Play is as follows:
1.) Player places a bet
a. Bet is on one of three choice
i. "Player" will win
ii. "Banker" will win
iii. Tie between the "Player" and the "Banker"
2.) Cards are dealt face up
a. "Player" gets the first card and prints out suit and value, e.g., 2 of spades, or queen of clubs
b. "Banker" gets the second etc. "Player" gets the third etc.
c. "Banker" gets the fourth.
d. This ends the dealing of the cards for the round.
3.) Scores are calculated
a. Number cards are their numerical value
b. Face cards have no value
c. Aces are counted as 1
d. If the total is over 10, then divide the total by 10 (hint: use the MOD() function).
i. Example - 16 -> 6 ; 12 -> 2
4.) The higher score wins
5.) The player then receives their winnings at a 1:1 ratio. Thus if the player bet $10 they receive $20 (the original $10 bet plus $10 in winnings).
That's all there is to playing NCSU Bac.
Your program must do the following:
1.) Ask for the player's name
2.) Generate a file with the following information (the order of the information in the file is up to you):
a. Round Number
b. How much money the player has
c. Amount the player bet
d. Who did the player bet on?
e. "Player's" hand value
f. "Banker's" hand value
g. Which hand won? "Player" or "Banker"
h. How much did the player win
i. Sum of amount the player has won to this point
3.) Thus a sample of some of these values would be :
Hand # amt bet players value bankers value amt remaining
1 5 6 7 x-5
The game is quite simple, and played with a standard 52 count card deck. There are no jokers used. You will also have a standard starting amount of $1000.00 for the player to use during the game.
2 6 2 0 x+6
4. Your model and algorithm should also have a means to end the game. This could be done several ways which must include when the player has no more money, and then whatever else you decide such as after 50 rounds or when the player has won double his starting amount.
Also, be sure to present the ending information to the user at the start of the game.
To do this program successfully you will need to call random numbers from the system, and understand how to model a card deck. Dr. Rodman's lecture notes on the subject should be used.
