3 Card Brag

Openbet Dealer 3 Card Brag

There are several casino sites offering dealer 3 Card Brag, where you play against the house, not other players. The review below covers William Hill, Paddy Power Games, and Bet Victor, who all use the same Openbet (previously Orbis) software.

The Software And Game

You don’t need to download the software that’s offered to you, as you can play the game in a flash powered pop-up window, once you find it. If you don’t fancy staking any cash the sites also helpfully offer a demo mode that you can try without the need to login and fund you account.

The game itself is a table version against the house. You start by placing a bet in the Ante, and an optional Pair Bonus side bet. You are dealt your cards and then from there you decide whether to play or fold. There is no option to discard any of your cards, you play with the hand you’re dealt. If you decide to play you make a further bet equal to your Ante stake. If you win you get double the money back from the dealer, your stake and theirs. Their are additional bonuses available depending on your win:

  • For a Run: 1-1
  • For a Running Flush: 4-1
  • For a Prial: 5-1

However, if you have a stake on the Pair Bonus you can get extra winnings should you have a double or more. The Pair Bonus also only comes into play should you win the hand. If you don’t you don’t get anything. The odds on the Pair Bonus are as follows:

  • For a Prial: 40-1
  • For a Running Flush: 30-1
  • For a Run: 6-1
  • For a Flush: 4-1
  • For a Pair: 1-1

If you decide to play, you see the dealers hand, then depending on who has the best hand – the winner takes the money. It’s worth noting that the dealer always plays on their hand. However, if the dealer has anything less than Queen high, the dealers hand does not qualify and you get your stake back.

Lobby, Tables And Tournaments

There are no lobby or alternate tables. It’s just you and the dealer. Not surprisingly there’s no tournaments on offer either.

Conclusion

Ok, so it’s little more than trumped up Pontoon and you only play against the house. It’s not going to give any Brag player the excitement of playing against real life players in a full on competition. That said, it does offer a fun alternative that’s ideal for dropping in for a few minutes of play to sharpen your hold ’em or fold ’em skills.
