GAMING RULES

GAMING RULES

Quebec vs. America

In Quebec, there are some rules that depart from what gamblers are used to in American casinos. While there are cocktail lounges in the vicinity of the casino, alcoholic beverages are not permitted at the gaming tables or at the slot machines, nor are patrons allowed to tip the dealers. No credit is given in Quebec casinos. In roulette, both single-zero and double-zero games are offered (single-zero is better for the player). And in roulette, so-called "outside" wagers (red or black, and odd or even) require much higher minimum bets than "inside" wagers (such as a single number). For instance, at a $5 roulette wheel, the minimum wager on "inside" bets is $5, but an outside bet requires a $50 wager. The dealers conduct the games in French, but all are bilingual and speak English to assist customers. And face cards have different letter designations on the corners; kings have an R (roi), queens a D (dame) and jacks a V (valet).
