Multi-hand 3 card poker rules

To begin, a bet must be made by the player, and there are two places to do so. The ante bet spot, and the pairs plus bet spot. The ante spot is where your standard bet is to be placed, this bet is only to receive the three cards, so think of it as a kind of playing fee. If you choose to bet on the pairs plus spot, you'll need to pick up a pair in your hand, or you'll lose your pairs plus bet. The player is then dealt three cards.

Once you have received your three cards, you must decide whether to play or fold. If you fold you will lose your ante bet. Should you choose to play, you'll need to put a wager down in the location marked as "play". For the dealer to win, they must have a Queen high or better, if the dealer fails to achieve such a hand, then you'll pick up your ante bet, regardless of what cards you hold, along with your play bet. If their hand does qualify, then both of your bets are now in play. Obviously, the player with the better hand, wins.
