Double Bonus Video Poker - Probability and Return Tables

Reason #4 why the Wizard likes Bovada: One-Stop Shopping

Bovada offers the triple crown of gambling: casino, poker, and sports. Many other casinos have tacked on poker as an afterthought, and many poker rooms have tacked on a casino as an afterthought, and the lack of attention shows, sometimes painfully. And very few of these sites let you make sports wagers.

But Bovada doesn't just offer all three, they do each one well, and everything's integrated. It's easy to play all three off one deposit, off just one account.

Another nice thing about Bovada is that you don't need a separate account to play casino games with fake money. In fact you do not even need an account for that at all, you can just click over there and play. Finally, Bovada usernames are only six or seven characters long making them possible to remember. By contrast some competitors' usernames are extremely long and cumbersome.

The next pay table is a short pay version of true 10/7 double bonus. It pays 239, instead of 250, for a straight flush or four 5-K, with five coins bet. The reason for 239 is to keep the win under $1200, thus avoiding a W2-G form, for a $5 bet ($5 × 239 = $1195).
