Live Poker RTP (Return To Player) refers to the amount we expect to pay out to players relative to the amount of wagering on any of our games. If an RTP is 95%, this means that we would pay out £95 in wins for every £100 that is wagered on average.
Due to the side bets and bonus bets available in our live poker titles, there are a variety of different RTPs; for example, in 2 Hand Casino Hold'em, the average pay out is between £97.84 and £99.18 of wins on ante bets, while on bonus bets this stands at £93.74.
If you have any questions about playing live poker, you can view the answers to some of our most common questions below.
Some live poker games vary from the way you might expect to play a typical version of the card game in a Las Vegas casino. While you can still experience the traditional manner and go head-to-head with other players at the table, you will be able to play the classic game with a twist in Live Casino Hold'em, which allows you to take on the dealer instead. The rules remain largely the same, however, and the objective is still to build the best possible hand with the active cards.
In poker, the best possible hand you can hold is a Royal Flush. This is achieved if you have a combination of 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace, all with a matching suit. In the table below, you can see all of the available poker hands, ranked from strongest to weakest.
|Best Poker Hands Ranked|
|1||Royal Flush||10, Jack, Queen, King, Ace in an identical suit|
|2||Straight Flush||Five consecutive cards in an identical suit|
|3||Four of a Kind||The same card in all four suits|
|4||Full House||A Pair alongside Three of a Kind|
|5||Flush||Five cards of the same suit|
|6||Straight||Five cards in numerical order, using different suits|
|7||Three of a Kind||The same card in three different suits|
|8||Two Pair||Two different pairs of a card in the same hand|
|9||Pair||Two identical cards|
|10||High Card||If no cards match, the highest ranked card wins, with Ace being high|
