Is Jacks or Better just not quite unique enough for you? Does Aces and Faces dilute the purity of video poker just a bit too much in your opinion? If you’re looking for a game that’s just a little bit different from these two yet offers all the fun of an easy-to-learn video poker game, then 2 Ways Royal might just be exactly what you’re looking for!
2 Ways Royal information
2 Ways royal is structured like a lot of the other video poker games out there - the goal is to make the best poker hand possible with the cards you are dealt. The only twist here is that there is another unique, high-scoring hand that you can make that is not available in other games. This is the 'Lo Royal Flush,' a 2-3-4-5-6 straight of cards which are all of the same suit. This funky, new addition is worth as much as the royal flush. It is also gives this game its catchy moniker.
How to play 2 Ways Royal
Your aim here is to make the best poker hand possible, while bearing in mind that you have the option of going for that 'Lo' royal flush. 2 Ways Royal is played with a standard 52 card deck.
First, make your bet. You can tweak the settings such that the highest possible bet is $25 and the lowest is a measly $.01. Second, click on deal and hope the dealer gives you a good hand. Once you receive your hand, pick which cards you would like to hold on to. Remember to give the pay table above your cards a glance before making your decision. You then receive new cards for each of those you chose to discard. Earnings are paid according to the pay table. To earn your ante back, you must have at least a jacks or better combination.
If you've won any money during the game, you can choose to try to double it or double half of it. You are dealt five cards - 1 is face up and 4 are face down - and your goal is to try to pick a card from the ones facing down that is higher than the face-up card.
