General Rules of Play

Any incorrect number of cards dealt to either a Player or the Dealer constitutes a total misdeal. An exposed card DOES NOT constitute a misdeal. More than one card exposed during the dealing of the cards will constitute a misdeal. Any exposed Dealer card is a misdeal. Ace is high, except in 3-2-Ace sequence. Players cannot show their hands to other Players.

Allowable Wagers

Prior to the first card being dealt, each Player places a wager on the ANTE, in addition to an ANTE wager, Players have an option to place a PAIRPLUS wager. All ANTE or PAIRPLUS wagers must be placed prior to the Dealer announcing “No More Bets.” No wager shall be made, increased, decreased or withdrawn after the Dealer has announced “No More Bets. ”The PLAY wager must be exactly the same as the ANTE wager. Each Player may play only TWO betting positions. Only Players who are seated may wager at the game. Once a player has placed a wager and received cards, that Player must remain seated until the completion of the round of play.

If a player makes the ANTE and PLAY wagers, the Player may win a Bonus payout even if the Dealer’s hand beats the Player’s hand.
