Three Card Poker incorporates the excitement of Poker with the speed
of a regular casino game.

There are three ways you can play:
ANTE/PLAY – the aim is to get a Three Card Poker hand with a value higher
than the Dealer’s, or
PAIRS PLUS – the aim is to get a Three Card Poker hand with a pair or higher
(regardless of the Dealer’s hand).
6 CARD BONUS – where if you get 3 of a kind or better, utilising both your cards
and the Dealer’s, you can win from 5 up to 1000 times your wager.

To get started, place any cash on the table and the Dealer will exchange it for
gaming chips. Before any cards are dealt you must decide whether to place a wager on
the Ante & Play, Pairs Plus or 6 Card Bonus. Choosing from one, two or three at a time,
your objective is to beat the Dealer’s hand or achieve a hand that qualifies for a bonus.
A 6 card bonus wager can only be placed if an ‘Ante’ or ‘Pairs Plus’ wager is placed.

After all wagers are placed, the Dealer will deal three cards face down to each player
and also to themselves. You can then view your hand and decide whether you want
to play or fold (forfeit).

If you don’t think your hand can beat the Dealer’s, or you don’t have a pair or higher,
then you can choose to fold your Ante wager and Pairs Plus wager.

If you have placed an Ante wager and you think your hand can beat the Dealer’s, you
must place an amount equal to your Ante in the ‘Play’ area on the layout.

If you have only placed a Pairs Plus wager then you are not permitted to make a Play
wager but the hand will be played to completion.

Once all betting has finished, the Dealer will turn their cards face up. The Dealer needs
a Queen or higher to make a hand or to open. If the Dealer does not open with a Queen
or higher, then all Player wagers shall be a stand-off. Ante wagers are paid at even money
and any winning Pairs Plus and Ante Bonus wagers are paid. 6 Card Bonus is paid if you
have 3 of a kind or better.

If the Dealer opens and your hand beats the Dealer’s, then your Ante and Play wagers are
paid at even money. Should the Dealer’s hand beat your hand, the Dealer will collect both
your Ante and Play wagers.

If you have a pair or higher, your Pairs Plus wager will be paid in accordance with the order
of hands and odds listed on a sign on the table, regardless of the Dealer’s hand.

ANTE BONUS

Ante wagers will qualify for a bonus payment if the hand contains a Straight or higher,
regardless of the Dealer’s hand.


ORDER OF HANDS

The order of hands in Three Card Poker is different to Poker.  In Three Card Poker a
Straight beats a Flush and a Three of a Kind beats a Straight.  The order is as follows:


1. STRAIGHT FLUSH
 

2. THREE OF A KIND
 

3. STRAIGHT
 

4. FLUSH
 

5. ONE PAIR
 

6. THREE ODD CARDS
 

Hands of the same value but consisting of different card values shall be ranked in
accordance with the rank of cards (Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2).

Example 1: a straight containing a Ace, King, Queen, shall be ranked higher than
a Straight containing a 3, 2, Ace.

Example 2: if both hands hold the highest Pair, the respective card value of the
third card of the hands determines which hand shall be higher.
