How to Play
In video online poker, players are dealt
five cards after they make the required deposit. They then have the option of
either keeping their cards or changing up to 5 of their cards. Hands are paid
out according to their hand value. A Royal Flush pays out the highest and a
single pair pays the lowest. Hand rankings are similar to those used in
Texas Holdem Poker
Different Game Types
Players can enjoy playing a number of different
variations of video poker. The standard game is the basic Jacks or Better game.
In this game, you must have at least a single pair of Jacks or higher to win.
You have the option of throwing out all five cards and drawing new ones. The
best way to win this game is to hold any Jack or higher card.
A variant of the basic Jacks or Better game is Jokers
Wild. You play with a 53 card deck where jokers are wild. Jokers can be played
as any card or suit. Since the wild card increases your chance of getting a
pair, only two pair hands and above are paid out. Your game strategy should be
similar to a Jacks or Better game, except focus on getting two pairs instead of
In Deuces Wild, all twos are wild. They can
played as any card or suit. Only three-of-a-kind hands and higher are paid out.
You want to keep all your twos, plus hands that can possibly make a flush
Progressive Video Poker is and exciting version of the
game where a progressive jackpot can be shared among a whole network of online
gaming rooms. Jackpot amounts can run high and are usually paid out when a
player has a Royal Flush. Other progressive jackpots might pay out on different
hands like a Royal Straight. The first player in a network that has the winning
hand takes the pot.
