Level Up Video Poker Offers Higher Returns For Higher Risks

The Microgaming Level Up online video poker series allows players to take higher risks for greater returns. The video poker variants on offer are Aces & Faces, Deuces Wild, Double Poker, Jacks or Better and Joker Poker. The payout table of each variant is the same as in the regular games. The general process of all Level Up video poker games is as follows. The game is played over four hands. You place the bet for all four hands upfront. You move to the higher level only if you win at the lower level. But the payouts are multiplied at the higher levels. Level Up video poker games are live at all Microgaming online casinos like All Slots, Jackpot City and Spin Palace.

Four times the amount wagered per hand is deducted from your balance. Each level uses an independent deck of cards and is played like regular online video poker variants. If you do not draw a paying hand in the first level then you forfeit the total wager without even playing the hands at higher levels. If you draw a winning combination you will be paid as per the payout table. You then move to the second level. If you win here then you will be paid at twice the rates given in the payout table. Losing at the second level results in the game ending. However, you keep the amount won in the first level. You play the Level Up game till you win all four levels or lose at any level.

After the main game is over, you have the option to wager your total winnings in a double or nothing gamble game. This is the same gamble game from the regular Microgaming online video poker variants. If play the gamble game and win then the staked amount is doubled. However, if you lose the gamble game then the amount staked is forfeited.

Microgaming has introduced two features in Level Up video poker that increase your chance of getting a payout. A Free Ride Card can randomly appear next to a dealt hand at any level, except the fourth. This allows you to move to the higher level even if you lose that hand. You obviously do not get any payout for that level. The second feature is the Auto Complete. You may be dealt a natural royal flush at a higher level, but fail to reach that level. Then the Auto Complete feature reveals the natural royal flush and awards a compensatory payout for it.
