Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9958211A1] A casino card game having a substantially semi-circle shaped card game surface (10) is provided for participants to selectively place bets on a player hand winning zone (20), player having Blackjack zone (18), the dealer hand winning zone (24), the dealer having Blackjack zone (22), and a tie betting zone (26). The surface (10) has seven sectors (16) and the above betting zones (18 to 26) are arranged in each of the sectors (16). Cards are dealt to only the player hand (28) and the dealer hand (30) positioned on the surface (10). A bet on a player hand winning zone (20) or a dealer hand winning zone (26) is a winner when the player hand (28) or the dealer hand (30) wins. A bet on a player Blackjack zone (18) or the dealer Blackjack zone (22) is a winner only when the player hand (28) or the dealer hand (30) has a Blackjack hand. A tie hand is declared when the cumulative card values of the player hand (28) and the dealer hand (30) are the same whether they are bust (exceeding 21) or not. A winning hand is declared when a hand has a cumulative card value of 17 or more and is closer to 21 than the other hand, or has a Blackjack hand and the other hand does not have a Blackjack hand. Winning bets are paid according to the odds allocated for the betting zones (18 to 26).
