Double Double Bonus Poker
If there’s one type of casino game that’s here to stay, its online video poker, or what has more recently become mobile video poker. I’ve said it before and I’m saying it again – I adore video poker. It’s often perceived as a somewhat complicated game because people see the table that accompanies it and then they think that if they don’t have an understanding of traditional poker, that there’s no point in playing it at all. Double Double Bonus Video Poker is one of the many variations of video poker and its popularity is certainly not in question. Many of the big casino software companies have all had a go and created their own versions – Microgaming, Playtech, Realtime Gaming, Betsoft, Play n Go – the whole caboodle. I would say that if you’re going to play this relatively simple game, try out the Microgaming version. They seem to have had the most experience with online video poker, having created easily 50 variations. So let’s get down to playing the game.
Playing Double Double Poker
Like many of the video poker variations, Double Double Bonus Video Poker takes place between you and the dealer and is played with a deck of 52 cards. Five cards are dealt your way, in what can be the first of two hands – depending on what you receive and the choices you make. Once you receive your five cards, give it a good look and compare it against the chart of winning hands and combinations. If you’ve got anything that resembles a win, I would advise keeping it, even if it’s a pair. However, and this will happen often enough, should you receive a mixed bag with no monetary value, click on the cards you’d like to keep, making sure to aim for the higher ones more often than you would for the lower ones. Once you’ve chosen what’s staying, and you can choose up to three cards to keep, the dealer will take away the ones you didn’t select and replace them with new cards. This is the final hand you’ll receive and it’s either hit or miss.
