If you have ever paid a visit to one of the best casinos in Abuja, you will know that one of the most popular card games in the area is that of 3 card poker. The good news is that it is quite easy to learn how to play the game, and if you’re strategic enough and put what you have learned into  practice, it becomes easier and easier to win, although luck, of course,  is always a huge factor that you can only hope falls in your favor!

  • The Rules 

The main difference between 3 card poker and regular poker is the fact that you play against the dealer, as opposed to playing against a table full of other players. The game begins when the player places his bet. From there, the dealer will deal 3 cards – facing down – to everyone, including himself. Once you have looked at your cards, you will need to decide whether you wish to fold or raise the bet. Folding forfeits your bet, whereas raising means that you will make an additional play bet that is equal or higher than your original bet. After this, the dealer will turn over his cards. If he has queen-high or better, he qualifies and his hand is compared to yours. The best hand wins. If the player wins, the bets are paid evenly. If the hands tie, the player wins the hand. If the dealer does not qualify, you will win even money on the bet and the play bet is a push.
