Red Dog


Rule Authority:

InterCasino's Red Dog is played and programmed according to Atlantic City Gaming rules.
Authority: New Jersey Casino Control Commission.
Rule Exception: None.

Premise:

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.

Betting: Players 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.

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 player's 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 player's 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, 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.

Payoffs:

All winning and raise wagers in non-consecutive hands are paid at odds determined by the spread:

Spread Payoffs
1 5:1
2 4:1
3 2:1
4-11 1:1


Betting Limits:
$5 minimum bet.
$300 maximum bet.

Setting your table bet limit: You may also set your table bet limit below the maximum specified limit by selecting Bet Options from the Game Menu. The Modify Table Bet Limit window will appear on the screen. To reduce your maximum table bet limit type in the new limit in the appropriate box and confirm it by typing your PIN in the box below. Click on the OK button to complete the update. Please be aware that you can modify your table bet limit no more than once per week (Friday 12:00 AM EST) and that using the Modify Table Bet Limit function affects the bet limit for all games and not just the game that you are currently playing.

Note:

You may turn on/off the Sound, Voice and Animation during the game by clicking on the Options button located in the lower left-hand area of the console. The setting is turned on when the checkbox is checked and it is turned off when the checkbox is unchecked. You must exit and re-enter the game to activate the Animation feature.
