The Netent poker table games part 3: Casino Hold’em

Published on by Adam

Netent Casino Hold'em poker table game gives game play 'with a bite'In the series about the Netent poker table games the second game we want to focus on is Casino Hold’em poker. Of course just like Netent Texas Hold’em Pro this game is based on Texas Hold’em poker but has an extra game feature which makes it ‘slightly’ different.

Same Texas Hold’em, but ‘slightly’ different?

Well, to be honest… ‘slightly’ is a huge understatement and should actually be ‘completely’… Because although the game uses the same poker hands and is based on the same 7 card (of which 5 ‘community cards’) game play, Casino Hold’em is far more complex than its Texas Hold’em Pro counterpart and therefore in nothing looks (or ‘plays’) like the latter. The game not only has a unique extra bonus betting option but also a ‘differentiated’ pay table (of course related to the different poker hand rankings) that really gives an extra exciting dimension to the overall game play of Netent Casino Hold’em.

Casino Hold’em game play

As stated in Casino Hold’em the standard Texas Hold’em poker hands are applied to determine a game round winner. In order from highest to lowest ranked these poker hands are:

  • Royal Flush (5 consecutive cards from 10 to Ace and from the same suit)
  • Straight Flush (5 consecutive cards from the same suit)
  • Four of a Kind (4 cards with the same value)
  • Full house (3 and 2 cards of the same value)
  • Flush (5 cards of the same suit)
  • Straight (5 consecutive cards)
  • Three of a Kind (3 cards of the same value)
  • Two Pairs
  • Pair
  • High Card

A game round on Netent Casino Hold’em poker table game is initiated by placing a bet (with a minimum of € 1 and a maximum of € 100) on the ‘Ante’. Already at this point the player needs to decide to also place a bet on the ‘AA’ bonus bet feature, which means a bet is placed on having a pair of Aces (hence ‘AA’ bet) or better (any higher ranked poker hand) by combining the 2 first (open faced) dealt player’s cards with the first 3 dealt (‘flop’) community cards. An occurring AA Bonus win pays the amount wagered and according to the special AA Bonus pay table which states the following:

  • Flush or higher pays 25 to 1
  • Pair of Aces to Straight pays 7 to 1

After having placed the Ante bet (possibly combined with the AA bet of which the maximum limit is set on € 50) the 2 player cards and the 3 community cards are dealt out of a standard 52 cards deck (the dealer deals himself also 2 ‘player’ cards). The player now needs to decide to either ‘fold’ (and loose the Ante bet and any winnings from an AA bet) or place a bet on the Call (which is always double the amount of what was bet on the Ante).

When the Call bet is placed the remaining community cards (the ‘turn’ and the ‘river’) are dealt after which the ‘showdown’ takes place. The two ‘player’ cards of the dealer are revealed, the poker hands are compared and the winner is determined.

As mentioned above Casino Hold’em has a ‘differentiated’ pay table that pays out the Ante bet according to the rank of the winning poker hand. The ‘Ante winnings’ pay table of Casino Hold’em is the following:

  • Royal Flush pays 100 to 1
  • Straight Flush pays 20 to 1
  • Four of a Kind pays 10 to 1
  • Full house pays 3 to 1
  • Flush pays 2 to 1
  • Straight or less pays 1 to 1

After a showdown the dealer needs to ‘qualify’ by having at least a pair of 4s (or better). This implies the following game round results and according pay out formulas are possible:

  • Player wins and dealer qualifies: player gets the Ante bet paid according to the Ante Winnings pay table and the Call bet paid 1 to 1;
  • Player wins and dealer doesn’t qualify: the player wins only the Ante bet according to the Ante Winnings pay table (see above);
  • Player and dealer have the same poker hands: it’s a ‘push’, neither the dealer or player wins (or looses);
  • Player looses: all bets are lost.

Netent Casino Hold’em, like all Netent poker table games, has a very high ‘Return to Player’ percentage of 98,75% which can make playing the game not only a very gratifying event 9in terms of excitement) but potentially also a very profitable one. Various game settings (as usual) can be adjusted and of course the overall design of the game is Netent patented 3D ‘state of the art’.
