Vegas Three Card Rummy at the Online Casino
One of the exciting games you can play at the online casino is
Vegas Three Card Rummy. It is a game based on Gin Rummy where
low scores are the best. Letís take a look at this game that can
be played at InterCasino.
Vegas Three Card Rummy uses a normal 52-card deck and cards are
ranked normally except that aces are always low. Your goal as
a player is to have fewer points than the dealer.
Play begins by making an ante bet plus an optional bonus bet.
The player and the dealer get three cards each. The dealerís cards
are dealt face down. Aces are 1 points, 2 to 10 count as their
face value and face cards are 10 points. If you have a pair, three
of a kind or suited cards - two or three in a run then they are
worth zero points. After the deal the player has a choice of raising
or folding. With a raise an additional bet equal to the ante is
made. The dealer then turns over his cards and he must have 20
points or less to qualify. If he doesnít qualify then the ante
bets pay off at even money and raise bets are a push. If the dealer
qualifies then the hands are compared and the lower total wins.
If the player wins then the ante pays even money but the raise
bet pays according to a specific table with a point total of zero
paying 4 to 1, a point total of 1 to 5 paying 2 to 1 while anything
6 or more is paid at even money. If the player loses then the
ante and raise bets lose. There is also a pay table for the bonus
The optimal strategy has you folding if you have 21 points or
more while if you have 20 points or less you should raise.
