Red Dog is a game where the object is to wager that the drawn card falls between the first and second drawn cards. Red Dog is also known as Acey-Deucey, Between the Sheets, and In the Middle.
A winning hand pays out according to the following odds:
|3 of a Kind||draw||11:1|
|Spread of 1||draw||5:1|
|Spread of 2||draw||4:1|
|Spread of 3||draw||2:1|
|Spread of 4-11||draw||1:1|
|Consecutive cards||no draw||Push|
To begin a round, the player places a bet (by hitting the "Deal" button) and the dealer deals two cards face up.
If the first two cards in a hand are sequential, the hand is considered "unplayable", then the player gets their bet back (a push).
If the first two cards are "playable", then the player can choose to play the hand as is, or double their inital bet.
When hand is played, the dealer shows the middle card, and if the card is between the other two cards (or makes a 3 of a kind when the first two are a pair), the hand is considered a winning hand. If the card does not fall between the first two, or if it is the same as one of the other two, then the hand is considered a losing hand.
Winning hands are paid out according to the payout chart shown in the table in the previous section.
The player starts with $1000.00 credit (strictly play money) and may bet any amount between $50.00 and $500.00 in increments of $50.00. The player may change this bet amount between rounds.
