Betting and Payout Rules
All-In

If a Player does not have enough chips to bet during a hand, they are not forced to place the full bet amount. However, the Player must put all of their chips into the pot - this is calling All-In. The game play that continues among other Players is put into a side pot. The All-In Player has no share in this pot.

The following rules apply:

  • There is a limit to the number of times that a Player can be All-In through disconnection in a 24-hour period. When this limit is exceeded, the Player's hand folds and any chips the Player contributed to the pot is forfeited.

  • Players must be aware of their All-In status. When a Player reaches the All-In limit, they must request that the limit be reset.

  • All-In's are not allowed for disconnections in Pot-Limit and No-Limit games.


  • Abuse of All-In protection, or suspicion by the House that a Player is purposely disconnecting from the Multi-Player Casino, may result in the following:


  • Players being disqualified and removed from the game.


  • Players forfeiting all buy-in amounts.


  • Players being permanently banned from the Multi-Player Casino.

Note: The House monitors the circumstances and frequency of All-In's.


 
Antes, Bring-ins and Corresponding Limits

For Stud games, the antes, bring-in bets and corresponding bet limits are not increased every few hands.


 
Bet Limits

The following rules apply:

  • Players cannot bet less than the minimum, or more than the maximum amount displayed. For example, in a $10 / $20 game, the minimum bet limit is $10 and the maximum bet limit is $20.


  • Bet limits are determined by the House per game and per table.

 
Bets and Raises

The following rule applies to Fixed-Limit games:

  • The betting is capped at four bets - one bet and three raises, per betting round. When the betting is capped, Players may only call or fold.

The following rule applies to Pot-Limit and No-Limit games:

  • There is no limit to the number of raises per betting round.

 
Blinds and Posts

The following rules apply:

  • In Texas Hold 'em and Omaha blind bets are used to start the game play. The Player to the immediate left of the Dealer posts the small blind. The next Player to the left posts the big blind. The small blind is half of the minimum bet limit. The big blind is a full bet at the minimum bet limit. For example, in a $10 / $20 game, the small blind is $5 and the big blind is $10.


  • When new Players enter a game they are given a choice to post now or wait for the big blind. Players that decide to wait, receive no cards until it is their turn to post the big blind. Players that decide to post, bet the equivalent of one big blind and receive cards immediately.


  • Both the big blind and the post are considered live blinds. This means that Players on the big blind and Players that posted can raise their own blind bets.


  • Players that sit out, miss one or more blinds, and then sit in again, must either wait for the big blind to reach them again before receiving cards, or post both a big blind and a small blind to receive cards immediately.

    Note:
    When posting both blinds, only the big blind portion of the post is live. The small blind portion of the post is placed in the pot. The Player is penalized the equivalent of a small blind.
  • Blinds and Bet Limits are increased every few hands, up to the maximum set for the game.


  • If the Player on the small blind or big blind is eliminated, the dealer-button moves and the blinds skip a Player for that round.


  • When a Player is seated at a cash game and does not have enough chips to post a blind, he can not play the hand. However, if the Player is in a Tournament, the residual chips are automatically posted to the required blind.

 
Buy-in

The following rules apply:

  • There is a minimum buy-in amount for each game.

  • The minimum buy-in for any game is ten times the minimum bet limit. For example, the minimum buy-in in a $3 / $6 game is $3 x 10 = $30.

  • The buy-in amount from all Players in the game is added to the pot.

 
Checking and Raising

Check-raising is permitted in all games.


 
Pot

The following rules apply:

  • The pot accumulates as each Player antes, bets, calls and raises.

  • The pot goes to the winner of the hand.

  • If two or more Players have the same winning hand, they split the pot equally.

  • The House takes a small percentage of the pot. This is known as the rake.

 
Table Stakes

All games are played Table Stakes. This means that if a Player does not have enough chips on the table to complete or call a bet or a raises, the Player may bet or call All-In for the number of chips they have left.

Note:
To begin a hand, a Player must have enough chips remaining to place an ante or a blind bet, and a bet. Calling or betting All-In applies only when the hand is in progress. All-In cannot be used to post a short blind or ante.


 
Ties

If Players tie at the showdown, they split the pot.


 
Game Rules
All Actions Stand

The Player determines the action they want to perform in a game by clicking the appropriate Action button. Once a Player has selected an action, it is final. Players must ensure they select the correct action.

Player Elimination

Players are eliminated from a game when they lose all their chips.


 
Playing at more than one Table

Players may play at more than one table at the same time.

Note:
This is at the discretion of the House.

The following rules apply:

  • The House monitors Players that are playing at more than one table at the same time. This is to ensure that multiple-table play is not causing slow play. If the House determines that slow play is a result of playing at multiple tables, the Player is forced to play at one table only.


  • Players may not allege distraction or confusion as an excuse for errors made when playing at more than one table at the same time. Players are urged to consider the risk involved in playing at multiple tables at the same time. Errors that occur because of multiple-table play are strictly the Player's responsibility.

Showdown Rules
General

  • Any Players who win any part of the pot show their cards automatically.

    Note: Players that have uncontested wins can choose to show or muck their cards.

 
All-In During Showdown

The following additional rules apply when one or more Players are All-In:

  • When there are Players that are all-in during a Showdown, side pots exist. The showdown order starts with the last side pot then the previous, until it gets to the main pot. The Showdown order of play for each pot is clockwise.

  • If there are no more bets or raises until the end of the hand, for example when either there is only one Player left who is not all-in so the hand plays to the end, or all other Players check until the end of the hand, the Player who went all-in must show their cards and do not get the option to muck.

  • If there are more bets or raises by other Players after a Player went all-in and the Player who went all-in does not have a winning hand, the Player who went all-in has the option to muck.

 
Uncalled Bets in Showdown

If the last Player to bet, Player A was all-in, and one of the remaining Players, Player B, bet or raise and all other Players fold, then Player B's bet is returned as no Player called his bet.

Player A is considered the last player to bet, so Player A must show their cards.
