While it’s possible to make a profit playing Three Card Poker or Red Dog, it’s essential to remember that casino games are designed to favor the house. There are players who have had profitable sessions or even made significant winnings, but these instances are typically exceptions rather than the rule.

Three Card Poker has a higher house edge than games like blackjack or craps, ranging from about 2% to 7%, depending on the specific bets and paytables. However, its simple rules and fast gameplay make it appealing to many players. Some players have reported making profits in the short term, but long-term success in this game is challenging due to the house edge.

Red Dog is another game where short-term profits are possible, but the odds are still in the casino’s favor. The house edge in Red Dog varies depending on the number of decks used and can range from 2.5% to over 3%. While some players may experience winning streaks, consistent long-term profits are unlikely.

In both games, luck plays a significant role, and short-term results can vary widely. It’s important to approach these games as a form of entertainment and to gamble responsibly with money you can afford to lose.


  1. I used to hustle old people down at the nursing home. My best take for one day was 1200.

  2. Good Luck finding Red Dog anymore, the last casino I saw it at was in Reno 7 years ago. I never won at Red Dog (house’s advantage is around 3.155%).

    Three Card Poker is a fun game and I’ve made $200 – $300 the couple times I played. (house’s advantage is around (house’s advantage is around 2.3% to 7.3% based on pay tables).

    Odds and Strategy to Red Dog Poker and Three Card Poker can be found on the The Wizard of Odds (great site by the way)

    My advice, don’t bet the farm on these games (stick with Blackjack).

    Good luck in playing
