To play a video poker machine, you simply insert one or more coins (usually up to a maximum of five) and push "deal" button. Five cards are dealt to you on screen. You choose ones you want to hold by pushing "hold" button underneath each card.
You then push "deal" button again and you will be dealt number of cards you choose not to keep, to form your final, five card poker hand. If you end up with a winning combination, you are paid according to payout schedule.
It's as simple as that! Many video poker machines have a payout schedule that is 97 or 98%. In another article, we'll explain schedule with best odds.
Until then, good luck!
