Double Bonus Video Poker Review
Double Bonus Poker is a form of video poker that has been developed by Microgaming. Additional reward opportunities are presented with higher payouts for certain combinations. The highest of those is its jackpot, which is a healthy 4,000 coins when playing the maximum five coins per hand.
Many players enjoy video poker on a daily basis with its substantial winnings and payout rates. Microgaming has managed to make the game more entertaining by including an easy to use betting and options panel that can be used to make quick changed between rounds. For the most part, players who have played the standard video poker variation will find the game to be very similar as no additional wilds or other features appear. However, specific combinations reward much higher than the standard combinations, such as a round holding four aces along with a single 2, 3 or 4 will pay 2,000 coins.
Double Bonus Poker is available for fun or real money play and can be accessed with download, instant play on PC, or via Mobile software for iOS, Android and Windows devices. Other mobile devices can access the game with their browser as Microgaming has made it HTML5 compatible.
How it Works
As mentioned, for the most part, the game works exactly like standard video poker from Microgaming. Choose the coin value with eh plus and minus signs below the current currency value. More coins can be wagered, which results in multiplied payouts. Up to a total of five coins can be wagered in each hand, adding up to provide jackpots of 4,000 coins. Coin values range from $0.01 to $5.00 each, meaning a max bet up to $25.00 can be reached.
As mentioned, the bonus payouts require particular combinations be activated. This means players will need to have all the right cards shown to receive up to 2,000 coins for the bonus. The 4,000 coin jackpot will still be available, but where a combination of four aces and a two would payout a lower amount, here players will receive 2,000 coins. Other bonus combinations include any 4four of a kind and one ace that will reward 800 coins, any four of a kind with a 2, 3 or 4 pays 400 coins, and finally, four of a kind with any other card from five through to the King grants 250 coins.
The bonus winning opportunity is available with any currency value, but to trigger the benefits mentioned, five coins will be required per hand with any value. Players will only be able to activate winnings with a pair of jacks or better.
