Video Poker Gamble Game: To Play Or Not To Play

Added: August 1, 2018 Bookmark and Share Commentscomments

Almost all online video poker games offer a gamble feature. Some online casino games suppliers refer to this as a double feature. This is an optional feature completely independent of the main video poker game. You do not have to activate it if you do not want to. However, you need to win the main video poker hand in order to play the gamble feature. You stake the payout won in the hope of multiplying it. But, you forfeit the payout totally if you lose the gamble game. This article explains how the video poker gamble game works and suggests strategies for single hand and multi hand variants.

When you activate the gamble game, you will be dealt five cards. The first card will be dealt face up and the other four cards will be dealt face down. You have to pick one of the cards that are dealt face down. If your chosen card is higher ranked than the face up card then the staked payout is doubled. Otherwise the staked payout is lost. Usually you can replay the gamble game with the amount won up to five times. The gamble game is so structured that it offers correct mathematical odds without any house edge.

When you win in single hand video poker games, the payout will at least equal to your bet. If you hit a higher ranked hand then the payout will be more. In the gamble game you get an average return of 100% at a maximum payout of 1 to 1. The best online video poker variants, like Jacks or Better and Deuces Wild, offer an average return of over 99% and with the possibility of winning much higher payouts. So it may make more sense to stake your payout in another video poker hand. Also factor in the fact that the video poker game is more challenging and exciting.

The strategy is somewhat different for multi hand online video poker games. You place identical bets for each hand. Some hands may win while other hands may lose. Usually the total payout from all hands will be less than the total amount bet. This gives a reason to opt for the gamble game. You activate the gamble game to try to recover the wagered amount. You may even lose whatever little you have won in the process. But if you are lucky enough to recover your initial wager then do not play the gamble game any further.
