Rapidly becoming the most popular form of poker, Texas Hold'em is the perfect card game for beginners and advanced players alike. A pair, flush, full house or Royal Flush - only the cards will tell!

Texas Hold'em is one of the most popular, exciting varieties of poker in the world, and it would seem that everywhere you look there is yet another TV show, website or magazine article dedicated to this riveting game.


No one knows exactly where or when Texas Hold’em poker was first played. There are some who say that the earliest game played was in Robstown, Texas, in the early 1900s and it first came to Dallas, Texas in 1925. Texas Hold’em was brought to Las Vegas by a group of Texan gamblers and card players. Now the game is played all over the world.

Whatever the theme you choose for your event; from the rough and ready style of a Chicago 1920's Prohibition evening or a Parisian style party, to the refined elegance of a James Bond night or masquerade ball - there is always a place for casino tables and in particular a Texas Hold’em table!
