How To Play
The game is very simple, it is based upon five-card draw and all you have to do is build the best possible poker hand. In this version of the game, you will always be playing 25 hands simultaneously.
At the start of a round, you first need to set your coin size and then choose how many coins to bet per hand, from one to five. If you look at the game’s paytable then you will see that there are five columns of payouts next to each type of hand. These columns correspond to how many coins you are betting, so if you bet one coin then you are playing for the first column, if you bet three coins you are playing for the third column, and so on. You can use the ‘Bet One’ button to add a single coin to your bet or the ‘Bet Max’ button to quickly bet five coins and deal the cards.
After setting your bet click on ‘Deal’ to receive your first five cards. You will see that the bottom row of cards are dealt and if they contain a winning hand then those cards are automatically held. You then need to click on the remaining cards that you wish to hold. Any cards that you hold in this bottom hand are held across the remaining 24 hands. After you have selected which cards to hold click on ‘Deal’ again, and the remaining cards will be replaced across all 25 hands. Any winning hands are then paid out and you can begin the next round.
The lowest winning hand is Jacks or Better, it is followed by Two Pairs, Three of a Kind, Straight, Flush, Full House, Straight Flush, Four 2’s Through 10’s, Four Jacks, Queens or Kings, Four Aces and a Royal Flush.
If you win then you are offered the chance to ‘Double’ or ‘Double Half’ your winnings. This means that you can gamble all your winnings or just half of your winnings and attempt to double the amount you gambled. You will be shown a face up card and need to choose from four facedown cards to find one that is higher in value. If you guess correctly then you can repeat repeating the process until you reach the game’s gamble limit.
The payouts change according to how many coins you have bet. If you are betting one coin per hand then Jacks or Better pays 1x, Two Pairs pays 1x, Three of a Kind pays 3x, Straight pays 4x, Flush pays 5x, Full House pays 9x, Straight Flush pays 50x, Four 2s through 10s pays 50x, Four Jacks, Queens or Kings pays 80x, Four Aces pays 160x and a Royal Flush pays 250x.
If you are playing with more than one coin then the payouts are multiplied by how many coins you have bet. For instance, if you are playing with three coins then Flush would pay 15x (3 x 5). This rule is true for all hands except the Royal Flush, which offers a boosted payout of 4000x if you are betting five coins per hand.
