The Vegas Three Card Rummy

If you have ever spent much time dealing with gambling or running into the world of Las Vegas much, you will no doubt have heard of the term Three Card Rummy at one point. It’s a rather challenging concept for those who aren’t used to it, but it can be one of the most enjoyable aspects of being involved in gambling within the city. It’s a very typical game that does play a lot like typical casino poker, and it’s enjoyed because of its rather interesting style when compared to many more typical casino games out there.

This game itself makes a really nice change of pace for those who are used to the typical Vegas games, and this will give you all the help that you need to understand just how fun cards can be if you’ve never really played too much – or at all. If you have never played the game before then the rules can be a bit daunting but you can pick them up with just a few hours of practice and knowledge about how it actually works. Here is a brief rundown of the rules of Three Card, and how it operates typically in a game;

  • You start off by choosing between either an ante bet, or a bonus bet – ante bets are always the best option, though!
  • Then you and the dealer are dealt three cards; the dealer with their cards face down
  • Then, you need to figure out what your score is – Aces, for example, are worth one point. A face card is worth 10, and anything else is given a value based on its rank within the pack
  • You want to have a lower score than the dealer; however, a consecutive card and a three of a kind card set is actually worth 0 to you so this can be the key to winning with this rather interesting game
  • You then raise or fold your cards once you see them; if the dealer has more than 20pts, they cannot qualify
  • The key here is to raise when you 20 or fewer points on the board
  • It can be a big confusing at first, of course, but you will effectively just be trying to mimic the strategy of the dealer; your mistakes typically come from just a case of miscalculating the number that you are actually in possession of!

It’s a difficult game to get used but once you get there it can be incredibly fun to play, giving you all the help that you need to truly understand just how the game works and how you can get used to the way that it operates in general.
