Texas Hold'em BonusSM features three exciting elements: heads-up play against the dealer, a bonus bet based on the player's hole cards, and a $1 progressive bet.
HOW TO PLAY
To begin, players make the Ante bet to play against the dealer and make the Bonus bet to play against the two-card paytable. To play for all or part of the incremental jackpot, players may also make the $1 progressive bet.
Each player will receive two cards. Once they review their cards, they can either fold or stay in the game by making a Flop bet of 2x their Ante. Next, the dealer will reveal the first three community cards, and players may either check or make a Turn bet of 1x their Ante.
The dealer then reveals the fourth community card, and players may either check or make a River bet of 1x their Ante. Once all players have made their final betting decisions, the dealer will reveal the final community card and will also reveal his or her two hole cards and announce the hand.
If a player's five-card hand beats the dealer's hand, the player's Flop, Turn, and River bets pay 1 to 1. The player's Ante bet also pays 1 to 1 if the player's cards contain a straight or better; otherwise it pushes. If the dealer's hand beats a player's hand, the player's Ante, Flop, Turn, and River bets lose.
The Bonus bet wins if a player's two-card hand is a pair, or an Ace and face card. The progressive bet wins if a player has a Full House or better on the flop. The top award—100 percent of the jackpot—hits if a player flops a Royal Flush.
To maximize game play, we recommend using an i-Deal single deck specialty shuffler, or a DeckMate2 blackjack shuffler. For more information on this game's paytable or odds, please contact your Bally Account Executive.
