Oasis Poker by Betsoft
Oasis Poker by Betsoft is a free electronic version of Caribbean Stud Poker. The game is played against a virtual dealer, there are 3 areas where you can place bets and the highest payout is for the Royal Flush.
How to Play Oasis Poker
To start the game in Oasis Poker, the first action you need to take is to place your initial bet. In order to do this, pick the desired value for a chip in the lower left corner of the screen and click on the Ante section of the game screen. You can bet a maximum of 100 virtual units and the minimum of 1. Click on the Deal button to start the round and you will be dealt 5 cards.
You then face the choice of whether to stop the game, to continue or to change the cards. The latter option is recommended if you are close to producing a good hand. All you do is click on the cards that need to be replaced and then click on the Draw button. But keep in mind that you pay for the replacement by placing an additional bet that will not be returned:
- 1 card = 1 Ante bet
- 2 cards = 2 Ante bets
- 3 cards = 3 Ante bets
- 4 cards = 2 Ante bets
- 5 cards = 1 Ante bet + Call
When you do not see any further possibilities that your hand could provide, you can stop the game by clicking on the Fold button, although you will lose your Ante bet. However, if your hand turned out to be successful, you can continue the game by clicking on the Call button. This is when you place an additional bet that is double the size of the Ante. Once you hit the Call button the dealer's cards will be displayed.
The dealer has to get a King and an Ace or any combination from the paytable so that the dealer's combination could be counted when the hands are compared. If this does not happen, you will only get your doubled Ante bet and the chips for the Call will go back to the balance. When the dealer's cards form one of the combinations, your hands will be compared and if your hand is stronger, you will double your Ante bet and your bet for the Call will increase in accordance with the paytable. Otherwise you will lose all of your bets. Read more details about poker rules and find more online poker games for free at NeonSlots.
