Ultimate Texas Hold’em

OVERVIEW

  • Ultimate Texas Hold’em™ features head-to-head play against the dealer and an optional bonus bet.
  • Players and the dealer each receive two cards. They combine them with five community cards to make their best five-card hand.
  • Ultimate Texas Hold’em lets players bet aggressively. The earlier they bet, the more they can risk—and win. If players bet pre-flop, they may risk 3x or 4x their Ante. If they bet on the flop, they may bet 2x their ante. And if they wait until the river—when all community cards are out—they may only bet 1x their Ante.
  • This game also features an optional Trips Bonus wager. Players win the Trips Bonus if their final five-card hand is three of a kind or higher. Odds printed on layout.

How to play

To play, place a wager in both the Ante and Blind playing areas – these wagers must be of equal value to be valid. You also have the option of placing a Trips wager. If your final five card hand is a three of a kind or higher, you win! You will receive two hole cards and have the option of folding, checking or placing a Play wager of 3 or 4 times your Ante wager. The earlier you bet, the higher you can bet. The dealer will then reveal the three card flop. If you haven’t already made a Play bet, you can fold, check or place a Play wager of 2 times your Ante wager. The dealer will then reveal the final two community cards. If you haven’t already made a Play bet, you can either fold or place a Play wager of equal value to your Ante wager. The dealer will then reveal their hole cards – to qualify to play against you the dealer needs at least a pair.

PAYOUT ODDS ANTE WAGERS

Your Ante wagers will:

  • win when your hand has a higher poker value than the dealers hand; or
  • lose when your hand has a lower poker value than the dealers hand; or
  • push when your hand has an equal poker value to that of the dealer; or
  • push when the dealer hand does not qualify with one pair or higher. If the dealer hand qualifies with One Pair or higher and you have a higher ranking poker hand than the dealer, the dealer shall pay your Ante wager at the odds of 1 to 1 and Play wager at the odds of 1 to 1

BLIND WAGER

Regardless of whether the dealer’s hand qualifies, your Blind wager will:

  • win when your hand has a poker value of a straight or higher and is a higher poker value than the dealer’s hand; or
  • lose when your player hand has a lower poker value than the dealers hand; or
  • push when your hand has a poker value less than a straight but is greater than the dealer’s hand; or
  • push when your hand has a poker value equal to that of the dealers hand. In order for the Blind wager to win, your hand must be of a higher ranking than the dealer’s hand and be at least a straight.

Winning Blind wagers shall be paid at the below odds:
