NOVELTY POKER
NOVELTY POKER

Rather than compete with the other players at the table, Novelty poker games pit you against the dealer or a pay table. Some of the rules and pay tables may vary slightly by casino, but each game has its own unique spin on the poker classics.

An icon shows “I”, a heart and four cards, each from a different suit.

I LUV SUITS

Featuring game play based on High Card Flush, I Luv Suits pits the player against the dealer and includes an exciting suite of optional bonus wagers. Be still our beating hearts.

Object of the Game

Win the pot by producing a flush with more cards, or that ranks higher than the dealer’s hand.

The Dealer’s Hand

After the final round of betting, the dealer must have at least a three-card flush containing a nine or higher to qualify.

A trophy is shown with four cards fanning out, each from a different suit.

If the dealer’s hand doesn’t qualify:

The player wins their Ante and all side bets push to the next round.

Three cards are shown to the left and three cards to the right. On the left are the 7 of diamonds, a 7 of spades and a Jack of Diamonds. On the right are the King of Diamonds, a King of Spades and a 3 of clubs.

If the dealer’s hand qualifies:

It is compared to the player’s hand.

  • If the player has a flush with more cards than the dealer their Ante and raise bets pay even money (x1).
  • If the player and dealer have flushes with the same number of cards, but the player’s flush contains higher value cards, bets are pushed to the next round.
  • If the dealer has either the flush with the most cards or the higher-ranking flush, the player loses all bets and the round ends.
