The worst part of Tri Card Poker is that you might find it too difficult to tear yourself away from this game. Learn the slightly unusual rules and then dive head-first into this undeniably fun experience!
This addictive treat from RTG removes two cards from your hand and, in exchange, gives you a rapid-fire gameplay style that you are quite likely to find appealing. The house edge in this game is very small, and the line between winning and losing is very thin, so hands are quite exciting. They are also usually played very quickly, which makes it easy to rack up winnings and losses quite quickly. It also makes it hard to stop playing!
You must understand the betting structure and how the dealer ‘qualifies’ in order to have a good grasp of this game. Start by making your bets. The ante bet is what you think it is, while the pair plus bet only comes into play if the dealer qualifies and you have a pair or better hand. Click on ‘deal’ to receive your three cards.
Now, you must decide whether you want to fold and lose your ante and pair plus bets or if you would like to stay in the hand and pony up the ‘raise’ bet which is always equal to your ante. A few things can unfold once the cards are flipped over. If the dealer does not ‘qualify’ by having a least a queen or better, you win an amount equal to your ante bet and the other bets push. If the dealer qualifies and you beat him, you win your ante bet, the raise and a possible pair plus bet which can be many times your pair plus bet if you have the appropriate hand. Should the dealer qualify and beat you, everything you have on the table is lost.
