Video Poker is an electronic casino game based on five-card draw Poker and at River Belle Casino players in Trinidad and Tobago can enjoy the online version n all its glory.
The very appeal of online Video Poker is that the basics are very easy to pick up on and you don’t need to be a Poker Master in order to play online Video Poker. By the same token, online Video Poker may be a very easy game to learn as far as the rules of play go but, much like conventional Poker, it’s not all that easy to learn how to play well. This is most probably the very essence of the wide appeal enjoyed by Online Video Poker – the fact that it’s not entirely based on luck. Strategy and skill will greatly improve your chances of success.
Play One on One and Win
New players are immediately drawn to Online Video Poker due to the fact that it’s what’s known as a “first person” game. What this means is that there’s no need to “read” the opponent, as is the case around a conventional Poker table. There is also no need to beat the opponent’s hand, as really, there is no opponent. The main aim is simply to try and get as good a hand as possible.
What counts as a good hand will vary from game to game. Luckily, at River Belle Casino, all games are available on the practise tables – including online Video Poker. Players are able to try their hand at new games without having to wager any real money.
The Mechanics of Online Video Poker
Despite the variety of online Video Poker games, the basic mechanics always remain the same. A new game commences as soon as the player places a bet of one or more credits and clicks on the “Deal” button in order to draw cards. Cards may be kept or replaced by new cards from the pack. Players aren’t obliged to exchange any cards at any stage, but may opt to do so in search of a better hand of cards.
After the drawing process has been completed, the game’s software will perform an evaluation of the player’s hand, comparing it to the winning hands posted by the game on its electronic table. In the event of a match, the player wins.
Taking It Up A Notch with Progressive Online Video Poker
River Belle Casino is also proud to present the Progressive Online Video Poker game. The Progressive Online Video Poker game offers larger payouts for better quality hands such as a Royal Flush. When playing one of the conventional online Video Poker games, the payout for a Royal Flush would be pre-specified on the game’s usual paytable. A Progressive Online Video Poker game, on the other hand, will offer an escalated payout for a feat such as this. The jackpot accumulates with every wager placed, until its won!
