Ultimate Texas Hold’em features heads-up play against the dealer and an optional bonus 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 or better. 

Getting Started
Make equal bets in the Ante and Blind cirlcles. 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 or 4 times your Ante. The dealer then reveals the three-card flop. If you haven’t already made a Pay 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: bet equal to your Ante or fold.


The dealer then reveals his two hole cards and announces his hand. To win even money on your Play and Ante bets, you must beat the dealer’s hand. In the case of 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.
