Triple Card Poker has two independent ways of betting. One
is the Pairsplus bet and the other is the standard Ante play. The player can
choose to wager on either one, both and in different amounts. Both games are
based on a hand consisting of three cards. The hand ranking is similar to poker
with the exception that a straight is harder to get than a flush. See hand ranking
Three of a Kind
Pairsplus is a simple game where the player is dealt three cards. The dealer is also
dealt three cards but in this wager, the dealer's cards are irrelevant. There is no
rasing or discarding with this wager. The result of the player's hand pays out
according to the pay out chart. Click on "View Payouts" in the game to view the pay
Ante and Play
The player begins play by placing a wager on the Ante spot. The player is then dealt
three cards at which point the player can either choose to raise or fold. A raise
is equal to the player's original wager. If the player chooses to fold he/she folds
his/her hand and loses the original wager.
If the player decides to raise, then he/she goes against the
dealer's hand. The dealer needs at least a Queen high to qualify. If the dealer's hand
doesn't qualify, the player wins the Ante bet at 1:1 and the raise bet pushes. If the
dealer does qualify and beats the player's hand, then the player loses both bets. If
the dealer's hand does qualify and the player's hand has a higher rank then the dealer's
hand then player is paid out on both the Ante and the Raise. If the dealer qualifies
and the dealer ties the player, then both wagers push.
In addition, the Ante wager has a bonus that does not depend on the
dealer's hand. Click on the "View Payouts" in the game to see how this pays.
