Live dealer poker

The below poker games differ from the games you’ll find in your typical online poker room in two key respects:

  1. here you are playing against the house…NOT other players; and
  2. the deal is real, not simulated.

A growing list of live poker variations are now available, including Casino Hold’em, Texas Hold’em and Caribbean Stud Poker.

Bluffing plays no part in any of these games!

Live Casino Hold’em Poker

Playtech, Evolution Gaming and Microgaming all offer live deal Casino Hold’em (actually with identical house rules).

An Ante bet gets you a couple of pocket cards and a look at a Flop. A Call bet gets you a look at the Turn, River and the dealer’s cards. Winning payouts vary depending on the quality of your winning poker hand.

Payouts of up to 100:1 offered on your Ante bet.

Live 2 Hand Casino Hold’em Poker

In 2019 Evolution Gaming added a new Casino Hold’em poker table, allowing players to play 2 hands against the dealer rather than just the one.

The hands are played independently, and the rules applying to each are the same as for their regular Casino Hold’em table.

Live Caribbean Stud Poker

Caribbean Stud was introduced by Evolution Gaming in 2015.

In mid 2019 Playtech launched Casino Stud Poker – same game by a different name.

You place an Ante bet and then 5 cards are dealt to the player, and 5 to the dealer although only 1 of the dealer’s cards is dealt face up.  You then decide whether to fold or Call (2x Ante bet) and see whether you beat the dealer’s hand.

Offers payouts of up to 100:1 on the Call bet and 1000:1 on ‘5+1 Bonus‘ bet.

As of January 2017, a progressive jackpot side bet was added to Evolution’s Caribbean Stud.
