Ultimate Texas Hold’em – Las Vegas Table Games 2018

Ultimate Texas Hold’em is the most popular of the games that came out due to the poker boom. Most mid-sized and large Las Vegas casinos spread it. Many have multiple tables. Limits start at $2 at Jerry’s Nugget, located just north of downtown Las Vegas. Most casinos spread it with a $5 minimum bet. Some higher end ones require $10.

How to Play Ultimate Texas Hold’em

Live ultimate texas holdem gameUltimate Texas Hold’em is played like the one in Las Vegas poker rooms. Players start by making an Ante and Blind bet. The two bets must be equal. There are also two side bets at most Ultimate Texas Hold’em tables. One is a progressive, while the other is a simple bonus hand.

The progressive will pay on either flopping a royal flush or making one out of the seven cards. The flopped royal flush jackpot will often pay more than $100,000, while the royal flush on seven cards typically hits before the jackpot gets higher than $15,000.

The side bets are optional. Only the Ante and Blind bets are mandatory.

#1 – Once bets are established, players and the dealer each receive two cards face down. Five cards are placed down in the center of the table. These are community cards used by all players and the dealer.
#2 – Players look at their cards and decide whether to raise or check. A player that would like to raise at this point must bet three or four times the Ante. Players also have the option to check.

#3 – Three of the community cards are displayed. This is known as the flop. There is another chance to bet before the last two cards are shown, known as the turn or river.

  • A player that does not raise before the flop may do so for double the Ante after the flop or an amount equal to the Ante after the turn and river are exposed.
  • A player that raises before or after the flop has no other action to make for the rest of the hand. The cards should be tucked under the bets.

#4 – Once all the cards are exposed, the dealer’s hand is shown. Its strength is determined and compared to the other player’s hands. The dealer must have at least a pair to qualify. If the board pairs, this qualifies as a dealer opener.

If the dealer does not qualify, the Ante pushes. The Raise bets will play. If the player beats the dealer, the Ante (if the dealer qualifies) and raises are paid. If the dealer beats the player, the Ante and Raise bets lose. If the dealer and player have the same hand, the player pushes.

The Blind bet pushes unless the player makes a straight or higher. It then pays based on the chart.
