We offer single deck Live Casino Hold ‘em with a real dealer and a real Casino Hold'em game table. Live Casino Hold'em is a variation of five-card poker. You are dealt two cards, which you must use along with the five-card flop to make the best possible poker hand. After each game round, the deck of cards is reshuffled.
The AA side bet is optional. Here, you can bet on whether the first five cards dealt (your two cards plus the first three flop cards) will include a pair of Aces or better.
To play the game:
If the Multiple Bets option is supported, additional bets are accepted after your first bet has been placed and confirmed. Multiple bets are accepted only if the betting round is still open. Remember to confirm each additional bet by clicking the Confirm bets button.
At each stage of the game round, the best available hands are formed automatically.
The dealer must have at least a pair of 4s to qualify, if this is not the case, your Call bet is returned and your Ante bet pays according to the paytable.
If the dealer qualifies and you win, your Ante bet pays according to the paytable and your Call bet pays even money.
The Ace is a semi-wildcard; it can be the highest-value card in a straight of A, K, Q, J, 10, or the lowest-value card in a straight of 5, 4, 3, 2, A.
When you win, your bets are returned to you along with your payout. Winning hands pay according to the below listed paytables. Call bets pay even money.
