What is Video Poker?

How to play video poker
A poker hand consists of five cards. Therefore you will get five cards and it is up to you to choose the cards that you want to keep or discard. The cards you choose to discard will be replaced by new cards which in turn form a new hand. If you are lucky, the new cards will create a winning combination in addition to yours. Since different video poker games have different rules, it's important to read about the rules of the game variant on which you've chosen to try your luck.

Videopoker vs Regular Poker
In video poker, you do not need a poker face because no other opponent can see you. In addition, one can take time when playing video poker online and you do not have to feel pressured by the other opponents. In video poker, place your wager and then you can choose which cards you want to keep or discard. In regular poker you have more than one round to wager, which is an advantage. However, more strategic thinking is required when playing regular poker together with good knowledge of how the game works. Given that poker play is much slower than video poker, it also requires a lot of patience.
