Quick Seven

Published: 22/04/2013

Inspired by Blackjack and Baccarat, Quick Seven is an innovative table game developed by Electracade for access at online casinos like Bet365. It allows the player to select from one to three hands to play directly against the dealer. The object is form a hand that has the value of 7 or as close to 7 as possible.

Play begins by selecting an amount to wager per hand. This is accomplished by first clicking on one of six chip values in the lower right corner of the display: £0.25, £1, £5, £10 or £25. Then, the player makes the bet(s) by clicking on one or more of the three player positions at the table. As soon as the wagers are in place, two control buttons appear at the bottom of the screen—a red “Clear” button to erase the bet(s) and a green “Deal” button to initiate play.

Each active hand receives one card face up initially, and the Dealer receives one card face down. The cards are counted at face value, except for the court cards—Jacks, Queens, Kings and Aces—which all have a value of one. If the first card dealt is greater than seven (i.e., 8~10), it will automatically be discarded. If the first card dealt to a hand is a seven (“Quick Seven”), the player is give the option to “Challenge the Dealer” by doubling up the bet and no more cards will be drawn.

If any other initial card is dealt (i.e., 2~6 or a court card), additional cards will automatically be dealt to the hand until it reaches or exceeds seven points. The dealing will stop and the hand will be held automatically if its value is seven or if a value of seven can be made by discarding one card. Otherwise, the player is given the option of discarding one card to bring the hand’s total to less than seven.

After a discard has been made, the player may choose to stand on whatever value the hand has or to “Hit” and draw another card. If the hand’s value exceeds seven, it is a Bust and the wager is lost. Otherwise, the player many continue to Hit until a satisfactory total is reached or the hand busts.

Once all the player’s hands have been completed, the Dealer’s initial card is turned over. The Dealer will automatically discard any card higher than seven, stand on seven, or draw to any value less than seven. When drawing, the Dealer’s hand will receive cards until the total reaches seven or goes over. If it goes over, one discard will be made to put the total at seven or below. After any discard, including the initial card if higher than seven, the Dealer will draw until the hand reaches a value of five or higher. The Dealer must hit on four or less.

At last, the hands are compared. The player wins if the hand dealt is a Quick Seven, if the hand’s total is greater than Dealer`s total, without exceeding seven, or if the player does not Bust, but Dealer does Bust. In each case, the payout is 1-to-1, even money. If the Challenge Bet is made, the player wins 2-to-1 on the original bet if the Dealer does not have a total of seven, but loses all amounts wagered if the Dealer’s total is seven.

One other wager available in Quick Seven is called the “Hazard” bet. It is available only when the player’s hand goes Bust on the first two cards dealt. In such instances, the player may choose to make an additional wager that the Dealer’s hand will also Bust. This Hazard bet must be made equal to the original wager. It wins 1-to-1, even money, on the total combined bet if the Dealer busts, otherwise both the initial stake and the Hazard bet are lost.
