What is 3 card poker 6 card bonus?

3 Card Poker 6 Card Bonus is essentially a 3 card poker game but with a bit of a twist. In this variant of 3 card poker, players have the liberty of combining the dealer’s 3 cards along with their 3 cards to form a 6 card bonus hand combination. Based on the hand combination that they form; the players get different types of payouts.

How to play 3 card poker 6 card bonus?

The game starts with all the players placing an ante or blind bet in the pot. These bets are mandatory bets and can be looked at as entry tokens into the game.  Once the ante or the blind has been posted, the pair plus bet can also be posted by the player. This bet is optional and players can post this voluntarily. Once both these bets are posted, the cards are dealt to the players. The dealer deals 3 cards to each of the players. In this game, players are not allowed to draw cards and have to play with the cards that they have been dealt.

Once all the players have been dealt their respective hands, the dealer can deal the last hand to themselves. While dealing 3 cards to themselves, the dealer is supposed to deal one of those cards face up. Once the dealer has dealt their hand, the players are allowed to look at their hand and decide if they will continue in the game or if they will fold. If the player ends up folding their hand and forfeiting the game, they end up losing the ante or the blind that they posted along with the pair plus bet, if they added that to the pot.  If the player decides to continue the game, they are supposed to post another bet into the pot to play. This bet is supposed to be equal to the ante or the blind that they posted to start the game. Once all the players have posted this bet, the dealer unveils the remaining two cards of their hand. The players are then supposed to use their hand and the dealer's hand to form the best possible hand combination with those 6 cards. The payout is based on the hand combination that is formed.
