How To Play
Raise It Up Stud Poker is a six-card poker game that combines the player’s three cards with three community cards to make the best possible five-card poker hand. Since there is no dealer hand, players are playing against a Paytable.
To begin play, players must make equal bets on the Ante and Blind. They may also make the optional Pairs Plus wager. After looking at their cards, players have a choice to make: They may either check or make a play bet of 3x their Ante. The dealer will then reveal the first community card. Players who have not yet made a Play bet may check or make a Play bet of 2x their Ante. The dealer will then reveal the second community card; all players who have not yet acted may now fold or make a play bet of 1x their Ante. The dealer will then reveal the third community card and, afterward, begin settling all bets beginning with the Pairs Plus. It the player’s three-card hand contains a pair or better, the Pairs Plus bet wins; otherwise, it loses. The dealer will then resolve the Play, Ante and Blind bets by combining the player’s three cards with the three community cards. If the hand contains a pair of 10’s or better, the Ante, Play and Blind bets win and are paid according to the Paytables; with less than a pair of 10’s, they lose.
