When playing these Double Bonus machines, again we focus on getting the Four of a Kind hands, especially the Aces, with its’ $200 payoff on a quarter machine.
With an Ace and another big card of a different suit, we retain only the Ace. With the 2s, 3s and 4s, these small pairs can give us $100 if they develop into Four of a Kind hands, and so, when we have a four flush, and a pair of 2s, 3s or 4s, we save the small pair, and don’t go for the Flush. In fact, with any pair, it is favored over the possible Flush, and certainly over the possible Straight.
If we’re dealt Two Pair at the outset, we retain only the High Pair (Jacks or Better) and discard the smaller ones in a hand such as Q Q 6 6. It’s approximately 10-1 against getting the Full House, and generally we’ll be only getting our even-money payout after the draw.
With the High Pair, we can improve to a big Four of a Kind payout, while still guaranteeing the even-money payout for Jacks or Better.
