Electronic Poker is a popular game that usually will be enjoyed in casinos across the globe, or alternatively at your house on your PC, using an Internet connection. The rules are absolutely straightforward and involve the player attempting to achieve the greatest combination of cards as you can in order to win money.

The game of Electronic Poker starts when the bettor puts credits (either tokens, credit slips or money) into the video poker machine and presses the deal button. A 5 card hand will then be electronically ‘handed out’ on the video screen.

The Electronic Poker game also has buttons with ‘hold’ printed on them, and bettors will need to now choose which cards to hold and which to discard. For the cards the enthusiast would like to keep, the ‘hold’ buttons must be pressed so that they illuminate. The player can choose to keep any amount of cards they want, from all to none.

After the bettor has selected which cards he or she wishes to keep, they should press ‘draw’, at which point any fresh cards will be dealt if desired. The hand is now finished, with the Video Poker machine scanning the cards to see if it is the same as any of the winning hands printed on the payout schedule.

Normally, the lowest succeeding hand on a Video Poker machine is a pair of jacks with the prize money growing for each better hand. A list of common winning hands starts with jacks or better, moving on to two pairs, three of a kinds, straights, flushes, full houses, 4 of a kinds, straight flushes and finally royal flushes. It is obvious that the payment schedule can change from machine to machine, so that experienced gamblers are able to pick the most money-making ones every instance.

As soon as the first round has finished, the player can either choose to stay on in an attempt to maximize their earnings, or press the ‘collect’ button to cash out any money that might have been won. Additionally, several styles of the game allow the enthusiast an opportunity to increase their profits, in which instance a further hand is played. There are also differences between individual machines, with some virtual decks having wild cards and other varying aspects to enhance playability.
