    Casino Hold'em - How to Play

    The bet amounts available on Casino Hold'em range from 10c to $100.

    You don't compete with other players on Casino Hold'em - just the dealer.

    To win, you must have a stronger five-card hand than the dealer. 

    This five-card hand is made up of your first two cards and the three community cards.


    Starting the Game

    Start the game by placing a standard ante bet.

    Once the timer runs out, you and the dealer receive two cards each.

    The dealer's cards will be dealt face down.

    Following this, the three community cards are dealt, facing up, and you and the dealer must both decide whether to call or fold.

    If you choose to call, you will double your ante bet.

    If you choose to fold, you will forfeit your hand and lose your bet.


    AA-Bonus Bet

    The AA-Bonus Bet can be placed following the ante bet - the maximum bet amount for this is $50.

    While both the ante bet and AA-Bonus Bet can stand on their own, an ante bet is needed before you can play an AA-Bonus Bet.

    The poker value of your first two cards and the three community cards will determine the result of your AA-Bonus bet.

    Bets on this bonus are paid out in line with what's shown in the paytable.


    Game Outcomes

    To qualify, the dealer needs at the very least a pair of 4s.

    If the dealer fails to qualify, you automatically win.

    If you win, your ante bet is paid out in line with the paytable and your call bet will be returned.

    If the dealer does qualify, one of the three outcomes listed below can happen:

    • If the dealer has the lower hand, you win and your ante bet is paid out in line with the paytable, and your call bet is paid out at 1:1
    • If the dealer has the greater hand, you lose
    • If your hand ties with the dealer's, your bets are returned

    Return to Player

    Return to Player (RTP): 98.70%. 

    The expected return is the amount we pay out to players relative to the amount of wagering on the game. 

    For example, if we take $100 of wagers we will, on average, pay out $98.70 of wins.
