No matter how rich the offer in an online casino might be, if there are no live poker tables, a number of players will pack their cyber proverbial bags and simply take their business elsewhere. Poker has definitely become a must for any respectable operator, looking to provide versatility to their members. Therefore, the more variants, the better.
Recreating a standard poker table is a challenging task which is why the software developers often resort to a more simplified solution. The live tables are often opened to an unlimited number of players and the game participants are playing against the house – not each other.
When the dealer announces that the bets are opened, players start with placing the Ante, the initial bet of the session. As soon as the chips are positioned onto the relevant area to the left, dealer will proceed with drawing the cards from the deck and, depending on the hand ranking, players can choose to either fold or stay in the game and raise the wager.
Players who fold will automatically lose the Ante, while the ones who stay will need to follow up with additional bets and new cards will be dealt. Bonus bet is settled independently from Ante but it cannot be placed on its own – to wager on this option, the player will first need to submit the mandatory Ante.
As far as the dealer's professionalism and efficiency go, there are no complaints to be submitted; the same goes for the gameplay and the platform's functionality, although the latter can definitely use some improvement. Ideally, the game rules should be launched without taking the player away from the game in progress. Some other elements, such as light and, to a certain extent, the video quality, are definitely in need of some polishing up.
