How to Play

Big Pineapple Betting Circle


Big Pineapple brings the tropics to the poker table with this Hold’Em poker variant. The object of the game is to make the best five-card poker hand using only two of their initial three-cards and the five community cards. Big Pineapple uses a standard 52-card deck and features head-to-head play against the dealer.

How to Play

To begin the game, the player must make their initial, mandatory wagers on both the Ante and Blind betting circles. At the same time, the player has a choice to make an optional Straight or Pineapple Bonus side bet. The bonus wagers cannot be played alone. The dealer will deal three cards face down to each player. Players will review their three-card hand and decide whether to check or bet. If the player checks, they will go on to the next round with their three-card hand. If the player decides to bet on their hand, they must discard a card. The player will choose one card, from their initial three-card hand, to place in the discard box. They will no longer be able to use their selected discard going forward. The player will place the other two cards face down on the Pineapple betting circle with their 4x bet on top of them. Once the bet has been made, the player will have no more decisions to make and will await an outcome.


Players have three rounds to decide whether to check or bet. The first round is when players receive their three-card hands. The second round, the Flop is revealed, and these community cards can be used by everyone. Players can check or wager 2x their Ante. At this point, players must discard a card no matter what. The third round, the Turn and River cards are revealed. If betting, players can wager 1x their Ante. Any player who has not yet raised, must do so now or be forced to fold, forfeiting their cards, and losing both their Ante and Blind wagers.

How to Win

Big Pineapple Felt

The players and dealer are trying to make their best 5-card poker hand based on their two-hole cards and five community cards on the board. The person with the highest poker ranking wins. The dealer will turn over their cards first and any cards not used will be turned sideways. The dealer will turn over the player’s cards and determine who has the better poker ranking. If the player wins, the wagers will be paid according to the posted paytable. If the dealer wins, the Ante, Blind and Pineapple bet lose. In case of a tie, the Ante, Blind and Pineapple bet will push.
