How to Play
All players must make three equal bets putting them on special marking circles on the table. Then the dealer gives three cards to each player and to himself. The dealers cards are face up. As the player assesses the power of his cards, the player should decide if he should pull a bet or “Let it Ride” (leave the wager).
Then the dealer exposes the next community card. The player has to make the solution again whether he pulls the bet or leaves the wager.
Then the dealer reveals the last card and checks the players’ cards, which are revealed and the hands are verified for win. You lose all your bets if you do not have winning hand. In case you have a winning hand, you are paid according to the paytable.
You can make additional bets in many casinos, which are paid in case the player has winning hand that is included into the payout table. Let us look at the payout table of Cryptologic software, for instance, in which the bonus bet is $1.
