Tri Card Poker

Tri-Card Poker online at offers you three separate ways to win with standard play payouts, Ante bonuses, and Pairs Plus payouts. In the Tri Card Poker Ante and Raise game, all you need to do is get a higher hand than the dealer. In the Pairs Plus game, bet on getting a hand with a pair or better. You can bet in both or one of the games, and your wagers don’t need to be the same amount.

How to Play Tri Card Poker

Tri-Card Poker is an innovative casino table game played between the player and the Dealer with a standard 52-card deck. There are two betting schemes offered in the game: standard play and Pairs Plus. In the standard game, just try to make a better poker hand than the Dealer. In Pairs Plus you are betting on whether you are dealt a pair or a higher valued set, such as a Straight or Flush.

Player’s Turn

Click on the chip amount that you want to bet, which will automatically be placed as your Ante wager. If you want to play Pair Plus, click the Pair Plus diamond and then the chips you want to bet. Click Deal to begin the round of play. You will be dealt three cards face up and the Dealer will be dealt three cards face down. Click Raise to double your Ante bet if you think you have a higher hand than the Dealer. Click Fold if you don’t, ending the current game and forfeiting all of your wagers.

Dealer’s Turn

After your round of Raising, the Dealer reveals their cards. The Dealer must have a Queen or higher to qualify and continue playing. The hands are compared, and if the Dealer has the highest hand, you lose both your Ante and Raise bets. If the Dealer does not have at least a Queen, then the Dealer defaults. You are paid even money on the Ante bet and the Raise is returned as a push.

How to Win?

If your Tri-Card Poker hand outranks the Dealer’s hand, or if you Raise and the Dealer does not qualify because they don’t have at least a Queen, you win. You win the Pair Plus if you are dealt a pair or higher.
