Video Poker has its origins in Vegas in the early 1970s and has changed almost beyond recognition since those early days. With the surge in online gaming, better graphics and better gameplay, Video Poker has undergone a make-over that leaves it almost unrecognisable from its early, slow versions.
Today’s Video Poker games are fun, high-speed games with a fantastic array of winning possibilities. All of the Video Poker titles we offer give you the chance to play multiple hands, some up to as many as 100 hands for every bet.
Before you get started it is very useful to know the ranking hands used in Poker, these are detailed below:
Royal Flush – Five cards in the correct sequence, all of the same suit (Clubs, Hearts, Spades, Diamonds) eg: A, K, Q, J, 10
Straight Flush – Five cards in the correct sequence, all of the same suit eg: 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
Four of a Kind – Four of the same card, one from each suit, eg: 7,7,7,7
Full House – Three matching cards in addition to two further matching cards eg: J, J, J, K, K
Flush – Five cards all of the same suit though not in sequence
Straight – Five cards in the correct sequence though of different suits
Three of a Kind – Three of same card, one of each suit
Two Pair – Two pairs of the same card of different suits
One Pair – One pair of the same card of different suits
At Casinoland some of our Video Poker games allow you to play as many as 100 hands for every wager, that is a massive hundred chances to scoop serious rewards.
At the start of the game you’ll be dealt five cards and must choose to select the cards you wish to play. You can do this by “holding” the cards you feel will help you make the strongest combinations once the dealer deals for as many hands as you have chosen to play.
The higher the ranking hands your cards create the more you win, with the Royal Flush, Straight Flush and Four of a kind being the most lucrative combinations. Selected games may allow one card to be “wild” and this will then act as a substitute card, allowing you to build even greater winning combinations.
All of our Video Poker games also have a second screen bonus game where you can choose to gamble your winnings to land even bigger rewards. You will be asked to guess the colour of a card chosen randomly from the deck, guess the colour correctly and you’ll instantly double your profit.
As with all of the games at Casinoland, we’ve made it easy to practice by playing for virtual cash. This is perfect for players learning the ropes who may not initially feel confident playing for real money right away. You can practice for as long as you want before graduating to real rewards.
Our Video poker games are amongst the best online and we have a number of exceptionally popular titles including Deuces Wild, Jacks or Better Double Up, Deuces Wild Double Up, All American Double Up and many more.
