TO BEGIN BERMUDA POKER

1.
Place your ante in the betting circle by clicking on the desired chip denomination on the bottom of the screen and then clicking in the middle of the table. Note: To retract a bet right-click the same chips.

2.
Ensure that your bet is greater than the Minimum Bet. Note that the Maximum Bet refers to your initial Ante, and that your total amount bet could exceed the Maximum Bet if you Raise.

LETíS PLAY

1.
Players must decide whether to fold or raise their bet to continue playing. Folding forfeits the hand and your ante is lost. If you decide to bet, click on the raise button on the right of the screen. Your bet, an amount equal to double your ante, will appear on the table.

2.
At this point the dealerís hand is revealed to you, but does it qualify? A dealerís hand must contain at least an Ace-King for the bet to continue otherwise your bet, ante, and winnings equal to the ante are returned to you.

3.
If the dealer has an Ace-King hand or better, then the dealer qualifies and you can compare hands
