Video Poker

Video Poker is one of the few machine games combining skill with the ability to obtain an edge. Your edge is not over the casino, but is created by other players who contribute to the jackpot, or the casino offers a better than fair game, but only those very few who know how to play optimally can achieve a better than 100% return.

Poker Rules

The object of the game is to get any of the winning combinations of poker hands. The winning combinations and the payoff schedule are listed on a payout schedule attached to the machine. There are not exact rules to video poker. Five-card ranking, best to worst: Five of a kind; straight flush; four of a kind; full house; flush; straight; three of a kind; two pair; pair; high card. Three-card ranking, best to worst: Straight flush; three of a kind; straight; flush; pair; high card.

Poker is usually played with a standard card deck of 52 cards. (In some poker variants, however, extra decks are used or jokers are added). The poker cards are ranked, from high to low: Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, Ace. The Ace can be either the highest or the lowest in a hand, but never be both. There are four poker suits: Clubs, Diamonds, Hearts, and Spades. No suit is higher than another. Poker hands usually consist of five cards, and the highest hand wins.

Some poker variants use Wild Cards, which can be used as any card the player desires. Jokers can be used as wild cards, or another particular type of card can be declared a wild card (such as deuces).
