The wombat says: Microgaming have been sprucing up many of their table games of late, and here at Wombat Towers we love what they’ve done with this one!
Triple Pocket Hold’em Poker is a variant of Texas Hold’em (a very popular poker version), and is perfect for poker players who are just getting a feel for the game. Instead of competing against others, you’ll take a seat opposite the dealer to win much as you do when you play our live baccarat game or you settle down for a quick round of blackjack. But don’t worry, there’s still enough strategy to appeal to all seasoned poker players out there, too.
Many of you Wombat Fans might already be familiar with the Triple Pocket Hold’em game. Now, it’s back in Gold form! This means that the game is part of Microgaming’s Gold series, that offers players expanded wagering options. If you want a change from the slots, (and we include the Abracardabra slot which features plenty of cards) then fire this baby up!
It comes with some new and improved slick graphics, making the game more smoother and interactive. What’s not to like?
Look and Feel
Triple Pocket Hold’em Gold poker is played out on a rather elegant green table, just like many of our online blackjack games, which gives this variant a sophisticated casino vibe. However, the main difference between this Gold release and its predecessor is in the graphics. The design uses 3D graphics to make a sleeker and more realistic experience. Gone is the gaudy look and feel!
The aim of the game here is to beat 2 dealer hands from a single 52 card deck. Bets start from as little as £1 and go up to a rather chunky £200 per hand, so there’s something for everyone. Once you’ve chosen your bet, it’s time to click on ‘deal’. Next you’ll be given 2 cards, and you’ll have the choice to hold‘em (in your hand) or pass them back to the dealer. If you choose to deal again, then you’ll be faced with the same option. Pass them on, and they’ll go to the 2nd dealer place. If you opt for a 3rd hand, you are obliged to keep it.
When you’ve decided on your choice of cards, the dealer will then deal you out another 4 cards. When you reveal these cards, the best hand will win (see the payouts below). You really don’t need to have expert poker knowledge to play Triple Pocket Hold ´em Poker Gold, and if you’re new to the world of table games, then this is an excellent place to start. Play your cards right Wombat Fans (said that legend Sir Bruce Forsyth) and you could potentially scoop up odds of 50:1. Not bad!
Oh, and at the end of each game, you can decide whether to Rebet at the same level, Rebet x2 or clear your bet completely and put down a totally new wager.
– Royal Flush – 50:1
– Straight Flush – 20:1
– Four Of A Kind – 10:1
– Full House – 4:1
-Flush – 2:1
