Ultimate Texas Hold’Em

The Game

One of the World’s Most Popular Table Games

Ultimate Texas Hold ‘Em refers to a reinvented variant of the classic poker game Texas hold ’em. In this variation, the player does not compete against other players. Instead, they play only against the dealer. At any point during the course of the hand, the player is free to make one raise. In this poker-based game, the earlier the raise is made, the higher its value is.

The game begins with the player making a blind bet and an ante. They are also provided with an optional Trips side which allows them to acquire a payout whether their hand loses or wins. Ultimate Texas Hold ’em is different from other poker-based games in the sense that the ante still remains in play even after the players made a raise and even if the dealer does not open.

How to Play

How to Play

On the table in front of you, you will see different betting circles:

  • Ante
  • Blinds
  • Play
  • Trips

To play a hand of Ultimate Texas Hold’em you need to make at least 2 bets – the Ante and Blinds bet. The Trips bet is an optional bet you can make which pays out only if you hit certain hands.

The Play bet you can make in different multiples of your original bets at various points in the hand. Here’s how a hand of Ultimate Texas Hold’em works:

  • Each player makes the two mandatory opening bets – an “ante” bet and a “blinds” bet
  • There is also an optional “Trips” bet players can choose before the deal
  • Two cards are then dealt face down to the players and the dealer
  • Once players have checked their cards they can choose to add on a “Play” bet at a value of 3x or 4x the ante bet
  • Players can also check and wait for the next betting round
  • Dealer then deals 3 community cards face up on the table. These are shared between players and dealer
  • If the player checked in the first betting round they can now make a Play bet worth 2x ante or can check again
  • Once you’ve made the Play bet you can’t bet again
  • After players have again bet or checked the dealer deals two more shared community cards in the middle of the table
  • If player has yet to make a Play bet (checked twice) they must now either fold (lose both their ante and blinds bets) or bet 1x ante

Once all the cards have been dealt and all Play bets made the dealer will reveal their hole cards and declare their best 5-card hand.
