Video Poker Basics

Unlike regular card Poker that involves the Preflop, Flop, River and other stages, there are just a few steps in every Video Poker game. You can bet up to 5 coins per round, and then the Deal stage begins. In the Deal stage 5 cards are dealt at the same time and are rated according to standard Poker hand rankings.

If you’re happy with the hand exactly as it is, you can Stand and end the round. However, if you want to try your luck and see if you can improve your cards, the Draw stage begins. Here, you choose which cards you’d like to discard and replace.

You can exchange anywhere between 1 and 5 cards, and your payout is calculated according to your final hand and your initial wager. That’s all there is to it! The fast pace of the games makes it perfect for gamblers with minimal time.
