TEXAS HOLD ‘EM RULES
Ultimate Texas Hold ‘Em Progressive Features Head-Up play against the dealer, an optional trip bonus bet and a progressive bet. 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 of better
Make equal bets in the ante and circle. You may also make the optional 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 or 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 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 1X your ante.
Winning & Losing
The dealer will reveal his two hold cards and announce 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, these 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 at least a pair to qualify. When the dealer doesn’t qualify, he returns your ante. All other bets receive action.
The optional $1 progressive bet wins if you have a full house or better, see paytable for odds. The top award—100% of the jackpot—pay when you have a royal flush in the first five cards. The 5% prize pays when you have a royal flush after seven cards (the community royal flush is comprised only of the 5 community up-cards).
