Playing Cards and Chips
Video poker is essentially based on five card draw poker but there are no other players to play against. There are no physical cards dealt either, as video poker is played on machines and not on card tables.
The objective is simply to make the best hand possible, as payouts are decided by hand strength. There are several variations of the game and there’s some strategy involved in knowing which cards to keep and which cards to discard. With optimal play and the right circumstances, it’s possible to make the house edge almost non-existent.
