Las Vegas video Let it Ride
There are no video Let it Ride machines in Las Vegas. The last multiplayer one left the market in 2011. New York-New York had four old Gamemaker video poker machines that dealt the game. In 2021, New York-New York removed these machines from the floor.
If you enjoy this version of video Let it Ride, I found some at Greektown in Detroit and Golden Nugget in Atlantic City.
How to play Let it Ride
A hand of Let it Ride starts with the player making three equal bets. Each must meet the posted minimum. For example, a $5 Let it Ride table requires $15 to play as every stack must be $5. There may also be side bets on the table. These are generally a three-card poker hand or a jackpot with a royal flush progressive.
Once the bets are on the table, the player receives three cards. Two cards are placed in the center of the table. The dealer does not get a hand. The player’s payouts are based on strength of hand out of five cards.
The player looks at the three cards dealt. There is a decision to pull back one stack or let it ride. If the player is dealt a winner, the cards are tucked under the stacks to let the dealer know there is no more action needed. A motion to the dealer is made to pull a stack back.
After that, one of the two cards in the center is exposed. The player has another decision about whether to let it ride or pull one stack back. The cards go in the center now. The last card is displayed. The player now makes the best possible five-card hand. It is paid based on the table below. The amount shown is per $1 wagered. Each stack left in play is paid.
