Ultimate Texas Hold'Em
In this poker game you play against the dealer.
With Ultimate Texas Hold ’Em poker, you compete against our dealer with a combination of concealed cards and community cards. You can triple or quadruple your stake even before the first community cards have been uncovered, thus pushing the excitement to the limit. Those of a more cautious disposition can wait for the cards to be turned and are still able to double their stake at most. Alternatively, you can try your luck with the trips bonus wager and/or the Stud Poker Jackpot.
Placing your bet
Place the same amount on ante and blind. Alternatively, you can also bet on the trips bonus wager and/or the Stud Poker Jackpot. You are dealt two cards face down.
Look at your two cards and decide whether you want to check (i.e. stay in the game without betting anything) or bet triple or quadruple your ante stake on play. The dealer now turns over the first three community cards. If you haven’t yet bet on play, you can either check again or bet double your ante stake on play. The dealer then turns over the last two community cards. If you haven’t yet bet on play, you can either bet your ante stake or pass (i.e. you do not participate in the game and your stake is collected). At the end of the round, the dealer turns over their two concealed cards and creates their hand.
Aim of the game
The aim of the game is to create the best possible hand out of seven cards (i.e. two own cards and five community cards). If you have a higher-scoring hand than the dealer, your bet on play and ante will be doubled and paid out. If the dealer wins, all ante, play and blind bets go to the bank. All bets will remain on the table in the event of a draw. The blind will be paid out if your hand wins with at least a straight. Otherwise, the blind will remain on the table. You win the trips wager with three pairs or a better hand. If a Stud Poker Jackpot is won, it will always be paid out, even if the dealer has an equivalent or a better hand.
Qualification of the dealer
In order to qualify, the dealer needs at least one pair. If the dealer is unable to qualify, the ante stake will be returned to you. All other stakes will be dealt with as described above. The payout for trips and blinds are printed on the game table.
Good luck, and have a blast playing Ultimate Texas Hold ’Em poker!
