Three Card Poker


Three Card Poker is a very simple game, but it goes fast and can be very addicting.   Although at first many online casinos didn’t have Three Card Poker as one of their games, more and more are now including it, as it has turned out to be very popular with many gamblers.


Three Card Poker is basically played in two different versions: PairPlus, and Ante and Play. 


  • PairPlus – PairPlus is the simplest version of Three Card Poker.  In this game you ante a certain amount, and then you are dealt three cards.  You are paid, or not paid, according to what hand you are dealt.  Anything less than a pair is a loss – you lose your ante.  If you are dealt a pair, (two of the same number cards or face cards) you break even, meaning that you get your ante back.  Two pair and full house are not possible winning hands in this game, since to have either of those you would need more than three cards.  The next highest hand you can get is a flush, which are three cards of the same suit.  A flush pays four to one.  If you ante one dollar and are dealt a flush, you would win four dollars.  In Three Card Poker, a flush is easier to get than a straight, so your next highest hand after a flush would be a straight, which is a consecutive run of cards, such as two, three, four, or Jack, Queen, King.  A straight pays six to one.  Also different from regular poker is that three of a kind is harder to get than a straight, so three of a kind is the next highest hand that you can be dealt.  A three of a kind pays thirty to one.  The highest possible hand that you can be dealt is a straight flush, which would be three consecutive cards of the same suit, such as a seven of hearts, an eight of hearts, and a nine of hearts.  This best possible hand pays forty to one, so if you ante one dollar and get this hand, you will win forty dollars!  As simple as PairPlus is to play, many gamblers love it for its fast pace and unpredictable outcomes.

  • Ante and Play – With the Ante and Play version of Three Card Poker, the player gets to do a little more than just see what hand he or she is dealt. In Ante and Play, you are playing against the dealer.  First, you ante a certain amount, and then you are dealt your three cards.  You decide if you want to fold your hand, or raise.  Raising would mean betting an amount equal to the ante. You do not get to see the dealer’s hand before you do this.  If you decide to raise, then the dealer is dealt three cards.  The dealer must have a queen or higher to qualify; if the dealer has less than this, then you automatically win.  Otherwise, whoever wins depends on who has the highest hand.  There is no more betting after the dealer is dealt three cards.  If the dealer qualifies and has a better hand, you lose your ante and your raise.  If the dealer qualifies and you have a better hand, you are paid depending on your hand.  Simply having a higher hand, such as if you have a king and the dealer only has a queen, means that your win will be one to one.  If you win with a pair or a straight, it is also usually one to one.  A three of a kind, however, pays four to one, and a straight flush pays five to one.


Playing Three Card Poker in an online casino can be a great way to engage in some fast action, and possibly win quite a bit of money.  If Three Card Poker is what you are looking for, be sure to check the online casinos you are interested in to make sure that the game is offered there.  More often than not, it will be.
