HOW TO PLAY
The Royal Flush is the highest payout that you’re able to get when playing this game. You’re able to take home the jackpot and some. However, this can be harder to get than not – so making sure to pay close attention to the cards that you’re dealt is a must.
Anything that is jacks or higher is able to win something on the win out schedule, so keep this in mind when it is your turn to hit or stay at the table.
The game is played much like traditional poker, the only difference is that it is video poker and that they use a payout schedule that determines how much you win, compared to having a pot in the middle that the winner would take home.
You are handed out a hand of cards, each with a different value and you have to try to make a hand out of them. You can go with anything, any poker hand that you choose, since each will pay out but generally, people like to stick to the higher hands and valued cards to get a higher payout.
There are three times when you can discard, pick up new cards and so on. This can help if you’re not dealt a good hand to begin with. Pay attention during these times, as well. You can see if some of your other players are getting anything good as well depending on the amount of cards that they choose to pick up – or if they choose to stay during this time.
At the end of the game, you can then put your hand down, if you have anything or fold so that someone else might be able to win the payout.
Generally, since it is a video poker game, you’re not playing against other players – which is why they have the payout schedule there for you to use. The higher your hand, the higher the payout. Which is why when you fold, and do not have a hand – you lose your bet and do not win anything, either.
