3-Card Poker Progressive$493,809.00


Blackjack is one of the most popular games at Talking Stick Resort™. Our tables are located in the Arena Poker Room™ and along the grand walkway on the casino floor within easy access of great drinks at Palo Verde Lounge and amazing seafood at Ocean Trail.

How to Play Blackjack
The object of Blackjack is to beat the dealer with a hand that gets as close as possible to 21 without going over. From more than one traditional 52-card deck, players are dealt one card facing up and one facing down. Cards 2 through 10 are worth face value, but face cards are all worth 10. The ace can either be counted as 1 or 11.

Once the cards are dealt, a player can choose to 'hit' or 'stand.' If the player chooses to hit, they will receive another card in the hopes of getting closer to 21 without going over. If the player stands, they choose to stick with the cards they have, hoping they are closer than the dealer to 21 and haven't gone over. If a player goes over 21, their hand is a 'bust' and they lose the bet. Additionally, if the dealer's cards total 21 or are a higher value than the player's, the dealer wins.

To make play more exciting, there are a few options with certain dealt card patterns. If a player 'doubles down' they double their bet on the hand and can only receive one additional card. If two cards dealt are an equal value, they can 'split' their hand and play the two separate hands in the same manner as they would with one game. Play is complete when a player hits 21 ('Blackjack') or busts.

Pai Gow Poker*

Pai Gow is a relaxing, strategic poker game. It’s a great way to sit back and enjoy the company of fellow players and the dealer. Plus, Talking Stick Resort is the perfect place to play it with a beautiful gaming hall and great restaurants just steps away.

How to Play Pai Gow Poker
Pai Gow Poker is a seven-card game between the player and the dealer. The dealer gives each player seven cards and from those seven cards, the player then creates two hands to play. One of the two hands will have five cards and the other, only two. The five-card hand must be a higher value than the two-card hand. The dealer also creates a pair of five- and two-card hands, but has to follow a set house strategy.

Once the players' and dealers' hands are decided and locked-down, the cards are laid out and compared. For the player to win, he or she must win both hands. Consequently, to lose, he or she must lose both hands. If the player wins one hand and the dealer wins the other, the game is a draw. Due to those rules, players are able to play many hands because it's very common to get a draw.

3-Card Poker®*

This simple poker game is popular for its easy game pace and the camaraderie you build with other players while trying to beat the dealer. It’s easy to love playing because there are only three cards to manage and the bets are consistent. Our 3-Card Poker tables are on the gaming floor near Palo Verde Lounge and Ocean Trail.

How to Play 3-Card Poker
To begin, players place their ante bet. They can also try their luck by placing the 'pair plus' bet.

After receiving three cards, the player will then decide whether or not to proceed and play the hand. If so, the player will place a bet for the same amount he or she placed for the ante and 'pair plus' bets (if played). Before play continues, the dealer will need to qualify the dealer’s hand. In order to qualify for play, the dealer must have at least a Queen high among the three cards. If the dealer qualifies, the cards are shown and payouts are calculated.

Simply put, if the player has a higher poker hand than the dealer, the player wins both the ante and the play bets. If the player also bet on the 'pair plus' and has a pair, he or she will also win that. If not, that bet is lost.


High Card Flush

High Card Flush is an entertaining casino game that involves playing your flush hands against the dealer’s flush hands. The game also offers fun side bets that pay off for hands with straight flushes and for the number of cards in your flush!

How to Play High Card Flush
Each player plays against the dealer’s hand, with the goal to have the hand with the most cards of the same suit (a flush). Players will make a mandatory Ante wager and optional bonus wagers if they desire. Each player and the dealer will receive seven cards. Upon inspecting their cards, the players can fold and surrender the Ante, or they can elect to call the dealer. The call wager is equal to the Ante wager for hands that contain flushes of 4-cards or less. If the player has a 5-card flush the call wager is 2 times the Ante. With a 6 or 7-card flush, the call wager is 3 times the Ante.

The dealer will reveal their hand and must qualify with a 3-card flush that contains a 9 at minimum. If the dealer does not qualify, Ante wagers and applicable bonus wagers will be paid. If the dealer does qualify, the dealer will compare their cards with those of the players to determine the winner.

Hands that contain more flush cards than the dealer automatically win. For example, a player’s 4-card flush will beat a dealer’s 3-card flush. If the player and dealer both have the same number of cards, the next ranking criteria is standard poker ranking. A player three card flush of K-Q-J will beat a dealer Q-J-10.

Players can win up to 1000 times their bonus wager when playing the straight flush bonus. The standard flush bonus wager can pay up to 250 times the wager. Several exciting ways to win makes High Card Flush a popular and easy game to learn and play!

Casino War™*

Talking Stick Poker Room Promotions

The war is on at Talking Stick Resort. Casino War is a fast, exciting game that gives you a great rush watching the non-stop back-and-forth between the player and the dealer.

How to Play Casino War
Casino War is a simple yet fast-paced single high-card bet. To play, the bet is placed, then a card is dealt for the player and another for the dealer. Whichever card is of the highest value wins.

In the event of a tie, the player has a choice to 'surrender' or 'go to war.' If the player surrenders, he or she loses half of the bet. If the player and the dealer go to war, the player places an equal bet, and additional cards are dealt for the player and the dealer. Whoever wins the second round wins the whole hand. If the second round is a tie, the player wins. Each game can last mere seconds.
