Super Double Bonus Video Poker

by Gayle Mitchell

Super Double Bonus Video Poker is one of my favorite Triple or Five multi-hand VP games.

Who wouldn’t smile with a 600-coin award when given 3 or 5 attempts at it?
Deal me three Kings, Queens or Jacks in the bottom row with a fourth in any or all of the other lines or let’s get very greedy and just deal the quad outright for an easy hold.

Another feature is that respect is paid to the straight flush with a better-than-average payout of 400 coins.

This 8/5 full paytable definitely aims to please the ‘high card’ set.
8/5, noted in bold below, refers to an 8 coin return for a full-house when betting one-coin and 5 coin return for a flush. Therefore, max coin return of 45 and 30 respectively.

The Learn to Play Video Poker paytable below illustrates specific winning hands and maximum coin return payout.

5 coins
15 coins
20 coins
25 coins
40 coins
250 coins
400 coins
600 coins
800 coins
400 coins
4000 coins

The average return is over 99%.
This percentage is maintained with maximum coins per hand at a ‘full-pay’ machine with perfect strategy.

Super Double Bonus Strategy: While you are on constant watch for face cards, you should also be concentrating on straight flush possibilities for the higher payout value of 400 coins.

  • As the full-house pay of 40 coins is lower with Super Double Bonus Video Poker, I go for holding one pair only when dealt two pair of face cards. A small risk, in my opinion, for the 600-coin award.
  • This same small risk applies if dealt two pair and only one is Jacks+.
  • Two non-paying pairs (both less than Jacks+) must be held for the sure payout.
  • Let’s not forget that Aces offer a fine return of 800 coins and should not be ignored in your quest for quad faces. 

Until next we meet, may all your VP choices turn out to be ‘Royalty’ or ‘Royalty Quads’.
