Here in Florida at Palm Beach Kennel Club, there is an Ultimate game with slightly different rules. In order to win the trips bet, you have to beat the dealer. The pay table is as follows - straight - 6, flush - 8, full house 10. The rest remains the same. The blind bonus is 2-1 for a flush instead of 3-2. What does this do to the house advantage? Is this a better or worse game than the regular one?

Good timing docjsj! The Wizard just did an analysis on the FL card room Trips bet here.

I'm not sure what the effect of changing the Blind paytable has. Seems like increasing the flush payout would decrease the house edge unless amounts for other hands were reduced. I just looked up the UTH paytables at the Daytona Beach card room. It looks like they actually pay even money for a flush and reduce the royal to 200/1!
