Oasis Poker is a game, played against the Dealer. You have an option to exchange cards before deciding whether to raise or hold.
The Oasis Poker goal is to beat the Dealer’s hand. Both player and Dealer receive five cards at the first deal. All player’s cards are faced-up. One Dealer’s card is also faced-up and can be seen by players. There are no community cards. Before raising a bet, you are able to exchange cards. You might change one or few cards (exchange of all five cards is also optional). Exchange costs money. The person with the highest hand wins the game. The poker hand is standard and consists of player’s own cards. The hands comparison between player and Dealer, for determining winner, is made at the end of the game.
Oasis Poker is played with a standard 52-card deck, mixed after each game. The cards strength goes from highest to lowest in this series: Ace (A), King (K), Queen (Q), Jack (J), 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3 and 2. In some specific cases, the Ace might become the lowest card, less than number 2. All the suits – hearts, spades, diamonds, and clubs – are equal.
Oasis Poker starts with determining Ante bet. You enter the game with this bet. When ready with your Ante bet, push the Deal button to deal the cards. Five face-up cards are dealt to you and five – to the Dealer. Only one Dealer’s card is faced-up, the others are hidden.
After receiving your hand, you should evaluate it and choose the following:
|Four Of a Kind||20:1|
|Three Of a Kind||3:1|
|Ace and King||1:1|
The Poker hand consists of five cards. Each higher category hand beats lower category ones: three cards of one denomination beat two sets of two cards; two sets of two cards beat a set of two cards, etc. If the hands are equal and in the same category, the individual cards set up the winner. If the highest cards in players’ hands are equal, the second highest cards should be compared, and so on. Here is an example: 4♥ 4♠ K♠ 10♦ 8♠ beats 4♣ 4♠ J♠ 8♦ 6♠, because K♠ beats J♠; or 4♥ 4♠ K♠ 10♦ 8♠ beats 4♣ 4♠ K♦ 10♠ 7♠, because 8♠ beats 7♠. The comparison continues until the fifth cards are compared.
Note that sixth and seventh cards are not taken in consideration when determining how high the hand is. Your best hand might consist of only one of your own two cards and four of the community cards, even the best hand of a player might consist only of community cards.
In case of equal individual cards, the hands become equal too. No winner is set in this case and all bets are returned to players.
