Fans of table Poker games are sure to enjoy this video release where the player’s hand is pitted against the dealers. Players can bet on both the main game and the bonus feature in Casino Stud Poker with stakes as high as $/€/£100 per game.
The risk is brought into play when it comes to increasing the bet after cards are dealt, the question is will your hand beat the dealers?
Gameplay takes place on a classic casino table in Casino Stud Poker with a traditional green velvet top on which the bets and cards are placed. Stakes can be placed on the table in the form of different coloured casino chips with the value printed clearly. The cards dealt in each game will shuffle in order of value, making any winning hands clear to the player before they change their bets and reveal the dealer’s hand. The look and feel of play is authentic with visual aspects, including a card shoe, bin and a wooden table border visible as cards are dealt and bets placed.
The only symbols players will see in Casino Stud Poker are that of the 4 card suits included and the high-value card symbols. The card suits used in the deck of play are Hearts, Diamonds, Clubs and Spades with their appropriate colours (red and black) helping each card and its suit to stand out. The higher value J-K cards also include imagery of the Jack, Queen or King that helps players to recognise its value; the Ace card uses a single symbol of whichever suit the specific card is. Although the game mechanics automatically sort dealt cards by their value the symbols used help players recognise the hand they have been dealt.
The hands that players can be dealt to beat the dealer increasing in order of value are:
The gameplay of Casino Stud Poker begins with players staking the Ante bet and choosing whether or not to bet on the bonus. The bonus bet provides jackpot prizes on higher value hands like a Flush, Full House, etc. The price of a jackpot bet is capped at $/€/£1. Once the starting bets are placed, the cards are dealt and the player can see all 5 of their cards and 1 of the dealers. From here, they can weigh up if they think their hand will win and choose to play the hand; this will cost players double the original bet. The dealer will only play with a Pair or higher, so anything less will return the bet stake and pay back double the Ante placed.
This competitive Poker game release is a great starting point for newcomers hoping to play live tables in the future. Here players have the time to learn the rules, hands and bets that are placed in Poker with the potential of some great payouts available at the same time.
