October 1st, 2015 by Dayanara

Electronic Poker is a beloved game that is able to be bet on in casinos across the world, or alternatively at your house on your personal computer, through a web account. The rules are absolutely simple and involve the player attempting to get the best combination of cards achievable in order to come away with money. On this account it is much the same as a regular game of poker, without the interaction with any other players. Of course, methods used in a physical game of poker, like bluffing, will be useless in Video Poker.

The game of Video Poker begins when the gambler inserts credits (either tokens, tickets or cash) into the machine and pushes the draw button. A hand of 5 cards will be "dealt" on the screen.

The Electronic Poker game also has buttons with ‘hold’ written on them, and enthusiasts should now decide which cards to keep and which to throw away. For the cards the gambler would like to retain, the ‘hold’ buttons must be pressed so that they illuminate. The player can decide to keep any number of cards they wish, whether it’s all or none.

After the enthusiast has decided on which cards he or she wishes to retain, they should press ‘deal’, which will mean that any new cards are given out if desired. The game is now completed, with the Video Poker machine scanning the cards to see if it is the same as any of the winning hands shown on the pay out schedule.

Generally, the minimum winning hand on a Video Poker machine is a pair of jacks with the award money growing for each better hand. A common list of winning hands begins with jacks or better, and moves on to 2 pairs, three of a kinds, straights, flushes, full houses, four of a kinds, straight flushes and last but not least royal flushes. It goes without saying that the payout schedule can range from game to game, so that knowledgeable enthusiasts are able to choose the most profitable ones each and every time.

Once the first round has completed, the player can either choose to remain on and try to to maximize their winnings, or they can press the ‘collect’ button to cash out any credits that have been won. Additionally, several styles of the game give the player a chance to increase their winnings, in which case a further round is played. There are also differences between individual games, with some virtual decks having wild cards and other varying aspects to increase playability.
