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 Blackjack Switch.
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 this game.
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.
