How to play this game
The dealer uses a single 52-card deck with no Joker, and the deck is reshuffled after each hand. Odds in Video Poker depend on player's ability. There is an element of skill in making the best decisions, of which cards to keep, which, unlike Slot Machines, will determine whether and how much you can win. The player is dealt one five-card poker hand. After the first draw, which is automatic, you may hold any of the cards and draw again, by pressing the 'Deal/Draw' button, to replace the cards that you haven't chosen to hold (to hold a card simply click on it and a "Hold" sign will appear). All winning hands and their payoffs are listed on the machine (at the top of the screen) and explained below. The object is to get the best possible combination so that you earn the highest payoff on the bet you placed. Our casino uses $0.25, $1 and $5 slots, up to five-coin bets each. Choose your denomination, either as Player or as Dealer, and start playing.
In order to play you must first insert credits into the Video Poker machine. You do this by clicking on the $5, $25 or $100 buttons on the lower right side of the screen. You can also click on the Coin Slot to the right of the 'Deal/Draw' button to insert one coin at a time. Choose the amount you wish to bet by pressing the 'Bet One' or 'Bet Max' buttons. Pressing the 'Bet Max' button places 5 credits in the "Bet" text box and automatically deals the first draw. Pressing the 'Bet One' button places one credit in the "Bet" text box up to a maximum of 5 credits. Once there are credits in the "Bet" text box the 'Deal/Draw' button lights up and can be pressed to deal the cards. After the first draw you may keep any of the cards you want by clicking on them (a "Hold" sign will appear on the cards you wish to keep). After you have decided which cards to keep, press the 'Deal/Draw' button to replace the cards you decided to discard. Winnings are determined according to the winning combinations that are illustrated in the Payout Table at the upper part of the screen. If you have a winning hand the corresponding row to your winning combination will light up on the Payout Table. If there are any credits in the machine you can cash them all out by pressing the 'Cash Out' button. This will remove the bets and credits from the "Bet" and "Credit" text boxes and return them to your Balance.
