Ultimate Texas Hold'em Progressive

Ultimate Texas Hold'em Progressive features heads-up play against the Dealer, and optional Trips bonus bet and a progressive bet! This game gives you several advantages including:

  • The earlier you bet, the more you can bet
  • You don't have to fold until you see all the Community Cards
  • The Trips Bonus pays odds if your final 5-Card Hand is a Three-of-a-Kind of better. A player may fold, forfeiting their Ante and Blind Wagers, and still win the Trips Bonus wagers if they have a hand listed on the posted pay table.

If the Player's Hand beats the Dealer's Hand, the Player receives a 1-to-1 payout on his Ante and Play bets. The Blind pays if the Player's winning hand is at least a Straight and pushes if it is less than a Straight. If the Dealer's Hand beats the Player's Hand, the Player loses his Ante, Blind, and Play wagers. If the Dealer and Player tie, the Player's Ante, Blind, and Play wagers push. 

The Dealer needs at least a Pair to qualify. When the Dealer doesn't qualify, he returns the Player's Ante, but all other bets receive action.

The Right Player's best cards are the Pair of 5s in the Community Cards, while the Dealer has a Pair of 7s so the Dealer wins. The Right Player loses his Ante, Blind, Play, and Trips wagers.

The Middle Player has a Straight Flush, while the Dealer has a Pair of 7s so the Middle Player wins. He wins a 1-to-1 payout on his Ante and Play Bets, 50-to-1 on his Blind Bet, and 40-to-1 on his Trips Bet.

The Left Player has a Pair of Kings, while the Dealer has a Pair of 7s so the Left Player wins. He wins a 1-to-1 payout on his Ante and Play Bets. Because he won against the Dealer with less than a Straight, his Blind Bet pushes.
