Evolution Gaming have created yet another uniquely imaginative live dealer casino game that should provide hours of entertainment. Side Bet City is a fast and feature-packed poker variant that exchanges the complicated strategies and betting procedures of regular poker for a game that’s simple to pick up and play.
About Side Bet City
In Side Bet City there are simply straightforward bets to be made on just seven cards to bring the prospect of spectacular cash prizes of up to 1000 times your stake.
Streamed live to your device, the studio set captures the colourful vibrancy of a real live casino environment, with a cool retro style designed to takes us back to 1985, when UK online casino brands hadn't even been thought of. Some players will adore the pink and turquoise neon strip lights that edge both the table and bar-style shelving that's filled with a varied assortment of memorabilia which is supported by a fantastic team of professional dealers and brilliant payout potential, making it one of the top casino card games in our collection.
Even the dealers' outfits of tee-shirts with jackets or lop-sided, single-sleeved tops might bring back a memory or two. Side Bet City is immensely enjoyable for players of all skill levels and it's available 24/7 on your mobile, tablet and desktop.
How to Play Side Bet City
A regular feature of Evolution Gaming's titles is the easy to use screen display. You can alter your settings for screen size, camera angles and audio in the top right corner.
At the bottom left of the game interface, you can check your balance and keep track of your bets. In the same area, there is a facility for engaging in a chat with the dealer. The panel at the bottom of the screen is where you place your bets by simply clicking on the appropriate number of cards. There are four bets in total and they couldn't be easier to understand.
You simply choose whether to place a wager on three, five or seven cards. A fourth bet is Lose All which awards a win if there isn't a winning combination at any stage of the dealt cards. You are even allowed to bet on multiple combinations. Only one deck of cards is in play and it is shuffled by the dealer after every round has been completed.
To add to the fast-paced atmosphere there is a fifteen-second deadline for placing your bets. The dealer then begins to deal seven cards on the table but pauses after three and five cards have been placed. This allows for any wins according to the usual poker combinations. If you placed a winning bet as each stage continues you are alerted on-screen about your success.
Side Bet City Rules and Stats
Typical bets range from a minimum of 0.50 to a maximum of 100 coins. The RTP (Return To Player) varies between 94.34% and 96.69% depending on the type of bets you have placed but there are several lucrative payouts to enjoy.
Side Bet City uses poker combinations such as Pairs, Three of a Kind, Full House and Straight. The on-screen paytable displays the odds for each in three bands to correspond with the three, five and seven-card results. The highest payout is on a Royal Flush at a generous 1000/1.
Special Features in Side Bet City
The All Lose bet becomes a winning formula if there hasn't been a positive result from the three, five or seven-card hands. It enables you to safeguard against any losses you might incur when wagering on the other three bets.
Even though the winning hands use traditional poker combinations, you don't need to worry about being the smartest poker player around to enjoy playing Side Bet City.
