High card flush is played with a standard 52-card deck. Multiple wagers are available. Ranking of hands are based upon the number of cards of the same suit (flush) in the player’s or dealer’s hand. Ante and raise wagers compare the player’s hand to the dealer’s hand. Optional bonus wagers compare the player’s hand to a pre-selected pay table. Bonus wagers remain active even if the player folds and forfeits the ante wager.
Each player must place an ante wager prior to the dealer announcing “No More Bets”. The player may also place an optional flush bonus and/or straight flush bonus wager at this time. The outcome of the bonus wager has no bearing on any other wager placed by the player. Each player and the dealer will be dealt seven cards face down. The object is to have more cards of the same suit than the dealer. If both the dealer and the player have the same number of cards in their flush, the winning hand is determined by the highest ranking card (ace – 2) of the flush in each hand. If the highest ranking card is the same in both hands, the second highest ranking card is compared. This rule will be followed until a winner or a tie is determined. If both the number of cards and values are identical, the ante and raise wagers are a tie (push). A straight flush has no significance when comparing the player’s hand to the dealer’s hand.
After players view their cards, players have the option to fold and forfeit their ante or place a raise wager in an amount up to 3x the ante wager, depending on how many cards are suited. two, three or four suited cards – raise 1x; five suited card – Raise 2x; Six or Seven suited cards – Raise 3x. If the player folds, the ante wager is collected by the dealer and placed in the table inventory container. The folded hand shall be immediately collected by the dealer and placed in the discard rack. If the player is folding but qualifies for a bonus payout, the player will place face down the cards not being used and will place the qualifying hand face up on top of the face down cards. If they are placing a raise wager and have a qualifying bonus hand in the cards to be discarded, they will discard those cards face up. The bonus wager will be settled immediately and the discards will be turned face down to be collected with all other discarded cards. Once the players have acted upon their hands, the dealer’s cards are exposed. If the dealer’s hand does not qualify (meet or exceed a nine high three card flush), all remaining players will receive an an even money payout on their ante wager and their raise wager will be a push. If the dealer’s hand does qualify and the player’s hand beats the dealer’s hand, the ante and raise wager win and the dealer shall pay the Ante and Raise wager even money. If the dealer’s hand beats the player’s hand, the ante and raise wager lose. If the dealer’s and player’s hand tie, the ante and raise wager push.
Players are not allowed to discuss or show each other their hands. Cards must remain above the table in full view at all times.
Flush Bonus wagers win when the player’s hand matches one of the hands on the pre-selected pay table even if they have folded their hand on the ante wager. Only the highest qualifying hand is paid.
