Bonus Poker Deluxe is based on Bonus Poker, and its name suggests that it’s a more complex version. The opposite is actually true - what gives Bonus Poker its twist is that higher payouts are made for certain hands than are seen in other Video Poker editions, and while this is still true for Bonus Poker Deluxe the payout structure is actually simplified.
In Bonus Poker a higher payout is given to any 4 of a Kind hand, but more is paid to Aces than any other combination, and more is paid to 4 2s, 3s or 4s than 4 5s or 4 of anything higher. In Bonus Poker Deluxe, a single big amount is paid for any 4 of a kind hand. The only hand that gives higher returns is a Royal Flush.
Essentially, then, Bonus Poker Deluxe plays out in exactly the same way as the original Jacks or Better Video Poker game with 2 key differences: 4 of a Kind hands pay out much more, and to accommodate this a hand of 2 Pairs pays out a lot less. Rather than a 2:1 return a hand of 2 Pairs pays out even money, and since this hand comes up about 10% of the time this adds a lot of volatility to the game.
Of course, the highs and lows of Bonus Poker Deluxe make it very exciting to play too! It’s a good choice when you want something a little more advanced than Jacks or Better, but don’t feel like getting too complicated.
