Video Poker

Short Description and Game Rules:

Video poker is also known as draw poker. The dealer uses a 52-card deck (with 2 additional jokers in Joker’s Wild), which is played fresh after each hand. The object of the game varies with each machine. For specific details regarding each winning combination, please check the tables below. In order to play Video Poker:

1. Click on the slot to insert a 20 bill. If you have less than 20, whatever amount you have in your bankroll will be automatically deposited in the video poker machine. |

2. Choose the denomination of the Bet by clicking the arrow button under the credits.

3. Click on the "Bet One" button, once for each credit you wish to bet, or the "Play 5 credits" button to place the maximum bet of 5.

4. After betting using the "Bet One" button, click on the "Deal Draw" button, whereupon you will be dealt one five-card Poker hand. (If the player utilizes the "Play 5 Credits" button to bet, the deal will occur automatically.)

5. After the first draw, click on the "Hold" button to save any cards that you wish to keep.

6. Click on "Deal Draw" again, thereby replacing the cards that you have not chosen to hold with new ones.

Your cards are then compared to the table of winning combinations (see below). If the value of your hand is lower than the minimum winning combination, you lose your bet. If the value of your hand is higher, you win (see "Winning Combinations" below).

Double Playoff Round:

When you produce a winning hand (depending on winning combinations table) you are offered a playoff round in which you are given the opportunity to "Double" your winnings. If you do not wish to participate in the playoff round, simply click on "Collect".


1. Click on the "Double" button to leave your previous hand's winning as your bet.

2. The Video Poker Machine's cards will shuffle and turn over face down, and then one card will turn face up.

3. Click on one of the four cards that remain face down.    

     (a).If the card that you choose is of a higher value than the card that the machine turned over - you win, and the special round continues, if you wish. Please Note: If you do not wish to continue participating in the playoff round, simply click on "Collect".

     (b). You may once again click on the "Double" button to leave your previous playoff round's winning as your bet.

      (c). If the card that you choose is of an equal value to the card that the machine turned over it is a Tie, or Push and you neither win, nor lose and the playoff round is over.

      (d). If the card that you choose is of a lower value than the card that the machine turned over, you lose your bet and the playoff round is over.

Please Note: The playoff round automatically ends after a total of five rounds.
