Good news for video poker fans: Miami Club Casino has just released its new Bonus Poker game. This new variant features big payouts on certain fours-of-a-kind and can be played with up to four hands at a time. With proper strategy, this is one of the few games online that actually has a slight advantage for the player! Check out our tips below, and then head over to Miami Club Casino to try it today.
Playing Bonus Poker
When you start a game of Bonus Poker at Miami Club Casino, you'll get to choose your bet denomination and number of coins you want to bet. We recommend betting 5 coins in order to receive a much higher payout for the royal flush (800x your bet instead of just 250x).
The game will start by dealing you 5 cards from a standard 52-card deck. You can choose whether you want to hold or keep each card. Then, all non-held cards will be replaced by those remaining in the deck. If you are playing the multi-hand version, the remaining deck will be re-shuffled for each hand.
The "Bonus" in Bonus Poker
Miami Club Casino's Bonus Poker paytable is the best one on the web. It is based on the traditional 9/6 paytable for Jacks or Better, one of the most common and high-paying video poker variants around. However, there are bonus payouts on fours-of-a-kind made with aces, deuces, threes, or fours. These extra payouts are enough to tilt the odds slightly in your favor if you use proper strategy!
Like all of the Rival video poker games, Bonus Poker offers you the chance to boost your winnings in a double-up minigame. Hit "Double" to start it. The game will then deal 5 cards randomly from a 52-card deck and reveal the leftmost one. Your job is to pick one that is higher. If you do, your winnings will be doubled. If not, you'll lose them all.
In order to get good payouts from this game, you'll need to put in quite a bit of practice. If you want the highest long-term payout possible, you will want to put the game's paytable through a video poker strategy analyzer. This can take some time and the results can be difficult to interpret, so here's a simple guide to get you started.
Always play 5 coins. For a given hand, hold the highest possible combination. A "high card" is defined as a Jack, Queen, King, or Ace.
