If you check the video poker section in any online casino you will discover galore of distinctions of the game. Taken across the entire online casinos the number of distinct video poker games may go beyond 70.
The regular video poker game is jacks or better. Entire hands that are ranked superior than a pair of jacks, depending on general poker hand rankings are rewarded as per a set payout table. Jacks or better is played with a regular 52-card deck. One of the original distinctions of video poker is Joker Poker. Joker Poker is played with a 53-card deck, the 53rd card being a joker that could replace for any distinct card. This enhances the number of potential blends that could be made. At the outset, it launched a blend of five of a kind that had four cards of the equal rank with the fifth card being a joker. Secondly it makes a distinction between a usual royal flush and a wild royal flush, the latter being a royal flush using a joker. So as to uphold the balance of the payouts, joker poker generally rewards with a pair of kings rather than a pair of jacks. This attitude was taken one step forward when a special card, generally the deuce, was chosen as the wild card. Then there was no requisite of a distinct joker. Any deuce served to perform as any card so as to make a winning blend. This distinction is known as deuces wild. Deuces wild actually boasts four jokers and hence any extra winning blends. Thus, the payout table starts with three of a kind.
Another fashion in which distinctions were launched in video poker is by splitting special paylines. By and large, it is the four of a kind payline that is split. In jacks or better four of a kind pays out at 25 to 1. In double aces and faces four aces payout at 160 to1, four of the same face card pays out at 80 to 1 and four of a kind of any distinct card pays out at 50 to 1. These boosted payouts are chronic by reducing the payouts of distinct winning paylines. Altogether, these four of a kind blend the fifth card is trivial. There is a distinction of double aces and faces in which the fifth card in four of a kind blend becomes significant. This distinction is recognized as ‘double double aces and faces’. In this distinction four aces with the fifth card being a face card pays out at 320 to 1, while four aces with the fifth card being from a deuce to a ten pays out at 160 to 1.
