Also known as yablon, ace-deuce, in between, and between the sheets, red dog is a card game that was introduced to the casinos in Nevada in the 1980's.
The game is played on blackjack-sized tables with a shoe holding six decks of cards. There is one dealer and can be up to as many as 16 players.
Red Dog Card Values
The card values for the game are as follows:
- two through ten are worth their face value
- jacks are worth 11
- queens are worth 12
- kings are worth 13
- aces are worth 14
Play commences when the player places a bet and the dealer removes two cards from the shoe and places them face up on the table. The player then decides whether or not to raise the bet. The dealer deals a third card and if the value of the card falls between the values of the other two cards, the player is a winner.
Original bets are payed out at even money, and raise bets are payed out according to a scale, where the closer the two cards are together, the better the payout is.
Red Dog Payouts
The payouts for different spreads are as follows:
- 1 card spread pays 5:1
- 2 card spread pays 4:1
- 3 card spread pays 2:1
- 4 to 11 card spread pays even money
A push results when the dealer deals out two consecutive cards or a pair. When a pair is dealt, the dealer immediately deals a third card. If the result is a three of a kind, the player is payed out 11:1.
Red Dog Hint
- it makes the most sense to raise on those hands that have a spread of seven or more.
