If you are familiar with mobile casino games, chances are you have heard of iPhone Vegas three card rummy. Like many other iPhone casino games, this classic casino card game can be played for free or for real money on all iPhones. The game itself is a mixture between poker and blackjack where the aim of the game is to create hands that score the least amount of points possible. In the notes below, we are going to look at how the game works and how you can get started playing and winning online.
A Single Player Casino Card Game
As opposed to the classic land-based version of the game, iPhone Vegas three card rummy is played one-on-one against the dealer. This means that players can log on and play for real money without having to wait for an open table. The setup for the game is fairly simple. The game consists of a single table with the dealer situated at the top of the table and the player at the bottom. The player’s chips are stacked at the bottom right hand side of the screen. Rummy is played with a standard deck of 52 cards.
Placing Your Bet
A game of iPhone Vegas three card rummy begins with the player placing the ante bet. This can be done by taping on the chips at the bottom of the screen and then swiping them into the ante betting area. Once the ante bet has been placed, players can then click on the deal button. The dealer will then dealer player three cards facing up and himself three cards facing down. The aim of Vegas three card rummy is to beat the dealer by achieving a lower point total. Once the cards have been dealt, players have the option of folding or raising the bet.
Aim for a Low Score
In iPhone Vegas three card rummy if players chose to fold after the first hand, they will lose their bet. If players feel they have a good low scoring hand, they can raise the bet and see if the dealer has a lower score. In this game, each card has a point value. Cards two through to ten are worth their face value. The jack queen and king are all worth 10 points and the ace is worth a single point. Any pair created is worth 0 points, three of a kind is worth 0 points, any 2-card or 3-card suited run is also worth 0 points.
If the player chooses to raise the bet, the dealer will flip his cards to see if he can beat the player’s score. In iPhone Vegas three card rummy, the dealer has to qualify with a hand worth 20 points or less. If the dealer does not qualify, the player wins the ante bet and the raise bet is a push. If the dealer does qualify and the player still wins, all bets are paid out 1:1. In the mobile version of the game, the computer will automatically calculate the point total for both the player and the dealer and pay out accordingly.
