Playing Video Poker

To play a Video Poker machine, click the bill slot on the machine, and choose how many credits you want to play with. The payoff scale for the machine is shown in the lighted panel above the buttons, and tells you how many coins (credits) you receive for all possible winning hands. Typically, the winning hands in Video Poker are the same type of hands you will find in a traditional Poker game, such as a straight flush or four of a kind.

You can bet anywhere from one to five credits at a time. You have two options in betting:

Click the Bet One button once for each credit you wish to bet.
Click the Bet Max button to bet five credits.


When you bet five credits, the machine automatically deals you five cards. When you bet less then five credits, you must click the Deal button to receive your first five cards.

Five cards appear on the screen after you click the Deal button. At this point you must choose the cards you want to keep. You are allowed one re-deal, and can draw anywhere from zero to five new cards. Each card must be individually selected if you wish to keep it. You can keep a card by clicking it, at which point the word Held shows up on the screen above the card. Cards marked by the word Held will not be replaced when you draw new cards. You can easily change your mind about keeping a card by clicking it a second time. Make sure the Held notation disappears when you do so.

If you have a pat hand (five good cards), you can click the Hold All button to quickly mark each card with Hold. Conversely, the Discard All button unmarks each card.

When you’re ready to draw new cards, click the Deal button. The cards not marked by the word Held will be replaced, resulting in your final hand.

If you win, you then accumulate credits. To collect your credit(s), click the Cash Out button.
