The Classic Game Reinvented
Powered by Evolution Gaming, this exciting online casino game is an adapted version of the classic Texas Hold’em Poker where players get to face off against the dealer instead of the other players around the table. As with all live games, each table has a player limit and there are multiple tables to accommodate both novices and high rollers.
Getting started online is quick and easy, simply head to the live dealer section click or tap on the game you want to play and start playing.
Aside from the fact that you are playing against the dealer, the rules of Ultimate Texas Hold’em are very similar to the land-based game. Once you have taken a seat at an available table, you can be dealt in as soon as the next round starts.
Placing the Ante and Blind Bet
At the start of each new round, you must place an equal bet on the ante and the blind. You can do this by clicking/tapping on the virtual chips and placing them in the highlighted betting area.
Once all the bets are placed, the dealer will deal each player two cards facing up and himself or herself two cards facing down. Where the game differs from casino games like Hold’em is how and when the betting rounds occur.
Checking and Making a Play Bet
The aim of Ultimate Texas Hold’em Poker is to beat the dealer’s hand by creating the highest 5-card Poker hand using your 2 original cards and the community cards. Once the first round has been dealt, you have the option of checking or making a play bet of 3x or 4x the ante bet amount. The dealer will then deal out the first 3 community cards, which is called the flop. If you checked on the first betting round, you can check again or make a bet of 2x the ante amount.
Once all the players around the table have checked or made a play bet, the dealer will deal the final two community cards, which is called the river. If you checked on the first two rounds, you must make a play bet at 1x the ante bet amount to continue. You also have the option of folding.
Winning a Hand
Once the final round of live casino online betting has been completed, the dealer will flip over his or her down facing cards, which will determine the outcome of the game. If your 5-card hand is higher than the dealer’s hand, you will be paid out accordingly. In this game, the dealer must qualify with a pair or higher. If the dealer does not qualify, all bets are paid out.
In all other cases, the highest scoring poker hand wins. The standard poker hands apply including pairs, trips, four of a kind, full house, straight, flush and straight flush.
Ultimate Texas Hold’em Side Bets
As with all the best online casino live dealer games, Ultimate Texas Hold’em also offers you the chance to place side bets. One of the most popular side bets is the trips bet. This bet is optional and is placed at the start of each round. With this bet, if you land 3 of a kind, you will be paid out regardless of whether your poker hand is a winner or not.
