Let-it-Ride Poker is played on a table similar to a Blackjack table and the strategy is to create a five card hand which is equal or higher in value than a pair of tens.

The game starts by placing three mandatory bets in a betting cicle on the table, Three cards are dealt "face up", and two cards are placed "facedown" in front of the dealer.(In two rectangular boxes, marked with the numbers
1 and 2.)

You can choose to "Bet back"(withdraw) the first bet or "Let It Ride2(keep it).

The dealer than turns over the fourth card and you must decide whether to Let It Ride or to Bet Back the second bet.

The dealer finally turns over the fifth card and your hand will be scored.

Your winnings will be doubled the bet wagered if you allow your second bet to ride, and tripled if you allow all three bets to ride.

The payoff is determined by the quality of your hand. See payoff table above.
