YOU GET TO PICK YOUR OWN HOLE CARDS!
Texas Two-Step is a patented game based on a 7-card poker format and represents a new and engaging way to play video poker. Here’s how it works.
STEP 1. GAME PARAMETERS. First, the player selects the number of hands and the number of credits per hand they wish to play. Texas Reload currently enables a player to play up to five hands at a time and wager up to five credits per hand. For example, if credits are set to $1.oo, then a player who is playing five hands at five credits per hand is essentially wagering $5.00 per hand and $25.00 total for the round. Once the parameters have been set, the player clicks the PLAY button to initiate play.
STEP 2. PICK YOUR HOLE CARDS . The player is randomly dealt five cards face down from a standard 52-card deck. The player selects two cards. They are revealed and become the Hole Cards for each of the hands being played.
STEP 3. FLOP, TURN & RIVER REVEALED. Next, the remaining five unrevealed cards (the Flop, Turn and River) for each hand are revealed.
STEP 4. BEST 5-CARD POKER HAND DETERMINED & WINNING HANDS PAID OUT. The player’s hand is analyzed and the best 5-card poker hand combination is determined, and if sufficient, the hand will be paid out according to the published payout table, which is accessible by clicking the Payouts Slider in the upper-right-side of the screen.
STEP 5. PLAY AGAIN. The hand is now over and the player is presented with a PLAY AGAIN button.
**7-CARD POKER HANDS ARE COMING! We now have the probability tables for 7-card poker hands! This is very exciting news because it will enable operators to offer giant payouts (i.e., $1 million for a 7-card Royal Flush on a $1 wager) or incredible progressive jackpots.
How much time does a player have to accept a pick their Hole Cards? The demo version is currently set to enable a player with an unlimited amount of time to pick their Hole Cards. However, we realize that in real play, this can create an issue where a player leaves in the middle of a round, or simply takes way too much time. As such, we have the ability to employ a timer. If the timer ticks down to zero, then the REVEAL button is automatically depressed and the game moves to its conclusion.
Is the payout table adjustable? Yes. Right now, the payout table is set to an RTP of 96%. However, we can adjust it to meet your needs.
A NEW ERA FOR VIDEO POKER
ORIGINS. We took a deep dive into the history of video poker when we created Texas Two-Step. What we learned is that by incorporating light decision-making into game play we create the perception (not the reality) that players can influence the outcome. This effectively increases player engagement and is the secret of the prolonged staying power and longevity of 5-card draw video poker.
7-CARD POKER HANDS ARE COMING! We now have the probability tables for 7-card poker hands! This is very exciting news because it will enable operators to offer giant payouts (i.e., $1 million for a 7-card Royal Flush on a $1 wager) or incredible progressive jackpots.
THE OPPORTUNITY. Texas Two-Step represents an entirely new way to play video poker. It’s designed to be a crossover product that will pull traditional slot players into a video poker environment.
