Unique RTG Online Casino Video Poker Games

September 24, 2009

If there is one drawback with online video poker games then it is that the games become monotonous after a while. Therefore all online gaming software providers introduce uniquely structured video poker games from time to time. Currently Real Time Gaming online casinos are offering three video poker games that are off the beaten track.

The first of the games being discussed in this article is Mystery Bonus Poker. The basic game is just like the normal Jacks or Better video poker game. However before the first hand is dealt to the player, a Mystery Bonus Poker hand is displayed on the right of the screen. If the final hand drawn by the player after replacing the cards is of the same ranking as the Mystery Bonus Poker then the player receives an additional payout based on the hand ranking of the Mystery Bonus Poker hand. For example, if the Mystery Bonus Poker hand is three of a kind then the player receives double payout if he draws a three of a kind hand. One payout is from the normal payout table and the other payout is for matching the Mystery Bonus Poker hand. This calls for a change in strategy. If the Mystery Bonus Poker hand has a low hand ranking, then it may be worth attempting to get the low hand ranking in order to benefit from the doubled payouts rather than try for a higher hand ranking at single payouts. Mystery Bonus Poker can be played in several multi-hand formats as well.

Pick ‘Em Poker is another unique video poker game that is offered at Real Time Gaming online casinos. It is structured differently from normal video poker games. In this video poker game the player is dealt two cards and two sets of three cards. The catch is that only the top card of each set of three cards is exposed. The remaining two cards of each set are hidden. Based on his two dealt cards and the top card of the two sets the player has to choose one set and discard the other. If the top card of either a set makes a winning combination in conjunction with the dealt cards then the choice is simple. However in practice this will rarely be so and that is the fun of this game. Because of the additional risk involved in Pick ‘Em Poker the pay table starts with Nines or Better instead of the usual Jacks or Better.

European Slot Poker does not use a normal deck of playing cards. The cards do not carry the four suits with the usual denominations. Instead the cards have symbols that are found in the classic three reel slots. Most of the symbols are the fruit symbols. The deck has 141 cards and is not shuffled and reused after each hand. Cards are dealt from the deck till the number is 25 or less. The number of cards left in the deck is displayed on the screen. The pay table is more like online slot game pay table and not like the usual poker hand ranking pay table. European Slot Poker has two bonus rounds. Every time four Plum, Watermelon, Bell, or Cherry symbols appear, players win a Fruit Bonus payout. In the Cherry Bonus round Each time two Cherry symbols appear, the Cherry Bonus meter registers an increase. When the meter is full a Cherry Bonus is awarded to the player.

These three unique video poker games can be played at Real Time Gaming (RTG) online casinos like Rushmore Casino, Club World Casino and Slots Oasis Casino.
