MultiStrike

Multi-Strike is not a Video Poker game in itself but rather a variation on the standard Video Poker format has been applied to some games. The difference between Multi-Strike and the standard version of the game is that there are 4 levels and hands to play each round. You start off playing on level 1 which pays out at the regular rate. If you receive a winning hand you can play level 2 which has a multiplier of 2 on any wins. If you receive a winning hand on level 2 you can play level 3 which has a multiplier of 4 on any wins. If you receive a winning hand on level 3 you can proceed to the final level which has a multiplier of 8 on any wins.

It should also be noted that you can randomly receive a ‘Free Ride’ card which will allow you to progress to the next level even if you do not receive a winning hand.

Multi-Strike Video Poker is primarily an offline game, however download Microgaming casinos do offer their own version (called ‘Level-Up Video Poker’). Our understanding of the situation is that this is done without the permission of the proprietary rights holders (IGT).

The variations of this game that we’re aware of offline (all produced by IGT) are Bonus Poker, Bonus Deuces Wild, Bonus Poker Deluxe, Deuces Wild, Double Bonus, Double Bonus Deuces Wild, Double Double Bonus, Jacks or Better, Joker Poker, Super Aces Bonus, Super Double Bonus, Super Double Double Bonus, Triple Double Bonus and White Hot Aces.

The variations of this game that we’re aware of online (all produced by Microgaming) are Aces and Faces, Deuces Wild, Double Joker, Jacks or Better and Joker Poker

For ease of comparison, the below table displays the best House Edge for all the Multi-Strike variants we are aware of;

Variant (online - Microgaming) House Edge
Aces and Faces 1.01%
Deuces Wild 1.02%
Double Joker 1.02%
