So when starting the gaming, you will first choose the size of the bet that you intend to make. It is now time for dealing, and the dealer will do it, dealing two cards to himself, on 4 boxes. Just choose one of the hands, and click on Win. You must click near the player, or near the dealer, because in that way you will bet on that person's win. Then the cards that are from other boxes will be removed, and on the table there will be a flop, a turn, and a river. Now the time will come to compare the hands for the dealer and the player. The winning cards will be highlighted, and the other cards will fade away.

If you have guessed correctly who wins, you will get a payout. You can either collect the win, or you can leave it in the pot. You can leave the entire amount, or half of it. If you want, you can also shuffle the cards in the hands, up to 3 times. Note that the dealer's hand will not change. Like in other arcade games with fixed odds, the payout will be lower if the chances of the outcome coming true are higher, and vice versa. You can choose only one of the 8 payouts offered.

Among free Video Poker games online, you will surely derive pleasure and excitement from playing this one:

  • because of the arcade style
  • because of the excitement of achieving wins
  • because of the option of shuffling the button when you don't like the player's hands.
