pai Gow. A Pai Gow is a hand of seven different ranks and which does not contain a straight, a flush or a straight flush in it. It is a hand defined by a high card. If the Dealer’s hand is a Pai Gow with the highest card being a Queen, then the hand is called the “Queen’s Dragon” and all wagers from players on the base game will be a “push”.
Baccarat (pronounced bah-cuh-rah) is a card game won by betting on the hand, either the Player or Banker, who comes closest to a point total of nine. The term “Player” does not refer to the Guest and the term “Banker” does not refer to the House. These are terms used to describe the options of which a Guest may place their wager. Tens, Jacks, Queens, and Kings have a value of zero. Ace is a one and all other cards are face value. Initially both the Player and the Banker will receive two cards and based on the rules of the game, a third card may be issued. In Baccarat, it is the combined value of the first two cards dealt to Player and Banker that will dictate the action of standing or hitting. The first card is always dealt to the Player; the second is dealt to the Banker, third to the Player, and fourth to the Banker. The Player hand is always acted upon first. Once each side has two cards, the Dealer will reveal each hand and announce the total. Example: The first two cards dealt to the Player are an Eight and a Seven. The Dealer will announce “Player has five” although the total value of the cards is fifteen, on Baccarat, only the last digital is used for any total of ten or more.
Dai Baccarat is a commission free version of baccarat and it it comprised of two (2) main gaming wagers and three (3) optional side bets. The main game wagers are on the Banker of Player and Tiger, Ox, and Kill are the optional side bets.
Tiger 40:1 Banker’s three-card 7 WINS
Kill 30:1 Banker’s three-card 7 loses to 7-9 OR Player’s three-card 6 loses to 6-9
OX 40:1 Player’s three-card 6 WINS
Baccarat, (pronounced bah-cuh-rah), is a card game based on which hand, either the BANK or PLAYER, comes closest to a point total of 9. Tens, face cards or cards totaling 10 count as zero. Aces count as 1, deuces count as 2 and so on. In the game of baccarat, the SECOND digit of the point total is used in determining the value of the hand. For example, 8 and 6 total 14; the value of this hand would be 4 as 4 is the second digit of the total.
The version of baccarat used by the Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino will be played with 8 decks of regular playing cards, 2 cut cards and a shoe.
The values of the cards used will be as follows:
In the game of baccarat, players will have 3 betting options: BANK, PLAYER and TIE. When a player bets on the TIE, they are betting that the final totals of both the BANK and PLAYER hands are the same. If this happens, a TIE bet will be paid 9 for 1.
The version used by the Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino also offers a “Dragon Bonus”. This bonus awards payouts to NON-natural winning hands based on how many points the hand won by. For example, a non-natural hand that wins by 6 points (one hand totals 1 and the other hand totals 7) will receive a bonus of 4 to 1 for the amount bet. On the “Dragon Bonus”, natural winners are paid 1 to 1 or even money and natural ties are a push. Any other outcome other than a natural winner, natural tie or a win by a total of 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9 points results in a loss of the “Dragon Bonus” bet.
To play the Dragon Bonus side bet for baccarat, players must make the Dragon Bonus wager before the dealer reveals any cards. The dealer will then deal and reconcile the traditional baccarat hands according to house procedures.
Natural winners pay even-money on the Dragon Bonus wager and in the event of a natural that ties, the Dragon Bonus wager pushes. Non-natural winners that win by at least four points pay even-money, and the larger the margin of victory, the larger the payout.

How to play: Players make equal bets in the Ante and Blind circles and may also make the Trips bonus bet. Once players receive their two hole cards, they can either check or bet 4x their Ante. The dealer then reveals the three-card flop. If players haven’t already made a Play bet, they have a choice: check or bet 2x their Ante. The dealer then reveals the final two community cards and if players have not already bet, they can fold or bet 1x their Ante.
Next, the dealer reveals his two hole cards and announces his hand. If the player’s hand beats the dealer, their Play and Ante bets win even money. If the dealer’s hand beats the player, the player’s wagers lose. If players tie the dealer’s hand, their bets push. The Blind bet pays if the player’s winning hand is at least a straight or better, but if players beat the dealer with less than a straight or better, it pushes.
The dealer needs at least a pair to qualify. If the dealer doesn’t qualify, he returns the player’s Ante and all other bets receive action.
