How to play Let it Ride Poker at William Hill Casino

Let it Ride is one of the youngest members of the poker family and it was specifically designed by a casino utility company to promote their newly conceived automated shuffling machine. It is hugely popular amongst the more mature punters as it offers the option of withdrawing bets once the cards have been scrutinised, and as a consequence, the risk factor is limited.

Let it Ride Bonus Feature

The William Hill Casino offers an extra bonus feature and the player can collect if he, or she, has bet the required £1 by clicking the red button underneath the bonus payout signage on the table. As with all variants of poker, the objective of the game is to achieve the highest possible traditional poker hand while managing to retain the maximum wager on the table. Always remember that a minimum of a pair of tens is required to win.

Managing the Bets

Play starts with an equal bet being placed on the three designated areas on the table – 1, 2 and $. Three cards are dealt face up and the player can then decide whether to stand, or Let it Ride, or to withdraw the first bet at the table by clicking on the ‘Pull Bet’ button. Regardless of the player’s choice, the dealer will expose a fourth card, and again the punter may choose to ‘Let it Ride’ or ‘Pull Bet’, and the fifth and final card will then be dealt. At this stage the player is not given the choice to pull the bet, and the remaining bet always stands. Should the punter win, he is paid out according to the payouts visible on the table, but only for the bet or bets remaining in play.
