High Five Poker is a table game that SHFL Entertainment originally created and promoted. The goal is to beat the dealer’s five-card poker hand. You’ll notice similarities to Pai Gow Poker in that it uses 53 cards, with the 53rd being a Joker. The lone semiwildcard may be used to complete Straight, Flush or Straight Flush. It can also be used as an Ace.
High Five Poker tables can be found at The Brass Ass Casino in Cripple Creek (CO), which also offers progressive versions.
How High Five Poker Is Played
There are six seats at the table. First, players must place an Ante bet. The dealer will then give seven cards face-down in a clockwise fashion to each player and seven to himself. Each player will then review his or her cards, and make one of these decisions:
Fold the Ante bet and forfeit it.
– Keep the five best poker hands and discard two cards. Make a Play wager equal to the Ante bet.
To determine the best five-card poker hand, the dealer will reveal the house cards. If the dealer has at least two pairs of sixes, or against a player with a straight, the dealer qualifies.
If the dealer has a pair or deuces, player number 1 has straights, and player 2 has a pair or three’s, then the dealer qualifies for player 1, but not player 2. What happens to the payouts if the dealer qualifies?
– The dealer must not be qualified for the Ante bet, which pays just money and pushes the Play bet.
– The dealer must beat the player to qualify.
– The dealer must be beaten by the player to qualify for the Ante and Play Bets.
– 모바일 홀덤 must qualify and tie the player to win the Player’s Ante or Play bets push.
When determining the outcome of any remaining wagers, the dealer works counterclockwise. The house edge is approximately 3.6%
