Live poker has long been a staple of online casinos, and 666 Casino is no different.
On our site, you can find a great range of online poker games that use a live dealer rather than a Random Number Generator (RNG). We have many of the popular poker variations, including Caribbean Stud and Texas Hold’em.

Live dealer poker is the halfway point between online poker and in-person poker. It can be best described as similar to playing at a real table, but remotely.
How it works is that a real dealer is in a studio standing at a real table, they shuffle and deal the cards as they would in a brick-and-mortar casino, except they do it in front of a camera. The footage is live-streamed.
After choosing a live poker game to play, you join the stream and see the dealer in real-time. You then use the interface on your device’s screen to place your bets and make any decisions in the course of the round. The dealer has a display that shows this information so they can respond accordingly.
Of course, when it comes to how to play poker itself, it depends on the variation you’re playing.
666 Casino is the place to be for the best live poker games. Head over to the ‘Live Casino’ section of our site and scroll down to the ‘Poker’ carousel to see our selection.
We have some amazing live poker games, such as Three Card Poker, Side Bet City, Texas Hold’em Bonus and Ultimate Texas Hold’em.
Let’s take a closer look at two of the most popular poker variations that are available to play on our site.
You can find live 3 card poker on our site. This variation is played against the dealer rather than against other players.
The aim is to have a better poker hand than the dealer with only 3 cards.
To start, you need to place an ante wager. You can also place an optional side bet called ‘pair plus’ before the round starts; this is a bet on you having a poker hand of a pair or better.
The dealer draws cards and deals 3 face-down cards to all players and themselves. You then look at your hand and decide if you want to play it or not. If you do not wish to play your hand, you can fold, and the dealer takes your ante wager. They also claim your pair plus bet if you placed one.
If you do wish to play your hand, then you need to place a play wager that is equal to the ante wager in amount.
The cards are then turned over. The dealer only plays if they have a hand of Queen-high or better. If they don’t, the play wager is returned to you. If they do, then the cards are compared to see who has the better hand.
If you have a better hand than the dealer, you win and receive a payout on your ante wager and play wager at even money (1:1). However, if the dealer has the better hand, then they collect your ante wager and play wager.
The pair plus is decided separately; it is not concerned with who won. If you have a hand of pairs or better, then you win this side bet and receive a payout.
No self-respecting online casino can offer live poker games and not include the most popular poker variation: Texas Hold’em. Fortunately, you can find it here at 666 Casino.
In Texas Hold’em, the aim is to make the best 5-card poker hand possible using your hole cards and the community cards.
The community cards are placed in the middle of the table throughout the game, and the hole cards are the two cards the players receive at the beginning of the game.
The rounds consist of each player calling (matching) or raising the current bet to keep playing, or they can fold, which means dropping out of the game.
The first round of betting is called the ‘pre-flop’ and is played based on only the hole cards. After this round, 3 community cards are placed, and this round is known as the ‘flop’. After this round comes the ‘turn’ where an additional community card is placed. The final community card is then drawn – this is the ‘river’.
Finally, the showdown occurs. All players still in the game show their hole cards to see who makes the best 5-card poker hand, thus becoming the winner. It’s also possible to win earlier than this by being the last player left in the game if the rest of the players fold.
Our players can also experience mobile live poker at our site too.
In order to play on mobile devices, you simply need to follow the same steps as you would on any other device. Go to the web browser and head to 666 Casino. Then, log in to your account or create one if you don’t yet have one. Finally, locate a live poker game and load it up.
The display adapts to smaller screens for the same seamless experience no matter what device you prefer to play on.
The fact that both are played online can lead to some confusion and many wondering about the difference between online poker vs live poker, so we’re here to clear things up.
Online poker refers to poker games that operate using a Random Number Generator (RNG). The RNG uses a complex algorithm to produce random and unpredictable outcomes. This essentially acts as the dealer shuffling and dealing cards so that hands are random.
Live poker is played with a real dealer that is manually operating the game; they are responsible for shuffling and dealing the cards. This is done via live stream, with players watching the feed and using the interface on their screens in order to place bets and make any decisions.
Those looking to play poker online for real money need look no further. All of our poker games are real money poker games.
666 Casino is fully licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC), so our players know they are with a secure and trustworthy online casino. The UKGC doesn’t allow any demo modes or any sort of free-play options, so neither do we.
You can only play real money poker online at 666 Casino. So, you place bets using your own funds; however, you could potentially win real money through our poker games too.
