Poker has long been one of the most popular card games around, and Texas Hold’em is probably the most famous of the multiple variants of this game.
Casino Hold’em is an interesting twist on this game by NetEnt, and it makes for a fascinating game for experienced poker players as well as newcomers to this genre.
A poker table is the setting for this game, where you will be able to see your cards, as well as the cards that the dealer deals with every round. There are slots for you to place your bets, with the poker chips available at the lower right side of the screen, while the pay table is also visible on the left of the poker table to provide an instant reckoner of the wins that various winning hands can provide.
You can bet from $/€/£1 up to $/€/£100 per round.
You need to select your bet and place it on the ‘Ante’ circle to begin the round. This bet is now fixed for the round, but you can also place another bet on the ‘AA Bonus’ circle – this bet pays out if your hand, along with the first three cards drawn by the dealer, contain a Flush or better, or a Pair of Aces to Straight. Once you have placed your Ante bet, along with the optional AA Bonus bet, press ‘Deal’ to start the round. You will receive two cards while three will be placed on the table, after which you can choose to fold, which will forfeit your Ante bet, or Call, where you now wager 2x of your Ante bet.
If you call, the last two cards will be dealt and placed on the table, and now comes the time to compare your hand to the dealer’s. A tie will result in your ante bet being returned to you, a loss will forfeit it, while if your hand is better than the dealer’s you will receive a win based on your winning combination :
The payouts for winning the AA bet, which only uses the first three community cards plus your hand, are as follows :
This variation on the classic game of poker has a return to player (RTP) of 98.75%.
This game from NetEnt is an excellent change on the usual Texas Hold’em poker game. The AA bet really makes things interesting, but players should be careful at using this, since there are fewer cards to form winning hands. Overall, this is a very good and enjoyable card game, and you should have a lot of fun trying to outwit the dealer.
