The Basics of Video Poker
Winning in Video Poker is essentially the same as winning in a regular Poker game. The catch is that in Video Poker you aren’t playing against anyone else. The objective of every round is to try and get the highest 5-card combination that you can. The better the hand, the more it pays out.
Each round of Video Poker begins with the deal phase, during which you as the player will receive five random cards from the deck. You are allowed to discard as many of these cards as you want, or keep all five if you want.
Once you have selected the cards you want to discard you will move onto the draw phase. Your chosen cards will be taken away and replaced with fresh cards. The five cards in your hand now determine your final hand. You are then paid out according to your original bet and the power of the cards in your hand.
Video Poker Strategy
If you’re new to playing Video Poker, or new to 5-card Poker in general, then we suggest maybe using Video Poker strategy charts to help you play. These charts can be easily found on the internet and help you to make decisions based on cards you are dealt. If you play this way for long enough you may eventually come to understand these strategies as second nature.
At Spin Casino we also offer practice modes for all our games, which allows you to play free-of-charge. You won’t be able to win anything, but you can familiarise yourself with the rules of the game.
Enjoyed With Responsibility In Mind
Spin Casino is firm in our belief that all our games are intended as a means of entertainment rather than a reliable way to make money.
We ensure that every player in our mobile casino comes equipped with features that can help make their experience a positive one. To this end we provide settings that allow you to decide if you would like to place time or money limits on your game play.
Players who feel like they might be battling with gaming addiction can also make use of links providing access to organisations that can help. There are even options to lock your account for a cooling off period of as little as 24 hours, or as much as 6 months.
