Beat the bluff with online video poker

Video poker has become one of the most popular online casino games, and is also a firm favourite at land-based casinos. You can find a variety of video poker games at Platinum Play Australia, conveniently available at your fingertips, and infusing the fun of playing poker online with the traditional, computerised video poker format.

Where does video poker come from?

When the idea of the personal computer was just starting to become a reality in the mid-1970s, television-like monitors with central processing units that offered video poker games also started to gain prominence. 

This trend was mainly due to the economy of the units, which grew in popularity in casinos (especially during the 1980s), basing the game on the five-card draw version of play. Part of the attraction was the the fact that the units appeared far less intimidating than their social, human counterpart. Video poker units now regularly occupy the casino floor space with the same authority of a traditional casino table game.

Why should I play video poker?

  • It offers you a very low house edge,
  • Gives you larger wins
  • Allows you to use a strategic game plan. 

What this means is that you, the player, has some control over whether you win or not. Plus, video poker has been specifically designed to give you the comfort of not having to play in a highly competitive, social environment, with a smooth and simple computerised interface that allows you to strategise calmly and enjoy the gameplay.

How do I play?

Firstly, you’ll choose your bet. Then, you’ll be dealt five cards: you must select the cards you’d like to keep and which you’d like to discard, making sure you hold onto the cards which give you the best possible hand.

The cards you’ve discarded will be used as leftover cards in the deck , and you'll be paid out according to the value of your hand. Learn the rank of the winning hands well and use them as a strategy to play to each hand’s strength. The majority of video poker games are played with a 52-card deck, and in “Joker’s Wild”-type games, one or several jokers are added to the pack to represent any card you may need to complete a winning hand.

Get the winning strategy

The strategy you use is dependent on the type of online video poker game you choose to play. However, regardless of the game, half of your advantage will come from knowing the winning hands in and out and which particular hands have a higher chance of paying out and occuring. To learn more about the various hands and their payouts,  refer to the game’s return tables. The game may also come with a strategy guide and some useful tips to bear in mind when playing.                                       

What does Double Bonus mean?

Double bonus  means that you will be offered an additional, amazing way to increase your winnings. Hooray!So how does it work?

All you need to do is draw a card that holds a higher value than the dealer’s card. If you win against the dealer, you will continue onto another bonus doubling round to get even more – however, if you lose, you will simply return to the game you were playing.
