Video Poker is a popular game that usually will be wagered on in casinos all over the world, or alternatively at home on your PC, through a web account. The regulations are very straightforward and involve the player attempting to get the greatest combination of cards possible in order to win cash. In this respect it’s very similar as a regular game of poker, apart from the involvement with other players. Of course, techniques used in a physical game of poker, such as bluffing, will be irrelevant here.

The game of Electronic Poker begins when the gambler inserts credits (either tokens, tickets or money) into the machine and pushes the draw button. A hand of five cards will be "distributed" on the screen.

The Video Poker game also has hold buttons, and bettors should now pick which cards to hold and which to throw away. For the cards the gambler would like to retain, the ‘hold’ buttons must be pressed so that they light up. The player can decide to keep any amount of cards they want, whether it is all or none.

After the player has decided on which cards he would like to retain, the player will then press ‘deal’, at which point any new cards will be dealt if desired. The hand is now completed, with the Electronic Poker machine scanning the hand to see if it matches any of the winning hands shown on the payment schedule.

Typically, the minimum winning hand on a Video Poker machine is a pair of jacks with the award money increasing for each better hand. A common list of winning hands starts with jacks or better, moving on to 2 pairs, three of a kinds, straights, flushes, full houses, four of a kinds, straight flushes and finally royal flushes. It is obvious that the pay out schedule can range from machine to machine, so that experienced bettors are agile enough to pick the most beneficial ones each and every instance.

Once the first round has completed, the player can either choose to stay on and try to to increase their earnings, or press the ‘collect’ button to cash out any cash that has been won. Additionally, some styles of the game give the enthusiast a chance to increase their profits, in which situation a further round is played. There are also variations between specific games, with some decks of cards including wild cards and other varying aspects to increase playability.
