bonus poker- Video Poker With Big Bonuses
bonus poker is like Jacks or Better, but with special payout lines for different variations of four of a kind. bonus poker usually comes in two formats – Double Bonus and double double bonus. In Double Bonus the payouts differ with different denominations of four of a kind, the fifth card being inconsequential. In Double Double Bonus the fifth card also comes into play. Though the payout tables for both formats are different but the method of playing is the same.
The denomination of the wager and the number of coins are selected by the player using the appropriate buttons. The player then clicks the deal button and five cards are dealt from a single deck. The player selects the cards he wants to hold. The player should hold those cards that would lead to higher ranking poker hands. The player need not hold any card if he so wants. The draw button is clicked to replace the remaining cards. The payout for the final hand is made using the appropriate payout table.
The payout for the hands that do not have four of a kind variants is the same for Double Bonus and Double Double Bonus. This is given below. Jacks or better pays out at 1 to 1, two pairs pays out at 1 to 1, three of a kind that pays out as 3 to 1, straight that pays out as 5 to 1, flush that pays out as 7 to 1, full house that pays out as 10 to 1, straight flush that pays out as 50 to 1 and royal flush pays out as 250 to 1. A royal flush with 5 coins wagered pays out as 800 to 1. Hence it makes extra sense to take that extra chance and wager with the maximum five coins.
The payouts for four of a kind variants are different in both formats. In the Double Bonus formats these are four of a kind with fives to kings that pays out at 50 to 1, four of a kind with twos, threes and fours that pays out at 80 to 1 and four of a kind with aces that pays out at 160 to 1. The Double Double Bonus format has many more four of a kind paylines. These are four of a kind with fives to kings that pays out at 50 to 1, four of a kind with twos, threes and fours that pays out at 80 to 1, four of a kind with aces that pays out at 160 to 1, four of a kind with twos, threes and fours with the fifth card being an ace that pays out at 160 to 1 and four of a kind with aces with the fifth card being a two, three or four that pays out at a whopping 400 to 1.
bonus poker is a video poker game with one of the highest returns of 99%. The five coin option gives a return of just over 100% because of the enhanced payout of the royal flush.
