Online card games have come a long way since the original game of Krida-Patram. Once depicted on pieces of cloth, cards games have rooted themselves in Indian culture, carrying decades of tradition and culture. Whether it’s on the streets of Jodhpur or a household gathering on the night of Deepawali, millions of Indians habitually play real-money casino poker as a source of entertainment. But recently, there's been a shift with thousands of Indian players starting to play poker online.
Online poker at LeoVegas is very entertaining and offers great opportunities for excitement - combining side bets, ground games and jackpot drops to complete the experience. And that's not all! Playing poker online also means that you can join a tournament, at any time and place - with the tap of a button. But you don't have to take our word for it, you can experience this for yourself at LeoVegas! Take a seat at our round table and assemble the highest 5-card poker hand to walk out a winner with our Indian Live Casino.
By far, the most popular variant of poker is Texas Hold'Em. Typically, a game of Texas Hold'Em Poker is played with a deck of 52 cards. In this game, the dealer kicks off the round by dealing 2 cards to each player. These are known as the Hole Cards. Each player must use their Hole Cards to assemble the strongest 5-card hand using the Community Cards dealt at the centre of the table. Before a new Community Card is dealt, players can decide to: stay in the game by matching their stake, raise their bet or fold to quit the round. All the while, the players at the table have no clue about which cards their opponents are holding, making it very easy for players to bluff in order to get everyone at the table to fold their hand.
While online poker is played on the same principles of Texas Hold'Em, the virtual element of this game makes it impossible for players to bluff their way to a win. In fact, in online poker, there’s no reason to bluff as the game is played against the dealer who cannot fold at any point in the game.
When it comes to poker, you can decide to pit off against fellow players or take on the house in a showdown against the dealer. At LeoVegas, we offer the latter option which means that your main focus throughout the game should be to end the round with a stronger hand than the dealer's. Our poker tables can host an unlimited number of seats but every player at the table is dealt the same hand so there's absolutely no competition going on there.
Poker played against the house has the advantage of not requiring too thorough of knowledge when it comes to in-game strategy. Instead, it allows new players to get a better grasp of the game while letting an element of randomness guide their end result. So if you want to experience the animation of a game of poker without the need to commit yourself to anything too intense, online poker played against the dealer is the way to go!
As we’ve mentioned above, the objective in online poker is for your hand to be better than the one held by the dealer. Below, you can get a better understanding of what classifies a poker hand and how each hand is ranked - lowest to highest.
High Card: In poker, the Ace is also known as a High Card as it holds the highest value amongst the whole deck. Having a single ace in hand qualifies a High Card.
Pair of Cards: Two equally ranked cards count as a Pair of Cards. For example, if you draw two cards which are 8 of spades, you have a Pairs of Cards in hand.
Two Pairs of Cards: If you manage to accumulate two sets of Pair of Cards, then you have Two Pairs of Cards.
Three of a Kind: Look to hold three cards of the same value - irrespective of the suit - to achieve a Three of a Kind.
Straight: Typically, cards are ranked in the following manner: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, Jack, King, Queen, and Ace. A Straight is achieved once you collect five cards in order - irrespective of the suit.
Flush: Like any other cards, in poker: hearts, diamonds, clubs, and spades come into play. Collect five cards of the same suit - irrespective of value - to play a Flush.
Full House: A Full House combines a Pair of Cards with Three of a Kind to achieve a powerful 5-card poker hand.
Four of a Kind: Pairing up four cards with the same value - irrespective of the suit - qualifies a Four of a Kind.
Straight Flush: A Straight Flush calls for a total of five cards of the same suit ranked in order.
Royal Flush: The highest hand value in poker is the Royal Flush which is a hand featuring an Ace, King, Queen, Jack, and Ten of the same suit.
