Texas Poker features heads-up play against the dealer and two optional bonus bets. You may have more advantages:

    – The earlier you bet, the more you can bet.
    – You don’t have to fold until you see all community cards.
    – The “PLUS” optional bet pays if your final five-card hand is a 3-of-a-kind or better.
    – You have the chance of another optional bet: “Carre”, 4-of–a-kind out of Player’s and Dealer’s cards.

    Make equal bets in the Ante and “BONUS” circles. You may also make the optional “PLUS” or/ and “CARRE” bonus bets. You will then receive two cards and at this point you can either check or bet 3X or 4X your Ante. The dealer then reveals the three-card flop. If you haven’t already played on “BET”, you have a choice: check or bet 2X your Ante. The dealer then reveals the final two community cards (the river). If you haven’t already played on “BET” you have a choice: fold or bet 1X your Ante.
    The dealer then reveals his two hole cards and announces his hand. If your hand beats the dealer’s, your “BET” and Ante bets win even money. If the dealer’s hand beats yours, your “BET”, Ante and “BONUS” wagers lose. If you tie, those bets push.
    The “BONUS” pays if your hand beats the dealer’s and is at least a Straight. If you beat the dealer with less than a Straight, it pushes.
    All payout odds are printed on the layout.
    The dealer needs a pair to qualify. When the dealer doesn’t qualify, he returns your Ante. All other bets receive action.


    You play only against the dealer’s hand, not against other players.
    Each player places an Ante bet (with an optional Bonus bet) and receives 5 cards, dealt face-down, from a standard 52-card deck. The dealer receives 4 cards face-down and one card face-up.
    After examining your hand, you may decide either to play on by betting an amount equal to double your Ante bet or you can change ‘One Card’ for the equivalent of your Ante Bet or you can change ‘More Cards’ for the equivalent of your double Ante Bet for each of the 2nd, 3rd and 4th card, the 5th card is for free (forfeiting any Bonus Bet).
    For each player cards will be changed simultaneously and not sequentially.
    The final bet is equivalent to twice the Ante.
    To qualify the dealer must have an Ace and a King or better. On qualifying the dealer will compare each player’s hand against his or her own, the better Poker hand winning. If the dealer does not qualify, then only Ante bets are paid even money and the winning Bonus optional bets.
