How It Works

Heads Up Hold’em includes many features players have come to know and enjoy including the familiar Texas Hold’em betting pattern. To play, players start by making equal ante and odds bets, and placing any of the additional wagers listed below. Then, they receive two cards, at which point they may check or raise up to three times the ante amount. The dealer then shows three community cards, and the player once again has a chance to check or raise their ante. Finally, the dealer shows the turn and river cards, and the player may raise their ante again or fold.

Experienced poker players will recognize core aspects of this gameplay. However, Heads Up Hold’em offers improved betting opportunities, including:

  • A Trips Plus Bonus bet.
  • A Pocket Bonus wager, where the player wins if their hole card hand is composed of a pair, or an Ace and Face card.
  • And a Bad Beat Bonus which does not require an additional wager. If a player achieves a poker hand with a straight or better and loses to the dealer, their Odds wager will win and pay dramatically more on the Bad Beat pay table.

No other Texas Hold’em variation offers all these player favorite features. Come on down and try this new and exciting game today!
