PREMISE TOP

The objective of Red Dog is to predict whether the value of a randomly selected card falls between the value of two cards drawn previously by the dealer. In this game, the value of any card from 2 to 10 counts at face value, a jack counts as 11, a queen as 12, a king as 13, and an ace counts as 14.

HOW TO PLAY TOP

The game is played on a table similar to a blackjack table. Players begin by making a wager that is made by selecting the desired amount of chips from the tray at the bottom of the casino screen. Your bet total is shown in the "Bet:" field to the right of the chip tray. The minimum amount that may be bet is highlighted. This amount may be increased or decreased by placing the mouse on the stack that you wish to add or subtract to your bet. Each time you click the left mouse button you will add a chip from that pile to your planned wager amount. Likewise by clicking on the right mouse button you can decrease your planned wager amount.

A bet may be placed on the table by clicking with the left mouse button on the "BET" area on the table. Once a wager has been placed, players press the "DEAL" button and the dealer draws two cards and places them face up on the table. A black marker (with a Red Dog on top) will be then be placed on the table indicating the spread between the two cards the dealer has drawn. Depending on the value of the two cards drawn by the dealer, players have the option to make a raise wager by clicking on the "RAISE" area on the table and a third card may or may not be drawn. This will depend on the values of the two cards drawn by the dealer. Three different situations may occur, and they are summarized below.

Pair Hand:

A pair hand occurs when the dealer draws two cards of the same value (for example, two Kings). In this case, the dealer will automatically draw a third card. If the value of the third card is the same as the previous two, all players win with a payoff of 11:1. If the value of the third card is different from the previous two, the hand is declared a push and the players original wager is returned.

Consecutive Hand:

When the value of the two cards drawn by the dealer are consecutive (for example, a 5 and 6, or Queen and King) this is called a consecutive hand. In this case, the dealer will not draw a third card, the hand is declared a push and the players original wager is returned.

Non-Consecutive Hand:

Most hands in Red Dog fall into this category. When the dealer draws two cards which are not consecutive or the same, this is called a non-consecutive hand. In this case, the dealer will announce the spread between the two drawn cards and place a Red Dog on the table indicating the spread. The spread is number of values that fall between the values of the two cards drawn by the dealer. For example, if the two cards drawn by the dealer were 2 and Jack, the spread is 8 since there are eight values between the 2 and Jack (3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10).

When the spread is announced and marked (by the Red Dog), players have the option to make a raise wager by clicking on the "RAISE" area on the table up to the amount of the original wager prior to the dealer drawing the third card. Players then hit the "DRAW" button to prompt the dealer to draw the third card.

Players win if the value of the third card falls between the value of the two cards originally drawn by the dealer. However, if the third card drawn is identical to either of the first two, the bet is lost. There is never a push in non-consecutive hands.
