PokerStars Begins Video Poker

PokerStars Begins Video Poker

Thursday, 8 October 2015

The push by PokerStars into the world of online casino games has taken another step forward following the operator's introduction of video poker.

A popular game in many bricks-and-mortar casinos across the United States, video poker is a mixture of the traditional game with more casino-style gambling and will be available to UK grinders from today.

As with all online casino games at PokerStars, there are to be various limits to choose from but the lowest will see players able to ante-up for as little as a penny.

The aim of the game is relatively simple and should be familiar to any seasoned poker player; make a qualifying hand (usually a pair of deuces+) and beat the dealer's holding.

At present, PokerStars is offering five video poker variants encompassing Deuces Wild, Double Bonus, Double Double Bonus, Jacks Or Better and Joker Poker. For those looking towards the heavens, each game has a potential jackpot of 4,000 coins, which means it's possible to win in excess of $8,000 from a single deal.

As yet the new video poker games aren't available for PokerStars' mobile platform but the product will more than likely be reconfigured for mobile play over the coming weeks.
