Twist'em Dominoes

Also known as Double-Hand Dominoes. This is a gambling domino game, designed to be played as a casino table game by the US casino consultancy company, Olympian Gaming. It is a variation on the Chinese domino game Pai Gow, played with a Western Double-Six domino set instead and chips or cash for wagering. It can be played by up to eight players and a dealer, and the rules and the game can be learnt and played very quickly.

Play:

A player is chosen as the banker or the House acts as the permanent bank. The dealer shuffles the dominoes, facedown, and then deals himself and the players three tiles each. Each player then looks at their tiles and makes two hands by arranging the tiles side by side and reading the three spotted suits across them on either ends of the tiles so they have both a top and bottom hand. The top and bottom hands are formed as a pip total of the three values with the multiples of ten not included. So a pip total of 18 would count as an 8, and a pip total of 6 would count as just 6. Players may turn the tiles end to end to decide which suit values count towards either their top or bottom hand (which is where the name Twist'em is derived from). The top hand should be the highest total of the two and the bottom hand should be the lowest.

Once the players have made their two hands, they place their three tiles, facedown, in front of themselves. The dealer then turns his tiles face-up and makes his top and bottom hands. Players in turn, turn their tiles face-up and each player then wins or loses according to the following rules:

  • If both the player's hands beat both the dealer's, or one of their hands beats the dealer's and the other is equal, then the player wins, and receives his stake back plus an equal amount from the banker (evens).

  • If only one of the player's hands beats the banker's and the other loses, then it is a push, and the player takes his stake back with neither the player or the banker winning.

  • If both the dealer's hands beat both the player's, then the dealer collects the player's wager.

  • If both the player's hands are equal to the banker's, then the dealer has the advantage and collects the player's wager.

Players may also make some additional bets, as follows:

If a player places a wager on "Lucky Nines", then the player wins in the following circumstances:

  • If the player and the dealer hold 4 tiles between them each bearing a total of 9 pips, then the player wins and is paid at odds of 50 to 1.

  • If the player and the dealer hold 3 tiles between them each bearing a total of 9 pips, then the player wins and is paid at odds of 5 to 1.

  • If the player and the dealer hold 2 tiles between them each bearing a total of 9 pips, then the player wins and is paid at odds of 2 to 1.

If a player places a bet on "Double Doubles", then the player wins in the following circumstances:

  • If the player and the dealer hold 6 double tiles between them, then the player wins and is paid at odds of 2,500 to 1.

  • If the player and the dealer hold 5 double tiles between them, then the player wins and is paid at odds of 100 to 1.

  • If the player and the dealer hold 4 double tiles between them, then the player wins and is paid at odds of 5 to 1.

  • If the player and the dealer hold 3 double tiles between them, then the player wins and is paid at odds of 2 to 1.
