    Game Rules

    An unlimited number of players can play at any one time. 

    This game is played with a standard deck of 52 cards, which are shuffled at the end of every round. 

    To start, place an Ante and Blind bet of the same value. 

    You can also place an optional Trips bet, which is based solely on your final five-card poker hand - the Trips bet pays even if you fold your hand. 

    Once the betting time is up, you and the dealer will be dealt two cards each.

    Your cards will be dealt face-up and the dealer's cards face-down. 

    You then have a choice of three betting options: 

    • Raise your ante bet x3
    • Raise your ante bet x4
    • Check - do nothing

    You can only raise once per game round - the earlier you raise, the more you can bet and potentially win.

    If you choose to raise x3 or x4, all five community cards will be dealt - your and the dealer's best five-card poker hands will then be evaluated.

    If you choose to Check, three of the five community cards will be dealt and you need to decide whether to Check again or raise your ante bet x2. 

    Selecting raise x2 will see the last two community cards dealt, followed by the evaluation of your and the dealer's best five-card poker hands. 

    Selecting Check will also see the last two community cards dealt and you will have one final choice to make:

    • Fold - folds your hand and surrenders both your Ante bet and Blind bet
    • Raise your ante bet x1  - the dealer's cards will be revealed and your best five-card poker hands will be evaluated


    As soon as your have made your final decision, the dealer's two cards will be revealed.

    Both your best five-card poker and the dealer's will be automatically formed and compared.

    To qualify, the dealer's hand must consist of a pair or higher - if it doesn't the Ante bet pushes (returned to you).

    If the dealer does have a pair or higher, the Ante bet will be in play:

    • If your hand is stronger, you win and will be paid accordingly 
    • If the dealer's hand is better, you will lose your Play, Ante and Blind bets
    • If your hands tie, your Play, Ante and Blind bets will all be returned
