Any idea where Poker comes from? Poker comes from a French name “Poque”. It became popular after a Frenchman brought his deck of cards in the USA. Poker would never be so popular without World Series of Poker – an annual tournament which attracts professional players all over the world. The first winner was Johnny Moss. He won the first title of Poker World Champion in 1970 when the game was held at Binion’s House. Some of the world’s Poker legend are Stu Ungar, Johnny Moss, Thomas Austin Preston and Benny Binion. Three Card Poker was invented by Derek Webb in 1990s in England. The original name was Casino Brag as players had to bet against the house instead of players. Three Card Poker was renamed in the 20th Century.

Three Card Poker Game Features
Live Three Card Poker is, as its name suggests, a card game that’s played with only three cards. Every player on the table plays solely against the dealer. As the game progresses, your available options appear on the screen. Once you make your selection the full screen is dedicated to the live feed of the dealer and the table, immersing you completely into the game.
One of the advantages of the live game is that you can chat with other players and the dealer. The chat function is easily accessible on the left-hand side of the screen. Depending on the available time, the dealer could answer any of your questions as well as interact with player's comments.
Pair Plus Bonus Bet
The first of two side bets available in Live Three Card Poker, the Pair Plus Bonus Bet allows you to wager on getting a pair or better in your hand. Irrespective of the end result of the main game, if you get an applicable combination you could get a reward of up to 100x your side wager. You can choose whether to place this side bet or not at the start of each round.
Six Card Bonus Bet
In this side bet all the cards on the table, meaning your card and the dealer's cards, are combined. The best five-card hand is created, and a prize is awarded if the hand is a three-of-a-kind or better. Once again, it does not matter what the result of the main game is, as this side bet is completely separate. With the Six Card Bonus Bet, you could get up to 1000x your wager.
Three Card Poker Rules
Live Three Card Poker is a fast-paced card game which is very simple to learn and play. Even if you have never played Poker before in your life, it would only take you a few minutes to learn. All you really need to know or have close by is the list of Poker hands.
The round starts with you placing your main bet and any side bets. Next, your three cards are dealt and depending on your hand along with what you believe the dealer might get, you can choose whether to continue playing or to fold. In this game, the dealer can only play if he or she gets a Queen high or better. If this requirement is not met, the player automatically wins the round.
If you opt to keep playing, the dealer's cards are dealt and revealed. The game will automatically indicate the winner and will give out any payouts, including for side bets. Live Three Card Poker also includes an Ante Bonus when you get a Straight or better, irrespective of the dealer's hand.
A bet is placed only when it has been received by our server from your handset using our software. Once a bet has been placed it is final and binding and cannot be cancelled or changed. For the avoidance of doubt, a bet remains valid even if the result cannot for any reason be displayed back to your handset (due, for example, to a network failure, interruption of communication, or if you receive a phone call). In the event of a game termination, any relevant jackpot will be paid out on a random draw authorised by the regulator.
The theoretical average return to player (RTP) is up to 96.63%. This RTP represents the long-term expected payback of the game which has been calculated by an independent testing company and monitored monthly.
