Reely Poker Online Slot Launches at Virgin Casino

Reely Poker Online Slot

Virgin Casino, the popular Alderney licensed online casino, has launched three new games at the site recently, the most intriguing of which is titled the Reely Poker online slot.

Reely Poker incorporates slots and poker games in one with only the slot game being available in the normal mode.

All the symbols in the 30 pay-line game are the playing cards. The wild symbol is the joker that offers the highest line payout of 5,000 coins. The scatter payouts are awarded by the Ace which also triggers the bonus game. Line payouts are offered by King to Deuce. The maximum line payout of 4,000 coins is offered by the King while the Deuce offers a maximum payout of 75 coins.

Although all the cards from the Ace to the Deuce are dealt in the four suits the suits do not count for the slots game. Line payouts can occur after any card of the same rank appears in an active pay-line.

The Multihand Infinite Hold’em Bonus is triggered if three or more aces of any suit are scattered anywhere on the reels. Players are dealt the number of hands which is equal to the number of Aces that triggered the bonus. Payouts begin from 2 for a pair to 500 for a royal flush. New rounds can be played as long as players hit two pairs or higher.

Slot Poker is the poker based game and once players activate this game it remains activated until deactivated. Each spin will see a side bet amount of ten times the line bet being automatically taken from the player who has to select one of the three horizontal rows. The hand for that row is determined by the cards that appear on each horizontal row. If the players chosen row is higher ranked than the hands in the other two rows it will result in a win of the poker hand. Payouts are 3 to 1 on the side bet amount and Slot Poker wins are added to the line wins.
