HOLD ON TO SOMETHING!
Created in partnership with Scientific Games, Live Ultimate Texas Hold’em is the exclusive online live version of the world’s favourite Texas Hold’em game — available only from Evolution. Not only does it add game variety to your Live Casino, it’s a sure-fire way to attract poker enthusiasts.
Exclusive to Evolution, Live Ultimate Texas Hold’em is the world’s most popular house-banked Texas Hold’em game, packed full of fun, interest, exciting betting options and strategy play.
So, whether you’re a die-hard Hold’em player or it’s your first time at this rodeo, you’ll find that this table has a few quirks that make your gameplay more engaging and side bets that increase your opportunities to win.
Players go head-to-head with the dealer with the object of forming a five-card hand (from their own two cards and three of the five community cards) that ranks higher than the dealer’s hand. The dealer must have at least a pair to qualify. But before the Flop, the River and, finally the dealer’s two cards are revealed, players must place an equal Ante and Blind bet. Then they have three opportunities to make one raise with the Play bet. The earlier they raise, the more they can risk and win. Adding even more interest is the optional Trips bonus bet.
Instantly engaging and deeply absorbing, this is the ultimate poker-based challenge and a star attraction for new players and experienced strategy players alike.
How to play Ultimate Texas Hold'em
Before we go any further, let’s set the basics straight. The aim of the game – that is played with a single, standard 52-card deck – is to beat the dealer’s hand by getting the best possible five-card poker hand, made out of the two cards dealt to the player and the five community cards.
When betting time begins, you’re able to place your chips (as per the limits set by the operator) on the Ante bet. When you do this, a Blind bet of equal value is placed automatically by the provider. When this time is up, the dealer deals two cards face up to you and two cards face down for them. He or she then deals three community cards face up in the middle of the table (called the Flop). Following a brief pause, he or she deals two final community cards (called the Turn and the River respectively).
You and the dealer can use the cards in your hand and the community cards to comprise the best five-card hand. During the pauses in the game, you can decide to play or check. The best paying hands are formed and compared for you and for the dealer, using five out of seven available cards, to determine the winner.
There’s also the option to place a Trips side bet before the round begins that wins when your final five-card hand is three-of-a-kind or better. This wager is placed in the Trips betting area, once your Ante has been accepted.
TRIPS BONUS BET
ultimate texas holdem
An optional side bet in which the player’s objective is to make the best five-card poker hand by combining their own two cards and three of the five community cards. This bet pays on Three of a Kind or better, no matter what hand the dealer achieves.
This games provider doesn’t cut any corners when it comes to replicating a land-based feel. The table is in the centre of the casino floor, and in the background, you’ll see at least two other active tables. The lighting is on the dim side, but glowing lamps illuminate the casino floor, ensuring you can see the gameplay clearly and enhancing the atmosphere. Throughout the casino, green and gold tones dominate the scene. Together, the green felt-covered tables and reflective gold curtains create a familiar look. You’re right in the centre of the action of this game with a slightly elevated view of the poker table, so that every flop, turn, river and the dealer’s cards come into view the second they’re revealed.
Your live dealer faces you straight on, behind the table, while guiding you through every moment. Female dealers wear rich, gold gowns, while males sport black bow ties and waistcoats. Overall, it’s a classy look.
The most fundamental part of winning at Live Ultimate Texas Hold’em is playing by the rules. You’re able to place your chips (as per the limits set by the operator) as described above during the betting window. If you make an early Play bet, you stand the chance to raise 3 or 4 times your Ante, however, if you delay placing this bet until after the Flop or the River, you may only raise x2 or x1. The earlier you choose to make this move, the greater the opportunity for reward (and risk) but keep in mind that only one raise is allowed per game at three separate opportunities as the game progresses.
This game is supplied by Evolution Gaming and is certified by the UK Gambling Commission as having been independently tested and up to the required standards for players in the UK.

Live Ultimate Texas Hold’em is a one-to-many game simultaneously accepting an unlimited number of players.
First, you’ll see the dealer right in front of you. On the table, there are wagering areas for Ante bets, Play bets, Blind bets, and Trips side bets. During the betting period, the layout will appear on your screen, allowing you to select the amount and type of bet you want to place. In the lower left corner, you can keep an eye on your total bet and your balance. As the game progresses, the player’s and the dealer’s cards will appear in an easy-to-read graphic to the left of the table to ensure that you don’t lose track of what’s going on.
In the upper left corner of the screen, you’ll see the paytable for standard and side bets. Click the Pin icon to keep the paytable visible on your screen, especially if you’re planning to place side bets you may be unfamiliar with.
In the upper right, you’ll find all the settings and controls for the game. Open the chat window to type a message to the dealer, click the ? icon to get help with the game, or press the History button to review your recent account activity. You can also adjust the volume and video controls here too, and change tables or return to the lobby from the lower right corner of the display.
It uses a single deck shuffled after each round. Rather than playing against your peers, you’ll be using 2 of your own and 5 community cards to score a better hand than the dealer who qualifies with a pair or better.
The game will provide multiple opportunities to raise, though it can be done only once during each round. Having received your cards, you’ll have to decide whether to Play 4x, Play 3x, or Check.
Choosing one of the first two means no additional decisions will be required during the remainder of the current round. If you opt to Check, you’ll be able to raise x2 after the Flop, or x1 after the River.
The game supports Trips side bet which wins when the player’s final hand is a three-of-a-kind or higher. It’s independent to the development and the final result of the main game, and can deliver up to 50:1 for a Royal Flush.
Score the same hand in the base game and you’ll win 500:1.
