This unusual poker game puts the player up against the dealer. As with many poker games the player has to choose the amount that they would like to ante up for the play. Five cards are dealt out to both the dealer and the player after the initial bet has been placed. All of the player’s cards are face down on the table while one of the dealer’s cards remains face up on the table with the other four face down. The player then chooses from the normal poker options of staying and raising or losing their bet and folding. If the player wins the round they will receive two times the ante they bet.
Features and Gameplay
Just as in the variations of percentages that a player may win from the side bet that they place during game play there are also other differences in the form of bonuses. One bonus given at various gaming places is that of a magic card. If a player is holding a card that matches the magic card, which is a random card that the system picks, then they win a prize that is 20 times the amount that they bet in that hand. A lucky player bonus is another variation that some establishments offer during the play of Island Stud Poker Jackpot. In this bonus game the system will randomly choose a player to win some money.
The progressive jackpot for Island Stud Poker Jackpot video poker game has ranged from a high of $236,302 to a low of $173,924.
