How To Play
To start a game you first need to place your Ante bet, simply click on the chip values at the lower right of the screen and then place it on the table. At this point, you can also place the 5+1 Bonus Bet and the Jackpot side bet.
When the game round starts, you and the dealer are dealt five cards each. Your five cards are dealt face-up while the dealer’s first card is dealt face-up and the rest are dealt facedown. At this point, you need to choose whether to Call, and continue playing against the dealer, or Fold, and lose your Ante bet. The dealer’s hand is then revealed and the two hands are compared to see who wins.
To help speed up the game play you will find buttons such as ‘Double’, which quickly doubles your bet, ‘Rebet & Deal’, which quickly starts the next round, and ‘Double & Deal’, which starts the next round with double the Ante bet of the previous round.
Special Features and Payouts
There is an option to place a Blind Call bet (on the Call 2x position on the table). If you place this bet then you will automatically participate in the entire round, meaning that if you don’t make a decision to Call or Fold in the allowed time then the game will automatically Call.
The dealer can only qualify with Ace King or better. If the dealer doesn’t qualify then your Call bet is returned and your Ante bet pays 1:1. If the dealer qualifies and you win, then the Ante bet pays 1:1 and the Call bet pays according to the paytable. If your hands are equal then both your bets are returned as a push.
A Royal Flush pays out at 100:1, a Straight Flush pays out at 50:1, Four of a Kind pays out at 25:1, a Full House pays out at 10:1, a Flush pays out at 7:1, a Straight pays out 5t 4:1, Three of a Kind pays out at 3:1, Two Pairs pays out at 2:1, One Pair pays out at 1:1 and High Card pays out at 1:1.
If you have placed the 5+1 Bonus bet then you win if your five cards combined with the dealer’s first face-up card forms a poker hand of at least Three of a Kind. It pays 1000:1 for a Royal Flush, 200:1 for a Straight Flush, 100:1 for Four of a Kind, 20:1 for a Full House, 15:1 for a Flush, 10:1 for a Straight, and 7:1 for Three of a Kind.
If you have placed the Progressive Jackpot side bet then you will win the jackpot if you are dealt a Royal Flush. A Straight Flush will pay 2500:1, Four of a Kind pays 250:1, a Full House pays 50:1, a Flush pays 25:1, a Straight pays 10:1 and Three of a Kind pays 3:1.
