The real world

The game

TWINS® is a new card game. Bets are placed on various combinations of values and symbols of two cards. The game is played with two decks (à 52 cards), making 104 cards in total, cutting cards and a card shoe.

TWINS® is a very simple and fast table game which offers unique pay-out ratios in the field of traditional card games. As a result of the simplicity of the game and the clarity of its rules and pay-out ratios, TWINS® offers newcomers the perfect introduction. Through its high winnings potential, TWINS® is also very attractive to ambitious regular and experienced players.

The game play

Two decks of 52 cards are shuffled. A cutting card is used to cut the 104 cards in such a way that less than a full deck is used for playing the game. Afterwards, the pack of cards is placed in the card shoe.

Upon the dealer’s request, the guests place their bets on the appropriate fields on the cloth. The dealer then announces that no more bets can be placed. The dealer draws two cards from the card shoe – which act as the bank’s cards – and these are placed on the designated fields and turned over so that everybody can see them. The cards are named by the dealer and he starts paying out.

Note:
If a game with cards chosen from two decks with a cutting card from the card shoe is not wished for, then it is, of course, possible for the game to be played with two decks in a card machine. Twins also can played with 6 or 8 Decks.

TWINS® comes in three variations

The ranking
  • The ranking of the cards is in ascending order: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K, Ace
  • The values of the cards are:
  • from 2 to 10, the values shown on the card.

    J, Q and K (Jack, Queen and King – our TWINS®) each count for 10 points.

    Ace always has a value of 11 points.
The layouts
  • HI / LO:
  • Bets are placed on the first card being higher than the second or vice versa.
  • AMOUNT:
  • Bets are placed on the sum of both cards.
  • TWINS®:
  • Bets are placed on various pair combinations.
The Paytables
  • TWINS® offers you many different ways of placing bets.
  • The minimum and maximum stakes are stated at each table.
HI / LO:
You bet that the first card is higher or lower than the second card (and vice versa). There are four different ways of placing bets: Card 1 HI/LO and Card 2 HI/LO. AMOUNT:
  • 4-12: …the sum of the two cards is between 4 and 12.
  • 13-16: …the sum of the two cards is between 13 and 16.
  • 17-20: …the sum of the two cards is between 17 and 20.
  • 21: …the sum of the two cards is 21.
  • 22: …the sum of the two cards is 22.
The progressive Jackpot: If you place a particular wager on the Jackpot-Field (J,Q or K is possible) and perfect J,Q or K appears, than you‘ll win the progressive Jackpot.

The TWINS®

Here you win when…
  • Ultimate TWINS®: …a particular pair of Jacks, Queens or Kings of the same suit appears.
  • Perfect TWINS®: …a pair of Jacks, Queens or Kings of the same suit appears.
  • Any Perfect TWINS®: …any pair – Jack, Queen or King – of the same suit appears.
  • Any Perfect Pair: …a pair – from 2 to Ace – of the suit appears.
  • Any TWINS®: …any pair of Jacks, Queens or Kings of different suits appears.
  • Any Pair: …a pair – from 2 to Ace – of different suits appears.

The reality of a game sequence is mapped as a model in the Simulation

Mathematics
The calculations regarding the game have been carried out by a number of specialists. Ultimately, the calculations were also performed and verified by a doctor of mathematics from the gaming industry. At the centre stands the probability of the individual outcomes in connection with the numbers of card decks.
Mathematical analyzed for 2,6 and 8 Decks.

Game simulation
Independent of the mathematical calculation, we have modelled various game simulations in which we simulated a very large number of games and, as a result, have been able to prove the mathematical calculation as applied in practice. In the game simulation, it was attempted to model the reality of a sequence of game (the course of the game respectively). The size of the bets, gaming behaviour, probability decisions and gaming strategies were all integrated into the simulation. The simulation “foresees” the outcomes of real game data and is, therefore, an additional verification of the theoretical mathematics.
