How to play the Casino games.

 

So you are planning to attend the Million Metres for Melanoma  1920's Casino Fun Night. You are here because you have no idea what it is about.

Don't worry, you are with 95% of Australia. Fun Casino events were relatively unheard of in Australia until recently. Given that so little is known about what we do, here are some instructions on how to play the games and also how our fun casino nights work.

On arrival, you (the guest) will be given some fun money by the host of your event. When the casino tables open, it is just like a real casino except there is no real money to lose. You take your $500 Fun Money note to any of the Casino tables to be changed for chips. You can then play at any of the tables for the duration of the event. If you run out of fun money but want to keep on playing, you can purchase another note for a small donation.

At the end of the casino, we ask all participants to return their chips to the tables.

We count the value of the chips held by each player and a trophy is awarded to the ‘High Roller’, the player that has the most money at the end of the evening.

 

If you are not sure how to play the games, our friendly croupiers can give you a brief lesson. But if you want to get a head start on your competition for the trophy, please read below.

The Money Wheel is also sometimes referred to as the Big Wheel, Chocolate Wheel or Big Six. It is a simple game where you bet on which segment of the wheel will stop at the top.

Craps:

Craps table

Craps (sometimes just referred to as “Dice”) can appear to be a very confusing and intimidating game for the first timer.  With over a 100 betting combinations and croupiers who appear to speak a different language when dealing this game, it is no wonder that many people at a casino prefer the simpler games.  Craps can be a fun and exciting game with the players rolling the dice to determine the outcome.

Poker:

Poker is a game played against other players with the dealer facilitating the game but not participating. The game most commonly played at Fun casino events is "Texa Hold'em Poker" which is also played in many pubs and clubs. Please click on the above image to learn how to play in detail.

 

Sic Bo:
