 Bonus 6 - Poker Rules 

Bonus 6 - Poker Rules

The Play -- Bonus 6. Bonus 6 is a patented poker variation game, the rights to which on November 1, 1998 were owned by Thomas F. Perkins, of Atlanta, Georgia, and which may be transferred or assigned. Bonus 6 must be played according to the following rules:

  1. Bonus 6 may be played only on tables displaying the Bonus 6 table layout. A single deck of fifty-two cards will be used. Each player may play only one hand following each shuffle of the deck. Players do not play against the dealer or against any other player, but win if their hands qualify for payment according to the pay schedule which shall be displayed on table signage or as part of the table layout. Players may not discuss or expose their hands during play.
  2. Before receiving any cards, each player must place a wager in the designated “ante” wagering area in front of the player’s position. The amount of each ante shall be within the table limit range to be determined by the retail licensee, but not exceeding five dollars, and shall be posted at the table. If the retail licensee does not require a minimum wager, no table signage is required.
  3. At the discretion of the retail licensee, a player who wishes to tip the dealer by making a bet for the dealer shall place the tip next to the player’s ante wager. At the discretion of the retail licensee, a player may be permitted, but shall not be required, to place an additional tip bet for the dealer each time the player makes an additional wager. A tip bet shall not be required to be in any minimum amount, except that the second and third tip bets, if any, shall be in amounts equal to the amount of the tip bet on the ante. Dealer tip bets placed on winning hands shall be paid at the same odds as players’ bets on winning hands. No insurance fee or bonus card fee shall be required or accepted on behalf of the dealer as part of the tip.
  4. At the same time that the ante wager is placed, each player may pay an optional insurance fee by placing one-half the amount of the ante wager in the designated “insurance” area in front of the player’s position. Payment of the insurance fee will give the player the right to exercise the option to receive a bonus sixth card later in the game.
  5. Immediately prior to each round of play, the dealer shall shuffle and cut the cards, and shall burn the top card. The dealer shall deal two cards to each player, face down, one card at a time in clockwise rotation around the table, beginning with the player to the left of the dealer. When the final player has received the player’s second card, a single card will be dealt to the dealer’s position, face up, and will serve as a community card for all players.
  6. An incorrect number of cards dealt to any player constitutes a misdeal with respect to that player only, voiding the player’s wager(s) and insurance fee. An exposed card does not constitute a misdeal. The dealer will turn the card over and continue to deal. If a player’s card falls from the table, that player’s hand is dead and the player’s wager(s) and insurance fee is void.
  7. After each player has received their first two cards, the player may fold or may play the hand. To continue play, the player must place an additional bet equal to the player’s ante bet. To fold, the player will discard the player’s cards in front of the player’s position. The dealer collects the cards, the ante wagers, the tip bets (if any), and the insurance fees (if any) from the players who have folded.
  8. When all wagers have been placed, the dealer shall burn the top card then deal a third card to each player. After each player has received their third card, the player may fold or may play the hand. To continue play, the player must place an additional bet equal to the ante bet. To fold, the player will discard the player’s cards in front of the player’s position. The dealer collects the cards, the wagers, the tip bets, and the insurance fees (if any) from the players who have folded.
  9. When all wagers have been placed, the dealer shall burn the top card then deal a fourth card to each player. After each player has received their fourth card, the player shall take one of these actions:
    1. A player holding a winning hand (a hand qualifying for payment according to the payment schedule) shall tuck the player’s cards under the final wager. The dealer shall collect the insurance fee, if any. A player holding a winning hand may not attempt to improve the hand by receiving a fifth dealt card, but must play the five card hand (the four cards dealt to the player combined with the community card).
    2. A player who does not have a winning hand and who did not pay the insurance fee shall discard the player’s hand in front of the player’s position. The dealer shall collect the cards, the wagers, and the tip bets (if any) from the players who have folded.
    3. A player who does not have a winning hand, and who paid the insurance fee but does not wish to receive a fifth dealt card, shall discard the player’s hand in front of the player’s position. The dealer shall collect the cards, the wagers, the tip bets, and the insurance fees from the players who have folded.
    4. A player who does not have a winning hand, but who paid the insurance fee described in (4) above and wishes to receive a fifth dealt card, shall pay a bonus card fee equal to the amount of the ante. The dealer shall burn the top card and beginning with the player to the dealer’s left the dealer shall expose each player’s hand. The dealer shall verify that the hand is not a winning hand, and will deal a fifth card, face down, to the player. The dealer will then collect the insurance and Bonus 6 fees from the player, and will continue in like manner with all remaining players at the table. If the dealer determines that a player holds a winning five card hand, including the community card, a fifth card will not be dealt to the player, and the dealer will tuck the player’s hand under the ante wager. The dealer shall collect the insurance fee from the player, and shall push the Bonus 6 fee back to the player.
  10. The dealer will expose each player’s final card, beginning with the player to the right of the dealer, and working counter-clockwise around the table. For each player, either the cards and wagers on non-winning hands will be collected, or the best five-card winning poker hand formed from the cards dealt to the player combined with the community card will be identified and will be paid.
  11. Only the highest ranked hand held by a player shall be paid as a winning hand. Hands shall be settled and paid according to one of the following pay schedule options:
