A method for playing a card game having wagering opportunities. Wagering selections are made from among a group of possible playing card outcomes, with the winning outcome selected using a specialized die. After all bets have been placed, a single playing card is dealt face down at each of certain pre-identified locations. Indicia on each of the faces of the die collectively correspond to each of the pre-identified locations. The indicia observed on the up-turned face of the die after its throwing or tumbling determines the location at which the playing card is turned over. The turned-over card is considered to be the "winning" playing card, and its value is used to settle all bets prior to initiation of a new game.
