Let it ride is a kind of combination of video pokers and Caribbean Stud but is probably simpler than both of those which makes let it ride poker good for beginners to online casino poker. Whereas Caribbean stud is played against a dealer hand, let it ride poker has only one hand and if it is good enough it wins. Good enough in let it ride poker is generally a pair of tens or better. There is also no changing of cards as is the case in some video poker games so let it ride becomes a simple question of deciding whether or not you can achieve a pair of tens or better.

There are then three cards dealt face up to the player and two more face down and at that moment the first decision has to be made about your first bet and that is whether to let it ride or withdraw it. This means for example that if you placed three bets of €5 each you started by staking €15 on the hand but having seen your first three cards you can withdraw €5 leaving you with a bet of €10 on the hand. Whichever you decide to do in let it ride poker play continues with one of the two face down cards being turned over so that you can now see four cards and again you have the chance to withdraw a €5 bet or let it ride. Eventually the fifth card is turned and the outcome decided. The better your hand in let it ride poker the better the odds at which you are paid.
