- Three Pictures is played with a single deck of cards. All picture cards (King, Queen and Jack) and Tens carry the value of 0, while other cards carry their denoted numerical value (Ace carries the value of 1).
- Each player plays with 3 cards. The expressions “Three Knights”, “Double Knights Seven”, “Plain Nine”, etc each have meanings assigned according to the ranking list.
- The highest ranking hand is known as “Three Knights”, that is a hand with 3 picture cards. The point count for the other hands will be counted at the face value of the 3 cards with the highest score being 9. For total scores exceeding 10 or 20, 10 and 20 points will be deducted respectively.
- The objective of the game is to have the highest hand over the lower hand.
- In the event that the point count is the same, it will be considered a tie.

- Players also have the option of wagering on tie bets (Payment 8 to 1) and “Three Knights” bet (Payment 16 to 1).

- All winning bets will be paid even money with one exception: when the player wins on the point count of 6, which will be paid 50% of the amount betted. (For example, for RM100 winning, the player’s bet paid is RM50.)
