How to Play

  1. To begin the game, the player must place a bet in the ANTE bet area. The 3 Card Bonus bet is optional.
  2. Five cards are dealt to the table. The player's two cards are revealed. The three community cards remain face down.
  3. The player must decide whether to FOLD or BET. Choosing to fold the hand will forfeit the ANTE bet and end the game. If the player chooses to bet, they must decide whether to bet 1x, 2x or 3x the ANTE bet. This is the 3rd Street bet.
  4. The first community card is then revealed. The player must choose whether to FOLD or BET. This is the 4th Street bet and must be equal to 1x, 2x or 3x the ANTE bet.
  5. The second community card is then revealed. The player must choose whether to FOLD or BET. This is the 5th Street bet and must be equal to 1x, 2x or 3x the ANTE bet.
  6. The final community card is then revealed. The player is paid out accordingly for both the Ante and the 3rd, 4th and 5th Street bets, and the 3 Card Bonus.
  7. The player's hand and the community cards make up a five-card hand. The Ante and 3rd/4th/5th Street bets are paid out against the paytable for this five-card hand. The three community cards make up a three-card hand. The 3 Card Bonus is paid out against the paytable for this three-card hand.
  8. The 3 Card Bonus bet is evaluated even if the player folds their hand during game play.
  9. Select NEW GAME to begin a new game. Select REBET & DEAL to begin a new game with the previous selected bet(s) and to deal a new game.

Pair of 6s to 10s - (contains a single pair of 6s, 7s, 8s, 9s or 10s)

In Mississippi Stud Poker’s optional side bet, 3 Card Bonus, 3-card hands are ranked from highest to lowest as follows:
Royal Flush - (contains A-K-Q of the same suit)
Straight Flush - (all cards are in sequential value and of the same suit)
Three of a Kind - (contains three cards of the same value)
Straight - (contains three cards of sequential rank in at least two different suits)
Flush - (contains three cards of the same suit)
Pair - (contains two cards of the same value)

For all hand rankings, note that the value of a card ascends sequentially from 2-10, and then according to the following:
Jack - (denoted by a J)
Queen - (denoted by a Q)
King - (denoted by a K)
Ace - (denoted by an A)

When evaluating a hand, only the highest possible rank within the Player's cards is considered (while a Straight Flush contains both a Straight and a Flush, it is calculated solely as a Straight Flush). Ace is high except in 5-4-3-2-Ace sequence.
