 (b)  Only players who are seated at the Mississippi Stud table may place a wager at the game. Once a player has placed a wager and received cards, that player shall remain seated until the completion of the round of play. If a player leaves the table during a round of play, any wagers made by the player may be considered abandoned and may be treated as losing wagers.

 (c)  All Ante, Progressive Payout, Three Card Bonus, Five Card Hand Bonus and Six Card Bonus Wagers shall be placed prior to the dealer announcing ‘‘no more bets’’ in accordance with the dealing procedure in §  655a.8, §  655a.9 or §  655a.10 (relating to procedure for dealing the cards from a manual dealing shoe; procedure for dealing the cards from the hand; and procedures for dealing the cards from an automated dealing shoe). Except as provided in §  655a.11(b), (d) and (f) (relating to procedures for completion of each round of play), a wager may not be made, increased or withdrawn after the dealer announces ‘‘no more bets’’ and begins dealing the cards.

 (d)  The following wagers may be placed in the game of Mississippi Stud:

   (1)  A player shall place an Ante Wager to participate in a round of play.

   (2)  In accordance with §  655a.11(b), (d) and (f), 3rd Street, 4th Street and 5th Street Wagers.

   (3)  A certificate holder may, if specified in its Rules Submission under §  601a.2 (relating to table games Rules Submissions), offer to each player at a Mississippi Stud table the option to make an additional Progressive Payout Wager that the player will receive a Progressive Payout Hand. After placing an Ante Wager, a player may make an additional Progressive Payout Wager by placing a value chip into the progressive wagering device designated for that player. Each player shall be responsible for verifying that the player’s respective Progressive Payout Wager has been accepted.

   (4)  A certificate holder may, if specified in its Rules Submission under §  601a.2, offer to each player at a Mississippi Stud table the option to make an additional Three Card Bonus Wager that the three community cards will form a three-card Poker hand of a pair or better as defined in §  655a.6(c) (relating to Mississippi Stud hand rankings).

After placing an Ante Wager, a player may make the additional Five Card Hand Bonus Wager by using the electronic wagering device designated for that player. Each player shall be responsible for verifying that the player’s Five Card Hand Bonus Wager has been accepted.

   (6)  If specified in its Rules Submission under §  601a.2, a certificate holder may offer to each player who placed an Ante Wager the option of placing a Six Card Bonus Wager which shall win if the player’s two cards and the four additional Six Card Bonus cards form a three-of-a-kind or better as described in §  655a.6(d). A Six Card Bonus Wager does not have bearing on any other wagers made by the player.
