LIVE CASINO HOLD'EM FEATURES
- Live Casino Hold’em is a single deck variation of the five-card poker

- Side bets mean you must land a pair of aces or better from the first five cards dealt
- The dealer must have at least a pair of fours to qualify for the best available hand
HOW TO PLAY LIVE CASINO HOLD'EM
In its simplest form, players are dealt two cards that they must use along with the five-card flop to make the best possible poker hand. To begin betting, you need to select a stake by tapping the number of chips you want to place. You can place several chips on different betting positions simultaneously. Once the timer hits zero, no more bets are allowed, and the round will start.
The community cards are then revealed, allowing you to call or fold based on the strength of your hand. The last two cards are turned over and the best possible hands are automatically highlighted. If your hand is better than the dealer’s, you’ll receive a payout.
LIVE CASINO HOLD'EM BEST STRATEGIES
Unlike online roulette casino games, poker doesn’t have any formalised strategies with catchy names. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t use tactics to potentially improve your chances of winning hands. For example, lots of poker players like to be aggressive to knock other players and the dealer off their stride. Alternatively, you can be passive by calling more than you bet, letting the cards dictate the flow of the game.
The main strategy to remember is to be patient. Good cards will show up at some point, and you want to take advantage when they do by playing the long game.
