Rules: How to Play Video Poker?

There are two types of Video Poker machines; single-line and multi-line games. In both types of games, you'll start by placing your ante bet, and then you're dealt 5 face-up cards. In multi-line games, your ante bet will be multiplied to reflect the number of active lines. For example, if you're playing a 10-line game, and place a 1R bet, the total wager will be 10R.

Regardless of which type of game you're playing, the goal is the same; create the best possible Poker hand because the better the hand is, the higher your payout will be.

You'll have one opportunity to dump any, or all, of the cards on the screen and receive new cards to replace them. Choose which cards you want to hold on to, and then click on the Deal button again and you'll be dealt new cards. In multi-line Video Poker, each card that you hold will also be held on every line.

This means that if you start with a three-of-a-kind, at worst, each hand will start with a winning hand. The new cards will give you a chance at improving it, possibly to a full house or even four-of-a kind.

Each Video Poker game has slightly different rules. For example, in Jacks or Better, you'll need at least a pair of jacks to earn a payout, and in Deuces Wild, all 2 cards are wild.

Odds and Payouts

Unlike online slot games, Video Poker has a degree of skill that can help improve your odds of winning. In general, the odds of winning are determined by the house edge of each specific game. For example, Deuces Wild, a game where all 2 cards are wild, have an incredibly low house edge of -0.75% while a game without wild cards, such as Jacks or Better, gives the house a 0.46% edge.

Take a few minutes before you start playing and go over the different winning combinations and payout for each game. This will help you make better decisions regarding which cards to dump and which you hold, thereby increasing your odds of winning.

Payouts vary from game to game, but in general, a royal flush has the highest payout, and a pair of cards is the lowest value winning hand.

Basic Strategies and Tips

Not all Video Poker wins are created equal, and with the right strategy, you can improve your odds of getting a higher value hand, instead of just settling for low-value hands, like a pair of 10's.

For starters, the more lines you play, the better your odds are of at least one of them hitting on a big win.

One important tip, and it's true whether you're playing a single line or 50-line video poker hand, is to look at the rules for the specific game. Some games place more value on certain hands, while others have a pair of royal face cards as the lowest value win. This means that trying for a couple of 7s won't help you.

If you're playing a single hand game, and you're dealt 5 cards that don't have great odds of creating a nice win but includes either a picture card or Ace, hold onto one of these cards, and try for at least a matching pair, to salvage something for that round.

If you're playing a multi-line game, you might want to hold onto two or more cards that are similar or even just the same suit, in the hope that one of the lines will be dealt with the missing cards to create a nice winning hand.

Sometimes you will have to make a tough decision, if you have a pair of kings, guaranteeing a low-value win, but you're also close to getting a higher value hand, such as a flush or straight. Should you release one of the kings in hopes of a big win? Again, the strategy will depend on if you're playing a single-line game or a multi-line game.

Here is a breakdown of the standard winning hands, if you have any questions, refer to the help section below.
