  Bonus Flush:

Bonus Flush is a type of video poker. It is unique because of its larger payouts for Flushes and its smaller winnings for Two-pairs.

Rules

On the most fundamental level, Bonus Flush works like most video poker games you will find out there based on the game Jacks or Better. You start by placing your tokens (real or virtual) into the game, and are then dealt five cards. After you have looked at your cards, you are asked whether you would like to get rid of some or even all of them and take new ones. Of course, if you are already quite satisfied with your initial hand, you can decide to keep all the cards. Whatever your final hand happens to be, you are then (hopefully) given some money based on the game’s paytable.

The payouts for a Flush are very good. Yes, you read right: you can get bonuses for any hand of cards in which all five are of the same suit. This is rather an interesting feature, since the bonus hands in many other types of video poker tend to be extremely specific, and thus very rare. It is true that the bonuses here are not huge, but then flushes are not all that rare, so you do have a chance at winning a small bonus over a relatively short gaming session. This game should thus have a strong appeal for players who are out to win decent sums without spending too much, as opposed to those who insist on chasing down gigantic bonuses. On the downside, the bonuses for Flushes are balanced by smaller payouts for Two-pair hands.

Type of bets

Players who like a myriad of complicated betting options will find those available in Bonus Flush a bit disappointing. Like most games of this ilk, you can only choose to bet one, two, three, four, or five coins. Then again, other players will relish the simplicity of the betting options. After all, being overwhelmed by confusing choices can be the opposite of freedom. If you have very limited funds and would like to keep playing as long as possible, you might want to stick to betting just one or two tokens for every hand. However, do keep in mind that the bigger your wager, the bigger your potential winnings. Also, your cumulative wager over several hands does not have any effect on any winnings you might earn. In other words, even if you have bet a huge number of tokens over a gaming session, but bet only a single token at the time you happened to win, you will only get the smallest payout for that particular hand.

Strategies

A person planning their strategy for any type of video poker game must reckon with the following question: to what extent, if any, should chasing after the bonus play a role in overall strategy? In some cases, players decide to just ignore the bonus hand, playing a straightforward game of Draw Poker as if that feature did not exist. If the bonus hand appears, great. If not, no problem. Then again, we have the bonus-chasers, who always make it a point to make the maximum bet and shape a large chunk of their strategy around the bonus. This approach is best recommended, if at all, for people who can afford to lose a lot of money. Then, of course, there are the people whose approach falls somewhere in between these two extremes.

Bonus Flush seems to have been designed to court those in-betweeners—or possibly drive them crazy trying to decide on a strategy. Unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all strategic advice for this particular game. You have to decide based on your resources. Once again, if you have money to spend, you have more reasons to be aggressive with your wagering. Otherwise, cool down.

The bonuses attached to the Flushes might also influence your decisions when it comes to throwing out certain cards. For instance, you might decide to discard a particular card because it is of a mismatched suit, even if its individual value is particularly high.

Experience

As with most types of video poker, the nature of this game is to focus your concentration on what is immediately in front of you. For one, there are no other players competing against you. All you have to worry about are your own cards. Then there is also the fact that the card hands here are independent of each other, so video poker games have a high degree of randomness. Game plans implemented over many hands do not work as well for these games. Some players will see this as an unpleasant narrowing of their strategic options. On the other hand, it can also be said that the lack of distractions is liberating. Your personal verdict on this situation will depend on your own ability to concentrate.

The unusual character of the bonuses in this game (smaller, but you have better chances of getting at least one during your session) tend to make the game stand out from all the other video poker variants you will find online. The bonus is more deeply integrated into the game, rather than featuring as something tacked onto it. This makes game play more interesting overall—though some people who like their games as simple as possible might find it intrusive.

If you like video poker games that truly have interesting twists—as opposed to just a single bonus hand to differentiate them from the rest of the pack—Bonus Flush is the variant for you. Kudos should go to the designers of this game for putting more thought than is typical into the bonus features.

We must include a few caveats. Make sure that the software you are using is from a legitimate designer and website/land-based casino. Do your research thoroughly so as to find a site that not only has clean, honest software, but can also protect your transactions and financial information. Playing for real money is always a risk, but this gamble should not involve cheaters or hackers.
