3 Card Poker

32Red Casino describe 3 card poker as "two games in one", because it consists of a Pair Plus element and an Ante element. It is game that involves a selection of poker hands that you are likely to be familiar with, but you do not play against other players. Instead, 3 Card Poker pits the player against the dealer.

The game begins at 32Red Casino when the player places a Pair Plus bet and/or an Ante bet. Three cards are then dealt to both player and dealer. At that point the player decides whether he wants to play his hand or fold. If he folds he loses all the bets he has placed, regardless of whether his Pair Plus bet would have won. If he plays on he must add another bet of equal size to his Ante bet.

The dealer now assesses his hand. If he does not have a Queen high or better he automatically folds his hand and your Ante Bet is paid off at odds of 1 to 1. If he does have a Queen high or better then the player’s hand will be compared with his and the best one wins (payout details below).

Straight Flush = 40/1 Pairs Plus and 5/1 Ante Bonus
The cards are of the same suit and also ranked consecutively (for example, 7, 8, 9 of diamonds). If both player and dealer have a straight flush, the highest straight flush is deemed the winner. 8, 9, 10 of clubs would therefore win against 7, 8, 9 of diamonds.

Three of a Kind = 30/1 Pairs Plus and 4/1 Ante Bonus
The cards all have the same face value (for example, 6, 6, 6). If both player and dealer have a three of a kind, the hand with the highest face value is deemed the winner. J, J, J would therefore win against 6, 6, 6.

Straight = 6/1 Pairs Plus and 1/1 Ante Bonus
The cards are ranked consecutively but do not all have the same suit (for example, 7, 8 of clubs and 9 of diamonds). If both player and dealer have a straight, the highest straight is deemed the winner. 8, 9, 10 would therefore win against 4, 5, 6.

Flush = 4/1 Pairs Plus only
The cards all belong to the same suit, but rank is irrelevant unless both player and dealer have a flush, in which case the hand with the highest ranked card is deemed the winner. 2, 5, 6 of hearts would therefore lose against 2, 5, 7 of spades.

Pair = 1/1 Pairs Plus only
Two cards in the hand have the same face value (for example, 8, 8, 2 or J, J, K). If both the player and the dealer have a pair, the highest pair is deemed the winner.
