Texas Hold'em is the most popular form of poker, and the easiest to learn and play. It is the perfect choice if you want to get started with poker on a mobile casino.
The dealer places a small blind bet (half the usual bet), and the person to the left of the dealer places a big blind bet, which becomes the minimum bet for the table.
The dealer "burns" (gets rid of) the top card on the deck and deals two cards to each player. Players look at their cards at this stage and place a bet.
Players will have to use these two cards with the cards dealt on the table to form their winning hand. The dealer then draws three cards, face up. This is "the flop". Now players will have an idea of whether they have a viable hand or not, but there are still two more cards to be drawn.
Players choose to check (avoid betting), call (match a bet), raise (bet higher), or fold (handover the cards and no longer participate in the round).
The dealer burns the top card and places one card face up next to the flop. Players will again see what hand they hold and choose to bet, call, raise or fold.
The dealer then burns the top card on the deck, and places the last card on the table, known as the "river", and all players will reveal their cards to determine the winner.
Playing poker on a touch screen
When playing poker on a mobile device, the rules are just the same. The main difference is that, instead of a computer mouse, you will use the touch screen to make your choices troughout the game.
You can play poker online from your phone by using both mobile web browsers or casino apps.
