Each player plays only with the dealer and not against other players. The objective is to obtain the highest poker hand (containing at least a pair of tens) while keeping the maximum bet on the table.
A player begins each hand by placing an ante on the table which consists of three identical bets with an option of making an additional bet in order to qualify for a bonus. Six cards are dealt in total.
The first three cards are dealt to the player (face up) and the next three cards are placed in front of the dealer (face down). At this time, the player may choose to withdraw the first bet (Pull Bet) or keep it on the table (Let It Ride). The dealer then discards the fourth card and turns over the fifth card and the player must decide whether to Let It Ride or to pull the second bet after which the dealer finally turns over the sixth card and the hand is scored.
The player wins if the player’s hand qualifies with at least a pair of tens; the payoff is determined by the quality of the hand. Players can win a bonus on top of their payouts if they place the additional bet by drawing one of the following hands: Royal Flush, Straight Flush, Four of a Kind, Full House, Flush, Straight, or Three of a Kind.
