Win Three Cards is a game I've never seen before by Asia Gaming. It's kind of like baccarat, but the two hands always get three cards, which are scored like Three Card Poker, but with a different hand order, and a special "leopard killer" rule where an unsuited 2-3-5 beats a three of a kind.

There are also some side bets, which carry house edges up to 56.4%.

Please have a look and let me know your thoughts.

The question for the poll is would you play Win Three Cards? Multiple votes allowed.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Does unsuited mean 3 different suits or does 2 x and 1 y count?

I would not play this. All of the mental (no strategic decisions) and tactile (you're not touching cards, throwing dice or handling tiles) boredom of bacc with 2.5x the HE. Also, the 235 rule has to come up so infrequently, it seems absurd that it exists. Especially for a game that was invited today. There's no reason for it.

Also, are all three cards flipped over at once or one at a time? The main sweat at bacc is when your hand get a third card and you know what you're hoping for. If this games flips all 3 cards at once, you lose that sweat.
If anyone gives you 10,000 to 1 on anything, you take it. If John Mellencamp ever wins an Oscar, I am going to be a very rich dude.
