(1) Let it ride may be played only on tables designated by the licensee for the play of let it ride. Let it ride bonus may be played only on tables designated by the licensee for the play of let it ride bonus. Let it ride progressive may be played only on tables designed by the licensee for the play of let it ride progressive. A single deck of cards must be used. Players do not play against the dealer or against any other player. Each player may play only one hand following each shuffle of the deck. Winning hands are determined and paid according to the payment schedule which must be displayed as part of the table layout;
(2) Each player must make three equal bets by placing the bets in the three designated wagering areas in front of the player's position. Where let it ride bonus is offered, each player may place an additional bonus bet that awards a bonus payout to the player who receives a poker hand consisting of certain card combinations as listed in subdivision (9) below. Where let it ride progressive is offered, each player may place an additional progressive bet that awards a bonus payout to the player who receives a poker hand consisting of certain card combinations as listed in subdivision (10). The bonus bet or the progressive bet is placed on the sensor in front of the player's position. Where the three card bonus optional side bet is offered, each player may place an additional bonus bet that awards a bonus payout to the player who receives three card combinations as listed in subdivision (9) of this section. This three card bonus bet is placed in the wagering area identified as such. After each player has had the opportunity to place his or her wagers, the dealer ensures that the red bonus bet sensor is illuminated for each player who has placed a bonus bet or progressive bet, the dealer will then announce, "No more bets." The dealer will collect the bonus bets or progressive bets and place the bets in the chip tray;
(3) Any dealer tip delivered as a wager must be placed as a single wager above the player's let it ride third wagering area (marked as "$"), or next to the players 3 card bonus wager, to be settled at the end of the play of the hand at the odds listed and in accordance with the payment schedules;
(4) If the cards are hand dealt, immediately before the start of play and after each round of play has been completed, the dealer must shuffle the cards. Following shuffle and cut, the dealer deals three cards to each player and two cards to the dealer, face downward and one at a time in clockwise rotation among the players and the dealer (the dealer does not receive a card in the third rotation). If a mechanical shuffling device which dispenses cards in three-card groups is being used, the first player to receive cards is the player to the left of the dealer; the dealer receives cards last. The dealer plays the top two cards of the group dealt to the dealer. The bottom card of the three-card group is not played and is placed in the discard rack without being viewed. The dealer's remaining two cards are used as community cards. After all cards have been dealt, the dealer places the remaining cards into the discard rack without exposing the cards;
(5) After a player looks at the players cards, the player may ask for the player's first bet back or may let all of the wagers remain in play. The players act in order, beginning with the first player to the dealer's left and moving clockwise. If a player chooses to withdraw bet number one, the dealer moves the player's wager toward the player, who must then remove the wager from the gaming area. After all players have acted, the first of the dealer's cards is turned up for all players to see and to use as a community card;
(6) After the first community card, the player may ask for the players second bet back or may let all of the players wagers remain in play. The players again act in order, beginning with the first player to the dealers left and moving clockwise. If a player chooses to withdraw bet number two, the dealer moves the players wager toward the player, who must then remove the wager from the gaming area. The player then tucks the players cards under the ($) bet. After all players have acted, the second of the dealers cards is turned up for all players to see and to use as a second community card. Each player now has a complete five-card hand, using the three cards the player was dealt together with the two community cards;
(7) After the second community card has been turned face up, the dealer, beginning with the player to the dealer's right, turns each player's three cards face up. The dealer examines each player's hand, in combination with the two community cards, to determine if the player's hand is a winning or a losing hand. To qualify as a winning hand for a basic payout, a player's hand must contain a pair of tens or better. In order to also qualify for a bonus payout after having placed a bonus bet, the player's hand must contain certain card combinations as listed in subdivision (9) of this section. The 3 card bonus wager is based on the players three cards (does not include the dealers community cards) and will pay all winning bets according to the pay schedules listed in subdivision (9);
(8) During the pay and take sequence, all losing bets must be taken. The dealer resolves the players hands, in turn, starting with the dealers right and moving counter-clockwise around the table. All winning bets will be paid according to the pay schedules listed in subdivisions (9) and (10). The dealer will first resolve the players let it ride wagers, the players let it ride bonus wager if placed, and the players 3 card bonus wager if placed, then the progressive wager if placed. The dealer continues the pay and take sequence with each player counter-clockwise around the table;

iii. If a player has a progressive winner, the dealer shall press the appropriate button on the keypad. If the button is pressed by accident, the dealer shall press the button again to turn it off;
iv. If there is a progressive winner, the dealer shall contact a supervisor;
v. If more than one progressive hand payable from the progressive meter hits at the same table during the same time, house procedures are then followed for paying the prize;
