Microgaming has a number of video poker games that you can play, and one that is really exciting is Double Bonus poker. The game has a smooth and simple look and feel: the graphics are good quality and the paytable is accessible directly on the game screen to help you keep in touch with the different hands and their payouts constantly. You play this game with a regular 52-card deck that does not have any jokers or wild cards. The minimum and maximum coin sizes are 0.25 and 5 respectively. You can bet a maximum of 5 coins at a time. The minimum and maximum bets are 25p and £25 respectively.
Place your bets by adjusting the coin size and number of coins you want to play for a game. Click the Deal button after you have placed your bets. You get a 5-card hand; you can retain cards from the hand by clicking on them. Click the Draw button to get fresh cards for the ones you do not hold and form your final hand. You get paid based on the hand you have. The standard hands in this game, in ascending order of payouts, are: Jacks or Better, 2 Pair, 3 of a Kind, Straight, Flush, Full House, 4 of a Kind - 5s through Ks, 4 of a Kind - 2s, 3s, 4s, 4 of a Kind - Aces, Straight Flush, and Royal Flush. Hitting a Royal Flush with a maximum bet placed gives you a cool 4000-coin jackpot.
One way of increasing your wins after each winning hand is using the Double feature. You can use this feature to double your winnings. Click the Double feature: on the resulting screen you get a 5-card hand with one card face-up. Choose any of the other 4 face-down cards; you double your winnings if the card you choose has a value higher than that of the face-up card. If the card has a lower value the Double feature ends and you lose your winnings from that round.
