How To Play
All American Video Poker is very easy to play, the aim of the game is simply to put together the best five-card poker hand that you can.
To start a round you first need to set your coin size and how many coins you want to bet on a hand. Above the cards you can see the game’s paytable and it has five columns. The columns correspond to how many coins you are betting, so if you bet one coin you are playing for the first column, two coins to play for the second column, and so on. You can use the ‘Bet One’ and ‘Bet Max’ buttons to adjust how many coins you are betting.
After setting your bet click on ‘Deal’ to receive five face up cards. You then need to click on those that you wish to hold and then click on ‘Deal’ once again in order to replace the remaining cards. If your initial five cards contain a winning hand then those cards will be automatically held. However, you can deselect them by clicking on them. After clicking on ‘Deal’ for a second time you will be paid out if you have a winning hand.
The lowest winning hand is a pair of Jacks or Better. It is followed by Two Pairs, Three of a Kind, Straight, Flush, Full House, Four of a Kind, Straight Flush and Royal Flush.
If you have formed a winning hand you are given the choice of ‘Double’, ‘Double Half’ or ‘Collect’. If you choose ‘Double’ or ‘Double Half’ you will bet either all or half of your winnings in an attempt to increase them. You are shown a face-up card and need to choose from four facedown cards to find one that is higher in value. Best of all, the process can be repeated.
The payouts change according to how many coins you have bet. If you are betting one coin per hand then Jacks or Better pays 1x, Two Pairs pays 1x, Three of a Kind pays 3x, Straight pays 8x, Flush pays 8x, Full House pays 8x, Four of a Kind pays 34x, Straight Flush pays 200x, and a Royal Flush pays 250x.
If you are playing with more than one coin then the payouts are multiplied by how many coins you have bet. For instance, if you are playing with four coins then a Straight would pay 32x (8 x 4). This rule is true for all hands except for a Royal Flush, which offers a boosted payout of 4000x if you are betting five coins per hand.
