How to Play Triple Play Draw Poker
There is a standard of three hands played with every go in the Triple Play Draw Poker game. Each hand is played with a shuffled deck of 52 playing cards except for the Joker Poker game which will add one joker card to the deck. Five cards are dealt face up and any card that shows a promising poker hand can be held while the other cards will be discarded. The held cards will then duplicate onto the other two hands and each hand will then be dealt another set of cards to make up for the discarded cards. This is then the final deal and any of the highest ranking poker combinations on all three of the hands will be paid out for. Each of the three hands use a separate deck of cards and the discarded cards are not placed back into the decks until the round is finished.
Each of the three Triple Play Draw Poker hands allow a maximum bet of up to five coins. Each hand must have a matching bet which is placed with the bet per hand button. The total bet feature will show what the amount of the total bet for all three hands is. Coin amounts are increased or decreased by using the bet up or bet down buttons. The cards that are to be held are done so by clicking on the desired card or using the number keys that correspond with the specific cards.
The Video Poker Hand Rankings
The various winning poker hands in the Triple Play Draw Poker game by IGT are standard hands within all the different types of video poker games but some have slightly different requirements for example the Jacks or Better has a pair of jacks as the minimum hand while the Deuces Wild uses the two card as a joker. The highest-ranking poker hand for all the variants is the royal flush, which is the ten, jack, queen, king and ace cards of the same suit.
Next up is the straight flush, which is five consecutive cards of the same suit, then the 5 of a kind which is used in games that allow a joker. The four of a kind, full house which is three matching cards and two matching cards in one hand, the flush which is five consecutive cards of the same suit and the straight are all standard hands for the video poker games. The three of a kind and two pair hands are both used in all the games and the jacks or better hands are pairs with higher values than the jack cards.
