Gold Series 3 Card Poker
Once you try the Gold Series 3 Card Poker game that is found exclusively in Microgaming powered online casinos you will never go back to any other version, as this one boasts state of the art graphics, easy to navigate controls and it offers a smooth game play which you should appreciate.
The game is the suped up version of Microgamings original 3 Card Poker game which for all intents and purposes has the same game play structure and payouts, the major difference being the excellent look and feel of the game.
Like the earlier version this one is played with one full deck of 52 playing cards, and as is standard these cards will always be shuffled before a new hand is dealt out.
You can choose to play either the Ante game on its own or the Pairs Plus game on its own, or should you wish to push the boat out and go for gold then how about combining them and playing them both at the same time!How To Play 3 Card Poker Gold Series
The Ante game will require you to place any amount on the table to set the game under way and currently the minimum stakes permitted are 1.00 and the maximum per hand dealt is currently 200.00
Simply select the stakes you wish to play for by clicking on the chip values and then point and click on the Ante box to lay your chips onto the table, next simply give the Deal button a click and you will be dealt out 3 face up cards and then the Dealers 3 cards and dealt face downwards.
Next you have two options, should you feel your hand is not good enough to continue then click Fold and your stake is lost and the game will end once the Dealers cards are revealed.
Should you consider your hand is good enough to possibly beat the Dealers unseen hand then click Play and another wager will be placed onto the table for you this will be equal to the amount of your Ante wager, and then the Dealers cards will be shown.
If once revealed, the Dealers hand does not qualify (by getting a Queen or higher ranked hand) then you Ante wager is paid out at the odds of 1 to 1 and your Play wager will be deemed to be a push and it will be returned to you.
If the Dealers hand Qualifies (meaning he gets at least a Queen or higher ranked hand) then the highest ranked hand will be deemed to be the winner.3 Card Poker Gold Series Payouts
There are a few different payouts paid when your hand beats the Dealers and these are as follows: A Highest Card Hand, a Pair or a Flush will see both your Ante and Play wagers being paid out at odds of 1 to 1, but should you have been dealt a Straight Hand then you get paid a further payout of 1 to 1 on your Play Wager, If you have been dealt a Three of a Kind then your Play wager will be paid out at odds of 4 to 1, or if you are holding a Straight Flush and the Dealers Hand has Qualified then your Ante wager is paid out at odds of 40 to 1.
Be aware that your Pair Plus wager can be played either as a stand alone bet without the need to place an Ante wager or you may place it as an additional stand alone wager to compliment the Ante wager.
The Pairs Plus wager will cost you a minimum of 1.00 and a maximum of 200.00, and all you need to do to win is to get dealt a hand which contains a Pair or higher in ranking, the Dealer does not need to Qualify for you to win this hand, and it doesn't matter if the Dealers hand is higher ranked than yours, as long as you have been dealt a Pair or better then your Pair Plus wager will win.
The payouts that are awarded on the Pairs Plus wager are: a Pair pays Even Money (1:1), a Flush will payout at odds of 4 to 1, a Straight pays 6 to 1, Three of a Kind pays 30 to 1 and a Straight Flush pays 40 to 1.
