How to Play Let ‘Em Ride Poker
Let ‘Em Ride Poker is also referred to as Let It Ride. Some classify the online version as Let ‘Em Ride Poker, and the land based version as Let It Ride. They are both very very close however there are some small differences. The game offers some really neat features, players love this game because it is ultra simple and it offers high payouts. Another great feature is that the game lets the players pass on bets when they don’t agree with their hand and make wagers on hands they are satisfied with. The game is played with a standard deck of 52 cards and the aim of the game is to get the best five card poker hand available. For those who are not familiar with poker hands, here is a list of those;
A straight from a ten to an ace with all five cards of the same suit.
Any straight with all five cards of the same suit.
Four of a Kind
Any four cards of the same rank. If two players share the same Four of a Kind, the bigger fifth card (known as the kicker) decides who wins the pot.
Any three cards of the same rank together with any two cards of the same rank.
Any five cards of the same suit. The highest card of the five determines the rank of the flush.
Any five consecutive cards of different suits. Aces can count as either a high or a low card.
Three of a Kind
Any three cards of the same rank.
Any two cards of the same rank together with another two cards of the same rank. Our example shows the best possible two-pair, Aces and Kings. The highest pair of the two determines the rank of the two-pair.
Any two cards of the same rank.
Any hand not in the above-mentioned hands.
The player will begin the game with making their first bet, in most casinos a circle on the table will be marked for the player to place their bet. The game of Let ‘Em Ride also gives the player the option to make a $1.00 bet on a progressive jackpot, at this time is when the player will also get in on that. From there, three cards are dealt out face up in front of the player an two cards face down in front of himself. The player will then look at their cards and decide if they would like to make an additional bet or continue the game without making a bet at this time. From there the dealer will show his final face down card, now there will be five cards face up in the middle of the table, these will represent the five card poker hand.
