How To Play: Let It Ride

LET IT RIDE – a variation of Poker

The objective of the game for the Player is to obtain a five card poker hand which is ranked as a pair of 10’s or better. A hand of lesser value will lose and all bets wagered will be taken by the Dealer.

Players are only permitted to wager on one betting area.

A Player wishing to participate in a round of play must place three equal but separate wagers on the appropriate wagering area marked '$', '2' and '1' prior to the first card being dealt for each round of play.

A Player may also place a “Progressive Jackpot wager” provided the Player has placed the '1', '2' and '$' wagers.

Starting from the Dealer’s left and continuing clockwise, the Dealer shall deal three cards face down to each betting area containing a wager.

The Dealer shall then deal two Community cards face down in the designated area of the layout for the Community cards.

Players will then view their cards, and starting from the Dealer’s left and continuing clockwise, the Dealer shall ask each Player whether the Player wishes to withdraw the wager placed on the wagering area marked '1' or “Let It Ride”.

If a Player chooses to “Let It Ride”, the wager placed on the wagering area marked '1' must stay in play until the conclusion of that round of play.

If a Player chooses to withdraw the wager placed on the wagering area marked '1', the Dealer shall return the wager to the Player.

When each Player has made a decision on the wager placed on the wagering area marked '1', the Dealer will turn over the first Community card.

After the first Community card is exposed, starting from the Dealer's left and continuing clockwise, the Dealer shall ask each Player whether the Player wishes to withdraw the wager placed on the wagering area marked '2' or “Let It Ride”.

If a Player chooses to “Let It Ride”, the wager placed on the wagering area marked '2' must stay in play until the conclusion of that round of play.

If a Player chooses to withdraw the wager placed on the wagering area marked '2', the Dealer shall return the wager to the Player.

When each Player has made a decision on the wager placed on the wagering area marked '2', the Dealer will turn over the second Community card.

The wager placed on the wagering area marked '$' by the Player may not be withdrawn, and must be played.

When the second Community card has been exposed, the Dealer shall, starting from the Dealer's left and continuing clockwise, turn over the Player’s 3 cards and determine if it is a winning hand when combined with the 2 Community cards.

In order to have a winning hand, the Player must have a 5 card poker hand that contains a pair of 10’s or better.

All seated Players who have wagered on the Progressive Jackpot shall receive an “Envy Bonus” in the event that any Player with a “$” wager (with or without a “2” or “1” wager) obtains a “Royal Flush” or “Straight Flush”.
