How to play 3 card rummy

3 card rummy is also known as Vegas Three Card Rummy. It is a variation of poker and very popular in casinos and online gaming. A standard deck of 52 cards is used in the 3 card rummy.  

Object of the game

The object of the rummy 3 game is to get lower points than the dealer. To achieve this, your cards value must be less than the dealer’s cards. Then you can win the bet.

3 card rummy rules

3 card rummy is a simple game. Here are the 3 card rummy rules:-

  • It is mandatory to place the ante bet (Ante Bet is the initial bet you have to make before  any cards are dealt in order to compete against the dealer)
  • Bonus bet is optional. It will pay out according to the total points of your hand. If your points are less than 12, you win the bonus bet. Unlike Ante betting you do not need to beat the dealer to get the payout.
  • You and the dealer both get three cards each.
  • Your cards are dealt face-up and the dealer’s cards are face down.
  • You can either fold or place the bet (Folding means you don't play further, i.e., out for the hand)
  • If you opt to bet, then the dealer shows their cards
  • The Ace is the lowest card
  • The person with the lowest card wins the bet.

Card values in 3 card rummy :

2 to 10 = Face Value of card

K, Q, J= 10 points each

Ace= 0 Points

3 of a Kind = 0 points

2-card suited run = 0 points

3-card suited run= 0 points

Tips to win 3 card rummy

Rummy 3 is a simple game and you can learn to strategize very quickly. We at GetMega will give you some tips to increase your chances of winning the 3 card rummy game.

  • You should bet only if the total points of your cards is 20 or less
  • If your hand value has 21 points or more then it is better to fold.
  • Also remember that the dealer’s cards’ value must be 20 or less in order to qualify.
  • If your hand is 20 or higher you can win only if the dealer does not qualify for the hand. In such a case, your chances of winning are very less and even if you win, you will get only the ante bet. So it is better to fold.
  • It is a good idea to make a bonus bet. If your score is 12 or less then you get to win more. Probability of getting 12 or less is relatively higher.

Vegas three card rummy

Vegas Three Card Rummy can be considered as a poker version of the 3 card rummy. It is very popular at online casinos which use Cryptologic and Real Time Gaming software. The rules are similar to Three Card Poker but the scores are calculated differently and there is no ante bonus.

Bonus Bets are allowed. If you get 12 points or less you win the bonus bet. In case you fold, then the bonus bet is lost.


You will win if your total points is less than the Dealer’s or the dealer does not qualify. You can  win if the Dealer doesn’t qualify against the Raise. You can also win the Bonus Bet if your points are less than 12.


You lose if you fold or the Dealer gets lower points. You can also if you Raise but the Dealer gets lesser points. If your points are more than 12 then you lose the bonus bet.
