Texas Hold’em Bonus Poker Game Rules
The first essential moment before starting to play any game, we need to know the rules of the game. In the case of Texas Hold’em Bonus Poker, we have a big advantage, since the game is based on the world famous Texas Hold’em Poker. Let’s check how it works!
Same as we play Texas Hold’em, in Texas Hold’em Poker is used 1 deck of 52 cards, which is suffered after each game round.
In this game, you play against the dealer rather against than other players and there is no bet after the River card.
It is worth noting all players play the same hand.
To begin the game, the player must make an ANTE bet (initial bet).
The player can make the optional BONUS and FIRST 5 JACKPOT bets (ANTE bet is required).
Both the player and dealer receive 2 starting cards (the hole cards):
- The player’s cards are dealt face-up.
- The dealer’s cards are dealt face down.
After this initial cards are dealt, the player has the choice:
- FOLD (surrender their ANTE bet) in which case the hands is over, or make a PLAY bet of 2x their ANTE.
The dealer deals 3 FLOP cards and the player has a choice:
- BET (1x ANTE) or CHECK (No Bet)
The dealer deals one TURN card and the player has a choice:
- BET (1x ANTE) or CHECK (No Bet)
Thank dealer deals the final card, called the RIVER, and reveals his/her cards.
The ANTE bet is evaluated by comparing the player’s and dealer’s best 5 card poker hand out of the 7 dealt cards.
What is Side Bonus?
In Texas Hold’em Bonus Poker you have BONUS bet – an optional bet, can be placed after your minimum ANTE bet is placed. All you need to do, just to place your bet on the BONUS bet spot.
If you have a Pair or better, you win your BONUS bet, according to the BONUS bet pay table, no matter what hand the dealer archives.
It is based only on the player’s and dealer’s initial cards, according to the Bonus pay table.
What is FIRST 5 JACKPOT bet?
In Texas Hold’em Bonus Poker you have the FIRST 5 JACKPOTS bet, it is an optional side bet that allows you to win a share of the large progressive jackpots. The amount of the progressive jackpot grows steadily over time as more FIRST 5 JACKPOT bets are placed by other players, one bet is equal 1 euro. A player who has placed a FIRST 5 JACKPOT bet at a participating table gets a Royal Flush.
All players who have placed a FIRST 5 JACKPOT bet in the winning game round share the total amount of the progressive jackpot, based on the current value of the jackpot, plus all the FIRST 5 JACKPOT bets that have been placed by players at participating game tables in the current round. This bet also allows you to win an additional prize of the fixed amount when you personally get a hand of Three of Kind or better.
At the start of new game round, place your optional FIRST 5 JACKPOT bet after you have placed your ANTE bet and before the betting time expires.
Your decision to PLAY or FOLD your hands does not affect your ability to win a share of the progressive jackpot in the game round, or your ability to win one of the fixed prizes from the FIRST 5 JACKPOT pay table. If the game round is canceled, your FIRST 5 JACKPOT bet will be refunded along with your other bets. If you held a potential prize-winning hand according to the FIRST 5 JACKPOT pay table in a canceled game round, the decision to compensate you manually will be made by your game provider.
