In poker the aim is to get a hand with a card combination that is stronger than the dealer’s hand.
To begin the game you should make your initial bet by placing chips in the first box (Ante). It is also allowed to play on all boxes simultaneously. When playing on several boxes the Player is only allowed to see one hand and the others will remain blind. Both bets – ANTE and BET – have to be made in the case of blind hands. The BET equals double the ANTE bet. The dealer will deal five cards to each player and for the dealer. The cards will be dealt face-down to the Players, while the last (fifth) card for the dealer will be face-up. In the case of an open hand after all cards have been dealt Players have the option of buying one or two extra cards by paying the fee of a single or double ANTE bet. Then you must consider your cards and decide whether you double your initial bet (by placing chips on the BET box) and continue to play or fold to surrender, losing the ANTE bet. After that the dealer will turn over the remaining four cards.
In case the dealer’s hand includes at least an Ace/King, the wins depend on your cards. In case the dealer has a stronger combination, the bets do not win. In case your combination is stronger, the initial ANTE bet is paid 1 to 1 and the second BET is paid according to the combination.
Royal Flush 100 to 1
Straight Flush 50 to 1
Four of a Kind 20 to 1
Full House 7 to 1
Flush 5 to 1
Straight 4 to 1
Three of a Kind 3 to 1
Two Pair 2 to 1
One Pair 1 to 1
High Card Ace/King 1 to 1
In case the dealer has no game the player has two options: whether only the initial ANTE bet is paid no matter what the player’s hand is or the player can buy a new card to replace the dealer’s highest card for a fee equalling the ANTE. In case the dealer still has no game the ANTE bet will not be paid.
You may also play with a bonus. A bonus is a separate extra bet that counts starting from a Straight. A bonus bet is paid before buying the sixth card or before changing cards, meaning that a bonus is only played with the combination of the first five cards.
Royal Flush 3000 x 1 bonus bet
Straight Flush 800 x 1 bonus bet
Four of a Kind 250 x 1 bonus bet
Full House 150 x 1 bonus bet
Flush 100 x 1 bonus bet
Straight 50 x 1 bonus bet
