Live Ultimate Texas Hold’em

Please note: The information below about online gambling is purely informative. In the Netherlands it is currently NOT permitted to gamble online via websites that do not hold a license issued by the Dutch Gaming Authority. As it stands now, new online licenses will be issued in October 2021.

The purpose of Live Ultimate Texas Hold’em is for players to take on the dealer and form a better 5-card poker hand. To do this, they can use two of their own cards and five cards from the table, also called common cards. The flop offers three additional cards and the turn and river both also offer one additional card. It is up to the player to form the best combination out of seven cards in total.

How to play Live Ultimate Texas Hold’em

Players are required to ante at the beginning. Then they receive two playing cards and there are the options to ‘call’ and ‘fold’. To call, you must place double the initial bet. Let’s say you place €30 on the ante area, then it will cost you an additional €60 to call before the flop (€90 total). After the flop opens with three cards, players are again given two options, this time ‘bet’ or ‘check’.

If you check, you don’t have to bet any extra money to see a fourth card. If you choose to bet, it will cost you 30 euros (original bet). The fourth card will open and then you can choose ‘bet’ or ‘check’ again (another 30 euros). In total you will have bet 150 euros if you have chosen to raise on all streets. In principle, you can also keep the bet lower if you have a less good poker hand.

What is the goal in the Live Ultimate Texas Hold’em game?

The idea is to beat the live dealer with a better hand, consisting of five cards in total. The flop, turn and river can be used as your own cards. These are five cards. You have two cards in your own hands and so with seven cards you can form a poker hand of up to five cards. You pay money to see and use these cards. First, an ante, as mentioned before, and second, you have to place additional money to ‘call’.

Trips bonus bet

An optional bet in live Ultimate Texas Hold’em is the trips bonus bet. Here the player’s goal is to form the best five-card poker hand. This will be done on the flop with three community cards and the two received cards. This bet will only pay out from combinations such as three of a kind, straight, flush, full house, four of a kind, straight flush and royal flush.

The poker hands that can be formed

  • Royal Flush: Get consecutive cards from 10 to Ace of the same suit and this is called a Royal Flush.
  • Straight Flush: A Straight Flush can be formed with five consecutive cards as a street, but of the same suit and not a Royal Flush.
  • Four of a Kind: Four matching cards form a Four of a Kind.
  • Full House: The Full House can be formed with a pair and a Three of a Kind.
  • Flush: The Flush is formed by five cards of the same suit. The cards must be random.
  • Street: Form a street with five cards in sequence and not of the same suit.
  • Three of a Kind: With three similar cards you form a Three of a Kind.
  • Two Pair: Two x two similar cards form Two Pair.
  • One Pair: One pair is easily obtained by getting two similar cards.
  • Ace/King High: An Ace/King High is not a combination, but at least A and K in hands.
