HOW TO PLAY LET IT RIDE POKER

Easy to play with a linked progressive wager

Let It Ride Poker appeals to a large audience because of its ease of play. The game is played with one deck of cards and up to seven players. The object of the game is to create the best poker hand possible out of your three cards and two community cards. The better the poker hand, the bigger the payout.

Playing Let it Ride Poker

Players place three equal bets in the circles directly in front of them. They also have the option to place the $1 progressive wager for the chance to win a multi-table progressive jackpot! Finally, a three-card bonus wager may be placed giving players an opportunity to win at odds up to 40 to 1, based on the three cards they hold while playing Let It Ride.

The dealer distributes three cards face- down to each player and the same to himself. The dealer then spreads out his three cards face-down and burns (discards) the bottom card; the remaining two community cards will be used to complete the players' five-card poker hands. The dealer will wave his hand, indicating that players can now look at their three-card hands.

You will be asked in rotation if you would like to pull the first of the three wagers back or Let It Ride. Your decision is based on judgment as to whether a winning hand can be developed from the three cards currently held and the two community cards, yet to be exposed. You will signal the dealer by lightly scratching the cards on the table if the wager should be pushed out of play, or by tucking the cards under the wager indicating that you wish to Let It Ride.

After all players have been asked in order about the first wager, the dealer then turns the first community card face up for all to see. You will be asked in rotation if you would like to pull the second wager back or Let It Ride.

Your decision is, again, based on judgment as to whether a winning hand can be developed using the three cards in hand along with the one exposed dealer card and the remaining unexposed community card. Once again, you will signal the dealer by scratching the cards on the table if the wager should be pushed out of play, or by tucking the cards under the wager indicating that you wish to Let It Ride.

After all players have made a decision on the second wager, cards are tucked under the third wager, which must remain. The dealer then turns the second community card face-up. 

The dealer exposes the players’ cards, in rotation, starting with the furthest to the right. The best poker hand that can be developed using the players’ three cards, along with the community cards, is determined. The hand is paid based on the pay table for Let It Ride and the Progressive or Envy Bonus. The three original cards will then be reviewed to determine any payouts due for the Three-Card Bonus if that option had a wager placed.

Multi-Link Progressive Wager

Look for this exciting side bet on the Four Card Poker, Ultimate Texas Hold ’Em and Let it Ride Poker tables, connecting the three into one combined progressive jackpot. A total of eight tables will participate.

How it works: Simply place the optional $1 progressive side bet before the deal for the chance to win a portion of—or possibly the entire—jackpot.

The progressive wager pays when a player holds a three-of-a-kind or higher. And if you’re lucky enough to hold a royal flush, you’ll win 100% of the pot! Even the other players at a major jackpot-winning table will walk away with something substantial (if they’ve placed the progressive wager); a Royal Flush or Straight Flush awards an Envy bonus of $1,000 or $300, respectively.

This new wager is your chance to play for more money—and to win more often! Ask a table games floor supervisor or dealer for additional information or qualifications.
