How to play Texas Holdem Bonus at William Hill Casino

The unprecedented increase in the popularity of both online and land based gambling can only be attributed to this one game, the indubitable King of poker, Texas Holdem! In the previous pages we have looked at the rules, strategy, history and prominent players of this popular poker offering.

The game was created to attract punters to the tables and screens of the casinos, and within the same month of it being launched in the United States, the wannabe pro poker specialists playing the game had more than trebled.

The William Hill Casino offering is simplicity itself, with the relevant payouts prominently displayed on screen and the areas for the flop, river and turn clearly demarcated for both the bets and the cards. The poker rankings for five-card Stud are enforced and as with many other variants of poker, an ante, or forced bet is required to kick the game off. This version of poker is generally referred to as community card poker as the player not only uses the cards dealt to him, but to the cards face up in front of the dealer, the community cards.

As with many other casino card games available at the William Hill Casino, there is an additional bonus bet option, and for as little as a quid the player could be in the running for winnings of up to 1000 times that of the bonus bet placed!
