Electronic Poker is a popular game that is able to be wagered on in casinos all over the globe, or in your house on your computer, using a web connection. The rules are absolutely simple and consist of the player trying to get the greatest mixture of cards as you can in order to win cash. In this respect it’s very similar as a classic game of poker, minus the involvement with any other players. Of course, methods used in a real-life game of poker, such as tricking, will be irrelevant here.

The game of Electronic Poker starts when the enthusiast inserts credits (whether it’s tokens, credit slips or money) into the video poker machine and pushes the deal button. A hand of 5 cards will be electronically ‘handed out’ on the screen.

The Video Poker machine also has buttons with ‘hold’ printed on them, and gamblers should now pick which cards to keep and which to throw away. For the cards the bettor wishes to keep, the ‘hold’ buttons should be pressed so that they illuminate. The player can choose to keep any amount of cards they wish, whether it is all or none.

After the bettor has chosen which cards he would like to retain, they should press ‘deal’, at which point any new cards will be dealt if desired. The hand is now completed, with the Video Poker machine analyzing the cards to see if it is the same as any of the winning hands shown on the payment schedule.

Generally, the minimum winning hand on an Electronic Poker machine is a pair of jacks with the prize money increasing for each and every better hand. A common list of winning hands starts with jacks or better, and moves on to 2 pairs, 3 of a kinds, straights, flushes, full houses, four of a kinds, straight flushes and last but not least royal flushes. It goes without saying that the payout schedule can range from game to game, so that skillful enthusiasts are agile enough to pick the most profitable ones each and every time.

As soon as the initial round has completed, the player can either choose to remain on and try to to increase their earnings, or they can press the ‘collect’ button to cash out any cash that they may have won. Further, some styles of the game give the player a chance to increase their profits, in which case another round is played. There are also differences among specific games, with some decks of cards including wild cards and other differing characteristics to enhance playability.
