How to play Live Casino Hold'Em
Live Casino Hold'Em offers one of the smallest house edges out of all the live dealer games available at Betfair Casino. If you are looking to get to grips with the hand rankings of poker, Casino Hold'Em is a great, low-risk place to start.
The game begins by placing an 'Ante' bet on the table. Once you've placed the Ante, it's also possible to place the optional 'AA' side bet - more on that shortly. You'll be dealt two cards face up and the dealer will receive two cards face down, before three cards are dealt to the flop.
At this point you can 'Fold' and lose your initial Ante bet or place a second 'Call' bet, effectively doubling your Ante bet.
The final two cards are then dealt to the flop and the dealer's two hole cards are turned face up. If you can make a higher-value poker hand than the dealer, you win the round, with the payout reflecting the quality of your hand in the paytable.
The AA side bet requires you to make at least a pair of Aces using only the first three cards of the flop and your hole cards.
