Poker Varieties

Cyberstud Poker
In Cyberstud Poker, you make an ante bet and are dealt a hand of five cards while the dealer is dealt one face-up card. Based on the strength of your hand and the dealer’s card, you must decide wheter to increase your bet or fold. If you call, the dealer is then dealt a further four cards. If the dealer does not have a qualifying hand your bet is returned to you with double your ante.

You pit your wits against the house rather than other players. There is a range of bet sizes, and payouts can be very lucrative on winning hands. Even if you have nothing in your hand and are feeling lucky, you can still call, and if the dealer doesn’t qualify with an ace-king or more, you will still make a profit on your ante.

Fold if you have less than an ace-king. Call if you have a hand with any pair or higher. You will be dealt a pair 42% of the time and you’ll win more by making the call bet. Call if you have at least on ace-king and one of your cards is the same as the dealer’s.

Pai Gow Poker
This combination of the Chinese game of Pai Gow and poker is played with a deck of 52 cards in online casino Ireland. You are dealt a hand of seven cards and have to split them into the best five-card hand and the best two card hand that you can make.

The five-card hand must rank higher the two-card hand, otherwise you have a “foul” hand and must reselect your hand choice. The game is played between players and the dealer. You bet your hands to beat those of the dealer.
In order for you to win, both of your hands must be better than the dealer’s. If you win one hand and the dealer wins one, this is a push, and your money is returned.

Due to a high percentage pushes, this is a great game to make your money last while having a good time!
