This video poker title is pretty straight forward in terms of design, although it does have some rather unique hands and rules which make it different from other types of video poker games you may have played before. Real Time Gaming’s (RTG) Double Jackpot Video Poker is flexible enough to allow you to bet large sums of cash, and isn’t necessarily for those players operating on shoestring budgets. It is nonetheless worth a look, if you get a chance.
How to play
After placing their bet, players will start by having 5 cards dealt to them. As with all video poker games, they must then decide which of these cards they wish to discard, and which are worth keeping. By clicking on those cards, the player makes that decision. New cards will then replace those which are discarded.
The poker hand is then complete, and the final hand will be weighed against the pay-table to see if there is a match. If there is, a win will be paid out. You do not have to compete against a dealer, or any other player in this game.
In Double Jackpot Video Poker players can win with additional hands which aren’t present in standard poker.
Wagering and prizes
Wagering on Double Jackpot Video Poker isn’t cheap. Players can use the bet button to bet between 1 and 5 credits per hand, making it rather expensive for those players operating on minimal budgets.
The more coins you wager, the better the pay-outs in this slot. Paying hands include Jacks or Better, 2 Pair, 3 of a Kind, Straight, Flush, Full House, Four 2s-10s, Four Kings, Queens, or Jacks, Four Kings, Queens or Jacks with an Ace, King, Queen, or Jack, 4 Aces, 4 Aces with a King, Queen, or Jack, Straight Flush, or a Royal Flush. The latter can be worth as much as 4,000 coins on the maximum bet.
The surplus of hands in Double Jackpot Power gives you plenty of different ways to win. If you can afford to stretch your budget a bit and play this game, then you won’t be disappointed with the extra ways to win. Being an RTG developed video poker game, though, this one is not as commonly found as you might like it to be.
