A Card - Any Card
Pick A Card is a patent pending casino game inspired by the scene in
Vegas Vacation where Clark and Cousin Eddie go to that odd casino where the games are a
Included was a game called Pick A Number, seen here, which used no device to determine the winner.
Despite being absurd to the max, it was the inspiration for a fair version, with a house
edge that is reasonable but hard to calculate on the fly, is fun and easy to play, and
seems to be player advantage.
Players make a wager that a selected card rank appears in the three cards to be
revealed. Payouts are increased if the chosen rank appears more than once. Players may wager
on as many ranks as desired.
A Bonus side bet allows players to wager that the three cards have a pair, flush,
straight, three of a kind or straight flush. This is similar to the Pair Plus side bet
for Three Card Poker.
A Jackpot side bet works the same, but includes a jackpot payout if any three of a
kind or straight flush is immediately followed by any three of a kind or straight flush. The
jackpot payout can either be a static payout, or progressive.
Casinos can offer either, or both, of the side bets.
Similar to craps where one player throws the dice to determine the outcome,
one player will select the three cards. All players play the same three cards.
One player is provided a stylus to select the cards. If the cards are a pair or
better, the same player will select the cards on the next turn. Alternatively, the dealer
can offer a player a cut card, cut the deck, and use the top 3 cards to determine the winners.
