Playing the game of poker requires skill and knowledge of the game. Fortunately, Liberty Slots Casino has a cache of Video Poker Games that are not only fun to play, but offer players instructions on how to play the game and be successful at it at the same time.
We have listed our favorite Video Poker Games and we invite you to try them at Liberty Slots Casino. However, we realize that some of you may be playing video poker for the first time so here are some basic rules.
The games we have listed are all considered 5-card stud. Whether you need tens or jacks to open depends on the game. In some instances you will notice the 2 is a wild card and/or deuces (2s) and jokers are wild. These wild cards certainly make the game more interesting.
Before you begin play, read the paytable that is located on the left. The sequence of winning hands is important as that will determine whether you fold; continue to play; and how much you bet.
To begin with, you are dealt 5 cards. If the game you choose is Jacks or better, than the object of the game is to get a pair of Jacks in order to stay in the game. If, on the other hand, you are playing the same game with deuces wild; you will have a better chance of exceeding the Jacks or better minimum and may get 3 or 4 Jacks or a higher sequence in the chain. It all depends on the cards you keep, and the cards you wish to replace.
While there are some one-hand games, you will notice we also have included multi-hand games. The basic premise is the same for these games, except that you can win exceedingly higher payouts if playing more than one single hand. You basically play your hand, and the computer software places the cards where they will yield higher payouts.
Here are some tips: Take a look at the 5 cards dealt to you. If you have a pair or high cards – keep those and discard the rest. Click on the “draw” button to replace the discarded cards. If you open with Jacks or better, keep going; if you have a 5,6,7,8 – draw for a 4 or 9. If you have 2 pair; try for a full house. If you have 4 hearts in sequence, go for the Royal Flush – the highest payout in poker.
Take as much time as you need to decide which cards to discard and which cards to keep. This is especially significant when playing multihand poker. For more information, check out Liberty Slots Casino where you can read more about playing online video poker games.
Let’s take a look at three of our listed video poker games to give you a better idea of how these games work.
Multihand Aces and Faces is a Jacks or Better Video Poker Game. The minimum bet is $.50 and the maximum bet is $100. Multi-Hand Aces and Faces is a 2 to 4 hand Video Poker game. The payouts are higher in this game for 4-of-a-kind payouts of Aces and Face cards, although a Royal Flush has the highest payout of 4000 coins. There are no wild cards in Aces & Faces.
Ten-Hand Deuces Wild Poker is absolutely wild in its format! There are literally 10 hands available for you to play – except that how you play determines how the other 9 hands will fare. The paytable begins with 3-of-a-kind to a Royal Flush. The minimum bet is $.02 and the maximum bet is $1. A Natural Royal Flush pays out 4000 coins. Remember, deuces are wild so you can conceivably get 5-of-a-kind on any one or more of the 10 hands!

Deuces and Jokers Poker is another video game wherein both the deuces and jokers are wild! If you get one or more deuces or jokers in the final hand, this raises the payout stakes considerably. The minimum bet is $.25 and the maximum bet is $50.00. Let’s assume you get 4-of-a-kind in this poker game. The payout is 10000 coins! In this case, the 4 of a kind is worth more than a Royal Flush, which pays 4000 coins.

Another example of the different payouts relates to Multihand Joker Poker. In this game, a Natural Royal Flush is worth 5000 tokens. The term “natural” means that you need to get a Royal Flush without the use of wild cards.
That is why it is so important to read the paytables before you select a video poker game. Check out Liberty Slots Casino’s Video Poker Games and you will no doubt become hooked on these phenomenal games and lucrative payouts!
