Betting Area / Rules
Individual player positions have spots representing the card ranks, the bonus side bet and jackpot
bet. Players may make any combination of bets. Each individual bet must be at least the table minimum.
Once all players have made their bets, the dealer shuffles the deck, or takes a shuffled
deck out of the shuffler, and spreads the the deck between the player's bets and the chip rack. One
player is given a stylus to use to select four cards. After the cards are selected, the dealer will
put the remaining cards in the discard rack, and turn over the first three selected cards.
Alternatively, the dealer will provide, or use, a cut card, then select the top 4 cards.
After examining the first three cards, the dealer will take all losing bets and pay the winners.
If the first three cards result in a straight flush or three of a kind, the dealer will
turn over the fourth card, which is only used to resolve the jackpot side bet.
If the first three cards had a pair or better (a side bet winner), the same player is offered
the option of selecting again for the next round, even if they didn't bet on the side bet.
If the jackpot side bet is not being offered, only three cards are selected.
The deck is used once, then gets reshuffled.
This game can be played on a BlackJack size table, like the 5 player sample shown here.
The game can also be plaed on a larger table, with larger community betting positions, similar
to a Big Six table, like either example shown here.
As is customary for many table games, players never touch the cards. A designated player
is provided a stylus to select the cards used to determine the outcomes.
The styli shown here are merely the barrel of a standard issue casino ball point pen - with
the guts removed. Insert a foam ear plug, and a stylus is born.
Some casino gift shops have pens with stylus tips. If one of those is used, be sure it's
the type with the stylus at the top of the pen rather than at the writing tip, otherwise you may
end up with marked cards.
Alternatively, the dealer can offer a player a cut card to cut the deck, then use the first
4 cards to determine the winners. Of course, the dealer can cut the cards herself if the casino prefers.
