Red Dog Review

Screen shots of the games


This game is provided by Slotty Vegas

Red Dog is simple to learn and very fast to play. The player places an initial bet then two cards are dealt face up on the table. If the two cards are of consecutive rank (for example 2 or 3 or a Jack and a Queen) the player’s bet is returned.

If the two cards are the same rank a third card is dealt. If the third card is of the same rank as the first two the player’s bet is paid at 11:1.

If the third card is not of the same rank, the player’s bet is returned. Lastly if the two cards are of different ranks and more than one rank apart (5 and a 7 or a 9 and a Q) the player has the option to put out a second bet, equal to the first. Regardless of whether the player puts the extra bet out or not a third card will be dealt. If the rank of the third card is in between the ranks of the first two cards, both the player’s bets are paid according to the paytable below, otherwise the player loses all wagers. Aces are always considered high, and the ‘Rank Gap’ column denotes how many ranks are in between the values of the first two cards.

Rank Gap Payout
1 5:1
2 4:1
3 2:1
4 1:1
5 1:1
6 1:1
7 1:1
8 1:1
9 1:1
10 1:1
11 1:1

So for example if the first two card dealt were a 5 and an 8, the Rank Gap would be 2 (6 and 7 are in between the two cards). If the third card is either a 6 or a 7 the player will be paid at 4:1, any other rank and the player loses all their wagers.

The best strategy for Red Dog is very simple. You should only place the extra bet if the Rank Gap is 7 or higher.
