Let It Ride is a casino variation of poker, played against the casino rather than against the other players. The game's relatively slow pace and the chance to pull back two of the three bets has made Let It Ride popular with older players and table game neophytes. At the same time, the game's slow pace has resulted in some casino dealers nicknaming the game "Let It Die". (A slow-paced game results in fewer tips for the dealer, hence the derogatory nickname.) "Let It Ride" was invented by Shuffle Master, who owns the copyright to both the name of the game and the logo. Let It Ride is a variation of five card stud where the player wagers on a poker hand consisting of three cards in the player's hand and two community cards in the dealer's hand. Like in video poker, the payout is determined by the ranking of the player's hand and the payout schedule.
