How To Play Four Card Poker®

Ranking Of Hands

Four-of-a-Kind, Straight Flush, Three-of-a-Kind, Flush, Straight, Two Pair, Pair and High card.

Getting Started

Make an Ante bet to play against the dealer. Make an Aces Up® bet to play against the bonus paytable. You will then receive five cards to make your best four card poker hand. Four card Straights are Straights, four card Flushes are Flushes, etc. The dealer receives six cards and turns his top card face-up.

Decision Time

After looking at your hand, you have a choice: fold or bet 1x to 3x your Ante.

Winning and Losing

The dealer then reveals his cards and announces his four card poker hand. If your hand beats or ties the dealer’s, your Ante and Play bets win even money. If your hand loses to the dealer, your Ante and Play bets lose.

Automatic Bonuses

The top three hands in the game (Four-of-a-Kind, Straight Flush and Three-of-a-Kind) receive automatic bonuses, paid on the Ante. You receive these bonuses even if you lose to the dealer.
