Draw Poker is a game in which players are individually dealt by the croupier, a complete hand of 5 cards, face down, and then improve it by replacing at the most two cards. Each player individually bets against the House (croupier). The winner is the player o players which hold the highest value hand combination compared to the banker or House.
Each player can place two bets, an initial mandatory bet to take part in the game (ANTE) before any card is dealt, and a second optional bet (BET) in case the player chooses to play against the croupier after the 5 cards are dealt to every player. This optional bet must be two times the ANTE.
The croupier plays only if there is an eight pair or a better play in his/her hand. In the event he/she does not have these cards, the croupier must pay the Ante bets of the players that chose to bet against the House.
The game is played with a 52-card deck, with the following values from lowest to highest: Ace, King (K), Queen (Q), Jack (J), 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2.
To shuffle and begin the game a minimum of one player is required. At each table a maximum of 6 seated players can participate.
