Let It Ride


Last updated: 2014-05-30

The objective is to obtain the highest poker hand (containing at least a pair of tens) using three cards dealt face-up to you and two cards dealt face-down to the dealer.

You qualify for a payoff if your hand contains at least a pair of tens; the payoff is determined by the quality of your hand (see payoff table below). You also win a bonus payout according to the payoff table if you have placed the additional bonus bet and you have one of the following hands: Royal Flush, Straight Flush, Four of a Kind, Full House, Flush, or a Straight.
