Ultimate Texas Hold'em
Ultimate Texas Hold'em® features heads-up play against the dealer, the optional Trips and progressive side bets. This game gives you several advantages:
- The earlier you bet, the more you can bet.
- You don't have to fold until you see all the community cards.
- The Trips bonus pays odds if your final five-card hand is a three-of-a-kind or better.
Make equal bets in the ante and blind circles. You may also make the Trips and progressive bets. 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 3x-4x 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 2x your ante. The dealer then reveals the final two community cards. If you haven't already made a play bet, you have a choice: fold or bet 1 x your ante.
WINNING & LOSING
The dealer then reveals their two hole cards and announces the 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 (see layout for odds). If you beat the dealer with less than a straight, it pushes.
The dealer needs a pair to qualify. When the dealer doesn't qualify, your ante will push and be returned. All other bets placed will receive action.
The progressive bet qualifies you for payouts from the progressive jackpot. See paytable for odds.
