Video Poker

About the Game

Our Video Poker game is based on the same rules and odds as a standard high-payout Video Poker machine. The objective is to build the highest combination of five cards in a single poker hand. After the initial deal you can choose to hold as many of the five cards as you want. The remaining cards will be replaced in the Draw phase of the game. Winning combinations are based on standard poker hand values.

How to Play

To make your bet, click the BET PLUS or BET MAX buttons. You can increase your bet one unit at a time by clicking the BET PLUS button, or decrease one unit at a time by clicking the BET MINUS button. Or click the BET MAX button to bet the maximum amount of five coins. Your total bet will determine your payout, and the corresponding payout column at the top of each machine will light up as you increase or decrease your bet.

Once youíve placed your bet, click on the DEAL/DRAW button and your five cards will be dealt to you. Click on the individual cards that you want to hold in order to build the best possible hand. To deselect a card youíre holding, simply click on it again and the HOLD will be released. You should HOLD all five cards if you want to stand on the hand you are dealt. Any cards you do not HOLD will be replaced when you DRAW.

After youíve selected the cards you want to HOLD, click the DEAL/DRAW button again and the cards you did not HOLD will be taken away, and new cards will be dealt in their place. After the DRAW your final hand will be evaluated, and winning hands will be paid out accroding to the payout table at the top of the machine.

To play again with the same bet amount, click the DEAL/DRAW button again without pressing any betting buttons.

Between hands you may toggle between the $.25 minimum bet game and the $1 minimum bet game by pressing the button to the right of the game above the payout window. The odds on the Payout Table will change to reflect the minimum bet option youíve selected.

Winnings are reflected in the PAYOUT area and are automatically added to your BALANCE.

Poker Basics

The machine uses a single 52-card deck and reshuffles after each hand is played out. You are dealt a single five-card poker hand and are given one opportunity to draw.

The lowest possible paying hand is "Jacks or Better" which is a pair of Jacks, Queens, Kings or Aces. Single pairs of lesser value do not qualify for any payout.

Please note: Aces are always high. Therefore a hand with an Ace, 2, 3, 4, and 5 does not qualify as a Straight. A hand with an Ace, King, Queen, Jack, and 10 is a Straight.
