Rules of Video Poker
Video Poker is the fight club of the casino world. The popular table game has had some real estate in the casino world as far back as the 1970’s. It sure can be daunting taking on other players and since not everyone has the moves of Tyler Durden, stepping up to the table the first time – you can get your beak wet on video poker instead. It’s the best way to learn the rules and get a feel for the game.
At Joe Fortune Casino you can find 17 different versions of video poker. The rule of thumb is that video poker is based on a standard 52-card playing deck.
Place your wager and dive right in, all you need to do is hit the “deal” button to get the ball rolling. In draw poker you receive five cards. If you see nothing that takes your fancy, you’ll have the chance to get rid of as many cards as you like and swap them out. As a player you’ll need jacks or better to score a nice cash reward. The top hand, a Royal Flush can offer up to 800 times your original wager.
Great Hands in Video Poker: The Wild Bunch
Go wild or go home. There’s Deuce’s Wild which means that the twos in the deck can be used to represent any other card. At Joe Fortune Casino there is also Joker Poker, Loose Deuces and Jacks or Better. All the different types of poker offer some whopping payouts. Joker Poker brings the Joker into play, in a standard 52 card deck. All the different types of video poker will offer higher payouts for different types of hands. Some versions of video poker offer a bonus for certain types of hands. For example, Bonus Poker is identical to Jacks or better, and offers a higher payout for Four-of-a-Kind.
