New Online Casino Poker Game At Omni Casino
May 1, 2017
A new casino game has gone live at Omni Casino, but it is not an online pokie. It has been a long time since there was a new casino poker game at Omni Casino and players who like this category will be delighted. 3 Card Brag is a fast paced game with a simple strategy and a high average return to player.
Like most online casino poker games, 3 Card Brag is played with a standard deck and each deal is played with a full deck. You start by placing the ante bet. You are dealt three cards face up. The dealer’s three cards are dealt face down. You now have two options. If you think you have a bad hand, then you can fold and lose the ante bet. Or you can place the play bet, which is equal to twice the ante bet, and move the game forward. The dealer’s cards are turned over. If the dealer does not have the qualifying hand of queen high or better then you are paid even money on the ante bet and the play bet pushes.
If the dealer qualifies then the hands are compared. In 3 Card Brag the hand rankings, from highest best to worst, are as follows. At the top is prial, which is nothing but three of a kind. Then is running flush, which is straight flush in normal poker terminology. This is followed by run, flush, pair and high card. You must keep in mind that 3-3-3 is the highest ranked prial. If the dealer’s hand is higher ranked, you lose both your bets. If your hand is higher ranked, the ante bet is paid even money and the play bet is paid according to a payout table. The payouts are run or under at 1:1; running flush at 4:1 and prial at 5:1. The average return to the player is almost 98%. The optimum strategy is to play if you hold a queen high or better, otherwise fold.
3 Card Brag includes an optional Pair Plus bet. You have to place this bet upfront if you go for it. It is paid independently according to another payout table based on the player hand. The payout goes as high as 40:1 for a prial. However, the average return on this side bet is lower. It is a high risk high return bet.
Omni Casino is powered by software from Playtech. The online casino newsletter has announced a special promotion on May 3. For every prial that you are dealt with a Pair Plus bet of $5 or more you will receive $50.
