First, click on the chips at the lower left of the screen to place an ante. To remove chips from the ante, right click on the chips on the table.
Progressive Jackpot Side Bet:
You also have the option to make the progressive jackpot side bet – click on the coin slit above the Ante field on card table. The blinking light above the slit turns green. It costs €1, out of which a certain percentage goes to the progressive jackpot pool. If you get a flush or higher, you win a certain percentage of the jackpot (see the winnings table below). Current size of the jackpot is shown on the left side of the table.
To queue chips, click on the coin slit several times. Each click stores one €1 chip. Every time you start a new game round, one €1 chip is taken from the queue for the progressive jackpot side bet. You can queue up to ten chips.
Now click on Deal to deal the cards. You will be dealt a five-card hand, face up. No additional cards will be dealt for the duration of this game round.
Decide wheather to stay in or fold. If you fold (click on Fold button), you will lose your ante and this game round is over for you.
If you stay (click on Call), you add double the amount of your ante to the bet.
Now the dealer’s cards are flipped over so eveyone can see them. If the dealer’s hand does not include an Ace/King combination or higher, the dealer does not qualify. You win even money (1 to 1) on the ante and the additional bet is returned.
If the dealer’s hand includes a combination that is higher than yours, you lose both the ante and the additional bet.
If the dealer’s hand contains an Ace/King or higher, but your hand is higher, you win even money on the ante and the additional bet pays according to the winnings table.
Clear your bet on the table.
Tell the dealer you are ready to deal cards. In multiplayer mode, you might have to wait until other players have placed their bets before the cards are dealt.

If you feel your hand is not strong enough and you want to fold, click this.
