Video poker players do have to be on the ball these days, and make a very careful point of finding and working out the long term expected RTP’s of video poker games they fancy playing, for some variants of the same game can have much lower payout percentages.
Take for example the Microgaming designed Deuces Wild video poker game, players will find both a single hand variant on offer at casino sites that offer their range of games and multi-Hand variants, too.
What players may be oblivious to though is the fact that the single hand variant of that game has a pay table that returns an RTP of 96.76% which is considerably lower than the multi hand variant on which the pay table returns an RTP of some 99.37%.
So, if any players out there are ever playing Microgaming’s video poker games and fancy trying out Deuces Wild then they should be making a beeline to play the multi hand variants.
In fact, NetEnt video poker games also have some quite noticeable differences regarding the pay tables offered on their single hand and multi hand variants.
Their single hand Joker Poker, Deuces Wild and All American variants have pay tables that return much higher RTP’s than those of the three hand variants, so those latter games should be avoided by players.
For players who are thinking about playing at a casino site using Playtech’s range of video poker games, be aware that the 10 or more hand variants of games such as Jacks of Better has a payout percentage of 97.30% which is lower than the single hand variants RTP, which for reference is 99.54%.
The 10 or more hand Aces and Faces has a pay table that returns an RTP of 95.44% which is much lower than the 99.26% RTP the single hand variant returns to players.
