A player selects a chip by clicking on it and then clicking on the bet area to increase the bet by the chip amount. Each click on the bet area raises the bet while every right-click reduces the players’ bet.

There are two types of bet areas – The normal bet and the  Super Match’ bet. The Normal bet area is any of the 2 areas that are larger; Super Match’ bet area on the other hand is the small area. It should be remembered that by clicking the normal bet area, one actually places two bets that are identical – one for each hand.

After have placing the bets, the Deal button should be clicked. Other buttons such as the Hit, Double, stand, Split, switch and Insurance should be used as required.
