Do you like to just kick back and enjoy the game without the do’s & don’ts
of proper poker etiquette? Then Let It Ride is a good game for you!
Although there are some guidelines, there’s no real poker etiquette when it comes to Let It Ride.
With certain games such as Craps and Blackjack, you may…
,,,be getting reprimanded by the other participants if you do something wrong. (Of course, you won’t have to worry about this if you take the free Craps or Blackjack classes offered on Big “M” prior to the cruise!) With Let It Ride, however, it’s practically impossible to do anything wrong!
That said, there are still a few things you should know before you play Let It Ride.
Place all three wagers. When you go to bet at the Let It Ride table, you must place three equal wagers in front of you. Not one wager. Not two. Three wagers. Of the exact same amount. (Pretty simple, but important.)
No touching! Once you have placed your three wagers, you cannot touch the wagers until the hand is complete. If you want to pull back a wager you can either tell the dealer, or scratch your cards on the table in a pull-back motion. If you decide to Let It Ride, tuck your cards face down underneath one of your bets.
No peeking! When the dealer deals out everyone’s cards, he will usually deal them face down. First, allow the dealer to look around and make sure everyone has cards. Once the dealer has dealt out everyone’s cards, he will move the cards closer to you. At that point it is okay for you to pick up and look at your cards.
And that’s basically it!
Those are the only Let It Ride poker etiquette tips you really need to remember. As with any casino game, the best way to feel comfortable is to start playing! Come try out the Big “M” Casino’s Let It Ride tables, or join us for free classes about how to play Blackjack, or Three Card Poker.
