Think you’ve seen everything video poker has to offer?

Take another look.

IGT has announced several new video poker variations that are sure to pique players’ interest.

Perhaps the most intriguing is IGT’s "Dream Card" video poker, which is available on Triple Play, Five Play and Ten Play video poker machines.

The game plays like standard multi-hand games with the addition of a Dream Card feature – players place a side bet of 5 credits per hand and receive the "right" card to complete the dealt hand.

Here’s how it works: when the player makes the extra bet, he will be given the card that yields the highest expected return. Thus, a player can count on a 4-of-a-kind in place of a 3-of-a-kind on the deal.

Similarly, a player dealt four cards to a royal flush can expect to complete the royal if the Dream Card feature is in play.

Another enhancement from IGT has been added to its already popular Spin Poker game. In its Triple Spin version, the game features three games on the same screen, which translates into three times the action.

Speaking of spinning action, IGT’s Wheel Poker Deluxe features the excitement of a spinning bonus wheel to go along with video poker action.

In this variation, players wager a sixth credit on any and all active hands to qualify for an equal number of chances at the bonus wheel.

The bonus kicks in with a dealt 3-of-a-kind, straight or full house. Players are awarded "starting hands" in a multi-hand (up to 100) bonus round.

The wins are evaluated and awarded based on corresponding bonus round pay tables, which can result in some payoffs.
