Once you have looked at your hand and the bank’s first card, you need to in turn make a call bet or give up. The call bet’s amount is akin to your original wager, meaning that the stakes will have increased two fold. Bowing out means that your bet goes directly to the dealer. After the bet is the showdown. If the dealer does not have ace/king or better, your wager is given back, plus a sum on par with the ante.

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • two to one for two pairs
  • three to one for 3 of a kind
  • 4-1 for a straight
  • five to one for a flush
  • seven to one for a full house
  • 20-1 for a 4 of a kind
  • 50-1 for a straight flush
