Casino Hold Em

Casino Hold’Em is a five-card Poker variant in which the players are dealt two hole cards that they must use along with the five-card flop to make the best possible poker hand. Be in with a chance at earning extra comp points as there is also an AA side bet which pays out should the first 5 cards dealt include a pair of aces or better.

  • Game Rules

    Casino Hold ‘Em is a variation of five-card poker. You are dealt two cards, and you must use them along with the five-card flop to make the best possible poker hand.

    The AA side bet is optional. Here, you bet on whether the first five cards dealt (your two cards plus the first three flop cards) will include a pair of Aces or better.

    The best possible hand is formed for you automatically.

    Casino Hold ’Em is played with a single 52-card deck. After each round, used cards are returned to the deck and the deck is shuffled.

    Hand ranking:

    At every stage of the game round, the best five-card hands available are formed automatically.

    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.

    If the dealer qualifies and the dealer's hand is better than your hand, you lose your Ante and Call bets.

    If the dealer qualifies and your hand is better than the dealer's hand, your Ante bet pays according to the paytable and your Call bet pays 1 to 1.

    If the dealer qualifies and you and the dealer have hands of the same type, the one that is composed of the highest-value card wins (i.e. Three Kings beats Three Queens; a flush of A, 6, 5, 4, 3 beats a flush of K, J, 10, 8, 7). If the hands are equal, then the highest unused card in the five-card hand determines the winner (i.e. a hand of 10, 10, A, 8, 8 beats a hand of 10, 10, K, 8, 8). If the five-card hands are identical, then it is a push and the Ante and Call bets are returned.

    The Ace is a semi-wildcard; it can be the highest-value card in a straight of A, K, Q, J, 10, or the lowest-value card in a straight of 5, 4, 3, 2, A.
