Video Poker is a highly popular, electronic version of traditional Poker that offers simple rules and game play. More specifically, Video Poker is a simplified variation of 5-Card Draw Poker, which many land-based and online poker rooms offer to their players at dedicated poker tables. Video Poker's simplicity has made it a common choice among beginners who have not yet mastered the rules and strategies of traditional Poker, although many seasoned players also enjoy a regular game here at Vegas Palms Casino.
An online Video Poker game begins with players selecting their games, choosing their bet limits, and clicking on the ‘Deal’ option. From there, you will choose the cards you would like to keep, and select ‘Draw’. You will be paid out according to standard poker hand combinations, although each version of online Video Poker has slightly different rules to provide variation and interest. Our online and mobile casinos offer many different versions of Video Poker for online play, each of which boasts differing payouts for specific poker hands.

The first predecessor to modern Video Poker was thought to have appeared at US casinos in 1981, introduced by Sittman and Pitt of New York. However, the game’s boom in popularity did not come until the late 80’s to early 90’s with the first modern Video Poker game – Draw Poker – was developed by SIRCOMA (who would later become iGaming giant International Game Technology).
Video Poker’s popularity at online casinos has been steadfast since it was introduced to the internet in the 1990’s. With that said, it was in the early 2000’s when the game truly took off, along with many other online forms of classic poker thanks to the proliferation of real money online poker rooms.
Video Poker offered beginners a convenient and unobtrusive way to learn more about poker without the competition of facing other players in poker rooms. Since then, the game has retained its popularity among players of all levels of skill, hence the wide range of titles offered by software experts like Microgaming.
The skills-based element of Video Poker has also made it attractive to those who enjoy a more challenging online casino experience. With that said, the most important strategy any player can employ in the game is one of bankroll management, which can be done by wagering at an affordable level until you are totally confident in your knowledge and skills.
