Online Poker Games at BetAmerica Casino

Poker hand

BetAmerica brings you the most popular casino poker games, packed with exciting features that put a modern twist on a classic gambling hall pursuit.

In recent decades, No-Limit Texas Hold’em poker has been popular on TV, a game that evolved from original variants like Stud, Omaha, or Five-Card Draw.

In casinos, however, it’s video poker and Casino Hold’em that everybody enjoys playing. While video poker is rather like a fast-action slot, Casino Hold’em resembles a traditional casino table game.

Both, however, feature the main aim of poker, which is to make the best possible five-card poker hand. Before playing either, it’s worth understanding the so-called poker hand rankings, so you know how one hand beats another.

New to poker? Then check out our tutorial section which offers tips on how to play poker and basic poker strategy.

Poker Hand Rankings

Everybody has heard about a Royal Flush, the best hand in poker, but how many of the other poker hand ranks do you know? Here’s the full list, ranked by strength.

  • Royal Flush – The strongest hand made up of a 10-J-Q-K-A, all the same suit.
  • Straight Flush ­­- Five running cards, all of the same suit, such as 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 of diamonds.
  • Four of a Kind – Four cards of the same rank and one “kicker” card.
  • Full House – Three cards of one rank and two cards of another. For example, three fives and two jacks.
  • Flush – Five cards of the same suit.
  • Straight – Five running cards of any suit.
  • Three of a Kind – Three cards of the same rank and two random cards.
  • Two Pair – Two different pairs.
  • Single Pair One pair.

If all that looks a little overwhelming, there’s no need to worry. Video Poker and Casino Hold’em are both simple to play, meaning you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the action at BetAmerica Casino.

How to Win Our Casino Poker Games

In video poker, you spin the five reels to reveal five cards. Next you get to hold any number of the reels before spinning the remainder for a second time, hoping to make a poker hand good enough for a payout.

Please take a look at our video poker page to see the wide variety of games we offer.

Casino Hold’em is more like a traditional poker game. You and the dealer get two cards each, and you must make the best five-card poker hand from any combination of your two cards and the five ‘community’ cards dealt in the middle of the table.

Your hand must be better than the dealer’s to win. It’s a fast game with increasing payouts if you make a decent hand – such as 100 to 1 for a Royal Flush or 10 to 1 for Four of a Kind.

Live Dealer Casino Hold’em

Live Dealer Casino Hold 'em

If you prefer playing with real cards against a human dealer, play Live Dealer Casino Hold’em. Live dealer games offer a true-to-life casino experience, and multiple players can play behind at the same time.

You even get to chat with the dealer, if you wish to implore him or her to serve up your winning card.

Live dealer games are increasingly popular. Once you’ve tried out Casino Hold’em, why not give live dealer roulette a spin or blackjack?
