  3. Then, the sections are all turned over by the banker to reveal the bottom card.
  4. Finally, the cards that have a lower denomination than the banker's card will lose their bets to the dealer. Cards that have a higher denomination than the dealers' are paid 1 to 1.

  2. The bets may be placed either before the cut or after the cut.
  3. The number of sections depends on the variation. The dealer may cut two sections for the players and one for himself. In this variation the players bet on either or both of the player sections. The dealer may choose to cut sections for all players, up to seven, and one for himself. Or, the dealer can vary the amount of sections from hand to hand and the players bet however they like.
  4. When the banker's denomination equals one that the player bet on then either the banker wins or the player's bet will be returned.
  5. Change of banker depends on the variation. It can pass one player to the left after each game, or it can be cut for after each game.
