Live Dragon Tiger Rules

Dragon Tiger is extremely simple to play. Two cards are dealt: one to the Dragon betting position on the table, and one to the Tiger betting position. The betting position that gets the higher card wins.

As the player, you place your bets on the Dragon, the Tiger or the Tie. You will find the Side Bets in the section below.

Aces are the lowest ranking cards, with the rest of the cards following their natural values – two the next lowest, with king the highest card.

The highest card wins in Live Dragon Tiger, regardless of the suit.

In the case of a tie – both the Dragon position and Tiger position being dealt a card of the same value – players lose 50% of their bet on either Dragon or Tiger.

Winnings are paid for the winning bets at the end of each game round.

Side Bets

You can place a number of side bets for each game round. They are as follows:

  • Dragon Big and Tiger Big bets win if an eight or higher is dealt to the corresponding main position. They lose in cases of seven or lower.
  • Dragon Small and Tiger Small bets win if a six or lower is dealt to the corresponding main position and lose in cases of a seven or higher.
  • Winning cards for the Dragon Odd and Tiger Odd betting positions are: A, 3, 5, 9, J, K.
  • Winning cards for the Dragon Even and Tiger Even betting positions are: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, Q.
  • 7 is not included in the Dragon/Tiger Odd/Even bets, and in cases of a 7 all Odd/Even bets lose.
  • 7 is not included in the Dragon/Tiger Big/Small bets, and in cases of a 7 all Big/Small bets lose

Side bets are not associated with the main game bets. You can bet on the Dragon main bet position and a Tiger Odd side bet, and vice versa, for example.
