Double Bonus Poker Cheat Sheet

Today, I present to you the Double Bonus Poker Cheat Sheet.  If you have downloaded and used the other video poker strategy cards from the Silver Oak Casino blog, you may notice that the Double Bonus Poker Cheat Sheet is longer than the rest.  Why would that be?

Double Bonus Poker has a little twist the other games don’t have that makes the strategy a little more complicated (and the cheat sheet that much more useful!).  Let me show you what I mean.

Take a look at the order of winning hands in Double Bonus Poker (in order from biggest payout to smallest):

  1. Royal Flush
  2. Straight Flush
  3. Four Aces
  4. Four 2–4
  5. Four 5–King
  6. Full House
  7. Flush
  8. Straight
  9. Three of a Kind
  10. Two Pair
  11. Jacks or Better



It looks just like the standard video poker pay table until you get to numbers 3 – 5.  Notice that four 2’s, 3’s, or 4’s beats four 5’s through Kings.  Weird, right?

This little quirk makes the strategy a little more complicated because it has to take that twist into account.  Even though this strange rule makes life a little more difficult, have no fear!  Just follow the strategy outlined on the cheat sheet and every move you make will be flawless!

As always, just follow these easy steps to use the strategy card:

  1. Place your initial bet.
  2. Click on “DEAL” to get your starting hand.
  3. Now take a look at the cheat sheet. Based on the cards that you have, find the highest hand on the list.
  4. Keep all of the cards listed in the hand you chose in step 3.
  5. Click on “DRAW”



That’s it!  You have successfully played perfect video poker strategy.
