AbstractA method of playing a wagering game, such as a casino table game or video game, including a playing card wagering game method involves each player placing a multiple part bet, such as a two, a three or a four-part bet. At least one game symbol is designated as wild. A certain position in the order of play is reached (such as with cards being dealt by the dealer, two face down to the dealer and three face down to each player), and the player is given an opportunity to withdraw at least one part of the multiple part bet from risk, although at least one part of the multiple part bet must remain at risk during the play of the game. Players evaluate their position in the game and the dealer or the program for the game gives each player the choice of withdrawing or leaving a first part of the bet. The game is then completed. For example in a card game, the player's cards are shown, and all remaining bets, which were not withdrawn, are resolved according to a pay table.
