How to Play Stud Poker 3D
Stud Poker 3D is a poker table game released by iSoftBet. At first glance, it looks a lot like a table game version of video poker. The object of the game is simply to make your best five-card poker hand. However, unlike video poker, you don’t get to draw any cards. What you get is what you will play.
Before you receive cards, you must make a bet by clicking on the Click to Bet section of the felt. You can bet from $1 to $10 per hand. Once you bet, you can click the Deal button to receive cards. The dealer will give you five cards face up and they will get one card face up.
After getting cards, you’ll make your only decision of the game. You can either Raise or Pass. If you pass, the hand is over and you will lose your bet.
If you Raise, the dealer will then deal the rest of their hand. The dealer’s hand must qualify with at least Ace-King high for your Raise bet to pay off. If the dealer does not qualify and your hand is higher, you will win 1 to 1 on your initial bet and the Raise bet pushes.
However, if the dealer qualifies, then you will get 1 to 1 on your initial bet and the Raise pays according to the paytable.
