One of the reasons why Malaysia video poker is so popular is because it is a relatively simple game to master, especially if you have played classic poker in the past. The object of the game is simply to get the best possible poker hand by keeping or eliminating some or all of the cards that have been dealt to you on the screen.
Video poker machines are based on a computer. The game
they play is a software program, written to specific rules and designed to pay
out winning hands every certain number of hands played.
The payoff schedule, from best to least as it appears
on the game’s payoff display, is as follows:
- Royal Flush:
A-K-J-10 any sequence, but all in the same suit, spades, clubs, diamonds, or
- Straight Flush:
Any straight in any sequence, all in the same suit – e.g., 6-7-8-9-10.
- Straight: A
five consecutive value cards which are not in the same suit – e.g., 3-4-5-6-7,
all of suit.
- Four of a Kind:
Any four of the same value card – e.g., 5-5-5-5.
- Full House:
Any three same value cards with any two same value cards – e.g., 10-10-10-K-K.
Any five cards of any value, all in the same suit, but not as s straight of
royal flush, e.g., 6-2-K-7-Q all in hearts, diamonds, clubs, or spades.
- Two Pair:
Any two same value cards with any other two same value card – e.g., J-J with
10-10, suits don’t matter and the fifth card doesn’t matter.
A video poker machine use a standard 52-card deck,
shuffled electronically after each hand is played. The machine are set by rule,
to randomly select the first five cards dealt to the player at the beginning of
each hand, followed by a second set of five cards that the game keeps in check,
unseen by the player, until the player makes a selection of which of the first
five cards he will hold and which he will throw away.
It makes absolutely no difference which cards the
player holds and which he throws away. The second set of five cards is
predetermined, and the game will deal these cards, and only these cards, for
the duration of the current game.
If you already know poker, you can play video poker
with your fingers in your nose. Indeed, the only thing that this game requires
