Play Swap the Flop at PokerStars Casino
Swap the Flop is similar to Heads-Up Hold’em, but with a twist. In Swap the Flop, you compete against the dealer to see who can make the best five-card hand, but with the option to swap the community cards to try to get a better hand.
How to start playing Swap the Flop
Basic rules and betting
Swap the Flop uses a standard, single 52-card deck of cards. Players start by placing a Swap Bet. In addition, the player can also wager on an optional side bet, called a Bonus Bet.
The player is dealt two cards, and the dealer is dealt two cards, face down. Then, three community cards are dealt and the player has the option to play, or they can choose to swap the three community cards. If the player chooses to swap, no other bets can be placed and the swap will also reveal the last two community cards (turn and river). This means there are now five community cards revealed on the board. The player and the dealer use any combination of their two hole cards and the five community cards, to see who has the best hand.
The dealer needs a pair of jacks or better to qualify. If the player beats the dealer’s hand and the dealer doesn’t qualify, the player receives 1:1 on their ante and 1:1 on their bet. The Ante Bet pay table below applies whether the dealer qualifies or not (applies to all hands).
Your Swap Bet will be distributed as 25% ante and 75% bet. Winning bets are paid according to hand value, as shown below.
Ante Bet Pay Table: Make a Flush or better to receive the Ante Bonus regardless of the dealer’s hand.
