By GT Staff | Already known for its liberal blackjack rules and 3-to-2 payouts
on all 21 games, the Four Queens Hotel & Casino in downtown Las Vegas has
added new table games to its floor.
Beginning May 1, patrons at the Four Queens will be able to play
Progressive Fortune Pai Gow Poker, along with other recently-added games,
California Draw Poker, World Championship Three Card Poker and
Here’s a brief player’s guide to the new games:
Progressive Fortune Pai Gow Poker: Players make a standard Pai
Gow wager and have the option to bet on the Fortune Bonus wager. If you make at
least a $5 Fortune wager, you qualify for Envy Bonus payouts, which win whenever
someone else at the table receives a four-of-a-kind or higher. The Four Queens
is the only downtown casino and one of only two casinos in Las Vegas to offer
the progressive version of the game; the Progressive Jackpot starts at $10,000.
California Draw Poker: Players are dealt four cards with one
card dealt face up. The dealer receives five cards but must use the face-up card
to finish his hand. Players are allowed to discard and draw one new card in
order to make the best four-card poker hand. Any four-of-a-kind pays 300-to-1
plus an ante bonus. The Four Queens is the only casino in the city to feature
World Championship Three Card Poker: While other downtown
casinos may offer Three Card Poker, the Four Queens is the only downtown
property with a World Championship-qualifying table. Players that make a
qualifying ante wager and receive an Ace-King-Queen suited win a 50-to-1 ante
bonus and an entry into a satellite event for a chance at a seat in the $1.2
million World Championship Tournament held in December.
The Four Queens was the first casino in Las Vegas to offer
Blackjack Switch, which was added to Binion’s Gambling Hall & Hotel, which
shares the same parent company as the Four Queens.
