UK Online Video Poker

Jacks or Better Poker at Betfair

Jacks or Better at InterCasino

Whilst not the most popular casino game in UK landbased casinos, Video Poker does have a very large online following and this is due, in part, to the strategy required to play the game, and of course the ever present chance of you winning a very large jackpot.

There are dozens of different varieties of Video Poker available and the most important part of each game is the pay table.

By doing a little bit of research you can often find Video Poker games that have a very high payout percentage, often with paying out odds of over 99%.

This section of the website will show you not only the best Video Poker games but we will also show you where you can play them online on the internet for free or for real money.

The most popular Video Poker game is Jacks or Better and above you can see the variant that is available to play at Betfair, simply give the picture above a click to view the full sized version of the Video Poker game.

How to Play Video Poker

If you have never played online or offline then you will need to know how to play Video Poker, and to be perfectly honest it will take a coupe of minutes for you to master the game!

You first need to decide the stake levels you wish to play for, one sound Video Poker tip is to always play for stakes that your budget will allow, Casino Cruise for example will let you play for very small stakes of just 5p. You are allowed to play up to five coins per hand, and it is important that you always try and play with five coins activated as by doing so you always get the best payouts and Video Poker Odds.

Once you have chosen the number of coins you are playing you simply need to click the start or deal button, you are then dealt out five cards. The aim of the game is to end the game with one of the poker hands listed on the paytable. You can then hold any five of the cards and will be dealt another card to replace those you haven't held.

Another good Video Poker tip is to play at a casino such as Casino Cruise, as they have a feature called auto hold, this will automatically hold the best cards for you, thus stopping you from making any playing strategy errors.

Some Video Poker games also let you gamble any winnings you have won, what will happen if you choose to gamble is that you will be dealt five cards one face up and the other four face down, to win the gamble and double your money you simply have to pick one of the face down cards which you think is higher than the face up card. An incorrect guess will however, mean you lose and the game is over.

The above image is the Deuces Wild Video Poker game as found at our featured Video Poker site that is Casino Cruise. They offer both a no download and fully downloadable internet casino and have dozens of Video Poker variants on offer.

Video Poker Strategy

Apart from finding a Video Poker game with a generous paytable one of the best Video Poker strategies you may be interested in is what is called the suck and dump mode.

Many players believe that a Video Poker machine is either in "suck" mode, this is when the game takes and takes your money without giving you any decent payouts, this can often be the case when a Video Poker machine has just paid out, so the best tip we can give you is that if, in the first ten games you make on any Video Poker game, you don't get any decent poker hands then stop playing that particular game as it may have just paid out, this is one of the best Video Poker tips we can give you on how to win at Video Poker!

Conversely the Video Poker game may be in "dump" mode, this is when the game is paying out hand after hand, so another Video Poker strategy playing tip is that if you find a machine giving you lots of hits, keep on playing it as that illusive Royal Flush (the top payout) may be just around the corner!
