Louisiana Double video poker is based on Jacks or Better. There are a few differences in this game from Jacks or Better that we will go over. The objective of the game is to try for the best five card hand that you can possibly get in which you have a Pair of Jacks or Better in the game.
Louisiana Double Poker is played like the other video poker games, but with a deck of fifty-three cards instead of the standard fifty-two card deck. The fifty-third card is not a joker but the double card.
How to play the game?
it is important that players have a basic understanding and knowledge of poker, or this game can get very confusing. It is played with 53 playing cards, instead of a typical 52, the extra card is the bonus card for the game. The Louisiana Double Poker game is a variation of Jacks or Better poker, and the game begins with players being dealt 5 cards. The possible winning hands can be seen at the top of the screen, and the computer will help you with any winning combinations. Players will be given 5 cards, and the computer will HOLD any cards that it feels gives you the best chance of winning from before the next set of cards are dealt. Players can go against the grain though and hold any card(s) they feel will potentially help them win the next set of cards. After all, cards are held, players must select the draw button, this will deal a new set of cards and will be your final combination of cards and any wins will be highlighted on the pay table. The size of payouts depends on which winning combination appears if any, and a number of coins you are playing with per game, Players can play between 1-5 coins and the maximum payout is a neat 2,500 coins.
Remember the special extra card we were speaking of? Well, this is it. This card, covered by the Louisiana Double Poker symbol, will have the ability to double any winnings when it appears in the final selection of cards. However, these cards will only double any 4 card winning combinations.
Double Your Winnings
There is another way for players to double their winnings and keep on doubling them, by using the Double button. Players will see one unturned card, and there will be 4 more unrevealed ones, to double your winnings, you must select a card that is of a higher value than the original displayed card. Winnings can repeatedly be doubled, but be careful, when you lose, you lose all winnings!
