Texas Hold’em first came to Las Vegas in 1967 from a group of Texan gamblers and card players. Originally the game was only played in the Golden Nugget Casino, located on Fremont Street, for the first few years. It is now easily the most popular form of poker in the world and is widely available to play on the internet, in your local casino or even in your local pub! Texas Hold’em poker games also regularly appear on the television in many different countries.
The aim of Texas Hold’em is to make the best five card hand out of the seven cards available to you.
