Let It Ride

Let It Ride is a table game based on five-card stud poker. The goal of the game is to get the best possible combination from three hole cards and two community cards.

The game’s most distinguishing feature is that it gives you two opportunities to take back one-third of your initial bet. The first opportunity occurs after you see your hand and before the first community card is revealed. The second opportunity takes place between the reveal of the first community card and the second community card. You have the right to take advantage of one, both, or neither of these opportunities. If you’re not using any of these opportunities, you are letting it ride.

In comparison, blackjack has a house edge of 1% and full-pay Jacks or Better video poker has a casino advantage of 0.46%.
