Online Video Poker at Spin Casino

Video Poker is a relatively new casino game, having first been introduced in the 1970s.

As Video technology and capabilities improved, Video Poker became possible for the first time. Something of a cross between formal Poker tables and the fast-paced world of pokies, they were an instant hit.

In fact, these games were so popular that they were among the first introduced to online casinos. Since then they have been going from strength to strength, and the best versions in New Zealand can be found, or course, at Spin Casino.

Powered by Microgaming, their graphics and functionality are unsurpassed. All results are also created with certified, licensed Random Number Generation, so you can trust that they are completely fair.

How Does Video Poker Work?

These casino games are very simple to learn – indeed, this is part of their appeal.

Your aim is the same as in table Poker; to build the best 5-card hand, according to standard rankings, that you can. Before you get your cards or anything else happens, you need to place your bet of up to 5 coins.

After this, 5 cards from a single deck will be dealt, and will all appear on the screen at the same time. Up to this point, the game has been based on chance, but this is where you get to make some strategic moves. Once you've seen your hand, you can decide which cards to keep and which to exchange for new cards from the original deck.

Playing Video Poker Simplified

Although these casino games have elements of table Poker, they are clearly very pared-down.

Rather than seeing some cards at a time and then deciding what to do as a round progresses, you see your entire hand at once, and only have one chance to decide which cards to replace. In addition, quite obviously, there is no going against your tablemates. You don't have to worry about bluffing successfully, or interpreting the tells of your opponents.

What you do have is a chance to get familiar with Poker hand rankings, so that you can look at your cards and make very quick decisions. This is really useful in the card table versions, and allows you to concentrate on the more complex concepts.

Results and Payouts

As soon as the changes have been made to your hand, the round is over.

You are paid out according to the final 5-card line-up that you're holding, and how much you bet in the first place. This can get very lucrative, especially if you are playing the multi-hand versions of Video Poker, where each hand delivers its own returns.

Strategy Charts and Game Varieties

With casino games as popular as Video Poker, it is almost inevitable that several different versions arise over time.

Jacks or Better was the original, and is still very popular. Microgaming has also released several other options. While they all have the same essential structure, each has its own rules and twists. As you keep playing, you'll soon be able to decide what to do when you see your cards, but to start with you might want to make use of strategy charts.

These charts tell you, for every hand you could possibly have, which cards you should keep and which cards to discard. Use them on the Video Poker at Spin Casino, combined with our generous bonuses, to stand the best chance of a big payout.
