No Flop Pineapple Hold’em features head-to-head play against the dealer and an optional bonus bet.
Both the player and the dealer combine two hole cards with two community cards to make their best four-card poker hand. To compete against the dealer, players make an Ante bet. To compete against the bonus paytable, players make a Pocket Pairs bet. This bet wins if the player receives – and keeps – a Pair in their first three cards.
The dealer will give each player three cards, one of which must be discarded. Players will then see the first of two community cards, called the “Turn.” At this point players must fold or stay in the game by making a Play bet of 2x their Ante. Next, the dealer will reveal the second and final community card, called the “River.”
The dealer then reveals his three cards and discards one. The dealer always qualifies. If the player’s hand beats the dealer’s, his Ante and Play bets pay 1 to 1. If the player’s hand loses to the dealer’s hand, his Ante and Play bets lose. If the player and the dealer tie, the player’s Ante and Play bets push. And, win or lose, if the player’s hand is a Flush or higher, they will receive bonus payouts on their Ante.
Regardless of the dealer’s hand, if the player’s cards are a Pair, the Pocket Pairs bet wins. If the community cards turn that Pair into Three-of-a-Kind, the payouts double. And, if the community cards turn that Pair into Four-of-a-Kind, the payouts multiply by 20.
