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'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:
|Four of a Kind
|Three of a Kind
|Pair of Jacks or better
Play Video Poker
If you want to play video poker at an internet casino, you should try casinos
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.
