Casino (Texas) Hold ‘Em Poker is now the world’s most popular poker game on which most major tournaments are based, and anyone with a basic understanding of poker can easily play this game.
Casino Hold ‘Em Poker takes the basic concepts of the game and allows players to play against the bank rather than against each other.
The idea of the game is to make the best 5 card poker hand from 7 cards and beat the bank.
The table consists of 7 playing positions with each player having their own position and set of bet “boxes” :
A/A Position for bonus bet
ANTE Position for the “Ante” bet
CALL Position for the “Call” bet
In front of the dealer is a box which will hold 5 “flop” cards and to the left, 2 additional card boxes.
Players must place a bet on the box marked “ANTE” in accordance with the table minimum and maximum.
Each of the players and the dealer will then receive 2 cards and the dealer will place an additional 3 cards in the “flop” area.
The “flop” cards are used by all players and the dealer to make up their 5-card poker hand.
It is at this point that the player must make the decision to either “CALL” (Play) or “FOLD”.
(i) Call (Play)
Should the player chose to CALL, then a bet of an amount double the ante must be placed in the “Call” box.
Should a player choose to FOLD, then the ante is lost and the player’s game is over.
The dealer will then deal an additional 2 cards to the flop area making a total of 5 exposed cards.
All the players and the dealer now have a total of 7 cards (2 in their hand and 5 in the flop) from which to make the best 5-card poker hand.
Should the dealer not qualify with a pair of 4’s or better, then the ANTE bets are paid according to the pay table.
Should the dealer qualify with a pair of 4’s or better, then:
(i) If the player beats the dealer:
The ANTE will be paid according to the pay table and the CALL paid at 1:1 (even money).
(ii) If the dealer beats the player:
The ANTE and CALL bets both lose.
Should the player and the dealer have exactly the same hand, then the bets will stand or push. In other words, the bet will not win or lose.
Royal Flush 100:1
Straight Flush 20:1
4 of a Kind 10:1
Full House 3:1
Straight or Less 1:1

The Bonus Bet
The player has the option to place an additional and completely separate bet that the player will achieve a hand of “A pair of Aces or better” from the first 5 cards received.
These 5 cards will consist of the players 2 cards and the 3 cards in the flop.
Should the player achieve “A pair of Aces or better” with these cards, then the bonus bet will be paid at 7:1 (seven times the stake) for any winning combination.
Please note that a bonus bet must be placed at the same time as the ANTE and should the player fold, then the bonus bet will be lost.
