Let It Ride is a popular card game that can be found at almost every online casino in the industry. Although Let It Ride is a form of poker, you don’t have to play against other players or the dealer, you opponent is the house.
If you are a fan of poker, then you will have no problem at all with Let It Ride. Let It Ride is played with a 52 card deck. Players start out by making 3 different bets of all the same amount. Then the dealer will deal out 3 cards to all players that will be face up. He will then deal two “Community” cards face down. The object of the game is to get at least a pair of 10′s. After the cards are dealt, and the players see their cards, they have the option of taking back one of their bets that they placed or continuing and letting it ride. They will then get to see one of the community cards when the dealer turns it over. You then again have the option of taking one of your bets back or continuing to let it ride once again. Finally, the dealer will turn over the second community card, where all players remaining will get to see their total poker hand, and get paid according to the pay table for the hand that they have.
Different casinos have different pay amounts, so it just depends on where you play on how much you can win per hand. Just like in poker, a pair will be the lowest paying amount, and a royal flush will be the highest hand that a player can have usually paying out 1000 to 1 or higher.
Some of the strategies in playing Let It Ride are as follows: You should only let it ride with your 3 cards if you have at least a pair of 10′s, 3 cards of the same suit, or 3 cards in numerical order for a chance at getting a straight. With four cards, four of the same suit, four cards in numerical order, or at least an already paying hand such as a pair of 10′s or better.
Some casinos do offer mini side bets. You can win on these side bets by the total value of all three of your cards, or you can win by getting a mini royal flush which is the Ace, King, and Queen of the same suit. Most casino software’s offer a progressive jackpot for the side bet.
All Let It Ride games have what they call a house edge. The house edge in Let It Ride depends on the possibility of getting certain hands and the pay table. A simple thing to also remember is that if you have at least a pair of 10′s, you already know that you are a winner. Having this hand already can give you the possibility of getting a better hand so you are able to raise your initial bets that have been made. You should also raise your initial wager if you have a mini flush or 3 cards in numerical order to make a possible straight or straight flush. Keeping these little tips in mind will give for the opportunity to maximize your wins.
