Today while in the Cocoa Casino, I decided to play one of my favorite table games, Let It Ride.

Let It Ride is mostly a luck game, but the player in me feels a little skill is involved. Being able to pull your bet on even possible winning hands can save a player considerable amounts of money.

In this game the player is not playing against the dealer. The player is trying to create the best five card hand possible. A player must put up 3 bets.

To start a player selects an amount to wager. Wagers can range from $1.00 to $400.00 per hand. The amount of the first wager continues through play until hand is finished.

The player is dealt 3 cards up and 2 cards down. The player then decides whether to Let It Ride or pull out. Then the first of two down dealt cards if revealed. The player must again make the decision to Let It Ride or pull out.

Then fifth card is revealed and a player can see if they have won. Even if the player pulls out during play, if a payout hand is shown the player receives winnings based on the all their kept bets.

All poker hands are considered in this game, with a pair of tens being the lowest hand. The pay table is listed in they help section of the screen.

Let It Ride should be played carefully. Learning the pay tables can help a player very much. Good Luck.
