Ultimate Texas Hold’em is an exciting card game played with a standard 52-card deck. Different providers have made online versions of this game, but the basic premise is still the same.
The goal in Ultimate Texas Hold’em is to create a better five-card hand than the dealer using your two hole cards and the five community cards. In this game, you are not playing against other players, only with the dealer.
Now that you know what you need to do, let’s look at how to play Ultimate Texas Hold’em.
Betting in Ultimate Texas Hold'em
You need to know how to bet if you’re going to play. Right? The main betting options you need to make are the ante and the blind. When the game begins, you need to make equal wagers on these two bets.
You can also make the trips bet. Like in other poker games, trips payout when you get three of a kind or better. You can win up to 50:1 for a royal flush.
When betting is done, the dealer gives everyone in the game two cards. These cards are dealt face down and only the player can see their cards. The dealer also gets two cards in their hand. Five community cards are dealt in the center face down.
Ultimate Texas Hold’em Game Decisions
The main decisions you make in Ultimate Texas Hold’em are whether to raise or check. You can raise once during the hand. The amount you can raise varies depending on when you want to do it.
For example, straight after getting your hole cards, you can place a play bet four times the value of your ante. If you are unsure, you can just check.
The dealer will then reveal the first three community cards. Here you will have another opportunity to make a play bet two times your ante bet. This only applies if you haven’t raised it already.
After this round of decision making, the dealer then reveals the last two community cards. Now you will need to either equal your auntie or fold.
Player and dealer hands are compared, and the winner is determined.
Winning in Ultimate Texas Hold'em
In Ultimate Texas Hold’em, the dealer needs a pair or better to qualify. If the dealer fails to get a pair, the ante is a push.
The play and ante bets are paid 1:1 to whoever has the better hand, if the dealer qualifies. Blind bet payouts are determined by the quality of your hand. Starting from 1:1 for a straight, you can win up to 500:1 for a royal flush.
