How to play Bermuda Poker

At the beginning of each Bermuda Poker game, players are required to place an initial bet, known as an ante, on the table layout where indicated. All ante wagers must be placed prior to the dealer announcing "No more bets".

Then, each player and the dealer receive 5 cards, face down. The dealer will turn over one of his cards, then push the cards toward the players, after which the players may look at their cards. Players may only look at their own cards, and may not discuss what they have with any other player at the table.

A player has the option to "raise" or "fold". If he chooses to "raise", he must then place a bet which is equal to twice the amount of his ante in the bet box. If he chooses to "fold", he forfeits his ante.

After all the players have made their decisions, the dealer reveals all his hole cards. If the dealer's hand does not have a rank of an Ace-King or higher, the dealer fails to qualify and you win! Your ante and bet will be returned to you together with an additional amount equal to your ante.

  • Example: Your ante is $10. You want to play your hand so you choose "raise". When you "raise", you automatically place an additional bet that is equal to twice your ante, in this case, $20. The dealer fails to qualify. Your $10 ante and $20 bet are returned to you together with an additional $10.

If the dealer's hand qualifies, it is compared to your hand. If the dealer's hand is higher, you will lose both your ante and your bet.

If the dealer's hand is lower, you will receive twice your ante and will be paid out on your bet according to the payout schedule. Payout odds are also shown on the table top next to the betting circle.

If your hand and the dealer's hand tie on rank, whoever has the next highest ranking card is the winner. If there is an absolute tie, you will get all your money back.

Once the game is over, you will have the chance to change your ante and begin again.
