UltimateBet - Play Royal Hold'em
If you know how to play Texas Hold'em, you're ready to play Royal Hold'em. The hand-ranking is the same. The structure is the same. And the thrill you'll get from playing it for the first time is the same - if not greater. So what's different? The cards. They've taken a regular deck and tossed out any card that can't make a Royal Flush. The only cards you'll find in a Royal Hold'em deck are Tens, Jacks, Queens, Kings and Aces. This new 20-card deck brings some pretty impressive hands. Straights? A dime a dozen. Full houses? See 'em every hand. Flushes are rare because you need all five suited cards in the deck to hit. But who misses flushes when it's raining quads!
