Like other 888Casino live products, their Live Ultimate Texas Hold’em game is provided by Evolution Gaming, streamed live in high, TV-quality format, directly from the studio in Riga, Latvia. The game follows the same set of rules like traditional Texas Hold‘em, the player gets 2 cards turned upwards and there are 5 community cards.
The game is played with a single deck and an unlimited number of players can play at the same time. In addition to the main game, there’s also the Trips Bonus bet. Live Ultimate Texas Hold'em is available on mobile devices as well.
Each player is required to place an Ante bet, whereas the Blind bet, which is also necessary is placed automatically. The Ante and the Blind have to be of the same value. Similarly to other 888Casino live games, this game too is played against the dealer, and not the other players.
The player can raise the Ante bet by 3 or by 4 times, during the first 3 community cards. One raise is available per round. If the player hasn’t raised up until the fourth and the fifth community cards are dealt, they can raise x1 the Ante. Otherwise, they have to fold, which automatically forfeits their Ante and Blind bet.
The Bonus bet can be placed after the Ante and the Blind have been wagered. As long as the player forms a 3 of a Kind or better it doesn’t matter what the dealer has. As for main game, the dealer’s hand can either qualify or not qualify. If it doesn’t the Ante will be a push, whereas if the dealer’s hand qualifies it will be put against the player’s hand. A Royal Flush pays out 500 to 1.
Texas Hold‘em is one of the most popular versions of poker and this version is particularly fun and playable, as it features the Trips bonus bet which allows players who have a good hand which is still weaker than the dealers, to win at least some amount of money. High video streaming quality and great dealers is what players expect from a renowned casino like 888Casino and exactly that is delivered in this game. The opportunity to raise the Ante and the 500 to 1 maximum pay-out make the game even more alluring.
