The game is played with seven hands using one deck of 52 cards plus one Joker.
The Joker can be used as an Ace, any face card (Jack, Queen or King), any number in a straight, an Ace in a flush, or any number in a straight flush. Other cards count according to their face value.
Ranking of cards from Highest to lowest:
a. Royal flush (A, K, Q, J & 10 of the same suit)
b. Straight flush (5 succeeding numbers, same suit)
c. Four of a kind (4 cards with same number/face)
d. Full house (a pair and three cards with the same number/face)
e. Flush (5 cards of the same suit)
f. Straight (5 consecutive numbers, mixed suits, lowest straight is Ace to Five)
g. Three of a Kind/Trio
h. Two Pairs
i. One Pair
j. No pair, Ace high
In case of foul play where the player puts the Low hand higher than the High hand, the Player automatically loses. (This rule does not apply to the Banker).
In case a Player's cards are identical with those of the Banker although different in suit, the Banker wins over that particular hand.
All winning bets are paid 0.95 to 1.
