Double Bonus Video Poker

by Gayle Mitchell

Double Bonus Video Poker sits in the middle of the popular Bonus trio, a lesson at Learn to Play Video Poker program.
While two pair and one pair of Jacks+ returns your bet with the same payout of 5 coins, four-of-a-kind Aces and quads of 2’s 3’s and 4’s offer increased payouts of 800 coins and 400 coins respectively.

The highlight of the game, however is a 50 coin payout for a full-house with the 10/7 full pay version.
10/7 in bold below , refers to a 10 coin return for a full-house when betting one-coin and 7 coin return for a flush. Therefore, max coin return of 50 and 35 respectively.

Following is a full-pay 10/7 Double Bonus Video Poker paytable.
The paytable illustrates specific winning hands and maximum coin return payout.

Best Strategy:

  • Two pair should be saved for the possibility of a generous full house payout of 50 coins.
  • Notice that the straight offers a better payout of 25 coins than Jacks+ or Bonus Jacks Video Poker. Your strategy should include holding 3 or 4 parts of a straight.
  • This VP game is the best bonus bet in the house, even with two pair only returning the bet.
    It boasts an overall payback percentage of 100.15%. 

This percentage is maintained with maximum coins per hand at a ‘full-pay’ machine and perfect strategy.

May all your VP choices turn out to be ‘Royalty’.
