So, you’ve made the trip – you’re here at your favorite casino. You’re shy and you’re intimidated, but you want to play Poker….
Guess what – you still can, and you can win some decent bucks. Video Slots allow you to play just about any table game you desire in the anonymity of a slot atmosphere. Video Poker can bring you better returns on your investment than regular slots, once again because of the decision factor. Believe it or not, there are in existence professional Video Poker players!
How did this occur? Dating back to the 1970’s, crude forms of video poker evolved. “One-Armed-Bandits” without the arm, “Draw Poker” finally evolved in 1979.
For the last half-century, Poker was exclusively a “man’s game”. We can trace it back to riverboat gambling in the 1800’s. Now, women play Poker at least as much as men, if not more. Poker has become very mainstream and attractive, due to televised Poker tournaments, with VERY attractive winner jackpots. Poker is not just for Binion’s any more – there is a very good chance you are playing it in your own home on one of your online or PC programs.
There are many variations of Video Poker, some being:
- Jacks or Better
- Tens or Better
- Deuces Wild
- Bonus Poker
- Double Bonus
- Double Double Bonus
- Progressive Jackpot
The largest “hands” to pay money are listed below in order:
- Royal Flush
- Straight Flush
- Full House
- 2 Pairs
- One Pair (of…..Aces, Jacks, whatever the machine dictates…..)
As always, you are advised to play the maximum amount of coins suggested, so that in the event that you hit the “ROYAL FLUSH” you will earn the maximum bonus and jackpot amount available. Once again, as it is with all slot machines, Video Poker machines are regulated by law regarding their payback percentages.
Good luck, and hopefully, your skills will be justly rewarded.
