New Video Poker Games at Virgin casino Online

It has been a long time since there has been an addition to the video poker games category at Virgin Casino. Virgin Casino offers very few video poker variants and therefore the additions are more than welcome. These new variants are from the Microgaming portfolio accessed through the QuickFire platform.

The first of the new video poker variants is Aces and Eights. It is characterized by high payout for Four of a Kind (Aces or Eights) hand rankings, which is more than that for straight flush. It pays out 80 coins per coin wagered. Four of a Kind (Sevens) also has a special payout of 50 coins per coin wagered. These enhanced payouts have been made possible by reducing the payout of the remaining Four of a Kind hands to 20 coins per coin wagered. The payouts have also been marginally reduced for Full House and Flush. The payout table has been so tweaked as to offer a 99.09% return to the player.

Aces and Eights video poker at Virgin Casino offers the regular Microgaming features. Players can wager with up to 5 coins per hand. The advantage of wagering with 5 coins lies in the payout for Royal Flush. At 4,000 coins for 5 coins wagered it is more than the pro rata payout of 250 coins per coin wagered offered for wagers with up to 4 coins. The Microgaming video poker gamble game is also available in Aces and Eights. This allows players to try and double their payouts if they want to. The coin size ranges from 0.25 credits to 5.00 credits. The minimum bet, with 1 coin wagered, is 0.25 credits. The maximum bet with 5 coins wagered is 25.00 credits. The jackpot payout at maximum bet works out to 20,000 credits.

The other video poker addition at Virgin Casino is Bonus Deuces Wild. This variant has two differences from the standard Jacks or Better. The twos act as wild cards and there are special payouts for certain poker hand rankings. Natural Royal Flush pays 800 coins per coin wagered, except when 5 coins are wagered. Then the jackpot payout is 5,000 coins. The next payouts per coin wagered are 400 coins for Four Deuces with an Ace, 200 coins for Four of a Kind (Deuces), 80 coins for Five of a Kind (Aces), 40 coins for Five of a Kind (Threes, Fours or Fives), 25 coins for Wild Royal Flush and 18 coins for Five of a Kind (Sixes through to Kings). The return to the player for Double Deuces Wild is 99.15%.

Virgin Casino is licensed by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission and offers online casino games from a number of software providers through the GTS platform.
