How to Play
Four Card Poker is a modified poker game where players have 3 different playing options and up to 4 different payment possibilities. The possibility of high payouts and a variety of different betting options make this game fun and enjoyable to play for even the most seasoned casino veteran. Four Card Poker is similar to Three Card Poker, but with one major difference, in Four Card Poker, players may bet up to three times their Ante when staying in the game. As well, a player’s hand that ties the dealer’s hand, also wins. Players receive 5 cards, but can only use 4 cards to create their best poker hand.
- Initially a player must decide if they wish to play their 4-card hand against the dealer, against a Table of Odds, or both.
- If they wish to play against the dealer, they place an ‘ante wager’.
- Once the player views their hand, they can either play by placing a ‘play wager’ equal to or up to three times their ante wager, or fold, forfeiting their ‘ante wager’.
- The dealer’s hand always qualifies. Players’ hand values are compared to the dealer’s hand. If a player’s hand ties or beats the dealer’s hand, they win on both the ‘ante wager’ and ‘play wager’. Additionally if the player has certain high value hands, they win a bonus amount depending on the value of their ‘ante wager’.
If the player decides to play against a Table of Odds only and not against the dealer, they place bet on the ‘Aces Up’ betting square only. If the hand contains a pair of aces or better, the player wins.
A player may take advantage of both betting options by placing an ‘ante wager’ and ‘Aces Up’ bet at the beginning of the game. Once they view their hand, they can either play, by placing a ‘play wager’ equal to or up to three times their ante wager, or fold, forfeiting their ‘ante wager’ and ‘Aces Up’ bet.
