Let it Ride Poker

A casino table game that often has a progressive side bet, Let it Ride poker offers some of the biggest pay offs for a table game - up to 1000 to 1. The aim of the game is to get the best possible poker hand using your three cards and the dealers two cards.

When you play Let it Ride you have to place three equal bets on the table. You are then dealt three cards and can decide whether to leave all of your bets on the table or whether to remove one of them. The dealer then shows one card and again you can decide to leave your remaining bets or to remove one.

To win you need at least a pair of tens or better. As with normal poker hand rankings the royal flush is the highest possible hand. Each hand type has a different pay off. These are usually as follows;

  • Royal Flush - 1000 to 1
  • Straight Flush - 200 to 1
  • Four of a Kind - 50 to 1
  • Full House - 11 to 1
  • Flush - 8 to 1
  • Straight - 5 to 1
  • Three of a King - 3 to 1
  • Two Pairs - 2 to 1
  • Tens or Better - 1 to 1

There are various strategies when it comes to playing. A simple one if to only ever leave all three bets on the table if you have a pair of tens or better, three of a kind or a straight flush draw in your initial three cards. One of the good things abou the game is that you can bet big knowing that if your initial hand does not contain a winner that you can get back two thirds of the total bet.

You will often find that Let it Ride games also offer a jackpot side bet. In some cases this is a progressive jackpot and in other cases this is a fixed range of jackpots. For the progressive jackpot versions you will win 10% of the jackpot if you hit a straight flush and 100% of the jackpot if you hit a royal flush.

  • Royal Flush - £30,000
  • Straight Flush - £3000
  • Four of a Kind - £400
  • Full House - £200
  • Flush - £50
  • Straight - £25
  • Three of a Kind - £5

As you can see the side bet can lead to big wins. It should be noted however that the side bet does have quite a high house advantage when compared the to standard part of the game. It is a case of most of the time you will lose the £1 but if you get lucky and hit one of the better wins you will be happy you had the side bet on the table.

One final point to note is that you should always check the table limits. As a royal flush pays 1000 to 1 many casinos place a limit on the maximum table win. In the case of all most casinos this limit is 50,000 - still not a bad win in anyones books!
