Introduction - Quick Facts
The idea of the game is to get with your cards closer to 21 with out going over than the dealer. Each card has a different value ranging from 1-11. All number cards keep their value the Jack, Queen and King have a value of 10 and the Aces can either be 1 or 11 which ever helps you the most. If you go over 21 it is called "Busting" and you will automatically lose. Advanced players of blackjack might be interested to know the bootleggers shoe using a one deck system which is shuffled at the start of each game.
In Depth
After starting a game you will be presented with 2 cards, adding these two cards together will give you your total. You will also be able to see one of the dealers cards, however one will be hidden, the dealer however can see all of your cards giving them an advantage. You will be presented with 2 buttons "Hit" or "Stand". Hitting will give you a new card, however if you go over 21 you will automatically lose and the dealer will automatically win. You can take as many cards as you want (without going over 21 of course). When you have enough cards click "Stand" this will end your turn and trigger the dealers turn. The dealers turn is taken all at once and the results will be displayed immediately, the dealer must take a card if they have under 16 (unless you have busted when this phase isn't trigged). However there advantage is they can see what you have. If they have beaten you with their current cards and have over 16 they will stand if not they will continue to take a card. The dealer however can't take more than 4 cards which gives some of the power back to the player. If by any chance you happen to get 21 with your first two cards it is called blackjack and you will gain 2.5x your bet. If you and the dealer happen to have the same amount then the dealer will not take any more cards, the game will be called a push and your money returned. There is only one deck of cards in the bootleggers version of Blackjack, that means if you have 4 aces the dealer won't have any, however due to the deck being shuffled at the start of each game it makes card counting impossible, however it does provide users will statistical data that can help them, for example if you have 2 face cards (Jack, Queen, King) the dealer has less of a chance of getting these cards.

Winning Payouts:
x1 Getting the same as the dealer called a "Push"
x2 Getting closer than 21 than the dealer without getting blackjack
x2.5 Get 21 with your first 2 cars, called "Blackjack"

Bet Range
minimum bet: $10
Maximum bet: Set by Owner ($2,500 if transferred via escrow or changed by owner)

Poker is a game between you and three other players. The style of bootleggers poker is Texas Holdem, you play just one hand at a table before leaving. The amount you must put up to start with (called the Ante) is set by the person who creates the table (called the dealer), the maximum amount you can bet from them on is also set by the dealer. Each player gets to cards, they must make the best hand as possible using either or both of the cards they have and those on the board. Cards are aded to the board, after each section you will be given a chance to bet.
In Depth
Poker is a game between 4 players in bootleggers. To create a table go to the "Create Game" at the bottom of the page. The minimum Ante is the amount players must put up to join, you also have to pay this amount, The maximum bet is the amount the maximum amount of money each player can then put in to the game in total (not per a turn like some think). Once you have created your table you must wait for people to join, there are four spots, you as the dealer take up one of them. If you are wanting to join a game, find the one you want to join normally with the best ante and max bet, select the radio button next to the table and then click "Join". You will see your name appear on the page taking a seat at one of the tables, by clicking join the ante will be taken from your money on hand. You can leave the table any time before the game starts to recollect your ante this includes the dealer.

While waiting for the game to start you may notice little colored dots before players names. This indicates there status at the time. Green stands of Online, Black stands for idle and Red stands for offline. The status of the dealer is the one that really matter as he is the only person who can start the game.It should be pointed out that while in jail you cannot access the poker page, therefore once you have joined a table it might be wise to stay away from crimes and other actions that could get you caught, or if you do have points handy to get out of jail quickly. Once the table is full the dealer can start the game, once the game is started you should get a pop up box telling you so, however on some computers you may not depending on if you have javascript turned on or not. It is therefore wise to check the poker page every 40 seconds.

Once the game is started you will see four lots of 2 cards, 3 sets will be face down and yours will be face up. The first round of betting will start. The idea of the game is to make the best 5 card hand you can from the 2 cards you have and the 5 that will be placed in the center of the board as the game goes on. If you have good cards that you think could win you will want to draw as much money in to the pot (winnings) as possible. If you have bad cards you might want to fold and leave the table cutting your losses without needing to bet higher. Once the betting has started each player has 60 seconds from the time their turn starts to select an option or automatically fold, to start with Player 2 will have to decide if he wants to "Check", "Bet" or "Fold". Checking will result in the betting being pasted to player 3, folding will remove the player from the game (a quit button if you will, you will lose all the money you have put in up to this point). The bet button will allow you to challenge other players to either call you, raise you or fold. The bet you place must be lower than the maximum bet (this includes the amount you have already bet) and the money will come from the cash you have on hand. Once player 2 turn is finish it is past on to player 3 who has the same options as player 2 unless player 2 betted. If player 2 betted then player 3 will have the change to call the bet which will take the money from his account and more on to the next player, raise the bet if the maximum bet hasn't already been reached or fold which will remove them from the game however they won't have to pay the increase of the current bet. They will however lose all the money the have put in so far including the ante and past bets. The betting loop will go on till everyone has either clicked stand or from the last bet the other players click "Call".

Once the first round of betting is over three cards will be revealed on the board, this is called the "Flop". You could now make your first hand using your 2 cards and all three cards on the board. After the flop the second round of betting will start. When this is over one more card will be revealed called the "Turn" and this will start the third round of betting. When this is over the last card will be shown called the "River". One final round of betting will take place.

It should be noted that the game can end early if all but one leaves, where he will be declared the winner. However if it does get to the last round of betting once it is over you will have to select which cards you want to use. Simply click on a card to select it, you must try to make the best hand you can with 5 cards, to see which hards are better than others click "view hands" at the top of the page.
