Online poker platform Stretch Network has released 6 and 7-card Omaha games "for broader entertainment with the particular aim to delight poker fans․" The games, added on Monday, are set to add "thrilling new ways to play, bright emotions for players and revenue growth opportunities for operators."
Compared to traditional Omaha played with 4 cards, 6 Card Omaha and 7 Card Omaha introduce more complexity and strategy to the game, explains Stretch Network, part of the BetConstruct group of companies.
Players should now consider 6 or 7 cards and choose the best possible combination of two cards to use with the community cards. The fresh game types guarantee to bring "unforgettable emotions and incredible experiences," says the platform.
The hierarchy of hands in 6 and 7 card Omaha is exactly the same as in Texas Hold'em, from the highest card (the weakest type of hand, not even a pair) to the rare Royal Flush (10-Jack-Queen-King-Ace of the same suit) through three of a kind, straight, and flush, and the like.
The games will be available in Download (OS - Windows, Mac OS), Web (OS - Windows, Mac OS, Linux), Web Mobile (OS - Android, IOS, Windows), and PWA ( OS - Android, IOS) versions.
