|Jackpotjoy.com, the largest online instant win gaming site in the UK have become the first site in the country to launch 5 Hand Video Poker, recognised to be the fastest growing game in Las Vegas. 5 Hand Video Poker is a browser-based Flash game, offering a high skilled gaming experience.|
From a bet as small as £1, players can win anything up to £1600, due to the unique 'Double' feature giving an opportunity to double your winnings. For example, for a Royal Flush you win x800, giving you £800 for a £1 stake. If you choose to gamble to double your winnings, you could make that £1600, at no extra cost to you. The game can also be played for free, allowing players to win prize points, to be exchanged for prizes including digital cameras,
DVD players and weekend breaks.
Playing is easy. Select your stake and click deal. Then decide which cards you would like to hold for your next hand. Click 'Draw' to show all cards in the 5 hands. Your winning cards will be highlighted, and you'll be offered
the chance to double your winnings through predicting whether the next card dealt will be higher or lower. If you're new to poker, when a winning hand is dealt, the game even advises which cards to hold!
Within days of the game under-going a limited release for beta-testing, one lucky player won with a royal flush, winning £4000 on a £5 stake. In the testing period, over £50,000 was given away in prize money on the game. Now
the game has been fully launched, it is anticipated that £1 million will be won per month.
