Poker Ride Progressive Review
Poker Ride is a progressive jackpot table game developed by Microgaming. This popular Vegas-style card game is available at almost every secure Microgaming-powered online casino. You can find this game via their downloadable casino software. This game is quite easy to play, but it does help to know a little bit about poker. The value of this game’s progressive jackpot is always visible towards the top of the game window.
Poker Ride is quite often compared to a game called Let’em Ride (or Let it Ride) and it is generally played with just one deck of 52 cards. Before each new hand begins, these cards will be randomly shuffled by the dealer.
The main aim when playing this game is to try and achieve the best poker hand possible. The higher valued your hand is, the greater your win will be. The lowest win is generally a pair and the other wins include two pair, 3 of a kind, a straight, a flush, a full house, four of a kind, a straight flush and the top win is a royal flush.
The dealer and the player are both dealt two starting cards and it is at this point where you must decide to either call or raise. The player may also take out an optional side bet at this point and it is this additional side bet that can potentially win you the progressive jackpot, but as mentioned, this side bet is only optional.
Each time a player places a side bet, the progressive jackpot will grow. This will keep growing until one lucky player wins the main pot and the only way to win this progressive jackpot is to hit a royal flush.
Although this might seem impossible to some players, there are other ways that you can win a fraction of the main progressive jackpot. If you happen to receive a straight flush for example, you will instantly receive as much as 10% of the accumulating prize pool. A standard payout for receiving a Royal Flush on this game is usually 1000:1.
