Knowing the correct poker hands for a win is essential. The advantage of playing redbet’s video poker games is that all the information on the winning combinations is available onscreen. In online video poker, you do not play against other players, and depending on the game variant you usually play with a 52 card pack. Some games will automatically save the best poker hand in others the choice is yours. Some of the older online games appear similar to the casino slots version, increasingly popular are the ones where the screen reflects a casino playing table, with one player on it! One of the first things to do in online poker games, after ensuring you know the game rules, is to understand the games betting limits, the minimum and maximum bet will be displayed on the table. The coins to make the bets can usually be found on the bottom right-hand side of your screen, with denominations that fit the betting limits. If you are new to a game, it is probably a good idea to play the game for free first. To commence playing you must first click on a coin and place your “Ante” bet. You then start the game by pressing “Deal”. Depending on the game, your cards will be placed in front of you and the dealers at the back of the table. Depending on your chosen game you will get anything from two to five cards presented to you. You then have to decide to ‘Call’. The call wager is double the amount of the ante. The cards are then all turned over, if not already, and the best poker hand decided by the rules wins. You can then continue to play by pressing ‘Re-bet’ for the same wager as before or ‘New Bet’ for a different amount. In video poker games the cards are shuffled before each play and then discarded. Some video games also have bonus options, allowing you to “Gamble” your wins.
POKER GAMES RULES
Poker games have relatively straightforward rules. First, you should know the ten winning hands which will help you understand the game in depth. “Royal Flush” is the strongest five-card hand and should have the King, the Queen, the Jack, Ten and an Ace of the same suit. The “Straight Flush” is five consecutive cards (like 5, 6, 7, 8, 9) of the same suit, and the highest straight wins. “Four of a Kind” means four cards from the 52 card deck that are of the same kind along with one different card. “Full House” is three Kings and two tens. A “Flush” is five cards of the same suit. A “Straight” is five consecutive cards of any suit. “Three of a Kind” means three cards of the same type and two different cards. The “Two Pair”, “One Pair” and “High Hand” are the last three kinds of winning hands. While the rules apply to all poker games, you can have some additions “Jokers Wild”; where you play with 53 cards, and as the name implies, Jokers are “Wilds” substituting for other cards to make a winning hand.
