Raise Up Poker
In Raise up Poker, the player tries to achieve a better poker hand than the dealer. Standard poker hand ranking rules are used.
Click on the chip stack located in the lower left hand corner of the game screen to select the desired bet amount. To play Raise Up Poker you must place a bet on the Ante space. You can also place an optional bet on the Bonus space. Both of these bets have a minimum and maximum bet amount that you can place. See the Table Limits card in the upper right hand corner of the table for details. Once you have placed your bet(s), click the Deal, or Quick Deal button. Five cards will be dealt to you, then five cards to the dealer. If you play the bonus bet of Raise up poker, it will be settled at this point. The bonus bet pays on the result of your first five cards. If you have one of the hands shown on the Bonus Bet paytable, you will be paid based on the odds listed. If not, you will lose your bonus bet and the game continues. The Bonus Bet paytable is shown below. Based on your first five cards, you must choose whether to fold your hand or to continue. Continue means to change some or all of your cards, or to keep all of your original cards and play against the dealer. If you have cards marked with Discard, you will see a Change button. Clicking this button will remove the marked cards and deal the same number of new cards. If you do not have any marked cards you will see a Stand button. Clicking Stand indicates that you want to keep all your original cards and continue to play against the dealer. You will not be able to fold after deciding to continue. The cards you decided to discard will be replaced with new cards, and the dealer will change his cards at this time.
The dealer in Raise up poker changes his cards based on strict change rules which do not vary based on how many cards you discarded. Once you receive your final cards, you must choose to bet either 1x, 2x or 3x your ante amount to play against the raise up poker dealer. Your bet amount gets placed in the Raise bet space. The dealer's cards are revealed. If the dealer does not have at least a pair of 7's, he does not qualify to play.
