Most people who have never played casino games at an online casino will be surprised at the range of casino games they can play. Almost all the major online casinos offer the best known casino games such as roulette and blackjack, and most also have a huge range of slots, but if you are looking for something slightly different why not try a game like Red Dog. Available at Bwin and now the new All Irish casino, Red Dog or as it is sometimes known ‘Between the Sheets’, is a very fast online casino game of pure chance played against the house. A standard 52 card deck is shuffled between each hand and just 3 cards are dealt, two of them face up with the third face down or blind, and usually positioned between the first two open cards. Before the deal the player will be asked to place an ante bet, at least equal to the minimum table stake, and then when the cards have been dealt the player has the opportunity to raise the stake if they think they may have a winning hand, which is simply that the blind card has a value between the two open cards. The pay out for a winning hand is usually even money, although there are exceptions which we will come to later, and the Ace is always high in the game of Red Dog. The principle of the online casino game of Red Dog couldn’t be simpler, but the decision as to whether to raise the stake can be more difficult. Clearly if the two open cards are consecutive numbers, it is not possible to achieve a winning hand with the blind card and the hand will be declared void, or a ‘Push’, with the ante bet returned to the player. If the two open cards are a pair, again the hand will be declared a Push unless the blind card is a match to the pair. If the player does have three matching cards, the pay out is much higher, normally 11/1 in these circumstances. The pay out can also be higher than even money if the two open cards have a spread between them of 3 or less. If you are looking for a fast and easy online casino game why not log on to All Irish casino and give it a go.
