3 Card Poker

3 Card Poker

3 Card Poker is perfect for modern players who want a fast-paced game with more ways to play—and more ways to win! Bet against the dealer, bet on the value of your hand, or bet on both!

How to play 3 Card Poker:

  • Place your bet! (Ante and Pair Plus wagers must be placed before the cards are dealt.)
  • Three cards are dealt to each player and the dealer.
  • The dealer only plays with a qualifying hand  (Queen or better).
  • Players can choose to play by placing an amount equal to the ante wager on the PLAY spot.


Ante Wager: Play against the dealer

Play Wager: Bet placed when, after looking at your cards, you believe your hand will beat the dealer’s hand.

Pair Plus: Bet placed when you believe your hand includes a pair or higher.

Ante Bonus: A bonus payout based on the value of your hand, regardless of the dealer’s hand (no additional bet required).

How to Win!

Ante Wager: When the dealer does not play and/or when you have a higher hand, YOU WIN!

Play Wager: When you play Play Wager and beat the dealer’s hand, YOU WIN!

Pair Plus: When you play Pair Plus and have a pair or better, YOU WIN!

Straight Flush 5 to 1 40 to 1
