How to play
You'll get 2 hole cards, and there will be 3 community cards on the table. You
can only play 1 hand at a time, and your mission is to get a higher hand than
the dealer. Can you do it?
Placing your bet couldn't be easier! Just select a chip and place your
compulsory ANTE bet by clicking on the ante position. Keep placing chips until
you're happy with your bet. You will then be offered the choice of one or two
spicy side bets. Paired or Suited side bets will win if your 2 hole cards
are a pair or of the same suit, whilst the Straight or Better side bet
will win if your best 3 cards are a straight or higher. Which will you choose?
Simply hit DEAL when you're ready to get your show on the road and you'll get
2 hole cards, as will the Dealer. You can find the 3 community cards in the
middle of the table - 1 will be facing up and the other 2 will be facing down.
The TURN (x1 ante bet)
Will you BET or FOLD? It all depends on the strength of your poker hand and
your reasoning If you think you've got a strong hand, hit BET and you'll place
another bet equivalent to your original ante bet and turn over the 2nd
community card. Otherwise, you can hit FOLD; the game will end and you will
forfeit your ante bet.
The RIVER (x1 ante bet)
The RIVER bet involves placing another bet that is equivalent to your ante bet
after you have placed a bet at the TURN stage of the game. If you have
assessed your 3-card poker hand again and placed another bet, you'll turn over
the 3rd community card. You can choose to CHECK if your hand isn't strong
enough, and this means that your game will finish without you placing another
Once all 3 community cards have been revealed, the outcome of the game depends
on the dealer's hand. The dealer must have a pair of 4s or better, and you can
be presented with 3 options. If your hand beats the dealer's hand, you win
1-1 on TURN/RIVER bets if the dealer doesn't qualify with a pair of 4s or
better, and your ante is pushed. If the dealer does qualify in this situation,
you win 1-1 on all three bets. If the dealer's hand beats your hand ,
you'll lose all bets. All bets will be pushed if yours and the dealer's
hands are the same rank.
All side bets will then be settled according to the paytable. If you win the
game, check the top right of the game screen to see your total win displayed
in the PAID field.
