ULTIMATE TEXAS HOLD'EM
GEGA-0002543
OBJECT OF THE GAME
To beat the player/dealer in a Texas Hold'em Game. Traditional poker rankings apply.
OVERVIEW
Ultimate Texas Hold'em features head-to-head play against the dealer and two optional bonus bets.

Players and the dealer each receive two cards. They combine them with five community cards to make their best five-card hand.

Ultimate Texas Hold'em lets players bet aggressively. The earlier they bet, the more they can risk—and win. If players bet pre-flop, they may risk 3x or 4x their Ante. If they bet on the flop, they may bet 2x their ante. And if they wait until the river—when all community cards are out—they may only bet 1x their Ante.

This game also features two optional bets, the Trips Bonus and Bad Beat Bonus. Players win the Trips Bonus if their final five-card hand is three of a kind or higher, and win the Bad Beat Bonus if either their hand or the player/dealer's hand is beaten with a hand of trips or better.

Ultimate Texas Hold'em is dealt on a "blackjack" style gaming table with eight seats. The game is played with up to seven players, plus a player/dealer

Ultimate Texas Hold'em is played with a standard deck of 52 cards. No Joker is used.
HOW TO PLAY
1. Players must make equal wagers on the Ante and Blind. Players may also make optional wagers on the Trips Bonus and/or the Bad Beat Bonus.
2. Players receive two cards face down.
3. The player/dealer also receives two cards face down.
4. Once players inspect their hole cards, they have an option:
  • Make a Play bet of 3-4 times the amount of their Ante; or
  • Check.
5. The dealer then reveals the first three community cards.
6. Players that have not bet have an option:
  • Make a Play bet of 3-4 times the amount of their Ante; or
  • Check.

8. Players that have not yet bet have an option:
  • Make a Play bet equal to their Ante; or
  • Fold and surrender their Ante and Blind.
9. The dealer then reveals his hole cards and announces his hand.
10. The player/dealer needs a pair to qualify. If the player/dealer does not qualify, he returns the Ante bet of each player that has not folded.
11. The dealer then settles each player's hand against the player/dealer's.
12. If the player wins, the Play and Ante win even money.
13. If the player loses, the Play and Ante lose.
14. Ties push.
15. The Blind pays even money or more (see odds chart) if the player has at least a straight and beats the player/dealer.
16. The Blind bet pushes if the player has less than a straight and beats the player/dealer.
17. The Blind bet loses if the player loses.
18. All bets receive action to the extent that the player/dealer wager covers.
19. The round of play ends when the player/dealer exhausts his bankroll, or when all player wagers receive full action.
