 How to play Craps, Baccarat and Keno
 
 
CRAPS Anyone can find the craps table when the dice are hot. It is the romanticised game of rolling fortune, hollering croupiers and a general buzz that doesn't really compare to the rest of the casino floor - and with a few simple tips from our expert you can profit from the hubbub. With the speed at which craps moves, it can draw people in fast and either keep them there all too long or send them away in despair. The house expects 100 decisions per hour at craps, with many players having several bets working at once - not to mention the widest variety of bets in the casino. Betting sequence starts with the come-out roll, when you should place Pass bets (betting with the shooter) or Don't Pass bets (against the shooter). A player designated the shooter then flings the dice to the opposite wall of the table. If the come-out roll is 7 or 11, Pass bets win and Don't Pass bets lose. If the come-out roll is 2, 3, or 12, that's craps, and Pass bets lose. Don't Pass bets win on 2 or 3, but 12 is "barred"; Don't Pass bets neither win nor lose if the come-out roll is 12.
BACCARAT Baccarat is simple but not widely understood - and we at Exec Digital feel it should have a higher profile. The aim is to assemble your hand to contain two or three cards with a total value of nine, or secondly eight. The absolutely perfect hand is one that contains two cards and their value totals nine; this is known as a `Natural Nine' or a `Natural Eight'. If any of the players, including the banker, has a `Natural Nine' or a `Natural Eight' then the other players may not draw a third card - that player is the winner unless there is a tie between two players in which case the game is void. If there are no `Naturals' then players decide whether to bet or fold. There are a select few players who make money out of Baccarat and there are a few factors that decide how profitable you can be.
KENO Keno is more of a game of chance, and thus is better played for fun rather than expected profit. When played live, participants can mark anywhere from 1 to 20 numbers on a card that has 80 numbers arranged in eight rows of ten. The player will then take the card to a keno writer and places a bet that the numbers selected will be among the 20 drawn in the following game. Alternatively, other players can mark a card and give it to a keno runner, whilst supplying them with a bet. It's then taken to the keno writer, followed by the ticket being brought back. The bet is in multiples of the house minimum - often £1. After the 20 numbers are drawn, winning tickets are paid according to a table that varies from house to house. For example, a four-spot ticket with £1 wagered might return the £1 if two numbers hit, bring £5 if three numbers hit, and pay £120 if all four come in. But in another casino, the three-number hit might pay £6 and all four £125, and in another the payoffs might be £5 and £110. Because of the variation, no payback percentage is common enough to be called average. Paybacks range from below 70 percent to more than 80 percent.
