Multihand Version of Double Bonus Poker
Realtime Gaming developed this Double Bonus Poker multihand variant of online video poker which allows up to fifty two hands that can be played simultaneously. The game is similar to the video poker variant, Jacks or Better where the minimum winning amount is paid out for being dealt a pair of jacks. The maximum win of 4 000 coins is paid out for holding a royal flush.
All winning amounts can be doubled up with the Double Bonus Poker multihand double up feature. In this feature, four cards are dealt face down and one needs to be selected and revealed to be a higher value than the card that the dealer is showing. The win is doubled if the card is higher and the game can continue as long as the cards chosen continue to be of a greater value. The typical poker combinations form the winning hands but the game features unique bonus hands that are ranked quite high. These include four of a kind aces; four of a kind two, three or four cards and then four of a kind five through to king cards.
Betting on the Video Poker Game
Up to fifty two hands can be chosen for each round and the selection can be made at the top of the Double Bonus Poker multihand screen. One to five coins can be bet on each of the selected hands. The bet one button places one coin on each hand at a time while the bet max button places all five coins on each hand and automatically deals the first cards. Each coin comes in adjustable sizes that range in value. Each hand will however have the same number of coins with the same value of each coin.
Basic Rules on How to Play
Once the bets are placed five cards are dealt face up into the position of the main hand. All the other hands in play are dealt with face down cards. Each hand uses a fifty two card deck that is shuffled after each round. Any of the five face up cards can be held by clicking on them, these should show promising poker values for best results.
The unselected cards will be discarded when the deal button is clicked and they will be replaced with new cards. All the other hands in play will then show the same selected cards and have cards dealt into the remaining positions. Any winning poker values for any of the hands will be paid out for according to the Double Bonus Poker multihand pay table.
Special Game Features and Functions
Apart from the basic play function buttons, Double Bonus Poker multihand by Realtime Gaming offers a player’s option function where multiple features can be adjusted. These include the speed of the game, the volume of the sound effects and the game mode like full screen and so on.
The software allows the game to be playable for free and for real money by downloading or playing instantly in a web browser.
If none of the five cards dealt are worth holding then they can all be discarded which is unlike most online video poker games.
