Video Poker Rules

The object of video poker is to get a winning combination of poker hands. Each hand has a different payback, which is given by a payout table in the game (see the screen below for an example). Video poker rules below:

How to play video poker

  • You deposit coins into the machine to place your wager. The bet must be placed before you draw your cards, and can't be changed once play starts.
  • After your bet, you push a button marked "Draw/Deal", this will result in you seeing your initial hand of five cards.
  • You then decide if you wish to keep any of the cards in your hand. If you do you push the "Hold/Cancel" button under the card(s) you wish to keep. In the event you change your mind and don't wish to keep a previously held card push the "Hold/Cancel" button a second time and the hold will be canceled.
  • Make sure that there is conformation on the screen that you have held the cards that you want to hold (the word "hold" flashes under your held cards).
  • Press the Draw/Deal button a second time to obtain new cards for those not held.
  • If you have a winning hand the machine pays off and is then ready for another game.
