With its perfect mix of poker and slots, the video poker game can be a relaxing form of recreation or a challenging game of skill. It is a game that requires its players to play a hand of poker against the machine alone, in which there is only one round of replacing cards. It can be a great way to practice building poker hands and a just as great a way of practicing one’s poker skills. There are several popular video poker game varieties, including Jacks and Better, Mega Jacks, Aces and Faces, 2 Ways Royal, Deuces Wild, and Joker Poker.
Take the classic game of poker and combine it with modern slot machines – you get magical video poker. Entering the casino will improve your poker skills against the machine test in action-packed surroundings. The majority of players like poker video thanks to its simple game system that really only the basic combinations of poker demanded (Royal Flush, Four Deuces, Five, etc), this allows you to instantly realize what cards it is worth to keep and what can be decommissioned.
You get 5 cards face up on the deal and can choose to hold or discard any of them, then draw from the deck for your discards to make your best 5-card poker hand. With multi-hand versions, each hand in a game gets the same 5-card deal and hold cards, but then each hand will draw independently from its own deck, so you’ll have many chances to draw a winning hand.

All-American Poker is a variation of Jacks or Better where a 4x bonus is given to Straight Flush hands (200 coins per coin bet instead of the usual 50), and the payouts for a Full House, a Flush and a Straight are made equal. Because a Straight is easier to get than a Flush or Full House, a good strategy is to hold those cards most likely to make Straight or a Straight Flush.
Bonus Deuces is a form of Deuces Wild with a bonus given to certain 5-of-a-Kind hands. Just as in Deuces Wild, all 2s are wildcards in Bonus Deuces and a hand with all four Deuces pays 200 coins per coin bet. For regular Deuces Wild, a 5-of-a-Kind hand pays 16 coins. But here there is a 4-coin bonus for hand rank 6 through King, so the payout is 20. For ranks 3 through 5, the payout doubles to 40, and with Aces, it doubles again to 80! Get all 4 Aces with a Deuce kicker and the payout leaps to 400 coins!

Crazy 8s is an exciting game of draw poker where you only need a pair of Jacks or Better to win, but if you get four 8s in a hand, you win a bonus of 200 per coin bet over a normal 4-of-a-Kind payout. Get four 8s and an Ace, and the bonus jumps to 350. That’s crazy!
Deuces & Joker Wild
Deuces & Joker Wild combines Deuces Wild with Joker Poker for more exciting Video Poker action. This game uses a 53-card deck with one Joker. The Joker and all four 2s (deuces) are wildcards, meaning they can act as any other card on the deck. You need a 3-of-a-Kind or better to win, but with five cards wild in rank and suit, it’s easier to draw winning combinations.
Deuces Wild is a fun game of draw poker where all 2’s (‘deuces’) are wildcards, meaning they can act as any other card in the deck. You need a 3-of-a-Kind or better to win, but Deuces are wild in both rank and suit to make it easier to draw a winning combination.

Double-Double Aces & Faces is another form of Jacks or Better with a double-double bonus given to certain 4-of-a-Kind hands. A regular 4-of-a-Kind hand (2-10) is doubled to 50 coins. Next a Jack, Queen or King 4-of-a-Kind with 2-10 kickers pays 80 and then gets doubled again to 160 if the kicker is another face card (J, Q, K or A).

Five Aces uses a special 53-card deck that includes an extra Ace (with a suit of “star”). This extra Ace can help make Ace pairs, 3-of-a-Kind, 4-of-a-Kind and especially 5 Aces hands. It can also serve as an Ace to complete normal straights (either A-K-Q-J-10 or 5-4-3-2-A), but it won’t make Flush or Straight Flush hands since for those you still need five cards of the same suit. The top prize of 6000 coins can be worth as much as $150,000.00 on some Five Aces machines.
Jacks or Better
Jacks or Better is a classic game of draw poker where you only need a Pair of Jacks or better to win.

Loose Deuces is just like Deuces Wild, where all the Deuces (2s) are wildcards and can serve as any other card in the deck.

But with Loose Deuces, a hand with all four Deuces pays a whopping 500 coins per coin bet. So the payout on those Deuces is very loose indeed!
One-Eyed Jacks are the Jack of Hearts and the Jack of Spades, so named because the face is in profile and only shows one eye. In this game these two cards are wild in both suit and rank, meaning they can serve as any other card to help make a winning combination.
