Whether it is played in a land-based casino or in an online casino, the basic rules are the same. The game uses between one and eight decks of cards that are shuffled together several times, depending on the casino policy.
The game table is crescent-shaped and has five, six, or seven free seats that can be occupied by the participants in the game. There is the possibility that when all the seats are filled, a maximum of two players who do not sit at the table can bet on the hand of a participant in the game.
Still, the decisions made in the game belong to the player at the table only.
