live dealer 3 card brag

Playtech has finally launched the Live Dealer 3 Card Brag game we saw glimpses of at ICE 2017.

If you’re gagging to get playing then you’ll find it at Betfair, Bet365Paddy Power & Sky Casino

It’s been a while coming and I’m pleased we now have an alternative to Live 3 Card Poker from Evolution.  

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not because I don’t like 3 card poker. I actually love it.

It’s because I believe there should always be choices. Playtech Live 3 Card Brag delivers that.

Why 3 Card Brag and not 3 Card Poker?

It’s simple really. Licensing. The rights of 3 card poker are owned by Scientific Games and Evolution Gaming has the exclusive rights to the live version of the game.

3 Card Brag is a game that dates back to the 16th Century so it has plenty of history. It’s known very well in the UK. I remember playing it when I was a child.

What’s the difference?

Live Dealer 3 Card Brag is played in a very similar way to Live 3 Card Poker. You have to get a better 3 card hand than the dealer.

The only difference is the ranking of the hands.

The highest hand possible in 3 card brag is a Prial (three of a kind). A Prial of 3’s is the best hand you can get, although there is no ranking of these hands in the Live version.

How do you play Live Dealer 3 Card Brag?

The game is presented in a one to many format and is played with one pack of 52 Playing Cards.

There’s one player hand that an unlimited number of people can bet on. 

You’ll always be able to play, there are no seating issues like you get in Blackjack.

Where you can Play

As it’s new, places to play the new game are difficult to find.

I’ve been playing at Paddy Power, but you’ll also find the game at Sky Casino and Betfair.

About Neil’s Casino Comparer Reviews

I have tried to be objective and consistent with all my live casino reviews. Hopefully they will strike a chord with you, but I thought it might be helpful to explain the criteria i used to mark each of the casinos. Hopefully, the categories and explanations make logical sense.

Playability – What is the overall impression of the casino. Did I have a good time?, are the dealers nice and chatty?, is everything easy to understand?. Does it have a good set of games, is there a comprehensive set of betting options? Are high stakes players taken care of?

Software – What is the software like to use, does it integrate well with the rest of the casino?. Are the images clear and the video streaming fast.? Have they taken more than the default shared tables? Is it available on mobile?

Payment Options – Does the casino have a good variety of payment options?. Do they payout quickly & on time.?

Security – How good is the reputation of the casino amongst other players? Do they hold a valid gaming license? Are they transparent about the security measures they have in place. Are they regularly audited. Do they publish this information?

Support – Do they have multiple methods for communication with me? Is support available 24×7? Do they have instant chat?, are they quick to respond?. Are they able to help me immediately?. Do they have an online FAQ and self help library? Are the support people knowledgeable about the product i’m playing?

Bonuses – Do they have bonuses?. How strict are the wagering requirements? Do they offer repeat bonuses?. Do they offer loyalty points and can they be redeemed for cash or playing credits.

After all that would I play there regularly?
