Evolution Gaming has unveiled a new live poker room which allows players to place side bets on poker hands and win or lose without ever having to make a strategic decision of their own. The new room is called Side Bet City, and it has been designed with a 1980’s-style theme in order to transport players back in time – specifically, to the year 1985.
How It Works
Side Bet City is a neon-lit environment and the dealers here wear similarly coloured outfits as they operate the game. Players are able to bet on whether they will win on a 3 Card Hand, a 5 Card Hand or a 7 Card Hand, and there is a fourth betting option called All Lose, which pays out if the player loses all three of those hands.
It should be noted that players are simply betting on the outcome of the hand which is dealt on the table. This means that multiple players are betting on the same set of cards, and not against the dealer or each other. This is also why it is completely unnecessary to make any kind of poker decisions when playing this game – something that makes Side Bet City a satisfying game for anyone, including those who don’t actually have a clue about poker.
For 3 Card Hands, 5 Card Hands and 7 Card Hands, bets are settled according to the strength of winning hands, with the best hand being the Royal Flush. Bets on All Lose are settled at odds of 0.7 to 1.
Fast and Simple, with Big Payouts
‘We are very excited by the potential of Side Bet City because it adds something very different and distinctive to our already wide choice of poker variants,’ said Todd Haushalter, who is Chief Product Officer at Evolution Gaming. ‘Side Bet City is a fast, simple live poker game with big payouts, all wrapped in a 1980s’ theme.
‘We feel the game will attract the widest range of players with the way the game plays out,’ he continued. ‘Players new to poker will love it because it’s an easy and entertaining introduction to the game. More experienced poker players, meanwhile, will also find the game huge fun because it presents a different kind of poker challenge and also because there are big payouts on offer of up to 1000 to 1.’
Take Yourself Down to Side Bet City
Side Bet City is a great live poker game and a great place to go if you’d like the chance of winning up to 1,000 times your stake without having to worry about making any strategic decisions. Watch out for its arrival at your favourite venue that offers Evolution Gaming’s Live Casino titles and have fun!
