Three Card Poker

Three Card Poker

How to Play

A 3-Card Poker game consists of two hands that are made with three cards, one that is the player's and the other the dealer's hand. 3 Card Poker has two ways to bet and win:

  1. ANTE + PLAY: To win, you must have a higher hand than the dealer.
  2. PAIR PLUS: To win, you must have at least a pair or higher hand. Flushes or better receive higher payouts than 1:1.

To begin play, place a wager on the ANTE, the PAIR PLUS, or both, depending on your betting strategy. The dealer and player are dealt three cards. Dealer must have a Queen or higher to qualify. If dealer qualifies, the highest hand wins the ANTE + PLAY bet. If player has a pair or higher, the PAIR PLUS wins regardless of the dealer's hand.

Ante and Play

To PLAY your hand, a wager equal to the ANTE is required. You are wagering that your hand beats the dealer's or that the dealer will not qualify. If your hand is higher than the dealer's qualifying hand, you win both ANTE and PLAY bets, otherwise you lose both. If the dealer does not qualify, you win the ANTE bet and the PLAY pushes. If you fold, all wagers including PAIR PLUS are forfeited.

Pair Plus

If you bet on PAIR PLUS, you are wagering that you'll receive at least a pair or something higher in your hand. Any hand that is a pair or higher pays according to the Payouts Chart regardless of what the dealer's hand has. If only Pair Plus is played then the dealer hand is not played as there is no RAISE or FOLD. There is no skill requirement to this bet as it only consists on the outcome of the three cards.

Anything less than a pair does not win. If you ANTE and do not PLAY, this wager is forfeited.

Ante Bet Bonus

If you hit PLAY with a straight or higher (straight, 3 of a kind, or straight flush), the ANTE receives a bonus in accordance to the Payouts Chart, no matter of the outcome of the dealer's hand. If you place your mouse over the Payouts Chart you will get complete details on the payout scenarios for this game

Deal

Press Deal once a bet is placed and you are ready to begin the game. You are dealt three cards face up. To win, you must out-rank the dealer's hand.

Play

Press Play if you think your hand is high enough to beat the dealer's hand or if you have a Pair Plus; which will automatically place a wager equal to your ANTE wager, play your hand against the dealer's, and (or) play your Pair Plus bet.

Fold

If after viewing your three cards, you don't like your chances of "out ranking" the dealer or don't have a Pair Plus, you can "Fold" your cards and not risk losing a PLAY wager.

Re-Bet

Press Re-Bet to repeat your previous wager (same bet amount) and automatically deal your next hand.

Hand Rankings in 3 Card Poker

Hand rankings are different winning combinations in 3 Card Poker. The ranking of the hands in 3 Card Poker differs from traditional poker hands. In 3 Card Poker, a STRAIGHT beats a FLUSH. Cards are ranked from highest to lowest in the following order:

STRAIGHT

FLUSH

THREE OF A KIND

PAIR

High Card

Straight Flush

A Straight Flush consists of three cards in order and of the same suit; (note that an ace can usually be counted as the lowest card in the order) for example: A, K, Q, - Highest A, 2, 3, - 2nd Highest 2, 3, 4, - Lowest

Three of a Kind

Three cards of same rank For example: A, A, A, - Highest 2, 2, 2, - Lowest

Straight

A straight consists of three cards in order, but not of the same suit. For example: A, K, Q, - Highest A, 2, 3, - 2nd Highest 2, 3, 4, - Lowest

Flush

If all three cards in a hand belong to the same suit, you have a Flush.

Pair

Two cards of same rank For example: A, A, - Highest 2, 2, - Lowest

High Card

If neither dealer nor player has a pair or better, the highest card wins. If equal, the next highest cards are matched. If all three cards are equal then player wins.
