S.D. Admin. R. 20:18:16:15.23 - Variations of the play - Dakota Duel Draw

Dakota Duel Draw must be played according to the following rules:

(1) Dakota Duel Draw must be played on tables designated by the licensee for the play of Dakota Duel Draw. A single deck of cards must be used. The rank of hands in Dakota Duel Draw, from highest to lowest, is royal flush, straight flush, four of a kind, full house, flush, straight, three of a kind, two pair, pair, and high card;
(2) Each player shall make at least one initial bet in the amount specified at the table by the retail licensee and shall place the bet in either the big 8 wagering area or the hand 2 ante wagering area, or both. A player places the big 8 wager to play for hand value only; a player places the hand 2 ante bet to play a hand ranking payout; and a player places the hand 1 play bet to play for hand ranking payout. A player places all bets if the player wants to play all ways;
(3) Any dealer tip delivered as a wager may be placed on any one, or all, of the big 8, hand 2 ante, or hand 1 play, if the player has placed a personal wager on the same hand. If a player continues to play with a hand 1 play wager, the dealer's tip hand 2 ante may remain in play whether or not the player adds a hand 1 play wager for the dealer;
(4) Immediately before play begins and after each round of play has been completed, the dealer shall shuffle the cards. Following shuffle and cut, the dealer shall deal one card to hand 2 community card and one card to hand 1 community card and one to each player, then a second card to hand 2 community card and hand 1 community card and one to each player, then a third card hand 2 community card and a third hand 1 community card, all cards are dealt face downward and one at a time in rotation among the community cards and the players cards;
(5) An incorrect number of cards dealt to a player or to the community cards is always a misdeal. An exposed card is not a misdeal. If the dealer exposes a card, the dealer turns the card over and continues dealing;
(6) Wagers are collected or paid in this order: pocket pair bonus, hand 1 play, hand 2 ante, and the big 8, if applicable;
(7) Once a player looks at the player's two face down cards, the player has the option to fold and forfeit the hand 2 ante bet or place a bet equal to the hand 2 ante on the hand 1 play. If the player has made a big 8 wager and forfeits the hand 2 ante, the player will place the cards face down in accordance with house policy. If the player places a hand 1 play bet, the player places the cards in accordance with house policy. Once a player makes a hand 1 play bet, the player is locked into the hand and must wait to see if the player hands rank high enough for a payout;
(8) If a player already has at least a straight or better, the player shall be paid on the big 8 wager. There is no action required for the big 8 wager. The big 8 wager is the best 5 cards out of the player's two cards and the six community cards on the board. After each player who wishes to fold has folded, the dealer collects the hand 2 ante. As the dealer collects the folded cards, the cards are spread face down to count the cards and then placed in the discard rack; if the player folds his hand 2 ante and has a big 8 bet, the cards will be tucked under the big 8 wager, or according to house policy;
(9) After each player has decided to play or fold, the dealer shall expose the six community cards in two sets of three cards, and call out and show the best possible five-card hand that the players have for the hand 1 play, the hand 2 ante, and the big 8. Once the dealer has determined the players hand ranking for each wager remaining, the dealer will pay or take the bet or bets according to hand ranking for each wager. If the two cards dealt to the player are a pair, the player will receive a bonus according to the pocket pair bonus. This bonus will be paid only if the player plays the hand 1 play. The pocket pair bonus is paid according to the amount played on hand 1. The pocket pair bonus is paid regardless of whether the player loses any of the other wagers;
