|Video Poker, a game usually associated with nickel stakes at the casino’s bar, has been given a technology makeover at InterCasino, allowing players to play 10 hands simultaneously. The multi-hand game offers players the advantage of holding their preferred cards from their first hand across the other nine, bringing the house edge down to 0.5% and offering the chance to win the kind of MEGA-jackpot normally reserved for progressive games. |
InterCasino player KeyRock is one of the first players in the world to win a MEGA-jackpot on a non-progressive online casino game. After 30 minutes battling on InterCasino’s Jacks or Better, the gambling gods laid the highest-possible hand, a spades suited royal flush (A,K,Q,J,10), on KeyRock’s first hand’s first round deal.
KeyRock simply held all five cards for a guaranteed Royal Flush across all ten hands. Betting $5 a hand on all 10 hands meant that KeyRock had just won a $20,000 a hand for the guaranteed total MEGA-jackpot win of $200,000 that entered him into that elite circle of poker aces that have pulled off Video Poker’s “Perfect $200,000 Hand”.
“It is an amazing thing to be dealt the “Perfect $200,000 Hand”. It is the gambling equivalent to a surfer catching the perfect wave or a salesman landing that once-in-a-lifetime deal”, said the jubilant InterCasino manager Ryan Hartley. “We are so happy for KeyRock and his “Perfect $200,000 Hand” that I have decided to give-away $1,000 a day, at random to players in the casino, for the entire holiday season,” proclaimed the magnanimous Hartley.
The “Perfect $200,000 Hand” is online gambling’s most valuable non-progressive win. The odds of pulling it off are greater than 1:1,000,000.
