How To Play
The aim of the game is to form the best five-card poker hand possible by combining your two cards with a five-card flop. First, you need to place your Ante bet. You will then be dealt two face-up cards and the dealer will receive two facedown cards.
Three card are then dealt to the flop. If your cards combined with the flop make a poker hand then it will be displayed to you. You then need to decide whether to Call and continue playing against the dealer or to Fold and lose your bet. If you Call then a bet equal to twice your Ante bet is placed and the final two cards are dealt to the flop.
The dealer’s cards are then revealed and the best possible poker hands are calculated for you and the dealer. The person with the better hand wins. The dealer must have at least a pair of 4s to qualify, if this is not the case, your Call bet is returned and your Ante bet pays according to the pay table. If the dealer qualifies and you win, your Ante bet pays according to the pay table and your Call bet pays even money.
