It’s Poker Night every night with NetEnt’s Casino Hold’em! There’s a twist though – you’re not playing against other players in this game, but against the bank itself.
Just like the classic poker, you are to place an Ante (blind) before you’re dealt your hand out of the standard pack of 52 cards*.
Your hand will consist of 2 cards, facing up and the dealer’s one will be of 2 cards as well, however his will be faced down.
That’s when 3 community cards are dealt face up as the Flop on the table. At this point you get to choose if you want to continue playing by pressing the ‘Call’ button or opt out by pressing the ‘Fold’ button instead.
As the full set of 5 cards appears on the table, the game automatically finds the strongest hand and pays it out.
The good news for you is that the dealer must have a pair of 4s or higher to qualify. If he doesn’t qualify, you get to keep your Ante and Call bet, and also win according to the “Ante Winnings Payout Table”**.
If he does qualify, and you share the same hand, it’s considered a ”Push” and you get back your ”Ante” and “Call” bet.
The hands are rated in the classic poker way, here’s their value from highest to lowest: Royal Flush, Straight Flush, Four of a Kind (Poker), Full House, Flush, Straight, 3 of a kind, 2 Pair, Pair.
**Ante Winnings Payout Table
Royal Flush pays 100:1

Four of a kind pays 10:1
Full house pays 3:1
Flush pays 2:1
Straight or lower pays 1:1
You can play NetEnt’s Casino Hold’em just for fun with the €5,000 play money balance available to you as soon as you enter the game.

In NetEnt’s Casino Hold’em you also get the opportunity to place a separate “AA-Bonus” bet.
You get paid AA-Bonus winnings when your hand contains a pair of aces or higher after the first 3 community cards are dealt.
