Red Dog is a casino game that is played with a standard 52-card deck. Two cards are dealt, and players try to predict whether the third card between the first two cards fall. The cards are valued at traditional poker face values, counted with an Ace as the highest value card.
Red Dog is a popular game in land-based casinos and online casinos as well. Many patrons of online casinos prefer these really simple game to play compared to some complicated games. It is also a fast game that the players earn a lot of profits if he plays his cards right.
How to Play Red Dog
Players place their bets before the dealer draws two cards. These cards are placed face up so that players can see their value. What happens next depends on the value of the first two cards are dealt:
If the two cards are the same value (for example, two Kings) is a third card, and if it is the same value again (eg the dealer three kings), then the player wins 11.01 clock on their first use. When the third card is not the same value that the hand is a push.
If the two cards are continually evaluated (eg, 5 and 6, or a Queen and King), then the third card can not possibly fall between the first two, so the game is a push and the beginning of the player’s bet is returned.
If there is a difference between the first two cards, the player may decide to increase their first bet, and win if the third card between the first two rated. “Between” is higher than the low value card and below the high value card – for example, a 5 is 4-9, but 4 is not won 4-9 as the amount if the third card between the cases. first two depends on the size of the spread (see “Payouts in Red Dog” below). This spread is marked on the table by the dealer, so you do not have to work it out themselves. Of course, if the third card is outside the range between the first two cards, the player the first use and increasing loses if one was made.
Payouts in Red Dog
Three cards of the same value pays 11:01 on the first use
A winning single card spread pays 5.01 first use and Raise (IF)
A winning two card spread pays 4:01 on the first use and Raise (IF)
A winning three card spread pays 2.01 to the first use and Raise (IF)

The house edge in Red Dog varies slightly be used depending on the number of decks in play, but for a standard single-deck game, it is 3.1%. An interesting thing to know about Red Dog, is that the more decks used in the game, the lower the house edge, falling to 2.8% in a six-deck game.
Optimum Red Dog Strategy
The best Red Dog strategy is to simply increase, if there is a scattering of 7 or more. This is because all these spreads even pay money, but you have a greater than 50% chance they have. The number of decks does not change this strategy.
This is easily shown by considering a six card spread in a single deck game. There are 24 winning cards (6 values, each of which 4 are suites) stay of 50, which corresponds to a 48% chance of winning. However, spread with a 7-card, there are 28 winning cards stay of 50, which corresponds to a 56% chance of winning.
