Unlocking your wallet:

  1. To access your wallet and/or complete any transactions on MyEtherWallet, you’ll need to unlock your wallet first.

To bring transparency to CoinPoker, we introduced decentralized card shuffling software (also known as a random number generator or RNG). Unlike RNGs on traditional poker platforms, the decentralized card shuffler uses input from all players at the table to shuffle the deck in a way that is verifiably fair.

How CoinPoker's decentralized RNG works

For more details about our decentralized RNG click here. There is also a 1,000,000 CHP Bug Bounty available to anyone who can prove the software wrong. For more information about the Bug Bounty terms and conditions click here.

Yes, simply select the BTC option under the Withdraw tab in the app. You can also withdraw in ETH or CHP, which we recommend if you’re looking for a fast cash out. Learn more about BTC withdrawals here.
Other useful guides

In terms of gameplay, Short Deck Poker is played just like traditional Hold'Em games. Players check, bet, raise or fold on each street, and there are 5 community cards on the table. There are, however, 3 key elements that make this game unique:

I. The deck contains 36 cards instead of 52, with cards 2 to 5 removed

II. The hand rankings change to the following:

  • Royal Flush
  • Straight Flush
  • Quads
  • * Flush
  • Full House
  • Three of a Kind
  • Straight*
  • Two Pairs
  • One Pair
  • High Card

III. Despite the lack of cards 2-5, you can still make a low straight with an Ace (i.e. A6789).

You can find Short Deck Poker tables in the CoinPoker lobby.

If you are already familiar with Pot-Limit Omaha rules, then the only difference in this variation is that you get one more hole card (so 5 instead of 4). For more details on how to play click here.

To play 5-Card Omaha on CoinPoker simple over to the lobby and make sure you have cash games selected. Once you’re there you will be able to find a range of 5-Card Omaha games with limits to suit just about any bankroll.
