Many players say it’s the excitement of the bet and the chaos brought to the table, whereas others take an analytical approach to poker, using the game to hone their skills of “stealthy attack.”

No matter the reason you seek electrifying poker action at Mardi Gras Casino & Resort, we have the game or tournament for you. Kick back at one of our 24 poker tables, grab a drink and enjoy a rousing game — Mardi Gras-style!

Join one of these heart-pounding poker games or tournaments in:

Texas Hold ’em: Limit and No Limit games starting at $3/$6 Limit up to $10/$25 No Limit

  • Pot Limit Omaha: similar to Hold ’em, Omaha poker requires the players to have a decent understanding of how to read the board, winning hand combinations, out counting and odds
  • Omaha Hi-Lo: the Hi-Lo split version of Omaha poker
  • 7-Card Stud: one of the most popular traditional poker games where antes are small and winnings are big
  • Bad Beat Jackpots: even when you lose, you STILL win

Look No Further for an Exciting Game of Texas Hold ’Em

Play classic Texas Hold ’em at Mardi Gras Casino & Resort. Whether you swing by for a quick game or enter one of our famous tournaments, this intoxicating game will keep you on your toes and winning big. The object of Texas Hold ’em is straightforward — create the best 5-card poker hand using any combination of seven cards. Betting begins before the game even kicks off. The player sitting next to the dealer button places a small “blind” bet and the player sitting directly to the left of that player places a large “blind” bet.

Texas Hold ’em rules are simple and easy to follow. Every player receives seven cards: two down and five community cards. Betting begins with the person to the left of the big blind. The 3rd, 4th and 5th cards are dealt face up, which is called the flop. Betting follows the flop, followed by the turn when the 6th card is revealed. Another bet is made before the 7th card, or the river, is turned up called the River. Final bets are placed and a winner is announced.
