High Card Flush is an exciting game for players of all levels. After a player checks their seven cards they can make bigger wagers with bigger flushes, additionally play the Bonus wagers to win big on big flushes and straight flushes.
To play the game the player makes the mandatory Ante wager; at this time the player can also make the optional Flush and Straight Flush wagers. All players and the Dealer will receive seven cards facedown. The players will evaluate their hands for the number of cards in the biggest flush (2-3-4-5-6- or 7-card flush). Each player will also evaluate their hand for the highest ranking card in the biggest flush. For example a five card flush beats a four card flush. When both flushes have the same amount of cards you go to the highest ranking card to determine the winner. For example Q-10-5-2 beats J-9-5-3. Straight flushes do not increase the value of the hand, only high cards.
Prior to placing a Raise wager, players are required to discard any cards not included in the flush with the most cards. Discards are placed facedown on the table in the area adjacent to the Straight Flush wager spot, with one exception. Players who are discarding a straight flush and have placed a Straight Flush wager are required to discard their cards faceup in the area adjacent to the Straight Flush wager. This is to alert the dealer to their winning Straight Flush wager. Players then place their cards with the flush containing the most cards facedown on the Raise wager spot and place their Raise wager on the cards. Additionally, if a player chooses to fold their hand prior to placing a Raise wager but would still like to be paid for a Straight Flush wager, the player must discard their cards faceup on the table. There is no recourse for players who discard the wrong cards.
Each player has the option to raise or fold. If the player folds they surrender their Ante wager. If the player wants to play against the Dealer they will place a Raise wager. The player’s Raise wager amount is determined by the number of cards in the player’s biggest flush. The table below lists the Raise wager amounts.
PLAYER HAND / RAISE AMOUNT
- 2, 3 or 4 card Flush / 1x Ante wager
- 5 card Flush / Up to 2x the Ante wager
- 6 or 7 card flush / Up to 3x the Ante wager
If the Dealer’s hand does not qualify with a three card flush, nine high, the player’s Ante wager is paid 1 to 1 and the Raise wager is a push.
If the Dealer qualifies and the player’s hand is higher ranking than the Dealer’s hand, the player’s Ante and Raise wagers are paid 1 to 1. If the player’s hand is lower ranking than the Dealer’s hand, the player loses both the Ante and Raise wagers. If the player’s hand and the Dealer’s hand are identical, the Ante and Raise wagers are a push.
Winning Flush and Straight Flush wagers are paid regardless of the outcome of the hand or if the player folds.
