Pull up a seat.
In 2 Hand Casino Hold’em, you take on the house and have two different hands, and you are able to bet on both of them simultaneously.
A standard 52-card deck is used in this live casino game, and following every game the cards are shuffled.
Your goal is to build a hand that is more valuable than the dealer's with five cards. This is formed of the two cards you are dealt, alongside the five community cards.
As well as being able to play two separate hands in each game round, a Bonus bet can also be placed. This pays out if a Pair of Aces or higher is dealt in the first five cards (your two cards plus the 'Flop', which is the initial three community cards).
The initial Ante bet and optional Bonus bet
Start this game by making an Ante bet on either Hand 1 or Hand 2, or on both hands. From your point of view, Hand 1 is on the right-hand side, while Hand 2 is on the left. Cards are dealt in a clockwise direction by the dealer, beginning with Hand 1.
An optional Bonus bet is available for whichever hand/s you placed an Ante bet on. At the end of the game the Bonus bet is considered separately to your main bets, giving you a different chance to win.
Your cards are then dealt. If you made an Ante bet on either/both Hand 1 and Hand 2, both of those hands will be dealt.
Each hand receives two cards face-up. The dealer's two cards will both be facing down. In the middle of the table, the 'Flop' is dealt face up, and these three community cards are used by both you and the dealer to build your hands.
As the game progresses, a further two community cards are dealt. When the first two cards have been dealt, the value of your card combination will be displayed on the screen.
Call or Fold
If you make a ‘Call’, you will continue to play any active hands you have.
If you decide to ‘Fold’, your forfeit any active bets with the exception of the Bonus bet.
On any given hand, the Call bet is always double the Ante bet.
You will lose the Ante bet if you ‘Fold’ on either hand.
If decision time is over and you have not made a ‘Call’ or ‘Fold’ decision on a given hand, the game will 'Fold' that hand automatically, meaning all bets on that hand are lost.
The Bonus Bet
The AA Bonus Bet is an optional side bet, and this is based on the five cards only of your hand/s.
Regardless of whether you beat or lose to the dealer in the main game, this side bet will pay out.
You can only place a Bonus bet if you have placed an Ante bet.
On a given hand, if you hold a Pair of Aces or better and you have placed the Bonus bet then you trigger a payout of between 7:1 and 100:1 according to the pay table.
If you fail to complete this hand, you lose the Bonus bet.
Extra Community Cards
The dealer will deal two additional community cards after the expiration of decision time. These cards are referred to as ‘Turn’ and ‘River’).
When these two cards have been dealt, the dealer’s initial two cards are turned face up.
The best-paying hands are formed and compared for your hand/s and for the dealer’s hand in order to locate the winner, with five out of the seven available cards used for each hand.
Hand 1 is made up of the two cards dealt to that hand, in addition to three of the five community cards. If the dealer doesn't hold a Pair of Fours or better, they will not qualify.
You will win automatically if the dealer fails to qualify. As a result, the Ante bet is paid out according to the payout table, and your Call bet is returned. On screen, you will see the best five cards for each hand alongside the winning combination's name.
Should the dealer qualify with a weaker hand than yours, you will win. In this case, the Ante bet is paid out according to the payout table, and you also win the Call bet which pays out at 1:1.
Should the dealer’s hand qualify and is more valuable than yours, you lose your Ante bet as well as your Call bet.
If your hand is identical to the dealer's, it is a Push and nobody wins or loses. Your Ante bet and Call bets are refunded.
If you and dealer have hands of the same type, the winner will be the one that includes highest value card (e.g. three Jacks beats three 10s; a Flush of Q, J, 10, 9, 8 beats a Flush of 10, 9, 8, 7, 6).
Should you tie with the dealer, the next highest card that is not part of the paying hand (known as the ‘Kicker’) will settle the winning hand.
Return to Player
Return To Player (RTP): 97.84 - 99.18% on the Main Bet, and 93.74% on the Bonus Bet.
The expected return is the amount we pay out to players relative to the amount of wagering on the game.
For example, if we take £100 of wagers we will, on average pay out between £97.84 and £99.18 of wins on Ante Bets, and £93.74 on Bonus Bets.
