  • Before you are dealt your cards you will need to decide on the amount you want to bet.
  • You can change your bet whenever the change bet button is active.
  • The goal of Blackjack is to get as close to 21 as possible, without going over.
  • All face cards (King, Queen, and Jack) count as ten. Aces can count as either eleven or one.
  • Once you have been dealt your hand you will be given several options.
  • You can choose to hit and receive another card. Remember to be careful when you are close to 21. If you exceed 21 you will bust.
  • You can choose to stand, and not receive any additional cards.
  • Before choosing to hit or stand, you can also choose to double your bet. One more card will be dealt to you.
  • If you have been dealt a pair of cards, you can choose to split. Splitting allows you to play two hands at the same time.
  • Your hand will be compared to the dealer’s hand, as well as the hands of other players at the table. The person with the hand closet to 21 (or at 21) will win the hand and the chips in play.

Word Ace

Big Fish Casino

  • First, a quick tip. If you cannot find Word Ace on your screen, make sure you have collected your bonus coins. The Word Ace icon is hiding under the coin bonus button in several versions of the game.
  • Word Ace is a word poker game that is similar to Texas Hold’Em. Instead of trying to get the best hand of poker, you are trying to spell the highest scoring word possible.
  • Betting is exactly the same as in Texas Hold’Em.

Big Fish Casino

  • At the bottom of your screen you will notice seven circles. This is the word creating interface. The longer the word the more points you can earn.
  • Using your two hole cards, and the cards from the community cards, try and create the longest word you can, so that you reach the last three circles. These circles will add points to your score.
  • To move letters, click and drag them to arrange them as you like.
  • You can also mix the letters around or clear them and start over.
  • Once you are happy with your word, click on “use this word” to accept it.
  • The player with the highest scoring word will win all the chips in play.


  • Roulette is a game of chance and luck.

Big Fish Casino

  • Place your bets on the table and then wait for the wheel to spin. If the ball stops on a number you bet on, you win. The amount you win will depend on how much you bet, as well as the combination of bets you placed.
  • To place a bet, click and drag chips onto the board. The spot(s) you are betting on will highlight.
  • After placing a bet, you can choose to replay the same bet on the next spin.
  • Once you are finished placing bets, click the finished button and wait for the wheel to spin.

Video Poker
