Set-Up Of Video Poker Game
Over the years distinctions of video poker have bee created by tweaking the payout table. Now this has ceased to be exciting or interesting. Therefore last year Microgaming injected new life into video poker by creating a new format of the game called Level Up. This format began with Level Up Jacks Or Better and now has four games in all. The other three are Aces & Faces, Deuces Wild and Joker Poker. Each game is played just the same style as in its genuine avatar, simply the gambling mechanism has been made more sophisticated.
Level Up video poker is played over 4 hands, but the hands are not played concurrently. They comprise distinct stages and are played individually. Players advance to the better level only if they draw a winning blend in the lower stage. Or else it is game over. The player bets a specific amount with one fourth the wager for each level. If he loses in the first level then he forfeits the amount gambled for the upper stages also with no even playing. If he draws a winning blend he is paid out as per the payout table, but the amount is held in escrow. He then plays at the second stage. Here if he loses then he not only surrenders his whole bet but also his winnings of the initial stage. If he draws a winning blend he is paid at double the rate specified in the payout table, and again the winnings are put in escrow. Winning in the third round upshots in a payout of 4x and winning in the fourth round outcomes in a payout of 8x.
When the player wins in the fourth round he hoards not only the winnings for that round but the accrued amount held in escrow in addition. Entire hands are dealt at the launch. Each stage employs a distinct full deck.
Level Up video poker boasts two handy aspects. The first is the Free Ride Card. This is a card that is randomly dealt and emerges besides the dealt hand. If this card is dealt at a stage then the player will move to the next stage even if he does not draw a winning hand. The second aspect is the Auto Complete. A natural royal flush boasts a jackpot payout.
Occasionally, a player will be dealt a natural royal flush at an upper stage. But to cash that he need to first draw winning hands in the entire lower stages. If he fails to perform that then he has to bid farewell to the jackpot. In such a situation the Auto Complete aspect provides a compensatory payout.
