Let it ride is a popular casino game where you’re trying to beat the odds. It is not a game you play against other opponents, but there can be multiple players at your table. You’re not even trying to beat the house like in blackjack. All you want to do is hit one of the paying poker hands. It’s easy to learn, fun to play, and there is a small element of strategy in this game. Each player will have three cards while the house gets two cards, all are face down. The idea is to make a paying poker hand by combining your three cards with the dealer’s two cards.

How to play Let it Ride

Each player starts by making three equal bets (so if you want to bet $120 total, you would make three $40 bets). Three cards are dealt to each player and two face down to the dealer.
