Vegas 3 Card Rummy

A few years ago, no casino really offered 3 Card Rummy to players, but it seems to be getting more popular, both online and in land-based casinos.

The game of Rummy originated around 400 years ago in Spain and Mexico and later reached the shores of America and England. It is now one of the most popular card games around.

The casino version sees the player go up against the Dealer with the aim of getting an as low score as possible. It is played with 1 standard deck of 52 cards.

Rules

 
1. Decide the amount you wish to bet. It is worth noting that your initial bet, the Ante bet, is only half the total bet if you wish to play the hand, remember this when deciding how much to bet.
 
2. You can also bet on a bonus game at most casinos, including the one above. More details on how to play this can be found below.
 
3. Once you have placed your bets, you will be dealt 3 cards face up and the Dealer will receive 3 cards face down. At this point, the bonus game is finished and you receive a payout if you win.
 
4. There is only one option to make in 3 Card Rummy which is whether to Raise at this stage or Fold. If you place a Raise bet, you place a further bet equal to the initial Ante bet and have a chance of winning the hand. If you choose to Fold, you lose your Ante bet, but don’t have to put any further money in.
 
5. If you Fold, the hand is over. If you Raise, the Dealer’s cards are turned over and the scores of both hands are compared. The Dealer must have 20 or less in order to ‘qualify’.
 
a. If the Dealer does not qualify, you get even money on your Ante bet and the Raise bet ‘pushes’ – so you get your money back.
 
b. If the Dealer qualifies and you have a lower score than the Dealer, you win a payout depending on your hand – further details are shown below.
 
c. If the Dealer qualifies and has a lower score, you lose both the Ante bet and the Raise bet.
 
d. If the Dealer qualifies and the scores are the same, the bets are a ‘push’ and you get your money returned.
 

3 Card Rummy

Scoring

 
The scoring in 3 Card Rummy is similar to the popular version of Rummy. An Ace is worth 1 point1, a Jack, Queen, and King are worth 10 points, and all numbered cards are worth their face value – 4 is worth 4 points, 6 is worth 6 points etc.
 
This isn’t quite the end of the story though, and this is where things get a bit more complicated. If you play online at one of our recommended sites, you will see your total displayed for you after your 3 cards have been dealt, so you won’t need to worry about working it out for yourself.
 
• If you have a pair or 3 of a kind, those cards score 0 points.
 
• If you have 2 or 3 suited cards in ascending order – such as 5 and 6 of Spades or 10 and Jack of Diamonds, these cards score 0 points. Please note that an Ace-King suited does not count as suited in ascending order as an Ace is considered to be low only.
 
If you are new to Rummy, we would suggest playing for free at one of our recommended sites before you play for real money so you get used to the rules of the game
 

Bonus Game

 
The Bonus game takes into account your hand only, the Dealers hand does not affect the payout.
 
• If you play the Bonus game and get an Ace, 2, 3 suited, you get paid out at 100 to 1.
 
• If you play the Bonus game and get 0 points, you get paid out at 25 to 1.
 
• If you play the Bonus game and get between 1 and 6 points, you get paid out at 2 to 1.
 
• If you play the Bonus game and get between 7 and 10, you get paid out at 1 to 1.
 
• If you play the Bonus game and get 11 or 12, you get paid out at 4 to 1.
 
• If you play the Bonus game and get 13 or more, you lose the Bonus Bet.
 

Payouts

 
Payouts from the Ante bet and Raise bet can get a bit confusing.
 
• If the Dealer fails to qualify, you get your Ante and Raise bet back.
 
If the Dealer qualifies and you have a lower score:
 
• The Ante bet pays out at 1 to 1.
 
• If your score is 0 points, the Raise bet pays out at 4 to 1.
 
• If your score is between 1 and 5 points, the Raise bet pays out at 2 to 1.
 
• If your score is 6 points or higher, the Raise bet pays out at 1 to 1.
 
Please note that these amounts can vary from casino to casino so we recommend you check with the casino for full details.
 

Strategy

 
As there is just one choice to make when playing 3 Card Rummy, apart from whether or not to play the Bonus game, it is hard to get a good strategy going.
 
The suggested way would be to Raise with 20 points or less and Fold with 21 points or more. This is the cut off at which the Dealer qualifies or doesn’t qualify and gives the game a House Edge of around 3.2%.
 
The Bonus game only has a House Edge of 3.5% and with a payout of up to 100 to 1, this is one table game where it can be a good idea to play if you are after a big payout. Most other table games, such as Blackjack, it is not recommended to play Bonus games.

European Roulette

 
The aim of Roulette is to guess where a ball will land following a spin of the Roulette wheel. In European Roulette, there are 37 numbers, 1 to 36 plus 0 which is treated differently from the rest.
 

Rules European Roulette

 
• There are numerous different bets you can make in Roulette, you can make as many or as few as you wish within the timeframe allowed.
 
• The maximum and minimum bets allowed for each bet depends on how likely it is to come in, the less likely and therefore the higher the odds, the lower the maximum bet will be.
 
• Look at the wheel below. You will see 4 different chip sizes down the left-hand side. Click on one of these then once per chip on the required bet area. Details of these are shown below.
 
• This version of Roulette allows you to click Spin when you have finished placing your bets, some versions, especially on Live Casinos and Land-Based Casinos, will tell you when the time is up and no further bets are allowed.
 
• The wheel is then spun and the ball dropped in, once it lands, payouts are made.
 

Types of Bets European Roulette

 
There are many different options in European Roulette when it comes to betting.
 
Inside bets
 
1. Straight up/Single numbers – This is betting on 1 number to come in, such as 17 in the example above – if this number wins, you get 35 to 1 on your bet, any other number means you lose.
 
2. Split/Double numbers – You put a chip between 2 numbers, such as 25 and 28 on the above example. If either of these come in, you win 17 to 1 on your bet.
 
3. Street/Triple numbers – You put a chip between 3 numbers (only applicable for 0,1,2 and 0,2,3), if any of these numbers come in, you win 11 to 1 on your bet.
 
4. Corners – you put a chip on the corner of 4 numbers, such as 29,30,32 and 33 in the above example. If any of these numbers come in, you win 8 to 1 on your bet.
 
European Roulette bet

 
Outside bets – It is worth noting that if the number 0 comes in, all the below bets will lose. This is how the Casino makes their ‘edge’ and ensure they win money in the long term. In European Roulette there is only one zero, this ensures better odds for the player than American Roulette which has two.
 
1. Group bet – You choose whether the number will be in between 1 and 12, 13 and 24 or 25 and 36. In the above example, we have bet on the 1st 12, so if any number between 1 and 12 comes in, we win that bet. It pays out at 2 to 1, so we treble our money.
 
2. Column bets – Similar to a Group bet but you bet on which column the number will be from. Look at the example above and you can see we bet on the middle column, so if any of 2,5,8,11,14,17,20,23,26,29,32 or 35 come in, we win. This also pays out at 2 to 1.
 
3. Even Money bets – There are several of these which are Odd/Even, High/Low or Black/Red. In the above example, we bet on Odd, 1 to 18 (so Low) and Red.
 
In the above example, the number that came in was 19. This meant we won the bets on Red and Odd but lost the rest.

Let ’em Ride Poker

Let ’em Ride is a poker-based casino table game that you play against yourself as opposed to a Dealer or other players. As long as your hand reaches a minimum value, you will win, otherwise, you will lose. There are no bad beats here – if you have a good hand, you get rewarded!
 
In order to play Let ’em Ride, you need to have a basic understanding of poker hands. These are outlined below and can also be found on a separate section of this website.
 
Not all casinos pay out the same amount for each hand when it comes to Let ’em Ride Poker, therefore it is worth shopping around at several of our recommended sites for those with the best payouts.
 
As with all poker, the final hand is made up of 5 cards. You only receive 5 cards in a round of Let ’em Ride, so there is no choice to be made over which cards you use like there are in some versions such as Texas Hold’em.
 
Let it Ride Poker player wins

 

Rules

 
1. The first decision to make is how much you wish to bet during the game. You have the opportunity to make 3 bets of equal size during the hand depending on your cards, therefore we recommend your initial bet is a level where you would feel comfortable betting 3 times that for each hand if you believe your hand is strong enough.
 
2. Once you have placed your initial bet, 3 cards are dealt face up in front of you. As you only receive 5 cards and all these needs to be used, at this point over half the cards to be used in your final hand are known.
 
3. Once you have seen these cards, you have the chance to place a 2nd bet, of equal value to the first one. You need to consider carefully how likely you are to get a hand that meets the minimum payout criteria before deciding whether or not to bet. If you don’t wish to, you can ‘Let it ride’ which allows you to see the next card without betting more, this does mean your payout will be less should your hand be a winning one.
 
4. Once you have made a decision after the first 3 cards are dealt, a 4th card is dealt also face up. You then have a final chance to bet an amount equal to your initial bet, or to ‘Let It Ride’ and not put any more money into the hand.
 
5. Once you have made this decision, a 5th and final card are dealt face up and your final hand is known. Remember, you are trying to get the best hand for yourself and don’t need to worry about any other players or the Dealer.
 
6. Once your final hand is confirmed, payouts are made according to the casino you are in. An example table is shown below as per the game above, as long as you meet the minimum hand needed to win, you will then receive your winnings. If your hand isn’t good enough, you will lose all the bets you made during the hand.
 
7. The Dealer now deals the second Community card which gives you the 5 cards that make up your final hand. You then receive payouts according to the table below:
 

Payouts Let It Ride Poker

 
(As mentioned above, these are different from casino to casino, so before you start playing, if Let ’em Ride Poker is your game of choice, we suggest you check a few of our recommended casinos to ensure you get the best value. The table below is an example of just one):
 

Hands Payouts

 
Royal Flush 1,000 to 1
Straight Flush 200 to 1
Four of a Kind 50 to 1
Full House 11 to 1
Flush 8 to 1
Straight 5 to 1
Three of a kind 3 to 1
Two pairs 2 to 1
Pair of Tens or better 1 to 1
Anything else Lose

Strategy

 
Once the first 3 cards have been dealt, you know 60% of the cards that will make up your final hand. We suggest that if you have any of the below, you place a further Raise bet, otherwise Let It Ride and pay no further money:
 
• Any winning hand, normally a Pair of 10’s or better
 
• Any 3 cards that make up a Royal Flush, 10 through to Ace of the same suit
 
• 3 cards of the same suit and adjacent to each other except for 2-3-4 or A-2-3 as this will give you fewer chances of hitting a good hand
 
• 3 cards that make up a Straight Flush if the cards are spread over 4 numbers (so 6, 7 and 9 as an example), and at least 1 of the cards is a 10 or higher
 
• 3 cards that make up a Straight Flush if the cards are spread over 5 numbers *so 5, 7 and 9 for example), and at least 2 of the cards are a 10 or higher
Once the first 4 cards have been dealt, you know 80% of the cards that will make up your final hand. We suggest that if you have any of the below, you place a further Raise bet, otherwise Let It Ride and pay no further money:
 
• Any winning hand, normally a Pair of 10’s or better
 
• Any 4 cards of the same suit as you are just 1 card away from a flush
 
• Any 4 cards to an Outside Straight (so you have 4, 5, 6 and 7 for example – you need either a 3 or an 8 to complete a straight in this instance), and at least 1 of the cards is a 10 or higher
 
• Any 4 cards to an Inside Straight (so you have 3, 5, 6 and 7 for example – this is not as good as an Outside straight as you only have 1 number that will help as opposed to 2, you would need a 4 to complete a straight in this instance), and at least 2 of the cards are a 10 or higher
 

Side Games

 
As with most table games, there are often side games that can be played for an extra bet. Those associated with Let ’em Ride Poker is normally heavily favored for the casino so we would recommend leaving any and do not offer value for money.
The only one that can be good are those that have a progressive jackpot and that requires a small bet as the one at the top of this page does, you can win a very large sum for getting a Royal Flush and a smaller amount for any other hands from a Flush upwards.
 
It would normally pay out the full jackpot with a Royal Flush, 10% of the jackpot for a Straight Flush, and a set monetary amount for 4 of a kind, Full House or Flush.

Pai Gow Poker

 

An Asian favorite, Pai Gow Poker is one of the more original poker games you are likely to come across when playing online. It is hugely popular and won’t take you that long to get to grips with. So, how does it work?

How To Play Pai Gow Poker

Pai Gow Poker is a poker game which starts out as a 7-card hand and ends with a pair and a five-card hand. As with other poker games, you’re solely looking to obtain a better hand (or hands) than the dealer in this game.
Players must first start by choosing a bet which ranges from $1 up to $500. With their bet staked, the player (and dealer) are dealt a total of 7 cards each. Players can reorganize those cards but must select two cards to split the hand into a front hand (two-card hand) and a bottom hand (five-card hand). It is ideal to put a pair (if you have any) on the front hand.

Pai Gow Poker Gameplay

Once your hand has been split into two separate hands, the hands are compared with those of the dealer. There are several outcomes to Pai Gow Poker. Players may win both hands, they might lose both hands, both hands may be tied, or they may win just a single hand.
 
Pai Gow Dealer Wins
 
If both player’s hands are defeated, they lose their bet. If the dealer wins one hand and the player wins the other, the bets are returned (a push). However, should the player win both hands, they will pocket a 1:1 win. The downside is, the game takes a 5% commission on winning player hands. In the event of both hands being tied, the house wins.

Pai Gow Poker also contains bonus bets, and these can see players pocket additional winnings based on the hands they have (only if they win and if they’ve taken a bonus bet). These payouts can range from 2:1 for a straight, up to 8,000:1 for a 7-card straight flush. It is this aspect of the game which makes Pai Gow Poker so popular at online casinos.

Single Deck Blackjack

 
The aim of Single Deck Blackjack, as with all forms of Blackjack, is to get more than the Dealer without going over 21. The main difference between Single Deck Blackjack and other forms is that it is played with just 1 deck of 52 cards as opposed up to 8 decks at a time. A different deck is used for every hand.
 

Rules

 
• First of all, you need to place your bet. This needs to be between the table minimum and maximum. The Dealer then deals you 2 cards face up and himself 1 card face up and 1 face down.
 
• If the Dealer shows an Ace you will be offered Insurance. This is a separate bet as to whether the Dealer has Blackjack, i.e. the face-down card is valued at 10. If they do, the hand ends here, you lose unless you had Blackjack as well in which case it is a push and your stake is returned.
 
• If the hand doesn’t end here, it is your turn to play. You have a minimum of 3 decisions to make at this point, sometimes more depending on your cards. The choices you can have are as follows:
 
o Stand – Keep the hand you have.
 
o Hit – Get dealt another card, you can then make a further decision after this.
 
o Double – Double your bet and take one more card, you will then Stand.
 
o Split – If your cards are of equal value, you can Split them. This gives you a 2nd hand with one of each cards in each. You will need to pay a further bet equal to your first and then get another card dealt for each. You will then be able to decide your next move for each hand as per the above unless you Split Aces, in which case you will get 1 more card for each hand but must the Stand on each.
 

Single Deck Blackjack 21 Winner
 
• If at any time your hand totals 22 or more, you ‘Bust’ and lose on that hand.
 
• Once you have finished your turn, either by Standing on all hands or Busting, the Dealer turns over their 2nd card.
 
• If their hand is 17 or higher, they will Stand. If they have 16 or lower, they will Hit and receive an extra card. The Dealer has to abide by these rules even if they have a 16 which is higher than all your hands. The Dealer continues receiving cards until they have a total of between 17 and 21 in which case they Stand, or their hand goes over 21, in which case they Bust and you win any hands that are left.
 
• If the Dealer Stands, payouts are made. If the Dealer has the higher value hand the Player loses, if the Player has the higher hand he/she wins and if the values are the same, the hand ‘pushes’ and stakes are returned.
 
• If you have a winning hand, you receive winnings of even money on each hand unless you got Blackjack – An Ace and a 10 in your first 2 cards – in which case you are paid at 3 to 2 on that hand
In the Single Deck Blackjack example below, we had 18 to the Dealers 17, therefore we won at even money.

Caribbean Hold’em

Caribbean Hold’em is a form of hold’em poker, and one which features a progressive jackpot prize. Largely similar in terms of gameplay to Caribbean Stud, getting to grips with this game should be simple enough for most poker players.

How To Play Caribbean Hold’em

As with any poker game, the objective in Caribbean Hold’em is to beat your opponent, which in this game is the dealer. Players win if they have a better ranking hand than the dealer.

Players must use their chips (which range from $1 to $500 in value) to place an ante bet. Once a bet has been made, the player and dealer both receive two cards, with three community cards (the flop) in the center of the table.

Caribbean Hold'em

Caribbean Hold’em Gameplay

After checking their cards, players can fold or call. Folding will see a player surrender their ante bet. If they call, a player must place twice the original bet. Two more community cards are then dealt (turn and river cards). The dealer now shows their hand, and the player must use the community cards and those in their hand to form the best five-card poker hand they can.

The dealer must have a pair of 4s or better to qualify. If they fail to achieve this, players will win their ante bet, and additional bets are returned (push). If the dealer qualifies, the two hands are compared to determine who wins. If the player has a better hand, they win both their ante bet and their call bet. If the player loses, they lose both bets.

Call bets pay even money, but ante bets pay at 1:1 for a straight or lower, 2:1 for a flush, 3:1 for a full house, 10:1 for a four-of-a-kind, 20:1 for a straight flush, and 100:1 for a royal flush.

Players can choose to make progressive side-bets in Caribbean Hold’em. They win cash prizes of $75 (flush), $100 (full house), $500 (four-of-a-kind), 10% of the progressive (straight flush) or the progressive jackpot with a royal flush. Only the flop and the player’s two cards are considered for the five-card hand with the side-bet, which must be placed in the red marker spot before a new hand is played.

Craps

 
Craps is a casino favorite, despite being one of the more challenging games a player can try their hand at. Craps is a dice-based game, but it doesn’t have to be complex, and you can learn to play basic craps in mere moments.

How To Play Craps

Craps is a dice game and one where you can bet even if you aren’t necessarily the “shooter” (the one who rolls the dice). As you may have guessed, the main objective in craps is to predict what will show up on the two dice.
If the black OFF puck is on screen, a new betting round is set to begin, so players can place their bets down. The table features all the possible bets you can make, as well as your chip sizes. Players need to take their chips (which range from $1 up to $100) and place them on the part of the table containing the bet they wish to make.
 
Craps bets
 

Craps Gameplay

Most people opt for the Pass Line bet, so you can start by putting your chips on the Pass Line spot. The first roll begins and is known as the Come Out Roll. If a 7 or 11 occurs, you win. If a 2, 3 or 12 comes out, you lose. Should a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 appear, the Point Round begins. When the Point Round begins, the white ON puck appears on the number rolled. This is now the Point Number.

Players can bet on either 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 and will win if the shooter rolls them before a 7. However, if you’re the shooter, you can only win if you roll the Point Number again. Both the player and shooter will lose if a 7 is rolled before their bet or Point Number. Other bets can be placed, too, such as Field and specific dice combinations, but they are more complex.

Pass Line bets pay out at 1:1, as do Don’t Pass bets (if you want to bet against the shooter). After the Point Number has been established, players can win 2:1 with bets on a 4 or 10, 3:2 on a 5 or 9, and 6:5 on a 6 or 8, minus a 5% commission on Pass Line bets after the Point Number is established, of course.
