Game Strategy 

If you have made your bet, click on the "Deal" button and get your hand. Then, you should analyze your hand and decide whether to hold (fix a card) or discard to improve your combination. For example, if you have a winning combination, or a group of cards are part of it, you can hold them to get a better chance to win. To hold a card, click on it or on the "Hold" button. The card will be marked as "Hold". If you have a winning combination or a pair, the cards will be held automatically. To cancel the hold option, click on the "Hold" button or on the card itself. 

Once you have chosen your cards, click the "Draw" button to replace your unfixed cards. A winning combination will bring you an award. The size of the award depends on the type of the combination. The award"s size and the type of the combination will be flashed on the paytable on the upper side of the screen. The gain"s size depends on the bet"s size and will be displayed in the info window on the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. 

Game of odds 

If player wins, players are offered a game of odds (press "DOUBLE") or start a new game (press "COLLECT"). In the chance game a deck of cards face down is displayed. The player can increase his payout two or four times depending on his preference: 

1. The player can increase his win 2x, if he guesses the colour of the next card by pressing "RED" or "BLACK" buttons. 

2. The player can increase his win 4x, if he guesses the card suit by pressing the buttons referring to the four suits. 

If the player does not guess the color or the suit correctly, he loses all his payout in the running game (as well as the bonus game, if applicable) and the chance game is over. In the chance game it is possible to double the payout up to three times and after each stage the player may stop and take his payout by clicking the "EXIT" button.
