The tooltips will disappear after a brief period or if the player taps the main game interface.

- To see the available chip values, tap the ‘up’ and ‘down’ arrow buttons located to the top and bottom of the chip selector respectively to cycle up or down the values, until the minimum or maximum chip value is reached.
Placing a Bet
- Once a chip value has been selected, tapping either the ‘ANTE’ or ‘PAIRS UP’ lozenges located in the betting area at the bottom of the bet cloth will place a chip of the selected value for that bet.
- Each additional tap will add one unit of the selected chip value to that bet, it is also possible to mix chip values on the same bet.
- The stake value for each bet is displayed in a tooltip located centrally beneath each bet.
- The total stake value for all bets placed is displayed in the ‘Stake’ field located bottom right of the game interface.
- If there are no chips placed in the betting area, the relevant bet lozenge will glow to indicate to the player where chips can be placed.
- The player must have sufficient balance to match the ‘ANTE’ stake when the game is in play.
- When a chip has been placed, the ‘Clear’, ‘Undo’, ‘Double’ and ‘Deal’ buttons (‘initial buttons’) become active in the button interface to the right of the game interface.
- Tapping the 'Clear' button, removes all chips placed.
- Tapping the 'Undo' button, removes the last chip placed. Tapping again will remove the next chip, and so on until all placed chips have been removed.
