How to Play Hi-Lo Game Show
Before you can play the Hi-Lo Live Game Show, you will need to register your account and make a deposit. Once your account is active, head over to the Live Casino Lobby and join the Hi-Lo table. If there is a game in progress, you will need to wait for it to finish before placing your first bet.
There are 10 betting options in Hi-Lo Live, and we'll go through them in greater detail below. Place your chips on the bet of your choice, and when the countdown timer reaches 0, the game will begin.
At the beginning of the game, there is one face-up card on the table. Place your bet, and then the dealer will remove three garbage cards from the shoe. The fourth card is the money card, and its value is shown on the spinning wheel behind the dealer. At the end of the hand, the face-up card and three garbage cards are put back in the shoe, and the money card stays on the table as the new face-up card.
The rules for Hi-Lo are very straightforward. Predict what the next face-up card will be to win.
- The game is played with six decks of cards, which are shuffled after each hand
- The payouts for the higher or lower bets fluctuate, depending on the face-up card
- You can bet a minimum of $0.20 per bet with a table maximum of $1,000
New Zealand players have a full slate of betting options in Hi-Lo Live. The main bets are whether the money card will be higher or lower than the face-up card. There aren't set odds for this bet, as it changes based on the cards on the table. For example, a bet on a low card, when the face-up card is a 4, will have a higher payout than you would get by the lower when the face-up card is a 10.
The bet that has the highest return is called the Snap. To win this, the money card and face-up card must have the same value. A winning bet has a payout of 12.06x.
The other betting options are:
- The card will be black
- The card will be red
- The card will be an Ace
- The card will be an Ace or King
- The card will be Ace, King, Queen, or Jack
- The card will be 9, 8, 7, or 6
- The card will be 5, 4, 3, or 2
Tips to Win at Hi-Lo
There isn't much in the way of strategy when playing Hi-Lo. The cards are shuffled after each hand, so it doesn't help to count cards or track how many high cards or low cards have been pulled from the shoe.
That being said, here are some helpful tips:
- Watch a few hands before playing: If you're new to Hi-Lo, you might find it helpful to watch a few games. After each hand, the winning bets will light up on the betting table. This can help make it easier to visualize the different ways to win.
- Understand the odds: If you're a low-risk player, taking the safe bet is always the smart option. This means betting the high card when the face-up card is a 5 or less and betting the low card when you see a 9.
- Avoid the Snap: The high payouts may be tempting, but the Snap isn't the best play. You'll have much better results in the long term if you play safer bets.
The majority of the bets in Hi-Lo have fixed odds. If you bet on a group of four numbers and win, you'll receive a 2.89x payout. For example, if you bet $5 on a 9, 8, 7, or and win the payout will be $14.45. The biggest payouts are for betting the Snap, with a 12.06x payout, and an Ace, which has an 11.56x payout.
The higher/lower bet has fluctuating odds, depending on the face-up card. For example, if the face-up card is a J, the payouts for a high card bet is 3.85x, and the low card payout is 1.68x. Another example is when a 3 card is showing. The lower bet has an 11.56x, and the higher bet is 1.15x. Lastly, a card that falls in the middle, such as a 7, has a 1.92x higher bet payout and a lower bet payout of 2.31x.
Here are the payouts for all the fixed odds bets.
- Bet on Snap = 12.06x
- Bet on Ace = 11.56x
- Bet on Ace or King = 5.78x
- Bet on 2, 3, 4, or 5 = 2.89x
- Bet on, 7, 8, or 9 = 2.89x
- Bet on red = 1.92x
- Bet on black = 1.92x
