It is worth pointing out that when you are considering playing any Progressive Video Poker game there are certain game playing rules you need to adhere to in regards to being able to win the progressive jackpot on offer.

So below we have listed the two most played Video Poker games both of which offer a standalone progressive jackpot, and alongside each of these two variants we will let you know just how to play them to be in with a chance of being dealt out the progressive paying jackpot winning hand!

Jackpot Deuces Progressive Video Poker Game

The first progressive Video Poker game we would like you to consider playing is the Jackpot Deuces game which is a Microgaming designed and supplied game. This game has fixed coin values and these are fixed at 1.00, this will be in the base game currency that you have chosen to set your casino account at, which could be Dollars, Pound or Euros to name but three of the available Microgaming casino currency options.

Be aware that by taking a look at the pay table you will notice the lowest winning hand ranking is for a three of a kind hand, and this is due to all of the 2 cards in the deck being wild cards, which means they are going to stand in for all other cards and will assist in your forming additional winning combinations.

The hand ranking that you will be hoping to get dealt out to you when playing this Jackpot Deuces game is the Royal Flush hand which must be in the suit of Diamonds, for when you are dealt that Natural Royal Flush hand you will, if you have put into play all five coins on the hand you are playing, win the current progressive jackpot the value of which is clearly shown on the jackpot meter at the top of the game screen.

Be aware that should you fail to play the maximum five coins per hand and are then dealt out the Royal Flush hand in the suit of Diamonds you will not win the progressive jackpot, and will instead win a smaller payout.

Playing one, two, three or four coins and then being dealt the Royal Flush hand in the suit of Diamonds will result in a payout be awarded to you of 300 coins, 600 coins, 900 coins and 1200 coins respectively. So if you do play this Jackpot Deuces game then make sure you play it for maximum stakes, or you will be kicking yourself if you are dealt the jackpot paying hand and have not put into play maximum bet stakes!

SupaJax Progressive Video Poker Game

There is a second progressive Video Poker game that you are going to be given access too if you play at a Microgaming software powered casino site, and this additional game is called the SupaJax game. This game is quite unique in its design however there are one or two similarities to the Jackpot Deuces game mentioned above.

The main similarity is that for you to have any chance what so ever of actually winning the progressive jackpot that you will be able to see the value of displayed at all times at the top of the games screen, you need to put into play five coins per hand you play.

These coin values are much like the game above and are fixed at 1.00 coin values, which mean each maximum bet hand you put into live play is going to cost you a total of 5.00. When you play five coins per hand then a unique winning combination will become live and active on the pay table.

You need to be dealt out all four of the Jacks along with a unique SupaJax playing card as the final hand combination on any single hand played to be awarded the progressive jackpot. Should you get this hand dealt to you when playing fewer than five coins per hand then no winning payout is awarded to you!

The base game of this SupaJax Video Poker game is the game of Jacks or Better and as such the pay table has the entire standard Jacks or Better hand rankings listed on it, and the minimum hand value you will receive a winning payout on is for a hand containing at least a Pair of Jacks.

Gamble Game Feature

Both the Jackpot Deuces and the SupaJax progressive Video Poker games have a Double or Nothing Gamble Game option that you are free to take whenever you have been dealt a winning hand combination. This  Gamble game will see you having to pick one of four playing cards which have been dealt out to you face down in the hope that once you pick one of those cards and it is revealed it will be a higher valued card than the one displayed on the left hand side of the Video Poker games screen.

Conclusion

As long as you always put the maximum number of coins into play when playing either of the two above named Video Poker games then you will never miss out on winning the progressive jackpot that is attached to either of them.

However as the actual coin values are fixed on these two Video Poker games then you need to keep in mind the stake levels you will be required to play either of them for and factor that into your gaming budget accordingly.
