Video Poker

Video poker found its popularity in the 1980’s after Si Redd’s Coin Machines (SIRCOMA) introduced a draw Poker machine in the 1970. Players found this machine far more user friendly and less intimidating than sitting at a poker table and hence more and more casinos started installing them.

Each Video Poker game comes with its own theme and colour scheme. At the bottom of each screen you will find hold buttons and Bet One, Bet Max, Deal and Cash Out buttons. These are used to either hold the cards that you wish to keep and to place the amount that you wish to bet.

The deal button will offer you a change in cards for the cards that you have wished to discard. Now your winnings will be calculated and displayed on the screen and put into a kitty. It is only when the Cash Out button is pushed, that all your winnings will be taken and added to your account.
