For those online gamblers that thoroughly enjoy Poker and Texas Hold’em, there is something new in town that hasn’t been seen but in land-based casinos. The new version of Texas Hold’em Poker is everything players are used to with a few new twists. Although this World Poker Tour All-in Hold’em game isn’t yet available in any online casinos, there is hope that maybe one of the more well known online casinos strikes an interest with the new features of the game and wishes to add it into their repertoire.
Regular Texas Hold’em facts
This new version of the game offers some things off the norms to the recurring player. Now among its differences is the fact that regular Texas Hold’em can currently be found online and the new version of Texas Hold’em is offered in traditional casinos only. The positive point of having a game be online is the fact that online games offer free trial play modes where the player can see how it works before going big, this isn’t the situation with the new version since it goes without saying that no land-based casino offers a free play mode to their customers.
Texas Hold’em and betting
Another additional difference between the versions is the betting. In order to be able to participate in the new game, there is a fixed blind bet of $3. This bet then has a raise in the bet that is done just once but must be at least five times the original bet or in other words, $15. So, in reality, the least you can start with the new version of Texas Hold’em is $15. Now the interesting part about the bets in this game is that even the dealer’s cards will be paid off on if they are in a bet. Much like video poker this game also allows the player to make side bets, the amount used is $3 and the payouts are very generous. On the main bet for three of a kind, the House pays 2 to 1, which is okay but for a royal flush, the player gets 500 to 1. When it comes to side bets the hole cards take the upper hand. Jacks or pairs better than that of a jack pay 8 to 1 and aces will get the player a 20 to 1 payoff
