Texas Hold 'Em Bonus is a table game which is played heads-up against the dealer and has an optional bonus bet. The game is based on the traditional Texas Hold'em poker game, but differs in that there is no bet after the river card.
The player starts by making an ante bet in the Ante
betting circle. The player may also bet the optional Bonus
bet. He will then receive two cards.
When the player receives his two hole cards, the player my decide to fold with no further play losing his ante bet or make a flop bet of 2x the Ante. The dealer then reveals the three-card flop. Now the player may decide to check or make a turn bet equal to the Ante. The dealer then reveals the fourth community card (the turn). Once again the player may decide to check or make a river bet equal to the Ante. The dealer then reveals the fifth and final community card and player and dealer make their best five card poker hand from their own hand and five community cards.
WINNING & LOSING:
If the dealer's hand beats the player's hand, the player's Ante, Flop, Turn, and River bets all lose. If the player and dealer tie, all bets push. If the player's hand beats the dealer's, his Flop, Turn, and River bets win even money. The player also wins even money on the Ante bet if his best hand is a straight or better, otherwise the Ante bet pushes. Lastly, the optional bonus bet pays out based on the pay table below, even if the player loses to the dealer's hand.
