4-Card Poker is a game that features three ways to play-against the dealer, against a pay table or both. Players use their best four of five cards dealt and the dealer uses the best four of six cards. Wagers must be made in increments of $5.
RANKING OF HANDS:
4-of-a-Kind / Straight Flush / 3-of-a-Kind /Flush / Straight / 2 Pair / Pair / High Card
Note: If a hand does not contain a pair or better, the hand that contains the highest ranking card(s) wins. Ace is high except in 4-3-2-A sequence.
PLAYING AGAINST THE DEALER—ANTE
This is a bet that the player’s 4-card hand will beat the dealer’s 4-card hand. If once the player looks at their hand, they believe it can beat the dealer’s hand, a second bet called the Play Bet must be made. The Play Bet must be 1 to 3 times the Ante. The Ante and Play each are paid 1 to 1 when they win. The player wins ties.
Players who place an Ante and Play wager win an automatic bonus payout on the Ante wager for the following premium hands. Automatic bonuses are paid even if the dealer has a better four-card hand.
4-of-a-Kind 25 to 1
Straight Flush 20 to 1
3-of-a-Kind 2 to 1
PLAYING AGAINST THE PAY TABLE—ACES UP
The object of betting the Aces Up wager is to receive a pair of Aces or better. If a hand contains a pair of Aces or better, the player wins the Aces Up wager. Players receive Aces Up payouts regardless of the dealer’s hand.
THE PAYOUTS FOR THE ACES UP WAGER ARE:
Four-of-a-Kind 50 to 1
Straight Flush 40 to 1
Three-of-a-Kind 8 to 1
Flush 5 to 1
Straight 4 to 1
Two Pair 3 to 1
PROGRESSIVE JACKPOT WAGER
The Progressive Jackpot Wager is an optional $5 side bet that must be made prior to the delivery of any cards. Progressive winners are determined from all five cards dealt to the player. To begin each round, players must make their regular game’s wager. Players must place the progressive wagers on the sensor in front of their betting position. The sensor will light up to indicate the wager has been accepted. Folded hands do not qualify for progressive payouts but you may still qualify for an envy bonus. If another player at the table hits a hand associated with an envy pay, all other players who made the progressive side bet win the envy pay.
