How to play TCP StudSM
TCP StudSM is an exciting stud poker game. You may bet against the house hand, bet on paytable outcomes, or bet both. Bonus payouts may be had for certain hands when wagering against the house hand. TCP Stud also features the optional 6 Card Bonus and progressive side bets.
3 card bonus
The 3 Card Bonus side bet lets you bet against your own hand. If your hand contains a pair or better, you win!
|3 Card Bonus||Pays (to 1)|
|Three of a Kind||33|
Ante lets you play against the house’s hand. It’s just your cards against the house’s hand. If you make an ante bet and like your hand, you must place an equal wager on the raise spot. It’s your hand against the house’s poker hand, and the best hand wins!
To play all three
It’s you and your cards for a pair or better, and it’s you against the house hand for the best poker hand. Bet the 6 Card Bonus for an even larger payout. You must also make the raise wager or you will forfeit the ante wager.
The house’s hand must contain a Queen or above. If the house doesn’t qualify, your raise wager is a push, and your ante wager is paid even money.
If you make the ante and raise wagers, you may win a bonus payout even if the house hand doesn’t qualify, and even if the house’s hand beats your hand.
