3 Card Poker
The object of Three Card Poker is to beat the player/dealer in a three-card poker game. The ranking of hands are as follows:
1 Royal Flush, 2 Straight Flush, 3 Three of a kind, 4 Straight, 5 Flush, 6 Pair, 7 High Card
Each player receives three cards face-down. The player/dealer receives three cards, two face-down and one face-up.

Once players inspect their hand, they have two options:
Fold the hand and forfeit the Ante; or Stay in the game by making a Play bet; this bet must equal the Ante.
The player/dealer must qualify to play with a minimum Queen-high.
If the player/dealer does NOT qualify, the play bet receives no action. The dealer shall immediately refund this bet to players.
The Ante will receive action. If the player’s hand beats the player/dealer’s hand, the dealer will then pay each ante – the ones not surrendered by folding (i.e. even money). If the player’s hand does not beat the player/dealer’s hand, the dealer does not pay.
If the player/dealer’s hand qualifies, the dealer shall immediately stack each player’s play bet atop the ante. If the player’s hand beats the player/dealer’s, the player wins even money. If the player/dealer’s hand beats the player’s, the player loses.
The round of play ends when the player/dealer exhausts his bankroll, or when all player wagers receive full action, whichever occurs first.
The Bonus Bet is an optional bet for players who placed an ante bet. The rules are as follows:
- Bonus Bets must be placed prior to the initial deal.
- Bonus Bet must equal the Ante to qualify for a Bonus Bet payoff.
- The Player/Dealer will pay all winning bonus bets and will collect all losing bonus bets.
- In the event that the player/dealer’s wager does not cover the amount wagered by the players, an action button will be used to designate where the action will begin. Additionally, each player’s wager receives action in the following order: Ante Bet, Play Bet, Bonus Bet.
