We think players are going to like these new options a lot," said Roger Snow, Shuffle Master Executive Vice President and Chairman of the Corporate Products Group.
"With these upgrades, the base game stays the same. These bonus bets are just some added nuances to make each game more interesting and fun," Snow added.
Here’s a recap of the new table game upgrades and side bets:
Dealer Bonus: This side bet lets players wager on the strength of the dealer’s hand. Dealer Bonuses are available for Three Card Poker, Four Card Poker, Ultimate Texas Hold’em, Crazy 4 Poker, Texas Hold’em Bonus and Ultimate Draw Poker.
Six Card Bonus: This side bet is offered on Three Card Poker. Players may wager that their three cards and the dealer’s three cards will contain two pair or better.
Three Card Poker Mini Royal Edition: This upgraded version of Three Card Poker offers payouts as high as 200 to 1 when a player receives an Ace-King-Queen suited.
These new upgrades are currently available in many North American gaming jurisdictions including Nevada, California, Mississippi and on cruise ships. Additionally, the company is pursuing approvals in other markets as well.
