Mississippi Stud Poker is a game that is found at larger Las Vegas casinos. It plays like a reverse version of Let it Ride. The player needs enough money to play three stacks to complete a hand. A player ideally has nine times the ante when the hand starts to be able to stay in the hand with maximum bets. This means it takes at least four times the posted minimum bet to finish a hand of Mississippi Stud.

How to play Mississippi Stud

The ante bet is required. There are also optional side bets. This includes a citywide progressive at Caesars Entertainment casinos. 

Once the ante is made, the player receives two cards. Three cards are placed in the center. There is no dealer hand. The player wins based on hand strength. 

Players decide to bet one to three times the amount of the ante or fold after seeing two cards. The same decision occurs after the second and third community cards are shown. A player that folds at any point loses all bets. Players that go to the end will need at least a pair of sixes to push and a pair of jacks to win.
