Double Double Bonus Poker Tips
- At Silver Oak Casino, playing more credits increases the payouts on winning hands.
- If your initial deal features three cards in a sequence, hold the sequential and nothing else. You'll have the potential of three different types of Straights. This is particularly helpful when playing multiple hand versions of Double Double Bonus Poker.
- It is never a good idea to keep unmatched high-ranking cards when you only have a Pair. It drastically reduces the potential for building better hands.
- Try not to keep Two Pairs, unless one is Jacks or Higher. Keeping both sacrifices the ability to draw a Three- or Four-of-a-Kind, which both feature a much higher payout, but Two Pair could be the start of a Full House.
