Live Casino Hold’em at JackpotCity

Poker is the undisputed king of card games, more popular and intriguing even than Blackjack. With players always being able to rely on JackpotCity, it makes sense that they would look to us for high-calibre live versions of these games too. And we are happy to report that we don’t disappoint! You need look no further than our live games of Casino Hold’em for proof of that.

Nothing but the Best for Our Players

Like all of our live dealer casino games, the Poker titles are exclusively supplied by Evolution Gaming. This means they are superior in every way, with expert dealers that are specially trained to interact with you via video feed, wide betting ranges, sumptuous settings, great payouts and more. In short, they are everything you could want when playing at a casino online.

Add this superb technology to the bonuses, service, security and banking options that you have always been able to enjoy at JackpotCity, and the quality of the live experiences we deliver should become clear. We’re fully committed to being the greatest online casino in New Zealand, and feel that our live games prove once again that we are.

How to Play Live Casino Hold’em

These games are a clever twist on rounds of Texas Hold’em, which sees you going against the dealer rather than other players. This makes them perfect for the live online setting, and you can still interact with other enthusiasts via the live chat feature which keeps things sociable.

There are fewer rounds in Casino Hold’em than Texas Hold’em games, which makes them a little simpler. Use them as an introduction to more complicated games, and before playing with actual tablemates.

To start with, each player needs to make an Ante bet. You and the dealer each get 2 cards, and 3 community cards are also placed face-up on the table. At this point, you need to decide whether you want to Fold and forfeit your wager or carry on and place a Call bet.

If you Call your wager must be at least twice the Ante, and 2 more community cards will be dealt, making this all the more of an exciting online gambling experience. The dealer’s own 2 cards are also revealed. For the dealer’s hand to qualify and allow the round to continue, it must be made up of a Pair of 4s or higher.

Game Payouts and Results

If the dealer hand doesn’t qualify, the round is over. You are paid out different amounts on your Ante bet, according to what your own cards say, and your Call wager pushes. If the dealer’s hand does qualify, the game continues.

The best 5-card Poker hand that can be made by selecting cards from your hand and the community cards is determined, and then compared with the corresponding situation using the dealer’s cards. If your result is better you win and get an Ante bet return at the same rates as when the dealer hand doesn’t qualify. Your Call bet pays 1:1. When the hands tie, both your wagers push.

Side Bets for Extra Wins

Casino Hold’em always features an optional progressive jackpot wager, and because Evolution Gaming is ahead of its peers in every way, the rewards in their version are especially massive. The Jumbo 7 Jackpot is uncapped, and pays out if a 7-card Straight Flush is formed with your 2 cards and the 5 community cards.

If you place the same side wager and end up with a range of lower hands, you’ll be paid out a lesser, fixed amount. With the quick play, extra bets and potentially massive takings this game is as thrilling and almost as fast-paced as a spin on the pokies reels. Play and see if you agree!
