Terms and Conditions

2016 – The JR Beat the Dealer Mobile Application

Official Rules



Nature of Mobile Application:   Entrants earn free chips to play one game per chip. See Rules below.  Dealer and Entrant each receive five cards face down.  After dealer reveals one of his cards, entrant taps on one card to turn it over.  If his card ties or beats the dealer’s card, the game continues.   If all 5 of the entrant’s cards are higher than the dealer’s turned cards, entrant wins the posted daily prize of varying value (“The Daily Deal”). Consolation prizes also are available when the entrant wins the first four card turns, but misses the fifth.  See complete rules below.

3, HOW TO PLAY JR BEAT THE DEALER: One chip is needed to play. From the “Play Now” introduction screen with 5 face-down cards to play, the Dealer selects 1 card to turn face up as the player chooses one card also. If the card the player selects ties or is higher than the dealer’s, the player will turn another card face up to match the dealer’s card. The game continues as long as player’s cards beat dealer’s cards. If player wins (all five cards tie or beat the dealer’s five cards), the player wins the posted Daily Deal. However if a player wins the first 4 cards in a row and loses the last card, a consolation prize is awarded. If any of the first four cards turned face up by the player loses to one of the dealer’s cards, that game is over. Player can start a new game with another chip.


4. PRIZES and ODDS OF WINNING:  Each winner will receive the “Daily Deal” prize that has been posted within the app for that day. Value of the Daily Deal may vary from day to day. The value of the daily prize, which can be purchased to receive 20 chips, will vary. The consolation prize will be a coupon code to be redeemed toward purchases at, but cannot be used to purchase the Daily Deal. JR reserves the right to substitute the consolation prize of equal or greater value. All participants will be verified as to legal age to purchase cigars upon first usage. If any winner resides in a location that does not allow cigars or cigar products to be given as prizes or gifts, Sponsor will provide winner with a coupon code for the value of the prize not exceeding $50. A winner that wins one or more cigars will have to pay a $1 fee to receive the prize in order for the promotion to comply with federal law.


The computer can control the number of potentially winning hands to be played, but the odds can also be affected by the order in which the player turns cards face up, i.e., one player could lose a game with the same five cards that another player can use to win. Odds of winning are at least 1 in 5,000 games. Approximate retail value (ARV) of all prizes is approximately $150,000.00. The actual final value will vary based on the number of Daily Deal winners and consolation prize winners. Each prize is non-transferable and no cash equivalent or substitution of prizes is offered. Any winner who cannot be located, or fails to establish eligibility under these rules, or fails to comply with these requirements for any reason, shall forfeit his rights to a prize.
