The game features the structure of a pokie machine but is basically draw poker in digital form. Want to play a round? All you need to do is pick five cards you’d like to hang onto and substitute the rest. The strategy here lies in your choice of cards and varies depending on the type of online video poker that you play.
Here at Ignition Casino, we’ve got 11 online video poker games for you to explore. Some of these games even feature bonus payments and wild cards. Yeah. So don’t say we never do anything for ya!
In other versions, you can play with multiple hands per round or have a show-down with the dealer directly. But we’ll get into all that later.
Let’s dive right into this casino poker guide and break down all the online video poker variants available right now at Ignition Casino.
Online Video Poker: An Overview
When you’re first starting in playing real-money online video poker, you’re likely wondering: what’s the best strategy for choosing a game? Well, the answer to that largely depends on the experience you want.
At Ignition Casino, you’ve three main ways of playing video poker. If you’re keen on classic poker play, opt for our traditional type. If you’re hoping to boost your earnings, have a go at the bonus type. If you’re on the hunt for something new and cool, check out our wild type.
Below, we take a look at some of the key details of each type so you can maximise your play in each version.
As the name suggests, traditional online video poker is…well, super traditional. You won’t find any frills or bells and whistles here. But don’t get us wrong – they’re still heaps fun to play. They provide fair payouts for all poker hands and even boast a 4,000-coin jackpot for a Royal Flush (when you wager the max amount). A great example of a classic online video poker game is Jacks or Better. In online casinos, you can play with one, three, 10, or even 52 hands per round. This makes it easier for you to score that uber profitable Royal Flush and boost your bankroll!
Bonus online video poker is a lot like traditional online video poker, but flashier. For example, rather than a 125-coin reward for a Four of a Kind, a bonus online video poker game might break up your Four of a Kind hands into different levels of quality. You’d then receive unique payouts for each individual tier. At Ignition, Bonus Poker Deluxe features five unique payouts for Four of a Kind hands, ranging from 250 up to 2,000 (for a five-coin wager).
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: variety is the spice of life here at Ignition. That’s why we offer a stellar variety of bonus online video poker games, including Bonus Poker, Bonus Poker Deluxe, Double Bonus Poker, Double Double Bonus Poker, Double Jackpot Poker, and Double Double Jackpot Poker.
Now let’s talk about wild card online video poker. These games feature a card that can substitute for any card in the deck, helping you score more wins. As an example, if you had four spades and one wild, you could turn that dud of a hand into a Flush. At Ignition Casino, wilds are twos and jokers. Just remember that there are more twos in the deck than Jokers, so you have a better shot at landing a two.
Wild online video poker games also feature two different types of rewards for two types of Royal Flush: one featuring a wild card and one without a wild card. The traditional Royal Flush (without a wild) offers a high payout. Our wild card online video poker games include Deuces Wild, Bonus Deuces Wild, Loose Deuces, and Joker Poker.
Jacks or Better
Looking for a sweet starting point to get familiar with online video poker? Jacks or Better is a fantastic option. This game gives you the chance to learn the basics without the added complexities of wilds or unconventional poker hands. The best part? You’re still playing for real money, so you could be stuffing your pockets with some mad stacks. In Jacks or Better, you’ve gotta keep an eye out for nine winning hands:
If you want a payout (and who wouldn’t?), you’ve gotta create one of the hands listed above. Do that and you’ll then be presented with an interesting proposal: double your payment by facing off with the dealer in a bonus round. The dealer will pick one card, and you’ll get four cards face-down. To double your cash, you simply need to grab a card that trumps the dealer’s.
Bonus Deuces Wild
Bonus Deuces Wild is one of our beloved wild card online video poker games in which twos are wild. As you might’ve guessed from the name, it’s also a bonus game, offering bonus payouts you won’t find in the standard Deuces Wild. Take a look at the two pay tables below to find out more about these games and the prizes you can win:
Bonus Deuces Wild
Double Bonus Poker
Double the bonuses, double the fun! That’s exactly what you’ll find in Double Bonus Poker. Land any three types of quads and you’ll score a tidy little profit. For instance, if you score four aces, you’ll earn the second-highest payout of 800 coins. Quads of four and under will score you 250 coins (when you bet the max). Quads from five to king lead to a payout of 225 coins. No matter what kind of quad you score, all these payments are higher the reward for a Four of a King in Jacks or Better. So, it’s not too shabby, right?
Here are the rewards you’ll get when you play Double Bonus Poker.
Here’s the cool thing about Joker Poker: it’s the one and only wild game that actually provides payouts for a Pair (but only for kings or better). It’s also the only one to offer an enormous 20,000-coin jackpot when you score a Sequential Royal Flush.
