    Video Poker Basics

    Video Poker Basics

    Video poker is a straightforward game in which you play against a machine instead of a dealer or another person. It's displayed on devices that look precisely like slot machines. But it's more complicated. Precisely, you have to make decisions that can impact the outcome of the game.
    With slots, you place a bet and hope you trigger winning symbols. That's it. You don't need skills or particular strategies to affect the symbols formed on the machines.
    On the flip side, a video poker game is more interactive. It also requires skills, as we'll discover below. Here’s how the game works:

    • The RNG software deals you five cards
    • You select cards that could form a strong poker hand
    • You hit draw to receive replacement cards
    • You win depending on the hand produced

    How much you win also depends on the game and the paytable. By default, there are five columns on a standard video poker table: 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. In the Jacks or Better game, a two pair hand wins you two coins on column one. You earn 250 coins if you hit a royal flush.
    By comparison, a hand of 2 pairs wins you ten coins on column five and 4000 coins if you hit a royal flush. For clarity, there’s a bonus for hitting the royal flush with a maximum bet.
    But even without bonuses, betting on the upper columns increases your potential payouts significantly. Also, some games pay better than Jacks or Better. So find a few variations and play in the SBR Casino. Ensure you get a bonus to boost your bankroll and learn a few skills to increase your win rate.

    Somebody is messing with the machine

    Years ago, a friend of mine had a poker machine at home for a few days - we change the settings and we were getting 5 of a kind every 10 hands

    I remember the good old days when SBR would tinker with the video poker in the casino, and give 105% payback for 1 day of the year.


    105% or something like that
