It is believed that Jonathan Green created the game during his explorations. However, normally people don’t create anything from nothing.

3-card poker is called a three-card poker game because you play with three cards in your hand against the dealer’s three-card hand. The dealer must be qualified with a high queen or higher to pay the raise bet. To start the game, you bet a round ante. You can also place an additional bet on the pair+ circle. After you get your three cards, you either fold, which deals down your ante bet or raise by placing a bet the same size as your ante bet in the raise circle. If you raise and the dealer doesn’t qualify, you get equal money on your ante bet, and the raise bet is a push. When you raise and the dealer qualifies and you have a better hand than the dealer, your ante and raise the bet to get equal money. There are bonuses paid out on your ante bet for certain hands.
The usual payout table for ante bonuses is a straight payout 1 to 1, three of the same wins payout 4 to 1, and a straight flush pays out 5 to 1. Pair Plus has different payout tables in different casinos, but generally pays out 1 to 1. 1 for a pair, 4 to 1 for a flush, 6 to 1 for a straight, 25 to 1 for a three, and 35 to 1 for a straight flush.
Four-card poker is played the same way as three-card poker except that the dealer is always qualified. The player gets five cards and the dealer gets six, five closed and one face up. Each forms his or her best poker combination of four cards.
The player bets an ante to start the game and must make another bet of one to three antes to stay in the hand after receiving his cards. Bonuses are paid for certain hands, and additional bets are also available.
