Texas Hold’em Bonus was slowly replaced by Ultimate Texas Hold’em and similar games over the years. In 2017, there were a dozen Las Vegas casinos dealing 17 tables of the game. By the end of 2019, there were six left.
Now, Texas Hold’em Bonus is down to one installation in Las Vegas. It is dealt at Fremont. The minimum bet is $10. However, we have not seen the table open in years. It is likely that you can only play Texas Hold’em Bonus at Fremont during the busiest hours when the pit is fully open.
In August 2023, we visited Fremont. The table game pit was under renovation. The Texas Hold’em Bonus table was missing. We are unsure if it will return. This page will be updated as soon as we know.
