Live Casino Hold’em by Playtech

live casino hold'em

Live Casino Hold’em is another poker casino game that found its way to the live dealer section of online casinos. Casino Hold’em is an exciting fast paced variation of the very popular and much loved five-card Texas Hold’em poker game. 

In a clever twist on Texas Hold’em, players play against the dealer and not each other which means that there is no limit to the number of players that can take a seat on the table.

The game is dealt from a single shuffled deck of 52 cards and there are always 2 live dealers attending the table, one to deal the cards and the other shuffling the other deck that will be used in the next deal.

How to play Live Casino Holdem

If you are familiar with Texas Hold’em then Live Casino Hold’em will be very easy to understand and play. The game begins with players placing a bet (or Ante). There is an option to also place a Bonus bet (or AA bet). You have to confirm your bet in order to be accepted.

The dealer then deals two cards to the players and two cards face-down to their own position. Three community cards – which can be shared by all players in the hand – are then spread in the middle of the table.

You can then choose to call and continue playing against the dealer or fold and lose their bets.
If you call, a bet amount equal to your Ante bet times two (x2) will automatically be taken from your balance and placed on the Call position on the game table.

The dealer will deal two more community cards to the board so there is a total of five cards. You and the dealer will then put together the best five card poker hand from the two cards dealt to you and the five on the board. Your hand is then compared to the live dealer’s and if you have a better hand you win

The dealer must have at least a pair of fours to make a qualifying hand. If the dealer fails to qualify, your call bet is refunded to you.

Live Casino Holdem Payouts

What makes Live Casino Hold’em a popular live casino game is that you do not only win a standard 1:1 sum if you have the stronger, but for some hands you can win even more. The house edge, excluding the side bet is around 2.16% depending on the live casino but most are based on the the ante paytable listed below.

Royal Flush – 100:1
Straight Flush – 20:1
Four of a Kind – 10:1
Full House – 3:1
Flush – 2:1
Straight or Less 1:1

Live Casino Hold’em has also a side bet, the AA Bonus bet which is based on the poker value of the player’s two cards and the first three cards from the flop. It pays out the following:

Royal Flush – 100:1
Straight Flush – 50:1
Four of a Kind – 40:1
Full House – 30:1
Flush – 20:1
Pair of aces to a Straight – 7:1
