Three Card Poker

The aim of the game is to have a higher Poker hand than the Dealer, or to have a hand of a Pair or better, or to have any combination of the two.

How to play

The objective of the game is to get a Three Card Poker hand with a value higher than the Dealer’s hand. At the start of the game before any cards are dealt, decide whether to place a bet on ANTE and/or on PAIR PLUS.

After you have placed your initial bet(s), the Dealer will deal three cards face-down to each player and to themselves. After all the cards have been dealt, pick up your cards and view them.

If you have placed on an ANTE bet and you believe your hand is high enough to beat the Dealer’s hand, then you can continue to play by placing an additional bet on Play that is equal to your original ANTE bet.

If you believe your hand will not beat the Dealer’s or you do not have a Pair, then you can fold and your ANTE and/or PAIR PLUS bets will be collected by the Dealer.

Once all players have placed a Play bet or folded, the Dealer will turn their cards face-up. To qualify the Dealer must have a hand of at least Queen high. If the Dealer does not qualify with a Queen high, then the ANTE bet will be paid at even money (1 to 1).

If the Dealer qualifies and your hand beats the Dealer’s, then your ANTE and Play bets are paid at even money. Should the Dealer’s hand beat your hand, the Dealer will collect both your ANTE and Play bets. PAIR PLUS bet* wins when your hand has at least a Pair and will be paid at the odds listed in the pay table at the back regardless of the Dealer’s hand. The 6 Card Bonus side bet* is based on the best 5-card Poker hand that can be made from the six cards dealt between the Dealer and Player.

Each Player uses their own 3 cards and combines them with the Dealer’s 3 cards to determine the best 5-card Poker hand. You win with Three of a Kind or higher! For you to place a 6 Card Bonus wager, you must first have made either an ANTE wager and/or PAIR PLUS wager. Just like the PAIRS PLUS wager, you’re eligible to win even if you fold your ANTE/PLAY wager.
