S.D. Admin. R. 20:18:16:15.07 - The play - Twisted Pineapple poker

Twisted Pineapple poker must be played according to the following rules:

(1) Twisted Pineapple poker may be played only on tables designated by the licensee for the play of Twisted Pineapple poker. A single deck of cards must be used. Players do not play against the dealer, but have the option to play against other players. 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 a first bet. An ante bet must also be made at one-half the cost of the first bet, but not to exceed five dollars. Example: If first bet is $5.00, then ante bet must be $2.50. If first bet is $20.00, then ante bet must be $5.00. Where offered, each player may place optional bet to play against other players. The monetary amount for the optional bet shall be set forth by each individual gaming establishment;
(3) Any dealer tip delivered as a wager may be placed on the first bet. If a player chooses to place a second bet, a dealer tip may also be made at that time. The same applies to the river bet. Although a dealer tip is placed on the first bet, any subsequent tips bets for the dealer on that round of play is not required to complete the player's hand;
(4) Immediately before the start of play and after each round of play has been completed, the dealer must shuffle the cards. Following the shuffle and cut, the dealer deals three cards to each player and two cards to the dealer, either 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) or in a three-card group dispensed by a mechanical shuffling device. The first player to receive cards is the player to the left of the dealer; the dealer receives cards last. If a mechanical shuffling device which dispenses cards in three-card groups has been used, 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 maintains possession of the remainder of the deck;
(5) An incorrect number of cards dealt to a player is always a misdeal. An exposed card in a player's hand is not considered a misdeal. An exposed community card in front of the dealer constitutes a misdeal;
(6) Where offered, after a player has chosen to place the optional bet, dealer shall start from player to dealer's left and collect optional bet and replace the bet with a Twisted Pineapple marker to indicate that the player is eligible to play for that pot. All bets collected shall be placed in an area indicated on the table layout;
(7) After a player has looked at the player's three cards, the player must discard one of the three cards that they feel may not help their hand by placing the unwanted card under the ante bet;
(8) The dealer shall go to each player, from left to right, and collect all ante bets as well as all cards that are discarded and place the cards in the discard rack. 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;
(9) After the first community card, the player may place a second bet to continue with their hand, or fold, and forfeit all bets to the house. All wagers forfeited must be immediately collected by the dealer and the player's cards must be placed in the discard rack;
(10) After all players have chosen to continue with their hand by placing a second bet, the second of the dealer's cards is turned up for all players to see and use as a community card;
(11) After the second community card, the player may place a river bet to continue with their hand, or fold, and forfeit all bets to the house. All wagers forfeited must be immediately collected by the dealer, and the player's cards must be placed in the discard rack;
(12) Once all players have chosen to continue with their hand by placing a river bet, the dealer shall take a card from the top of the deck and place it in the discard rack as the burn card. Each player shall receive one card each, face downward. The first player to receive a card is the player to the left of the dealer. After all cards have been dealt, the dealer places the remaining cards into the discard rack without exposing the cards;
(13) All poker hands are now complete. Dealer must expose each hand individually, from left to right, and pay all qualifying hands according to the payment schedule; and
(14) Only hands that are bet against other players shall be left exposed and may not be collected and discarded. Although a hand may not qualify to be paid by the house, it may still be the highest hand to win the optional pot bets. Once the highest hand is determined of those betting the optional pot, the dealer may proceed to push the pot to the winner and discard all hands and start a new game.

The provisions of § 20:18:16:21 do not apply to Twisted Pineapple poker.
