Good to know
Before playing your first game of Flushes gone wild, you might benefit from learning about certain notions of the game. These helpful tips and basic rules will give you a sense of what to expect before you get to the casino. Once you are at the table, don’t hesitate to ask the dealer any questions you may have. Helping you understand how the game is played is part of their job.
Taking a seat at the table
Flushes gone wild tables can be easily identified by their blue playing surface.
First, find a spot that isn’t already occupied. Although players are allowed to occupy several spots at the table, they must give up a spot for a new player if there are no other available spots. A special marker is used to indicate spots reserved for players who have temporarily left the table. These spots may be used until the absent player returns.
The initial bet
Place your money on the table. Never hand it to the dealer. The dealer will exchange your money for value chips and you may place your bet in the betting spot indicated on the table before the first card is dealt. Initial bets cannot be made, changed or withdrawn after that point.
Using chips purchased at the casino, players must place identical initial and blind bets.
Flushes gone wild is played with a 52-card deck. In decreasing order, the value of the cards is Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3 and 2.
The 2 may be used as a wild card taking the suit that benefits the most the person who holds it. It takes the highest possible value, but not that of a same-suit card that’s already in the person’s hand.
The dealer deals five cards face down at the centre of the table. He then deals five cards face down to each player in turn, and five cards to himself, also face down.
Players may not show their cards or consult with each other. After examining their cards, players may either raise in accordance with the betting table, or fold.
After examining his cards, a player can either raise by adding a bet that is double his initial bet, or fold.
Once all players have acted on their hands, the dealer removes three of the cards from the centre of the table and reveals the two remaining cards, which become the community cards, as well as his own five hole cards.
A player may fold before the dealer reveals that player’s hand. In that event, the cards of the concerned player are not revealed to the other players.
The ranking of Flushes gone wild hands is determined by the number of cards of the same suit.
Winning and losing hands
If the player’s hand has more cards of the same suit than the dealer’s hand does, the player wins.
If the dealer’s hand contains the same number of same-suit cards as the player’s hand does, the hand with the highest-ranked card among same-suit cards wins. If the dealer’s and the player’s highest-ranked card is the same, the next highest-ranked card among same-suit cards will determine the winner, and so forth.
In the event that all of the dealer’s and player’s same-suit cards are of equal value, the hands are deemed identical.
Some games enable you to place additional bets. Ask the dealer about your options.
