The legendary King Arthur brandished a magic sword, Excalibur, from
which we take our company name. With this unique weapon in his hands,
he could not be vanquished.
Although Excalibur Electronics can’t claimthe magical secrets of Merlin,
King Arthur’s court wizard, sometimes our patented technology may
make it seem as if we could. The Casino Calculator is another unmatched
innovation of Excalibur Electronics.
We make you think.
Installing the Batteries
Your Casino Calculator uses two AA batteries (not
included). To install the batteries, carefully turn the
game over so the top side is face-down on a soft surface. Use a small Phillips screwdriver to remove the
screw. Lift off the battery compartment lid. Install the batteries,
making sure to match the polarity
(+ and -) inside the battery compartment (see diagram). Place the
tab of the battery compartment lid in its slots and
close the compartment door. Replace the screw and
tighten gently.

After selecting the game, press START DEAL once to
continue the game.
No matter which game you select, you start off with
a bankroll of $2,000. To determine the amount of
your bet, press the BET keys until the amount you
want to bet is displayed. (After the first hand of any
game, you can repeat the amount of your initial bet
by pressing BET.) After each hand or spin, the
amount you have won or lost is briefly displayed.
Then your new total is displayed.
Starting the Game
Whatever the game, press START DEAL. If you are
playing Blackjack, Draw Poker, Baccarat or Deuces
Wild, Casino Calculator will begin dealing the hand. If
you are playing Slot Machine, your Casino Calculator
will “spin” the reels.

For the specific playing rules of each game, see sections below.
The game of 21, or Blackjack, has become the most
popular casino card game.

as possible, without exceeding
21. The Ace is worth 11 points
unless this amount takes a hand
over 21, in which case the Ace
counts as 1. All other cards
count for their face value. You
compete only against the dealer.
How to Play
Just like a professional dealer, Casino Calculator will
deal you two cards and deal himself two cards, only
one of which you can see. You must then decide
whether to press STAND to draw no more cards, or
to press DEAL to take another card. Remember, if
you go over 21, you automatically lose! When you’ve
decided to stand, Casino Calculator finishes its hand.
If your final count is closer to 21 than Casino
Calculator’s count, while not exceeding 21, you win
an amount equal to your bet, and get your betting
money as well. If you hit a blackjack, you win twice
the amount of your bet. If your count is the same as
Casino Calculator’s, it’s a tie (or push) and nobody
wins, and you keep the money you’ve bet. If your
In Blackjack, you must decide whether to “stand”
(draw no more cards) or “hit” (receive another card
by pressing DEAL) until you feel that the total count of
your hand is closer to 21, without going over that
number, than the cards the dealer will draw.
Buying Insurance
Insurance is a protection side bet for the player and
pays 2-to-1. When a dealer has an ace showing, the
word “INSURANCE” will flash. At this point, you
have the option or each player has the option to take
insurance by placing up to half of his bet in the insurance square. This means you’re betting that the dealer has 21. (The bet gets its name from the idea that
the player is buying insurance against the dealer
having blackjack.) If a dealer has 21, you win the
insurance bet. You lose this side bet if he doesn’t.
(Tip: Professional Blackjack players consider buying insurance a bad strategy.)
Draw poker is one of the most
popular card games in the
The object of poker is to assemble a hand that is a pair of Jacks
or better.
How to Play
Casino Calculator will deal you five cards, showing
both the number (or, in the case of face cards, a letter) and the suit of each card. Above and to the left
of your hand, the words “DRAW or HOLD” are displayed. You have the option of replacing from one to
all five cards. Mark any cards you want to keep (for
example, any two of a kind) by pushing the HOLD key
that corresponds to the card or cards. HOLD 1 keeps
The hierarchy of winning poker hands, from best to
worst, and their payoffs, are given on page 9.
Deuces Wild is played the same as draw poker, but
the four 2’s (deuces) in the deck can be substituted
for any other card, for any rank, in any suit. For
example, a deuce of spades could be used as the fifth
card to complete a straight flush in hearts. In Deuces
Wild, you should never discard a deuce.
