Vegas Three Card Rummy at the Online
One of the exciting games you can play at the online casino is Vegas
Three Card Rummy. It is a game based on Gin Rummy where low scores are
the best. Letís take a look at this game that can be played at InterCasino.
Vegas Three Card Rummy uses a normal 52-card deck and cards are ranked
normally except that aces are always low. Your goal as a player is to
have fewer points than the dealer.
Play begins by making an ante bet plus an optional bonus bet. The player
and the dealer get three cards each. The dealerís cards are dealt face
down. Aces are 1 points, 2 to 10 count as their face value and face
cards are 10 points. If you have a pair, three of a kind or suited cards
- two or three in a run then they are worth zero points. After the deal
the player has a choice of raising or folding. With a raise an additional
bet equal to the ante is made. The dealer then turns over his cards
and he must have 20 points or less to qualify. If he doesnít qualify
then the ante bets pay off at even money and raise bets are a push.
If the dealer qualifies then the hands are compared and the lower total
wins. If the player wins then the ante pays even money but the raise
bet pays according to a specific table with a point total of zero paying
4 to 1, a point total of 1 to 5 paying 2 to 1 while anything 6 or more
is paid at even money. If the player loses then the ante and raise bets
lose. There is also a pay table for the bonus bet.
The optimal strategy has you folding if you have 21 points or more
while if you have 20 points or less you should raise.
