Video Poker Variations
Unlike many other more "social" casino games, video poker is more of a solo game. There are quite a few varieties of online video poker games that the VegasUSA online casino offers, such as Jacks or Better, Aces & Faces, Deuces Wild and Double Joker. Although there are quite a few different types of games, they are all relatively similar in nature because of their simple rules. This short article will deal with a few variations of online video poker.
Jacks Or Better
This game is generally regarded as the best game to start out with when learning video poker for the first time. The basic idea in this game is to get a pair of Jacks or higher and it is a fairly simple goal, especially for amateur players. Something many players forget, however, is that merely getting a pair of Jacks won't really win you any money, except the exact money that you put into the machine initially. So the real fun starts when you start getting higher ranking hands!
In this game, a standard 52-card deck is used. All four 2's (referred to as deuces) are then designated as wild cards. The minimum rank for a winning hand is three of a kind because of the bonus of the four deuce wild cards.
Aces & Faces
The object of the game is to get a five-card poker hand that contains a winning combination. Faces are Jacks, Queens or Kings. This game has no wild cards and the maximum payout is 4000 coins.
Tens Or Better
This game is very similar to Jacks Or Better, in that the only difference is that in Jacks Or Better, the lowest hand to receive a payout is a pair of Jacks whereas in Tens or Better, the lowest hand is a pair of tens.
