Video Poker is an exciting combination of traditional poker and slots, with great payouts and simple enough for even beginners. Playing video poker online is no different than in a land based casino, except for the fact you can play for the comfort of home.
Liberty Slots Casino offers seven variations of Video Poker – Aces and Faces, Deuces and Joker, Deuces Wild, Double Joker, Jacks or Better, Joker Poker, and Tens or Better – available in single and multi-hand games.
How to Play Video Poker
In all variations of Video Poker, the machine deals a hand of 5 cards face up. The player must then decide which cards they would like to keep, or HOLD, discard the others, which are replaced by new ones.
The object of Video Poker is to finish the game with the strongest poker hand possible. The payout for a win is dependent on the players finishing hand.
Just like slots, Video Poker games have a Payout Table to inform players of what they can win for certain combinations. Each paytable displays the bet and payout values in columns and the corresponding poker hand needed for the payout in rows. When a player has a winning hand, the row in the paytable corresponding to the winning hand is highlighted.
Before playing video poker online, decide on how much you want to bet per hand.
In most video poker games a winning bet has the potential to be DOUBLED. If a player chooses to try and DOUBLE their payout, they move to a mini game, where the object is to pick the HIGHEST value card from 5 cards displayed face down. If a player chooses the highest value card out of the 5, they have doubled their payout and are given the opportunity to COLLECT their winnings or DOUBLE again, by picking another high card.
Each different variation of Video Poker has its own set of rules, so be sure to check the additional rules before starting a game. For example, in Deuces Wild all cards with the value of 2 are considered Wild Cards and can represent any card in the deck to help the player generate the best possible hand.
