Trying out a new table game at the casino can be intimidating. The rules aren’t always easy to follow, there’s usually some strategy involved, and everyone at the table is waiting for you to make your decision. But you don’t have to worry about any of those things when you play Tri Card Poker at Bovada Casino. If you’re familiar with the standard poker hand rankings, you should be an expert player by the time you finish reading this article.

That’s because Tri Card Poker is one of the easiest games you’ll ever play. It’s just you versus the Dealer. After you place your Ante, you get three cards face-up, and the Dealer gets three cards face-down. If you like your hand, press Raise to double your bet, and the Dealer’s cards are turned over to see who wins. If you don’t like your hand, just press Fold and surrender your original bet. Simple, right?


Three Cards, No Waiting

The strategy for Tri Card Poker is simple, too: Raise when you hold at least Queen-Six-Four, and fold everything else. This strategy will narrow the house edge on your combined Ante and Raise bets to the minimum 3.37% for this game. If that’s still too much to remember, just play anything Queen-High or better. It’s close enough.

Need a little extra action on the side? The Pair+ bet in Tri Card Poker gives you more ways to win, at an even lower house edge of 2.32% when you play at Bovada Casino. The payouts in Tri Card Poker go up when you’ve got a strong hand, with the biggest payout being 40-to-1 for a straight flush – that’s three consecutive cards of the same suit. And you don’t need a special strategy for Pair+, since it doesn’t matter what the Dealer’s hand is. You get paid no matter what, as long as you have at least a pair.

If this sounds like the game for you, give Tri Card Poker a spin by using the Practice Mode at Bovada Casino. Play as many hands as you like for free to get your feet wet, and as always, best of luck at the tables.
