Poker is a very popular cardgame and often there is money involved, there are even tournaments and the biggest one is called the world series of poker with a one million dollar prize. Videopoker is a computerized version of the game that removes any human players and it simply has you trying to get the best hand you can with five cards. You can bet up to five coins and the more you bet the more you win, IF you win that is.

Firstoff you’ll have to insert one or more coins and then you can draw, you will be presented with the five cards that you drew. Then you can select which of the cards to hold and you can draw new cards for the ones that you don’t want. If after the second draw you have a winning hand you will get a payout and if not you lose you money. A winning hand consists of at least a pair which will win you your money back but if you get better hands like a straight or a full house you will make a good profit which usually goes right back in the machine to try for even more profit.

Video poker might not be everyones kind of game as playing with a bunch of friends is a lot more fun as you can bluff players into thinking you have a better hand than you really do. This is a vital part of playing poker and removing it by using a machine takes a lot of the fun away. Still I do like videopoker as you’ll never lose a single dollar but ofcourse this also means that you never win any either :) Anyway if you’re looking for a very simple game of videopoker with no special options and stuff then check this game out.
