Video Poker is a Poker inspired casino game that is played with an automatic machine similar in appearance to a Slot Machine. Even then they were computerized machines that displayed the cards on the display automatically and randomly. Over time, the algorithm that generates the cards, the Random Number Generator (RNG), that is the generator of random numbers , has become increasingly sophisticated together with the graphics and other technologies that have allowed the spread of Video Poker first in bars in the 90s, and finally on the internet .
Playing Video Poker (or any other game) in the casinos listed above is perfectly legal as they follow the AAMS legislation as we said. But the reason why these casinos are better than many others is that they have all the most famous variants of Video poker as well as Slots, Blackjack, Roulette and other games (including real Poker played against other players): Video Poker Jacks or Better , Deuces Wild , All American , Joker Wild, Aces and Faces , Joker Poker , Tens or Better and more.
On most of the casinos above you can also play from smartphones and tablets : you often find a mobile version that sometimes also works on less popular devices such as Blackberry and Windows Phone, while sometimes you also find specific apps for Android or iPhone and iPad . If you play on a computer, you don't have to worry about downloading anything because downloading is now only an optional choice in a few casinos, and you can usually always play directly from the portals.
They also have interesting bonuses that reward your first deposit and in some cases even no deposit bonuses , which you can get by simply registering and without depositing anything . Things that video poker bars certainly don't offer. If you are a lover of some casino software in particular you will surely find it in the list as there are all the major producers such as Playtech , IGT and Netent .
Video poker Rules
The rules of Video Poker are similar to 5 Card Draw , 5 card poker (not Texas Hold'em poker then). The biggest difference is that you play against a machine and not with other players. Once you have placed your bet, the machine randomly generates the output of the five cards that are displayed on the screen.
If you are not satisfied with the combination of the five cards, you can decide which ones to keep (with the hold button ) and which ones to change . The latter will be replaced by new cards. You can also change all or none of the cards. If you finally hit a winning point, the machine pays you according to the combination you hit . You can see the payout of the winnings in the table that you find in the foreground of each Video poker: of course the rarer points, such as the Royal Flush, allow for richer winnings. In some cases there may also be a Progressive Jackpot.
