Ultimate Texas Hold’em Poker
Ultimate Texas Hold’em features head-to-head play against the dealer and an optional bonus bet. Players and the dealer each receive two cards. They combine them with five community cards to make their best five-card hand. If players bet pre-flop, they may risk 3 times or four times their Ante. If players bet on the flop, they may bet 2 times their Ante. And if they wait until the river – when all the community cards are out – they may only bet 1 times their Ante.
Ultimate Texas Hold'em Poker Rules
Ultimate Texas Hold’em features head-to-head play against the dealer and an optional bonus bet. Players and the dealer each receive two cards. They combine them with five community cards to make their best five-card hand. If players bet pre-flop, they may risk 3 times or four times their Ante. If players bet on the flop, they may bet 2 times their Ante. And if they wait until the river — when all the community cards are out — they may only bet 1 times their Ante.
Ultimate Texas Hold’em features an optional bet, the Trips Bonus. Players win the Trips Bonus if their final five-card hand is three of a kind or higher. Odds printed on layout.
HOW TO PLAY:
- To begin the game, players must make equal bets on the Ante and Blind. They may also make a Trips bet.
- Five community cards are spread out face down on the middle of the table.
- The dealer gives each player and himself a set of two starting cards, from left to right.
- Players now have a choice: Check (do nothing) or make a Play bet of 3 times or four times their Ante.
- The dealers then reveals the first three community cards.
- Players that have not yet made a Play bet have a choice: Check or make a Play bet of 2 times their Ante.
- The dealer then reveals the final two community cards (the turn and the river).
- Players that have not yet made a Play bet have a choice: Fold or make a Play bet 1 times their Ante.
- The dealer reveals their two hole cards and announces his five-card hand.
- The dealer needs a pair to qualify. (When a dealer doesn’t qualify, it’s not an automatic win for the player).
When the dealer qualifies:
Working from right to left, the dealer combines each player’s hole cards with the community cards to make the best five-card hand.
- If the player’s hand beats the dealer’s, the Play and Ante bets win even money.
- If the player’s hand loses to the dealer, the Play, Ante and Blinds bets lose.
- When the hands tie, the Play, Ante and Blind bets push.
- The Blind bet wins when the player wins with a straight or higher. (See layout for odds).
- If the player wins with less than a straight the Blind pushes.
- The Trips bet wins if the player has three of a kind or better. (See layout for odds).
When the dealer doesn’t qualify:
- The dealer, working right to left, refunds each player’s Ante bet before looking at any of the player’s hands.
- Then, again working right to left, resolves the action normally as stated above.

The top two percentage pays from the paytable require that at least one card from the player‘s two hole cards make up the royal flush. The Community Royal Flush is comprised only of the 5 community up-cards. All other winning hands can be comprised of any 5 cards, either all community or including the player’s cards. The meter will be reseeded when the 100% award hits. The cost of the reseed has been factored in to the casino‘s mathematical advantage.
To begin each round, players must make their regular game‘s wager. They may optionally place any side bet wagers and the progressive wager. Players must place the progressive wagers on the sensor in front of their betting position. The sensor will light up. Once all players place their bets, the dealer will press “COIN IN” on the keypad. The sensors will then light up, indicating a progressive wager. The dealer will then remove all progressive bets from the table. The dealer then follows house procedures for dealing the regular game.
The dealer reconciles the standard wager, side bet wager, and progressive wagers at the same time. Follow the procedure in the next section for reconciling percentage pays from the progressive meter. Non-lighted sensors void progressive payouts.
