How to Play:
In Online Red Dog, you are dealt two cards face up. The goal of Red Dog is to get a third card to rank in between the first two dealt cards. Once you have been dealt the two cards and you thnk the third card will rank in between those two, you raise the bet. If you are not so sure as towhat rank the third card will have you may continue without raising your bet. If your first two cards are of the same value, you stand to win a 11:1 payout if the next card is of the same value. Otherwise you push and your wagered amount is returned to you.
Once you enter the Red Dog game from The Virtual Casino lobby, you will see the empty table in front of you along with 5 casino chips laid out on the table's border. The value of each of the chips you will see is $1, $5, $25, $100, and $500. You will be able to select the amount you would like to bet on each hand by clicking on those chips, depending on the size of your playable bankroll. If you would like to bet $60 on your next hand, you would simply click the $25 chip twice, and then click the $5 chip 2 times to bring the total chip count placed in the betting box to $60. To remove chips from your bet, you simply click on the chips already placed in the betting box and they will be removed and placed back in your bankroll.
(NOTE: you can only remove chips from your bankroll before you have dealt the hand. Once the deal starts, all bets are final.)

Red Dog Tip 1: The wider the spread is between your first two cards, the more chances you have at winning the game. Try getting a spread of 7 or more.
Red Dog Tip 2: Red Dog is a game of math therefore don't follow your gut. As tempting as it may be to enjoy the big payouts of a low spread hand, chances are that most of the times you will end up losing your bet. Only raise your bet when having a big spread between the two cards.
Red Dog Tip 3: Start playing the game for fun, as you get more experienced then play for real.
