Introduction to: Casino Holdem®
The following text is provided by the Wizard of Odds himself.

Casino Hold 'Em is a poker variation, similar to Texas Hold 'Em, that is played in Egypt, Russia, South Africa, Holland, Latvia, Estonia, Ireland, Morocco, Malta, Ukraine, Panama, and Romania. It is also available to play online at casinos using Net Gaming, Real Time Gaming, Playtech...

Roules

1. Play begins with each player making an ante bet.

2. Two cards are dealt face down to each player and dealer. The player may examine his own cards. The dealer will also deal three community cards (called the flop) in the center of the table.

3. Each player must decide whether to fold or to call. If the player folds he gives up his cards and his ante bet. If the player calls, the call must be equal to twice the ante bet.

4. The dealer deals two more community cards for a total of five. The dealer exposes his own two cards.

5. The player's hand is scored according to the highest poker value of the player's two cards and the five community cards. Likewise the dealer shall use his own two cards and the five community cards.

6. The dealer must have a pair of fours or better to qualify. If the dealer does not qualify then the ante will pay according to the ante pay table below and the call bet will push.

7. If the dealer qualifies and beats the player then the player will lose both the ante and call bets.

8. If the dealer qualifies and the player beats the dealer then the ante bet pays according to the Ante Pay Table below and the call bet will pay 1 to 1.

9. If the dealer qualifies and the player ties with the dealer then both ante and call bets will push.

Strategy
Unfortunately there is no easy way to quantify optimal strategy for this game. I can say the optimal strategy player will raise 82% of the time. So only in the worst 18% of hands should the player fold. In general these are when the player has two singletons in the hole that are low compared to the flop with little or no chance for a straight or flush.

Side Bets
I am aware of two side bets, known as the AA+ Bonus as follows. Both are based on the poker value of the player's two cards and the three flop cards.

Stephen,
Where in Las Vegas can we play your games? Any U.S. games?

Hi Paigowdan,

Unfortunately My Distributor TCSJOHNHUXLEY has not been able to install any of my games in the US market yet.

By the way Casino Holdem® has been approved in Las Vegas Nevada, if any of you guys can get my game out there in Las Vegas Nevada, I will make sure you get something out of it.
Below is the info for Casino Hold'em® Poker.

I am old school live action hold'em player. Not in Stephen's league at all. But I would play this game.
My only concern is whether the dealer qualifying could be removed ? Perhaps by incorporating the
side bet into the basic game ? Math is not my long suit. But getting a winner and then the dealer not
qualifying is frustrating !

I bet $10 on the "ante" bet.

I was dealt 3c, Kh and bet $20 on the "call" bet.

The dealer had 7s, Kd.

The flop was, Ad, Qs, 10d, 6s, 5c.

This gave me Ad, Kh, Qs, 10d, 6s.

It gave the dealer Ad, Kd, Qs, 10d, 7s.

The dealer's 7s was higher than my 6s but I was declared the winner.

According to the rules:

[6. The dealer must have a pair of fours or better to qualify. If the dealer does not qualify then the ante will pay according to the ante pay table below and the call bet will push.]

If the dealer doesn't qualify, does the player always win the ante bet, even if the dealer has a higher ranking hand as in the hand above?

Here is another example of the dealer having a higher ranking hand and the player won.

If the dealer doesn't qualify, it's as if he folded after matching your ante bet.

You "won" $20 for the ante - but that was really your $10 bet and the dealer's $10 ante.
You "won" $20 for the call bet - but that was really a push / return of your $20 bet.

For the record, I would name the "call" bet, a "raise" bet.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

After playing this game a little longer, I discovered some good and bad things about it.

The good thing is that if the dealer doesn't qualify, the player will win the ante bet, even if the dealer has a higher ranking hand than the player.

The bad thing is that if you decide to bet, you have to DOUBLE the size of the ante bet with a "call" bet. If you do win a hand, the bonus payouts are only for the ante bet. The "call" bet always pays even money.

Hi FatGeezus,

But the Ante bet alwas pays according to the Ante Pay Table, even if the dealer doesn't qualify.

The House Edge on this game is only 2.16%

That 2.16 is based on optimal play. Way beyond the average player. But then the average player just wants to play !!
