    10 cards in each suit = Ace, 2 to 7, Jack, Cavalier, & King

    Neapolitan cards aren't numbered, so you need to count how many of that particular suit are on the cards (2-7)

    .

    You'll find these cards in play at Sky Casino and Betfred (better for you LD )

    .... both have the new Sette e Mezzo table.

    thirdly:

    The face cards (Jack, Cavalier & King) being worth point each in the game ..... hence the goal of scoring 7 (or as near to without busting)

    Ace through to 7 = 1 to 7 points

    ... The King of Coins is a wild card.

    ... It can take the value of ANY card, so long as there’s another card in the hand.

    your aim is to beat the dealer's hand without going over 7 .... anything over is BUST
    Still haven't had a chance to play.

    I assume...

    • regular win pays even money
    • 7+ Jack, Cavalier or King win is your Blackjack equivalent and pays 3:2

    What is the lowest value the dealer must draw another card on?
    'coz good old fashioned real random beats simulated random any day

    The actual draw process of cards is also a little different than on blackjack, but to answer your questions,

    What is the lowest value the dealer must draw another card on?
    less than 5


    i.e the dealer stands on 5 or more


    > you lose if you Tie on 5

    so there’s no point Standing on 5 when his first card (you both receive 1 card initially at the start) is 5 .... & you are automatically then given another card.

    No, not correct

    Sette e Mezzo Royal pays 3:2

    a two-card combination including the King of Coins card

    regular win pays even money
    Yes, correct (1:1)

    TBH I was expecting some reaction to,

    Sette e Mezzo Royal pays 3:2

    a two-card combination including the King of Coins card
    along the lines of not so likely as a Blackjack then.




    Wait though, to explain the gameplay in more detail:


    - The game is played as a one-to-many deal table.

    - 1 deck of 40 cards in the shoe.

    - Shuffled after every round.

    - No burn card at the start & no cutting card.





    At the start of the game you basically have 2 chances to be dealt a King of Coins card. Your first card, and then your second card - if you elect to take another / are given another card automatically (more details later).

    Assuming you always take a second card, basic maths gives a probability of just over 5% chance each round of a Sette e Mezzo Royal.



    > In reality it will be less often because in you're not going to hit on 7



    • and you might be pleasantly surprised by the RTP rate, but I'll save that for later also!

    because in you're not going to hit on 7
    So really, the only way you are ever going to get Sette e Mezzo Royal is if your hand begins with a King of Coins (1/40), then you have to land the 7 (1/10).

    Seems a much tougher route to a 3:2 payout than Blackjack, with 8 Aces and 32 ten/pictures floating around in the shoe.
