Texas Hold’em Bonus is an exciting hold’em style game that features head-to-head play against the dealer and an optional Bonus bet. An ANTE wager must be made in order to place a BONUS wager.
Players make an ante wager prior to the deal. After being dealt their first two cards, players can either fold or make another wager equal to twice their ante bet to continue playing. Then comes the flop – three community cards face up. Players can check or wager again to continue playing. That’s followed by the 4th and 5th community cards – the turn and the river – with a round of betting before each card is turned. The player must check or make a wager equal to the ante bet on the turn and river rounds. Only the flop bet is twice the ante bet.
Any player with a poker hand that beats the dealer’s wins. Players who win retain their ante bets and are paid even money on the total of their flop, turn and river wagers. If the player’s hand is equal to the dealer’s, it’s a push. When the player’s winning hand is a straight or better they are paid an additional amount equal to the ante.
There is also an additional Bonus wager that can be made before the start of the hand in which the player can win regardless of how their hand matches up to the dealer’s.
