    Help with terminology

    Hi! I was wondering if anyone could help me with some Russian Casino Terminology. If I were to go to a Casino in Russia, what words would be on the machines? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Re: Help with terminology

    There is only one label 'Insert coin'.

    Thank you for the replies. What would "insert coin" and "Jackpot" be in Russian? Also, how would you say "bet", "play", "spin" in Russian.

    I bet you didn't get that humour. Sorry, my bad.
    Actually, there are many labels in English because many of machines were exported. Another reason is because Russians don't read many labels and manuals anyway.

    bet - ставка (ставок больше нет = ставки больше не принимаются = ставки сделаны = the bets have been made)
    play - игра, играть
    spin - I guess there are many variants for this word. I'd translete that as крутить or вращать.

    To capergirl-
    for "play" just to let you know... играть is the verb and игра is the noun. Just in case if you didn't know.

    Spin - If that means to spin the roulette than it should be крутить рулетку

    Capergirl, never get involved into russian roulette

    That site is great for poker terms. A few I couldn't find though:

    Ace
    King
    Queen
    Jack


    It would be great if someone could supply the Russian words.

    Thank you,
    Scott

    Ha - thank you for the terms!

    Please excuse my bad Russian. If I want to say ace of clubs would it be?

    туз трефа

    или

    туз трефов

    or something else? I don't understand if "clubs" is supposed to be in genitive case singular or plural.

    Thank you,
    Scott
