What better game for us to host, than a poker orientated casino game? For those that aren’t familiar with the game, each player including the dealer receives two hole cards, there are also five community cards – just like in normal Texas Hold’em.
Players have to place a minimum of £3 wager on both the ‘Ante’ and the ‘Blind’, with the option to place more on a separate ‘Trips’ bet. Once players receive their cards, they have the option to ‘Check’, or ‘Raise’ by betting equal to three or four times the amount placed on the Ante.
The Flop (or first three community cards) are then revealed. If a player had previously checked before the flop, they will now have the option to bet equal to two times his/her Ante. If a player had previously Bet/Raised before the flop, no further betting is to take place.
The turn and river (or final two community cards), are then revealed. If a bet has been made by a player preflop, or on the flop then on further bets can be made, however if a player has since checked twice, a bet can be made equal to his/her Ante.
Both the dealer and player will then make the best possible poker hand using any combination of their own two cards and the five community cards, just like in normal Texas Hold’em. The dealer must qualify with a minimum of one pair for the Ante bet to be in play. If the dealer does not qualify the bet will be ‘pushed’ (returned) and all other bets will stand regardless whether the dealer qualifies or not. The highest payout on your ‘Blinds’ is 500:1 with a royal flush!
