Tequila Poker Gambling Game

Tequila Poker is a game that combines elements of five-card poker and Blackjack. You are dealt four cards, and then have to choose whether you would like to go for a poker hand or a point total hand. You are then dealt another two cards. The five best cards out of six make up your final hand.

Tequila Poker is played with a single 52-card deck. All cards are dealt face up.

To play the game:

  • Place your bet by clicking the chips or on the Ante position on the table. Every click increases your bet by the value of the selected chip, and every right-click decreases the bet. You can also click Clear bets to remove all chips from the table and start over.
  • The minimum and maximum Ante bet limits are dependent on your VIP level and are shown on the table.
  • Click the Deal button.
  • Four cards will be dealt, and the point total of these cards will be displayed to the left of them. Now you must choose whether to play High Tequila, Tequila Poker, or to fold. If you choose to play, a second (main) bet will be placed, equal to your Ante bet. If you choose to fold, you will only lose your Ante bet.
  • If you chose to play, two more cards will be dealt. The cards will then be rearranged so that the first five cards make up your best hand. Please note: in High Tequila, your lowest card is disregarded and the point total is made up of your 5 highest cards.
  • If your best five cards make up a winning hand, you win even money on the Ante bet; and your main bet pays according to the respective paytable on the left or right of the screen. If you do not have a winning hand, you lose your bets and the round is over.
  • If you want to play another round, press New Game. Then place your bets as described above and click the Deal button, or click Rebet to place the same bets as in the previous round.

High Tequila:

In High Tequila, card points are the same as in Blackjack: face value for number cards, 10 for picture cards. The Ace is always counted as 11. The lowest card is disregarded, and the rest of the cards must make up a point total of 46 or more to win.

If you get a winning hand, your Ante bet pays even money, and your main bet pays according to the paytable on the left of the screen.

Tequila Poker

In Tequila Poker, your cards are used to make up the best possible five-card poker hand automatically. The remaining card is disregarded. You will need at least a pair of Aces to win. Please note that if the first four cards already make up a winning hand (for example, Two Pair or Three of a Kind), the name of the hand will be displayed below the cards.

If you get a winning hand, your Ante bet pays even money, and your main bet pays according to the paytable on the right of the screen.
