In Video Poker, the more you bet, the higher the payouts for a winning hand. Once the player has placed their bet, five cards will be dealt from the deck. The aim of Video Poker is to create the highest poker hand possible using the cards you have been dealt.
Because you are playing directly against the computer, winning is based purely on the hand you are holding. With classic poker, players can out bet or bluff their opponents in order to win a hand, with Video Poker this is not possible.
Creating Card Combinations
When you play online Video Poker at JackpotCity the paytable at the top of the screen will display the payouts for the various poker hand combinations. In most online Video Poker games, the minimum paying hand is a pair of Jacks or better.
Once the initial 5 cards have been dealt, players can choose to keep or discard any of their 5 cards in their hand. To keep/hold a card, players simply click on the card they want to hold. Players can then click on the deal/draw button and the dealer will replace the discarded cards with new cards from the deck.
