Much like Red Dog, the goal is for one card to fall between two others in rank. In this case, the primary goal is the dealer's up card to fall between the player's initial two cards. As of 2019, this side bet is becoming popular, with several placements I'm aware of.
The name of this bet is rather unclear. Judging by the table felt, it would seem to be titled just "In." However, the AGS web site, the company that markets the game, refers to it as the "In BETween." So, I'm going to go with that.
The side bet is based on standard blackjack rules. The primary object is for the dealer's up card to fall between the player's two initial cards in rank. For tight spreads of three ranks or less, the pays get larger. There is also a premium win for a three of a kind. The full pay table is below. All wins are on a "to win" basis.
