Ultimate Texas Hold’em™

Ultimate Texas Hold’em™ features heads-up play against the Dealer and an optional bonus bet. This game gives you several advantages:

Getting Started

Make equal bets in the Ante and Blind circles. You may also make the optional Trips bonus bet. You will then receive two cards.

Bet Big…or Small…or Not at All

When you get your two hole cards, you can either check or bet 3 to 4 times your Ante. The Dealer then reveals the three-card flop. If you haven’t already made a Play bet, you have a choice: check or bet 2 times your Ante. The Dealer then reveals the final two community cards. If you haven’t already made a play bet, you have a choice to fold or bet 1 times your Ante.

Winning & Losing

The Dealer then reveals his two hole cards and announces his hand. If your hand beats the Dealer’s, your Play and Ante bets win even money. If the Dealer’s hand beats yours, your Play, Ante and Blind wagers lose. If you tie, those bets push. The Blind pays if your winning hand is at least a Straight. If you beat the Dealer with less than a Straight, it pushes. Dealer Qualifying The Dealer needs a pair to qualify. When the Dealer doesn’t qualify, he returns your Ante. All other bets receive action.
