Over the years, online live casino at Paddy Power has continued to develop, and become one of the most popular ways to play. Although the classic games-gone-live have their own natural appeal, it’s the more original live games that are the most interesting, bringing a new way to play into the world of modern casino. Read on to discover your new favorite live-action casino games!
Live 3 Card Brag
The traditional version of the game is sometimes known as three-card poker, a shorter version of the otherwise slightly longer classic. The three-card game is thought to have originated in 16th century Britain, where it’s believed to have been the forerunner of the bluffing games that we are now so familiar with. Live 3 Card Brag brings together the brick-and-mortar experience, whilst playing from the comfort of your own home, all the while playing for those big wins!
To get started, all you have to do is stake a minimum of 0.50 coins to your very own live dealer. As this is a single deck game, the cards are shuffled, dealt, and then replaced – this ensures that the game is 100% fair every time you place a bet. It also allows you to create a wide range of different hands in the game, as listed below:
A High Card – a card of high value;
A Pair – two of the cards of equal ranks;
A Flush – three cards of the same suit;
A Run – three cards in a consecutive order e.g. 2,3,4;
A Running Flush – three cards in a consecutive order and of the same suit;
A Prial – three identical cards.
Live Spin a Win
Taking inspiration from the classic American television gameshow – Wheel of Fortune – this game is packed full of tension and excitement, just like the original version!
To get the wheel spinning, simply place a bet worth as little as 0.10 coins and watch the game commence. For the high-rollers amongst you, you may increase your initial bet to as much as 5,000 coins, depending what you are comfortable with. Next, you select a colour from the wide selection, having placed your stake on your chosen symbols. There are nine options in total, as listed below, along with their prizes:
Yellow – 7x your bet;
Blue – 14x your original stake;
Green – 35x your initial wager;
Purple – 70x your original bet;
Orange – 20x your initial stake;
Red – 40x your first wager;
Black (even) – 1.25x your bet;
Black (odd) – 0.75x your original wager;
Black (Multiplier) – 25x your first stake.
The beauty of this Live Spin a Win is the versatility of the game, as there are many ways you can place your bets – of which you can do as many, or as little, as you wish. Also, players have the ability to bet with high risk or low risk, as well as betting in various combinations. Each option will have a greater or lesser chance of spinning in, because of the frequency in which it occurs on the wheel. For example, it is more likely for the yellow section to come up than the red, so the red section has a higher winning value, if you are lucky enough to select it.
