Learning Play Video Poker

March 31st, 2019 Leave a comment Go to comments

Video Poker is a favored game that can be gambled on in casinos across the globe, or in your house on your computer, using an Internet account. The rules are very straightforward and involve the player attempting to get the highest mixture of cards achievable in order to acquire money. In this respect it is much the same as a normal game of poker, minus the involvement with other players. Of course, methods employed during a real-life game of poker, like bluffing, will be irrelevant here.

The game of Video Poker starts when the player inserts credits (whether it’s tokens, credit slips or money) into the video poker machine and presses the draw button. A hand of 5 cards will be electronically ‘distributed’ on the video screen.

The Electronic Poker machine also has hold buttons, and players should now decide which cards to hold and which to throw away. For the cards the gambler would like to retain, the ‘hold’ buttons need to be pressed so that they illuminate. The player can decide to keep any number of cards they wish, whether it’s all or none.

After the player has decided on which cards he or she wishes to keep, they should press ‘draw’, at which point any fresh cards are given out if desired. The hand is now finished, with the Video Poker machine analyzing the hand to see if it is the same as any of the winning hands listed in the pay out schedule.

Generally, the lowest winning hand on a Video Poker machine is a pair of jacks with the prize money increasing for each and every better hand. A list of common winning hands starts with jacks or better, and moves on to 2 pairs, three of a kinds, straights, flushes, full houses, four of a kinds, straight flushes and last but not least royal flushes. It is obvious that the payout schedule can range from game to game, so that knowledgeable enthusiasts are agile enough to pick the most money-making machine each and every time.

After the first round has finished, the player can either decide to continue on in an attempt to increase their earnings, or they can press the ‘collect’ button to retrieve any money that they may have won. Additionally, several versions of the game allow the enthusiast an opportunity to double their profits, in which instance a further hand is played. There are also differences among specific games, with some decks of cards having wild cards and other varying aspects to enhance playability.
