There are some variations on video poker that are very popular. For example, a player may frequently find video poker games that offer multiple hands played at one time. In games of this nature, there may be up to five hands dealt at once, with only one hand dealt up so the player can see the cards. The player chooses which cards to hold, and those cards are held for all five hands. The rest of the cards are discarded and the player receives the last of their cards for all five hands, all face up. The player then receives a payout for any combination in any of the five hands. This variation is exciting because there is an opportunity to win multiple times.

Just like a 100% deposit match bonus, this type of match will go up to a certain amount. However, this will depend on the percentage of the bonus. Say you claim a 150% match up to AU$200, and you only deposit AU$100. You will receive AU$150 to play with from the casino. This is still a great bonus, but the percentage may be spread across multiple deposits.

The tiger is a valuable symbol, as lining up five of the big cat will give you a roaring payout of 2000x your total wager. When special symbols are lined up, or some winning combinations, their glimmer of neon will become a full neon glow that in turn triggers a bonus feature, or rewards you with a multiplier of four.

A proctor, or “caller,” will then push a lever that opens up a tube. From there, the balls are selected one by one and dropped into a v-shaped catch. This catch is known in keno parlance as “rabbit ears.” Once the appropriate amount of balls are loaded onto the rabbit ears (20), both the caller and an additional “verifier” will record each of the balls that were drawn. Once that’s done, a computer program made specifically for the game of keno will calculate all of the bets based on the numbers that were drawn.
