The aim of Four Card Poker is to beat the house's four-card hand.
Start by placing a bet in the Ante bet area.
Once all bets have been made, you'll receive five cards and the house receives six.
Five of these six cards are dealt face down.
You may then choose one of the Play bets or fold.
The two Play bets available are:
If you decide to fold, you'll lose your Ante bet.
If you have any of the hands needed for the Ante bet, and a Play bet is made, you'll receive a payout regardless of the house's hand.
Ante Bonus payouts are multiples of the Ante bet.
If you make a Play bet, the house will reveal its cards and the best four-card hands are compared.
If you have a better hand than the house - or it's tied - the Ante and Play bets will pay out at a 1:1 ratio.
If the house has a better hand, you'll lose both Ante and Play bets.
Aces Up is an optional side bet.
You can only place an Aces Up bet after making an Ante bet but before the cards are dealt.
The Aces Up payout is based on your best hand.
It is evaluated regardless of whether you choose to place a Play bet or fold.
The payout ratios for the Aces Up side bet are as follows:
|Pair of Aces||1:1|
|Three of a Kind||7:1|
|Four of a Kind||50:1|
The payouts for the Ante Bonus are as follows:
|Three of a Kind||2x|
|Four of a Kind||25x|
From lowest to highest, here are the rankings for the available four-card hands:
|High Card||Hand is valued by highest-value card|
|Pair||Two cards of the same rank|
|Two Pair||Two cards of one matching rank, and another two cards of another matching rank|
|Straight||Four cards of sequential rank in at least two different suits|
|Flush||Four cards of the same suit|
|Three of a Kind||Three cards of a same rank|
|Straight Flush||Four cards in sequential rank, of the same suit|
|Four of a Kind||Four cards of the same rank|
