31 Classic is a three card style casino card game with a single draw card option. The objective of the game is to combine up to 3 suited cards to get a point value of 17 or higher. Blackjack scoring is used, where the faces are equal to 10 points and aces are eleven (Click for Hand Examples). The game is played with up to seven players playing the odds versus a pay table (not vs. a dealer).
The way the game is played goes as follows:
1.) Place an Ante wager and optional Natural 31 Bonus wager
2.) Get three cards face down
3.) Decide to Play (match Ante Wager) or Fold
4.) If you play, you will receive one new card from the dealer. Folding hands get no new card and forfeit their wagers.
5.) After all final hands are viewed the hand is over. The dealer will then distribute the chips accordingly.
The ante wager must be placed at the beginning of each hand to receive the initial three cards. This wager must be between the table minimum and the table maximum at the time of the hand. The ante wager pushes or receives a 1 to 1 payout on any winning hand according to the play wager pay table.

The play wager must be placed when the player decides he/she would like to play the hand and receive one new card from the dealer. This Wager must always be equal to the ante wager. The play wager receives a payout according to the Play wager pay table when the hands qualify.
