Gameplay and Rules
Casino Hold'em game flow
Max and min limits apply to ANTE bet and AA bet.
Select a chip of desired value and place it on the ANTE bet area. Place a bet on the AA bet area if you want to play the AA side game. Click deal.
You and the dealer are dealt 2 hole cards (dealer's cards are face down). 3 community cards (also called "flop") are dealt on the middle of the table.
If the 2 hole cards and the first 3 community cards make up a poker hand of Pair of Aces or higher, you win the AA bet.
At this point you can decide to either FOLD or CALL. If you click fold, you forfeit your hand and all your bets. If you click call, a CALL bet – equalling two times the ANTE bet – is placed and 2 additional community cards (also called "turn" and "river") are dealt, bringing the total of community cards to 5.
Dealer's cards turn face up and both hands are scored automatically according to highest 5-card poker hand that can be constructed out of 2 hole cards and 5 community cards.
The dealer must have a pair of 4s or better to qualify.
If the dealer does not qualify, you win the ANTE bet according to the ANTE paytable, and push the CALL bet.
If the dealer qualifies and has a better hand, you lose both ANTE and CALL bets.
If the dealer qualifies and you have a better hand, you win the ANTE bet according to the ANTE paytable, and the CALL bet, which pays 1:1.
If the dealer qualifies and you both have equal hands, both ANTE and CALL bets push.
