How to Play Video Poker
Video Poker is a simplified version of hold’em poker. When playing the game, players will be dealt 5 cards. They can then choose to keep or swap as many of these cards as they like: any cards that are discarded will be replaced with new cards and then the game checks the pay table to see if there are any winners.
Each game has its own unique pay table, so what makes a winning hand in one game might not be true in another. The amount that each game pays out will also vary between games. You can check the pay table for each individual game in the ‘more info’ section of any variation you’re playing. Here you will also be able to find out the rules of the game and, if you’re still unable to find out the information you need, then our excellent customer service will sort you out.
Video Poker Rules and Strategies
The lowest possible winning hand in most video poker games is any pair over a certain value. So, for example in Jacks or Better, a pair of Jacks would be the first hand that offers players a return. In some other games, two pairs is the first hand that pays out, or it might be a lower-value pair. It’s important to check the rules of the game you’re playing before you start so that you can see what hand you need to make to get the minimum payout.
Because pay tables are different for each individual game, you will have to adopt a different strategy for each different game that you play. You wouldn’t be the first player to celebrate a winning hand only to realise you were playing the wrong variation!
Some of the games also offer unique rules, such as the ‘2’ being wild in Deuces Wild, and this is something else to keep in mind while playing. If you’re not fully aware of the rules then you could end up making errors that will cost you in the long run.
Odds and Payouts
As already mentioned, the odds and payouts for each individual video poker game are different. This means that the paytable will offer different levels of payout for different hands. However, to help you out, we’ve still put together an example pay table so you can see how they work. Just remember, this pay table might not be the same as the pay table for other games. Here is the example pay table for Aces and Faces:
|Hand Value||1 Coin Bet||2 Coin Bet||3 Coin Bet||4 Coin Bet||5 Coin Bet|
|Four of a Kind - Face Cards||40||80||120||160||200|
|Four of a Kind - Number Cards||25||50||75||100||125|
|Three of a Kind||3||6||9||12||15|
|A Pair of Jacks or Better||1||2||3||4||5|

How do you win at video poker?
The way to win is to create a hand that will give you a payout according to the pay table. The better your poker skills and your understanding of the different hands, the better you will be at doing this.
What is the difference between video poker and real poker?
Video Poker doesn’t include multiple betting rounds. Once you have placed your stake, the pot remains at that level until the hand is over. There are also no other players to compete against, so if you have a good hand you are guaranteed a payout because no-one else can beat your hand.
What are the odds of hitting a Royal Flush in video poker?
The odds are generally around 16,000 to 1. However, depending on the specific game, these odds can fluctuate. For example, Deuces Wild includes wild cards which increase your chances of getting a Royal Flush.
What video poker game has the best odds?
Many players believe that Deuces Wild has the best odds because the wild 2s make it easier to create hands. However, even this varies between games and you should make sure to research thoroughly before choosing a game to play.
How is video poker different to slots?
Video poker includes a lot more skill than slots. Your decisions can increase or decrease your chances of winning at video poker, whereas video slots are a game of pure luck.
