The 7 e mezzo game uses the Neapolitan playing card suits. The cards are divided into Denari (Coins), Coppe (Cups), Spade (Swords) and Bastoni (Clubs).
The objective of 7 e mezzo is to get a hand worth 7½, or closer to 7½ than the dealer's hand without exceeding 7½.
- One 40-card deck is used (a standard deck of cards with the 8s, 9s and 10s removed). After each round, used cards are returned to the deck and the deck is shuffled.
- The cards are divided into Denari (Coins), Coppe (Cups), Spade (Swords) and Bastoni (Clubs).
- The cards A, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 are worth their face value (Ace = 1).
- The cards J, Q, K are worth ½, except for the King of Denari.
- The King of Denari is a wild card that can count as the value of any other card.
- A hand’s value is the total of the value of the cards in the hand. If the hand’s value exceeds 7½, then the hand has “busted”.
- You and the dealer are each dealt one card, face down.
- You look at your down-card. If your down-card is a J, Q, or K (including the King of Denari), then one more card will be automatically drawn to you. Otherwise, you can choose to hit or stand. You may continue to hit until your total is 7½ or over (you have “busted”) or until you choose to stand.
- After your hand is resolved, the dealer turns over their down-card and plays their hand as follows:
- If you have busted, then the hand is over, and the dealer does not draw. Otherwise, the dealer draws cards as described below.
- The dealer must hit if their first card is a J, Q, or K (including the King of Denari).
- If your total is less than 7½, then the dealer must hit until their total is 3 or greater. The dealer stands on a total of 3 or greater.
- If your total is 7½, then the dealer must hit until their total is 7½ or greater.
- After the dealer stops drawing cards, your final hand and dealer’s final hand are compared, and the round is resolved according to the paytable below:
Player has two cards 7½ with King of Denari
Player hand value > 7½ (player busts)
Dealer hand value > 7½ (dealer busts)
Player hand value < dealer hand value
Player hand value = dealer hand value
Player hand value > dealer hand value
