Although CyberBingo is primarily based on a large selection of bingo games, you can also find a variety of Arcade & Casino games. If you never played before, don’t worry, at CyberBingo you can find a lot of help on how to play them. Slots are extremely easy and so exciting, but if you’re looking for a more skilled game, try and play some of our Video Poker or Table Games. Here below you can find some basics about the most favourite US game, Texas Hold’em which is played with a 52-card deck, shuffled before each round. Try it out and you’ll see how exciting it can get!
Texas Hold’em Basics:
- To start a hand, you need to place an Ante Bet, which is the first bet needed for the game, and click Deal.
- 2 cards are dealt face up to you and 2 cards face down to the dealer.
- You must either make a Flop Bet, which is a bet needed to deal the first three community cards or Fold/surrender the Ante Bet. The Flop Bet needs to be exactly double the Ante Bet.
- Three community cards are then dealt face up.
- This time, you must either make a Turn Bet (a bet needed to deal the forth community card), or Check to continue without making an additional bet. The Turn Bet is always equal to the Ante Bet.
- A forth community card is dealt face up.
- To deal the fifth card you must make a River Bet or Check to proceed without making an additional bet. The River Bet also needs to be equal to the Ante Bet.
- The best 5-card poker hand, using any combination of your 2 initial cards and the 5 community cards, wins. Hands of equal value are a tie.
Winning Hands are as follows:
Royal Flush: Five consecutive cards from 10 to Ace in the same suit.
Straight Flush: Any five card sequence of the same suit, and all are consecutive. Ranking between straights is determined by the value of the high end of the straight.
Four of a Kind: All four cards of the same index (eg. Q, Q, Q, Q).
Full House: Three of a kind combined with a pair (eg. A, A, A, 5, 5). Ties of a full house are broken by the three of a kind, as you cannot have two equal sets of three of a kind in a single deck.
Flush: Any five cards of the same suit, but not in sequence. The high card determines the winner if two or more people have a flush.
Straight: Five cards in sequence, but not in the same suit. A straight cannot wrap, meaning it is not a straight if you have a Queen, King, Ace, Two, Three. The higher straight wins if two or more people have a straight. In case of straights that tie, your money is returned to you.
Three of a Kind: Three cards of the same value. The highest set of the three cards wins.
Two Pairs: Two seperate pairs (eg. A, A, Q, Q). The pair with the higher value is used to determine the winner of a tie.
One Pair: One pair of two equal value cards constitutes a pair (eg. K, K).
Highest Card: If no one has any of the above winning hands, the tie is determined by the highest value card in the hand. If the highest cards are a tie then the tie is broken by the second highest card. Suits are not used to break ties.
