If you are a Poker player, or you are willing to become a Poker Player, then you will love Texas Hold’em Bonus Poker. This game is just you against the dealer with no other players to worry about, truly allowing you to play your personal strategy. Each of you is first dealt two cards and then ultimately five communal cards are dealt open-faced in the center of the table. The objective of the game is clear; whoever combines three of the middle five cards and the own two personal cards to make the best 5-card Poker hand wins.
Start each hand with placing your ante bet by clicking on the chips on your right hand to place them into the betting box; the chips are in denominations of $1, $5, $25, $50 and $100. When your bet is set, click ‘Deal’ to receive your two personal cards. If you like your chances after evaluating your cards, you can make a side bet (called a ‘Bonus Bet’). From here you can either fold your hand to end the round and forfeit your ante, or continue with your hand by placing both a new ante and a new flop. Once you are set on this second betting round amount, click ‘Deal’ again to have the three communal cards dealt. Seeing your 5-card Poker hand possibilities here, you can Fold, Call or Raise the bet amount. At this point, the fourth community card (“The Turn”) is dealt. Depending on your updated possible Poker hand given this fourth communal card, you can again either Fold, Call or Raise your bet. When this betting round is finalized, the fifth and final card (“The River”) is dealt. The dealer will then show his hand, and whichever of you has the best hand takes the whole pot.
Before the cards are dealt, you can make a bet of whatever amount you choose. With each new round of play, you will have the same option to place bet raises and calls. If you make a mistake with your bet, before you hit deal, just click on the ante box on the table and it will clear all bets so you can place the right amount.
When you are ready for the dealer to start handing out the cards, just click deal and get into the game. His cards are face down, so you should play the odds accordingly.
The winnings in this fun casino game are like any other Poker game: all or nothing. All bets are kept in a community pool in the middle of the table for all to see. If the dealer folds, you collect it all and the same goes for you folding. If the game makes it to the last community card, then whoever makes the best hand using their cards and the community cards wins. Whatever round play carries into holds the same rules, winner takes all. So, if you feel like your hand is weak, just fold and start fresh with the next round.
