Online poker is one of the biggest factors behind the growth of Bitcoin casino table games and card games. Taking advantage of this, Evolution Gaming released a new live poker room, Side Bet City, to keep the poker boom alive and to extend their line-up of online live dealer poker variants.
Evolution Gaming’s very-own Chief Product Officer, Todd Haushalter, led the announcement of the new fiat and Bitcoin poker room. In a press release, he commented: “The poker room displays a beautiful Las Vegas vibe…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. Side Bet City is a fast, simple live poker game with big payouts, all wrapped in a 1980s’ theme.”
Mechanics and Themes
Side Bet City displays a poker room combined with the classic Las Vegas vibe, transporting the players back to the sin city in 1985. The main game’s backdrop features the authentic atmosphere of Sin City—all enhanced by neon lights and brightly-colored graphics.
The game is true to the Las Vegas atmosphere, so it offers a fast-paced poker experience for online gamblers. Each poker table can accommodate an unlimited number of players. The players compete against the in-game’s pay table, not the dealer. This makes it easier for players to stand out from similar poker chances and get more winning combinations.
The dealer deals seven cards on one deck. Players have four betting options to lay down: 3 Card Hand, 5 Card Hand, 7 Card Hand, and All Lose Wager. These bets can be placed on any combination, and players are not required to make more complex decisions after they placed their initial bets.
Bonus and Reward Features
The gameplay of Side Bet City is simple and straightforward, but the bonuses and rewards are lucrative— a charming contrast. The game offers huge payouts for big combinations. These winning combinations are solely be based on the traditional poker hands. If one player wins the game, there will be a pop-out message on the screen informing them of the prize. Lucky players can receive payouts on offer of up to 1,000 to 1.
