    In this exciting card game, the object is simply to get the best possible poker hand by using your three cards and two community cards, which the dealer will expose. You are not playing against the dealer or the other players.

    The Play

    Each player places three (3) equal bets as indicated on the layout and is dealt three cards. After looking at your three cards, you may ask for your first bet back or you may "Let It Ride." The dealer then turns up one community card. You may then ask for your second bet back or you may "Let It Ride." The second community card is then turned over by the dealer, and all winning hands are paid according to your final bet amount and the posted pay table (any pair of 10s or better).

  • Seven cards, two hands, big bucks.

    The object of the game is to use the seven cards dealt to make two separate poker hands, a five-card high hand and a two-card low hand.

    The Play

    The strategy is to make both hands as high as possible in poker value, with the two-card, low hand being of lesser value than the five-card, high hand. After all hands are set, each player's hand will play individually against the dealer's hand. The player's two-card hand will play against the dealer's two-card hand. The higher-ranking hand will win. The player's five-card hand will then play against the dealer's five-card hand. The higher-ranking hand will win. Both the high hand and the low hand must win for player to win their bet. A commission will be paid on winning Pai Gow hands. Both hands must lose for a player to lose their bet. If one hand wins, and one hand loses the hand will "push.”

    Players have THREE chances to win including the Fortune Bonus bet with a payout of up to $8,000, and an ENVY bet, are you envious of your playing partners hand, with the ENVY bet you will win off of all other players qualifying hands!

    It's ok to be envious!

    To play, players make a standard pai gow wager and the Fortune Bonus wager. If a player has wagered at least $5 on the Fortune Bonus, the dealer will place an "Envy" button next to his wager. The dealer then follows house procedures for Pai Gow poker. If a player's hand qualifies for payouts, the dealer pays him according to the posted paytable. The dealer pays any Envy Bonuses at the end of each round. If at least one player has a four-of-a-kind, all players with Envy buttons win. In the event that more than one player has at least a four-of-a-kind, all players with Envy buttons win multiple payouts. Note: A player cannot win Envy Bonuses for his own hand or the dealer's hand.

  • Three-card game, unlimited excitement!

    In 3-Card Poker, you are looking to make the best poker hand possible with three cards. You can choose to play this game against the dealer with an Ante bet. You can also bet on your own hand by placing a Pair Plus bet.

    The Play

    Player makes an Ante bet and may also place a Pair Plus bet. The dealer gives the player and himself three cards. The player examines his cards. The dealer's cards are kept face down. Any player making the Ante bet must either fold or raise a bet equal to his Ante. The dealer's hand qualifies with a queen high or better. If the dealer does not qualify, the player wins even money on the Ante bet and pushes the Play bet. If the dealer qualifies, the higher hand wins. If the player wins, his Ante and Play bets are paid even money. Ante players with three of a kind or higher will receive an Ante Bonus, regardless of the value of the dealer's hand. Pair Plus bets are paid entirely based on the poker value of the player's hand, per the posted pay table. Pair Plus bets are paid entirely based on the poker value of the player's hand, per the posted pay table.

  • Casino War - To the Victor Go the Spoils!

    The Game

    Casino War is the fastest, simplest table game to learn to play, and it's the best casino game for players to beat the dealer more than 50% of the time.

    The Play

    Simply make a bet in the marked area. You and the dealer each receive a card face up. If your card is higher than the dealer's, you win even money. If your card is lower, the dealer wins (Ace is high). If your card matches the dealer's in rank, you and the dealer "go to war" with an additional bet each. If you beat the dealer, you win his and your bets. If you tie, not only do you win, but you win extra!
