How to Play Live Poker?

Regardless of which variant of Live Poker you play, the basics are the same. To choose your game, visit the Live Casino lobby. Click on your chosen game, and a new window will open with a live feed from the table of your choosing.

You don’t have to place a bet to watch the action. This is helpful if you’re not familiar with the game or just want to watch to get a better feeling for the pace of play.

The biggest difference between Live Poker and Poker with friends or at a club is that here, you’re just trying to beat the dealer and not other players.

Once you’re ready to place a bet, and the current game is over:

  • Place your ante: This is your initial buy-in to play the game. You have to have your bet on the table before the countdown timer reaches zero.
  • Cards are dealt: After the bets are in, the dealer will deal the cards. The specific number of cards depends on which variant you are playing.
  • Call: After the cards are dealt, but before the dealer looks at their cards, you have to decide if you want to fold or double your bet on the Call.

Rules of Live Poker

The objective of Live Poker is to have a better hand than the dealer. The better your hand, the larger the payout.

In Live Poker, the dealer will need to have a qualifying hand for the round to reach its full potential. For example, in Casino Stud Poker, if the dealer doesn’t have at least a K, the player wins a 1:1 on the ante bet, regardless of their cards. In this instance, the Call bet is returned.

If the dealer has the minimum requirements, all payouts are calculated based on the paytable, which you can see in this article’s Odds and Payout section.

Why Play Against a Live Dealer

Live Poker is played with a single 52-card deck. You can watch the dealer change out the deck after each round while the next deck goes into the automatic shuffler. Even though all Poker games in IN use an RNG to guarantee randomness, it still a good feeling to play with real cards and have the ability to chat with the Live Dealer.

Another advantage of playing Live Poker is there are several side bets and even a progressive jackpot that are exclusive to the Live Casino.

For the best casino poker experience, there’s no doubt about it; playing against a Live Dealer is the way to go.

Available Live Poker Tables in India

There are three different Live Poker tables that are open 24/7 at IN. Each one brings a little something different, but the goal for them all is the same, beat the dealer and try and win some real money.

Live Poker Game Overview
Casino Hold’em Like Texas Hold’em, both the player and the dealer receive two cards, and three communal cards, known as the Flop, are placed in the middle of the table. If you didn’t place a Blind Call bet, you’d have to call or fold. If you call, two more cards, the River, are added to the communal cards. The best five-card hand from these cards will be the winner.
The dealer needs at least a pair of 4s to qualify for the hand.
3 Card Brag After placing your ante, you’ll receive three face-up cards. Decide if you want to continue playing, and add a matching Pay bet. Then the dealer will turn over its three cards. Dealers need at least a Q high to qualify for the game. The game also includes two side bets, known as Pair Plus and Poker Plus.
Casino Stud Poker Casino Stud Poker is a straight five-card game of poker. The player receives five cards, all face-up, while the dealer has one card face-up and the rest face-down. If you like your odds of winning after seeing all the face-up cards, place your Call bet, and the dealer will turn over its card. The dealer needs at least K or A high to qualify for the hand.
Casino Stud Poker has a progressive jackpot that you enter to win by placing a $1 chip on the Jackpot bet. It also has a 5+1 side bet.
