Live Casino App
21.co.uk currently stands as one of the biggest mobile casinos in the UK industry, and we understand that that accessibility plays an integral role in many of our players’ experiences. So with this in mind, we’ve worked hard to ensure that all of our casino games, including live poker, are fully optimised and ready to play from any mobile, tablet or computer devices whenever you are without having to forgo any of that top HD quality we pride ourselves on presenting. Although our players who opt to use mobile and tablet devices are able to access our online casino through an internet browser, we get that this isn’t always the most user-friendly process; this is why we’ve condensed our collection of casino games and packaged them into a nifty little handheld live casino app, meaning you’ll have access to all of your favourite live casino tables at just a tap of the app. Simply log in using the same details you would use to access the desktop casino and you’re ready to play.
Caribbean Stud Mini Guide
Live Caribbean Stud Poker is a unique take on the traditional and popular game of Poker as we know it. If you fancy changing things up then try this alternative. It's a type of five-card stud, however, all players are against the house. This means it takes out the strategy and 'tells' of your fellow players. This also means faster play and more hands of basic stud poker. The idea of Caribbean Stud Poker is to make the best hand from 5 cards. To begin you must take a seat and place an ante, which is the minimum wager needed to play. From here you have your usual tools or raise and fold. Remember, you're playing against the house, this means you can only raise once - this requires thought.
Ultimate Texas Hold'Em Mini Guide
Ultimate Texas Hold'em is a type of 5-card stud poker. There are plenty of different wagering opportunities and a number of deals. The rules of Texas Hold'em are almost the same, yet some have been modified for players to play against the house. This Live Casino game has been given two bonus bets to add to the gameplay. You can use the Bonus Bet or the Progressive Jumbo 7 Jackpot bet. The latter is hit when the community cards and the player's cards make a seven-card straight flush.
Live Three Card Poker Mini Guide
Three Card Poker requires you to place an ante. Once placed you'll be dealt the three cards. Then you can either fold or place a play wager. The dealer must have at least a queen high to qualify for the hand. You can also play a couple of side bets, which are 'plus pairs' and 'Six-Card Bet'. Plus pairs means you place a bet on whether you will be dealt a pair or better. The Six Card Bet means you have to combine your cards with the dealer's cards to make a five-card poker hand.
