We know that you have to be familiar with the way video poker works; after all, it is not all that much different than a game of five-card draw that you played in the living room with friends when you were younger (or might still playing now). When this is applied to a digital gambling game, the action can be fast and furious. The good thing about video poker is that even if you are transitioning from being a land-based casino player to one that spends much of your time online, the interface is virtually the same. And if you look around the physical casino atmosphere, you will probably find some video poker games that are also in an online casino.
But when it comes to playing in cyberspace, the king of all video poker is undoubtedly Microgaming, which has put together more variations than anyone else in the world, and has figured out more exciting ways to play them. And when it comes to playing Microgaming video poker, the best place to do it is at Jackpot City Casino, which is not only powered by Microgaming, but also carries a full complement of their products.
Obviously beginners are probably better off playing Jacks or Better, or perhaps Tens or Better, which are based on a very simple premise. But really, no matter which variation you play, it’s not all that complicated, which is what makes video poker such a user-friendly game at Jackpot City. There are games in which Deuces are wild, games where aces and face cards take on an added value (in a game appropriately named “Aces and Faces”), and games that have special bonus payouts for certain card combinations (Double Bonus or Double Double Bonus). Whichever of these variations you wish to play, Jackpot City, through the facilities of Microgaming, can make it easy for you, even if you’re just a beginner. In fact, even if you don’t know any strategy, you can play, because there is an option called “Autohold,” in which the computer program will play your hands for you, and put you in a position you can win at least something after the draw.
Microgaming also makes available another very interesting way you can play video poker, which is to play many hands at a time. In fact, you can play 100 at once on a video poker game at Jackpot City. That would seem rather dizzying, from the standpoint of player decisions, but calm down; you’re playing the same hand, which means that you are going to catch a payout on each of the hands if you come out a big winner. The procedure on these games is pretty standard; you are dealt five cards, and then you will click buttons on the cards you wish to hold onto. The remaining cards are thrown out, and when you click the “Draw” button, you get new cards. Instantaneously, you are notified as to whether you have a winning combination. There’s no mystery to it, however, as the pay table that is right in front of your eyes gives you a whole list of those combinations, including the corresponding payouts for each of them. Customarily, you are going to get proportionately the best payouts if you play the maximum of five coins. And every video poker player’s dream is to hit the Royal Flush, and if you stay on this game long enough, you WILL hit it, believe us when we tell you!
