Letting the fun ride
by Jean Real

Have you ever heard of a casino game that lets you take back your bet in the middle of a game? Yes, its bizarre but those are actually the rules for Let It Ride, a popular casino game that has spread through the world and can now be found in more than 200 casinos worldwide. The game was invented by a gaming corporation called Shuffle Master. Let It Ride or Letem Ride is a simple variation of Poker but playing it does not involve the complexity and skill that normal Poker involves.

To play Let It Ride you must know just a few things about Poker. First of all, you need to understand the paytable. Winning hands are paid in the following order:

Royal Flush 250:1
Straight Flush 50:1
Four of a Kind 25:1
Full House 12:1
Flush 10:1
Straight 8:1
Three of a Kind 3:1
Two Pair 2:1
Tens or Better 1:1

Playing the game is very simple. You place 3 different bets on the table and are dealt 3 cards face up and 2 cards face down. The goal of the game is to complete the strongest 5-card (Poker Hand). After getting your three cards face up you can decide to leave or remove the second bet before seeing the fourth card. Same happens when you want to see the fifth card, you may leave your third bet on the table or take it back. Leaving the bets on the table is what they call letting it ride but you should only do this if you have good chances of completing a paying hand.

Here are a few tips to help you get the best results when you play Let It Ride at Superior Casino.

You should leave the second bet if you have on the first 3 cards the following hands:

Pair of 10s or better
Any 3 suited cards in a row
3 cards to a straight flush with one 10 or better card
3 to a Royal Flush

Let the third bet ride if you have with four cards any of the following hands:

Pair of 10s or better
4 to complete a Royal Flush
4 to a regular flush
4 cards to an open-ended straight (i.e. 4,5,6,7 you can either get a 3 or an 8 to complete the straight)
Any four cards over 10

Paigow poker has been one of the most recent games to enter mainstream casinos and since its recent appearance it has become one of the most popular casino games. The game originated in China and was originally played with tiles or dominoes. As the game was introduced in the West, variations started appearing until the Paigow was paired with Poker. Since 1987, when the game was introduced in Las Vegas and subsequently in Atlantic City, Paigow poker has become a standard casino game. Lets look into what it takes to win at Paigow Poker.

Easy playin
by Jean Real

Gambling always involves an element of chance but there are games in which your skill and decision play a role in the outcome of the game. In games like Blackjack, Let It Ride, Roulette and Three Card Poker you can reduce the risk of losing by applying optimal strategies that lower the house edge of the casino. Card-counting, betting structures and the like are some of the strategies you can use to play the skill games that casinos offer. However, there are days in which we want to gamble without having to concentrate ourselves too much. If you�ve had enough of slot machines you can try two table games that require NO SKILL whatsoever to play.

War:

This is perhaps the easiest casino game in the world. All you must do is place a bet and wait for a result that is as random as the flip of a coin. The objective of the game is simple enough, to the get the highest card; Ace being the highest and 2 the lowest. If the same value cards are dealt for both the player and the dealer, then the player has the option of doubling the bet to have another go at the duel. Superior Casino�s War table also has the option of betting for a tie, if there is a tie on the initial draw the tie bet pays 10 to 1.

Baccarat:

No matter what you�ve heard or read, there is no strategy that can help you win at Baccarat. The game is similar to War in the sense that you are betting on who will get the highest ranking cards. The difference however is that Baccarat allows you to bet on the Banker (or dealer) side while on War you always bet for your hand. In Baccarat each card has its face value except Jacks, Queens, Kings and Tens that have a value of zero. The goal of the game is to come closest to the sum of nine with two or three cards. If the sum of two cards goes over 10, then simply deduct ten to arrive at the hand�s value. For example: 8 + 7 = 15, in Baccarat that would be a 5 point value. Two 5�s will have a zero point value. Bets placed on the player�s hand will pay 2:1, while bets on the banker�s hand pay 2:1 minus a 5% commission. Here again you may bet on the tie which will pay you 9:1. It�s completely a matter of chance who will win so your guess is as good as anybody else�s.
