‚Red Dog‘, also known as 'Yablon', Acey Deucey' or 'In Between', is a casino game of chance played with cards.
The deck used to play ‚Red Dog‘ is the standard, fiftytwo poker deck. The game may be played from one to eight decks, with an increasing number of decks decreasing the house edge. ‚Red Dog Star‘ uses 6 decks.
The game only uses three cards at a time, which are ranked with the ace as highest card (14 points) and the two as lowest card (2 points). Suit is irrelevant.
A wager, called 'ante' is placed, and two cards are placed face up on the table.
Following situations are possible:
Consecutive: If the cards are consecutive in number (for example, a four and a five, or a jack and a queen), the hand is a push and the player's wager is returned.
Pair: If the two cards are of equal value, a third card is dealt without a raise of the ante bet. If the third card is of the same value as the first two cards, then it's called a 'Red Dog' and the payout for the player is 11:1, otherwise the hand is a push.
If neither of the above is the case (for example, a three and an eight), then a spread is announced which determines the payoff (a 4-card spread, in this example), and a third card will be dealt. Before dealing the third card, the player has the option to raise his bet. If the third card's value falls between the first two, the player will receive a payoff according to the spread; otherwise the bet is lost.
