2000 Credits for Four Aces with Low Kicker
As the name of this video poker game suggests, Double Double Bonus is just like Double Bonus, offering an extra payout for different four of a kinds. Different payouts for 5 different four of a kinds are on offer, compared to 3 different four of a kinds in Double Bonus. This difference makes the strategy somewhat more complex, and increases the variance to 42.2, which is the highest among all the traditional video poker games. This increased variance translates into a requirement for around 40% more bankroll than you would need when playing Jacks or Better.
