Three Card Shine (developed by Aces Up Gaming) has started a field trial at the Hard Rock in Lake Tahoe. The game is essentially a clone of 3-Card Poker with a few tweaks added to the side bets. Here is the table layout...




The "Pair XXX" bet is equivalent to Pair Plus except it pays 3 Aces at 40 to 1. There is no Mini Royal. Although the image shows a flush paying 4 to 1, I doubt that's true on a brick and mortar table.

The "Super 6 Bonus" is equivalent to the 6 Card Bonus except there's no pay for 3OAK. Instead, it adds a 30 to 1 pay line for 3 Pair between the Full House and 4OAK.

The Trial ends 10/01/19



Edit: There also seems to be a progressive in the works...


Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

If anyone has a chance to visit Tahoe, I'd be interested in the pay tables used.

That may be the only reason the game exists. If royalties are paid for being a derivative of Three Card Poker I canít imagine the base game being a better deal for players. The moonshine marketing angle is puzzling, and very weak. That leaves the progressive. Adding a progressive to a game seems very much in fashion lately. A proven way to entice players to wager $5 on a bet with a Keno-range house edge.

3 card poker and the pairs plus side bet are recently out of patent protection. Chances are (speculation ) the progressive is a way to make royalties and charge for the table. But nobody has to pay to deal the base game or PP any more.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Good for game developers to know that.
I would still agree with BleedingChipsSlowly. Its a way to induce customers to make what might otherwise be viewed as doubtful bets: use the magic word 'progressive'. I can just see casinos marketing their tier levels the same way: If you hit a progressive you get the full payout only if you are in our highest tier.
