Red Dog is a variation of acey-deucey or in-between. The game is falling in popularity in the land casinos but many Internet casinos offer the game. I have heard from two sources that the game can be found at the Turning Stone Casino and Resort in Verona, New York. I also have an unconfirmed report that Foxwoods has the game, titling it "Acey Deucey."
If the two cards are neither consecutive nor equal the dealer announces the spread, or the number of card values in between the cards. For example a 5 and 10 would have a spread of 4. The player is then given a chance to increase the wager up to the amount of the original wager. Then a third card is dealt, if it is in between the first two cards the player wins according to the following payout table, if it matches or is outside the first two cards the player loses.
- 1 card spread: Pays 5:1
- 2 card spread: Pays 4:1
- 3 card spread: Pays 2:1
- 4+ card spread: Pays 1:1
