Let It Ride Rules and Tips

Let It Ride is one of the newest and most popular games available online.
Let It Ride is played on a blackjack-like table with, of course, a shuffling machine. It is an unusual type of poker game where you put up all your bets before the first cards are dealt and then you can pull your bets back one-by-one if you don’t like the way your hand develops. If you do like the cards, you just let your bets ride, as indicated by the name of the game. You can also make an optional side bet to qualify for an additional bonus payout.The game is easy to learn. Winning hands are based on the standard poker hands, and there are no wild cards. However, unlike blackjack and regular poker, you don’t play against the dealer or the other players at the table. Instead, the value of your final hand is determined by a fixed payout schedule. Consequently, the bluffing and normal playing strategies that are used in traditional poker games do not apply.

It’s easy to play. The dealer gives each player three cards and deals himself two. You use your cards as well as the dealer’s. The best part of this game is you can make three bets, and if you don’t like your cards you can pull two of them back!

How To Play: You Win With A Pair of Tens or Better!
Bets: Each player places three equal bets as indicated: $1 or £1
The Deal: Each player receives three cards.
The Play: You are not playing against the dealer or the other players. You are simply trying to get the best possible poker hand by using your three cards and two cards, called community cards,which the dealer will expose.
After looking at your first three cards, you may ask for your first bet back or you may Let It Ride.
The dealer then turns up one community card. You may then ask for your second bet back or you may Let It Ride.
The second community card is then turned over by the dealer. At this point, all winning hands are paid according to the payout schedule on the table layout (pair of 10’s or better, two pair, etc).
Players cannot show their hands to other players.
