Scarlet Pearl in Biloxi limits the play pteflop to 3X on their game. How much worse the expected value?

no idea but I would find a casino that doesnt do the equivalent of 6:5 blackjack for UTH.

The version of UTH that was releaaed by AGS is called Jackpot Hold Em.

The first community card is exposed immediately and the initial bet is capped at 3x.

Could it have been that game?

No this is regular UTH with a top play bet of 3X instead of 4X. I'm new to this game but it is planted in the majority of Biloxi casinos. Again how much does the short pay cost the punter??

Last I knew scarlet pearl has Heads up Holdem not Uth
They only allow a 3x raise. See the Wizards page on the game.

I am running the code for the house edge for UTH, with the single change that only check or 3x wagers are allowed on the first round. No 4x. This is a big program, it will take a couple of days to run. Maybe someone else can do it faster -- but I imagine some previous 4x wagers that were borderline may be "check' with 3x. From what I can tell so far in a speed test, this should be about 4 days of computer time on my I7 8 core box, running 4 threads concurrently in Cygwin.

If it's HUH, and I suspect Hunterhill is right, the 3x cap is the tradeoff for the fact that the Blind -- or Odds as it is called -- has a built-in bad beat feature.

Looked up this variant. 3X is offset by a bad beat bonus. So not the same game. Maybe a call to MS Gaming is in order

I just wasted way too much time scrolling through social media feeds and found nothing to confirm that Scarlet Pearl offers UTH. Their website lists Texas Hold Em Bonus and they have an old Heads Up Hold Em tutorial on youtube. The website could be wrong of course but OP does admit to being new to the game. I also lean towards Heads Up being the game in question.
