Rather than taking on fellow poker enthusiasts, you will be betting against the house in Live Casino Hold'em, with action streamed live in high quality from Playtech's European studio in Riga, Latvia. The game houses revamped gameplay and supports AA side bet, but there is no reason to worry as friendly dealers will guide you through every hand, while you can also check out the extensive Rules section.
The main objective is obviously to have a stronger hand than the dealer's, but while players receive even money payout for standard hands, they can get up to 100x total stake if they happen to hit a flush or higher. And with Casino Hold'em played at premium Playtech tables equipped with all kinds of special features, you will be in for endless hours of quality entertainment.
Live Casino Hold'em is played with a single deck that is reshuffled after each hand. The player is required to place Ante bet in order to start the hand, at which point he is dealt two cards face up, the dealer is given two cards face down and three community cards are dealt. At this point, he can either Call or Fold, with Call bet worth twice the Ante wager.
In case the player folds, he loses the Ante bet and if he calls, two more community cards are dealt and dealer reveals his hand to see whose hand is stronger. The dealer needs to have a pair of 4s or stronger to qualify and if he doesn't, the player wins the Ante bet and his Call wager is returned.
The AA side bet can be placed together with the Ante wager, but the player must complete his hand in order to receive potential winnings from this bet type. The side bet wins if your first five cards include Aces or better, with payouts ranging between 7 to 1 and 100 to 1.
Live Casino Hold'em brings arguably world's most popular poker variant to the casino floor before streaming it live in great quality to your computers. Chances are you will love the new game play and additional opportunities to turn a nice profit with both regular wagers and AA side bets featuring payouts up to 100 to 1. And with skilled live dealers at your disposal 24/7, you will be able to enjoy a truly unique gaming experience.
