Understanding Basic Video Poker Rules
Video poker games are based on the traditional poker five-card structure, although they are usually only paired down to two stages: deal and draw. Online games also usually eliminate the requirement to beat other players or the dealer. All you need to do is a place a bet.
Once you’ve selected your bet, you typically hit “Play”. At this stage, your five cards will appear. If you get a winning hand, this combination of cards will be held. If you want to hold any other cards, you’ll generally click them and then “Draw” new cards. Your final hand will be assessed for a win. For quick strategy, the smallest potential win is a usually a pair of jacks. Three of a kind, four of a kind, full house, straight, flush, and straight flush are the next winning hands. A royal flush is the max win, which may lead to a massive jackpot.

A Brief Guide to Video Poker History
The History of Video Poker can be traced back to the mid 1970’s with the advent of the PC age. Back then Video Poker Games consisted of nothing more than simple monitors hooked up to CPU’s (central processing units) and looked nothing like the Online Video Poker games available today.
During the 80’s the leap forward in computer technology helped to create a growth in the Video Poker market in Las Vegas. This was due to the fact that better Video Poker games were now available that offered poker players a less pressurised poker environment to play in.
During the 90’s (and continuing until today) the rise of the internet has introduced a whole new generation of Video Poker Players to the game. Today, video poker contains much of the same structure and rules, but the formatting and graphics are enhanced. Microgaming software makes it possible for us to offer slick user-interfaces and clear how-to tutorials to practice before you play.
