The goal of the game is to form a combination of cards and beat the dealer’s hand.
The round starts with the player making an Ante bet. At this point, an optional side bet might be placed. Two cards are dealt face up to the player and two cards face down to the dealer. Additionally, three community cards are also dealt face up in the middle of the table.
The player must decide to either Call or Fold. If the player decides to stay in the game, he/she must make a Call-bet which is double his/her Ante-bet.
At this point, two more community cards are dealt face up and the dealer reveals her two hole cards.
Both player and the dealer form the best five-card poker combinations by using their own two cards and the five community cards.
Dealer compares both combinations to decide who the winner of the round is. Dealer qualifies with a Pair of Fours or better.
If the dealer does not qualify. Ante-bet pays according to the Ante Win paytable and the Call-bet will push.
If the dealer qualifies, there are 3 possible outcomes:
- Player’s hand beats dealer’s hand and his Ante-bet pays according to the Ante Win paytable. His/her Call-bet pays 1 to 1.
- Dealer beats the Player and the Player loses his/her bets.
- Dealer and Player tie and all bets push.
