How to Play:
In Texas Hold’em Bonus Poker, player and the dealer play in one against one hand, meaning that only one good hand is required to beat the dealer. The purpose of the game is to get the highest-ranked five-card poker hand at the end. To get started with the game, an Ante bet has to be placed and player and dealer will receive two cards. The Player cards will be dealt face-up and the dealer’s face down. At this moment player may also place a Bonus Bet as a sidebet. Player can either bet or fold the hand. By folding the hand the Ante Bet is lost and hand is over. If player decides to play the hand a second wager is required and both, the Ante and Flop bets need to be placed. Once second bet has been placed three community cards that will be shared by both, player and dealer, will be dealt. Player can Call or Raise and make additional bets. Once third bet has been placed the fourth community card known as “The Turn” will be dealt giving the player the chance, once again, to Call or Raise. Once the fifth community card also known as “River” is dealt, dealer will reveal his hand to be compared with the player’s hand.

Texas Hold'Em Bonus Poker Tip 1: Avoid playing this table game as the classic Texas Hold'em. Players have the chance to play almost any two cards since they are only playing against the dealer.
Texas Hold'Em Bonus Poker Tip 2: When playing always a good idea to fold unsuited hands, unrelated low cards both below seven, for example: 2-5 or 3-6.
Texas Hold'Em Bonus Poker Tip 3: A good strategy is to either place the bet or fold the hand right before community cards are dealt. By folding unsuited 2/3, 2/4, 2/5, 2/6, 2/7 and playing other hands the house edge is reduced.
