Atlantic City Poker Rules

Below you will find detailed the Atlantic city Poker rules as used by crptologic powered online casinos such as Intercasino, all figures shown are applicable to Intercasino as it is the most popular cyptologic powered casino.


The objective of Video Poker is to receive the highest ranked five-card poker hand possible.

An InterCasino Video Poker machine operates like any Video Poker machine found in the casinos throughout the world. The only difference, which is greatly favorable for the player, is that you can switch your bet from $0.25 to $5 a game without changing to another machine! A 52 card deck is used (53 for Joker Poker) and is reshuffled after each hand. The different combinations and their respective payoffs for each machine are shown in the Payoff section below.

How to Play

To begin playing Video Poker, you must deposit money into the machine. To do this, you must select a bill type ($100, $50, $20, $10, $5) from the panel on the Video Poker screen. You can toggle through the different bill types by clicking on the panel. Once you have made your selection, deposit the bill into the Video Poker machine by clicking on the bill deposit area. You should see a bill move from your clip into the Video Poker machine. You may then select which coin denomination you wish to play - $0.25, $1, $2, or $5. To increase or decrease denominations, please click on the "right arrow" or "left arrow" buttons, respectively, at the top of the Video Poker machine.

The amount of coins you have available within the machine is shown in the CREDITS field at the bottom of the Video Poker machine. For example, if you deposit $20 when the coin denomination selector is set to $1, you will see 20 in the CREDITS field. If you then click the "left arrow" button of the coin denomination selector (which changes the coin value to $0.25), you will then see that the CREDITS field has been changed to 80 coins. The Bet field displays the amount of coins you have selected to bet on that hand. Please note that the Balance field will not change when you change the coin denomination since it shows your balance in dollars (not coins).

You can now select either "Bet One" or "Bet Max" to choose how many coins you would like to play with up to a maximum of five coins. "Bet Max" will automatically let you play with all five coins.

When you are ready, click on the "Deal" button to distribute the cards. You will be given 5 cards.

The machine uses a 52 card deck (53 for Joker Poker) which is played fresh after each hand.

Hold onto the card(s) that you need in order to achieve the highest ranked poker hand possible. You may hold cards by simply clicking on them. The selected cards will shift out of the dealt hand and show a thumb tack holding them in place.

Once you have selected a given amount of cards to hold, click on the "Draw" button. The cards that were not marked with a thumb tack will be replaced. If after this replacement you have any combination of cards that qualifies for a payout, your credit will be increased by the amount of coins shown in the Paid field.

To change the type of Video Poker machine you are playing, click on "Games" in the menu bar and select the game you would like to play. When you change the game type, your credit and coin denominations will not change.

You can only change the Video Poker machines when your hand is finished, i.e. when the BET buttons are active.

Progressive Jackpot Games

The following games offer a progressive jackpot: 25 Super Jackpot and $1 Super Jackpot. Unlike regular video poker games, progressive video poker games operate on a fixed denomination. So, if you are playing 25 Super Jackpot and you would like to switch to $1 Super Jackpot, you need to exit the 25 Super Jackpot game and then enter the $1 Super Jackpot game.

If you are playing a regular video poker game for $2 or $5 and then switch to a progressive video poker game, the denomination and credits will change to the match the denomination of the game selected. The top payout on a progressive jackpot machine is not fixed as in regular video poker games. The Jackpot value starts from 1250 coins and grows each time anybody makes a bet.
