Live Video Poker
A Live Casino classic that's now common in the online world, video poker on Betfair Casino offers a great way to make money and test your powers of logic and deduction. Each round of video poker begins with a player exchanging an amount of money, on Betfair this can be less than £1, for five cards.
At this point, the aim of the game is that players must make a rank and beat the dealer through a process of holding or swapping any (or all) of their cards. Depending on the form of video poker in action, the minimum winning hand will change. However, in general, a winner will be a high ranking pair and above, including:
- 5 of a kind (All 5 cards the same rank. Requires a wild card) – Only available in some games*
- Royal flush (An Ace high straight flush)
- Straight flush (A straight that is also a flush)
- 4 of a kind (All 4 cards are the same rank)
- Full house (3 of a kind and another pair)
- Flush (All 5 cards the same suit)
- Straight (5 cards in a row)
- 3 of a kind (3 cards of the same rank)
- 2 pair (2 cards of the same rank and 2 other cards of the same rank)
- 1 pair (2 cards of the same rank)
Inside the video poker lobby on Betfair Casino, there’s a wealth of options, but the main games fall into these broad categories:
Jacks or better: This game requires you to hold a pair of jacks or higher in order to qualify for a win. Beyond this the standard video poker and mobile video poker ranking system is used.
All American Video Poker: This game is based on jacks or better but has an increased payout structure. In this game flushes, straights and straight flushes award greater payouts than in a standard game. In contrast, full houses and two pairs offer reduced rewards.
Tens or Better: Similar to jacks or better, this game requires you to make a pair of tens or better to win a prize.
Deuces Wild: In this game a two can count for any other card (known as a wild card). For example, if you held a pair of jacks and a pair of twos, your hand would become four jacks.
Bonus Poker and Double Bonus Poker: These are lucrative variations of jacks or better video poker.
