Basic Outline of sidebet rules / how to play

Three Card Whist is a casino table game played with one standard pack of playing cards without jokers.


The Player competes against the Dealer and not against other Players. One to six Players can play each round.


Each Player and the Dealer are dealt three cards per round. An additional card is dealt face up and its suit becomes the trump suit. Any card that is the same suit as the trump suit is a trump card


The cards are ordered by rank, with Deuce low and Ace high. A card of the same suit as another card but of higher rank, beats that card.


A trump card always beats a card that is not of the same suit as the trump suit.


The Dealer reveals his three cards sequentially.


If the Player plays a card that beats the current Dealer card, the Player wins a trick. The Player tries to win as many tricks as possible against the three Dealer cards.


There is an additional Bonus Bet wager available to the Player each round. The Bonus Bet wager is independent of the main game of Three Card Whist. The resolution of the Bonus Bet wager depends solely on the Player’s three cards and the initial trump card.
