§ 686a.9. Irregularities.

 (a)  A card found face up in the shoe may not be used in that round of play and shall be placed in the discard rack.

 (b)  If there are insufficient cards remaining in the shoe to complete a round of play, all of the cards in the discard rack shall be shuffled and cut in accordance with the procedures in §  686a.5 (relating to shuffle and cut of the cards). The first card shall be drawn face down and placed in the discard rack and the dealer shall complete the round of play.

 (c)  If after receiving the first card, the dealer fails to deal the additional two cards to a player, then, at the player’s option, the dealer shall either deal the additional cards after all other players have received their additional cards and complete the round of play, or call the player’s hand dead and return the player’s initial Ante Wager.

 (d)  If an automated card shuffling device is being used and the device jams, stops shuffling during a shuffle or fails to complete a shuffle cycle, the cards shall be reshuffled.

 (e)  If an automated shuffling device malfunctions and cannot be used, the device must be covered or have a sign indicating that it is out of order placed on the device before any other method of shuffling may be utilized at that table.
