3 Card Poker
If you like poker, you'll love 3 Card Poker.
Objective of the Game
3 Card Poker is a popular card game played in casinos around the world including the UK and Las Vegas. It is a fast moving and interactive game based on the relative strength of your hand against Poker values. The game offers you two betting opportunities on the three cards you are dealt, Pair Plus and conventional casino poker Ante and Play options. You can bet on these two games together or separately.
The Pair Plus game rewards you on the Poker value of your three cards irrespective of what the dealer's hand is. Your Ante bet (and subsequent Play bet, if you choose to do so) is against the dealer's hand. In order to qualify, the dealer's hand must contain at least Queen high.
3 Card Poker at 32Red is played with one deck of 52 cards, which is shuffled after each hand.
How To Play
Both dealer and player receive three cards. Pair Plus bets are rewarded on the value of the player's hand, irrespective of the dealer's cards. See below for payout schedule. Players can also place an Ante bet against the dealer's hand. Once they have their cards, in order to play the hand against the dealer, a Play bet is placed which is equal to the initial Ante bet.
In order to qualify, the dealer must receive at least Queen high. When the dealer does qualify, then winning hands pay 1-1 on both Ante and Play bets (see below for bonuses). When the dealer does not qualify, the Ante bet is paid at 1-1, with the Play bet a push (draw).
