Game Description

Side Bet City by Evolution Gaming is one of the most popular and simplest live casino poker games you can play. The action is set in a Las Vegas-type studio whose bright lights and shiny colours create the casino atmosphere of the 1980s. 

Side Bet City is exclusively powered by Evolution Gaming and is a game in which players bet on whether there will be a win on the 3-hand, 5-hand, or 7-hand draw. Alternatively, players can bet on all hands failing to produce a winning combination. 

Also, any combination of these is possible. Side Bet City is perfect for both novice poker players and experienced gamblers who are attracted to the maximum 1000:1 payout available in Side Bet City. 

Environment

The action is set in a studio decorated in a way that immediately transports the players back to 1985 and casino rooms like the ones we used to see in the once-popular TV show Miami Vice. 

The rectangular-shaped poker table is unlike the ones we are used to seeing these days, and the same can be said for the entire environment. The eye-catching blue and purple neon lights, together with two shelves in the background filled with quirky trinkets, like the Route 66 traffic sign and a Viking helmet, produce the vibe of a swanky bar rather than a casino. 

The dealers are highly trained professionals with a friendly disposition and talkative nature, much like in Evolution Gaming’s Dream Catcher or Monopoly Live.

Gameplay/Tutorial

One of the most appealing things about Evolution Gaming’s Side Bet City is how easy it is to play. You don’t need any prior poker knowledge to enjoy it. 

The game is played with a single 52-card deck shuffled after each round. To initiate the game, you need to bet on a win for the 3-card, 5-card or 7-card hand. If you believe neither will produce a winning combo, you can also bet on all-lose. 

All winning combinations are the same as in a regular poker game. Once you place one or multiple bets, you just have to wait and see what the cards bring. It’s that simple. If your bet is successful, a winning message will be displayed on the screen. 

Betting limits range from one casino to another but the game can support bets from €1 to €2,000 per hand. 

Video Description

The video quality of Side Bet City is top-notch and streamed in HD resolution. Players who use desktop computers have the option to choose the video quality based on their bandwidth and opt for medium, high, or HD streaming. 

There are also two camera angles you can switch between, with the classic view being more appropriate for players with insufficient bandwidth. Whenever the dealer starts dealing the cards, a close-up on the cards is displayed so you can keep track of all the action.

There are neither standard nor slow-motion replays of the previous moves, but you can use the bet history to see how you placed your past wagers.

 

Native-Speaking Dealers

Although Evolution Gaming is known for offering games in multiple languages, the dealers of Side Bet City only speak English. 

Mobile/Desktop Interface

Side Bet City is perfectly adaptable to both desktop and mobile devices thanks to HTML5 technology. You can use it on tablets, smartphones, and laptops, regardless of their operating systems. 

When played on smartphones, Side Bet City is available in both landscape and portrait orientations. The game switches automatically between the two when Player Orientation Lock is turned off. On smartphones, only landscape orientation is available.
