Three Card Poker at William Hill
There are loads of ways to play poker at William Hill and one of these is Three Card Poker. Unlike other forms of poker that require you to beat other players, Three Card Poker requires you to make certain poker hands or beat the dealer. You start the game by placing an Ante bet, a Pair Plus bet, or both. Both you and the dealer get three cards, and once you have seen your cards you can choose to play or fold.
If you choose to fold then all bets previously placed are lost, along with any Pair Plus award you would be entitled to. If you choose to play then this will cost the same as your original Ante bet. Should the dealer have a hand less than Queen high then he will fold and your Ante bet will be paid out at even money. Should the dealer have Queen high or better then your hand will be compared with that of the dealer and the best hand wins. Three Card Poker hands and payoffs at William Hill Casino are as follows:
Straight Flush = 40/1 Pairs Plus and 5/1 Ante Bonus
Your three cards are consecutively ranked and all belong to the same suit (for example, A, 2, 3 of hearts). In the case of a tie between player and dealer, the hand with the higher straight flush wins. 3, 4, 5 of the same suit would therefore beat A, 2, 3 of the same suit.
Three of a Kind = 30/1 Pairs Plus and 4/1 Ante Bonus
Your three cards are of the same rank. If both player and dealer have three of a kind then the hand with the higher rank wins. 8, 8, 8 would therefore beat 7, 7, 7.
Straight = 6/1 Pairs Plus and 1/1 Ante Bonus
Your three cards of consecutively ranked, but not of the same suit. If both player and dealer have a straight then the hand with the higher rank wins. 6, 7, 8 would therefore beat 2, 3, 4.
Flush = 4/1 Pairs Plus only
Your three cards are of the same suit. In the case of a tie between player and dealer, the hand with the highest card in the flush wins.
Pair = 1/1 Pairs Plus only
You have two cards of the same rank. If both player and dealer have a pair, the highest pair wins. A, A, 5 would therefore beat K, K, Q.
