Casino Games - Three Card Poker

three card poker casino gameThree card poker is one of the most popular modern casino table games. The game evolved from the British game of Brag which has been played as far back as the 16th century. However, it wasn’t until recently that the game made its way into the poker room at local casinos.


The rules of three card poker are quite straight forward. In basic terms there are two kinds of bets you can choose from: the ante and the pair plus. If you chose the ante, then you’re betting against the dealer. The pair plus bet, on the other hand, is independent of the dealer’s hand. The aim is to have a three card hand including a pair or higher. Your wager wins if you have a pair or better, and loses if you have less than a pair. The better the hand the more you win.


Probabilities of winning differ based on the hand played. A straight flush has a probability of 1 in 460, while the odds of 3 of a kind are 425. You have a 30 of hitting a Straight, 1 in 20 of a flush, and 1 in 5.9 for a pair.
