Let ‘Em Ride or Let Them Ride is a casino game that is mostly found at online casinos. It’s almost identical to Let It Ride but there are a couple minor differences.
In most cases, these two terms are used interchangeably. If you know how to play one game, you will know how to play both games.
The reason there are two games with similar names is because the original “Let It Ride” is trademarked by Shuffle Master. Being the clever devils they are, online casinos decided to make a similar game and add a slight twist to the name. And that is how we ended up with the ever popular Let Em Ride.
Basics of Let Em Ride
Let ‘Em Ride is an easy game to learn and surprisingly fun. If you ever get a chance to play this game, I recommend you do so. The ability to add bets as you go gives you more of a sense of control than most casino games. If you start out with a bad hand, you don’t have to put any more money in the middle. If you get a great hand right off the bat, you can add up to two additional bets.
If you would like to try Let ‘Em Ride, you can do so at most casinos on the internet. You don’t even have to risk real money in doing so. Many casinos have a free play option that lets you play the game with simulated chips rather than real money. This gives you a chance to see what the game is all about without actually making a deposit.
The progressive jackpot also makes Let ‘Em Ride especially attractive. If you place a bet on the progressive jackpot and hit a Royal Flush, you’ll get a massive payday. At the time of this writing, I saw one progressive jackpot sitting at about $200,000. The house advantage on the progressive jackpot is quite high, but the bet is so small that most players don’t mind placing it.
Let ‘Em Ride is a high variance game and it’s easy to get caught up in the moment. Hands are played out quickly and it’s easy to go on a big rush and win a bunch of money very quickly. It’s also easy to miss out on a few hands and lose your money just as quickly. The low house advantage makes it possible to play this game for a long time on a limited bankroll.
