Wild Seat Poker games are slightly different from typical online poker games in that they only pay out to the winner, who receives a randomly selected prize. This is revealed to each individual player only after they have won, although anyone who has been eliminated from the game is also shown the mystery value that they would have claimed had they managed to go all the way. The maximum payout in this game is an incredible 10,000x your buy-in, so you there is a fantastic opportunity to win an enormous pot.

For any new online poker player, you may feel as though you aren’t experienced enough to compete with those who’ve played on poker sites for a considerable amount of time. If you’re looking to play and not be played yourself, our top tips can help you develop your knowledge and tactics of the classic game:
If you’re a beginner, start small - Play for small amounts if you’re just starting to play online poker for real money, as this gives you additional time to learn and improve your skills.
Pay attention to what the other players are doing - You’ll be able to notice whether their playing style is overly aggressive or slightly reserved, and from that you can begin to calculate the strength of their hand.
Be patient at the table - There is no rush to take control of the chips, and if you are to win you must have the ability to be patient and wait for your opportunities to be more forceful in your play.
Get the maximum value from your cards - If you’re playing in a tournament that doesn’t have a big buy-in, for example, you can be more adventurous with your bets if you have a good hand, because players are more likely to take a risk and call you on them.
Pocket Pairs give you a much greater chance of winning - Statistically, you have an 85% chance of winning a hand if you start with Pocket Aces. This trend is represented throughout the list of cards, so if you are dealt two of any card, you’re in with a shout.
Our online poker games feature Wild Seat Poker, which is an innovative and exciting Texas Hold’em Poker experience, available to be played from just £1. In these games you compete against three other poker players, and a variety of mystery prizes are on offer. These include poker bonuses of double the buy-in value, or even a jackpot which can be a maximum 10,000x the buy-in.
Only the winner will be paid out at the conclusion of the Wild Seat Poker tournaments, with another intriguing twist being that the losers are shown the prize that could’ve been theirs upon exiting the game, therefore giving you even more reason to secure victory.

Cards are dealt starting from the left of the dealer, and you initially receive two cards, which can then be paired with the community cards that are subsequently dealt face up. This starts with the Flop where three cards are added, before the Turn and finally the River, which each sees one card turned. Between each round of cards, you have the opportunity to fold, check or bet.
The minimum value that can secure a winning hand is a High Card, although this is extremely rare, with the most powerful hand being the famous Royal Flush, which requires you to hold a 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace of the same suit. Whoever possesses the most valuable hand at the end of the round wins the pot, unless a scenario occurs where all other players have folded, meaning the only remaining player scoops the amount of money that has been wagered.
