As you start the game you have to choose a table, that is you can select the minimum and maximum betting limits.
Once you have made your choice you are asked to ANTE. That means you have to place your bet. You can do that by clicking on one of the chips or by clicking on the ANTE marking in the spot from the middle. You can not bet more or less then the limits you set at the beginning of the game.
You will be prompted if the value exceeds the maximum. If you want to remove any of the chips press the SHIFT key on your keyboard and click on the chips on the table. As soon as you put a chip on the table two buttons will be shown. Push DEAL to have your cards and the bankers cards dealt. Also if you change your mind you can push the CLEAR button. Both you and the bank get 5 cards each.
You are shown your cards and the first card of the banker.
The next step is again to make a choice. You have two options: RAISE your bet by doubling it, or FOLD. If you fold you lose your ante. If you raise then the cards of the the banker are displayed. Depending on the outcome you win or lose.
Yet there are more things to be considered.
The bank should have at least the A-K cards or better, otherwise your bet returns to you plus you win the equal of your ante. But if the bank does have at least the A-K or better you win only if you have a higher hand than that of the banker's.
