Classic Tri Card Poker

Tri Card Poker

Game Description

Play Tri-Card Poker and have three times the fun in one great game. In the Pair Plus betting circle, place your bet if you think your three card hand will have a pair. In the Ante betting circle, place your bet and win by getting a better three card hand than the dealer. Players can choose to bet on either of these options, or both at the same time.


How To Play Tri-Card Poker


Bets don't have to be equal amounts. After placing the ante, the player is dealt three cards face up and the dealer, three cards face down. The player has the option to fold the hand, or raise if they think they can beat the dealer's hand. The dealer then shows their hand, but only if they have a queen or higher. The highest hand between player and dealer is declared the winner. If the dealer has the highest, the player loses both the ante and the raise. If the dealer doesn't qualify, the player is paid 1/1 on the ante and the raise is returned as a push. If the player has a straight or better, he gets paid accordingly. The Pair Plus is a separate bet that wins if the player's hand has a pair or higher. Payout is based on rank of hand. See the chart below.
