The object of the chemin de fer game is to accumulate cards with point totals as close to 21 without going over twenty one. Deal with cards (Jacks, Queens and Kings) are worth ten points. Aces are worth one or eleven, whichever is preferable. Other cards are represented by their number.

If a gambler and the House tie, it is termed a "push" and no one wins. Ace and 10 (Black jack) on the initial two cards dealt is an automatic player earn at one point five to one, unless the house ties. A gambler may stand at any time.
