About Game King Bonus Poker IGT
IGT Bonus video poker machine looks like something you plugged into your console as a kid in the 80’s and watch the ball ping pong across your screen. Still, don’t let the look of this Game King machine turn you away, it may look old fashioned, but offers great odds and great bonus features.
The potential return to player rate on this mobile casino game is 99.16% if you use the perfect video poker strategy. That’s not only high, but certainly makes this IGT beauty a favourite to play for bonus poker fans as it’s an 8/5 machine (which bonus video poker players will be able to recognise as full pay.)
The rules follow the classic Jacks or Better game, except for the extra bonus hands. These are:
- 4 Aces – 3 highest paying hand
- 4 2s, 3s and 4s – so four of a kind of 2, 3 or fours. 4th highest paying hand
- 4 5s and upwards – so four of a kind with any of the rest of cards. 5th highest paying hand
How does this affect the game? Well Bonus Video Poker gives you more chances of winning than IGT’s Jacks or Better, though the return for ‘lower’ hands will be slightly less due to the extra bonus paying hands.
However, the simple graphics does give you a couple of advantages; it will work on any type of device you choose, whether you prefer to play in Android casinos or iOS casinos. Quick to load and quick to play, there is even a ‘speed’ button if you want the cards to turn faster. Though why is a mystery to us as the turning is freaking fast to begin with.
Only thing to watch out for is that there are no automatic holds for good hands. So be sure to press on the hands you want to keep otherwise you might find yourself throwing away a perfectly good flush.

Sure it doesn’t look the prettiest, but IGT were the first to manufacturer and make video poker slot games way back when. So why fix something which is clearly not broken?
Great full pay machine, great returns and easy to use.
