Make Ante and Blind bets in Ultimate Texas Hold 'em Live!


Ultimate Texas Hold'em Live Game Overview

The game uses one 52-card deck which is shuffled at the conclusion of each hand.

To begin the game, you have to make equal bets on the Ante and Blind.

Both you and dealer receive two starting cards, with the dealer's cards being dealt face down.

You have a choice to either:

  • Check 
  • Make a Play bet of 3x or 4x your Ante. 

All five community cards are then dealt and your best five-card poker hand is evaluated against the dealer's best five-card poker hand.

If you check, three community cards are dealt and you are given an extra choice:

  • Check
  • Make a Play bet of 2x your Ante.

The remaining two community cards are then dealt and your best five-card poker hand is evaluated against the dealer's best five-card poker hand.

If you check, the remaining two community cards are dealt and you have a final choice:

  • Fold (surrender your Ante and Blind bets) in which case the hand is over
  • Make a Play bet of 1x your Ante. 

The dealer's cards are then revealed and your best five-card poker hand is evaluated against the dealer's best five-card poker hand.

The Ante bet pushes if the dealer has less than a pair. Otherwise, the Ante bet is in play (i.e. can win or lose depending on whose hand is stronger).

However, should the dealer have a better hand, the Play, Ante and Blind bets lose. The exception to this is that the Ante pushes if dealer has less than a pair.

If you have a better hand, you will win and are then paid as follows:

Ante: 1:1

Play: 1:1

Blind: According to the Blind pay table posted within the game

Exception: Ante pushes if dealer has less than a pair.

Note: Blind pushes if player has less than a straight.

If your hand ties with the dealers, the Ante, Play and Blind bets push.

The optional Trips bet is based on your final five-card poker hand only, and even if you fold your hand it will pay. 

You are paid according to the Trips pay table posted within the game.


Hand Rankings

In Ultimate Texas Hold'em, hands are ranked from highest to lowest as follows:

  1. Royal Flush (contains the following cards of the same suit: A, K, Q, J, 10)
  2. Straight Flush (all cards are in sequential rank and of the same suit)
  3. Four of a Kind (contains four cards of the same rank)
  4. Full House (contains three matching cards of one rank and two matching cards of another rank)
  5. Flush (all cards are of the same suit)
  6. Straight (all cards are of sequential rank in at least two different suits)
  7. Three of a Kind (contains three cards of the same rank)
  8. Two Pair (contains two cards of the same rank, plus two more of another  matching rank)
  9. Pair (contains two cards of the same rank)
  10. High Card (hand does not meet the above requirements, highest valued card is counted)

Note that the value of a card ascends sequentially from 2-10, and then according to the following:

  1. Jack (denoted by a J)
  2. Queen (denoted by a Q)
  3. King (denoted by a K)
  4. Ace (denoted by an A)

Only the highest possible rank within your cards is considered when evaluating your hand, and while a Straight Flush contains both a Straight and a Flush, it is calculated solely as a Straight Flush. 

Except in a a 5-4-3-2-Ace sequence, Ace is always considered high. 

Side bets will be paid according to the pay table.


Return to Player

Return To Player (RTP): 96.50% - 99.27% dependant on bet placement.

The expected return is the amount we pay out to players relative to the amount of wagering on the game.

For example, if we take £100 of wagers we will, on average, pay out £94.12 – £98.14 (dependant on bet placement) in wins.
