When looking at the various forms of casino game out there, one that might take your fancy is the intriguingly named Red Dog. This particular game has become highly popular among those who like games which are fun, fast-paced, and pretty easy to learn the rules to. Indeed, if you were to play Red Dog for even a couple of hours, you will probably get to know every little rule in the game!
The Rules of the Game
The object of the game is extremely simple – you want to have more chips than the other players come the end of the game. Cards are ranked in the same way they normally are, with Ace highest an a 2 the lowest card you can pull out. Chips are then given to players, and each player placed a chip in the middle of the table for the first pot.
The cards are then deal out, one at a time, face-up. The player with the highest value card is then the initial dealer. The dealer then hands out five cards, one at a time, all face down for each player starting with the nearest player on the left. The players, starting from the left, are then given the chance to bet on their cards strength via more chips. If you do not wish to bet, you forfeit a single chip into the pot anyway.
Once all bets are made, the dealer will take the card from the top of the pack and turn it over – the player who has a card of the same suit and of a higher rank will then take back the amount of their bet, as well as an equivalent out of the pot.
The next player then places a bet, another card is turned, and the procedure is followed until each player has played and either won or lost.
