BASICS:
4 Card Poker is a casino table game played against the dealer. It is similar to Three Card Poker but, as the name says, is based on four cards. The player receives five cards to make their best four-card poker hand. The dealer receives six cards to make their best four-card poker hand. There is no hand for the dealer to qualify with. A four card straight is a straight, a four card flush is a flush, and a four card straight flush is a straight flush. The game was developed by Roger Snow for ShuffleMaster.

ANTE:
Place a bet amount on the Ante betting circles. Optionally, place an Aces Up wager on the Aces Up betting circle. Once the bets are placed, you receive 5 cards and the dealer receives 6 cards (with the last card dealt face up).

RAISE:
After seeing your cards, you either fold or stay in the game by making the Play bet. The Play bet must be at least the amount of your ante, and can be up to three times your ante.

You and the dealer now make your best four card poker hand. If the dealer's hand is higher, the player loses the Ante and Raise. If the player's hand is higher or equal then the Ante and Raise shall pay one to one.

AUTOMATIC BONUS:
If the player has at least a three of a kind the player will also be paid a Bonus. This bonus is paid even if the dealer has a better four card hand. It pays based on the following payout table:
 

Hand Payout
4-of-a-Kind 25 to 1
Straight Flush 20 to 1
Three of a Kind 2 to 1


ACES UP:
The optional Aces Up bet is the player's hand versus the posted paytable. It takes a pair of Aces or better to win. And this bet is not affected by what the dealer's hand is. It pays based on the following payout table:



Hand Payout
4-of-a-Kind 50 to 1
Straight Flush 30 to 1
Three of a Kind 7 to 1
Flush 6 to 1
Straight 5 to 1
Two-Pair 2 to 1
Pair of Aces 1 to 1


JACKPOT:
The jackpot bet is an optional $1 side bet. The payoff of this side bet is based on a progressive jackpot for straight flushes (10% of jackpot) and royal flushes (100%). The jackpot bet is payed using the following payout table:

Hand Payout
Four Aces 100% of Jackpot
4-of-a-Kind $300
Straight Flush $100
Three of a Kind $15
