The game of video poker is the same in online casinos as in brick and mortar casinos. Derived from draw poker, video poker is similar to slots machine in some aspect, and more attractive for players who prefer card games than just watching wheels with numbers.
Below is a picture of one of the video poker games offered by Gocasino. It is "Deuces Wild", one of the most popular video poker variations.
To take the example of deuces wild above, the screen shows the payout for each hand, and the best prize is for a royal flush, where you get 250 times your bet. Four deuces gives another great payout at 200 times your bet.
The game is called deuces wild because the deuces act as jokers and can replace any card, increasing the chances of hitting a big hand.
For each hand you play, you will first get 5 cards, and you can choose to "hold" any of them, by pressing the hold button. The other cards will be redrawn.
Video poker is a great game to pass time and you do not need to invest a lot of money. You can play with "play money" at most online casinos, or if you want to play with real money, you can make bets as low as a few cents.
If you like card games and know poker hands, then try video poker and see for yourself if you have fun playing it or not.
