Bonus Poker is one of the many variants of Video Poker that we offer at Mummys Gold Casino, and it’s one of the most popular. It’s very similar to Jacks or Better, the original game, but with a twist that makes it unique. This makes it perfect for those who have been playing for a while and want to take the next step.
Like all variations of Video Poker, the objective in Bonus Poker is to get the best 5-card hand that you can, according to standard Poker rankings, with the lowest-paying combination being a pair of Jacks. The difference with Bonus Poker is that any 4 of a Kind hand is paid out a lot more handsomely than in other versions of the game.
A Royal Flush is still the highest-paying hand, but this is followed by 4 Aces, then 4 2s, 3s or 4s, and then 4 of any other card. This will influence your strategy, of course, and means you stand a better chance of walking away with a substantial payout in this version of Video Poker than in many others.
To start the round, you’ll place a bet of 1 to 5 coins and will then be dealt your 5 cards from a standard deck. You need to set which ones you want to keep and which you want to replace, and this will be done in a single turn. Your payout is calculated according to what your final cards are and how much you bet in the first place.
The easiest way to approach any type of Video Poker is to use a Strategy Table. Look at where your collection of cards falls on the listings below, and exchange any cards in the hand that are not specifically mentioned:
