Two-Way Royal Video Poker

Two-Way Royal is one such game that is yet to gain momentum among gaming communities.
The game is played like other video poker variants. The basic difference, as mentioned, is in the payout. A standard pay structure for Two-Way Royal is shown below. As you can see, the pay structure is different for a royal flush hand, wherein low and high royal flushes have different values.

Just as other video poker games, a player will be dealt 5 cards from a 52-card deck by the dealer or the machine. The player can choose to keep or discard any of the cards or all of them. The machine will replace your discarded cards at the draw. When you have decided which cards to discard and which ones to keep, you have to press the ‘hold’ button on the video screen, followed by the ‘draw’ button. In certain cases, the hold and draw buttons are combined. When you have pressed the draw button, you will receive your payout if you have a winning hand. The machine will indicate a winning hand on the video screen. However, in certain machines, a winning hand may not be indicated. The player would have to know the winning combinations in advance. The hands are played based on their corresponding payouts displayed on your screen. It is recommended that you find out the pay line of the winning cards before you start playing.
The betting is done with a minimum of 1 coin and a maximum of 5 coins. Players who look to make the maximum winnings usually bet with the maximum of 5 coins. The payouts for a winning hand will vary depending on the number of coins you have bet.
