Game Rules

Genie's Hi-Lo

Higher? Lower?Red? Black?

Genie’s Hi-Lo is an easy-to-play casino card game. The aim is to guess the value of the next drawn card from a deck. You can bet on whether it will be higher or lower, red or black, or a combination of both. This traditional casino games should be a big hit with fans of online blackjack and poker!

  • Use the +/- buttons to set the bet per round.
  • Press Confirm when you have set the bet to the desired amount.
  • Pick one of the cards from the Genie’s hand by clicking on it. Alternatively, press Autopick to have a card selected at random.

Once the card is revealed, you will be given the following betting options:

  • Higher – bet that the next card will have a higher value.
  • Lower – bet that the next card with have a lower value.
  • Red – bet that the next card will be red (Diamonds or Hearts).
  • Black – bet that the next card will be black (Spades or Clubs).

Note: It is possible to combine one of the first two options with one of the second two options. This will increase the potential payout.

Note: Payouts are based on probability. Thus, for example, betting that the next card will be lower than a Queen will have a lower payout than betting that it will be higher.

As you choose your bets, the potential payout will be shown on screen. Press Confirm when you have made your bet selections.

The deck will be shuffled and you will be prompted to choose the next card from Genie’s hand. Once again, you can select the Autopick option to have a hand randomly selected for you.

If you are successful, you can keep increasing your winnings and move up the pay-scale on the left of the screen. This also acts as a game record, showing how your initial stake has increased through the rounds. If you reach the top of the scale, your winnings will be automatically banked.
