Once the initial round has played out, the player can either choose to stay on in an attempt to maximize their winnings, or they can press the ‘collect’ button to retrieve any cash that might have been won. Additionally, some versions of the game allow the gambler a chance to increase their wins, in which instance a further hand is played. There are also variations between specific machines, with some decks of cards including wild cards and other varying elements to enhance playability.
