Video Poker

Many casinos no longer offer blackjack games with casino bonuses. So, if you are looking for a casino game with a bonus and high payout, you should explore the game of video poker. With a casino’s second highest payout, at 99.54%, video poker is an entertaining and high payout online casino game.

Online Video Poker Payout Odds

Different casinos offer different payout percentages. Make sure to only play at casinos with a 99.54% payout. These casinos offer the maximum payout and include casinos that use software form Playtech (Europa Casino) and Microgaming software (River Belle Online Casino). If the casino is using Cryptologic software (Inter Casino), your best odds come with the game called “Double Bonus” which offers a 99.11% payout. Avoid any video poker games that use Boss Media software, as they present lower chances of wins.

When playing video poker online, remember to select the “Bet Max” option. Choosing this option increases your bet (5x), which will also increase your win. For example, if you were to get a Royal Flush, your winnings would be equal to your bet multiplied by 800. If you place a bet of $1, the “Bet Max” option will increase it by 5 times, thereby making your bet equal to $5. When using the Bet Max option we recommend you to place a bet of 25 cent to $1, thereby making it $1,25 - $5.

We also recommend playing other kinds of online poker video such as “Jacks or Better Power Poker,” “Jacks or Better Multihand” or “4-line Jacks or Better” which will allow you to meet the wager requirements faster.
