Ultimate Texas Holdem

The ultimate casino and party game. Players in a game of poker must make equal bets as the Ante and Blind circles, as well as the option of the Trips bonus bet. Players are then dealt two hole cards, which they can check, or bet four times their Ante. At this stage the dealer must reveal The Flop - the three cards. Players can now check or bet two times their Ante. The dealer now reveals the final two cards, and for the players that did not already bet, then can fold or bet again.

The dealers hole cards are revealed and the hands announced. If the player’s hand beats the dealer's, their Play and Ante bets win even money. If the dealer’s hand beats the player, the player’s wagers lose. If players tie the dealer’s hand, their bets push. The Blind bet pays if the player’s winning hand is at least a straight or better, but if players beat the dealer with less than a straight or better, it pushes. 

The dealer needs at least a pair to qualify. If the dealer doesn’t qualify, he returns the player’s Ante and all other bets receive action. 

Three Card Poker

Three card poker allows poker players to bet on the value of their three-card hand, against the dealer, or bet both.

To play against the dealer, players make an Ante wager, and after checking a hand a player they may fold or place an equal play wager to remain in gameplay. If a player’s hand beats the dealer’s qualifying hand of a Queen-high or better, they win both wagers. If the dealer doesn’t qualify, players win the Ante wager and their Play wager pushes.

To play their hand value only, players must make Pair Plus wager which wins if their hand includes a pair or better. To play both the Ante and Pair Plus, players must make a Play wager if they have placed the Ante, or they forfeit the Ante.

With premium hands of a straight or higher, players win an Ante Bonus payout even if the dealer doesn’t qualify, or even if they lose to the dealer.
