Have you had a chance to try our newest table game: Tri Card Poker? This new and improved version of the classic has an enhanced user experience and a new Re-Bet X2 button. The rules, gameplay and payouts are the same as its predecessor, including the types of bets you can make.
Tri Card Poker does everything in threes. You get dealt three cards and can make three bets. The first of which is the Ante bet. At the start of each round, you can bet on the Ante, which means you’ll be going up against the dealer. At Slots.lv, you can put down a minimum of $1 and a maximum of $500 on the Ante. After placing your bet, the Deal button appears. Tap it and you’ll be dealt a three-card hand face up. The dealer is dealt a three-card hand face down.
This is where the second button comes into play. If you like the hand you’ve got, you’ll likely want to pursue the round. To do so, hit Raise; a second bet equal to the Ante will be placed in the Raise circle. The alternative is to Fold and start a fresh new round.
Both the Ante and Raise bets pay even-money when you beat the dealer, but there are a few key points to remember. For one, the Dealer must have a qualifying hand (at Slots.lv that’s a Queen or higher) in order for the Raise to pay out. If the Dealer doesn’t have at least a Queen, your Ante pays out, but your Raise is returned as a push.
Remember when we said that both the Ante and Raise bets pay even-money? Well, there’s a special bonus payout that’s added to the standard even-money payout when you land premium hands – that’s for the Ante only. And, the best part is you don’t even need to beat the dealer for the bonus payout. Let’s say you land a straight, and the Dealer lands a flush, you’d still pocket that bonus payout.
The Pair+ bet also pays out regardless of the dealer’s hand. You could play the entire game betting only on Pair+. The Dealer will still get dealt three cards – albeit face up since it doesn’t really matter. With this strategy, you win every time you land a pair or better. We’ll take a look at the individual payouts:
Straight Flush: 40-1
3 of a Kind: 30-1
If you’re new to the game, try playing a few rounds of Tri Card Poker on Practice Play in our Table Games section. You can see if you prefer the Ante/Raise approach or the Pair+ strategy – or you can combine both for a fully immersive experience.
