The game is played with a standard 52 card deck.
The player makes an Ante bet and may make an optional AA bonus side bet.
The player and dealer are both dealt two cards (face down).
Three cards are then dealt to the board and will eventually contain five cards.
After checking his/her cards, the player has to decide (a) to fold with no further play losing the Ante bet or (b) to make a Call bet of double the Ante bet.
If the player makes a Call bet the dealer will deal two more cards to the board, for a total of five.
The player and dealer make their best five card poker hand from their own two personal cards and five board cards.
The players hand is compared with the dealer’s.
The dealer must have a pair of 4s or better to qualify.
If the dealer does not qualify, the Ante bet pays according to the AnteWin pay table and the Call bet is a push (stand off).
If the dealer qualifies, and the player's hand is better than the dealer's, the Ante bet pays according to the Ante-Win pay table (see below) and the Call bet pays
1 to 1. If the dealer qualifies, and the dealer's hand is equal to the player's, all bets are push (it doesn't win or lose).
If the dealer qualifies, and the dealer's hand is better than the player's, the player loses all bets.
The AA side bet is optional. Here, you bet on whether the first five cards dealt (your two cards plus the first three table cards) will include a pair of Aces or better. The AA side bet's pay according to the AA-Win pay table(see below). AA side bet's can only be placed when you've made a Ante bet.
