The object of Video Poker is to get any of the winning combinations of poker hands. The winning combinations and the payout schedule are listed on a poker payout schedule attached to the machine.
You deposit coins into the machine to place your wager. The bet must be placed before you draw your cards, and can't be changed once play starts.
Video Poker Features
Once your cards have been dealt to you , You then decide if you wish to keep any of the cards in your hand. If you do you push the “Hold/Cancel” button under the card(s) you wish to keep. In the event you change your mind and don't wish to keep a previously held card push the “Hold/Cancel” button a second time and the hold will be canceled. Make sure that there is conformation on the screen that you have held the cards that you want to hold (the word “hold” flashes under your held cards). Press the Draw/Deal button a second time to obtain new cards for those not held. If you have a winning hand the machine pays off and is then ready for another game.
Some video poker games offer a DOUBLE UP this means that you can DOUBLE your winning hand by selecting the DOUBLE BUTTON
If you select the DOUBLE BUTTON you must try and beat the card that the dealer has drawn e.g
Dealer has drawn a 6 ( suit does not matter )
Player (you) have drawn a King, well done you have doubled your money
If you are feeling really lucky you can DOUBLE again and so on until you feel like collecting your win.
IF you win a ROYAL FLUSH , you will not be given the chance to DOUBLE UP
Remember that if the dealer draws an ACE it is the highest card and the only way you can beat the dealer is if you also draw an ACE or in some poker games the JOKER , JOKER WINS ALL IN THIS CASE ( DEALER OR PLAYER )
Poker is by far my favorite and have spent many hours playing what I believe to be the best game available , for any one who wants to start off I suggest that POKER IS THE BEST WAY TO GO you can play as fast or as slow as you like and you can choose what cards you want play
TIP: ALWAYS TRY AND PLAY MAX BET PER GAME / HAND ( COIN/NOTE SIZE IS YOUR CHOICE )
TIP: ALWAYS TRY AND GO FOR THE ROYAL FLUSH
TIP: THINK CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU BREAK UP A WINNING HAND, IN SOME CASES I HAVE BROKEN UP A WINNING HAND TO GO FOR A BIGGER WINNING HAND, AND WON, BUT THIS IS NOT ALWAYS THE CASE
SO ENJOY AND HAVE FUN!!!!
The following hands win, ordered top to bottom from the best hands to the worst respectively:

Remember that the cards will not usually be in order when displayed on the screen, be careful when looking at your hand! Some video poker games will not make you aware of a hand/potential hand
