1. How Let Em Ride Works

Online Let ‘Em Ride is kind of like a one-person poker, without the attendant ability to cheat.

Like most online table games with poker roots, your goal is to get the highest winning combination of cards.

But online Let ‘Em Ride is different. That’s because you have two chances to change your bet.

This is how to play online Let ‘Em Ride with yours truly:

Round 1: Place your Ante and decide for Bet #1

Place your Ante bet ($5-$500) in the first circle and hit “deal”.

You receive three cards face up. Two community cards are dealt face down. Look at your cards, and decide on your move. If you’re satisfied with your cards, hit “Raise” to add the same amount as your original ante. If not, click “Continue” to proceed to the next round without placing an additional bet.

Round 2: Decide for bet #2

The first community card is revealed. Based on the strength of your four cards, decide if you want to Raise for a bet equal to your initial ante, or Continue without placing a bet.

Round 3: Collect your payout

Finally, the second community card is revealed. No more decisions here. If your final five-card hand is good, you’ll get paid out by its tier.

The payouts are as follows:

Hand                                             Payout
Royal Flush                                  1000:1
Straight Flush                              200:1
4of a Kind                                     50:1
Full House                                    11:1
Flush                                              8:1
Straight                                          5:1
3 of a Kind                                     3:1
2 Pair                                              2:1
Pair of 10s or better                    1:1

If you’re lucky enough to come out with a Royal Flush, hats off, pal. That’s money. The serious kind. But do you want to know what’s even better? Winning the Progressive, too.

Yep. Let ‘Em Ride for real money has a progressive jackpot, just like the other legendary online table games. It wouldn’t be a wild ride without it, right?

So how do you win it? We’ll help you to max your chances. It’s what we’re here for.

2. How to Win the Let Em Ride Progressive

The Progressive in online Let ‘Em Ride is an optional side bet. Most players, however, don’t consider it “optional.” It only costs $1 to be eligible, and it gives you the opportunity to win insane amounts of money (right now it’s at 28K). You have to click/tap the red circle to opt-in. If you don’t do this, you won’t be eligible. You don’t want that to happen unless you enjoy kicking your own shins.

This is what you can win with the Progressive:

Progressive                                Payouts
Royal Flush                                 100%
Straight Flush                             10%
4 of a Kind                                   $500
Full House                                   $100
Flush                                             $75

3. Let Em Ride Strategy

Let Em Ride Strategy

Many online table games don’t leave too much room for strategy. You win based on luck alone. Online Let ‘Em Ride is different. Like Blackjack, you can keep the house edge at its lowest (3.51%) by knowing what to do with your given hands.

Follow these tips:

When deciding on bet #1, raise if you have:

  • A pair of 10s or better, or three of a kind
  • Any three cards to a Royal Flush
  • Three consecutive cards to a Straight Flush, when the lowest card is 3
  • Three to a straight flush, with max one card missing from the sequence, and at least one that’s ten or higher
  • Three to a straight flush, with max two cards missing from the sequence, and at least two that are ten or higher

When deciding on bet #2, raise if you have:

  • A pair of 10s or better, or three of a kind
  • Any four cards to a flush, Straight Flush or a Royal Flush
  • Any four consecutive cards to a Straight Flush, with at least one that’s a 10 or higher

For the ultimate tip and the ultimate win, as usual, always play Progressive.
