JackpotCity wouldn’t be the best iPhone casino app Canada has ever known without paying tribute to the classic casino card and table games. Of all the card games, poker must surely be one of the most iconic. It’s a game that puts the player’s knowledge of the cards to the test and demands rapid betting decisions. When you combine the challenge of poker with the fast-paced fun of slots, you get a unique form of entertainment – Video Poker. It’s essentially five card poker tailored for single player gaming, and JackpotCity’s iPhone casino has several great variations. These include Aces and Faces, All Aces, Aces and Eights, Double Double Bonus and the all-time classic Jacks or Better. The names give a hint as to how the player must form a winning hand, but the set-up is basically the same in each one. After setting their betting limits, the player hits “Deal” and the game deals out five cards. It’s up to the player to choose which cards to discard and which keep. After that, the game deals out the replacement cards and the player either wins or loses according to their hand strength. A round of Video Poker is suspenseful and intense, but it’s over quickly. That means players have to exercise their minds and call on their knowledge repeatedly as betting decisions are made in quick succession. All in all, Video Poker is a very special type of challenge and it plays and displays to perfection on an iPhone.
