S.D. Admin. R. 20:18:16:08 - Shuffle and cut of the cards

Before the play, the dealer must, in front of the players, shuffle the cards so that they are randomly intermixed. The dealer must cut the cards. The dealer must restack the cards with the former bottom part of the deck on top. The dealer must place the cutting card on the bottom of the deck to conceal the last card which must never be dealt.

The retail licensee must have two separate decks of cards available at each table. The color of the backs of the cards of the two decks must be of a different predominant color. A player may request that the dealer change decks. If such a request is made, the dealer must switch the decks at the end of that hand.
