The popularity of poker as a table game has also increased the popularity of online video poker. Even though table poker and online video poker are similar in most areas, there are some specific guidelines and tips that you should follow when taking on the video variation.
By knowing what you are doing, and how the game is played, you will increase your odds of being successful.

The rules for online video poker are very easy to understand, even if you have never played the game before.� The first thing that you will need to remember is that the ranking of the hands in video poker are exactly the same as they are in poker that you would play at a table.�

The main difference between table and online video poker is the way that bluffing is used. When you are at a table, you can bluff as little or as much as you want in order to throw your competition off. In video poker, since you are playing against the machine, you will not be able to bluff.� Your goal should be to simply get the best hand possible.�

After you understand the rules and you have found a machine that you like, you will be ready to get started.� After inserting your money into the machine, you will press the deal/draw button in order to get the game underway.� By doing this, you will be given five cards.� After you get your cards and properly assess them, you will have the opportunity to either hold them or get rid of them.� This is done by pressing the corresponding button that is shown underneath each card. Remember, you can throw away or keep as many cards as you want.

As soon as you decide which cards to hold and which ones to get rid of, you will again hit the deal/draw button. By doing this you will be given new cards if you had opted to get rid of any of the ones that you have.�

If your new cards give you a winning hand, you will be paid; it is that simple!

There are three types of online video poker games that are very popular.� They include Deuces Wild, Jacks or Better, and Jokers Wild.

If you have decided to play Deuces Wild you will want to remember that you can use the deuces, or two’s, as wild cards. In other words, you can use these cards in any way that you want; any rank, any suit.

When you are playing Jacks or Better, the lowest winning combination that you can get is a pair of jacks, hence the name.

Joker’s Wild is played with the standard 52 cards, but there is also a joker card that is added into the deck to spice up the action a bit.� In this variation of online video poker, the joker is the wild card and you can use it in whatever way you want.�

Overall, online video poker has taken off in popularity.� If you love poker, and are looking for an easy to understand and fun way to play, you should consider getting involved with this growing trend.
