How to Play

Red Dog

The object of Red Dog is to predict if the value of the third card that is dealt from the deck is in-between the values of the first two cards. Number cards count as their face value, Jack is 11, Queen is 12, King is 13 and Ace is 14. The suit is irrelevant. Red Dog is played with a single deck. After each round, the used cards are returned to the deck and the deck is shuffled.

To play the game:

  • Place your bet by clicking the chips or on the Bet position on the table. Every click increases your bet by the value of the selected chip, and every right-click decreases the bet.
  • You can click Clear Bets to remove all bets from the table.
  • Click on the Deal button.
  • Two cards are drawn.
    • If the two cards are consecutive, it is a tie (your wager is returned to you and the round is over). If the cards are equal, a third card is drawn. If it matches the first two cards, you win 11 to 1; otherwise it is a tie.
    • If the two cards are neither consecutive nor equal, the spread is established. The spread is the number of card values between the two cards. For example – 2 and 4 have a spread of 1; 6 and a Queen have a spread of 5.
    • The spread of the two cards is marked by the Red Dog token on the table.
  • Now you have the option to raise (double) your bet or to call (continue without raising). Press Raise or Call respectively.
  • A third card is drawn. If the card's value is between the values of the initial cards (for example, the first two cards were a 4 and a Queen and the third card is a Jack), you win according to the payout table. If it matches one of the initial cards or is outside the spread, you lose.
  • If you win a hand, you get your bet back along with the winnings. For example, if you bet 5 and win on an even spread, you receive 5 from the win plus 5 from your bet for a total of 10. If you win on a spread of 3 that pays 2 to 1, you receive double your bet (10) from the win plus 5 from your bet for a total of 15.
  • Click New Game if you wish to play again. Place a bet as described above, or click Rebet to place the same bet again.
