This game is a type of five-card poker where players compete against the house with two separate hands.
The aim of the game is to get a better five-card hand than the dealer.
Each player receives two separate hands from a standard 52-card deck.
You can choose to bet on one hand or both.
Each hand is formed of two cards that are dealt to the player plus five community cards.
Initial Ante Bet
At the start of the game, place an Ante bet on one of the hands or on both hands.
Hand 1 is shown on the right-hand side of the screen.
Hand 2 is shown on the left-hand side.
Cards are dealt clockwise beginning with Hand 1.
Two cards are dealt face-up to each hand that has been bet on.
The dealer's initial two cards are dealt face-down.
Three community cards are dealt face-up to begin with - another two are dealt later.
Optional Bonus Bet
You can choose to place a Bonus bet on a hand that already has an Ante bet.
The Bonus bet is evaluated separately at the end of each game.
If a pair of Aces or higher is dealt in the first five cards then the Bonus bet will pay.
Call or Fold
Once you have received your initial two cards, you can choose to 'Call' or 'Fold'.
Choosing to 'Call' will continue play and double the Ante bet on a hand.
Opting to 'Fold' on a hand will lose the Ante bet for that hand.
Note: The Bonus bet may still be won even if the Ante bet is lost on a hand.
Hands will automatically fold if no decision is made before the allocated time expires.
Turn and River
Once the decision time expires, two additional community cards will be dealt.
These cards are called the 'Turn' and 'River'.
The dealer's first two cards will then turn so that they are face-up.
To qualify, a hand must have a pair of fours or higher.
You will automatically win if the dealer doesn't qualify.
When this happens, the Ante bet is paid according to the payout table and the Call bet is returned.
You will also win if the dealer's hand qualifies but is lower in value than your hand - this will pay the Ante bet according to the payout table and the Call bet will pay 1:1.
If the dealer's hand qualifies and is higher than your hand then you lose your Ante bet and Call bet.
The game ends in a push if your hand is equal to the dealer's hand.
A push will return the Ante bet and Call bet.
In the event of the dealer having the same type of hand as you, the hand that includes the highest valued card will win.
The next highest valued card that isn't part of the paying hand is called the 'Kicker'.
Return to Player
Return To Player (RTP): 97.84% on the Ante 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 £97.84 of wins on Ante Bets, and £93.74 on Bonus Bets.
