Niu Niu (or Gnau / Ngau / Ngao) is a very popular Asian game played with standard 52-card deck. The objective of the game is to have a hand higher than the dealer. All cards are face value with King the highest rank. However, Kings, Queens and Jacks count as 10 value. Cards totaling ten or higher, are given the value of the last number, this makes ‘0’ the highest, followed by 9 and so on. The player first tries to identify 3 of the 5 cards that sum up to a multiple of 10 i.e. 10 or 20 or 30. If this is possible, the remaining 2 cards become the highest hand total. If not, the highest single card out of the 5 cards is the highest hand total. If the player's cards and dealer's cards are the same point value, the highest suit of the highest card shall determine the winner i.e.
Spade ♠ is the 1st, Heart ♥ is 2nd, Club ♣ is 3rd and Diamond ♦ is the lowest rank suite.
Players may wager on Equal, or Double, or Super Niu Niu.
