Video Poker Basics

Video Poker games are based on the traditional poker. A set of cards are dealt to players after placing the first bet, the Ante bet. Usually, the number of cards is five but other versions play with fewer cards and fewer decks. After the Ante bet the player can choose to continue playing after receiving the first batch of cards. That is if the players think they can. When the player thinks they have a bad chance of winning they can fold and lose the initial Ante Bet. To continue playing the player has to place another bet. On most versions, this bet is equal or more than the Ante bet. More cards are dealt to complete the five card hand. If the player’s hand is better than the dealer’s payouts are awarded. This basic structure changes from game to game as the game designer’s wish.

Many internet casinos in SA offer free video poker games. This is a great opportunity for players to perfect their video poker skills. The benefits of playing these games in free mode are numerous. They include mastering techniques that can be used to win real money on the game.
