How to play Ultimate Texas Hold'Em

Ultimate Texas Hold 'Em features heads-up play against the dealer and the optional Trips side 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. See layout for odds.

Getting Started

Make equal bets in the ante and blind circles. You may also make the Trips bonus 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 1x 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.

Dealer Qualifying

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.
