 3-5-7 Poker - Official Rules 

3-5-7 Poker - Official Rules for playing in Colorado

The play – 3-5-7 Poker. 3-5-7 Poker is the trademarked poker variation game, the rights to which on November 21, 2003, were owned by Gaming Entertainment, Inc., Las Vegas, Nevada. 3-5-7 Poker must be played according to the following rules in Colorado:

  1. 3-5-7 Poker may be played only on tables displaying the 3-5-7 Poker table layout. A single deck of fifty-two (52) cards will be used. Each player may play only one 3-5-7 Poker hand following each shuffle of the deck. Each hand of 3-5-7 Poker consists of three games: 3-card poker, 5-card poker, and 7-card poker. Each hand of 3-5-7 Poker shall be complete after the dealer has settled all wagers made on the hand.
  2. Before receiving any cards, each player shall place a wager in the designated area on the layout. A player may wager on any one, two, or all three games in the hand. The amount of each wager shall be within the table limit, to be determined by the retail licensee, but not exceeding five dollars, and shall be posted at the table. If the retail licensee does not require a minimum wager, no table signage is required. A player who wishes to tip the dealer by making a bet for the dealer shall place the tip-bet next to the player’s wager for that game. Each retail licensee may allow or not allow tip-bets according to its policy. All tip-bets allowed shall be paid according to the posted pay schedule for player wagers.
  3. Immediately prior to each round of play, the dealer shall shuffle and cut the cards. The dealer shall deal a total of three cards face downward to each player who has made a wager and four community cards face downward to be used by all players in one of the following methods:
    1. The dealer will deal one card face down on the table and then deal a second card, also face down, on top of the first card. The dealer will deal a third card face down and scoop the three card stack and deliver the cards, still face down, to the first player. This procedure is repeated for each player that has made a wager on the game. The dealer then deals four community cards into the designated position on the layout for community cards. The dealer will place the remainder of the deck into the discard rack.
    2. The dealer will deal a card face down into the designated area for the first community card to the dealers left. The dealer will then deal one card face down in a clockwise rotation, from left to right, to each player who has made a wager. The dealer will then deal a second community card face down into the appropriate position on the layout and a second card face down in rotation to each player. This procedure is repeated for a third community card and a third player card. A final (fourth) community card is dealt face down to the appropriate position on the layout and the remainder of the deck is placed into the discard rack.
  4. If a shuffle device is used, the licensee shall have a second deck of cards at the table which are of a predominately different color back. As one deck is being shuffled by the machine, the other deck is in use. The decks are alternated between hands. The dealer shall deliver cards from the shuffling device in groups of three to each player and the dealer. To set the community cards, the dealer places the first group of three cards on the table, burning the bottom card and retaining two cards. The dealer places a second group of three cards on the table, once again burning the bottom card and retaining two cards. These four remaining cards are placed into the white and yellow rectangles, constituting the community cards.
  5. An incorrect number of cards dealt to any player or the dealer constitutes a misdeal; all wagers are void and all cards are picked up and re-shuffled. An exposed card does not constitute a misdeal. The dealer will turn the card over and continue to deal. An exposed community card will constitute a misdeal; all remaining wagers are void. If a player’s card falls from the table, that player’s hand is dead and that player’s wager(s) is void.
  6. At the discretion of the retail licensee, a player who has made a wager on all three games may be allowed to surrender half the wager on the 7-card game. The surrender option is only available for the 7-card wager.
  7. After each player has received and viewed the player’s first three cards, and has made the surrender decision, the player shall place the cards face down behind his wager or tuck the cards under the first wager. The dealer will expose, and spread each players cards in front of the players wagers on the layout, from right to left in a counter clockwise rotation. All wagers are also settled from right to left in a counter clockwise rotation.
    1. The dealer shall settle each player’s 3-card Poker wager by placing non-winning wagers in the table tray and paying winning wagers according to the posted pay schedule. If a player has not placed a wager on 5-card or 7-card games, the player’s cards shall be removed and placed in the discard rack.
    2. After all wagers on the 3-card Poker game have been settled, the dealer shall turn the first two community cards face up on the layout and announce “5-card Poker.” The 5-card Poker hand shall consist of the player’s 3-card poker hand and the first two community cards turned up by the dealer. The dealer shall settle each player’s 5-card poker wager by placing non-winning wagers in the table tray and paying winning wagers according to the posted pay schedule. If a player has not placed a wager on the 7-card game the player’s cards shall be removed and placed in the discard rack.
    3. After all wagers on the 5-card Poker game have been settled, the dealer shall turn the last two community cards face up on the layout and announce “7-card Poker.” The 7-card Poker hand shall consist of the player’s 3-card poker hand and the four community cards turned up by the dealer. The dealer shall settle each player’s 7-card poker wager by placing non-winning wagers in the table tray and paying winning wagers according to the posted pay schedule. The dealer shall then remove all of the remaining cards and place them in the discard rack for the next hand.
  8. Optional Player Banked Pot. In an optional version of play, the retail licensee may allow each player to place an optional additional wager on each 3-card, 5-card, and 7-card game of a posted amount, not to exceed five dollars. At the beginning of each game the optional additional wagers for that game are pulled to the center of the table in a pot and awarded, by the dealer, to the player with the best hand. No player may make an optional additional player-banked pot wager without having first made a pay schedule wager on that game. Only players who have made the optional additional wager for the player banked pot are eligible to win that pot.
    1. In the 3-card game, optional wagers are collected into a pot prior to the player’s 3-card hand being exposed, and the pot is awarded prior to pay schedule wagers being settled for the 3-card game. The retail licensee may collect a rake on the player-banked pot of not more than 10% or five dollars, whichever is less. The amount of rake must be posted at the table.
    2. In the 5-card game, optional wagers are collected into a pot prior to the first two community cards being exposed, and the pot is awarded prior to pay schedule wagers being settled for the 5-card game. The retail licensee may collect a rake on the player-banked pot of not more than 10% or five dollars, whichever is less. The amount of the rake must be posted at the table.
    3. In the 7-card game, optional wagers are collected into a pot prior to the last two community cards being exposed, and the pot is awarded prior to pay schedule wagers being settled for the 7-card game. The retail licensee may collect a rake on the player-banked pot of not more than 10% or five dollars, whichever is less. The amount of the rake must be posted at the table.
    4. If only one player has placed an additional optional player banked wager the dealer shall return the wager to the player as void. Two or more player must place the wager to form a pot.
  9. Any rake collected by the retail licensee shall be placed into the table tray and included in the calculation of AGP.
  10. The dealer shall collect all losing wagers and shall pay all winning wagers according to one of the following pay tables. The appropriate pay table shall be printed on the table layout or provided on table signage:
