Online Video Poker


Online Video Poker first emerged in the casinos in the seventies, and has been growing in popularity ever since. All hands in online video poker are ranked just like in traditional poker, with slightly different variations, depending on which of the many video poker variants you are playing.

Online video poker

Online video poker's main attraction is hitting the Royal Flush, which will reward you with the jackpot. Remember that the jackpot in general is progressively higher when you bet max coins. Always bet max coins. If your bankroll can't take it, try to find a video poker machine that accepts lower denominations. Also shop around for an online video poker variant that offers the highest jackpot, preferably a progressive jackpot that hasn't been hit in a while.

A typical payout schedule for full pay Jacks or Better online video poker looks as follows:

Hand Payout
Royal Flush 800
Straight Flush 50
Four of a Kind 25
Full House 9
Flush 6
Straight 4
Three of a Kind 3
Two Pairs 2
Pair of Jacks or better 1

Play Video Poker

If you want to play video poker at an internet casino, you should try casinos powered by Playtech or Microgaming, because they offer full pay Jacks or Better. If you are really serious about playing, compare the payout tables of different casinos, and play only at those casinos that offer the best payouts. For any given online video poker variant, payout tables can differ between brands of casinos, but also between casinos of the same brand, as is the case with casinos powered by Real Time Gaming.
