Online casinos, also known as virtual casinos or Internet casinos that enable gamblers to play and wager on casino games through the Internet. It is a prolific form of online gambling.

In a live casino game, you get to see real live dealer’s action as they deal your cards, roll the dice and spin the roulette wheel. They bring all the action to your computer screen giving you one of the most authentic online gambling experiences.

Online casinos host the Live Casinos which are streamed live to players using a platform often developed by platform providers such as Playtech, Allbet, Gameplay, Immersive Asia and Vivo Gaming.

There are many different types of Live Casinos with some filming the casino activity in a live casino. The most commonly used Live Casino is streamed from a studio which is designed specifically for the most authentic casino atmosphere.

As part of the Live Casino experience players get to chat with the croupier as well as other players. Players also have the option to view bets which are placed at Roulette tables. This is unlike anything a player can experience at a typical online casino.

Due to the complexity involved in setting up a Live Casino, the selection of games on offer is not extensive. It is common for most Live Casinos to offer Live Blackjack, Live Roulette as well as Live Baccarat. It is less common, but some Live Casinos also offer Live Casino Hold’em, Asian Roulette, Sicbo and Crazy 21. There is little doubt that as technology evolves and as the demand for this kind of experience increases so more games will be offered in Live Casinos.

The beginning

When playing Texas Hold’em, every player is dealt two cards face down – these are called your ‘hole cards’. Then there is a round of betting where you can Check, Bet or Fold. This stage of the game is known as pre-flop and what you should do is dependent on those hole cards, or starting hand.

When all the betting has finished three shared cards are dealt face up in the middle of the table. This is called the flop.

The middle

After this there is another round of betting, then a fourth shared card – called the turn – is dealt.

There is another round of betting then a final shared card – called the river – and a final round of betting.

Your best Texas Holdem hands will be made by using your hole cards and the five cards in the middle to make the best possible five card poker hand. Not sure what the best Texas Holdem poker hands are? You can visit the poker hand rankings page for more information!

So, for example, if you have K-K and the shared cards are K-9-A-5-K you have four-of-a-kind. If the shared cards were J-Q-5-7-2 you would only have a pair of K.

Sometimes the best texas hold em hand is made by the five shared cards on their own. If they were 10-10-10-10-A and you had K-K your hole cards would not play as there is a four-of-a-kind of higher value already showing.

The end

There are two ways a hand can end.

One is when the players in a hand turn over their hole cards and the player with the best hand wins. This is known as a showdown.

The other is that someone will bet enough that everyone else folds. This is how most hands end in Texas Hold’em and that’s the magic of the game – you don’t always need the best hand to win.

Now let’s recap…

Okay, let’s go over how a Texas Holdem hand works using only poker slang and see if you can keep up.
Firstly, you are dealt your hole cards. Then there is a round of betting. Then the players remaining see a flop. Then there is another round of betting. Then you see a turn card. Then another round of betting. Then a final river card. Then one more round of betting. The best five card hand wins. Clear? Excellent!
