Video Poker Rules

The video poker game is based on Five Card Draw poker game. The rules for playing video poker are very easy and simple to understand. The main objective of the game is to form the best possible hand that offers the highest payout.


Different hand rankings offer different payouts. To start the game, the player places a bet. After the bet is made, five cards are dealt to the player. The player can either hold or discard any of these cards that he wants. The discarded cards are then replaced with new cards. This new hand combination is the final hand. After the draw is made, based on the hand of the player, payouts are determined.


There is a Random Number Generator inside the video poker machine that ensures fair random outcome of game. The RNG has billions of possible outcomes for every set of cards.


In addition to the payout earned by obtaining the best hand combination, the player can also win a jackpot. But in order to win a jackpot the player must always bet for the maximum coins. As the game precedes the size of the jackpot increases until any player wins it.


Some video poker games also offer the option of doubling up your win if needed. If the doubling option is selected by the player, five cards are dealt again but with only one card face up. The player has to pick a card from the four other face down cards having a higher value than the face up card. If the picked card has a higher value, the winning amount is doubled. Finally after playing as many deals as a player wishes to play, he cash out his winnings.
