 New game rules

The new game is simple enough and designed in a way that players get many chances to win against the house. Here strategies take a back seat as the game is decided on how the cards are dealt. Dealer and players are dealt four cards. As long as your card total is lower than the dealer, you win. This is referred to as the Skins bet. The ace card is valued at one point, number cards at their values and face cards are valued at 10 points each.

Another way to win here is if the four cards of players add up to 24. Less than 24 points also works. However, it is possible if players place a Front Nine bet where they get to look at two cards and later can assess if they feel their down cards will help them get a total of 24 points or less and accordingly bet a Back Nine. Other option is to surrender the first bet if they feel they may lose. There are many components of the game, which players will get to know once they get to play this new game.


Creators and buyers

The creators of the game, Jeremiah LeClerc and Ben Kowalski have been working at the Meadows Casino from past many years. However, they presented the game to Bally Technologies, a leader in proprietary games and they snapped it up within minutes. As of now the game is awaiting approval from Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board and once that’s done then it will be first offered at Meadows.
