Boston 7 Stud Poker

The object of the game is for the player to achieve a higher poker hand than the dealer, according to standard rules of poker.

General Overview

To start the game, each player shall place an ante bonus wager and has the option to place a bet in the 1st wager position prior to the dealer announcing “No More Bets.” The Ante Wager amount will be equal to the amount of the 1st wager. All optional 3 card bonus bets must be placed at this time. Each player and the dealer will be dealt three consecutive cards face down. Players are not allowed to make an optional 3 card bonus bet without placing the ante and first wager.

After players view their cards, they have the option of folding or placing a 2nd wager equal to their 1st wager. Players that have a 3 card bonus hand will place their hand face up on the table so the dealer can award them their bonus. No 3 card bonus claims will be allowed once the dealer has dealt the final four cards. Players that have made a 2nd wager will receive their four final consecutive cards dealt face down. If a player elects to fold, he/she will lose all wagers placed on the ante bonus and 1st wager positions.

Once all players who have placed a second wager have reviewed and using the seven cards dealt, have placed their five card hand face down on the layout, the dealer will then expose his or her seven cards and proceed to make the best five card poker hand by arranging the cards by standard poker ranking. Upon receiving their four additional cards, each player will discard 2 of their cards in the spot marked 2 discards. The player’s five card hand is then compared to the dealer’s five card hand. If the dealer’s five card poker hand beats the player’s hand, the dealer collects the ante bonus wager as well as the 1st and 2nd wagers. If the player’s hand ties that of the dealer, the hand is a push. Winning hands are paid 1-to-1 on the 1st and 2nd wagers position. Players are allowed to wager solely on the ante bonus without placing any other wagers to participate in the Boston 7 stud poker game. A player who elects not to place a wager in the 1st or 2nd positions will not qualify to receive a payout in either of those positions. If a player has placed a bet solely on the ante bonus position, each player will have their bonus wager settled in the same order as the other players.

Wager Payouts

Optional Thee-Card Bonus Wager
After making the ante and first wager, a player may make an additional optional bonus wager by placing a gaming chip on the designated betting area on the layout. An optional bonus wager enables the player to win additional payouts based on the first three cards dealt to the player.

Winning optional bonus wagers payouts are as follows:

  • Three Card Royal Flush: 35 to 1
  • Three Card Straight Flush: 30 to 1
  • Three of a Kind: 25 to 1
  • Three Card Straight: 5 to 1
