So, get ready before playing! You are not sure that you will like it and you want something different? Something light and easy? Here you go! Play slots! You can win a lot by simply inserting coins in the machine! The only problem here is that a choice of slot machines is so wide that it is very difficult to choose the best one.
You don’t like table games? You don’t like slots? You want to play something different, something between these games? Any casino will meet your wishes! The game for you then is Video Poker. Video Poker is something between a regular Poker (table game) and slots. Video Poker is a relative new invention. It is a merger of sorts between a traditional Poker and a slot machine. The game is very easy to play. The objective is to form the strongest hand. Hand ranking is the same as in a regular Poker. But unlike a regular Poker Video Poker has a lot of variations. I managed to find about 100 Video Poker games. I will not be surprised if you know even more.
Video Poker games are very popular now and as you can see it is not for nothing. If you play Video Poker games of course you know the rules, tips and strategies for the game, but there are some other interesting facts about Video Poker, which are not so well known.
Do you know, for example, the number of all possible card combinations in a 52-card Video Poker game? If you don’t I will tell you. There are 2, 598 960 possible card combinations. Rather difficult to believe, isn’t it? As you can guess you will get one of these combination. RNG, which is an integral part of every Video Poker machine, will choose this combination. Moreover, RNG works even when nobody plays the machine. So, it is impossible to predict what card combination will come out.
As I have already mentioned there appear more and more Video Poker games and you have to be very careful here! You can be entrapped! Traditional Video Poker games’ maximum bet is 5 coins, while in new machines it can be as high as 90 coins! The only advice here is to read the information printed on the machine very attentively before playing and never to be in hurry to press a “Max Bet” button. Otherwise you can bet all your credits even without knowing it.
Nobody can steal your Royal Flush. If you leave the machine and another player takes your seat and gets a Royal Flush it doesn’t mean that if you had stayed you would have got Royal Flush. As I have already said RNG works all the time. The chance of getting a Royal Flush is 1:40,000. But even if you have played 39,999 hands it doesn’t mean that the next combination will be a Royal Flush.
Video Poker is for those who have never played table games, but want to. So, try Video Poker and then it will be much easier to begin playing table Poker and other table games. Maybe knowing these facts about Video Poker will help you in some ways. At least you can predict the chances of getting this or that winning combination and your chances of winning.
