The Goals in Video Poker

The aim of the game is to make the best hand out of the five random cards that the casino slot machine deals the player. The idea is to improve the dealt hand by discarding the weak cards or by holding on to the strong ones. Every card discarded is replaced by a new and potentially better card from a virtual deck.

Video Poker - The Game

When playing video poker slots games, the goal is not to beat your opponents, as in traditional poker, but to get a winning hand. Each hand is played from a newly shuffled deck. The player does not need to try and remember what cards have already been played. The amount won depends on the size of the bet. Plus unlike in poker, video poker slots games give you chance to win the Jackpot!

First, the player places a bet. Next, the player presses the DEAL/DRAW button after which five cards are "dealt to the player" - this means they appear on the screen. The player then has the option of discarding as many of these cards as he/she likes. When the player presses the DEAL/DRAW button again, new cards appear in the same positions as the cards that were discarded.

This new hand represents the player's final holdings. If the hand is good enough and is on the list of "payout hands", the number of credits allocated by the machine will be awarded to the player. Check the payoff chart for the list of payoffs for the game being played. Now, the machine waits for the player to place the next bet and starts the process over.

At Slotland, JacksorBetter is one of the forms of video poker slots available. This version of video poker rewards the player for hands containing at least a pair of jacks or better. The payoffs are different for each game and the right strategy also differs, depending on the game played. There is a much better chance of winning if you know the rules that apply to that particular variation. The same strategy does not apply for all the different video poker games.
