3 CARD POKER

Read Time:4 Minute, 11 Second

PREMISE

3 Card Poker is a fast and fun poker-style game that requires little strategy for a player to be successful. The low house edge of approximately 2.5% makes it an enticing addition to the casino. Beat the dealer by making the best poker hand possible with one draw of three cards.

HOW TO PLAY

3 Card Poker games are played with a standard 52-card deck. The cards are distributed in hands of three, with cards shuffled after each hand. Straights have a higher ranking than a flush, as there are fewer ways to make a three-card straight. Aces can be either high or low.

 

There are two bets a player can make that will influence the game payout: Ante and Pair Plus. The ante works as it does in conventional poker. This is the “cost” of playing the hand. The Pair Plus is a wager that the player will get at least a pair or higher. Payout levels are listed in a table below. It is not necessary to make both bets, but players must make at least one.

 

Player antes by place his/her bet in the “Ante” Ligawd spot on the table within acceptable table limits. Both dealer and player are dealt three cards face down. The player will determine whether their cards are good enough to bet against the dealer or fold. If player folds, he/she simply loses the ante. If the player decides to test his/her cards against the dealer, he/she must place a wager equal to the ante in the “Play” spot on the table and click the “Play” button. If the player wins the hand, the hand pays both the Ante and the Pair Plus wager (if applicable).

 

Note :  the dealer must have at least Queen High to qualify. Anything lower is an automatic win for the player providing the player has not folded.

 

PAI GOW POKER

 

AIM OF THE GAME

The objective of Pai-Gow Poker is for both of the player’s two hands (denoted the high and low hands) to rank higher than both of the banker’s two hands. The player receives seven cards and makes two traditional poker hands – one of five cards (the high hand), another of two (the low hand). The rankings of the two hands are based upon a basic poker ranking. Thus, the highest two-card hand is two aces and the highest five-card hand is five aces (four aces + the joker).

 

HOW TO PLAY

The player begins by placing a wager on the Pai-Gow table. To do this, click on the chips at the bottom center of the game screen. This will automatically select the minimum bet amount. The wager amount can be increased by left-clicking on the chips at the bottom center of the game screen. The wager amount is decreased by right-clicking on the chips. Once the wager is placed, the player presses the “Deal” button. The dealer deals the player seven cards face up and himself seven cards face down. One standard deck of 52 cards plus one joker is used.

 

The joker is not wild but can be used only as an ace or as a card to complete a straight, a flush, a straight flush or a royal flush.

 

After the player has his seven cards, he must form two hands. The low hand must contain two cards and the high hand five cards. To do this, the player must select the two cards that he wishes to be in the low hand by left-clicking on them. Cards may be unselected by clicking them again. Selected cards will shift up out of the line of player’s cards on the game screen.

 

Note: When forming hands, the rank of the five-card high hand must be higher than the rank of the two-card low hand. If this is not true a messagebox will be displayed asking the player to re-split their hand. Once the player has set both hands, pressing the “Done” button will end the hand. The dealer will split his cards according to fixed house rules and will then compare the player’s hand rank with his own. To win the wager, the player’s low and high hand must both rank higher than the dealer’s low and high hand, respectively. If one of the player’s hands is higher in rank than the dealer’s and the other is lower or equal, this is a tie and the player’s wager is returned. Otherwise, the player’s wager is lost. If both hands are identical, the dealer also wins.

 

Note: When comparing two high hands or two low hands which are of identical poker and hand rank, the hand which contains the highest ranking card shall be considered the higher ranking hand. If the two hands are of identical rank after this comparison, the hands are considered a copy hand and the dealer wins.
