You start your game of online Poker Ride by first selecting your coin size: anything from half a credit to a hundred credits. Your initial Ante bet will be one coin of the size you selected.
In addition, you may place a Jackpot Bet of one credit. The Jackpot Bet is optional, but a great part of the Poker Ride excitement comes from the Jackpot Bet, so it would be foolish to pass up the opportunity.
Then, once your bets have been placed, you are ready to start playing Poker Ride online by clicking the Deal button. You will be dealt five cards: three face-up and two face-down.
After examining your three face-up cards, you must choose to Call or Raise. Call will keep your bet at the same level, while Raise will add one more coin to your bet. After you click either the Call button or the Raise button, your fourth card will be turned over.
Now the process repeats. You look at your four face-up cards and click either Call or Raise, and the fifth card will be turned over. This reveals your final 5-card poker hand.
You win your online Poker Ride game if your final poker hand comprises a pair of 10s or better. The amount you win depends on the amount of your wager — which itself depends on the coin size you initially selected and on the number of coins you raised — and on the strength of your hand.
A pair of 10s or better will double your wager, while the better poker hands — such as two pairs, three or four of a kind, or a straight or flush or full house — will pay out even more, all the way up to 200-to-1 for a straight flush and 1000-to-1 for a Royal Flush.
All the possible payouts, such as 3-to-1 for three of a kind or 5-to-1 for a straight, are displayed clearly on the Pay Table at the top of your Poker Ride screen. You will see, for example, that a Royal Flush will pay 1,000-to-1 on your wager, plus the Poker Ride Progressive Jackpot.
The optional — but highly recommended — Jackpot Bet makes you eligible to win the Poker Ride Progressive Jackpot. This is a jackpot that starts big and keeps getting bigger every time anybody plays Poker Ride at any online casino, including All Slots Online Casino, anywhere in the world. The Poker Ride progressive jackpot can be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, Euros, or pounds.
With a simple 1-credit Jackpot Bet, you could be in the running to win any of these fabulous prizes:
As you can see, a bit of luck and some smart wagering can win you a big payday at online Poker Ride at All Slots.
Like all online casino games, Poker Ride involves an element of luck, which is the deal of the cards. The cards are dealt totally at random, making it a certainty that you are going to win some hands and lose some hands when you play Poker Ride online. Nevertheless, even though you have no control over the cards you receive in your hand, you do have control over how much you win and how much you lose. This is where online Poker Ride strategy comes into play.
The main idea of Poker Ride strategy is to try to keep your losses small and to make your winnings big. You do this by making a realistic assessment of the probabilities based on your evaluation of your first three cards, and again based on your evaluation of your first four cards, and then choosing to Call or Raise accordingly. If you do this wisely and consistently, you can come out ahead over the long run of Poker Ride play.
