RENO, Nev. -- Atlantis Casino Resort enhanced its casino game
options with the addition of Beat the Dealer.
The game, which also is referred to as Over 21, received
approval for game play by the Mississippi Gaming Commission, and
Atlantis is previewing the game for the Nevada Gaming Commission
until the end of April.
The game is expected to be approved by the middle of June,
according to an Atlantis spokesman.
The innovative game is played on a layout similar to that for
blackjack, but the rules are different.
The game is dealt from a six-deck shoe that has 12 jokers. Aces
and jokers have a card value of 11.
Players are dealt a total of five cards, and to win, they must
have a hand with a total count over 21 and a total count greater
than the dealer's hand.
Each player with a winning hand wins even money on an initial
bet and double-down bet. A player holding a hand of 33 wins double
the bet plus $25, and a player with a hand of three jokers wins
triple the bet plus $250.
The new game carries a $3 minimum and a $200 maximum bet.
Atlantis is a full-service casino resort featuring luxury
accommodations, including Jacuzzi suites with views of the Sierra
Nevada Mountains or downtown Reno; world-class casino gaming; live
entertainment; an array of dining options; a nightclub, and a
health club and spa.
