Three Card Poker is played using a single standard deck of 52 cards. The object of the game is to have a higher hand than the Dealer's hand. Unlike other poker games you are not competing against another player.
When all the bets have been placed on the Ante and/or Pair Plus bet, players may also place a Prime bet if they have an Ante and/or a Pair Plus bet. Players then receive three cards each as does the Dealer. If after viewing their hands, players wish to stay in the game, they must place a Play bet, otherwise their Ante wager is lost and surrendered to the House. To qualify, the Dealer’s hand has to be a Queen high or better. If not, the player will win even money on the Ante bet and the Play bet will be a standoff. If the Dealer does qualify, the Player's hand will be compared to the Dealer's hand and the higher hand wins.
If the Player has the higher poker hand - the Ante and Play will both pay even money.
If the Dealer has the higher poker hand - the Ante and Play will both lose.
If the Player and Dealer hands are exactly the same (a tie) - the Ante and Play bets will be a standoff.
If the player has an Ante bet and has a straight or better, then the player will receive an Ante Bonus, regardless of the value of the Dealer's hand.
