This game is based on Poker, and is played in some casinos!
Number of Players. The game can be played by up to seven players, plus the dealer, at a table similar to the one used for Black Jack. The layout has three circled areas for each player, who places three equal bets.
The standard 52-card pack is used.
The dealer gives three cards to each player, face down, one at a time. Two cards are then placed face down in front of the dealer, who does not receive a hand of three cards. The players do not play against the dealer. Their objective is merely to get a good poker hand by using their three cards plus the dealer's two face-down cards. At no time may a player show his hand to any of the other players.
After looking at the three face-down cards, the player may ask for his first bet back or may elect to "let it ride." One of the dealer's face-down cards is then turned up. The player may then ask for his bet back or, again, may "let it ride." The dealer's second face-down card is now turned up, and the players expose their cards. The dealer then pays out all winning hands according to the chart below.
