Online casinos are also offering a few simpler games to players such as red dog. This game is also known and loved by many by the name of acey – duecey and between the sheets. The game is easy to play and great for people playing from home that are fighting insomnia but not interested in mind blowing or thought provoking games like pai gow poker or many of the blackjack variations. If you want to have a little fun and take a few risks without putting a great deal of thought or effort into the process then red dog is a great game for the moment.
If you aren’t familiar with red dog by any of the names mentioned above you will be glad to know that the goal is simple as is the actual game play action. You are dealt two cards. The wager is placed on whether or not the next card you are dealt will fall between the values of the original two cards you were dealt. You want the third card to rank between the value of the other cards you’ve been dealt and bet accordingly (and prior to any cards being dealt). The payouts will vary according to the circumstances of the first two cards. Risk takers particularly enjoy red dog because it really is a game of chance. Of course there are probabilities involved and some spreads are more likely to payout for you (though the more likely the payout the lower the payout).
This game is different from many card games in that the values of cards are a little different. The numbered cards all receive face value. Face cards though are assigned a particular value. The Jack is given the value of 11. The Queen is 12; King is 13, and the Ace is always 14. Knowing small (but important) details such as this can greatly impact the way you wager and the potential winnings of your wagers.
A Few Rules
Rules are the name of any casino game. The same holds true for red dog. The good news for fans of this game or those that are interested in this game but still on the fence is that the rules are simple to remember. First of all if the two initial cards are a pair you will be dealt one more card. If that card is the same as the first two you will be paid out at a ratio of 11:1 of the original wager. If the value is different the hand will be considered a push and your original wager will be returned to you. If the two initial cards are consecutively ranked then there will be no third card dealt and the round will be a push with your ante returned to you.
