Three card poker is exactly what it sounds like; poker involving only three cards. The rules are not quite as simple though. Since it is a table game, there are going to be different payouts for different hands as well as playing options.
Rules of Three Card Poker
Basic Three Card Poker involved an ante and then a bet. You are going to ante before the cards are dealt. Once they are in play, you are going to look at your hand. If you are confident that your hand will win, you place your bet on the play part. If you want to fold, you lose your ante.
When a player decides to play, the dealer will then flip over their cards. If the dealer does not have a queen high or better, the Ante pays one to one and the Play is a push. If the dealer does and the player has a higher hand, both the Ante and the Play pay one to one. If you lose, then you lose it all.
Some tables have a PairPlus section. This is a separate bet that is played at different odds. If you put money there and win, you are going to get a good jackpot. It ranges from one to one for a pair and 40 to 1 for a straight flush.
