Video Poker Facts

Throughout the years, video poker machines have developed variants of the basic five-card draw. Typical variations are as follows:

  • Deuces Wild - where a two can serve as a wild card and a jackpot is paid for four deuces or a natural royal.

  • Pay Schedule Modification - where four aces with a five or smaller kicker pays an enhanced amount (these games usually have some adjective in the title such as "bonus", "double", or "triple")

  • Multi-play Poker - where the player starts with a base hand of five cards, and each additional played hand draws from a different set of cards with the base hand removed. (Multi-play games are offered in "Triple Play", "Five Play", "Ten Play", "Fifty Play" and even "One Hundred Play" versions.)

  • In the non-wild games (games which do not have a wild card) a player who plays five or six hundred hands per hour, on average, may receive the rare four-of-a-kind approximately once per hour, while a player may play for many days or weeks before receiving an extremely rare royal flush.
