    Default hi I'm doing a poker game project, but I find it hard to do. Can someone please help me?

    okay so I did the card.java
    public class Card {

    private int Value;
    private int Suit;
    /*1 - club ♣
    *2 - diamond ♦
    *3 - spade ♠
    *4 - heart ♥
    */
    String club;
    public Card()
    {
    Value=1;
    Suit = 1;
    }
    public Card(int v, int s)
    {
    Value = v;
    Suit=s;
    }
    public int getValue()
    {
    return Value;
    }
    public int getSuit()
    {
    return Suit;
    }
    public String getName()
    {
    String name = "";
    if(Value == 11)
    name += "J";
    if(Value == 12)
    name += "Q";
    if(Value == 13)
    name += "K";
    if(Value == 1)
    name += "A";
    if(Suit == 1)
    name += "C♣";
    if(Suit == 2)
    name += "D♦";
    if(Suit == 3)
    name += "S♠";
    if(Suit == 1)
    name += "H♥";
    return name;
    }
    }
    I don't know how to do the bet class, bankroll class, deck class, hand class and player class.
    But I tried to do BankRoll, deck and Bet but I don't know if these are correct. here are the codes:
    [[Here's what my teacher statement: Bet Class
    Information (variables):
    - Amount of Bet
    Actions (methods):
    - Return amount of bet
    - Change amount of bet
    ]]
    public class Bet {
    private int Bet;
    public Bet()
    {
    Bet=1;
    }
    public Bet(int b)
    {
    Bet = b;
    }
    public int getBet()
    {
    return Bet;
    }
    public void ChangeBet()
    {
    }
    [[For :Bankroll Class
    Information (variables):
    - Balance
    Actions (methods):
    - Update current number of credits (increase or decrease), can be set
    - Return the number of credits
    - Change the number of credits (sets the balance, used mainly to set the starting balance)
    ]]
    public class BankRoll {
    private int Balance;
    public BankRoll(int b)
    {
    Balance=b;
    }
    public int getBankRoll()
    {
    return Balance;
    }
    }
    [[Deck Class
    Information (variables):
    - An array of cards
    - The current card (this simulates the top card)
    Actions (methods):
    - Deal
    - Shuffle]]
    public class Deck {
    private int[] myDeck;
    public static final int NUMCARDS = 52;
    public Deck()
    {
    myDeck = new int[NUMCARDS];
    for(int i = 0; i<NUMCARDS; i++)
    myDeck[i] = 1;
    }
    private void current(int[] a, int i, int j)
    {
    int temp = a[i];
    a[i] = a[j];
    a[j]=temp;
    }
    public void shuffle()
    {
    int num;
    for(int i = NUMCARDS - 1; i>0; i--)
    {
    num = (int)(Math.random()*(1+i));
    current(myDeck, i, num);
    }
    }
    }
    here's what he said how to do the hand class:
    [[Hand Class
    Information (variables):
    - An array of cards
    - A Deck
    Actions (methods):
    - New Hand - 5 cards
    - Discard & Replace
    - Score - return the highest hand
    ]]
    [[here's what he said on how to do the player]]
    Hand Class
    Information (variables):
    - None specific to the player class, a Scanner is needed
    Actions (methods):
    ***I've included the the return type and parameters for each method needed to work with the Game class I provided
    - void welcome() - displays a welcome message
    - int setBankRoll() - asks for the number of credits to deposit, returns that value
    - int menu() - displays a menu with 3 choices - 1: make a bet and play, 2: add more credits, 3: quit and cash out
    - int bet() - asks user to place a bet, returns that value
    - void showScore(int payout) - displays the outcome of the hand (Royal Flush,
    - void showBalance(int balance) - displays the balance of the credits
    - void showHand(Card[] cards) - displays the hand
    - int[] discard(Card[] cards) - asks to discard each card, returns and array with responses (1 for yes, 2 for no)
    - void showWinnings(int winnings) - displays credits won on hand
    - void endGame(int balance) - displays an ending message, including final balance ]]

    here's what I have done:
    public class Player {
    public void welcome()
    {
    System.out.println("Welcome, Let's play Poker");
    }
    private int setBankRoll()
    {
    return 0;
    }
    private int menu()
    {
    return 0;
    }
    private int bet()
    {
    return 0;
    }
    private void showScore(int payout)
    {

    }
    private void showBalance(int balance)
    {

    }
    public void showHand(Card[] cards)
    {

    }
    public int[] discard(Card[] cards)
    {
    return null;
    }
    public void showWinnings(int winnings)
    {

    }
    public void endGame(int balance)
    {

    }


    }

    I do have the game class
    here is the Game class:

    public class Game {

    private Hand hand;
    private BankRoll bank;
    private Bet bet;
    private Player player;

    public Game()
    {
    hand = new Hand();
    bank = new BankRoll();
    bet = new Bet();
    player = new Player();
    }

    public void startGame()
    {
    int choice;
    int winnings;
    int payout;
    int discards[] = {0, 0, 0, 0, 0};

    player.welcome(); //Displays a welcome message
    bank.changeBankRoll(player.setBankRoll()); //Asks user to deposit credits
    choice = player.menu(); //Asks user to choose one of 3 actions - play, add credits, quit
    while(choice != 3) //repeats until user quits
    {
    if (choice == 1) //user chooses to play
    {
    bet.setBet(player.bet()); //Asks user to place a bet
    bank.changeBankRoll(-bet.getBet()); //Deducts the bet from the bankroll
    hand.newHand(); //Deals a new hand
    player.showHand(hand.getHand()); //Displays the hand to the user
    discards = player.discard(hand.getHand()); //Gets discards from user as an array - discards[#] = 1 for a discard, 2 to not discard
    for(int c = 0; c < discards.length; c++) //Loops through discard array
    if(discards[c] == 1)
    hand.discard(c); //Discards specific card
    player.showHand(hand.getHand()); //Displays hand after discards
    payout = hand.score(); //Calculates payout odds based on hand score - payout = 250 for royal flush, etc.
    player.showScore(payout); //Displays the result of the hand
    winnings = payout * bet.getBet(); //Calculates amount user wins
    if(payout != 0) //Tests if user won
    bank.changeBankRoll(winnings + bet.getBet()); //Adds winnings to the bankroll
    player.showWinnings(winnings); //Displays winnings to user
    player.showBalance(bank.getBankRoll()); //Displays bankroll balance to user

    }
    else
    {
    bank.changeBankRoll(player.setBankRoll()); //Asks user how many credits to add to bankroll
    }
    choice = player.menu(); //Displays menu of choices again
    }
    player.endGame(bank.getBankRoll()); //Displays amount of credits user has won when they quit
    }
    }
    }
    Please please please help on how to do them, and please correct the wrong ones. I am having a trouble in understanding java.
