Betway CasinoBetway is a Microgaming Casino that comes from the same group that run the Hippodrome Online Casino. They have been around for years but it’s only recently that we have seen adverts for Betway Casino appearing on our TV screens.

If you visit the main Betway site you’ll see that in addition to casino they also have Live Casino, Sports and In Play Betting, a Poker site and a Bingo site. The casino requires no download for you to play the games and comes with a comprehensive set of Slots, Table Games, Video Poker and Instant Win games.

Of course we are interested in 3 Card poker of which there are three RNG 3 Card Poker games to choose from.

  • 3 Card Poker

    A 3 card poker game that has the Pairs Plus side bet / game.

  • 3 Card Poker Gold

    A 3 card poker game with the Pairs Plus side bet / game.

  • Multi Hand 3 card poker

    Where you can play up to 5 hands at the same time.

Although Betway have a Microgaming Live Casino they only have Live Blackjack, Live Roulette and Live Baccarat on offer. You’ll find live 3 card poker at casinos like William Hill & BetVictor.


The 3 Card poker games can be accessed from the Casino tab. Select Table Games and they are listed in the first row.

There is little difference between the three games, except of course you can play up to 5 hands on the Multi hand game.  The stake levels are all the same £1 – £200.  Pairs plus is available as either a side bet or a game in it’s own right (you don’t have to place an Ante bet to play it on its own).

I wouldn’t recommend it as the probability of hitting a winning hand is lower than for the Ante bet, i.e you only need a high card and the dealer to qualify with a Queen to win at 1:1 but you need a pair to win 1:1 on Pairs plus!

If you are playing Pairs Plus then the return for the Flush bet is 4:1, whereas at William Hill you only get 3:1 on the RNG game. But you only get a Straight Flush odds (40:1) on a Royal Flush at Betway, rather than 200:1 paid at William Hill.

Customer Support

Betway provide customer support on a 24 x 7 basis.  Telephone, Live Chat and Email can all be used to contact the support team. To be honest I’ve not had to use them but in a test I did on live Chat, I was connected to a support person within 10 seconds of opening the chat window.  I was number one in the queue though so you’d expect a quick response, but this was at 8:30 pm a peak time for most online casinos.!
