On February 22, 2016, sites on the iPoker Network, including Ladbrokes, began spreading the exciting hold’em variant known as Six-Plus Hold’em.
From a distance, Six-Plus Hold’em looks like the traditional hold’em that we all know and love, but it is actually played with a stripped deck of 36 cards because all of the , , , and are removed, leaving only through .
This stripped deck makes for a much faster-paced and exciting playing experience, one where the traditional hand rankings differ. Six-Plus Hold’em hands are ranked as shown below, in order of weakest to strongest:
- High card
- One pair
- Two pair
- Three of a kind
- Full house
- Four of a kind
- Straight flush
- Royal flush
If you have not tried playing Six-Plus Hold’em at Ladbrokes, now is the time to change that fact because the €30K Summer Rivers promotion is in full swing; in fact, it has to end on August 28, 2016.
There is a feature exclusive to Six Plus Hold’em tables that stores every river card you’re dealt at the tables into a jackpot bank. This means you can collect river cards, three at a time, to form winning combinations and receive entries to freeroll tournaments.
For example, if three of your hands reach the river, and the river cards are , , and , you will have three of a king and therefore qualify for a prize. If those three river cards were , , then you haven’t made a hand so win nothing.
River Collector Jackpot Payout
|Hold’em Payout||Buy-in Level||Ticket|
|Straight Flush/Straight/Three of a kind||NL10+||€1,000 Summer Daily|
|Perfect three of a kind||NL10/20||€5,000 Summer Rivers|
|Perfect three of a kind||NL50+||€25,000 Summer Rivers|
The €25,000 Summer Rivers is an all-in freeroll that takes place at 5:00 p.m. GMT on August 28, with the €5,000 Summer Rivers also being an all-in freeroll taking place on August 28, but at the slightly later time of 5:15 p.m.
Standard Texas hold'em games also have this feature, but Six Plus plays faster and often generates more action, therefore making seeing the river more likely
