King of the House Video Poker
King of the House Video Poker Highlights
The video poker variation named "King of the House" carries that moniker because it places an added emphasis on one winning hand in particular. Among all variations of video poker, it pays more on a Full House than any other.
In King of the House, like all versions of video poker, play starts as the competitor is dealt five cards on the video screen. The player can hold or discard any number of the cards he has been dealt, or discard none of them.
When the player draws, he receives cards to take the place of those he has let go. All of this, of course, is in pursuit of the final objective - a winning hand.
In King of the House, the winning hands start with a pair of Jacks or better. Two pairs actually pays the same, and the Full House pays 50 coins off a five-coin maximum bet. That is twice as much as the player is paid for a Full House in Double Joker Poker and more than three times the payout as in Deuces & Joker.
Here is the full pay table, based on the recommended five-coin maximum bet (recommended because that is the only way to achieve the bonus with a Royal Flush):
- Royal Flush -- 4000
- Straight Flush -- 250
- 4 of a Kind -- 125
- Full House -- 50
- Flush -- 30
- Straight -- 20
- 3 of a Kind -- 15
- Two Pair -- 5
- Pair, Jacks or Better -- 5
Coin denominations allowed are 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 and 50 cents, $1, $2 and $5. The maximum bet is $25, based on five coins at the highest denomination.
