Red Dog: Also known as Red Dog Poker or Yablon, this is a table game of chance played with a single 52 deck of cards with the Jokers removed.
The game uses three cards at a time, the ranking is the same as standard poker with Aces high. The suit of each card is ignored, only the numeric value is relevant.
To begin the game, the player places the initial wager on the place marked BET on the table using any combination of the available casino chips displayed. The minimum bet allowed is $1.00, the table limit for the initial bet is $200.00
Once the bet is established, two additional buttons are displayed: BET and CLEAR. The player can cancel the bet by clicking the CLEAR button, at which point all chips on the table are returned to their respective stack, or the player can click the BET button which begins the game.
Two cards are dealt from the shoe, face up, one on each side of the table, facing the player. There are now three possible outcomes when the third card is dealt and the objective is for the player to assess the likelihood of the result and continue accordingly.
The three possibilities are:
1: The two cards on the table are consecutive in number (e.g. Jack-Queen or Six-Seven). If this is the case the result is deemed a PUSH or tie and the player's bet is returned. This result is handled automatically by the game.
2: The two cards are of equal value (e.g. Queen-Queen or Six Six). If this is the case a third card is dealt automatically from the shoe. The third card is placed in between the two existing cards. If the third card is numerically the same as the first two (e.g. Queen-Queen-Queen), then the result is Three of a Kind and the payout is 11:1
If the third card is not the same as the first two then the hand is deemed a PUSH, or tie, and the player's bet is returned automatically.
3: The two cards on the table are not the same as each other at which point the player needs to decide on the likelihood of the third card being numerically between the existing two cards. The closer in number that the existing cards are, the less likely the third card with fall within the spread.
The player can choose at this point to RAISE, which doubles the initial bet; recommended if the spread is 4 or higher, or to click the DON'T RAISE button which will retain the original bet amount. The player must choose one or the other bet options at which point the third card is dealt and the game result established.
The pay-out table is as follows:
|Three of a Kind||5:1|
Min bet = $1.00
Max Bet = $200 (Raise $400)
