Casino Hold’em is an easy casino online game to learn and it’s essentially a 5-card poker game where the aim is to beat the dealer by creating the highest scoring 5-card hand. During the game, you also have the chance to Fold or place a Call Bet.
Placing the Ante Bet
The rules of the live online casino game are loosely based on Texas Hold’em Poker with community cards and the dealing of the flop, the turn and the river. To get started, the first step is placing the ante bet. This can be done by clicking/taping on the virtual chips and placing them on the highlighted betting area. Once the betting has closed, the dealer will deal you two cards face up and himself/herself two cards face down. The game differs from Texas Hold’em Poker in that you only get one opportunity to call or fold.
To Call or to Fold
Once the dealer has dealt the player and dealer cards he or she will deal the Flop, which is the first 3 of the 5 community cards. The aim here is to calculate the value of your hand and predict whether it will be a winning hand with the addition of 2 more community cards.
If you feel you have a losing hand, you can fold and forfeit your ante bet. If you feel you have a strong hand or you might have a strong hand with 2 additional cards, you can place a call bet.
Winning a Hand with JackpotCity
The call bet is always double the amount of the ante bet. Once the Call betting round is over, the dealer will deal a fourth community card (the turn) and a fifth community card (the river). It is at this point you can see what type of hand you have achieved using 5 out of the 7 dealt cards. With this casino online game, the better your hand, the greater your chances of winning.
Once all the community cards have been dealt, the dealer will flip over his or her down-facing cards. The dealer must qualify with a pair of fours or better. The two hands are then compared and the highest hand wins. If your hand is a winner, you will be paid out accordingly. If the dealer does not qualify the ante bet is paid out according to the paytable and the call be returned as is.
