For some reason, the video poker game I created several years ago is now one of the most popular casino games in the Blindfold Game series.
I first created Blindfold Video Poker – it emulates Las Vegas style video poker machines. One fan wanted more of a poker experience, so he sent me a link to an online poker site. At this site, instead of playing poker against other players, you play against a computer dealer with very strict rules, in one of 7 different games.
For example, in Three Card Poker, you start by making an initial bet. Next you and the dealer are dealt three cards each, face-down. After you look at your cards, you can either fold and lose the bet, or bet the same amount again.
Then you and the dealer show your cards. If your hand is better, you win. If the dealer’s hand is better, you lose. If you won, and you had a good hand (like 3 of a kind), you can win several times what you originally bet.
There are two side bets you can make in this game that makes it more interesting. Regardless of who won, if you win one of the side bets, you can get a lot more money.
The side bet called “Pair Plus” pays you (even if you lost to the dealer) if you have a pair or better in your hand. The best payout on Pair Plus bets is 40 to 1 for a straight flush.
The side bet called “6-Card Bonus” combines your three cards with the dealer’s three cards, and the best 5 cards out of those 6 cards determines the payoff. A royal flush pays off at 1000 to 1.
When playing Three Card Poker included in Blindfold Video Poker, you must consider about 3 different strategies at once: beating the dealer, winning the Pair Plus bet, and winning the 6 Card Bonus bet. We’ve added several Dealer Poker games like Three Card Poker to the Video Poker game, and we’ll be adding more.
