Poker is one of the most popular live casino games on the internet with the online casino set, but even old standbys can use a lift, and that's just what BetGames.TV has just done with poker. As an alternative to spice up playing traditional poker, BetGames.TV has created a dealer shuffle service that features 6+ Poker.
What is 6+ Poker?
In 6+ poker, all the cards from the 2s to the 5s are removed from the deck, leaving just 36 cards with which to deal from. So as the game implies, this leaves the lowest possible total of any one card as being a 6 or greater.
Aces are the only exception, as an Ace can serve as a 5, making a 6,7,8,9 straight combination. Or the ace can serve as the traditional high card in the case of an Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10 straight.
In addition, the removal of the lower cards causes the order of the hands. In 6+ poker, a flush will beat a full house, and 3 of a kind beats a straight.
The game itself is changed in 6+ poker, with greater chances of getting a straight, full house and three of a kind, but the really interesting thing is that you are not restricted to betting upon yourself. Instead, you can bet on other players or the dealer, providing a dynamic that is not experienced in traditional hold'em poker.
Play is much faster, and more exciting with the 2 through five cards removed and only playing with a 36 card deck. Play is fast, and bettors feel an intimacy in 6+ poker
that they may have felt missing from traditional Texas Hold'em poker.
It's that feeling of intimacy that BetGames.TV decided to create, which makes online casinos who pay royalties to the company to use their software, longed to create.
Everyone knows that playing poker in real-life with a group of friends is a lot more fun than playing alone, at home via computer online. But the fast pace of 6+ poker, with so many high hands dealt frequently gives customer's that immersive feeling, particularly when hands aren't dragged out the way they often are in traditional poker.
BetGames.TV is a Lithuanian company that has been producing various poker games for online casinos since 2012. They currently have 12 casino games in their arsenal, and the live-stream them all, through the cloud.
Most importantly, their games are approved by all gaming authorities, so there is no need to worry about shady play and results. Dozens of casinos feature their products, and 6+ Poker is simply the latest of their offerings.
