To play, players make equal bets in the Ante and Blind circles and may also make the Trips bonus bet. Once players receive their two hole cards, they can either check or bet 4x their Ante. The dealer then reveals the three-card flop. If players haven’t already made a Play bet, they have a choice: check or bet 2x their Ante. The dealer then reveals the final two community cards and if players have not already bet, they can fold or bet 1x their Ante.
Next, the dealer reveals his two hole cards and announces his hand. If the player’s hand beats the dealer, their Play and Ante bets win even money. If the dealer’s hand beats the player, the player’s wagers lose. If players tie the dealer’s hand, their bets push. The Blind bet pays if the player’s winning hand is at least a straight or better, but if players beat the dealer with less than a straight or better, it pushes.
The dealer needs at least a pair to qualify. If the dealer doesn’t qualify, he returns the player’s Ante and all other bets receive action.
Featuring three ways to play and four ways to win, players may bet against the dealer, bet on the value of their own three-card hand, or bet both.
To play against the dealer, players make an Ante wager. After looking at their hands, they may fold or place an equal Play wager to stay in the game. If a player’s hand beats the dealer’s qualifying hand of a Queen-high or better, they win both wagers. If the dealer doesn’t qualify, players win the Ante wager and their Play wager pushes.
To play their hand value only, players make the Pair Plus wager which wins if their hand contains a pair or better. To play both the Ante and Pair Plus, players must make a Play wager if they have placed the Ante, or they forfeit the Ante.
With premium hands of a straight or higher, players win an Ante Bonus payout even if the dealer doesn’t qualify, or even if they lose to the dealer.
