FOUR CARD POKER HAND RANKING
Four of a Kind
Three of a Kind
This game starts with the players placing bets in the Ante spots in the table layouts. The players get five cards down; the dealer gets five cards face down and one card face up. The players all look at their hands and decide if their best FOUR card hand can beat the dealers best FOUR card hand. The player then decides whether or not to make a "play" wager or fold the hand. The play wager has to be at least equal to the ante wager or may be 2x or 3x the ante wager. The dealer then turns over his cards and plays his best FOUR card hand. Best FOUR card hand wins. The player wins ties. Automatic bonuses will be paid on the ante bet for hands containing either 3 of a kind, a straight flush or 4 of a kind regardless of the dealer's hand.
ACES UP STRATEGY
Bet on the Aces Up spot and win when you're dealt a pair of Aces or better. The Aces Up bonus is always paid even if the dealer has a better hand. Odds are paid on the Aces Up bet based on the hand.
