Video Poker - Double Pay Poker

Reason #2 why the Wizard likes Bovada: No-hassle practice games

Most online casinos spend more effort trying to separate you from your money than they do trying to give you a good experience. They have all kinds of popup windows, they usually make you download their software, and if they do offer play-in-browser games then you have to register an account before you can play. And if you register they start sending you emails trying to get you to deposit real money.

But Bovada is different. They have no popup windows at all, and their practice games play right in your browser, with no download, and no registration required. You don't even have to give up your email address. It couldn't be simpler: just one click and you're playing the game.

I wish all online casinos showed this much respect for their players. Other casinos practically ask for your first born child to play for free. Meanwhile Bovada is patient and does not twist anybody's arm to play for real money. You can play as long as you like for free with no obligation. The real-money games are available if that's your preference, but if not, you can play the free practice games for as long as you like without hassle.

Introduction

Double Pay Poker is a common video poker variant in which the player bets on both the deal and the draw. The pay tables on the draw are standard video poker tables that are found elsewhere in my video poker section. This section shall address only the pay tables on the deal. The returns on the draw hand tend to be within 1% of the deal returns, assuming optimal strategy. To get a combined return average the deal return found here and look up the draw return in my section on deuces wild, double bonus, double double bonus, or triple double bonus.
