The amount you can win depends on the size of the ante and on how much you bet during the main game. However, apart from the main bet, players also have the option to place two additional bets, such as the Bonus Bet and the Progressive Jackpot side bet.
The main bet pays 1 to 1 on hands that are a Straight or better and pushes on all other hands. The Play bet, Turn bet, and River bet also pay 1 to 1.
Bonus Bet pays regardless of the outcome of the main game and depends on the player’s and dealer’s first two hands.
- If your first two cards are pairs of 2 through pairs of 10, the payout is 3 to 1.
- If your first two cards are AQ or AJ unsuited, the payout is 5 to 1.
- If your first two cards are KK, QQ, JJ, the payout is 10 to 1
- If your first two cards are AK unsuited, the payout is 15 to 1.
- If your first two cards are AQ or AJ suited, the payout is 20 to 1
- If your first two cards are AK suited, the payout is 25 to 1.
- If your first two cards are AA, the payout is 30 to 1.
- If your first two cards are AA and the dealer also has AA as their first two cards, the payout is 1000 to 1.
Progressive Jackpot Side Bet
Apart from being able to bet on the Bonus Bet, players will also have an option to bet on the Progressive Jackpot side bet. The best thing about it that casino operators look forward to is that the initial jackpot of €50,000 is funded by Evolution Gaming. The progressive jackpot continues to grow each time someone places a Jackpot side bet while playing Evolution Gaming’s Texas Hold’em Bonus Poker.
What’s more, the game also includes fixed jackpots. If you have placed a Progressive Jackpot side bet and you land one of the following hand combinations, you will receive the following payouts:
- Three of a Kind pays 3 for 1
- Straight pays 10 for 1
- Flush pays 25 for 1
- Full House pays 50 for 1
- Four of a Kind pays 250 for 1
- Straight Flush pays 2,500 for 1
- Royal Flush pays Progressive Jackpot
How to Play
In order to play, you will first have to place the ante bet. After that, you will have an option to place the optional Bonus Bet or the Progressive Jackpot bet.
You will then be dealt two cards face-up while the dealer will receive two cards face-down. After you have received your cards, you can check or bet the amount that’s 1x ante by placing chips on the Turn bet spot and you will be presented with the same options during the next betting stage. After the River card is dealt, there is no more betting.
The dealer will then flip their two cards and determine who has a stronger hand. If the dealer’s hand is stronger, the player loses all bets made during the round, apart from the Bonus Bet and the Progressive Jackpot bet since you can win them regardless of losing in the main game.
If both the player and the dealer have cards of equal value, then the ante, Flop, Turn, and River bets all push.
As you can see, the gameplay is relatively simple, and even a newcomer to poker can quickly learn the basics.
