Video Poker Games

Online casinos offer a wide variety of different video poker games for their customers to play. Everything from the basic Jacks or Better to Mystery Bonus video poker. Video poker games usually fall into one of three categories:

  • Standard video poker games
  • Video poker games with wild cards
  • Video poker games with special bonuses


Standard Video Poker Games

Standard video poker games you will find online include Jacks or Better and All American Video Poker. These games are the bread and butter of traditional video poker games. There are no wild cards and no special bonuses to take into consideration. The lowest winning hand for these games is usually a pair of Jacks. I recommend this games to anyone who is new to playing video poker. On a side note, if you like slots games, have a look a good informational site about slot machines. Video Poker Baller is a pretty good resource too and these poker site download listings.

Video Poker Games With Wild Cards

Playing video with wild cards can get a little confusing to a novice player but it does not take long to get the hang of it. The software at most online casinos will automatically "hold" a wild card for you so you won't have to worry about throwing one away. Video poker games that include wild cards include Sevens Wild, Loose Deuces and Joker Poker. The lowest winning hand for these games is typically three of a kind.

Video Poker Games With Bonuses

Bonus video poker games are probably the most popular these days. These games can be played with wild cards and without wild cards. You can win special bonuses for getting certain hands. For example, in the Double Bonus video poker game if you get four of a kind there are three different payouts for different four of a kind hand strengths; 2-4, 5-k and four aces. Another type of bonus game is Mystery Poker. In this game the bonus hand will change each hand.
