Get out your scrunchies and your single gloves! Evolution Gaming is taking you back to the 80s with their latest offering, Side Bet City.

Royal Panda live casinoDesigned to reflect a Las Vegas poker room from 1985, the new game is streamed from a studio filled with electric colours and neon lights.

Side Bet City is more than just a new set, though. It also features a simple poker variant that is ideal for new live casino players, but offers enough action to keep more experienced players interested.

Players bet on whether they can win on a three card, a five card, a seven card hand, “all lose,” or any combination. Winning hands are determined using standard poker rules, and if a player’s bet wins a notification flashes onto the screen.

Other than placing a bet, no actions are required from players. An unlimited number of players can take part, so the Side Bet City table will never run out of seats.

Evolution Gaming’s Chief Product Officer Todd Haushalter said in a written statement:

“We are very excited by the potential of Side Bet City because it adds something very different and distinctive to our already wide choice of poker variants. Side Bet City is a fast, simple live poker game with big payouts, all wrapped in a 1980s’ theme.

“We feel the game will attract the widest range of players with the way the game plays out. Players new to poker will love it because it’s an easy and entertaining introduction to the game. More experienced poker players, meanwhile, will also find the game huge fun because it presents a different kind of poker challenge and also because there are big payouts on offer of up to 1000 to 1.”

Side Bet City will is already available via casinos that carry Evolution live casino games. Not every online casino has access to every Evolution table, however, so you may have to look around to find it.
