The video poker game in the online casinos or casinos flash is not as popular as other games. However, if you are able to understand the basics of this game, you should try it at least once. You will be fascinated, not only about the entertaining part of the game, but also about the increased possibility to win some great money.
While the rules of the video poker game are somewhat based on the classical Omaha poker, there are some differences also. The video poker game will generate five cards. Your goal is to make the perfect combination with them. The combinations are winning just as they are in poker. The difference is that any combination wins in video pokers, and another important difference is that you have no opponent. Well, you will have an opponent, but we are not talking about other players, we are talking about the game’s computer.
Even a simple pair will bring you some money. In fact, you will only get your money back, but it is better than nothing. The smallest winning is 2:1 stake, and you will get it with two pairs. There are also other combinations possible, and the majority of them will bring you some serious money. If you have a good combination such as a flush or a full house, you will get some great prizes.
Another difference between the video poker game and poker is the fact that the combinations will have the same prizes. Meaning that a flush made of three sixes and two eights will bring you the same amount of money as a combination made of three aces and two kings. This is also the result of the lack of an opponent, and it is an advantage of the player over the house.
Once you have the five cards in your hand, you will have to place your bet. The money management strategy is determining for the future of the game, as you will sometimes be tempted to bet more than you can afford, just because you have a good initial combination. This is not a great idea, as you will break the money management principles, and even if this strategy allows you to win once or twice, you will start losing at a certain moment.
You are allowed to change three cards. The resulted combination is your final result, and you will be awarded accordingly. Sometimes, it is needed to change all the cards, and there are also some variations of the video poker game that will allow you to change five cards.
