3 Card Brag

We offer single deck Live 3 Card Brag with a real dealer and a real 3 Card Brag game table. You are dealt 3 cards and play against the dealer. The dealer must qualify with a Queen or a higher card to play.

After each game round, the deck of cards is reshuffled by a designated shuffler or a shuffling machine to make it ready for the next game round.

Game flow

  • After all the players have made their decisions, dealer’s cards are turned face up.
  • If the dealer's hand does not qualify with a Queen or better, then the Ante bet gets an even money payout and the Play bet results in a Push (your Play bet is returned to you).
  • If the dealer's hand qualifies, then dealer’s and player’s hands are compared. 
    • If you have higher cards, then both your Ante and Play bets get an even money payout. 
    • If the dealer has a better hand, then both your Ante and Play bets are lost.
    • In case of a tie, both your Ante and Play bets result in a Push.

Limit ranges

The limit ranges displayed next to the table name in the Lobby and on the game table UI correspond to Ante bet limits.

Blind Play

The Blind Play feature allows you to place the Play bet before the cards are dealt and automatically participate in the whole game round. You cannot use this option without an Ante bet, so when you place a bet on the Blind Play position, your bet amount is automatically copied to the Ante betting position.

In case Golden Chip is used on Ante or on Blind Play positions, it will be replaced with Real Money chip of the same value. Only one Golden Chip can be used per round, but when the player places the Blind Play bet, they automatically place a bet on the Ante position as well, and the game mechanics consider this as use of two Golden Chips. When the player tries to place a bet on Blind Play, an error message is displayed, explaining that only one (1) GC can be used per round.

Blind Play is available only if enabled by your service provider and you can disable it in the game Settings.

Side bets

Ante Bonus

Once you place the Ante bet you automatically participate in the Ante Bonus. The Ante Bonus is rewarded to you when you have one of the hands listed in the Ante Bonus payout table (see below), regardless of the fact whether you beat the dealer’s hand or not. If you choose to fold, the Ante Bonus is not rewarded to you, even if your hand qualified.

Pair Plus

Pair Plus Side Bet can be placed without an Ante bet.

Regardless of the hand of the dealer, you win the Pair Plus bet if you placed a bet on the Pair Plus position and your hand contains a Pair or better.

Note: The Side Bet must be enabled by your service provider.

Poker Plus

Poker Plus is a Side Bet where best five card hand is calculated by combining your three cards with the dealer’s three cards. You can place the bet on Poker Plus betting area after placing your Ante bet and before the cards are dealt.

If your hand qualifies for payouts, you are paid according to the Poker Plus payout table (see below). If your hand does not qualify, you lose the Poker Plus bet.

The Poker Plus bet may win or lose even if you fold your hand and do not place a Play wager.

Note: The Side Bet must be enabled by your service provider.

Golden Chip

Golden Chips are bonus chips that are awarded to you in certain table games. Each Golden Chip has a specific value and can be used for betting like a normal chip. If the Golden Chip menu is available on the dashboard, it means that you have Golden Chips available for you to use in the current game.
The Golden Chip menu displays the value and the amount of the Golden Chips available in each particular game. If you have been awarded Golden Chips of different value, the menu lists all chip values and their amount. Chips of the same value from different bonuses are added up.

The Info button opens a pop-up with more information about the Golden Chips.

To bet using the Golden Chips, first select the desired Golden Chip value and then place a bet as normally. The remaining amount of Golden Chips decreases respectively.

Note that:

  • Golden Chips are only accepted as initial bets in the game. Any following activities, such as doubling, shall be deducted from your Real Money balance.
  • In card games, you cannot place a Golden Chip and regular chips on the same bet position simultaneously. However, you are welcome to mix a Golden Chip with a Real Money bet in all Roulette and SicBo games.
  • You can bet only one Golden Chip in each game round. This means that in multihand games, the Golden Chip can be placed on one hand only.

In case of a Tie or Push, the Golden Chip you bet is returned to you. Note that Tie or Push are featured only in Blackjack and poker games.

When your Golden Chip bet wins, the value of the winning Golden Chip is deducted from your win amount.

All game rounds that are played using Golden Chips are also distinguished in game history with the corresponding (GC) icon.

Note: This feature can be enabled or disabled by your service provider.
