Aces.com one of the first to offer 'Three Card Poker'
Friday 27th January 2006
One of the most popular new cards game in land-based Las Vegas casinos – ‘Three Card Poker’ – has hit the Internet at Aces.com. The game is essentially a simplified version of poker and has been designed for players who find regular poker rules and strategy a bit daunting.
Three Card Poker is essentially two games in one: “PairPlus” and “Ante and Play”. Players can bet on either one or both, and in different amounts.
PairPlus is a simple game in which players are dealt three cards and are paid according to their value. There is no raising or discarding. It doesn’t matter if the dealer qualifies or even beats the player’s hand, or if the player has placed a bet on the Ante Game. If their hand has a pair or better they win. On the other hand, ‘Ante and Play’ begins with a wager on the ante. After viewing their three cards, players can either raise by putting an equal bet on play, or fold and lose the ante bet.
“No other online casino looks and feels as much like Las Vegas as ours,” says Aces.com Manager Rene Queseda, “So naturally we’re one of the first online casinos to offer the most popular new game in Vegas.”
