Action, IGT unveil game

Jan 1, 2002 12:48 AM

Action Gaming has combined forces with IGT to produce a new video poker game, Chase the Royal, that gives players a greater chance to tag the elusive royal flush.

Chase the Royal is a variation of the multi-hand games found on Triple Play/Five Play/Ten Play machines, and produces a royal flush four times more frequently as in regular draw poker.

Basically, the player is given a chance to replace a dealt pair of jacks, queens or kings with three suited cards to a royal. If he accepts the trade, the three new cards are played in all of the active hands, and the player draws two cards.

The game is played with Jacks or Better, Bonus, Double Bonus or Bonus Poker Deluxe.
