Pay It Again Poker

As AGS gains licensing in additional jurisdictions across the U.S., the manufacturer is broadening its product offerings with a new specialty game for the video poker space. Pay It Again Poker introduces a new twist on classic video poker that will appeal to players of all skill levels.

The game is available in Jacks or Better, Double Double Bonus or Deuces Wild versions, each with several pay tables from which operators can choose. When wagering five credits, the game plays like a standard video poker game. However, wagering six to 10 credits per hand qualifies the player for bonus prizes for hitting two of the same winning hands.

Qualifying players will enter the bonus by hitting certain winning hands, and have a limited number of plays to win that same winning hand for a second time. Should they hit the second winning hand, they will be paid a bonus prize in addition to the standard payoff.

With every incremental credit wagered, players increase their odds of hitting bonus sequences.

The available pay schedules do not include “full-pay” games, to compensate for the bonus payments. The Jacks or Better game is available with pay tables returning an optimal 96.92 percent, 97.47 percent or 98.8 percent. The Double Double Bonus game has pays schedules returning an optimal 96.48 percent, 97.65 percent or 98.63 percent; Deuces Wild, 97.35 percent or 98.61 percent.
