What’s the Best Video Poker Game?
Well, as they say: “that depends” (groan). Jacks or Better is probably the most popular game, and indeed it should deliver you a high “RTP” (return to player)- something in the region of 99.5% if you play your cards right (which is pretty phenomenal when you think that the Payout on American Roulette is less than 95%). But Deuces Wild is also good. Again- it depends at which casino you play.
Please check out our individual video poker games pages where you’ll be able to play the game for free (no registration) and gain an understanding of how best to play the game.
Multi-hand or Single Hand Video Poker?
One of the big innovations in the world of video poker (both online and land-based incidently) is the rise of multi-hand video poker, also known as Power Video Poker where you can play up to 100 hands simultaneously. This is certainly a very addictive version of the game- but just be aware that the odds are the same whether you play single-hand or multi-hand. If you play the 100 hand version, it will tend to average your results out. But if you do draw some nice cards, you can bring in some hefty wins.
