Online Video Poker
Playing online video poker has a lot of resemblance to playing slots. You require placing your bets and clicking on the play button to spin the wheels. But in the case of video poker, when you press play the machine spins to deal you a card. You engage the machine 2 times to give you two cards for a start. You continue to engage the machine to give you more cards then you choose to drop some cards. The machine replaces the cards you choose to discard and then the machine weighs your hands in comparison to the standard poker hand scale. If a player wins he can double his prize if he picks one out of five cards the machine provides (face down). If the player is lucky enough to pick a card that has higher value than the one the machine picked randomly, then player wins a double of his bet.
