Here’s a table including many of the most popular Double Double Bonus video poker pay tables. Like most video poker games, you can find more pay table variations than the ones listed below, but these cover most machines.
If you find a machine with a different pay table than one in the chart the odds are high that it has a high house edge and should be avoided.
When you look for Double Double Bonus video poker machines with the pay tables listed below you always look at the payouts listed in the one coin column. This column is all the way to the left. All of the numbers below must match except for the 800 in the royal flush row.
When you bet five coins the royal flush pays out 4,000. This includes a bonus over the payouts for betting less than five coins. This means that when you compare the pay tables below to the available games make sure the payout for a royal flush when betting five coins is 4,000 and everything else matches in the one coin column.
|Game||9 / 6||40 / 10 / 6||8 / 6||9 / 5||8 / 5 / 3||Full Pay|
|Four Aces with Two to Four||400||400||400||400||400||400|

Though rare, the best machine most players can ever find is the 40 / 10 / 6 listed in the second column.
Double Double Bonus Strategy Chart
We’ve included a simple strategy chart below for Double Double Bonus video poker. Once you find a machine with a good pay table using a strategy chart is the next step to keeping the house edge as low as possible.
When you play on a machine with a good pay table and use a strategy chart it helps your bankroll last longer. This gives you more chances to hit a big payday with a royal flush.
Here’s how to use the strategy chart. Start reading the chart from top to bottom. The first hand you find that matches the cards in your hand, stop. Keep only the cards listed in the strategy chart and draw new cards for everything else.
Never look at the hands below the first one on the list that matches your cards. This can cost you money in the long run and make the house edge higher.
You need to always bet the maximum number of coins. When you play Double Double Bonus video poker, and most other video poker machines, this is five coins. If you decide not to bet five coins it makes the house edge go up a great deal and even though you should always use a strategy chart, it won’t make a huge difference if you aren’t betting max coins.

Double Double Bonus video poker offers bonus payouts for four of a kind hands, but it’s not as popular as Jacks or Better and some other machines. If you find a good pay table and use a strategy chart it can be a good game to play, but in most cases you’re better off playing a 9/ 6 Jacks or Better machine if one is available.
