What Is Online Video Poker?

What Is Online Video Poker?

Online video poker is best described as a cross between five-card-draw poker and slots. You can find it at online casinos like ICE36, and the objective of the game is simple: to get the best hand (or combination of cards) possible and potentially win a cash prize.

You’ll be dealt five cards initially, which you’ll see on the screen. You can then decide whether to draw different cards or keep (‘hold’) any of your cards.

Once you’ve made your decision, the computer will deal you new cards to replace any that you decided to discard. You’ll then be left with your final poker hand.

The computer will automatically tell you the best possible hand you can make with your final five cards, so you don’t need to worry about learning all the winning hands!

Video Poker vs Poker

Poker has endured the test of time and remains one of the most popular casino games ever. Although traditional poker has its benefits, here at ICE36 we’re big fans of video poker.

One of the main advantages of online video poker is that it can be enjoyed whenever and wherever you are, unlike traditional poker which is commonly played in physical casinos.

Traditional poker also comes with lots of strict rules and strategies, and it can be difficult for new players to learn the ropes.

Video poker, on the other hand, is more straightforward. Since you’re only playing against the computer rather than multiple other players, the gameplay is much quicker - and you don’t need to worry about maintaining a ‘poker face’!

We also love the huge game variety with video poker, giving you plenty of options to choose from and lots of game variations to try.

Online Video Poker Game Types

There are lots of different types of online video poker games to try, including Jacks or Better, Deuces Wild and more. To learn more about each of these video poker variations, check out our helpful summaries below.

Jacks or Better

Jacks or Better

Jacks or Better is the most common version of online video poker, making it a great starting point for beginners. The name refers to the fact that in this game a pair of jacks is the minimum winning hand.

Deuces Wild

Deuces Wild

In this version of the game, twos (‘deuces’ in French) are wild, meaning they can substitute for any other card. This can potentially help you to get a better hand!

This game is a variation on Jacks or Better, offering a higher-than-usual payout for four of a kind.

Double Bonus

This popular version of video poker also offers extra payouts for selected four-of-a-kind hands.

RTP is short for Return to Player, and is usually expressed as a percentage. Percentage return to player (% RTP) is the expected percentage of wagers that a specific game will return to the player in the long run.
