How to Play Let it Ride Poker
A player begins each hand by placing an ante on the table which consists of three identical bets with an option of making an additional $1 bet in order to qualify for a bonus. Six cards are dealt in total.
The first three cards are dealt to the player (face up) and the next three cards are placed in front of the dealer (face down). At this time, the player may choose to withdraw the first bet (Pull Bet) or keep it on the table (Let It Ride).
The dealer then discards the fourth card and turns over the fifth card and the player must decide whether to Let It Ride or to Pull the second bet after which the dealer finally turns over the sixth card and the hand is scored.
The player wins if the player's hand qualifies with at least a pair of tens, the payoff is determined by the quality of the hand. Players can win a bonus on top of their payouts if they place the additional $1 bet by drawing one of the following hands: Royal Flush, Straight Flush, Four of a Kind, Full House, Flush, Straight, or Three of a Kind
Once you have chosen an amount that you would like to wager, the amount is divided into three equal piles and placed on the Let It Ride table. You may also choose to place a $1 bet by clicking on the BONUS PAYOUT red circle to qualify for a bonus and then clicking on the "DEAL" button. The dealer will deal each player three cards face up and themselves three cards face down.
After you receive your 3 cards, you must decide whether to Let It Ride or Pull Bet. If you select the latter, one bet will be pulled from the table back to the your hand. The fourth card is then discarded and the fifth card revealed. You must again make a decision whether to Let It Ride or Pull Bet. Once one of these options has been selected, the dealer will reveal the sixth and final card.
You win if you have a pair of 10's or better. The different hands offer different pay offs which can vary from casino to casino. The bonus bet if available is usually as set jackpot for hitting a hand such as a Royal Flush
