Crazy 4 Poker® is an easy game to master. It offers play against the dealer and an optional Queens UpSM side bet. You receive five cards to make your best four-card poker hand. A four-card straight is a straight, a four-card flush is a flush, etc.
Player vs Dealer
Make equal bets on the anter and Super Bonus spots.After seeing your cards, you can fold or stay in the game by making the play wager. The play wager must match your ante unless you have a pair of aces or better. If you have at least a pair of aces, you may bet up to three times your ante. The dealer qualifies with a king-high or better.
When you beat the dealer’s qualifying hand, your ante and play bets win even money. When the dealer qualifies and beats your hand, your ante and play bets lose. When the dealer does not qualify your play bet wins and our ante bet pushes. Super Bous and queens Up wagers are resolved normally.
Super Bonus. The Super Bonus wins when you have a straight or better. Failure to get at least a straight, however, does not result in an automatic loss. The Super Bonus pushes when you have less than a straight, but you still beat or tie the dealer’s hand. If your hand of a straight or better loses to the dealer, you still receive the Super Bonus payout. In addition your origina Super Bonus bet is not removed.
Queens Up. The Queens Up optional bonus bet wins when you receive a pair of queens or better. See layout for odds.
Please Note: Winning Super Bonus and Queens Up wagers are paid regardless of the dealer’s hand

- Players now have a choice: a. Check (do nothing); or
- Once players bet, they cannot bet again and they cannot change their bet.
- The dealer then places the first three community cards (the flop) face-up on the layout.

- The dealer then reveals his two hole cards and announces his five-card hand.
- The dealer needs a pair to qualify.
- Caution: Ultimate Texas Hold’em handles qualifying differently than other games. When the dealer doesn’t qualify, it’s not an automatic win for the player.
b. Make a Play bet of 3x or 4x their Ante.
b. Make a Play bet of 2x their Ante.
