The game is played using the standard deck of 52 cards.
Video Poker Description
At the top of the videopoker's screen is a table
of the winning combinations and the corresponding payouts.
Lower down the screen is the place
where the player's cards are dealt.
At the bottom of the screen
are three indicators showing the player's credit balance ("Credits"),
the winning sum for the last combination ("Payout") and
the current bet in tokens ("Coins").
Even lower down, on the bottom panel are the control buttons:
- to adjust the value of the tokens ("-", "+" and
the indicator showing the current token value),
- to insert one token ("Bet One"),
- to insert the maximum number of tokens ("Bet Max") and
- to deal/change the cards ("Deal" / "Change")
The game is played with tokens worth 5, 10, 25 or 50 cents
or 1, 2, 5, 10 or 15 dollars (or your account's currency).
The maximum number of tokens is 6.
The player can adjust the value of the tokens
before each game by pressing the "-" and "+"
button, having the current balance of the player's tokens recounted ("Credits" indicator).
By pressing the "Bet One" button, the player can increase the bet by one token.
Having pressed the "Bet Max" button,
the player can increase the bet to the maximum (six tokens).
After that the cards will be dealt automatically.
The Rules of the Game
Having placed his bet, the player presses the "Deal" button
and receives his cards. Having looked at his cards, he must decide which of them
to keep and which to exchange in the hope of strengthening his hand.
For example, if all or some of the cards he has been dealt form a winning
combination, or part of one, it is worth keeping these cards and hence
increasing the probability of a win.
Click on the appropriate card or on the corresponding "Hold" button
beneath the card to hold it. When all the necessary cards have been held,
click the "Change" button and the machine will
change the remaining (non-held) cards.
In the event of a winning combination the size of the winnings depends
on the combination. Both the combination and the corresponding winnings
light up on the payout table at the top of the machine. The winnings
will then be added to the player's account.
The table below shows all possible winning combinations.
The payoffs for these combinations are stated in the videopoker's payout table and
may differ depending on the number of tokens inserted.
