Play Triple Action Hold’em Bonus Poker Online
Triple Action Hold’em Bonus Poker is an online casino game that lives up to its name. It is actually three action-packed online poker games in one: the Ante Game, the Bonus Side Bet, and the Flop Side Bet.
The 28-Card Deck in Triple Action Hold’em Bonus Poker
Online Triple Action Hold’em Bonus Poker is played with an unusual 28-card deck of cards. This deck is composed of the 8s, 9s, 10s, Jacks, Queens, Kings, and Aces of all four suits. Needless to say, playing with this unusual deck has significant impacts on the poker odds and probabilities, and hence on your online poker strategy.
Playing the Ante Game
The first of the three action-packed games in Triple Action Hold’em is the Ante game. To play the Ante game, you place your bet in the Ante circle on the virtual poker table and click Deal. You will receive two pocket cards face-up; the dealer will receive two pocket cards, one face-up and one face-down; and three community cards will be placed in the middle of the table.
Now you must decide whether to Play or Fold. If you fold, you lose your Ante bet and the Ante game is over. If you Play, a Play bet equal to your Ante bet is placed on the table, and all the face-down cards are turned over and revealed. Your 5-card poker hand (comprising your two pocket cards and the three community cards) is compared to the dealer’s 5-card poker hand (comprising his two pocket cards and the three community cards) to determine a winner.
Winning the Ante Game
The dealer needs at least a pair of 9s to qualify in Triple Action Hold’em Bonus Poker. If the dealer does not qualify, then, regardless of whether or not your 5-card poker hand is stronger than the dealer’s, you win a 1-to-1 payout on your Ante bet, and your Play bet is returned to you with neither gain nor loss.
If the dealer does qualify, and your hand outranks his, you win a 1-to-1 payout on both your Ante bet and your Play bet. If the dealer qualifies and his hand beats yours, you lose both your Ante bet and your Play bet.
Since Triple Action Hold’em Bonus Poker is played with an unusual deck of cards, it follows that it has an unusual system of hand rankings. In most poker games, for example, four-of-a-kind or a full house outrank a flush. In Triple Action Hold’em, a flush outranks both four-of-a-kind and a full house. The hand rankings in Triple Action Hold’em online poker, from highest to lowest, are as follows:
- Royal Flush
- Straight Flush
- Four of a Kind
- Full House
- Three of a Kind
- Two Pairs
- One Pair
Winning the Ante Bonus
If you get one of the best Triple Action Hold’em Bonus Poker hands — meaning a Full House or better — you will be awarded an Ante Bonus. This is a payout on your Ante bet that is in addition to whatever you might have won on your Ante bet and your Play bet. If you play Triple Action Hold’em Bonus Poker online and you get one of these top hands, you will be paid the Ante Bonus regardless of whether or not the Dealer’s hand qualifies and regardless of whether or not your hand outranks the Dealer’s hand. The Ante Bonus payouts are:
- Royal Flush: 50 to 1
- Straight Flush: 20 to 1
- Flush: 6 to 1
- Four of a Kind: 4 to 1
- Full House: 2 to 1
It is important to remember that you can win an Ante Bonus only if you play your hand. If you fold, you forfeit your eligibility for the Ante Bonus.
The Bonus Side Bet
The Bonus side bet is made by placing a bet in the Bonus circle on the virtual poker table before the cards are dealt. Your Bonus bet may be bigger, smaller, or the same as your Ante bet.
The Bonus side bet is based on your total five-card poker hand: your two pocket cards and the three community cards. It is independent of the Ante game, so you will win the bet if you have a hand of Two Pairs or better, regardless of what the dealer has.
The payouts for the Bonus bet are:
- Royal Flush: 100 to 1
- Straight Flush: 50 to 1
- Flush: 25 to 1
- Four of a Kind: 15 to 1
- Full House: 8 to 1
- Straight: 6 to 1
- Three of a Kind: 3 to 1
- Two Pairs: 1 to 1
You can win the Bonus bet even if you fold your hand. It could happen, for example, that your two pocket cards are a 9 and a Jack of different suits; you figure it’s not so great and you decide to fold. Then the community cards are turned over and there they are: three Jacks, giving you four of a kind and a nice 15-to-1 payout on your Bonus bet. Online casino gambling is always full of surprises, and it is unexpected jackpots like these that make it so exciting.
The Flop Side Bet
The Flop side bet is made by placing a chip in the Flop circle of the virtual poker table and it is based solely on the three community cards. Like the Bonus bet, the outcome of the Flop bet is independent of the Ante game, so it doesn’t matter what pocket cards you or the dealer have as long as the community cards are a pair of jacks or better.
The payouts on the Flop bet are:
- Straight Flush: 10 to 1
- Three of a Kind: 10 to 1
- Flush: 4 to 1
- Straight: 2 to 1
- Pair of Jacks or Better: 1 to 1
As with the Bonus bet, you can win the Flop bet even if you folded your hand. So if you folded on an unsuited 9 and Jack, three Jacks in the community cards will award you a 10-to-1 Flop Bet jackpot. The Bonus Bet and the Flop Bet give you additional chances to win at poker even when you least expect it.

Put them all together, and you’ve got Triple Action when you play online Triple Action Hold’em Bonus Poker at Wild Jack Online Casino. Give it try, and triple your action and triple your fun and triple your chances of winning at Wild Jack today.
