Texas Hold'em Bonus*

To win at Texas Hold'em Bonus you must be the player with the best five-card poker hand at the end of the game.  


HOW TO PLAY

You only have to beat the dealer's hand to win, not the other players at the table. Players also have the option of putting up a bonus jackpot wager.

Players and the Dealer are dealt two initial cards face-down. The Dealer will deal 5 community cards which are used by the Player and the Dealer to make the best possible 5 card Poker hand. The Player and the Dealer may use any combination of the 2 down cards, and the 5 community cards to make the best possible hand.

Playing Against the Dealer

Players must make an Ante wager to participate in the game. Players must place a Flop wager if they wish to play their hand against the dealer. The Flop wager must be double the Ante wager. If the Player decides not to place the Flop wager, they must Fold and forfeit the Ante wager. Players will have an option to place additional wagers that are equal to the Ante wager on the Turn and River cards.

Odds of Winning Texas Hold'em Bonus Poker

Texas Hold'em Bonus Poker is a chance-based casino game. Games of chance are based on the concepts of randomness. You cannot influence whether you will win or lose, so all players have an equal chance of winning. It doesn't matter if you just lost three times in a row, or 40. The odds of winning never change. The only thing you can control is how much you bet, how often you play and for how long. That's why many players set a limit beforehand — it's the best way to keep chance-based games fun.
