Poker Royale

 

Poker Royale, the game of Kings (and Queens), brought to you exclusively by William Hill.

 

INTRODUCTION

Welcome to Poker Royale, the game of Kings (and Queens) brought to you exclusively by William Hill. The game is played with a standard deck of 52 cards. At the start of the game, you will be dealt 5 cards and you can choose whether to hold any or all of them in order to achieve the best hand on the draw (ie. the second round of cards you are dealt). Any cards you do not hold will be discarded and replaced by new cards from the pack when you click the 'Draw' button. If after the draw you have one of the poker hands shown in the award table on screen (two pairs or better), you will win the appropriate prize for that hand. Watch out for the Royale enhancements which can turn losing hands into winning ones and multiply any win by up to x5.

Step 1: Getting StartedBack to Top

 

  • Choose your stake by pressing the Stake + and - buttons to the right of the stake panel. Your stake must be placed at the start of the game and cannot be changed once you have chosen to DEAL.

Step 2: Deal and Holding CardsBack to Top

  • Press 'Deal' to start the game.
  • Your first 5 cards will be dealt.
  • To hold any (or all) of the cards in order to improve your chance of getting a winning hand on the draw, click on the cards so that the 'HOLD' banner appears.
  • If you have switched on the 'Auto Hold' feature, any cards that make up a winning hand will already be held for you according to our suggested strategy.
  • You can release them by clicking the cards again so that the 'HOLD' banner disappears.
  • The 'Auto Hold' feature is switched on by default when you start the game. If you prefer to switch it off, press the 'Auto Hold On' button.
  • Once the cards have been dealt, the Auto Hold button is inactive until the next game.

Step 3: The Draw

  • When you have selected the cards you wish to hold, press 'Draw' to continue the game.
  • All cards that were not held will be discarded, and new cards will be dealt from the pack to replace them. The discarded cards are not shuffled back into the pack until you finish the game and press 'Deal' for the next game.
  • A winning hand is one that matches a hand shown on the award table (ie. two pairs or better).
  • If you have a winning hand, your win will be highlighted on the award table. You will have the option to deal again or enter the gamble game, and the 'Gamble' button will flash. Your winnings will be automatically added to your account balance.
  • If a losing hand is dealt, the game is over and the 'Deal' button will flash, indicating that you can play again. The stake will stay the same as on the previous game unless you change it.

Royale Enhancements

  • During any game if any Royals are dealt there is a chance that their Royale enhancement could be triggered at random.
  • Each of these has their own unique enhancement:
  • Jack - The Jack will be holding a magic feather. He will then use the feather to change any card(s) in view to create a winning hand.
  • Queen - The Queen will be holding a magic flower. If she blows the flower petals onto any other card(s) in view, these cards will then be re-held, guaranteeing you a winning hand.
  • King - After any win has been awarded, if a King is part of the winning hand (for example 3 Kings) there is a chance he will raise his sword to reveal a win multiplier from x2-x5 (The King can multiply any win except Royal Flush).
