The Casino Hold’em goal is to beat the Dealer’s hand. Both player and dealer receive two cards in the beginning. Another five flop cards are dealt during the game. The best poker hand wins. The hand is standard and consists of five cards. As long as each player has two cards of his own and five – shared, only the highest combination, of five from these seven, counts. The hands are compared in the end of the game.


Casino Hold’em is played with a standard 52-card deck, mixed after each game. The cards strength goes from highest to lowest in this series: Ace (A), King (K), Queen (Q), Jack (J), 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3 and 2. In some specific cases, the Ace might become the lowest card, less than number 2. All the suits – hearts, spades, diamonds, and clubs – are equal.

Game rules

 The rules are as follows.

  1. Play begins with each player making an Ante wager. There is also an optional Progressive Jackpot side bet.
  2. The dealer gives the player and himself two hole cards and three community cards face up on the table.
  3. Each player must decide to either fold or call. If the player folds, then he gives up his cards and his Ante bet. If the player calls, then the Call bet must be equal to two times the Ante bet.
  4. The dealer will then deal two more community cards, for a total of five. The dealer will then turn over his own two cards.
  5. Both hands shall be scored according the highest poker value of the two hole cards and five community cards.
  6. The dealer must have a pair of fours or better to qualify. If the dealer does not qualify then the Ante will pay according to the Ante pay table below and the Call bet will push.
  7. If the dealer qualifies and beats the player, then the player will lose both the Ante and Call.
  8. If the dealer qualifies and the player beats the dealer then the Ante will pay according to the Ante pay table below and the Call bet will pay 1 to 1.
  9. If the dealer qualifies and the player ties the dealer then both Ante and Call bets will push.

Betting instructions

Casino Hold’em starts with Ante bet. You enter the game with this bet. When ready with your Ante bet. The first step is to receive two face-up cards for you, two hidden – for the Dealer and three flop cards – again with faces up.
After receiving your two cards and the three “flop” cards, you have to evaluate your hand and choose among the following:

  • Fold – just click the Fold button; you lose your Ante bet and the game is over.
  • Raise – click the Raise button to continue with an additional Call bet, equal to twice the Ante bet. Another two flop cards are dealt.

When all the five flop cards are on the table, the Dealer’s cards are turned over. Your best hand is formed by a combination between your own two cards and the five flop cards. It is the same with the best Dealer’s hand. The hands are compared to each other and the highest one wins the game.
You might make an additional bonus bet – called AA bet. To make an AA bet: first, you have to determine our Ante bet; then click the AA circle, where you put the bet. AA bet counts your two own cards and the three flop cards, dealt on the first round of the game. AA bet is not related to the other dealing results. You might lose the game, but the AA bet might win or vice versa

Game outcomes

The Poker hand consists of five cards. Each higher category hand beats lower category ones: three cards of one denomination beat two sets of two cards; two sets of two cards beat a set of two cards, etc. If the hands are equal and in the same category, the individual cards set up the winner. If the highest cards in players’ hands are equal, the second highest cards should be compared, and so on. Here is an example: 


The 7 wins over the 2 having the same pair due to the value of the 7.
The comparison continues until the fifth cards are compared.
Note that sixth and seventh cards are not taken in consideration when determining how high the hand is. Your best hand might consist of only one of your own two cards and four of the community cards, even the best hand of a player might consist only of community cards.
