Casino Hold’Em Table

If you haven’t ever been privy to playing Casino Hold’em Poker before, allow us to give you a little insight into its introduction to the casino gaming world. It was first welcomed along by Stephen Au-Yeung in the year of 2000 as the first Texas Hold’Em Poker game to be played against the casino, rather than against other players. It grew over the proceeding years and is today played in multiple casinos throughout the world. Essentially, it is a straight contest between the player’s hand, which is you, against the dealer’s hand. Au-Yeung actually devised the game in the late 90s, and at the time, he was using it to assist in the training of his partner at the time to play Texas Hold’Em Poker. It was following this training that it was developed into the House game it is known as today, and its first appearances were noted in Egypt, Russia and South Africa. However, it’s not only land-based casinos which have taken to offering it, as many online platforms are now also providing it as a gaming option to players. As such, NetEnt crafted their own online table game dedicated to the product, which comes in its own form of uniqueness.

How It All Looks

Upon loading up the NetEnt Casino Hold’Em product, the first thing which will be noticeable is the green table, which exactly resembles a table you’d find in a land-based casino. At the top of the table are various different chips, and next to this on the right you can see the minimum and maximum bet amounts, which stand at €1 and €100, respectively. The deck of cards can be seen next to this, while on the other side of the table, you’ll be able to see the included pay table for the various different poker hands. Towards your end of the table, you’ll see three circles. These are the ‘Ante’ space, the ‘Call’ space and the ‘AA Bonus’ space. This is where you’ll place your wager(s) for the proceeding game.

Speaking of the wagering, you’ll see in the bottom right hand corner of the screen the various different chips you can gamble with. These starts from €1 and increase up to €5 and then €10 as a maximum. Of course, you can stack these up to reach the maximum wager of €100, if you so choose. There’s a grey chip with a red ‘x’ on it, which will cancel off any wager placed before the cards are dealt. While some knowledge of poker hands is quite a good thing to have, it’s not totally necessary because you can see the different hands down the left hand side, and learn them as you go along with playing.

How to Play Casino Hold'Em Poker

Playing the game is quite simple once you’ve gone through a couple of rounds, and it all starts off with you placing a wager on the ‘Ante’ circle. As noted previously this can be anywhere in the range of €1 and €100, so the choice is entirely yours. Once you’ve done this, you’ll see two things happen. The ‘AA Bonus’ circle will come in to play, as will the ‘Deal’ button at the bottom of the table. What you do next is entirely up to you. You can either press the deal button to proceed with the game, or you can place a wager on the second lit circle. In order to win that side wager, you’ll need to win with a pair of Aces of better, so it’s a gamble of your own initiative that you must take in that instance.

Once you’ve decided upon what to do, you can press the ‘deal’ button to begin the game. This will see two face up cards dealt to you, two dealt face down to the dealer and a further three placed in the middle of the table. Now, looking at your cards, you must decide what kind of hand you’re able to form from the three central cards and your own two. If you think you can play a good hand, you can press the ‘Call’ button, at which point, a wager will be placed on the ‘Call’ circle, equal to your initial bet. This will then deal two further cards into the centre of the table. If, on the other hand, you don’t think you have a decent hand, you can fold, and all bets will be lost.

The dealer will only qualify to continue playing if they can form a pair of 4s or better from their hand and the cards in the centre of the table. If they don’t qualify, you will be the automatic winner. If they do, your hands are compared. Your hand needs to be better than that of the dealer in order to be successful, and the pay you will receive is equal to what can be seen on the pay table mentioned previously.
