Oasis Poker Pro (EOL)
This game is End of Life but feel free to read about it here
Oasis Poker Pro makes you play against the house, using the same game rules as Caribbean Stud Poker. This time without any progressive jackpot available, resulting in a higher payout.
Oasis Poker Pro also allows you to exchange up to five cards for a fee. It’s one of the reasons I recommend this Professional Series table game.
Oasis Poker Pro isn’t much different than Caribbean Stud Poker, mainly due to the comparative game rules. And even if you have never played Caribbean Stud Poker yet, or when you’re not familiar with the poker rules, you are still able to play Oasis Poker.
If this concerns you, though, I advise starting with the Oasis Poker Pro Low Limit version, also available at the NetEnt Casinos.
The reason why is because the lowest bet available in this version is 0.10, much more responsible than the minimum bet of 1.00 the standard version offers.
If you want to stick to Oasis Poker Pro, I can recommend you to start with the free version first. This free Oasis Poker game allows you to bet as much as you like, without losing a real penny. Whatever version you decide to play, all of them promise you a truly realistic gaming experience of one of the nicest table games around.
Free poker Pro games
Oasis Poker Pro is part of the Professional Series offers a wide range of table games. The majority of the Netent Casinos offer the complete Professional Series suite, including all three versions of Oasis Poker, but also Blackjack, Baccarat, Roulette (French and European), Punto Banco, Texas Hold’em and Caribbean Stud Poker.
One of the best advantages the NetEnt Casinos offer, is the chance to play all games for free.
You can play the Professional Series for free as well, including Oasis Poker Pro, Oasis Poker Pro Low Limit and Oasis Poker Pro High Limit. Perfect, because it’s the best way to find out if you either like the game. If so, which version will suit you best.
Play them as long as you like, as most NetEnt Casinos allow you to, with or without interruptions. You can simply open the game from the lobby. Simple as that. Except when you decide to play the game for real, you need to register.
Just as most of the standard Pro games, also Oasis Poker Pro is offering you limits 1.00 and 40.00. Perfect for the average players. The moment these bets don’t fit you anymore because you’re getting more advanced, you can easily switch to Oasis Poker Pro High Limit, although I can recommend newbies to start with Oasis Poker Pro Low Limits, as betting options start with 0.10.
Oasis Poker game rules
Derived from the Caribbean Stud Poker game, Oasis Poker Pro the game rules of both games are quite similar. There are some small differences between the games though as Caribbean Stud Poker offers a progressive jackpot, while Oasis Poker Pro isn’t, but in return you’ll receive a way higher payout percentage compared to Caribbean Stud Poker. This difference is giving you a nice choice, while playing the same card game.
At least, almost the same card game, because the biggest difference can be found in one extra feature linked to Oasis Poker Pro, namely the chance to trade your cards.
Up to all 5 cards can be exchanged in any particular hand, making this Netent card game way more exciting to play as it gives you some space for making big, highly valued and paid hand combinations.
Though the regular advice often is to never exchange more than one card, without any exceptions, although the free game version could give you a nice opportunity to experiment on this to become more skilled with this extra exciting poker rule.
Oasis Poker Pro basics
The game isn’t really much different or harder to play than Caribbean Stud or any other poker game offered by the Netent Casinos. First it’s up to you to make an Ante bet, one you feel comfortable playing with, where after five cards are dealt for both, you and the dealer. Yours will all be visible, while the dealer’s cards are dealt face down, except for the first card in line.
Have a good look at the cards you’re having in hands and decode whether you would like to use the opportunity to discard one (or more cards). This all for a fee of course, going up to 3x your Ante when discarding three of your cards. If you discard 2 or 4 cards you’ll pay a fee of 2x the Ante, 1 or 5 cards will cost you only one time your Ante.
So be careful using this extra feature, as this extra isn’t always an advantage. After, you must either call to play the hand, or fold to surrender while losing your bet. If you call, the dealer turns over the remaining four cards. The best 5-card poker hand wins. The dealer has to qualify with Ace and King. Hands of equal value are a tie, while the best 5-card poker hand wins.
