Invented in the 1990s, three-card poker is a casino table a in which the player plays directly against the dealer. The player is dealt three cards and must decide whether to play or fold. If he/she plays, the dealer’s hand is revealed. The dealer’s hand must be a queen high or better, otherwise the dealer doesn’t play.
In three card poker, the player makes a basic ante bet and has the option of placing extra wagers on the side. The “6-card bonus” awards high hands created with all six upturned cards. The “pair plus” wager awards any hand including a pair or better. Three-card poker is simple, fast and offers potentially high payouts.
