Basic Rules of  3 Card Poker

Ante and Play

Three cards are dealt to each player who has placed an ante bet and three cards to the dealer. After viewing his three cards the player must decide to either:

 

  1. make a play bet, placing an additional amount equal to the ante bet, or

  2. fold, losing the ante bet and any Pair Plus® bet.

 

 

Following this decision, the dealer's hand is revealed and there is a showdown.

 

  • If the dealer does not have Queen high or better, the ante bet is paid even money and the play bet is returned.

  • If the dealer does have Queen high or better and the player's hand beats the dealer's hand the ante bet and play bet are paid even money.

  • If the dealer does have Queen high or better and the player's hand is equal to the dealer's hand the player's ante and play bets are returned.

  • If the dealer does have Queen high or better and the player's hand is worse than the dealer's hand the ante and play bet are lost.

 

 

An additional bonus is also payed on the ante bet irrespective of dealer's hand or outcome of the hand if the player holds a strong hand
