The game may be played with a minimum of one (1) and a maximum of (8) decks. No Joker is used in the player of the game. The game utilizes a special 52-card deck with each ace having the work "bonus" printed on it.
The game utilizes a player/dealer position which will be offered clockwise in a continuous and systematic manner amongst all players.
The object of the game is for the players and the player/dealer to add the numerical value of their cards and obtain the best possible hand of 22 or "natural". (A natural pays even money) Any two cards consisting of any special bonus ace with any 10 or face card is a natural and beats all other hands. The value of each player's hand is the sum of the numerical values of his/her cards.
The casino dealer deals the first card to the player seated to the left of the casino dealer, in a clock-wise fashion. Each player is dealt one card face up. The player-dealer receives their first card face up in turn, but it is placed in front of the casino dealer instead of the actual position of the player/dealer. A second card is then dealt face up to all players, starting to the left of the casino dealer and continuing clockwise. The player/dealer's second card is dealer face-down in front of the casino dealer.
Players options are as follows:
A natural 22 is the best possible hand. A player's natural 22 pays even money. If the player and the player/dealer's hands are both a natural, the hand is a push/tie, and no action is taken on the wager.
If a player's total is less than a natural and the player/dealer's total is more than a natural, the player wins the hand.
If a player's total is less than a natural and the player/dealer's total is less than a natural, the hand closest to a natural wins.
If a player and the player/dealer have the same total and it is less than a natural, the hand is a push or tie, and no action is taken on the wager.
If a player's and the player/dealer's totals are more than a natural, the following will apply:
The player/dealer wins all ties or pushers over a natural.
If a player has more than a natural and the player/dealer has less than a natural, the player/dealer wins.
Backline betting is allowed.
