Rules & Additional Information
Misuse or malfunction voids all pays and plays.
Cards are dealt from one deck of 52 standard playing cards per hand, shuffled for each game. For Joker Poker only, cards are dealt from one deck of 52 standard playing cards, plus one Joker.
Only the highest winner is paid per hand.
Wins from two or more hands are added to the total amount paid.
If a natural Royal Flush (no wild cards) is dealt on the initial deal, all cards are automatically held, and the Royal Flush win is paid for all hands.
If any other winning hand is dealt on the initial deal, no cards are automatically held.
Wins are shown in currency and are based on the size of the Bet Per Hand.
In accordance with fair gaming practices required in most legal jurisdictions worldwide, all cards come from a fair deck that has been randomly shuffled. Thus every card remaining in a given deck is equally likely to be the next card dealt.
The expected payback reflects the theoretical return across a very large number of plays by numerous players over an extended period of time. For this game type, the long-term theoretically expected payback can potentially be from 97.29% to 99.54%. For the specific version of this game actually operating on PlayNow, the long-term theoretically expected payback is 98.45%. The SEE PAYS associated with each Video Poker paytable displays the expected payback for that specific paytable. The results for any given player over a play session can vary widely from this long-term, expected average in either direction. The fewer the number of games played, the wider the normal variance of actual payback that may be experienced.
The expected payback value is also based upon correct player choices for any game that involves main game and/or bonus game play strategy.
Outcomes of prior cash-play hands available in player history indicate:
- Per-hand wager
- Total amount wagered per game (all hands combined)
- Initial 5 cards dealt to base hand
- Cards held in all hands
- Final cards for each hand
- Award type / win amount for each winning hand (if any)
- Total win amount (if any) per game
In the case of a dealt Royal Flush that is automatically held and awarded, the Transaction History only shows:
- Total wager
- Initial 5 cards dealt to base hand
- Total win amount
The base hand, which is the lowest hand on the playfield, is labelled Hand 1. Remaining hands are labelled based on position and deal order, from bottom to top and from left to right.
