Coliseum Poker is something entirely different in the online video poker gaming world. In principle, this title is the same as any other video poker, although in practice it is not. The main difference is that this video poker title has a theme, and jackpot. Yes, some other video poker titles CAN have themes, but they seldom ever do. The theme here is Ancient Rome. Coliseum Poker is designed and developed by Games OS.
How to play
If you’ve played video poker before, you’ll be acutely aware that what you need to do is create the best poker hand that you possibly can, in order to win. There’s no ifs, buts and maybes about it, it really is that simple. With your bet placed, you can click on the deal button to commence playing.
Once the five cards are out, the player must decide which cards they wish to hold, before hitting the draw button to replace all non-held cards. In this video poker game, the computer will actually “recommend” which cards you should hold, which is a welcome feature.
If you win a hand, you can choose to double your money or collect it. If you choose to enter the gamble feature, you will be greeted with 5 cards, the first of which is overturned. You must choose one of the four remaining cards, and if you guess a higher card than the one uncovered, you’ll double your winnings. You can do this up to 5 times.
Wagering and prizes
Wagering is a very simple process in the Coliseum Poker game. The chip prize is usually fixed in this game, so you can wager anything from 1.00 up to 5.00 per hand. If you play the maximum bet, you can go for the jackpot, if you’re lucky. The jackpot is progressive, so it rises with each game that is played.
Jackpots aside, the standard paying hands in Coliseum Poker include Jacks or Better, Two Pair, Three of a Kind, Straight, Flush, Full House, Four of a Kind, Straight Flush or a Royal Flush. Minimum pay-outs are worth 1 coin for Jacks or Better (with the minimum bet), whilst playing with the maximum bet could see you win the aforementioned jackpot with a Royal Flush.
The theme isn’t the only thing that is unique and nice in this game. The gamble round is a lot easier to win than in some other games. Provided that the card on show is a low one, you shouldn’t have problem beating the double up game at least once!
