Abstract

A method of implementing a side wager in a casino game such as blackjack using community cards. Community cards can be dealt to use with a player's hand in order to form a poker hand. Depending on the player's poker hand, the side wager is either won or lost.

Description

    CROSS REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS
  • This application is a continuation-in-part of application Ser. No. 10/604,658, which is incorporated by reference herein in its entirety.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • 1. Field of the Invention
  • The present invention is directed to a method and computer readable storage medium for implementing a casino blackjack type game.
  • 2. Description of the Related Art
  • Casino blackjack games (both table and machine) are a popular form of wagering in a casino. Casinos are always introducing new variations on their floor in order to entice players with new variations.
  • What is needed is a new variation of blackjack side bet which may be more exciting for players and profitable for the casino.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • It is an aspect of the present invention to provide players a wagering game which can augment a standard game of blackjack and be new and exciting for players.
  • The above aspects can be obtained by a method that includes (a) receiving a main wager and a side wager from the player; (b) dealing a player's two cards and a dealer's two cards; (c) dealing community card(s); (d) forming a poker hand with the player's two cards and the community card(s); (e) determining a rank of the poker hand; (f) if the rank is a winning poker hand, then paying a payout on the side wager based on the rank, or if the rank is a losing poker hand, then taking the side wager; and (g) completing the blackjack game.
  • These together with other aspects and advantages which will be subsequently apparent, reside in the details of construction and operation as more fully hereinafter described and claimed, reference being had to the accompanying drawings forming a part hereof, wherein like numerals refer to like parts throughout.
  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
  • Further features and advantages of the present invention, as well as the structure and operation of various embodiments of the present invention, will become apparent and more readily appreciated from the following description of the preferred embodiments, taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings of which:
  • FIG. 1 is a flowchart illustrating an exemplary method of implementing a side wager, according to an embodiment; and
  • FIG. 2 is a diagram illustrating an exemplary table layout to implement a side wager, according to an embodiment.
  • DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS
  • Reference will now be made in detail to the presently preferred embodiments of the invention, examples of which are illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein like reference numerals refer to like elements throughout.
  • The present general inventive concept relates to a
  • FIG. 1 is a flowchart illustrating an exemplary method of implementing a side wager, according to an embodiment.
  • The method can start with operation 100, wherein a player(s) can place bets which can include a main bet and a mandatory or optional side bet.
  • From operation 100, the method can proceed to operation 102, wherein the dealer deals initial hands of blackjack. The initial hands typically comprise two cards for each player and two cards for the dealer. Typically, one dealer's card is dealt face up and one dealer's card is dealt face down. The player's cards can be dealt face up or face down. Alternatively, the dealer can be dealt only one card (face up) and the dealer's second card can be drawn at a later time (such as when all of the players have finished playing out their hands).
  • From operation 102, the method can proceed to operation 104, wherein the dealer deals community cards. Any number of community cards can be dealt, such as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, or higher. The community cards can be dealt from the same deck as the blackjack game is being dealt or from a separate deck.
  • From operation 104, the method can proceed to operation 106, which resolves the side bet. The side bet can be resolved by making a poker hand using either or both of the player's two cards and the community cards. Once the poker hand is made, then a side bet wager can be paid or taken depending on the poker hand.
  • From operation 106, the method can proceed to operation 108, which continues the game normally.
  • It is noted that the operations in FIG. 1 can be performed in any sensible order. For example, the side bet can be resolved after the main bet is resolved. The community cards can be dealt at any time, for example before the players and dealers cards are dealt or after the players and dealers cards are dealt. The community cards can also be dealt after the blackjack game has been resolved (e.g. the player's have played out their hand and the dealer has played out his hand). The latter embodiment may be preferred by players who may not wish cards being dealt during the game which may “disrupt” the natural flow of cards to the game.
  • FIG. 2 is a diagram illustrating an exemplary table layout to implement a side wager, according to an embodiment.
  • A player's initial hand 502 comprises two initial cards. A dealer's initial hand 500 comprises two initial cards. A blackjack betting circle 504 can be used to place a wager for blackjack. A side bet betting circle 506 can be used to place a wager for the optional side bet. The community card(s) 508 are also on the table. The community card(s) 508 can be dealt anywhere on the table.
