    Three Card Poker - How to Play

    Test your nerve against the dealer and see if you can better their three-card hand.

    Place an Ante bet to start the game.

    You and the dealer will then receive three cards - the dealer's are dealt face down.

    Once you've received your cards, you an either surrender your Ante bet and fold or select Play to place a bet equal to it.

    If you choose the latter, the dealer reveals their cards. 

    Should their hand feature a Queen high or better, it gets evaluated against your hand according to the hand rankings.

    You'll lose your Ante bet and Play bet if the dealer has the better hand.

    If you have the better hand, you receive both your Ante bet and Play bet, paid out at 1:1.
