The look and game play is very similar to Bonus Video Poker and Double Bonus Video Poker but this game has some extra bonuses that will make this your favorite video poker game. So, what makes this video poker game different from the rest? Double Double Bonus Video Poker is played with a deck of 52 cards.

You can win with the traditional Royal Flush, Straight Flush and Full House. So far, it seems it is the same as all other online poker games, right? Well, let's take a look at what makes it different from the rest. First of all, there are no wild cards in this game and second of all there are five more winning combinations built into the game and these winning hands have much larger payouts. The new winning payouts, that beat a Straight Flush incidentally, are as follows: - Four Aces with any Two, Three or Four - Four Two's, Three's or Four's with any Ace, Two, Three or Four - Four of a Kind (Aces) - Four of a Kind (Two's, Three's or Four's) - Four of a Kind (Five's through to King's) More winning hands sounds great but there is even more to Double Double Video Poker. A great new bonus feature has been added where you have the chance to double your winnings with a doubling option! Once you win a hand, you can decide if you want to go for double. If you choose to go for double, the dealer will show you one card out of five, face up. You will then proceed to choose a card from the four that are left. Your winnings are doubled if your card is higher than the dealers. You can continue on doubling your winnings as long as you choose the higher card each time. Once you choose a lower card, your bonus game ends. With new winning combinations that have high payouts and a double bonus feature, you can see why this will easily become your favorite video poker game. As an added feature, which is great for the beginner video poker player, is that during your game play, cards that you should not switch, meaning the more valuable cards, will become highlighted. The choice is completely up to you whether to hold or switch but some helpful advise is always a plus. Online casinos have definitely upped the anti when it comes to Double Double Video Poker by adding more excitement to the game and giving all video poker players more ways to win big!
