Rules of Play

Criss Cross Poker is a poker game played using a standard 52-card deck. To begin, each Player must place two ante bets of equal value, with one corresponding to the across hand, and one corresponding to the down hand. The Player may also place an optional 5 Card Bonus bet.

  1. Dealer then deals 5 community cards face down in such a way that they form a cross. Each Player is then dealt 2 cards face down. Players may examine their own cards.
  2. The Dealer offers each Player the option to either make an “Across” bet or forfeit their ante wagers. The “Across” bet must be 1 to 3 times the amount of their ante bet. After each Player has placed the “Across” bet the Dealer will turn over the 2 outside cards on the horizontal line of the cross.
  3. The Dealer offers each Player the option to either make the “Down” bet or forfeit all previous wagers. The “Down” bet must be 1 to 3 times the amount of their ante bet. After each Player has placed the “Down” bet the Dealer will turn over the two outside cards on the vertical line of the cross.
  4. The Dealer offers each Player the option to either make the “ Middle” bet or forfeit all previous wagers. The “Middle” bet must be 1 to 3 times the amount of their ante bet. After each Player has placed the “Middle” bet the Dealer will turn over the middle card on the cross.
  5. The Dealer then reveals the Player’s cards. The Player uses their 2 cards plus the 3 cards on the horizontal line of the cross to form an Across hand and uses their 2 cards plus the 3 cards on the vertical line of the cross to form a Down hand.
  6. Winning Across and Down hands are paid per the paytable. The Middle bet is paid if either the Across or Down bet qualify as a win and is paid at the odds of the highest ranking hand. If the Across bet is a push and the Down bet loses the Middle bet is also a push or if the Across bet loses and the Down bet is a push the Middle bet is also a push. If both the Across bet and Down bet push the Middle bet also is a push. The Middle bet only loses if both the Across and Down bets lose.
  7. The 2 ante bets are paid even money on qualifying hands for their respective hand. A qualifying hand is defined as any of the paying bets (pair of Jacks or Better). Pair of 6’s through 10’s result in a push and all other outcomes forfeit the ante bets.
