In addition to the typical slot-game play offered in the 30-payline Reely Poker, there’s more than a touch of poker action included as well.
At the beginning of play, choose one of the three rows to make up a standard five-card stud poker hand for extra winnings by selecting “on” on the “Slot Poker” meter at the top of the game board. The game instructions note that the player earns a 3:1 payout for hitting the best of the three hands showing, but we’re not sure what exactly is multiplied by that three; better to just figure on a payout of 3/4 the total bet on these winning hands.
Note (disappointingly) that wilds do not count as jokers; in fact, that “card” is eliminated from the poker hand altogether.
Three or more bonus symbols (represented by the aces) triggers the exciting “Multihand Infinite Hold ‘Em” round; you’ll get between three and five hands depending on the number of bonus symbols hit to gain entry. These hands are dealt as though playing a game of Texas Hold ‘Em and going all-in before the flop. In other words, you ride those two pocket cards all the way through to the river.
Play continues fpr each hand as long as it hits two pair or higher; during this round, hands pay between 2:1 and 500:1 on the total bet dependent on rank.
