With the excitement that all poker game bring, plus the speed of online casino play and the potential of multihand action, video poker games are unlike anything else in online casinos.
Video poker goes way back to the early days of video poker machines in land-based casinos, but if you want to play video poker at an online casino in Canada, you’re in good hands at PlayOJO. With top video poker games like Aces & Faces, Deuces Wild and Jacks or Better at your fingertips 24/7, you’re never too far from the chance to draw a straight flush.
Video poker is by far the easiest form of poker to play. It takes less a 1 minute to get started with OJO. Let’s see how it’s done with online video poker:
Complete the registration form OJO gives you and make a deposit
Search ‘video poker’ and pick from our popular video poker games
Choose the coin value and place your bet to receive your cards
Hold, draw and see if your hand gets an instant payout!
In Canada, particularly at PlayOJO, you’ll find all major variants of video poker games. The most popular ones would be Deuces Wild, Jacks or Better, and Aces & Faces. You’ll also find titles such as 2 Ways Royal, Joker Poker, Double Down Poker, and so on. You’ll also find many versions of free video poker games too.
Wild video poker is popular among card game fans, because of the extra action delivered by deuces and jokers. Joker Poker and Deuces Wild both comes in 1 Hand and 3 Hand variations, with any 2 or joker acting as a wild card.
There aren’t video poker bonuses in the same way slots have bonus features, but there are rules and tips. If you play 1 coin in Deuces Wild, for example, a royal flush pays 250x, but play 5 coins and the same hand pays 3,000x!
Aces & Faces is another popular online video poker title, where any 4-of-a-kind using Aces or ‘face cards’ (Kings, Queens or Jacks) have higher payout odds.
Even if you aren’t that familiar with the rules and strategies for playing video poker, it’s a game you can practice cheaply, with minimum bets starting from just 10 cents, or you can play free online video poker first before you play for real, provided you’ve created an account.
To know if online video poker will be a great fit for you, you need to ask a few questions. Do you like slot games? Do you like playing card games like Texas Hold’em? Do you like fast paced games against the computer? If your answers are yes for both questions, then yes, you should definitely give video poker online a try.
Video poker payouts aren’t as impressive as online slots, and it’s generally seen as a low variance game where the action is fun, and the strategy more important than playing for big wins. However you can still win many times your stake. In Joker Poker video poker, for example, if you play 5 coins, a Five of a Kind pays 1,000 coins and a royal flush pays 3,000 coins, a 600x return on your stake.
Obviously if you play free video poker, you can’t win any real money, but what you do earn is valuable experience and practice, which will put you in the best possible position when you play for real.
The average return to play in online video poker is similar to the top slots, and to casino games like roulette. Joker Poker has an RTP range from 98.07%-98.47%, depending on the number of coins you play. The Jacks or Better RTP at PlayOJO varies from 97.09%-98.25%.
