and Game Rules
Video poker is also known as draw poker. The
dealer uses a 52-card deck, which is played fresh after each hand.
The objective of the game is to get a combination of “Jacks or
Better” (two Jacks or a higher valued hand-see “Winning
Combinations” below). In order to play Video Poker:
Your cards are then
compared to the table of winning combinations (see below). If the
value of your hand is lower than 2 Jacks you lose your bet. If the
value of your hand is 2 Jack or better your payout is in relation to
the value of your hand (see “Winning Combinations” below) and the
amout that you bet.
- Press on the chips; thereby placing that amount in the
machines Credit Box, to be held by the machine.
- Press the “One” button, once for each $1 you wish to bet, or
the “Max” button to place the maximum bet of $5.
- After betting utilizing the “One” button, press the “Deal
Draw” button, whereupon you will be dealt one five-card poker
hand. (If the player utilizes the “Max” button to bet, the deal
will occur automatically.)
- After the first draw, press “Hold” under the cards, if any,
that you wish to keep.
- Press ”Draw” again, thereby replacing the cards that you have
not chosen to hold with new ones.
Double and Half-Double Playoff
When you produce a winning hand (a combination of 2 Jacks
or better) you are offered a playoff round in which you are given
the opportunity to “Double” or “Half Double” your winnings. If you
do not wish to participate in the playoff round, simply press “One”
or “Max” to continue playing as normal.
Please note: the playoff
round automatically ends after a total of five

winning as your bet, or press on “Half Double” to leave half of
your previous hand’s winnings as your bet.

then one card will turn face up.
- Press on one of the four cards that remain face down.
- If the card that you choose is of a higher value than the
card that the machine turned over--you win, and the special
round continues, if you wish.

participating in the playoff round, simply press “One” or
“Max” to continue playing as normal.
- You may once again press on the “Double” button to leave
your previous playoff round’s winning as your bet, or press on
“Half Double” to leave half of your previous playoff round’s
winnings as your bet.

that the machine turned over-it is a tie, or push and you
neither win, nor lose and the playoff round is over.

card that the machine turned over-you lose your bet and the
playoff round is over.
