Australian Video Poker Machines
There are many different variations of video poker, but they all have fairly similar rules, so once you have learned how to play on one particular version, you should be able to learn all of the other varieties much faster. This popular Vegas-style card game is based on five card draw poker, so having a little knowledge about how to play this game would be very helpful when you attempt to play this game for the first time at any online casino.
You won’t be playing against any other player and you also won’t be playing against the dealer. The aim is just to try and achieve the best winning poker hand possible and you will be awarded a prize based on the final hand that you have achieved. The lowest winning hand in video poker generally starts from a pair of 10s or higher, which means that a high card basically has no value on its own.
Initially, you will start with five cards. You can then discard up to five of those cards and then based on how many you actually chose to discard, that amount will then be re-dealt and hopefully these new cards will improve your hand. If you win, you will be paid accordingly and most of the time the value of each hand is always visible somewhere on the screen.
You will find that in addition to single hand video poker, you can also now find just as many, if not more, multi-hand video poker varieties. Microgaming for example has developed an exciting range of more than 50 individual varieties of video poker and these games can be found on Microgaming’s flash, download and mobile casino platforms, but only a few varieties currently exist on mobile and there are only half as many video pokers on the flash casino platform compared to the downloadable casino platform.
