Ultimate X Five Play Draw Poker offers ten hands of Video Poker action with each play.
Press DEAL to start the game. Hold any or all of the five face-up cards in the bottom hand by clicking on them or using the keyboard shortcuts 1, 2, 3, 4, and/or 5. Held cards appear face-up in all five hands.
Press DRAW to receive replacement cards in all active hands. Replacement cards are dealt from one separate deck for each hand, excluding the five initially dealt cards. Winning hands are paid according to the paytable. Win amounts are paid based on the ending hand.
In addition to traditional multi-hand poker action, the Ultimate X feature adds high volatility excitement. Earn award multipliers for each winning hand that are applied to wins received in the next game. The outcome of the winning hand determines the multiplier, up to 12x for certain paytables.
Click the BONUS button to enable the Ultimate X feature, which places a side bet equal to the main bet. A multiplier earned on a given hand is applied to the same hand only on the next play of the same paytable at the same bet amount. For cash play, an earned multiplier persists until played, even between play sessions weeks apart.
The Ultimate X feature can be turned on and off by clicking the BONUS button in between games. Turning the Ultimate X feature off does not remove any previously-won multipliers that were awarded while the Ultimate X feature was turned on.
For example, here is a sample multiplier table for Jacks or Better:
|4 of a Kind||3x|
|3 of a Kind||4x|
|Jacks or Better||2x|
Each paytable's multipliers can be found in the See Pays menu of that game.
In Video Poker, the goal is to build the best hand possible relative to the paytable.
|Royal Flush||10, J, Q, K, A of one suit||10S-JS-QS-KS-AS|
|Straight Flush||5 cards of consecutive ranks in one suit||AC-2C-3C-4C-5C|
|5 of a Kind||5 cards of one rank||Wild-8C-8D-8H-8S|
|4 of a Kind||4 cards of one rank||9C-9D-9S-9H-3C|
|Full House||3 cards of one rank, 2 cards of another rank||AH-AC-AS-8D-8H|
|Flush||5 cards of one suit||8H-9H-2H-JH-AH|
|Straight||5 cards of consecutive ranks||3H-4H-5S-6D-7D|
|3 of a Kind||3 cards of one rank||6S-6D-6C-AD-JC|
|2 Pair||2 cards of one rank, 2 cards of another rank||9D-9H-7H-7S-4D|
|Kings or Better||2 cards of one rank (K, or A)||KD-KC-5C-4S-2H|
|Jacks or Better||2 cards of one rank (J, Q, K, or A)||JD-JC-9H-8C-2S|
Some paytables are based on the use of one or more wild cards:
Press the SEE PAYS button on the bottom of the game screen to access:
The paytable indicates the value for each winning outcome. The values are shown in currency and for each available bet amount. When initially loaded, the paytable page highlights the wins associated with the current bet amount. To see wins for other bet sizes, press the UP button or the DOWN button. Changing the example bet size in the paytable screen does not change the active wager.
Select different quality settings to optimize gameplay experience.
Select speed of deal and draw animations.
Deal/Draw/Skip on Space
Enable or disable use of the SPACE bar to deal and draw cards, to skip award rollups, and to speed through card draw animations.
Change Background Colour
Change the background colour of the game.
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.
Earned multipliers only apply to the paytable and bet amount at which they were originally earned. For cash play, earned multipliers persist until played.
The first time a given paytable is played with the Ultimate X feature enabled at a specific bet amount, all active multipliers are effectively 1x.
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 96.63% to 99.39%. For the specific version of this game actually operating on PlayNow, the long-term theoretically expected payback is 98.37%. 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:
In the case of a dealt Royal Flush that is automatically held and awarded, the Transaction History only shows:
The base hand, which is the bottom 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.
