When you are going for poker you of course have to say that Texas Hold ’em is certainly the classic variation of the rules and the one that everyone wants to play, and it is for this reason that you are likely to find it at just about every casino out there, whether it is online or land based, so long as there is no reason preventing them from including it such as local laws. We will look at the version of the game presented by The Art of Games as part of their online instant play suite in order to see how it goes when it is done right.
You will find that there is a really great Texas Hold ’em game in this package, with a table that has a custom layout in order to show you the cards and display it all in a more careful fashion: you will see an elegant spade symbol, of the kind often seen on an ace of spades, as a faded image on the table, and over this is layered the name of the game in a more bold font and colour with a stallion on either side of it leaping away in a spirited and action filled pose. Above the logo you will find spaces for the flop, the turn, and the river to be laid down with the names marked out, and below them you will find four circles which are set to hold your bets for the flop, turn, river, and your ante.
The play environment that you will be able to see is very realistic: you have the holes for drinks in front of you in the table’s edge, as well as a set of chips at the far side which the dealer will draw from in order to pay you when you happen to win. You can also see a small sign which tells you the minimum and maximum bet that you can make in all cases, as well as the shoe next to it which contains the whole deck of cards which is ready to be drawn from and used to deal out the game. You can control the flow and speed of the game yourself with a series of controls at the bottom of the screen, which will tell the game to move on to the next section by dealing out the next set of cards when you are ready.
It can be a whole lot of fun to play Texas Hold ’em in this way, so make sure that you get involved if you are looking at starting to play poker for the very first time as it can teach you all of the ins and outs of the game without the pressure of having other players wait for you to take your move – or worse, watching you as you think! It is certainly worth having a go at this game to see what all of the fuss is about.
