Let It Ride, aka Ride ‘Em, is a poker game that adds pizazz to the game of online poker. In this variant players can place side bets and make use of a triple tiered betting structure that allows them to partially retract bets if the cards don’t fall as they’d liked.
How to Play Let It Ride
Let It Ride begins with the placing of 3 identical bets before 3 cards are dealt face up. The remaining cards are face down, which means you'll be making your calls on what you can see. At this stage you can pull your first bet, or let it ride. If you choose to ride then the dealer turns over another card where you'll be given the same 'pull' or 'play/ride' option in order to either withdraw your second bet or see the final card.
After the above sequence you'll see your final hand on which prizes are determined. You'll need at least a pair of 10's to win a prize. You may also win a side bet prize if you draw three of a kind, straight, flush, full house, four of a kind, straight flush or royal flush (assuming you've placed the side bet in the first place).
