Three Card Poker*

In this game, bet against the dealer, on the value of your own three-card hand or bet both. Bonus payouts may be paid for certain hands when wagering against the dealer.  


HOW TO PLAY

Three Card Poker is an exciting stud poker game with three ways to play and four different ways to win. Bet against the dealer, on the value of your own three-card hand or bet both. Bonus payouts may be had for certain hands when wagering against the dealer.

Play Against the Dealer

To play against the dealer, place an ante wager. After looking at your three-card hand you may fold, or if you think your hand beats the dealer, place an equal wager on the play spot. If your hand beats the dealer's qualifying hand of a queen or better, you win both wagers! If the dealer doesn't qualify, you win the ante wager and the play wager is a push.

Play Hand Value

To play the hand value only (not against the dealer), place a wager on the pair plus spot. If your hand contains a pair or better, you win.

Play Both

To play both, bet the ante and pair plus spots. You must make a play wager if you have placed the ante, or forfeit the ante.

Odds of Winning Three Card Poker

Three Card Poker is a chance-based casino game. Games of chance are based on the concepts of randomness. You cannot influence whether you will win or lose, so all players have an equal chance of winning. It doesn't matter if you just lost three times in a row, or 40. The odds of winning never change. The only thing you can control is how much you bet, how often you play and for how long. That's why many players set a limit beforehand — it's the best way to keep chance-based games fun.
