Red Dog is a card game that is now available on the internet thanks to Net Entertainment. The basics of the game are not complicated, You make a bet before the hand starts, the “ante” bet. Then two cards are dealt and if they are not the same or are not consecutive, a third card will be dealt, The success of the player depends on whether the third card fits in the numerical gap between the first two cards.
There are a variety of different payoffs possible in Red Dog depending on the gap between the first two cards. If there are four or more cards between the two and one of those four appears as the third card, the payoff is even money. A three card gap pays 2-1, two cards pays 4-1 and if the gap is only one card, the payoff is 5-1.
The player can increase the size of his bet after the first two cards appears, but usually he shouldn't do it because the payoffs are not favourable. For example, when there is just one card between the first two, the odds should be more than 10-1. There are 50 cards left in the deck and only 4 of them can help you. But the payoff is only 5-1.
The time to increase your bet in Red Dog is when the odds are definitely in your favour. This happens when the gap gets big. When the number of possible winning cards is as few as 7 or as many as 11, the even money payoff is quite generous. If the gap is 7, that means there are 28 cards in the deck that could win and only 22 that can't. The true payoff should be less than even money. For a higher split than 7, especially 10 or 11. the odds become even more generous.
If the first two cards are consecutive numbers, then there are no bets. It is considered a push and all money is refunded. If the first two cards are the same, then there is the possibility of the biggest payoff in the game. If the third card dealt is the same number as the first two, the player is paid 11-1. The payoff should be a lot higher, since there are only 2 cards that can make it three of a kind and 50 that can't. However, if three of a kind does not come in, then it's considered a push and you get back your ante.
