Free Let It Ride
Let It Ride is a good introduction to casino gambling for many people. In fact, Let It Ride was invented back in the 1990's by a casino equipment company as a game for new players and older gamblers. Because Let It Ride has a slow rate of play, it's a comfortable game for beginning players.
Why Play Let It Ride for Free?
Unlike slots, roulette, or baccarat, Let It Ride is a game which offers better odds to those who can master its strategies. This makes Let It Ride similar to video poker or blackjack. If you want to master how to play the game without losing a lot of money learning the hard way, finding a good free game online is the best way to go.
Why Are Free Let It Ride Games So Hard to Find?
Let It Ride is a harder to find than games like blackjack, craps, roulette, and slots. The newness of Let It Ride hurts the online version of it, while it's probably not helped by the fact the game is a little harder to find in land-based casinos than it was a few years ago. Still, I pointed the way to several ways mobile gamblers can play the game, while giving at least one traditional Internet venue which offers the game. I'll offer one last suggestion.
Free Online Casinos
All online casinos offer a free version of their site. In some jurisdictions, offering the free option to any game you list can sometimes be good for local legal reasons. Besides, most casino operators know that a person who practices on their site is likely to play a few hands on their site. This can turn into a real fan of the site (a regular customer), so they offer freebie versions of their game to the gaming public. If you can't find anywhere else to try out a new game, simply go to your favorite online casino and enjoy the freeplay version of the website.
Facebook Let It Ride - It's a bad sign when you look something up on Facebook and you find a music band instead of the name you want. That's what happened with "Let It Ride Facebook", which produced a band which does both country & western and classic rock with a "touch of polka and waltz". The band does weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, and company events, but they do not help you play casino games online for free. Let's move on to the next likeliest target.
Zynga Let It Ride - Zynga's casino games focus heavily on slot machines, with Go Slots and Lucky Play (which also offers video poker). A sportsbook from Zynga is also available, but no version of Let It Ride. Speaking of sometime Facebook partners, Gamesys appears to have developed a Let It Ride application once, but it is listed as "no platforms for apps". Gamesys doesn't appear to be an option, either.
If you're on those who consider mobile gaming in the same light as online gaming, then you can go online and download apps for your mobile devices which let you play Let It Ride. Here's how to play Let It Ride with your Android phone.
Let It Ryde Free by Trikal - "LetitRyde Free" is a free application by Trikal. This download requires Android 2.1 and up. Version 3.1 of Let It Ryde Free was released in November of 2012. Features include up to $250 chips, a button to re-bet the same amount, accurate game play, and the 3-card bonus side bet, and custom chips to bet any dollar amount up to $1,000. Also included is a "how to play" guide, along with the full payout table. Trikal touts this game as the only Let It Ride-only game on the market, as of June 2012. After searching for more like it, I tend to concur. I had hoped 22-in-1 Casino & Sportsbook would have Let It Ride, but it didn't. I even thought Zynga Poker might include poker-influenced table games like 3-card poker and Let-It-Ride in the games list, but that didn't happen.
Casino Game Strategy App - Anyone wanting to learn more strategy tips about Let It Ride can download the free Casino Game Strategy app from Carolina Wolf Software. The application requires Android 2.1 and up, because it was released in August 2012. Downloaders find ten game guides, including Let It Ride, Caribbean stuf, flop poker, 4-card poker, Mississippi stud, pai gow poker, Texas holdem bonus, 3-card poker, craps, and blackjack. Besides improving at the game we're talking about today, you might learn one or two games you don't see every day, like Mississippi stud and four-card poker.
Ultimate Casino Guide - It isn't free, but the Ultimate Casino Guide by Snuggz Production offers a cheap $1.49 application for Android 1.6 or later. The app contains over 30 casino games, including Let It Ride. In this section, you'll find instructions and rules information for playing, the house edge, a strategy guide, and a visual walkthrough. This last feature might be the best part of Ultimate Casino Guide. Other games included are baccarat, classic blackjack, double exposure, switch, Spanish 21, no bust 21, Caribbean stud, red dog, sicbo, and even horse betting and sports betting. The app even has a section on "big six", that game at the casino played with the big wheel of fortune. I wouldn't recommend playing big six, by the way, since I've seen it listed as the absolute worst bet in casino gambling.
Wizard of Odds Game - If you don't want to download an application to your mobile device, you can find plenty of online gaming websites which offer Let It Ride. These sites might have ads you don't like or hidden fees, so if you want a web address you can trust, try the WizardofOdds website. The Wizard of Odds, Michael Shackleford, developed his own free version of Let It Ride using Java script. Shackleford says it plays exactly like the most famous RTG site's Let It Ride game. Reading the how-to section on his site is a good way to familiarize yourself with the game.
