The object of the game is to get at least a "pair of 10s or better" from a combination of your three cards and two community cards, while keeping all three regular bets in action. The player does not actually play against the dealer or another player but rather against the odds in order to get the best five card poker hand possible.
How to Play
Let It Ride Poker uses the standard ranking of Poker hands ranging from a Royal Flush down to a Pair of 10s. You must have at least a Pair of 10s or better to win. The higher your hand is ranked, the more you will win.
Playing the Game
Initially you must place three identical bets. Each bet must be at least table minimum. You will have the opportunity to withdraw two of the three bets as the hand progresses. Your hand consists of five cards: three dealt to you and two community cards placed in front of the dealer.
Once you view your first three cards you may not like your chances of getting a winning combination, so you may remove your first bet if this is the case. If you feel that you will get a winning poker hand, or if you already have a pair of 10s or better, you can Let it Ride. After deciding to withdraw or Let It Ride, the first community card is dealt.
Taking all four cards into consideration, you must now decide what to do with your second bet: withdraw or Let It Ride. Your third and final bet cannot be withdrawn therefore; you must Let It Ride. The dealer now deals the fifth and final card. At this point the five cards will decide if you have a winning poker hand or not. Winning bets are paid out according to the payout schedule on the bottom right hand of the table.

Press Take Down to withdraw your first or second bet. If after viewing your first three cards you don't like your chances of getting a winning hand, you may Take Down your first bet.
