  Super Double Double Bonus:

Super Double Double Bonus is a type of video poker with similar rules to Jacks or Better. It is often confused with Super Double Bonus or Double Double Bonus. A name change may sound like a tempting option, but is untenable because it is likely to cause even more confusion.

Rules

Super Double Double Bonus is a Draw Poker game. We will therefore begin this section by laying out the basic mechanics that it shares with Draw Poker.

As in Draw Poker, you are dealt five cards—after making your bet, of course. Then, after you view and assess your hand, you decide whether you would like to keep it unchanged or try for a better poker ranking. If you take the second path, you have the option of taking some cards out of your hand, or even going so far as to discard the entire initial hand. You will then be dealt more cards until you once again have a complete five-card poker hand. Then the payout—if any—is given to you.

Of course, if this were all, Super Double Double Bonus would not be a distinct game at all. The special features include high payouts for Four of a Kind hands, as in Super Double Bonus Poker. Both Super Double Bonus Poker and Super Double Double Bonus Poker rank the Four of a Kind hands and give them different payouts, so the values of the matched cards do matter. There are also higher payouts for Royal Flushes. On the other hand, there are no payouts for low-ranking hands such as Pairs. Payouts for mid-ranking hands are, while not altogether eliminated, lower than in other video poker paytables. Super Double Bonus is already quite notorious for its treatment of lower and mid-level poker hands. This game, however, is actually even stricter on this account, since payments for Straights have been lowered, as well. If you want exact statistics, you can easily find the paytables of different kinds of video poker online and compare them to each other to see just how big the difference can be.

Types of Bets

Betting in any video poker variant is quite simple. In fact, betting rules are quite uniform across the board in this game category. You bet up to five coins, but are able to set the per-coin monetary value, which allows you additional budgetary freedom. Actually, this very freedom is the reason why pay schedules are set out in terms of numbers of coins, not dollars and cents.

In a bonus poker game like this one, the type of bet to watch is, of course, the maximum bet. Placing it is the only way to make yourself eligible for bonus-caliber jackpots. If you are on a tight budget, you can set your coin denomination values low, so that you can still play five coins every time without spending too much real money.

Of course, there is also the option not to gamble at all. Many gambling sites offer “for fun” versions of their game package. Super Double Double Bonus is sufficiently interesting and thrilling that you can still have fun without needing to actually spend any money on it or depend on the prospect of (possibly, hopefully) winning something.

Strategies

As with most types of video poker, the basic Jacks or Better strategy will probably yield respectable or even great results. Even with the huge number of bonus features, Super Double Double Bonus is still essentially Jacks or Better with added glitter. Beginners, or players who prefer tried-and-true strategies, should keep this in mind. Fortunately, there is a great deal of literature (especially online) on how to play Jacks or Better. You can make use of these sources for most types of video poker. However, in the case of Super Double Double Bonus, you might want to be more aggressive that you usually would in a “plain” game of Jacks or Better. This is because, as we have said before, payouts for certain hands are lower. These cuts may be thought of as a necessary evil that allows for the special position of Four of a Kind hands in this game.

Experience

Bonus features are inserted into a game to make it more exciting. The features attached to this game certainly do that—when they actually appear. That last phrase is the key to the debate concerning the overall experience of this game. In short, yes, the bonus features are well-designed and exciting. However, the cuts to the bottom and middle of the paytable mean longer dry spells—periods of time in which no payouts occur—for the player.

In other respects, however, the experience of playing Super Double Double Bonus ultimately varies little from that of playing other kinds of video poker. There is a certain narrow, hypnotic quality to game play that makes it a bit similar to the “feel” of playing with slot machines, but with an added skill dimension. This should not be surprising. After all, the betting mechanisms of slots and video poker have a lot in common. There are other similarities: each round is independent of all others, and players tend to go through many rounds very quickly during one sitting.

The fact that this is a single-player game is another huge factor in the overall playing experience. Players with a more social outlook on gaming may miss the interaction—or at least the opportunities to bluff and fool other players. On the other hand, constant inter-player competition can be rather tiring and stressful, and sometimes even the most sociable players just want to be alone for a while. Video poker games like Super Double Double Bonus are good for people who prefer to focus on their calculations rather than maintaining their poker faces, or simply for players who happen to be in a solitary mood at the moment. (It is, of course, quite possible to enjoy both video poker and live tournament-style poker, depending on what you happen to want at a given moment.)
