Royal Hold 'Em is one of the most popular variations of Texas Hold 'Em. The key feature of Royal Hold 'Em is the use of a reduced deck of cards: instead of the usual 52, only 20 are involved in the distribution, with all the lower cards removed from the deck. You are left with Tens, Jacks, Queens, Kings and Aces. The tournament is held monthly.

Royal Hold 'Em relies on the same rules and betting rounds as classic Texas Hold 'Em, but with only the high cards involved, there is more betting, less folding and bigger winning hands... and, ultimately, more fun!

The game is played at highspeed for 5 players.
There are three rooms in the tournament:
1. Silver Crown: stack of 100,000 chips, blinds at 500/1K
2. Golden Crown: stack of 4,000,000 chips, blinds at 20K/40K
3. Diamond crown: stack of 100,000,000 chips, blinds at 500K/1M

The goal is to leave the table with triple the stack of chips; you are awarded a star once you do. You can earn up to 5 stars at each of the three levels (or rooms). For reaching the 5- and 10-star mark, the player gets unique gifts  that disappear in 7 days.
The player who collects all the 15 stars wins the main prize of the tournament—a customized trophy cup that remains in the "Rewards" section of the profile forever.

There is an ante in the tournament: a mandatory bet made by all the players before the cards are even dealt. Those who are currently "sitting out" the game also pay the ante regardless. Most often, it is equal to 1/2-1/8 of the small blind.

There is also a rake: a commission fee from the winnings. The rake is calculated based on a special formula but usually does not exceed 2%.

Please note that the hands played in Royal Hold ’Em do not affect your achievement statistics because the Royal Hold ’Em format implies better chances of playing higher-ranking hands. Most of the medals are only awarded in regular Hold ’Em games.
