Triple Double Bonus Poker Strategy Card

An IRS Tax form a casino issues to players who 'win' under certain condition. For video poker, a W2-G must be issued for 'wins' of $1200 or more. The $1200 threshold is fixed and independent of amount wagered. Ironically, a $5 50-play Video Poker machine (played at max-bet of $1250), a $1200 payout would represent a loss. To comply with the IRS law, Video Poker and slot machines 'lock up' upon a $1200 or more 'win' and the player must wait for a slot attendant to both unlock the machine (and return it to normal play conditions) and bring the tax form. Non-US residents (non-resident aliens) and players without proper identification (and do not produce a TIN) will have tax withholding taken from their W2-G payouts, while others can opt to receive the entire win. At many casinos, players can request a 'reset' which may allow them to return to playing quicker had they had to wait to receive the tax form and payout in the normal means. Often resets are only available in high limit rooms. Players may also request a consolidated W2-G, in which case they will receive a single W2-G for all their jackpots for a specified period of time (usually the 'slot day') rather then one W2-G for each win. In general, IRS Form 1099 are not given for Video Poker wins (unless the win involves a free drawing or lottery scenario). Neither a W2-G or 1099 are given for wins paid in 'Free Play'.

The average bonus is approximately 428 units, and it increases the return (relative to the base game) of all video poker games except for (most) wild card games, such as Deuces Wild. The Wheel Poker feature increases the variance of games and necessitates strategy changes to achieve the best return. The strategy charts for all non-wild card games are organized the same way. The hand with the highest average return goes at the top of the strategy chart. For most video poker pay tables that hand is the royal flush. The Double Double Bonus Poker pay table has the straight flush which pays 50 for 1 listed above all of the four of a kind. It’s surprising that Triple Double Bonus Poker is a game that many ‘sharp’ video poker players seek out and enjoy. Maybe it’s the challenge. If the four of a kinds are falling your way you can rack up a nice profit very quickly. The strategy for Triple Double Bonus Poker is essentially the same as ‘Bonus Poker‘. There are a few adjustments in the hand hierarchy to reflect the higher payout on 4 aces and the lower.

Triple Play with Match Card Poker uses two decks: one for the 1 3 hands that you play, and a separate deck if you activate the Match Card feature.

Match Middle Card4x
Match Bottom Card5x
Match 2 or More Cards11x

Remember that the Match Cards must match the exact suit and value of a cards in your hand.

Here’s an example using a single hand

You’re dealt Ad 3c 9h Ac 7h, and your Match Cards are 3c, 6d, Kh. You’re playing Jacks or Better, meaning that your aces would normally only be worth 1 coin.

But since the bottom Match Card matches your 3c, you earn a 5x multiplier. This pushes your aces payout to 5 coins.

Here’s another example: You’re dealt Ks Qd Jh Ts 9c in a Jacks or Better game, along with Match Cards of As Jh 3c. Since your Jh matches the middle Match Card, you receive a 4x multiplier.
