Casino Hold 'Em is a new form of Texas Hold 'Em Poker. This variation of five-card poker is both easy to learn and an absolute thrill to play!
In Casino Hold 'Em you are playing against the Dealer rather than other players, which eliminates any concern over another player’s moves and bluffing. This is the primary difference between regular Texas Hold 'Em games, where reading other players plays a central role. Because you are only playing against the Dealer, your decision-making in Casino Hold 'Em is more simplistic and straight-forward.
Getting Started Playing Casino Hold'Em
To start off, place a wager on the ANTE area and click the DEAL button. Two "Hole" cards are then dealt to each player, and three community cards (known as the ‘Flop’) are dealt face up in the middle. At this point, you may choose to either FOLD or CALL. Folding, of course, means forfeiting the ante. A call bet is always two times the size of the ante wager and allows you to continue with the hand.
Two more community cards are then dealt into the middle of the Casino Hold'Em table, followed by the Dealer revealing their hole cards. Both you and the Dealer will attempt to build their best five-card poker hand from the two hole cards and five community cards. Your objective is to wind up with a better poker hand than the Dealer.
The Dealer qualifies with a 5-card poker hand that's equal to a pair of 4s or better.
An AA side bet is optional. With this bet you are wagering that the first five cards dealt (your two cards plus the first three flop cards) will include a pair of Aces or better.
Let the Casino Hold'Em Fun Begin
To place your bet(s), Click on the desired chip denomination. Then click the AA and Ante circles on the table to load your bets. Every click increases your bet by that particular chip's value, and every right-click decreases the bet. You can also click Clear Bets to remove all bets from the Casino Hold 'Em table and start over.
Click the button marked Deal. You are dealt two cards which you must use along with the "flop" cards to make the best possible poker hand.
Firstly, both you and the Dealer will be given two cards (the Dealer's are face down), and three cards will be dealt to the flop.
If you have a pair of Aces or better, you win the AA side bet.
Next, you can Call and continue facing off against the Dealer, or Fold and lose your bets. If you call, you will have to place double your original Ante bet in the Call circle.
You must call to collect your AA side bet winnings. If you don't, you will lose your AA bet even if you have a valid hand.
The last two flop cards are then dealt, the Dealer turns their cards face up, and the best possible Casino Hold 'Em hands, yours and the Dealer’s, are formed automatically.
If your hand is better than the Dealer's, you win and your Ante and Call bets are returned to you along with your winnings. If not, you lose your bets.
If you want to play another round, press New Game. Then, place your bets as explained above and click the Deal button. By clicking Rebet, you automatically place the same bets as in the previous hand.
Casino Hold'Em Hand Rankings
In Casino Hold'Em ,at every stage of the game, the best possible hands are formed automatically for you. The hand rankings and rules in Casino Hold 'Em are virtually the same as Texas Hold 'Em played in poker rooms and casinos, both online and off.
The Dealer has to have at least a pair of 4s to qualify. If not, your Call bet is returned and the Ante bet pays according to the paytable.
Whenever the Dealer qualifies and you win, your Ante bet pays according to the paytable and your Call bet pays even money.
If you and the Dealer have equal Casino Hold 'Em hands, the highest card determines the winner.
In Casino Hold 'Em, an Ace is a semi-wildcard, meaning it can be the highest-value card in a straight of Aces, Kings, Queens, Jacks, 10, or the lowest-value card in a straight of 5, 4, 3, 2, Aces.
