Distribution of cards
The 12BET game CEME is played by 2 to 8 players (black chairs). One player will take on the role as the dealer (red chair). The game will not start until a player assumes the role of the dealer.
Looking at your card
Once a player is given two cards, then the player is given a chance to peep at the cards they get. When the time is up to take a look at your cards, you must show your cards at the table.
After both player and dealer have shown their cards on the table, the values of the cards can be tallied. Higher values win in this game, so the player with 7 wins it.
Refer to the explanation below for a deeper analysis:
How to Calculate CEME Card Winner(s)
To know which player wins the game, you have to count the total dots on the left and right cards. The winner is the player with the highest number of dots on each card.
Remember that the highest value in the game is 9. If the result exceeds 10, 20, or 30, then the second number of the two digits is the value that is considered. Refer to the image below on how to count the value:
0 + 4 = 4 8 + 2 = 10 6 + 6 = 12 10 + 11 + 12
Result = 4 Result = 0 Result = 2 Result = 1
Determining the winner(s)
In CEME. The winner is the player who has the cards with the highest value. Refer to the example below for a more detailed explanation. In this example, the player is marked blue and the dealer is marked with a red square:
If the value of the player’s card is greater than that of the dealer’s, then the dealer awards the player the amount of his or her bets.
If the value of the dealer’s card is greater than that of the player’s, then the dealer takes the player’s bet.
Tie – Dealer Wins
Dealers always win if the dealer and the player gets cards of the same value.
Q Card – Player Wins
In this game, a Q card is a card with the value of 9. If the player gets a card of this value, then the dealer has to pay double the amount the player wagered.
Q Card – Dealer Win
If it is the dealer who gets awarded the Q card, then the dealer receives all wagers that a player has bet, even if the player has the highest number.
Special Cards for Jackpot
There are special cards in CEME and these helps a player get the Jackpot. Since there are 4 cards in a special combination, the winning cards need to be the dealer’s and the player’s cards combined.
If you are the dealer and you want to receive the Jackpot, you have to buy the jackpot from each player on the table (including yourself). This gives you more chances to receive more than one Jackpot.
If you’re not the dealer, then you’re only eligible for your personal Jackpot.
Note: if the combined cards between player and dealer are one of these special cards below, then the Jackpot will be awarded to the player (or dealer) who bought the Jackpot for that round.
