Online Casino Video Poker Results And Payouts

Once you completed betting on your hand, the video poker round concludes. Your payout is determined by the final 5-card hand you hold and the initial amount you wagered.

In online casino video poker, the payout structure varies depending on the specific game and the hand rankings. Generally, higher-ranking hands such as a Royal Flush and Straight Flush yield larger payouts, while lower-ranking hands like One Pair and Two Pairs offer smaller rewards. Additionally, playing multi-hand versions of video poker can potentially increase the overall payout, as each hand delivers its own returns.

In general, the payouts for winning hands when you play video poker online are based on the strength of the hand and the amount of the initial bet. It's always a good idea to review the rules and payouts for the specific casino video poker game you are playing.
