Texas Hold'Em Bonus Poker

: Game Rules & Strategy
Description: Texas holdem bonus is a variation on the popular Texas Hold'em game. Like real Texas Hold 'em the player may bet his hole card, after the flop, and after the turn (but not after the river). Your goal is to beat the dealer's hand. Both for you, as for the dealer, the best five card poker hand is select from the seven available cards.

How to play:

  • Place a bet on the ante field and an optional bet on the bonus field. (note that during the game you will be able to raise the bet up to 4 times the ante bet, so make sure you have enough money in your balance!)
  • Press the "deal" button.
  • Player and dealer cards are dealt.
  • The bonus bet is evaluated and paid immediately (these winnings can be used to raise the ante bet).
  • Based on your cards you have to chose between fold and raise. If you fold, you lose the ante bet. If you raise, you increase the ante bet with twice the original ante value.
  • Three cards are dealt on the table (flop).
  • Based on your cards and the additional three cards on the table you have to chose between check and raise. If you check, you continue the game without raising your bet. If you raise, you increase the ante bet with the original ante value.
  • An additional card is dealt on the table (turn).
  • Based on your cards and the additional four cards on the table you have to chose between check and raise. If you check, you continue the game without raising your bet. If you raise, you increase the ante bet with the original ante value.
  • An additional card is dealt on the table (river).
  • The dealer cards are revealed. From the seven cards, the best pokerhand is selected. Then your highest pokerhand is compared to the dealer's highest hand.
  • The result is evaluated and winnings are paid.

Payouts for Bonus bets are independent of the main game result. Ante bet payouts are based on the Ante paytable. Call bets payouts are 1:1 and the result is calculated based on your hand compared to dealer's hand.
