Three way action is three games in one. The player may make any number and combination of them. There is also an optional blackjack side bet. The game is played with a single deck of cards that is shuffled after every hand.
Following are the betting options.
- Blackjack: The player may play blackjack under normal house rules. If the player reaches 7 cards without busting (which rarely happens) it is an automatic winner. The house edge will depend on the table rules.
- Combat: Player’s first card against Dealer’s up card, highest card wins. A player win pays even money. Dealer wins half on a tie. House edge of 2.94%.
- Seven Card Showdown: Additional cards are added to player’s and dealer’s final blackjack hands to make seven each. The best poker hand wins. Dealer must have at least an ace high to qualify. If dealer doesn’t qualify then the players wins 1/2 their bet, otherwise a win pays even money. House edge of 3.23%.
There is also a side bet titled Bonus Action based on the player’s final seven cards. The following table shows the winning hands, their probability, what they pay, and the return.
