Place bets of up to NZ$1000 and take on the dealer to show off your poker skills with a touch of luck.

Casino Hold’em Game Rules

When you’re ready to play live dealer casino games, Casino Hold’em is a good place to start. It is a variation of the well-known Texas Hold’em Poker game. Here are the basic rules that you should understand before you play.

The game is played with a single 52-card deck and can accommodate an unlimited number of players.

The game sequence takes place as follows:

  1. One hand is dealt to the players (face up)
  2. One is dealt to the dealer (face down)
  3. Community cards are dealt on the table
  4. Winning hands are created using the deck as it’s dealt

If you want to play along, you must place an Ante bet. Once the game round begins, the first cards are dealt. After the first 3 community cards, you can choose to Play or Fold. If you choose to continue, the Play/Call option will cost double the Ante bet. Be sure to confirm in time, or your hand will automatically fold.

In order to qualify for the Play bet, the dealer must have a pair of 4s or higher. If not, they fold.

Standard poker hands are used, from strongest to weakest being:

  • Royal Flush
  • Straight Flush
  • Four of a Kind
  • Full House
  • Flush
  • Straight
  • Three of a Kind
  • Two pairs
  • Pair
  • High Card
