SABONG CARDS


Sabong Cards is a fun and easy card game unique to Solaire.
Here, players wager on whether the winning card appears is the MERON or WALA.
 

HOW TO PLAY

  1. Prior to the cards being dealt, players are given the opportunity to participate in the game by placing bets on any of the following betting areas:
    • Main bets are labeled MERON and WALA – players can bet on whether the higher card appears in MERON or WALA (PAID EVEN MONEY). 
    • Suits – players can bet on whether the winning card is a Spade, Diamond, Hearts, or Clubs (PAID 3 TO 1)
    • Pair/Perfect Pair – players can bet on whether the cards dealt form a Pair. (same cards, different suits – 10 to 1) or Perfect Pair (same card, same suit - 50 TO 1) 
  2. If a player’s bet on Suit wager and Pairs meet the table minimum, then the Dealer can proceed and deal the hand even without main wagers.
  3. Two cards are then dealt on the table face up, one representing WALA and one representing MERON. The higher ranked card wins!
  4. Cards are ranked according to the following:
    • Ranking by Cards – From highest to lowest (King to Ace)
      • (Example: If WALA is dealt a King and MERON is dealt an Ace, then WALA wins, because King beats Ace in ranking) 
    • Ranking by Suits – From highest to lowest (Spade, Heart, Clubs, Diamond) 
  5. In case MERON or WALA wins, Main and Suits wagers win (depending on card ranking), while Pair and Perfect Pair wagers lose.
  6. In the event that MERON and WALA hold the same value card the winner will be determined by the suit ranking. In this case, Perfect pair wagers lose. Suits wagers are a push. (NEITHER WIN NOR LOSE)
  7. In case of a Perfect Pair (same card, same suit), all Main and Suits wagers lose, while Pair and Perfect Pair wagers win.
