Online casino game developers Microgaming have recently launched their new suite of poker games. At the centre of this full suite is their Hold ’em Poker casino table game offering, which will be followed in the coming months by other titles such as Lucky Showdown.
Poker has its origins in China, Europe and the Middle East. But the table game as we know it today took shape in the US in the early 1800s, when it spread from New Orleans, through its popularity with soldiers in the Civil War, to the Western front. The rest is history.
Microgaming is one of the founding companies of the iGaming industry, developing the first online casino in 1994. They also created the world’s first mobile casino software ten years later in 2004. Their in-house design team lives and breathes iGaming.
The release of Hold ’em Poker table game signals Microgaming’s re-entry into the real-money online poker world, since the demise of their MPN six months ago. It appears that the new release owes much to the popularity of MPN’s “Fish Party” game, a sit-down lottery that had a progressive jackpot. The Hold ’em Poker table game is a peer-to-peer affair whereby three players face off for a winner-takes-all purse.
Microgaming’s Hold ’em is a table game which is played with just one deck of playing cards. The object of the exercise is for players to construct a winning hand at the conclusion of the betting. Optimised to play on all devices (including handhelds), the bet range starts at €/£/$1 and rises to a max of €/£/$300 per player, and with a progressive jackpot of up to €/£/$25,000.
To play this classic casino table game, all you have to do is sign up with a casino offering it, which you can do via your laptop, PC, or handheld. Whatever device you use, you will be treated to Microgaming’s top-quality graphics and features of this online table game.
Once you take your virtual casino table seat, you select the amount you wish to bet on the left of the screen. After the €/£/$25 chip, there is a golden arrow. Click this, and it will reveal more bet values. Once you have chosen your chip, you can place your bet on as many ante-bet options that the table has. When you are fit and ready to play, hit the “deal” button. Don’t worry; there is no timer, so take as long as you like.
The Hold’em game dealer deals each player with two cards – face up, and two cards to the house, face down. Then the first three centre cards are dealt. After revealing the cards, each hand will be offered a call or hold section. Press “Call,” and you double the bet, and it goes into the “Call” section. If you fold, you lose your ante bet and your hand takes no further part.
Next, the Hold’em Poker table game dealer presents the last two “centre” cards and reveals the house’s hand. All hands will then be compared, and whoever wins, their prize money gets automatically added to the player’s account. The game is simple and fast-paced.
