Video Poker Guide

With an exciting blend of traditional Poker and slot machines, video poker is a fun online game and is easy to play in online casinos. These games offer great payout potential which makes them a very rewarding online thrill game.


In Video Poker games, the dealer (the machine) deals the player with a hand of five cards. When cards are faced up, the player decides which cards to hold (keep) and which card is to be discarded. The player then draws to replace any discarded cards.

Playing the game with the strongest hand possible is the objective. The payout at  end of the game is dependent on the value of the cards in player’s hand, and the size of the wager.

The paytables consist of a payout column and a payout row. The payout column(s) show the number of coins bet and the payout values. The payout row(s) show the poker hand and the payout values for each hand combination. The payout column is highlighted automatically. If you win, the winning row on the paytable is highlighted.

Make a decision on the coin size that you wish to use by clicking on the COIN buttons. Then decide how many coins you wish to bet by clicking on the column on the paytable.

Any viable cards in your first hand are automatically held and highlighted for you.

Choose the cards that can potentially give you the highest payout.

Draw your next hand of cards. The cards you had not held will be removed and replaced with fresh cards from the deck.

If you win, you can COLLECT your winnings. If you want to try and win even more, press the DOUBLE button. The cards will be removed from the screen and a further five cards will replace them. You must choose a card and if it has a higher rank than that of the dealer’s card, you will win an amount double on your original payout.

At that point, you will be given the chance to double your payout even further or to collect your winnings.

After collecting your winnings, you can begin another hand of Video Poker by pressing the DEAL button.

The payout at the end of the game is based on the card combination you are holding and the size of your wager.

The above guidelines will help you to be better in online gambling.
