Let It Ride

"Let It Ride!" is a common cry at racecourses across the US. Essentially, it's an accumulator, or parlay bet, where the gambler lets his winnings carry forward to the next race.

The method is also the main feature in the casino game, Let It Ride.

Also known as Let 'Em Ride or Poker Ride, Let It Ride works a little like Texas Hold'em: the player is dealt three cards face up, and two 'community cards' are dealt face down. The aim is to bet on each stage, or 'street', of the hand, improving your hand as you go. Beat the dealer's poker hand and you'll scoop a win.

To the uninitiated, the nuances of Let It Ride can be a little confusing. Luckily, most online casinos offer free-play games to get you started.

History of Let It Ride

Like many online games, the first Let It Ride games appeared under the Bally/Shufflemaster banner. However, the game was popular in US casinos long before the Internet took over.

The game has lost its appeal in recent years due to a relatively unfavourable house edge of around 3.51%. But the draw of Casino Hold'em, Caribbean Stud and Three-Card Poker has led to a resurgence.

How to Play Let It Ride Online

Let It Ride is a variant of Stud or Hold'em. Players are dealt three cards face up and two cards are dealt to the board. These down-cards act as 'community' cards and are shared by both the player and dealer.

The aim of the game is to finish with the best five-card poker hand possible. You will be paid out according to the strength of your hand.

Placing Bets

Ante: The initial bet is called the 'ante'. This is placed in the spot clearly marked 'Ante'. Your three up-cards will be dealt, plus the two face-down community cards.

Raise 1: Now you have to make a decision on whether to continue. You can 'cruise' to the next round, which is progressing without making a raise. You can also make a raise (equal to your ante) by placing another chip in the 'Raise' area.

Raise 2: The first down card will be flipped over. You add this to your three cards, and make another decision - to call or raise. The second down-card is flipped over and you can complete your five-card hand.

You will now be paid out according to the strength of your hand. The minimum qualifying hand is a pair of 10s, and pays even-money (1-1).
