receive a 5-card hand, and the Dealer receives a hand with four cards face down and one
card face up. If player's hand contains a poker combination, the combination and
payout odds are displayed along the bottom the dealt cards. If player's hand does not
contain a poker combination "NO HAND" is displayed.
