Three card poker, or tricard poker as it is also known, is a streamlined poker game that became popular in Great Britain before being adapted to American tastes.
In pairplus, players simply need to get a pair or better in their three card hand in order to win. The amount won on the original bet will depend on the specific hand, with payout tables varying by casino. A straight flush can win as much as 40 times the original bet in some casinos and online three card poker rooms.
Ante-and-play is the second stage game of three card poker, played against the hand of the dealer. Players must ante up before they receive their cards, and in order to play against the dealer they must place a bet that is equivalent to their ante. Interestingly, beating the dealer isnít the only way to win money in ante-and-play. Bonuses are paid out on the ante for especially good hands.
Three card poker is currently popular worldwide, benefiting from both an initial enthusiasm in the UK that has led to increasing popularity in the US and around the globe. As each round is essentially made up of two games, it can seem quite fast paced for players who choose to bet on both phases of the game. Online three card poker in particular can move incredibly quickly, so be sure to pay attention to your bankroll.
One of the most interesting aspects of three card poker is that it is made up of two separate games, with no bearing on one another. These are called pairplus and ante-and-play. Many casinos will allow players to bet on just one of these games or both at once; some even allow free bets for variations of the game.
