Only single digit card values are counted in Fun88. This means that a 10, Jack, Queen, or King are counted as zero and have no value. An Ace on the other hand is given the value of 1. If the sum of the cards dealt are greater than ten the value of the cards is subtracted by 10 until a single digit number is reduced.
This means that a 10 and a 6 will have the collective value in Fun88 of 6. While a hand that includes an Ace and a Jack will have the collective value of 1. The valuation of cards is probably the most difficult of Fun88 rules to master but the most important when it comes to playing for keeps.
When it comes to the game of Fun88 rules are different than one might expect. There isn't really a long list of rules like those you will find for other casino games. The most important rule for playing Fun88 of course is that you should play this game for the fun of playing and a love of chance. This is a game that is largely about chance after all.
Initially you and the bank are dealt two cards each. You may opt to take a third card under certain circumstances that fall under the third card rule. According to the third card rule, if you, the player, opt not to draw the third card the bank must draw if their total is 5 or less and stand at 6 or more. It gets a little more complicated on the part of the bank if you choose to draw.
Two hands are dealt one for the Banker and one for the Player. Before the deal, the player wagers on whether the Player's hand or the Banker's hand is closest to the total of 9. The player also has the option to wager on a tie i.e. both hands are of the same value.
Fun88 is a Fun88 that is dealt from a shoe that holds 6 or 8 decks. Before the hands are dealt, bets may be placed.
Once bets have been placed, the banker hand and the player hand are dealt according to fixed rules, giving final hands of either two or three cards for each.
The value of a hand is determined by adding the values of its cards to get a total. Tens and face cards are counted as zero, while all other cards are counted by the number of "pips" on the card face.
Only the last digit of the total is used, so all Fun88 hands have values in the range 0 to 9 inclusive. The hand with the higher value wins; if the hands have the same value, the result is of course a tie.
