Poker is one of the world's most popular card games and indeed one of the most exciting. Despite the many poker games available to the public these days, a touch of originality and dignity is commanded by the Burswood Casino.
At Burswood Casino, there are 125 gaming tables offering games such as Pai Gow Poker, poker games, and Caribbean Stud Poker. 88 tables are located on the main gaming floor and a further 35 are available for members and VIP players in the exclusive International Room.
Carribean Stud Poker
Caribbean Stud Poker originated in the Caribbean and is widely played on cruise ships in that area. It is a colourful, fun and easy-to-play alternative to regular poker games. It is played on a Blackjack style table and the game is based on the five card stud poker game.
At Burswood, poker games, and Caribbean Stud Poker is the first table game to offer players the exciting option of a progressive jackpot payout for Royal Flush and Straight Flush hands. Bonus payouts are also offered for Four of a Kind, Full House and Flush hands.
Pai Gow Poker
Pai Gow Poker is a combination of the ancient Chinese game of Pai Gow and the popular game of Poker. It is played with a traditional deck of 52 playing cards plus one Joker. The Joker can be used to complete a Straight, a Flush or a Straight Flush but in all other cases the Joker will be considered an Ace.
Each player is dealt seven cards which the player then arranges to make two hands: a two card hand and a five card hand.
Rankings are based on basic Poker rankings so the highest two card hand would be two Aces and the highest five card hand five Aces (four Aces plus a Joker). The value of the five card hand must be higher than the value of the two card hand.
Burswood Casino offers two types of poker:
Draw Poker where each of the players' hands are hidden until showdown and Stud Poker where some cards in each player's hand are exposed to all players as betting progresses.
Every poker game at Burswood has a minimum 'buy-in' amount which is displayed along with the table limits on each particular game
Burswood also has a brand new higher limit
gaming venue, The Diamond Lounge, which offers guests the opportunity
to play the games and mingle in style.
