The initial move involves the dealer displaying two cards up from where the direction of play is set. Players can also place a bet on the highest card value.
- The standard number of cards per shuffle must be set at the onset-- some casinos have their own standard but most prefer 8.
- Players place bets after which the dealer distributes the cards. Depending on the bet placed, there will be a variety of possible outcomes. They include:
- Tie bet
- Dragon or Tiger
- Suited tie
- Big or small
A player's winnings are determined by the choice made for either of the above outcomes and the corresponding odds.
