The Rules

No matter which game you choose, all video poker games follow the same rules:

  1. The game uses a standard fifty-two card deck, except if jokers are being played.

  2. To play, you first must make a wager. Once you select the denomination you wish to play, you hit the “deal” button and the game will give you five cards randomly selected from the deck.

  3. You decide which cards to keep and which to discard. The game replaces your discarded cards with more cards randomly chosen from the deck.

  4. You receive a payout based on the cards in your hand. The winning amount is determined by the game’s particular pay table.
