Video Poker has been a massive hit online since making its debut in the early 1970s in land based casinos off the Vegas strip. More flexible and faster paced than a regular Poker game, Video Poker gives you the chance to play multiple hands simultaneously, building up even greater profit potential with every bet.
Video Poker is very easy to play, though you should be familiar with the hand ranking system in Poker before you begin. In order these are:
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
In Video Poker you are able to choose how many hands you would like to play and at Casinoland some of our Video Poker games let you play as many as 100 hands on each draw.
At the start of each game, you will be dealt five cards and can choose to “hold” as many of these as you like. Once you’ve selected the cards you feel give you the best chance at building a strong combination, the dealer will draw for as many hands as you’ve chosen to bet on.
Your held cards will then be used to create ranking hands for the cards that the dealer draws. Strategically you should choose the cards you hold very carefully and only select the combinations you feel give you the best possibility of creating a high ranking hand.
Some Video Poker games add a further element of excitement and allow you to gamble your winnings for even greater rewards. If you have won by landing a combination of strong hands, you’ll be able to bet your winnings, and potentially win even more, by predicting the colour of a random card drawn from the pack. You can choose either red or black and if you guess correctly your winnings will instantly multiply.
At Casinoland you can play for fun while you learn and practice your strategy, this will give you the opportunity to get to grips with the betting structure, hand ranking system and pace of the game.
