InterCasino's Red Dog is played and programmed according to Atlantic
City Gaming rules.
Authority: New Jersey Casino Control Commission.
Rule Exception: None.
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. One deck of 52 cards is used. The cards
are shuffled after each round of play.
How to Play:
The game is played on a table similar to a blackjack table.
begin by making a wager that is made by
selecting the desired amount of chips at the bottom of the casino game
window. Your bet total is shown in the Player Information box. 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.
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
Red Dog is then placed on the table indicating the spread between the
two cards the dealer has drawn. If the dealer draws a non-consecutive
hand then the players have the option to double their wager by clicking
on the "RAISE" button. In this case a third card is drawn. If the
dealer draws a pair hand or a consecutive hand then a third card will
not be drawn. The details pertaining to the three different scenarios
are described below.
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 player's original wager is returned.
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 player's original wager is
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, equal to the amount of
the original wager, by clicking on the "RAISE" prior to the dealer
drawing the third card. Alternatively, players may stand on their
original wager amount by clicking on the "STAND" button. Once the
player has clicked on "RAISE" or "STAND" the dealer draws a 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.
All winning and raise wagers in non-consecutive hands are paid at odds
determined by the spread:
$5 minimum bet.
$300 maximum bet.
