Texas Holdem

Texas HoldemThis is one of Casino Classic's easiest poker games to learn, with millions of people playing every day and turning average people into superstars!

Basically, players receive two cards each and are able to use five community cards to create the best poker hand. If you're new to Texas Holdem one of the key decisions that you will make is which two starting cards to play.

The general rule when playing Texas Holdem is to play with Premium Hands. What is a Premium Hand? A Premium Hand is recognised as being the premium starting hand a player can be dealt to maximize their chance of winning.

The hand rankings and levels are as follows:

Level One
Level Two
Level Three
99 KT's QJs KJs ATs AQ
Level Four
A8s KQ 88 QTs A9s AT AJ JTs

Hands that are smaller than the cards above should be tossed as they will cost you money in the long run.


Jacks or Better

Jacks or BetterThis is the classic video poker game and regular favourite at Casino Classic. If you're a new player, try your luck on Jacks or Better first until you get the hang of how to play video poker online. This game follows the basic rules of video poker whereby the player is dealt five cards and must choose what to keep and what to discard. The next hand is then drawn and the payout is evaluated. The game is played with a standard deck of 52 cards and payouts of 5 coins begin with a pair of Jacks, with the highest payout reaching 4,000 coins for a Royal Flush. If the player wins a hand they get the choice of ‘doubling' their payout if they can beat the dealer by choosing a higher card from the set of five laid out on the table.


Double Double Bonus Poker

Double Double Bonus PokerThis game follows the same principles of the regular video poker game but with the added excitement of extra payouts on particular hands. With two additional paylines added to this game it's even more important for players to check the payout table and know what they're aiming for! There are no Wild cards but players can reach a whopping payout of 2,000 coins for four Aces plus a fifth card from 2s to 4s.
