Types of Video Poker Machines

There a lot of video poker machines that you'll find when you visit different casinos. There are video poker machines that play our basic five-card draw poker and there are machines that use a different variant. There is also a variant that uses wild cards. We'll discuss what common types of video poker machines you'll find out there.

Most video poker machines would fall into two basic categories: multi-hand video poker machines and progressive video poker machines. A multi-hand video poker machine is one that allows us to play video poker with more than one hand at a time. There are machines that would let you play with three hands to even a hundred hands all at the same time.

A multi-hand video poker machine is quite exciting but at times can be a bit complicated if you're not used to playing more than one poker hand at a time. On the other hand, the progressive video poker machines also attract a following. Progressive video poker machines have progressive jackpots like a slot machine.

The amount of the jackpot in a progressive video poker machine grows as the machine is being played. The growth of the money in this video poker machine depends on how much money is played on it. The jackpot on this video poker machine usually starts at a base amount and then gradually goes up as people play it.

The progressive jackpot is usually displayed on the screen. If you hit the jackpot on this video poker machine, then the amount goes back to the base amount and starts to build up from there.

Another type of video poker machine is the full pay game machine. A full pay video poker machine offers maximum payback percentages. Payback percentages for this type of video poker machine would sometimes reach over a hundred percent (that is if you get to play your game perfectly).

The most common type of video poker machine you'll find around are Jacks or better video poker machines. Payoffs for this type of machine begin with a pair of jacks. The returns you might get on a full pay machine of this type go up to 99.54%.

Deuces Wild is a type of video poker machine that uses wild cards. Wilds cards take the value of any card you wish to form a great poker hand. This type of video poker machine theoretically gives a payoff up to a hundred percent (this estimate doesn't consider human error as a factor though).

There are still more video poker machines out there and we can expect more to come in the future. Video poker is a truly fast-paced casino game.
