How to Play Electronic Poker
October 22nd, 2019 by Dayanara

Electronic Poker is a popular game that can be played in casinos across the globe, or alternatively at home on your computer, through a net account. The rules are very straightforward and involve the player trying to get the highest combination of cards as you can in order to win cash. In this respect it’s much the same as a classic game of poker, without the line of contact with other players. Of course, methods used in a real-life game of poker, such as tricking, will be irrelevant in Video Poker.

The game of Video Poker starts when the gambler inserts credits (either tokens, credit slips or money) into the machine and presses the play button. A hand of five cards will then be electronically ‘handed out’ on the screen.

The Electronic Poker machine also has buttons with ‘hold’ printed on them, and bettors will need to now choose which cards to hold and which to throw away. For the cards the bettor wishes to keep, the ‘hold’ buttons need to be pressed so that they light up. The player can decide to keep any amount of cards they wish, from all to none.

After the player has chosen which cards he or she wishes to retain, they should press ‘draw’, at which point any new cards will be needed they will be handed out. The hand is now finished, with the Video Poker machine scanning the hand to see if it matches any of the winning hands shown on the pay out schedule.

Normally, the lowest winning hand on an Electronic Poker machine is a pair of jacks with the award money getting larger for each better hand. A list of common winning hands begins with jacks or better, moving on to two pairs, 3 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 change from game to game, so that discerning bettors are agile enough to pick the most money-making ones every instance.

After the first round has played out, the player can either decide to remain on and try to to maximize their winnings, or press the ‘collect’ button to cash out any cash that has been won. Additionally, several versions of the game allow the player a chance to double their winnings, in which case another round is played. There are also differences among specific machines, with some decks of cards having wild cards and other varying characteristics to increase playability.
