Video poker may not have the flashy graphics of slot machines, but that's just fine with video poker players. These games have stayed under the radar and as a result, have stayed true to traditional form. That means more payouts and lower house edge – something video poker machines have boasted since their inception in the '80s.

Video poker is the same as draw poker. You get dealt a hand of five cards, and choose which cards to hold. The undesirable ones are swapped for new ones. After the swap, you get paid if you have one of the hands listed on the paytable. The amount you're paid depends on the number of coins you bet.



Bonus Poker


Although offers five types of video poker, we're focusing on Bonus Poker – one game with four variants. The bonus is three unique payouts for Four of a Kind. The three tiers are:


Four of a Kind (Aces): 80

Four of a Kind (Twos to Fours): 40

Four of a Kind (Fives to Kings): 25

Full House: 8

Flush: 5

Straight: 4

Two Pairs: 2



Double Bonus Poker


For almost double the Four of a Kind payouts, check out Double Bonus Poker. This game offers more cash for your Four of a Kind, Full House, Flush, and Straight hands. The only drawback is a lower payout for landing two pairs.


Four of a Kind (Fives to Kings): 45

Four of a Kind (Twos to Fours): 80

Four of a Kind (Aces): 160

Full House: 10

Flush: 7

Straight: 5

Two Pairs: 1



Double Double Bonus Poker


You won't notice big differences in the payouts between Double Bonus Poker and Double Double Bonus Poker, but you will notice two extra ways to win top dollar payouts. Whereas the last two variants feature 11 winning hands on their paytables, Double Double Bonus Poker has 13. You get a whopping 400-coin payout on a 1-coin bet if you land four Aces with a 2, 3, or 4 for the kicker, and a 160-coin payout for landing four Twos, Threes, or Fours with an Ace, 2, 3, or 4 kicker. On top of that, it's a full pay machine with 9-6 payouts for full house and flush.


Four of a Kind and Kicker (Aces w/ 2, 3, or 4): 400

Four of a Kind and Kicker (Twos, Threes, or Fours w/ A-4): 160

Four of a Kind (Aces): 160

Four of a Kind (Twos to Fours): 80

Four of a Kind (Fives to Kings): 50

Full House: 9

Flush: 6

Straight: 4

Two Pairs: 1



Bonus Poker Deluxe


Bonus Poker Deluxe focuses less on extra hands and more on payouts. It offers payouts for nine hands, and the Four or a Kind payout is 80 coins on a 1-coin bet; it's not divided into tiers. That's better value than Bonus Poker's 25/40/80 payouts for their three tiers of Four of a Kind hands. Bonus Poker Deluxe also offers a bigger payout for landing a flush.


No matter which video poker you choose to play, you can rest assured that the biggest payout possible is the 4,000-coin jackpot for the Royal Flush. Make sure you're betting 5 coins a round to be eligible, and if that seems a bit much, decrease the denomination of each coin. Then it's time to draw your cards. Welcome to the video poker club.
