A new game has arrived at WPT Global that is fast, fun and allows you to win big: Poker Flips.
How to play? It’s very simple: just bet on one of two characters (a Cowboy and a Bull) to see which wins a random hand of Texas Hold’em.
In other words, you’re not actually playing poker, but rather betting on the outcome of the poker hand. Each person has 15 seconds to place bets on the roulette-style table, choosing among a variety of outcomes, from taking Bull or Cowboy to win — or tie — and the ranking of the winning hand. Each betting option offers different odds. Both the Bull and Cowboy’s hands are then shown, along with the flop, turn and river, revealing the winner and, naturally, the rank of the winning hand.
How to play Poker Flips in 3 simple steps
Two cards are dealt face down to both the Cowboy and Bull, along with the flop, turn and river making up the community cards. Then the 15-second clock starts and the Poker Flips action is on you!
You have 15 seconds to choose the total amount you wish to wager. Place your chips in all of the betting areas you select. All betting closes when the 15 second time bank expires.
Once the 15-second time expires, both the Cowboy and Bull’s hands are shown, then the community cards are displayed. The winning hand is featured, the winning bets are shown, and the payouts are shipped to all winning players.
Winning at Poker Flips can take you to the WPT World Championship
Lest you think there aren’t additional poker elements to this new game, there’s a special promotion attached to it, too.
