Bonus Poker Tips
- Keeping an unmatched high-ranking card only decreases the potential for building better hands when you only have a Pair.
- If your original draw consists of Two Pairs, lose a set. It doesn't matter which one. Keeping both pairs removes any possibility of drawing a Three- or Four-of-a-Kind, which features a much higher payout.
- To drastically increase your payouts, Max Bet as often as you can afford to.
- Hold only the sequence if you get a hand featuring three cards in a sequence, and two unmatched cards, like 4-5-6-10-K. There is possibility of building three different Straights: 4-5-6-7-8, 3-4-5-6-7 or 2-3-4-5-6. This is a particularly useful tip when playing a multi-hand version of Bonus Poker Deluxe.

History of Bonus Poker Deluxe
Like personal computers, the first video poker games appeared in the marketplace during 1970s. Draw Poker made video poker quite popular when it was introduced by International Game Technology in 1979.
Because players in traditional casinos thought video poker was easier to learn, and less intimidating, video poker took over more of the casino floor during the 1980s. The popularity of video poker increased even more as technology improved, building better quality machines with better graphics and speed.
Video Poker was adapted for use on the internet during the 1990s, expanding the market for video poker. Players had more money to spend on gambling because there were no travel costs or expenses involved in trying their luck from the comfort of their homes. The player saved money, it was easy to play, and convenient to access.
