    Live Casino Hold'em Game Overview

    The aim of Live Casino Hold'em is to beat the dealer's hand by getting the best possible five-card hand, made of two hands dealt to you and five community cards from a standard 52-card deck.

    As this game is played against the dealer rather than other players, an unlimited number of players can play simultaneously at the table.

    At the beginning of the game, you will place your Ante (initial) bet.

    At this point, you will also have the option to place a Bonus bet.

    Bonus bets pay out if a pair of Aces or higher is dealt in the first five cards.

    Once the initial cards have been dealt, you will need to decide whether to 'Call' and continue playing, or to 'Fold' and lose your Ante and Bonus bets.

    If you have a winning Bonus bet, you will received a "Call to collect your Bonus Win!" message.

    By choosing to Call, you will place a Call bet, which is double your Ante bet.

    If you do not make a decision to 'Call' or 'Fold' within the time allocated, then your hand is automatically folded and all bets are lost.

    Once all the cards have been dealt, the best paying hands are compared to find the winner.  


    Game Outcomes

    • The dealer must have a pair of 4s or higher to qualify
    • If the dealer does not qualify then you win - your Ante bet is paid out according to the payout table but your Call bet is just returned to you
    • You will win if the dealer's hand qualifies but is lower than yours. In this situation, your Ante bet is paid out according to the payout table and the Call bet pays 1:1
    • You lose your Ante bet and Call bet if the dealer's hand qualifies and is higher than yours
    • If you and the dealer have exactly the same hand then it is classed as a 'Push' and your Ante bet and Call bets are returned to you

    Return to Player

    Expected return to the player (RTP) for the Ante bet: 97.84% 

    Expected return to player (RTP) for the Bonus bet: 93.74%. 

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