Realtime Gaming’s Double Double Bonus Poker

Realtime Gaming, or RTG, develops and produces some of the most popular online versions of the game, and their interpretation of Double Double Bonus Poker has always been a firm favourite. To learn more about the game, read through the guidelines here.

Game Basics

Double Double Bonus Poker gets its name from the fact that it pays out twice as much as Double Bonus Poker for specific combinations. As always, you should look at what the 5 cards that you are originally dealt are and then decide which ones to keep and which to discard. Bonuses are paid for sets of 4, in 3 different categories: cards with a value of 5 to King; from 2 to 4 and Aces. Extra payouts are given for kickers, the name given to certain values of the 5th playing card. To make up for these extras, most RTG casinos pay out less for winning combinations overall.

There are plenty of online strategies and forums to help you develop your own personal style, but in general you should never break up a dealt playing hand unless you’re holding 4 of the 5 cards you need for a Royal Flush. In particular, pairs of Aces, 2s, 3s and 4s should be held. The list below is a good starting point and goes from the highest to the lowest possible hand in Double Double Bonus Poker.
