Let it Ride is one of the more unusual casino games as players are actually removing bets rather than placing them. But even though Let it Ride takes a little getting used to, it can be a blast to play.

Flash Game Instructions: Choose a chip amount from the bottom right, then click on the ante circle to place your three bets. You may choose to play the bonus as well. Follow the on-screen prompts to pull or leave your bets until all five cards are exposed.
To play Let it Ride, a player needs only to know the basic poker hand rankings. Once the rankings are understood, the game's rules are somewhat reminiscent of Texas Hold'em, but instead of matching your two cards to the three cards on the flop, you're matching your three cards to the two cards that belong to the dealer.
You are required to place three bets of equal value before any cards are dealt. As usual, these bets must be between the minimum and maximum allowed bet amounts.
The dealer deals every player three cards, and himself two.
After looking at your three cards you can choose to pull back one of your three bets, or leave all three bets in play. At no time are you allowed to share information about your hand with the other players at the table. This goes for the first and second choice periods.
The dealer will reveal one of his two cards. After seeing his card you must choose to pull back one of your bets, or leave all remaining bets in play.
After this choice you will be left with one, two or three bets on the table. The dealer then turns over their second card and you get paid based on the best five-card poker hand you can make by combining your three cards with the dealer's two cards.
Note: Players are paid in accordance to the pay scale on all remaining bets left on the table.
- Pair of 10's or better - 1:1
- Two Pairs - 2:1
- Three of a kind - 3:1
- Straight - 5:1
- Flush - 8:1
- Full House - 11:1
- Four of a kind - 50:1
- Straight flush - 200:1
- Royal flush - 1000:1
Keep all bets in play if you hold a pair of 10's or better.
If you hold three to a straight or flush on the first choice, keep all bets in play.
If you hold four to a straight or flush on the second choice, keep all bets in play.
Also if you hold multiple cards ranked 10 or higher, there is a decent chance of making one pair, and receiving a 1:1 payout.
By playing optimal strategy a player can limit the house edge to 0.03%.
