Let it Ride games are a relatively new version of poker that many casinos are adopting. It is a popular game but it does not make a lot of money for the casino. They have to host the game or they will lose customers. But, there are not going to be many Let it Ride tables open in any one given casino.
Let It Ride Games are based on the rules of 5 Card Stud. You are going to get three cards down instead of two, but the next two will be shown after betting (or taking back your bet). The two cards up will be community cards for everyone to use in their hands.
You are going to have three betting options. The first bet has to remain. If you lose, you lose the first bet for sure. The second and third bets can be withdrawn if you don't like your hand. This option will be given after you have seen your first three cards and then again after the dealer flips over the first of the two community cards.
Betting in Let it Ride Games
The payouts are going to be made based upon your hand. You are not competing with anyone. The dealer is not going to have a hand to beat you, so what you get counts. Therefore, if you get a good pair right off the bat, you should stay through all three bets and collect.
