02 February 2011
Video poker games are very popular among the online casino players and are very fond of offering lower house edges at approx 0.5 percent. However, Playtech online casinos offer a video poker variant that offers the outrageously lower house edge of 0.2 percent. This internet casino game is named as Two Ways Royal. As its given name, advocates there are two ways of beating the Royal Flush poker hand in this game. The first is the customary way of receiving a suited 10, A, Q, J and K, which is assigned as the Hi Royal Flush. The second one is the Lo Royal Flush, which is receiving a suited 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. This critique examines how two ways Royal video poker proffers a condensed house edge and from how and wherever it can be played.

The Jacks or the improved variants of the video poker have a house edge of 0.5 percent. This means that at the end with the best possible play the player can expect to win an amount of 99.5 dollars for every 100 dollars wagered. Two ways royal video pokers has introduced one further added poker hand on the Payout table. Its name is the Lo Royal Flush. The Lo Royal Flush pays 800 to 1 with five coins wagered. (Incidentally, this is the same as the payout for the Hi Royal Flush.) The prospect of Lo Royal Flush, which is being dealt, is 0.0023 percent and it shows the way to augment in the regular returns to the player by 1.8 percent. Since the lower house edge of Jacks is 0.5 percent only and this change, will make the house edge pessimistic and spell fate for the online casinos. Therefore, in two ways Royal casino surely other payouts are tweaked in order to echelon the playing field. The payouts for the Full House is condensed from nine to one and from six to one and the payouts for Flush is condensed from six to one and from five to one. The payouts for the Four of a Kind are augmented from twenty-five to one and from forty to one.
