Three Card Poker Is Popular at All Kinds of CasinosThree Card Poker is a casino table game which uses the poker card ranks, but resolves wagers in a much different way. The game offers both a main bet (“Ante and Play”) and a side bet (“Pair Plus”). Players are required to make several betting decisions during a hand, so it has a strategy aspect. Game play is quick and simple, giving casino gamblers a nice way to play a poker-style game without the hustle and bustle of the Texas hold’em tables. Of all the proprietary games in the casino these days, 3-Card Poker is the most profitable for casinos.

The version of Three Card Poker which is played in most land-based casinos in the 21st century was invented in 1994. A game designer named Derek Webb invented a game which combined the excitement of poker with the speed of a table game. This was certain to appeal to casino management, since many casual gamblers are most familiar with poker and would like to play it in the casino. A lot of novices get a little intimidated by the adversarial nature of Texas holdem, Omaha, and Seven-Card Stud, so they avoid such situations, because they know they’ll be playing more experienced gamblers. Three-Card Poker is one of a set of games which offers a nice alternative.

It should be noted that three-card poker variations have existed a long time before 1994. At least as early as the 16th century, the British played a poker-style game called “Brag”. Probably as long as poker has existed, three card variations have existed. But when Derek Webb created his version, it was at a time that casinos were looking for inventive new ways to attract customers. Mr. Webb created a company, Prime Table Games, which marketed the game in the United States and the United Kingdom. This caught on, and 3-Card Poker is now a common brick-and-mortar game. In the online casino industry, the game is found virtually everywhere.
