New rules in UK

The U.K. Gambling Commission has published new rules for some casino games. In craps, multiple odds bets are now allowed. In electronic versions of blackjack, players may now be dealt identical cards if the version of the game so requires. In Let It Ride, the dealer may now discard either the top or bottom card of his first three cards. In punto banco, the Dragon Bonus side wager now pays odds on any winning hand with a third card. And finally, operators may now restrict the longest odds offered on Ultimate Texas Hold’em poker and pai gow poker with Fortune Side Bet, as long as players are made aware of the change.
