3. Playing the game
To participate in the game, you must spread your wager evenly on the ANTE and BLIND boxes. If you want to, you can also bet on the BONUS box.
The dealer will deal you two cards face down, then two cards for the Bank, again face down.
Note, however, that if the dealer uses an automatic card shuffler, the dealing order changes: the dealer will begin by placing 5 community cards on the table, all face down, then two for each player, and finally two for the Bank.
After consulting your two cards, you then have the choice of:
- Betting three or four times the amount of the ANTE box in the PLAY box;
- Or checking.
The dealer will then turn over three community cards (the Flop).
If you have not yet bet on the PLAY box, you now have the choice of:
- Betting twice the amount of the ANTE box in the PLAY box;
- Or checking.
The dealer will then turn over two other community cards called TURN and RIVER.
If you have still not yet bet on the PLAY box, you have the choice of:
- Putting the amount of the ANTE box in the PLAY box;
- Or folding. In this case, you will lose your initial bets, except the one placed on the BONUS box if you have a three-of-a-kind or better.
4. End of the game & winning hand
The dealer turns over the two bank cards and announces their hand.
- If your hand is higher than the Bank's, PLAY and ANTE will be paid to you evenly;
- If the Bank has a higher hand than you, PLAY, ANTE and BLIND will be lost;
- In the event of a tie, the amounts of PLAY, ANTE and BLIND will remain.
- The BLIND will only be paid if your hand is higher than Bank and you have at least a STRAIGHT.
- The BONUS will be paid from THREE OF A KIND up, regardless of the Bank's hand.
The Bank needs a pair or better to qualify.
If the Bank does not qualify, the ANTE will be returned to you, then the other bets (PLAY, BLIND and BONUS) will win or lose as stated above.
You can consult the winnings reports (see payout table) at any time, as they are entered on the playing mat.
