Gambling Rules Explained as To a Five-Year-Old


Gambling concept is appealing, no doubt about it, but sometimes the rules can be a bit confusing for specific games. There are many combinations and situations how a match could end, so it’s only reasonable that the rules cover every single outcome of a match. Due to increasing popularity of our favorite gambling games, we’ve decided to explain the rules of some games in simpler terms. If this is what you’ve been looking for then pay close attention, or get a pen, paper and start writing down.


Blackjack Rules

Starting from my favorite game, let’s explain how blackjack is played. It’s quite simple really, all you need to do is build your deck of cards so that it’s as close to 21 as possible. At the start of a match you’ll get two cards, the same as your dealer and the rest of the players. After every turn you’ll get a change to either pass or to “get hit”, by another card that is. Dealer’s cards are hidden except one card that is faced up, this way you’ll get a hint of where he’s at but never the full picture. As you add card, and get closer to 21, so does other players. The goal is to be as close to 21, get 21 and don’t get overboard and go past number 21.

Poker Rules

Depending on which poker we are talking about, poker rules may vary. But the concept is pretty much the same for most of them. As the match starts each player is given two cards, including the dealer. In the first turn, two cards are also places but this time on the table. As the game progresses, other cards are added to the deck and players get the chance to call, increase the wager, or fold. The goal is to get your cards, in combination to any other three on the table, to form a specific combination-either three of a kind, four of a kind, royal flush, etc.


Roulette Rules

Roulette rules might be the easiest ones to remember. The game concept is pretty simple. Before the game stars each player bets against the house, picking either a color, number or range or numbers. At the beginning of the match, players add coins to their bet and the roulette is spun. The ball starts jumping of the roulette surface that’s spinning until the moment it eventually stops. The momentum of the force makes the ball jump a bit longer as it finds a place to land. The winner is a player that correctly speculated the destination where ball finally lands. Congratulations, you’re now eligible to spend your money on roulette!
