Let ‘Em Ride is not only fun to play and easy to learn. So how does a newbie make money at the game?Here are some quick tips.

Let ‘Em Ride: Kind of Like Poker

Let ‘Em Ride is a variation of poker. But this game isn’t against a table of players; it’s a game played against the house.

Players are dealt from a single deck of 52 cards. You are dealt three cards face up and two cards are dealt face down in front of the dealer. You can choose to raise your Ante bet or you can see the other two cards without having to make more bets.

After the Dealer’s last card is shown, a player’s hand is evaluated as a normal poker hand, combining the player’s three cards and the dealer’s two cards.

The amount you’re paid depends on the payout table shown to the left of your screen.

Best Strategies for Beginners

When you receive your first three cards, the best strategy is to leave your second bet or raise with these three-card hands:

– Three cards to a straight flush, only when at least two of the three cards are a 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace.

– Three cards to a straight flush with only one number missing (for example 7, 8, 10) and at least one of the cards 10 or higher. The only hands that qualify are 7-8-10, 7-9-10 and 8-9-J.

Cards in order like 5-6-7 or 7-8-9 except A-2-3 and 2-3-4.

Three cards to a royal flush.

Any hand that’s a pair of 10s or better.

If you get any other three-card combo don’t bother “letting it ride.”

Bet That Dollar

The key do getting that huge jackpot in Let ‘Em Ride is betting that extra dollar on every hand. You’ll find the little slot to your right on the screen. Add a dollar to it and you’re eligible to get the progressive win if you grab a Royal Flush. If you don’t add that dollar, trust us, you’ll be crying about what could have been.
